We arrived at Fortitude Valley and followed all the people with Yoga mats to the RNA Showgrounds.
I was very glad we had taken the mobility scooter because my feet were very sore from long days preparing clean meals and my ankles were weak. I have Congenital Talipes Equinovarus (severe club feet) and until recently have kept off my feet as much as possible. I am trying very hard to lose weight and stay active and as such I have daily pain much akin to a ‘twisted ankle’. A good diagram from ADAM below.
The red Monarch scooter was a bit more difficult as it is wider and taller but Philip managed beautifully.
We got off at Fortitude Valley Station where there was a small lift big enough for one mobility scooter at a time. A station guard pointed to the exit and gave us instructions on how to get to RNA Showgrounds and we scooted the one Kilometre with ease.
When we arrived at RNA Showgrounds I bought our tickets for the Mind Body Spirit Festival and talked to the amazing man on security at the door. He directed us to a place to park the mobility scooter near the ramp and kept a close watch on it during the day. We stored the heavy pamphlets in the large basket at the back of the red scooter and in the backpacks on the white one.
We arrived at the end of the Tibetan Tantric Healing presentation on stage.
After chanting, the Tibetan Lama talked about the Singing Bowls he had for sale to help fundraise his philanthropic efforts in Tibet, helping children and the disabled. I went over and told him that he was one of the main reasons for our visit to the Mind Body Spirit and our early start from Cleveland. I told him that I respected his efforts and asked if I could give him a hug, which he allowed. I then asked if I could take his photo in front of the Tibetan Tantric Healing stand, along with my husband Philip.
He happily agreed and I purchased one of his Tibetan Singing Bowls which he then blessed as I held it. What an amazing experience.

Another highlight of the Mind Body Spirit Festival was the Don Chisholm display ‘Have you got the GUTS to be REALLY healthy?” where I talked with Don for quite a while. He told me that he was a Multi Millionaire who had become sick and travelled the world looking for answers on how to heal himself, and then others. He wrote a book ‘Have you got the GUTS to be REALLY healthy?”
Don had noticed me moving about the Expo and observed that I might have a hip problem. I have one hip higher than the other which is one of the reasons why my videos always appear shaky. We had a talk about my Pan Hypopituitarism (under-developed pituitary gland and absent pituitary stalk), Addisons Disease (adrenal insufficiency), Hypothyroidism, Cushings Disease (long term Corticosteroid use), Congenital Talipes Equinovarus, Irritable Bowl Disease, Gluten sensitivity and low immunity.
On the walls of his Expo booth there was information about the testing he performs to help you get a clear idea of what is really going on with your body and what areas need to be addressed.
We all want to be healthy but very few of us are actually healthy, let alone really healthy.Don’s approach is working for thousands of people who come from all over the world and with a wide variety of conditions.An easy read with proven results.With disease on an ever increasing scale it is now apparent that almost all inhabitants of the western world are heading towards one disease or another. It seems that everyone has something that needs attention or conditions that are not showing signs of improvement.The message is this, “We are not what we eat, we are what we absorb and this is the very issue Don has concentrated on for the last 10 years. It is with these concept conditions even decades old have gone in a few months.Sugar cravings curved, energy increased, short term memory improvement, 47 years of diarrhoea gone in 60 days, autistic children going to normal school, operations cancelled, all by learning the simplicity of being healthy and it is all done by simply improving the gut.For to long we have used products that simple mask the problem, pain killers for pain with no attention to why the pain, antibiotics with little attention to enhancing the immune system or antidepressants without considering the view that the body is not healthy, and depression is a representation of that feeling.Have you got the guts points out the many myths that we have been led to believe are good for us, when in truth they are detrimental to our very existence. Don spent over 10 years traveling the world and worked in many clinics all over the world in his quest for his own health. The end result is a belief that there are no conditions that cannot be improved; many that supposedly have no cure are just a matter of dehydration combined with malnutrition.So do you feel you have the guts to be really healthy? Read Dons approach to health and see how easy it would be to be one or two rungs higher on your health
