Is this Hi-Tech Pendant the Answer to Stress? We Tested it . . .

Testing times: writer Stephen Fenech was tested
for stress by osteopath Kerry Harrison
Champion golfer Ernie Els wears one. So does
motivational guru Anthony Robbins. Bart Cummings never takes his off
and is hoping for permission for his stable of thoroughbreds to get
their own version.
Texan model Jerry Hall has also managed to include
it as jewellery and one of her main fashion accessories.
What they all have in common is the QLink.
It is a pendant containing technology, which helps
your body cope with stress to enable it to function at its maximum
This it aims to achieve using a non-invasive
technique called Sympathetic Resonance Technology (SRT).
It was invented by university music teacher Robert
Williams in 1979 while researching subtle energy physics. He worked
with more than 50 scientists at Stanford University and the University
of California refining and trying to perfect the technology.
The original goal was to improve chemical and
electrical processes but, almost by accident, Williams saw the enormous
biological benefits. From then he decided that health applications
would be his priority.
Since that time he produced more than 2000
prototypes before coming up with the final form we see today.
Eastern science has always believed the body is
made of energy systems, which include the acupuncture points.
Western research has confirmed these systems exist
and also found that each system controls different parts of the body.
The National Institutes of Science in the US
accepted the term ‘‘biofield’’ in 1995 based on the strong evidence for
this type of energy.
Modern science tells us that constant stress can
disrupt your immune system. That disruption leads to breakdowns and a
vulnerability to sickness and disease. A study by the American Stress
Institute found that 43 per cent of all adults suffer adverse health
effects because of stress.
The same study also found that between 75 and 90
per cent of visits to general practitioners were for stress-related
And we’re not just talking about sleepless nights
and headaches either.
Stress has been linked to the major causes of
death including cancer, heart disease, lung ailments and suicide.
Stress can come from emotional, mental and
Some of the physical stressors are lack of sleep,
poor nutrition, flying long distances and pollutants.
Another serious physical stressor is
electromagnetic fields (EMF).
No chance of me coming into contact with them, you
might be thinking. Think again — EMF are emitted by mobile phones,
computers and electrical appliances.
Working in an office full of computers can leave
you feeling drained at the end of the day even though you spent most of
the day sitting down and off your feet. Mobile phones can also affect
you in an adverse way. And not just when you make or receive a call.
Having a phone in your pocket or even near you can
seriously affect your energy systems.
All of the above is what a bunch of scientists a
hell of a lot smarter than me have concluded through extensive
research. The QLink promoters claim the pendant can reduce the effect
of these stressors so your body can function in a normal and healthy
Sealed within each QLink’s casing is a special
resonating cell, which has been programmed to the human body’s optimum
There is also a tuning board to protect the
resonating cell from outside interruptions and an induction loop made
of 25m of tightly wound copper wire that is designed to create the
optimal energy field.
The theory goes that all of these components
combine to work like a tuning fork for your body and align your cells
and energy systems into balance.
After hearing all of this it was time to try this
out for myself.
The first thing I did was volunteer for a stress
test with osteopath Kerry Harrison.
She began the test by hooking me up to a computer
I had to hold a conductor in one hand and, by
pressing a probe on various parts of my hands and feet, she shot a tiny
charge through my body to test the condition of my energy systems.
Each system relates to a specific part of the body
like the nervous system, heart, lungs, joints, allergies, small and
large intestines and circulation.
She tested each pressure point on my hands and
even my feet which related to different systems in my body.
What the test found was that almost every single
meridian in my body was stressed. That was indicated on the result
sheet in red. Green indicated that a particular meridian was balanced.
Also observing the test was exclusive Australian
QLink distributor Michael Kelly.
Kelly first saw the QLink in 1997 at an Anthony
Robbins seminar given by American doctor Herbie Ross.
Kelly had locked the facet joints in his neck in
an accident and was living in constant pain.
An electrician by trade, Kelly struggled to get a
decent night’s sleep and found the EMF given off by his tools made his
condition even worse and eventually forced him to resign from his job.
‘‘I was in pain for a year and a half,’’ he said.
‘‘I decided to give the QLink a try and within a
few days I was feeling great.
‘‘I had tried everything from physio, chiropractic
and even acupuncture and while they relieved me they didn’t get rid of
Working in the offices of The Daily Telegraph I am
sitting in front of a computer for 80 per cent of my day.
There are also hundreds of other computers spread
out across the floor, not to mention my mobile phone and the mobiles of
all of my colleagues.
What that adds up to is a lot of electromagnetic
energy having a negative effect on my body’s natural energy balance.
I consider myself to be a fit and healthy person
who trains in the gym regularly and runs on the other days so I was
shocked to see that my body was in a weakened state. According to the
results, my body would be vulnerable to health problems, my immune
system and my organs wouldn’t function as they should.
It was time to repeat the test, this time wearing
the QLink pendant.
The pendant I was given was the size of a 20 cent
coin hung by a plain black cord.
I slipped it on and tucked it under my shirt and
waited a minute before starting the test again. I was amazed to see
that every meridian that was compromised minutes ago, was now in
It looked good on paper and that was impressive
enough but I wanted to test it in the real world. For the purposes of
this story I started wearing the pendant 24 hours a day.
As I said I am in good physical condition but I
have been troubled by regular neck and back pain — a legacy from my
rugby league career. It’s not unusual for me to get two or three
headaches a week as well as lower back pain. There are also regular
occasions where severe headaches have woken me from sleep and stayed
with me for much of the day.
In the four weeks I have been wearing it I haven’t
suffered a single headache.
I also found that I was a lot more energetic
after a long day in the office.
I have noticed I am even sleeping better.
Maybe. But take a look at some other wearers who
Ernie Els was given a QLink three weeks before his
British Open win at Muirfield in 2002.
He went on to win six tournaments in a row from
the end of 2002 to the early part 2003 including the World Matchplay,
Sun City Nedbank Challenge, the Mercedes Championship, the Sony Open,
the Johnnie Walker Classic and the Heineken Classic.
On February 8 he won the Heineken Classic for the
third time. Today there are more than 300 male and female professional
golfers on the tour who wear the QLink pendant to help them cope with
pressure and maintain their concentration and focus.
QLink wearers have made more cuts and won more
than 100 tournaments worldwide.
Fourteen players have won a tournament within 5-10
days of first trying the QLink including Mark Calcavecchia, Scott
McCarron and Swede Jesper Parnevik.
Other athletes and sporting identities who have
acknowledged the QLink benefits are Olympic Beach Volleyball Gold
medalist Natalie Cook, well-known disabled athlete John MacLean, 2002
Australian senior golf champion Mike Ferguson and leading horse
trainers Bart Cummings and John Morish.
While I’m still a way off winning my first major
golf tournament or training a Melbourne Cup winner I have noticed a
change for the better as has my family.
While I am a huge fan of technology I don’t want
to become a victim of it.
