In any Autoimmune Disease one must review the nutritional requirements for the brain and Mitochondria to achieve optimal function in order to restore health.

Dr Terry Wahls, a Neurologist and Professor of Medicine at The University of Iowa USA, shared her research that allowed her to recover from Secondary Progressive MS.

It was a game changer in Amanda's recovery. Once Amanda addressed her nutrition and focused on nourishing the mitochondria, she noticed a profound difference in her recovery.

Taking a balanced approach, Amanda believes a number of things in combination has allowed her to maintain outstanding results for over 7 years now.

That is what led her to team up with Damian Brown, together we collectively combine all of our research and personal experience of recovery from Autoimmune Diseases.

Whenever I fly down to Melbourne for business I always try and get an appointment with Amanda at Bend Like Bamboo. In only a few sessions she was able to help me work through my emotional struggles, from my recent marriage breakdown. Amanda also has a fantastic technique that treated my pelvic floor muscles that has stopped my bladder weakness and frequency problem I had suffered from since having kids. I can’t believe the difference now. When I leave my sessions I feel confident, strong and empowered with direction.
