Patients’ Stories

In this section, we present the personal stories of patients who tell about the change in their condition following treatment by the Ahava Raba Method, and how the new self-awareness they acquired led to improvement in their physical and emotional situations – and in their entire lives.

The Disappearance of a Cyst
Aliza came to be treated by the Ahava Raba Method after learning that she had to undergo abdominal surgery to remove a cyst. After several months of treatment, an ultrasound scan before the operation revealed that the cyst had disappeared and Aliza was discharged without surgery.

Treatment of Colitis
Read the story of Noga, a 26-year-old patient who suffered from colitis, a chronic inflammation of the large intestine (colon), and was facing a radical surgical procedure to remove her colon. After treatments by the Ahava Raba Method and acquiring self-awareness, her condition improved and the operation was cancelled. 

Self-empowerment
This is the inspiring story of Yochai, 31, who came to Ahava Raba House to hear an introductory lecture when he was 28 years old and dealing with a major crisis in his life. Yochai was studying a subject that did not suit him, had no life partner and was in difficult financial straits. Following the lecture, he underwent treatment and started studying at Ahava Raba House – and today he is in a totally different place.

Personal Story – The Treatment of Colitis
My name is Noga Barazani, I’m 26 years old and I live in Tel Aviv. For the past six years, I have been suffering from ulcerative colitis, a chronic inflammation of the large intestine. An autoimmune disease, its outbreak is believed to be caused by many factors, including genetic tendency, diet, environmental pollution and stress. There is no medicine to cure the condition, whose treatment is mainly symptomatic.

My last attack lasted two years, during which I regularly took cortisone and other drugs that play havoc with the body. I did not respond to the medicines, to precise nutritional guidelines or to any other nonconventional treatments.

Sam’s telephone number was one of the many recommendations I was given during that period. During our first conversation, I sought to understand what makes the method unique. He talked about energies, body/soul, language, imagination and other concepts that sounded dubious to me. But something about Sam caused me to start treatment anyway. I felt that despite my difficulty with believing in the holistic approach, there was something very rational, intelligent and persuasive about his words.

At a relatively early stage of my treatment, there was an unusual instance of deterioration in my condition accompanied by terrible pain. Sam said he was “opening my treatment.” I didn’t understand what he meant. All I know is that the next day, I was like new, or to be more exact, I returned to my previous condition of having a tolerable attack. For more than six months after this, I did not feel a significant improvement. I went back to my original skepticism and paranoia, and I found it difficult to ignore thoughts of charlatanism and lack of trust in people. For his part, Sam did not appear to be disturbed and continued to respond with the same serenity and total confidence about his method. He estimated the treatment would take about nine months.

After nine months of treatment without meaningful change in my condition, I gave up and chose to go for an operation to remove my entire colon – a non-recommended course of action that is usually resorted to only in extreme cases in which no other option remains.

At the same time, I participated wholeheartedly in Ahava Raba’s Elements and Tools Course so that I could understand the method by which I was being treated. Aside from the insights I had after analyzing visualizations using the Language of Ahava Raba, I also learned to use energy tools with physical and emotional therapeutic capabilities, which to my great wonderment, proved themselves immediately. My acquaintances also benefited from this capability and the more successes there were, the greater my trust in the method became.

On the day of my hospitalization, my surgery date was miraculously postponed by two weeks, during which there was such a significant improvement that I put off the operation for a while. After about a month, I realized that I would not need an operation after all.

Self-empowerment – A Letter from a Patient
My name is Yochai and I’m 31 years old. 

When I was 28 and going through a major crisis in my life, I went to an introductory lecture at Ahava Raba House at the recommendation of a good friend from my studies. I don’t intend to tell here about all the amazing changes I went through from that moment, because I’d need more Web pages than may actually exist.

But I would like to share the main highlights of the process I underwent. First, I want to note that in my opinion, the treatment experience and its results do not resemble in any way other forms of treatment, neither conventional nor holistic.

As I said, I came when I was 28 and not in a relationship, when I was dissatisfied with my studies and in a terrible financial situation. And all of that paled in relation to my biggest problem:

I did not have the strength or the energies to bring about change.

I started treatment with Michal. I confess that I have a hard time with new things and I was a bit skeptical in the beginning about the effect and results of the treatment. There’s no point in describing what I felt during the treatment. However, the results were rapid and revolutionary. I recommend to everyone to try it – it’s simply obligatory!!

After three or four months, I was promoted at work to a more important position. I started to date a girl, to whom I’m now engaged. I stopped the studies I didn’t like and today I’m studying law, together with working full-time and investing in the U.S. stock market.

I have motivation and aliveness that I hadn’t seen in myself for many years.

Today, after three years in Ahava Raba covering four courses and two years of treatment (with a one-year break while I was living abroad), there is no way to measure the worth of this treatment. I am now studying in the Therapists’ Course and every day I have experiences that others can only dream about.

To all those who want to stop treading water, to find a direction and start to live, I warmly recommend Ahava Raba.
