Fatigue and pain turned around with the Lightning Process

I remember when Odette came into the room on the first day of the Lightning Process Seminar in  experiencing pain and fatigue early 2016, and I am amazed at what she has achieved since that day. Since writing the testimonial below she has since made it to Everest base camp whilst on her second volunteering project, this time in Nepal!

Odette’s story

Odette back to fencing

“The lightning process completely changed my life and without it I’d still be sat on my sofa doing nothing along with most other chronic fatigue sufferers. After a long process of deciding what was making me so ill, I had stopped training at fencing (my passion) and was struggling to stay awake in class. I no longer did anything a normal 17 year old would do! I sat at home and barely moved because every move was too tiring. I was told by the hospital I would never fence again and that I wouldn’t complete my A levels. This is when i found the lightning process and i’m so glad i did! After day 1 walking in very fragile, I came out walked my dog and went into the gym (something I’d missed doing for a long time). The lightning process changed my life! 

After completing the process I began training again, I completed college, and got into my first choice university! On top of this, I also completed one of my biggest dreams and went volunteering in Tanzania for 7 weeks, where we built girls toilets, and also completed a 19 day trek of which we walked 270KM with at least 25KG bags. Before the lightning process that would have been totally impossible! I am now on a gap year living in Paris and training full time with Rio Bronze medallist and will be going oDisplaying image2.JPGut to Nepal to volunteer again and trek to Everest Base Camp. Without the lightning process none of these things would of been possible and I am forever grateful. I cannot thank Heather enough for all the help through the process and afterwards, you have truly changed my life!
