In February 1990, I was working on a ship in dry-dock in Germany. The ship was to be fitted with a new means of evacuation called the Marine Evacuation System. I was a training officer for ship emergency systems.
The MES consists of an inflatable slide and platform. The idea is to evacuate passengers and crew as quickly as possible. The slide is 15 metres long. I was the first person down on this system during training and I hit the bottom platform with a severe jolt. I was incapacitated and could not stand up. I was rushed to hospital.
I had a broken ankle and severe tendon and ligament damage to both ankles and compression injuries to my spine. It took about three years to walk again unaided. I was always in great pain in my legs and lower back. In 1997 I was told I would have to have an operation on my neck to remove a disc. I had a C5 – C6 discectomy. I would be have been a paraplegic without it. The operation was successful and I was walking again but not very far, albeit with a limp and different gait.
As the years have progressed I have experienced extreme pain from sciatica and recently could only walk with the aid of two sticks while being bent over. I have attended many physiotherapists over the years who relieved the pain for a little while.
I was recommended to see Ray Brown and I must admit I was sceptical but I made an appointment and after the first session I felt relief. Paul then advised that he would do a deeper spiritual operation on my neck to help me more in February 2016. I did not know what to think!
February came and he made two spiritual operations that day, the first operation was to release the nerves and take down the inflammation. The second one he reset the vertebras in my spine. I felt something move as he put his hands on my spine and pelvis and said “Your vertebras are now sorted Leslie, rest and do not do anything strenuous over the next few days”. It is now April 2017 and I have no pain, I can walk better but not great distances. It is definitely a continued work in progress whilst I am attending Paul’s clinics. My whole demeanour has changed due to not having that continuous nagging pain, and I am a lot happier. I feel so much better now that the pain has gone.
