My name is Beth Daniel and I’m the co-founder of Quantum Techniques, the finest work in energy medicine, most comprehensive system on the planet today, in my opinion. The reason I’m talking to you today is that I wouldn’t be here today without Quantum Techniques. I would be dead, fifteen years ago. My life, when I called Quantum Techniques, was no life at all. I was the girl in the bubble. I couldn’t leave my home, I couldn’t go to my job. I was a psychologist. I had to leave my job. I lost the relationship that I was in. I lived with an oxygen tank, two of them, epinephrine pens for the anaphylactic reactions that I would have to foods and other substances.
I was in my early thirties and I thought my life was over. I’d always been very persistent so I tried really hard to hang in there but wasn’t working too well. I had gone to many different clinics which you’ve probably heard mentioned before, Mayo Clinic was one of them. I had diagnosis of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome. Some people thought I had an eating disorder, some people thought I had depression. Environmental illness, multiple chemical sensitivity, severe, allergies to foods and environmental toxins, terrible constipation my entire life. I never knew why. I didn’t think it was normal for people to go to the bathroom.
I had a lot of issues. I never drank water. I guess I probably should have figured that one out, I was a fairly intelligent person but I hardly ever drank water. I drank a ton of NutraSweet and Diet Cokes all day long and bagels and cream cheese and maybe throw a lettuce leaf in there once in a while. My diet was terrible and I was dehydrated, with terrible nutritional deficiencies. I had a lot of infection problems. I had a chronic sore throat since I was a child that never really had gone away. It was constant, and I had swollen lymph nodes and some back here that my internist in the Midwest actually thought I had lymphatic cancer when I first went to a doctor to see what was wrong with me. Then, they thought it probably was some infectious disease from where had I been travelling. You name it. I had a lot of active viral bacterial infections. I had a massive internal candida infection, terrible gut problems. I had parasites. Dry skin, dry hair, nails that were breaking off. Couldn’t eat anything.
I ate two kinds of food without going into an anaphylactic reaction, needing an oxygen tank to breathe. I ate two kinds of flash dried sweet potatoes. You probably have heard Steve talk about that. He probably talks about that more than I do. I had two types of flash dried sweet potatoes that I ordered from this on-line group that helped people that had severe environmental sensitivities and food allergies. I was grateful they were there but sometimes my food wouldn’t show up on time so I just wouldn’t eat anything for three days. I remember my mom crying about that.
I went to a support group when I was living in Los Angeles after I’d been ill for a while. All of the people there had chronic illness, a lot of environmental illness, autoimmune problems. I had terrible immune system. I was sick all the time. Like I said, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, something. I went to this group. Well, I think I went one time to the actual group because I couldn’t walk in the door. They thought it was environmentally friendly but I could smell all kinds of chemicals and stuff in the location where they had these meeting and I had to go home. The woman who ran the group was very loving and kind and gave me information every week so I could feel part of it but I couldn’t go. She gave me my current husband, Doctor Stephen Daniel’s business card and said, “You need to call this person. He helped me clear 85 allergies in a matter of a week. We all think you’re going to die and you should probably contact your family. You probably need to go home but you should give this guy a call because if anybody can help you, he can.”
I had tried multiple traditional neurologists, allergists, internists, infectious disease specialists. The doctors tried to make me go to a psychiatrist because they thought it was all in my head; I just wasn’t sick at all, how could I have all these symptoms? I had tried a lot of things and I had done chiropractic and acupuncture and I had tried some herbs and I always had terrible reactions to those. I tried some supplements and I had terrible reactions to those. Some massage and I would have a reaction to that. It was too much for my body. I did some colon hydrotherapy that was actually helpful since I’ve been constipated since I was three, but nothing was making me better.
I always kind of knew there was something wrong with me emotionally. What I mean by that was I was straight A’s, always. I went to graduate school, the highest ranking graduate school from my degree in the country. I looked decent. I had nothing to complain about in that department. I always had a lot of friends. I was really popular. I was great in sports. I had the world on a string, you would think, but something inside always said, “Something’s wrong. Something’s just not right.” I didn’t know. I had no idea what it was. I knew I was a perfectionist and I was driven to be perfect in everything, a big time overachiever but it just seemed like there was always something I wasn’t aware of.
I tried the work of Quantum Techniques and working with Stephen on the phone, remotely was beautiful. I couldn’t go anywhere to see anybody, to do any kind of healing work anyway at that point so thank God I could pick up the phone and call. I wasn’t living in the present moment. What I mean by that is, and I was a psychologist so I had some understanding of this stuff, the unconscious lives in a trauma state from a time zone when the trauma occurred. I remembered nothing of my early childhood.
