Vic’s treatment starts


1aWe arrived in Johannesburg on a cold winter’s morning.  My father-in-law picked us up from the station.  My eyes were swollen from the crying.  Vic adored her grandparents so she was delighted to see them.  I felt scared, lost and lonely.

The Monday Vic and I met with Prof Majorkenis.  He explained that her diet had to change and that her “magnetic field was very weak”.  He would endeavour to “Strengthen her magnetic field…”  We would see him five days a week.  Vic’s new diet would exclude all sugar and starch, and she had to take a magnitude of homeopathic drops during the day.

“I make no promise – I try” he said.

The professor’s phone call from France was the first positive thing any medical professional ever uttered since Vic’s diagnosis.  The “Western” doctors clicked their tongues, looked into her eyes, called in another colleague and excitedly said “Just look at her eyes…”  Vic was “displayed” and I subjected her to it because I hoped that somewhere, someone would have a cure!

Vic developed a fear of doctors and nurses.  We could not wear white clothes as she would become hysterical with fear when she saw someone dressed in white!  She associated white clothes with doctors and pain.

I can still fear her cries of fear when the plaster-of-paris had to be removed from her arms and legs as she healed… She never trusted the saw that was used to cut the plaster-of-paris off!

I went off to the library and could find no information that made any sense to me.  I was so scared.  In South Africa in the 70’s homeopathy was considered almost satanic!  Homeopathy was not considered a science!

The treatment started on the same Monday.

On the Tuesday I started my new job!  My father-in-law had to drive me to work and back as my car was still in Bloemfontein.  I would leave work at 4pm, and we would rush home so I could get Vic to the Professor for her treatment.  Vic was in a Nursery School and loved her new teachers and friends.  I was lonely and miserable without my family.

Two weeks after I arrived in Johannesburg Tienie drove up with my car.  It immediately made a huge difference.  I had my independence back but with my independence came the responsibility of “big city” traffic!  I left home at 6am so I would avoid the peak-hour traffic!  It was a mere 25 minute drive to my office, and I only started work at 8am.  I was a little girl in a big city with a little girl suffering from a very rare disease.

Vic and I settled into a routine.  We celebrated her 3rd birthday in a strange, big city hoping and praying that the innocent looking drops and treatment would make a difference.

One afternoon we were sitting in the professor’s waiting room and there was a rather unattractive looking gentleman sitting opposite us.  No matter what I did I could not get Vic to divert her eyes.  The gentleman started winking at her and attempting to engage Vic in a conversation.  With her eyes fixed on his face Vic said in a loud whisper “Mommy, why is this man so ugly?”

I wanted to die of embarrassment.  The gentleman good-naturedly laughed and said “Kids….”!

Vic was just a normal little girl with a debilitating disease.

MAGNETIC RESONANCE THERAPY

Magnetic Resonance Therapy offers leading edge technology designed to both energize and maximize cellular function in the human body.

Humans are exposed daily to various forms of energy; be it light, sound etc. Each form of energy has it’s own unique influence on how one lives and feels. Similar to how a bright sunny day (light energy) can elevate one’s spirits emotionally or quiet solemn music (sound energy) can invoke feelings of sadness, humans too can be influenced positively by specific magnetic fields.

The Ill-effects Of Zero Gravity…

The Space Programs of the 1960’s provide interesting validation to the “ human” benefits of daily “exposure” to the earth’s magnetic field. A Russian astronaut (Yuri A. Gagarin – 1961) after circling the earth in zero gravity was left critically ill, to the extent that he literally had to be carried out of his space capsule on a stretcher! Following extensive testing as to the cause of his apparent state un-wellness, it was concluded that he was suffering from prolonged absence from the earth’s magnetic field!

