ENERGY MATTERS for ME/CFS and many other health issues

Energy Matters – turn ME around.

It’s puzzling, isn’t it? With so much energy throughout nature, how can anyone possibly feel fatigued? Why is fatigue a daily experience for millions of people? Why for many of them is it the dominant experience of their lives?

Deepak Chopra, Boundless Energy

Are you (or someone you know) sick and tired of being sick and tired? It’s time to learn how to recover & manage your energy easily - & make huge improvements in your life, health and vitality.

The Treatment of ME/CFS

Energy Matters combines the best of both the energy and mind–based complementary approaches. It is so powerful – addressing the emotions and the beliefs behind the fatigue. and providing simple methods that anyone can use for managing their own energy. It works perfectly to compliment and enhance a patient’s existing treatments. The techniques can be used by an individual working on themselves and listening to their bodies; or with a trained and skilled practitioner like myself working with their client to help them to remove the causes for the fatigue, come up with new life strategies and promote optimum health and energy. The solutions come from the client rather than the therapist and so are tailor made for the individual.

Conventional approaches diagnose ME/CFS by eliminating other serious illnesses through tests. Treatments are then medical (treating physical symptoms with drugs, hormones, surgery) and / or psychological (dealing with the conscious mind) to get rid of the symptoms. The current approach is PACE which produces c.25% recovery rate. Most complementary therapies are holistic in their approach, treating the person as a whole. Many seek to restore the correct flow of energy through the body. The ‘mind body’ approaches such as NLP and hypnotherapy are excellent for eliminating the cause of the problem but are not experienced at restoring the flow of energy.

The most effective treatments to date have used a variety of approaches. The use of ‘mind’ therapies to re-educate the individual and the working of their body; nutrients and optimum diet to reduce environmental stresses and help the body recover; hormonal treatments to restore the correct balance and functioning of the body.

Until now, little has been done to address the problems of lack of energy directly. This is what makes the Energy Matters approach so effective. For those with ME/CFS, there will be times when these practices and interventions alone will be all that is required to restore energy and health permanently. Others may not yet be at the stage to make a recovery; others will need nutritional support and hormonal treatment. Whatever an individual’s situation, an awareness of what has happened to their energy in the past and how they can manage it now and in the future is invaluable to the individual and practitioner.

It is important that changes are made to promote recovery otherwise a return of energy which takes an individual back to the source of the stress will result in a relapse. Changes should be made at a pace to suit the individual, devised by the individual as a result of them listening to their body and unconscious mind.
The solution for ME/CFS is all about Me! It is about putting your own oxygen mask on first, attending to your own needs and only then attending to others if you choose to do so. This probably involves a whole shift in the way people think, their beliefs and the way they regard themselves.

I’m really looking forward to working with you and helping you to move forward with your life.

What others have found:

‘Your guidance has been absolutely brilliant – I’m over ME and no longer suffer its symptoms. I’m continuing to work with my energy and am leading the life I want.'  JG Beds

'I owe Diana tremendous thanks for the help she gave me. She put me back in control of my life; the benefits will remain with me forever. I would thoroughly recommend Diana’s guidance and advice.'  DF London

'After suffering with fatigue for 20 years and diagnosed with ME 13 years ago, this was the last big step in helping me to wellness. I had never before got over the pain in my legs when I did even the lightest exercise and I would take months to recover. I am now able to run, walk up stairs and do things without pain and debilitating tiredness.'  H Herts (working with my Energy Matters colleague Olive Hickmott) 


My own experience:  I had ME / CFS and multiple chemical and food sensitivities for 11 years. The final piece in my jigsaw of recovery was provided by Hypnotherapy and I recovered rapidly. During the last 6 years I have been studying and refining my approach to health - particularly to ME/CFS. Which means that, using this approach, I can help you too. Appointments are arranged to meet individual requirements. Both 1-to-1 and group sessions can be face-to-face or over the 'phone (where people live at a distance or too tired to come to me). Individual or group sessions are empowering and fun!

Energy Matters is not a replacement for conventional medical practice or complementary medicine. It enhances and adds to all of these, empowering the individual to take action using the resources they already possess to positively affect their health and life in general.
