ANF Education Is MIND-BLOWING
Alexandra Zjalic is a physiotherapist from Austria that joined ANF Education two years ago.
Alexandra, welcome, and thank you for accepting my invitation.
When did you join ANF, and why?
I joined ANF in 2021, in April. Why? Because I have so many chronic pain patients and I have tried everything. Exercise, manual therapy, I tried everything, but I didn’t get the results that I wanted. So I thought there must be something in the world to help these chronic pain patients. There must be something.
And I googled. I found my colleague from Sweden, Marcus. Marcus Benitez. He is also doing ANF, and he is an ANF practitioner. I contacted Marcus, and I did a course.
What kind of expectations did you have? Did the education meet your needs and your expectations?
I didn’t know what to expect. At first, I wanted to check how it would go and maybe do one or two courses. But I was mind-blown.
And then, I joined the ANF family. We learn something new every time. It’s fascinating. And yes, we can help people better than before. I can help people better than before.
How would you describe ANF education? What did you learn in the ANF Academy that you’ve never learned elsewhere?
I learned so much. I learned how a body function and how all body processes function. And also that the whole body is one unit. Sometimes, my patients come to me and say that they can’t sleep or wake up between 1 AM and 3 AM. Now, I know that between 1 AM and 3 AM may be due to a liver problem. So it’s a lymphatic problem. And I can now explain what’s happening in their body. I couldn’t explain that before. I got so much from ANF. Whenever I do a new course, I say, “Wow!”
If you have one word, how would you describe ANF education?
I have two words – mind-blowing! It’s mind-blowing because you learn so many new things. The most important thing is how you can help people. You now have a tool to help people, and that’s wonderful.
How do your patients usually react to ANF Devices? And what was your reaction when you tried the Devices for the first time?
Whenever I do ANF, and I try ANF Devices, every time, I’m just… “Wow!” For example, when there’s swelling, and you put the ANF Devices, it is gone.
I have completed AP4 (level 4), and I’m in AP5, to be precise. I get more complicated patients with lymphatic problems and organ problems.
I can help these people. They come back to me and ask questions such as, “What is this? How can I walk or excercise now? How is it that I’m better now? Or how can I breathe now? I can do whatever I want now.”
Does that mean you can help reduce their pain within the first session?
Yes, I can. My goal is to get at least a 50% reduction every time. Sometimes, I get more. Sometimes it’s 80%, and sometimes it’s 90% pain reduction. I can reduce swelling, and people are just “wow.” They don’t know what to expect. I can help patients a lot with ANF.
What would your practice look like without ANF in your toolbox?
From this perspective, I can’t answer you because I use ANF and get so many good results. It’s tough to answer. The most important are the things that I know now that I didn’t know before. Now, if I imagine I don’t have the knowledge I have now, I don’t like it. I like this. I like it so much.
Please share with us two patient cases and the results you created using ANF Devices.
I know you want to share more because every time I ask therapists to share one or two patient cases, they want to share more because they often get results they didn’t expect to get; they want to share with the world. But let’s say two.
Okay, two. One patient came to me after she had hip surgery – left hip surgery. She had three or four surgeries in one year, not all hip surgeries, but she had several. She also had COVID infection three times. She came to me with a massive edema in the left hip. She said she didn’t know what happened, and the doctor wanted another surgery, but she didn’t want one. She was tired and said that she couldn’t do it anymore.
Sometimes, I also need to be careful what I say so the patient isn’t afraid. My colleagues and I can see so much. So I told her, Yes, I think you have a lymphatic problem. We can treat the lymph, but I don’t know how many times. We need to see how the body reacts. So, we did it. She said, “Okay, let’s go.” So we did it four times.
What do you mean by four times?
Yes, she visited me four times. She also had pain in her lower back and couldn’t sleep well. She was very tired. We did the lymphatic protocol four times. And after the fourth time, she came to me, and she didn’t have any pain in her lower back. She felt good and told her doctor that she didn’t want another surgery. She could exercise and felt like a new person.
Why did she have surgery in the first place?
She had a hip replacement.
Because I live with her friend, her friend told me that she came back to work and saw a completely different person. Her friend also wanted to try ANF Therapy®️. She said that she wants the same results, more energy, and to feel like her, like a new person.
And so that was the first case. The other case was a female with surgery on her left shoulder. She was in a car crash last year, which caused a frozen shoulder condition.
Did she have a limited range of motion, or was her shoulder completely blocked?
She had a limited range of motion. My patient, her friend, gave her my number and said I could help her. Her friend said to try because I treated her. I did one session with her; after that, she could move her shoulder completely. So yes, we are doing well.
Can a frozen shoulder be fixed in one session?
Yes, in one session, I can improve their range of movement.
You asked me what my practice would be like without ANF, for example, a frozen shoulder. I tried exercises, a manual approach, everything. Yes, you can get some results, but I wanted long-term results. But, with ANF, I can. ANF is just amazing.
What do you want to say to those considering joining ANF education?
Just do it. The amount of information and what you can do with your hands – We are doing everything with our hands, with our eyes, because we need to see and we need to feel. We are not magicians, but it’s magic.
You can feel what happens under the skin when you gain these advanced palpation skills. You can feel the muscle, and you can feel the organ.
When a patient says to you, “I have a headache. I have pain in my throat. I have a pain in my gut or something,” – you always think of lymphatic nerves or vagus nerves. You know, you can answer whenever they say or ask you something. You can reply, and you can also explain that answer.
So for me, that’s wonderful.
Support is significant when you need help or something. Mikel is there. Sanne is there. Colleagues are there. So we are not family by blood, but we are family. We are changing people’s lives.
When you get these first results, you will realize that you will be making excellent results with ANF.
Thank you, Alex!
