The Lightning Process, Jessica’s story

“It’s one thing to intellectually believe in the power of the Lightning Process but quite another to experience it!”

Jessica had an experience of surgery in the past which had lead to a severe reaction to the general anaesthetic. She was later able to use the Lightning Process tools to help her body react normally and recover from anaesthetics normally.  She had tried so many different approaches to improve her health before she finally decided to take the Lightning Process route. She embraced it totally and hasn’t looked back since, her osteopath noticed the improvements in her body straight away and she can now walk for miles easily and her life has changed dramatically for the better!

Jessica’s Story


“When I first opened my gluey eyes after the general anaesthetic in October, my body began to shake uncontrollably with the growing awareness of acute pain (not quite a 10 but near enough to scare the bejeebers out of me) and unsurprisingly a part of me dîd panic – thinking I was right back to day one of M.E.

Seventeen months earlier I’d woken from the same operation to find that within 36 hours I couldn’t propel one leg in front of the other due to the anaesthetic.

BUT, BUT, BUT this time was different. Thirty six hours came and went and I was still walking, I dîd feel lousy of course, but who wouldn’t? Then, on the fifth day, I found myself striding along the Euston Road with a huge grin on my face, in the full and clear knowledge that I was not going to react to the anaesthetic as before because my body, my brain, my belief system were and are completely different. It’s one thing to intellectually believe in the power of the Lightning Process but quite another to experience it!

I completed the L.P. in mid-September and every day and in every way I notice the difference in me, from all the different foods I can now gorge on to the miles and miles I’ve walked to letting the stressy things go.

Without the genius of Phil Parker and the kind, patient, humorous and wise tuition from Heather Thomas, I wouldn’t be writing this now. Thank you to all the people who’ve made the Lightning Process a reality. I feel I’ve been given a second chance or, more accurately, I’ve given myself a second chance. Hooray!”
