A ‘DRAINING’ and ‘soul destroying’ regime of meditation and remedies has led one Weston woman to feel symptom-free of multiple sclerosis (MS).

Lizzie Drinkwater was told she had the disease 31 years ago and suffered a series of attacks which ranged from blurred vision, lethargy, numbness and depression.

The 62-year-old of Atlantic Road has now co-written and e-published a 100 page mini book called MS – A Healing Experience.

Lizzie has written the book with John Devereux, a homeopath, who prescribed her with a system of meditation and treatment.

A while after meeting and consulting with Mr Devereux in 1991 – eight years after she was diagnosed - Lizzie completed the Brecon 10-mile road race.

And now, after feeling symptom-free for the past 21 years, she has decided she wants to reach a wider audience and share her story over the internet via e-book.

She said: “John Devereux prescribed a regime of meditation, self-analysis and homeopathic remedies. It was hard work and at times draining - even soul-destroying - but in time, I came through to the point where the attacks stopped completely.

“In the book I said I felt a different person, gone were my phobias and problems, gone my worries and concerns.

“I could see straight and think clearly; I had never felt better in my life.

“My hope is that I can bring some hope and strength to other people who are in a similar position.”

Mr Devereux added: “It is widely known there is no magic bullet to cure multiple sclerosis.

“Liz’s recovery was due to her remarkable fortitude in obeying my strict rules over diet, natural medication and supplementation, mental gymnastics and emotional relief.”

MS – A Healing Experience is available in print or e-book including Amazon Kindle.
