We met in Toronto in Oct of 2011. I purchased your goals setting CD which discussed Timeline Therapy, with expectation of helping my clients become more effective in setting and achieving goals. You had us go out three years to see what our futures held.
I was floored and did not expect what was presented when I did this exercise.
I found that I had stomach cancer.
I went to my doctor to discuss my intestinal problems and she said there was nothing I could do. I just needed to live with the problem. I hunted around and an found a doctor who would work with me. What we discovered was that I had undiagnosed Celiac disease (wheat gluten was attaching my intestine), and had been suffering from it for over 30 years.
Celiac patients have up to an 85% higher chance of cancers (many kinds). I have since taken all wheat and gluten and dairy out of my diet, lost 20 pounds and I feel better now that I have in the last 20 years.
Indirectly what you teach with NLP, I believed, saved my life. I also believe, though I am not yet brave enough to do the time line therapy yet, that I am well on the road to prevent cancer of the stomach and intestines.