My brother remembers details of everything so if he’ll say something to me, “Remember such and such when we were kids?” “Oh, yeah, I do remember,” and then I’d remember and it comes back and it was a great fun memory with my brother or my family but there was this part that was just so unavailable about my childhood. I always wondered what in the world that was about and I knew it was affecting me because I also developed some OCD when I was in fifth grade, around age 10. Like when you count things incessantly or you have to touch something a number of times to feel safe. I had that when I was a kid. I had an eating disorder. I went through some anorexia for a while and then some bulimia in high school and college and then when I got married the first time I started throwing up again, so why? It didn’t make sense.
I knew there was something else. I also knew I wasn’t going to tell anybody close enough to me so they could try to figure it out. That’s why the phone work was beautiful for me. I had gone to a female psychologist for some eating issues in my first marriage and she was really nice but I wasn’t going to let her get close. On top of that, I was always a person that said “yes” to everything and aid “no” to nothing so I would say “yes” to people when I wanted to say “no.” The only way I could say “no” was getting sick so I don’t know that I was willing to give that up either.
I called Doctor Daniel. I had seen a picture of him, looked like a really nice guy. I was safe talking to him because we were on the phone and I could hang up at any moment if I felt uncomfortable with the question. I was very guarded. I mean, if I was working with me now, I would say, “Wow. She is really locked up on some things here.” He had been a psychologist so for him doing the emotional work with me, I think was really easy and for me, it is now with others because I’ve been through it myself. Now it’s like second nature but I didn’t want to let anybody in, you see. That was the issue.
On the phone, it was okay, it was safe because I was in control. We didn’t have somebody ogling me or checking me out, it was like he was really there to help me on the phone. He knew nothing about what I look like. I didn’t send him my picture, I wasn’t going to do that. That really helped and what happened was that I, in my childhood, had gone through some trauma with a neighbor that had really put my body into a fear state and a real state of dissociative trauma, and we work with people with that all the time at QT.
What happened was that my cells were really in a fear state while you keep going through life. You keep doing what you got to do. I became a huge perfectionist, like I said, kind of obsessive compulsive, all of those things. I was going to be perfect to keep myself safe. I was going to be in control of everything to keep myself safe. I needed to go and heal all of that but I didn’t need to remember specifics about all of the traumas in order to heal. That’s something about Quantum Techniques that’s really special is you don’t have to remember exactly what happened with who, what date or year it was and go back into everything like you do with some methods of healing. None of that. I never would have done that so then I never would have healed.
I needed a system like QT that was elegant and that allowed me to go at my own pace and I didn’t have to remember blow-by-blow of all these things that I’ve repressed and didn’t remember. I went through all of that and then, I think what happened, and I explain this to clients a lot, is that something in your adult life typically triggers that original fear state from childhood that you’ve repressed. Once that’s triggered, a cascade of all that stuff comes back and that’s when my symptoms got really bad. I had had a diagnosis of cancer in my early to mid-twenties and went into an incredible fear state. I was like, “I’m going to die. My life is over.” I was terrified. Well, I healed from all of that but what happened was now I had fibromyalgia, allergies, chronic fatigue, environmental illness, terrible gut problems, candida, all these infections now, after the cancer was long gone.
What happened was I didn’t get it at the time, I went back into a fear state which triggered that old childhood stuff that I had so deeply repressed and been hiding behind a wall for so many years so all those symptoms came and I needed to deal with it or die. 85 pounds, 5’7″, couldn’t eat, couldn’t leave my house. I remember looking online, looking at multiple chemical sensitivities, environmental illness, what did that mean and basically, the outcome was hopeless. All these people were writing online, “Just choose to live in a bubble where you’ll be fine. No problem. Just have your life this way.” No. That wasn’t for me. I know people who make that choice. Saying, “It’s okay. I’ll just live in a bubble the rest of my life.” No way, not this girl. No way. I would rather die than live in a bubble. I refused to live in a bubble and I was going to do whatever it took to get better.
I called Stephen and then I called my dad to come and pick me up to take me home to the Midwest because I thought I was going to die. I didn’t know if this Quantum Techniques was going to work or not so I had a plan, “I’ll try it but take me home so I can at least see my family.” Lo and behold, it worked. If it can work for me, it can work for you because I was as stubborn and as much of a guarded know-it-all as you can get. I wasn’t going to let anything through. If I can heal, so can you. That’s my story.
