After leaving school in Zimbabwe, Mike practised for 3 years as an Intermediate Life Support Paramedic in Pretoria, South Africa. He became disillusioned with not being able to follow through on patients whose emergencies he had responded to but whom he had handed over to attending doctors, so he decided to become a doctor himself.
This involved a return to Zimbabwe for further schooling in physics, chemistry and biology, before enrolling in medical school in Romania for his first year of study. From Romania Mike returned to the University of Zimbabwe for his second year of medicine. During both years of study Mike suffered medical issues that were highly unusual for a fit young man and got very little help or relief from his doctors, so he began to question his career choice.
Suffering from intense back pain, a numb leg and an injured wrist, Mike visited Jacquie – albeit with scepticism – and awoke the next day with feeling in his leg and much less sceptical. 12 treatments later his back pain had disappeared completely and he had witnessed Jacquie healing a teenage girl who had severed the tendons and nerves in her right leg and been consigned to life as an invalid, but who is now on a sports scholarship in Australia.
Mike decided to embark on a third career change, dropping medical school to train as a MyoReformation practitioner. Not even a year after graduating Mike’s practice is fully booked and he looks forward to continuing to assist people in the same way that he was helped by the discipline.
