Living On Go—All You Need Is Faith
There is belief, and there is faith. Diane Elms has faith.
A survivor by nature, Diane has lived a life few would envy. She was abandoned by her biological father and then again by her stepfather, visited by debilitating and mysterious diseases, and subject to plain bad luck. Nonetheless by faith she persevered and conquered all obstacles.
This slim 114-page memoir, taken from her journals, chronicles how something or someone guided her through it all.
As a toddler Diane survived a three-storey fall. Possibly as a result of this accident, in her mid-thirties she suddenly finds herself unable to walk out of the arena after her son’s hockey game. Her doctors are baffled, her muscle fibres will not hold together, and she faces a life of atrophy inevitably confined to a wheelchair. Her career as a professional photographer is over.
With customary doggedness, after 18 months of pain and suffering, Diane decides that her body may have failed her but her mind won’t. She becomes a financial consultant and then a branch manager for a financial institution.
At a work-related golf-tournament barbeque, the host tells her he has had a dream in which God gave him a message for her. The message: “Go to the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship and be healed.”
Not one to ignore a word from on high, Diane convinces her daughter to accompany her to the infamous healing church on the airport strip. To her surprise, she finds healing there.
Sometimes Diane's zeal backfires. At her high school reunion, having heard that a fellow classmate had died, she writes a memorial poem to commemorate his life. Three days after the reunion, she learns Tim is not dead and his family is furious.
Some readers will find parts of her book unbelievable—money delivered to her family when they need it and people healed through prayer. As Diane puts it, “When you choose to live on go, all things are possible.
Diane Elms is a registered practitioner of homeopathic medicine and an iridologist (someone who detects dis-ease and physical imbalances by examining changes in the iris).

Where to Begin...
How can I begin to explain how life has changed since 1995, when I was stricken with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue and sought Iridology as my last resort? I have but this one chance to explain why I changed careers, and consult with people from around the world on wellness, provide people with hope and answers through Iridology and travel internationally to spread the news of how “YOU” can take control.
Well here I go!
In May of 1995 I was lifting photography equipment from my vehicle trunk when I thought I pinched a nerve in my neck. My arms started to tingle; I couldn’t hold an object nor lift my arms to even comb my hair.
the same feeling began in my legs and then I knew it wasn’t a pinched nerve. After 17 months of being poked and prodded and even being told “It was all in my head”. The doctors said I had fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. They also said there was no cure, that I should learn to live with the pain and consider changing our home layout or moving because I was probably going to end up in a wheel chair.
didn’t understand, they couldn’t visibly see a difference in me. I didn’t have a broken leg yet I couldn’t lift my legs at times to walk, my daughter of 8 years old combed my hair at times because I couldn’t lift my arms and our family life changed tremendously. Depression set in for a period of time. I no longer could play baseball, ride my bike, cook dinner and I couldn’t be counted on to drive to hockey or soccer.
Mom, daughter, sister, friend, wife were all slipping away, I was none of the above anymore.
played games on me everyday, what’s tomorrow going to bring, we can't afford for me not to work, what worth or value am I, it hurts to stand, it hurts to sit, it hurts to lay down, God I just want to get a decent nights rest.
started to go, I'd be in a sentence and forget what I was saying, my self confidence diminished and still people on the outside couldn't see the difference on the inside of me.
Now you might thinking to yourself, she must not have taken care of herself throughout her life, she probably abused herself. Let me assure you I was not a smoker, a very light social drinker, I exercised and loved it, was a very upbeat positive person for the most part and loved my career as a professional photographer.
What I learned through Iridology and I now teach others, makes me determined to spread the word. What I had (and notice I said HAD) and many other health challenges could have been prevented through very, very simple steps... if i had only known...
The ignorant don't know they are ignorant because they just don't know!
It took me almost 18 months to restore my muscular system and become pain free. That 18 months taught me so much about the capability of what the body can do and how it can heal. I knew I needed to study Iridology so I would be able to help my friends and family, if they chose to listen to the information.
I searched for a qualified school, studied, graduated with A+ and became certified.
Now I have an international practice, and it feels wonderful to be a source of information to those who want it.
If I could heal, what the doctors said couldn't be done, and if many other people just like you and myself have gotten relief from health challenges such as arthritis, cancer, digestive challenges, tired, allergies, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, joints, weight challenges, acne, eczema, psoriasis, asthma, constipation, irritable bowel and many others
doesn't it make sense to at least try?
I now know, that going to the source of my health challenges instead of just the symptoms was the way to go, I was now in control. The time it took me to heal, become pain free and back in balance gave me the rest of my life to enjoy.
I couldn't even imagine where I would be physically if I hadn't taken control and felt I was worth the time and effort.
In 2009 I went back to school to obtain my degree in Homeopathic medicine and health sciences. The reason for returning to school was to be able to go beyond just the physical health of my patients. Now with Homeopathic medicine I am able to assist in the emotional, mental and physical health and wellbeing of my patients.
I pray you decide that YOU are worth the time and effort also, because YOU ARE.
