To date there are no effective treatments available for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, and this in spite of millions spent on scientific research. Relief for family care providers and the medical community continues to elude us. Everyone is frustrated about what to say and what to do to improve the care of millions of individuals all over the world.

The mission of the International Caregivers Association ( is to change the course of dementia care. Our small, privately funded study demonstrated the GSHS, energy medicine, may hold a key to achieving relief of symptoms and remission of a patient’s recovery from Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Alzheimer’s and dementia is considered an irreversible, progressive disease by the medical community and the Alzheimer’s Association. This case study demonstrates that it is indeed possible to achieve remission of Alzheimer’s and dementia (also see It is promising news in the field of dementia, however more studies must be conducted using the GSHS.


The study was self-funded by Ethelle Lord, DM, and Richard Rankin, DC. All GSHS treatments were performed by Dr. Rankin. Dr. Lord was responsible for assisting and record keeping.

Every morning for over a year, Alban Maino, founder of called his grandmother, Rosette, in France, from Maine, to sing along with her. He made short film about his grandmother when she moved into a care facility in France,

As long as she could sing along and recognize his voice every morning for a period of a few years, Alban was a happy man and grandson. Then she became seriously ill; was hospitalized in France; and I received a call from him.

Rosette, a 93-year-old woman in an advanced stage of Alzheimer’s, was one of seven participants in this small study. Every GSHS treatment was done from a distance. She was in France, and the GSHS practitioner, Dr. Rankin, was in Arkansas in the United States.

Consent for participating in the study was received after Alban phoned about her imminent end-of-life condition. She was accepted in the study in February of 2016. The first GSHS treatment was done the following day.

The main phenomenon of this case study is that Rosette’s daughter (Alban’s mother), her family care provider, had been informed by Rosette’s doctor to return Rosette from the hospital to the care home, get hospice services for her, and make her funeral arrangements right away. But after the GSHS was used, Rosette enjoyed quality of life and optimal health up to the time of her death. Sadly, Rosette died of natural causes last summer.

1. An email message from Rosette’s daughter to Alban dated February 27th, 2016, reads as follows: “…tres fatiguée depuis 15 jours, pouvant à peine parler, alitée toute la journée…” (Rough English translation: …very tired for the past 15 days, hardly able to speak, in bed all day… ”.)Rosette 1 225x300

Rosette returned from hospital per her doctor’s order. Picture was taken by her daughter on February 27th, 2016.

2. Two days after the first email was received, a second email dated February 29th, 2016, was sent to Alban from his mother and reads as follows: “…assise, maquillée, repose, il est 10h du matin, je suis surprise du changement…” (Rough English translation: “…sitting, makeup on, rested, it is 10 a.m., I am surprised by the changes…”.)Rosette 2 300x225

3. A third email to Alban reporting Rosette’s GSHS progress dated March 2nd, 2016, reads as follows: “…je la retrouve courbée sur son deambulateur dans le couloir,elle peine mais marche. absente parfois sereine. elle se souviennt de certaines choses de sa mémoire immédiate telle que le nom de son amie qu’elle avait complétement perdu.” (Rough English translation: “…I found her bent over her walker in the hall, she is barely able to walk, appears absent and sometimes serene, she remembers certain short-term memories such as the name of her best friend, which she could never recall before this time.”)

4. Finally, a fourth email to report Rosette’s remission progress dated March 4th, 2016, reads as follows: “…dans son fauteuil elle m’attend ecoute sa musique, espére venir dimanche à la maison, je la questionne elle repond, toujours absente parfois…le personnel me dit qu’elle trouve son déambulateur trop lourd prefére etre dans le fauteil roulant pour se deplacer.” (Rough English translation: “…found her sitting in her armchair, waiting for me and listening to her music, she hopes to come home on Sunday. I asked her some questions and she answered me, appears absent at times… the staff tells me that she finds her walker too heavy to use and prefers to use the wheelchair as her mode of transportation.”)Rosette 3 300x225

5. In addition to the email reports from Rosette’s primary caregiver, her daughter, Alban, her grandson, reported the following in the last week of March of 2016 when talking about his grandmother: “Good progress this week!” There were no details in his short comment.

About the Good Shepherd Healing System (GSHS)

The GSHS is a new form of energy medicine delivered by a GSHS practitioner. It is delivered by voice command to a specific body system. For those living with dementia it is delivered to the brain and other body systems that are responsible for causing dementia (heart, lungs, kidneys, etc.). The GSHS practitioner does not diagnose anyone. The person seeking GSHS applications always comes with their own medical diagnosis.

For the purpose of explaining how energy healing works, energy refers to anything that vibrates. Every vibration has a frequency, and vibrations are quantified by numbers. For example, voice and sound are two types of energy communication. When a dog whistle is used, the high-frequency sound it makes has meaning for a dog; however, humans are not able to react to the dog whistle because they do not hear it and therefore it does not have the same meaning for a human as it has for a dog. Although other research is ongoing in energy healing for dementia (e.g. at Harvard), the GSHS is the first approach to achieve remission in dementia patients.

The GSHS is designed to quickly identify the problems in the person living with Alzheimer’s or dementia, eliminate and neutralize those problems, and achieve optimal health for the individual. Because we believe that it is possible to ACHIEVE REMISSION IN ALZHEIMER’S, return meaningful living to millions of individuals living with dementia, improve their cognitive and physical abilities, and enable them to experience optimal health, the GSHS is now available to those who have a desire to STOP dementia from progressing and regain as much as possible, cognitively and physically.


One of the requirements of research participants was that an observer report any and all progress, good or poor, each time behavioral, physical, or emotional changes were observed. Several participants reported only occasionally when time permitted. All reported progressive cognitive and physical improvements in activities of daily living.

Rosette’s progressive improvements were recorded in a series of emails and published in this article for the reader. As evidenced by the report and photos sent by her daughter to her grandson, remarkable physical, emotional, and psychological changes were recorded over a 30-day period in 2016. All these remarkable changes were observable following the first GSHS treatment and within only 30 days following the treatment.


Rosette was able to greatly reduce her symptoms, speak and recall lost information, and most of all she was able to once more enjoy her visits with family and friends. Much like one other research participants, she was able to have an awareness of her environment to the time of her death.

The GSHS will one day be widely used to achieve remission in those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia. This treatment is equivalent to dropping an atomic bomb into the healthcare system, with dementia as its target.

Because quality of life and quality of care are immediately affected after only one GSHS treatment, this treatment has the potential to greatly reduce the high cost of dementia care for families and healthcare budgets.

Every change reported by the care provider for those in this study was reviewed and analyzed directly afterwards by Drs. Lord and Rankin. Some of the reports were verbal and noted by Dr. Lord for the records.

The content provided by the author is offered on an informational basis only and as a service made available to those interested in achieving remission of Alzheimer or dementia. The information provided in this article applies to one participant only and does not address any other circumstances. Each individual is unique and each has a different optimal health measure. The Good Shepherd Healing System (GSHS) does not require any herbal or nutritional supplements, any special diet, or any physical activity. The GSHS does not cause unwanted side effects, death, or worsening of an existing condition as it uses energy to create optimal health in each individual. Always consults with your physician first who is qualified to make a diagnosis and is also qualified to confirm any change in your condition following a GSHS treatment.
