Jonathan taking about The Be Well Now Centre
After three months, I could walk around a mall,” says Carde, a coordinator in the digital art department of the British Columbia Institute of Technology. “It makes me cry to think of it now. I had no faith but as I got better, I thought ‘holy crap, this is working!’ I’m feeling about 80 per cent to what I was before.
I had been experiencing 24-hr-a-day headaches for about a year and a half. Most were mild and many were severe. My headaches were diagnosed as migraines after an MRI and confirmed by a neurologist. I pursued various strategies – local injections, acupuncture, numerous medications – all to little avail.
Although I was able to function for the most part, I was aware of the pain every minute of the day and so was unable to enjoy a normal life. Our family GP was diligent, supportive, and did everything possible to help, including multiple referrals to specialists. Still, the constant search for relief and the many trips to doctors’ offices was time consuming, taxing, and demoralizing.
I felt immediate relief after my very first session and have not had a migraine recurrence in over a month. I no longer take any medications for pain relief. Having been on one form of drug or another for such a long period of time, this benefit is of particular importance to me.
I was initially concerned with headaches but have benefited in other ways as well. Care was taken to assess and consider the overall health issues that might have been impacted by my childhood polio and the resultant imbalance to the right side of my body. The four Bowen treatments I have had to date have not only given me migraine relief but have addressed sciatic pain and shoulder/neck pain as well.
I would definitely recommend giving this treatment method a try. The manipulations are very gentle, and in my case, the pain relief immediate. As a treatment option, it is no more expensive that other methods, including prescription drugs, and with no side-effects.
I appreciated that the underlying issues that may have contributed to the headaches were considered first, as opposed to treating the symptoms only. I never felt forced to take more treatments – quite the opposite in fact.

Jonathan Damonte has been my personal homeopath for more years than I can remember. Most of our consultations have been over the phone due to geographical distance. I live in Ontario, Jonathon resides in British Columbia.
Jonathan has been through all my major and minor pathologies, including:
A burst bowel, with 2 hours to live, Jonathan was prescribing the correct remedies to my husband who had to sneak up the stairs to my hospital room to dispense to me. This involved extensive and supportive follow ups
Hemochromatosis, over production of iron in the liver, the urologist was insisting on a liver transplant. I had ‘until he found me a liver’ to reverse the very escalated numbers. Within 20 minutes of prescribing the correct remedy I was on my way to recovery. This involved extensive and supportive follow ups.
Burst aneurysm in the brain, with Jonathan’s assistance, the doctors declared that I was a miracle patient as the size and shape of the aneurysm there was no way I should have lived. My recover y involved extensive and supportive follow ups
All of this over the phone.
Jonathan has always been very available to me over the phone, through the day and into the evening.
Jonathan is a very committed to patient care, a well educated and experienced Homeopath.
I am very blessed to have him as my main care giver for my health.

I decided to make an appointment with Jonathan at Be Well Now because I was dealing with inflammation as well as digestive issues that were not changing using traditional methods. I was waking up in the morning with inflammation in my hands, knees and ankles and on top of that I was experiencing IBS that was uncomfortable and making it difficult to function daily.
Prior to the Be Well Now centre moving to Salt Spring I had been treated by Jonathan face-to-face using a combination of Bowen Technique and Homeopathy with great results. I was unsure about doing homeopathy over the phone but because I was struggling so much with these issues I decided to give it a try.
At the first appointment we went over my symptoms and talked about what kinds of things I was currently doing and some things I had done in the past. We set a plan for how to proceed and set a follow up. I also wanted to discuss how I could support my immune system prior to getting a vaccine.
I left this appointment, which was done over the phone, feeling positive and like we had a solid plan for moving forward, we also came up with a plan for building my immunity up prior to getting my vaccine.
It has been a few weeks now and I have had some amazing results, the inflammation is about 80% better and the IBS symptoms are significantly better everyday.
I would highly recommend having a phone or facetime appointment for homeopathy I was able to talk to Jonathan from the comfort of my home office and found it as effective as any in-person appointment I have had.
My arm is fantastic, slept through the night for the first time since the accident after our session yesterday! I recommend you to everyone who is showing any signs of pain;) Anyways thanks for your magic hands!
I came to Jonathan 2 weeks after I severely dislocated my shoulder in an accident and had to wait more then 8 hours to have it relocated! there was major muscle damage and it was almost completely immobile when I arrived at his office. Jonathan was very accommodating and gentle with my extremely fragile shoulder while treating me. Within three days of my initial session I was back driving my stick shift car! It was remarkable how fast I was improving, it felt like every hour there was a noticeable change! By my next session a week later my arm was functioning at 60%! Almost immediately after my second session the mobility jumped to 75% and steadily improving! I have a very active lifestyle and was dreading being out of the game for many months, as my doctors predicted, and thanks to Jonathan I am back at the barn and my shoulder is feeling great! I am a believer in Bowen therapy, The results speak for themselves!
Just wanted to let you know that the homeopathic remedy, along with your treatment, worked wonders to curbing my anxiety, and though the affects weren’t immediate, the swelling in my jaw and my overall calmness improved within a week from our session. Taking the homeopathic remedy every week/two weeks, along with maintaining a healthy(er) diet and exercise regime has managed to keep me definitely afloat, and away from filling my prescription for anti-depressants!
Thank you a million times! R.G.
