My 23-year-old daughter was involved in a head on collision with a drunken driver. Major injuries were a dislocated left hip, compound fracture of right tibia, fracture of right fibula, broken nose, contusions and bruising of arms and body, associated physical and mental pain. Fractures were surgically repaired with titanium inserts. In hospital 4 days, and released to a hospital bed at home with an abduction pillow to stabilize legs. Codeine for pain. QGM was applied to bruises on arms which were markedly improved in 2 days. (Mind) applied continuously 24 hours a day for the next 10 weeks. Able to eliminate pain medication after 10 days. Had no trouble sleeping. Mental attitude was excellent considering her confinement. Mostly she applied QGM to area of the fractures and on dislocated hip. Visiting nurses and therapists commented on her optimism and rapid progress, as did her orthopedic surgeon.
