Kathy's right ear has been deaf since birth.
An audiogram examination (attached) in November, 1999 demonstrated
her inability to hear anything with that ear.
Surgery was performed on the ear in March of
2000. It was discovered during the surgery that a different part
of the ear required surgery than was initially thought to have required
it, and she hadn't been asked to sign a consent form for that part
of the ear, so no surgery was performed on the ear. It was also
discovered during the procedure that Kathy was missing two bones
in her ear that were vital to the ability to hear.
After several BodyTalk sessions, Kathy noticed
that she was able to hear sounds she couldn't hear before. Her interest
piqued, she requested another audiogram exam in September, 2002
(attached). She advises that the examiner repeated the test two
times as he was convinced that the results he was seeing were impossible.
Kathy had an improvement
in hearing in her deaf ear of up to 30 decibels (the equivalent
of being able to hear someone whisper from 3 feet away).
