Do you suffer from a chronic illness?
Have you tried everything, but nothing worked?
You may have been told you just have to live with this - but there is a way to recover and lead a much happier, more energetic life.

Mel Abbott recovered from 11 years of chronic fatigue syndrome and has helped over 1300 people recover from a wide range of chronic illnesses with around 90% success rates for the last 8 years. Now you can get your own recovery started at this intro seminar in Wellington.

Mel has previously held 2.5-hour intro seminars and was astounded by the recovery stories that people sent to her! Some people made full recoveries while others experienced huge improvements and felt inspired to attend the full 4 day course, The Switch, that Mel teaches.

Given the huge success of this seminar, Mel is holding further seminars in both Auckland and Wellington. Bookings are essential to attend the event. Tickets are $180. If you make a full recovery - GREAT! If you still need The Switch, you will get a $100 discount off that course, so your seminar will only have cost you $80.

The intro seminar covers:
My own and others’ recovery stories to get you inspired and hopeful
Activities to focus you forwards onto your own recovery
The role of the stress response in chronic illness
Techniques to calm your stress response and anxiety, so that your body can recover
How to rewire your neural patterns away from chronic illness patterns
The neurology of chronic pain and how to start changing it
Simple interventions to resolve depression
How to generate more energy
How to curb emotional eating patterns
How emotions get trapped in the body and cause illness
An action plan for moving forwards into your own recovery

You will receive:
2.5 hours of fast paced information and techniques, followed by live Q&A
Handout of course information
Weekly support emails for a month with more techniques to aid your recovery
Guided audio track for a neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) process for recovery
$100 discount off The Switch, should you still need more help
Tea and snacks during the seminar.

We will probably finish at about 7.30pm and Mel will be available till 8 pm to talk to people afterwards.

Here is one man's story from the previous intro seminar:

"My body shut down from stress and exhaustion and I ended up in the hospital for some time and then went on to have 9 months off work. I couldn't walk to my letterbox and now I'm doing 10k walks a day and losing weight and changing my outlook on life. I'm going back to work full time in early January.
Through your recommendations from the 2-hour intro seminar, which both my wife and I use every day, and following the information in your emails, I have improved 98% and am a totally different person from the beginning of the year. I won’t need the 3-day course and would like you to take my name off the list and let someone else take my place. Both my wife and I would like to thank you for what you have achieved in getting me back to work and making me a better and happier person. We are telling everyone about Empower Therapies and using me as an example of what can be achieved if you put your mind to it!"

You can visit the website to find out more about Mel's work and to listen to her latest Radio NZ interview alongside Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr John Dunbar, who is a big supporter of her work. Her TV interviews and many movies of her client's recoveries are also available on her website.