Further Research into The Benefits Of Magnetic Fields…

Japanese researcher K. Nakagawa (1976) discovered that individuals, deficient in their “optimal” daily exposure to the earth’s magnetic field, can often display the following symptoms:

  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • lethargy
  • sadness
  • achiness and soreness of muscle and joints
  • back pain
  • decreased metabolism
  • diminished bone density
  • headaches

 

Schumann Frequencies …

What this all speaks to is the defined human benefit of being influenced daily to the earth’s magnetic field in sufficient amounts. Humans exist in an electrically charged atmosphere called the Ionosphere. The Ionosphere contains charges particles (called ions) that are continually charged by a multitude of lightening strikes that occur around the world on a daily basis. This charging of the atmosphere creates a specific narrow band of naturally occurring low frequency electromagnetic emissions called Schumann Frequencies (as discovered by Dr. Winfried Schumann – Physicist in 1956). Schumann believed that this band of magnetic frequencies offered unique healing properties.

Further Study Revealed….

At a cellular level, human cells resonate either in healthy vibrational states or they exist in varying forms of disharmonious (diseased) states of oscillation. For example, cells in “pain” (the result of trauma) will resonate in a disharmonious or less than ideal manner. These same cells, if exposed to Schumann frequencies, will once again vibrate in healthier modes. Both Red Blood cells and Macrophages vibrate more optimally and act more functionally (as seen under a microscope) after exposure to Schumann frequencies.

Optimal Cellular Function…

Schumann Frequencies are thought to resonate with the human body so as to re-establish and maintain harmonious activity at a cellular level, resulting in positive physiological responses. Re-establishing healthy cellular activity is directly related to the stimulatory effect Schumann Frequencies seem to impart at a cellular level on what are called “Sodium Potassium Pumps” in the cell membranes of every cell in the human body.

Sodium Potassium Pumps – The Key To Optimal Cellular Activity…

Individual cells in the body function ideally when properly energized. More specifically, Sodium-Potassium Pumps enhance both cellular function and as well retard the aging of all cells. Sodium-Potassium pumps accomplish this by both assisting in cellular growth and repair (in terms of the proper absorption of nutrients, vitamins and oxygen) and in cellular elimination (in terms of the  removal of waste and carbon dioxide). Sodium-potassium pumps also help maintain the function of specific surface membrane receptors located on the outer wall of all cells. These receptors are involved in the interplay of hormones and their regulatory effect on cellular and inter-cellular function and communication. In essence, strong Sodium-potassium pumps help create a healthy environment through which all living cells can thrive. Enhanced functional activity of these Sodium-Potassium pumps has been clinically linked to exposure to this specific range of natural electromagnetic fields … more specifically Schumann’s Frequencies!

Enhanced Cellular Function…

The entire metabolism of each cell is thus enhanced. This in turn results in:

  • increased blood flow throughout the body
  • enhanced oxygen delivery
  • a strengthened immune system
  • increased nutrients, vitamins and minerals absorption
  • enhanced respiration
  • increased bone density
  • better system detoxification (liver, kidneys, lungs and spleen)
  • enhanced cellular response to hormonal stimuli and favoured inter-cellular interfacing

In general… optimized cellular function, stabilized biological activity and enhanced overall cellular vitality. http://homeopathyoflondon.com/magnetic-resonance-therapy.php

  1. Tersia, I am so excited! You’ve begun writing your book – it’s so wonderful. I read your last post with rapt interest, and couldn’t wait to read more. Vic’s story is unbelievable and reading it as it unfolds is a treasure. Your book is going to go to places you cannot imagine and Vicky lives on in your words. I know your grief is a black sky over you right now. You are trudging along and writing this story is an amazing achievement as you struggle to breath right now. I feel you, Tersia. Keep going!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this.
    I read this and I just keep thinking; God bless the mothers who do so much to care for their children born with disorders like these. You become our nurses, our advocates, our teachers our counselors, our travelling companions, our best friends. You hold our hands at doctor appointments, dry our tears when life feels unbearably cruel, listen when we need to vent. You set aside your whole lives to help care for us and to be there for us.
    Honestly, the strength and love and the lengths that you will go to for us, I couldn’t survive this life and the pain without the limitless love and support that my mom has given me. I’m sure Vic felt the exact same way. ♥

  3. Your writing is very good, this is starting to read like a book – maybe you should write one!

    When I was a girl I asked an elderly man who lived across the street if he knew he was ugly. He laughed and said “I like this kid” even though I’m sure my mom was ready to die of embarrassment. But yes, it sound like Vic was a normal little girl to me. :)
