How To Use Adversity As A Way To Finding Your Purpose


Dr. Millie Diericx was crippled and found herself in a wheelchair with a two month old child, being told that she would probably die within a few days.  Modern medicine played a role to keep her alive, but eventually she threw them in the bin and delved into every imaginable alternative medicine she could find in order to heal.  “Remaining on steroids in a dark room, all alone, waiting for the illness to take my body was worse than death to me; that was no life at all!” were her precise words to me in a recent interview where I asked her to explain how her experience helped to define her and her purpose.



On her journey, she discovered many therapies that actually worked, and realised that she not only needed to treat her physical body, but also her mind, her emotions and her spiritual connection in order to find hope and purpose.


She found purpose in the need to help other people, and understood that if she hadn’t had the disease herself and healed, she wouldn’t be in a position to help others do the same.  Having healed herself and thriving 15 years on, she has developed a unique triad of diagnosis when seeing patients in her clinic, which allows her to ultimately treat all four bodies – our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.


Triad of Diagnosis


  • The Quantum Resonance Machine

This is a procedure where you hold a rod and it measures electromagnetic signals from your body, allowing you to measure vitamin and enzyme levels and assess the functionality of organs which are then compared to a typically healthy range.


  • The Aura Machine

This reads your energy system – the chakras and the aura.  It will assess where there might be energy blocks or energetic sludge that needs shifting. Dr Diericx went on the explain that when you compare the energetic reading with the physical one, it is fascinating to see the correlation.  For example, as issue with the liver will also show up as an issue in the solar plexus (the third chakra located in the stomach region).  When this is the case, she went on to explain that treatment needs to be aimed at the both the emotional aspect and also the physical, otherwise the illness will flare up again from one source or the other.


  • Kinesiology

This is a process in which you ask the body, not the mind, what is wrong through a muscle tapping process.  She goes on to say that the mind can invent a story to justify ones symptoms, which might not in fact be the truth.  This process bypasses the mind and asks the body directly what it needs with questions that demand yes/no answers. “Any muscle will respond as a yes or no as the muscles are linked to the right side of the brain – the unconscious mind.  This way  the logical mind (the left side) cannot fool you with the stories.” She explained, and followed with an example of fatigue.


Logical thinking may tell you that you are tired because you have been working so hard.  Using the muscle tapping technique, the body response may actually be no, that’s not it.  As you keep asking, you may uncover that in fact you are tired because of an emotional issue.  This then allows her to focus healing on the root cause, which is emotional rather than purely physical in this case.  In other words, a good night’s sleep isn’t going to cut it.




A 360 degree approach to healing


Using treatments that include acupuncture, rehabilitation, allergy therapies, bio-magnetism reiki, resonance re-patterning, hypnosis, quantum consciousness, spiritual response technique and past-life regressions – to name just a few of the things she does, this really is a holistic approach to healing.


That is not to say that the days of a traditional prescription pad are over.  Far from it, but it certainly opens the mind up to more possibilities.  It brings to mind my own story when physically I seemed as healthy as can be and yet I was so exhausted and weak at times, with no logical explanation.  My own journey of meditating to discover the answers I needed and  energy healing in order to release the events of my past that had accumulated so much sludge along the way is what helped me most.


I come across so many people who suffer from chronic illnesses where traditional medicine manages to alleviate symptoms or progression, but not truly heal, and so Millie’s story is a true inspiration and offers hope.  She describes her story in detail in her best-selling book Befriending The Wolf.


I am truly in awe of the power of our minds, and how it has to ability to both make us sick, and to heal us.  This goes beyond just will-power, and shifts to the need for emotional release and spiritual connection.  As Dr Diericx so beautifully put it “nothing occurs in isolation, so how can we expect to heal ourselves in isolation.”
