I have a health history as a failure to thrive infant, chronic fatigue in adolescence and fibromyalgia as a young woman. For me it took the form of migraines and muscle weakness. It continued to get worse and worse for many years, despite scripts for chronic pain, Cox 2 anti-inflam scripts, physical therapy and advice of all my docs, including a pain specialist. I was even prescribed oxycontin. The whole time I was throwing up my toes, I had no pain. Needless to say, it was not a viable option for relief.
In time a holistic practitioner, a kinesiologist did a body scan using muscle testing and allowed my body to speak through the strong or weak indicator muscle. I learned my adrenals were fatigued, my lymphatic system, liver and gallbladder, colon were weak. My thyroid was sluggish. I was riddled with Candida (yeast infectionse went on for months at a time) and heavy metal of mercury. No silver fillings ever, but my Mom did have fillings placed in her mouth while pregnant with me and I had been using condoms for birth control and the spermacide contains mercury.
The process of building, detoxification and learning began. Supplements for Candida and Adrenal support were started, Energetic corrections were made regularly. Every cell in my body began to dance. It was a foreign and very visceral feeling of celebration from within my body. I went to the hospital library (pre internet in my home) and began learning, checking out books from the library on all the things that were out of balance. I bought a trampoline, began the Body Ecology Diet, Regular Detox Foot Baths and continued with regular energy work. I also took Coral Calcium which is high in magnesium which calms the nerves and relaxes muscles, omega oils (natural anti-imflam), probiotics (anti-candida), enzymes (support digestive absorbtion), fiber (keep the elimination channel moving) and antioxidancts (scavenge free radicals and supports ligaments for me). Emotional release work freed me and I cried buckets of tears, as I stopped suppressing grief. Eventually a divorce and I walked away from a religious organization that kept me 'feeling cramped.' All aspects of my life were addressed, Water, Food, Rest, Exercise, Owning my Power, Relationship with myself and others. Within a year I had lost 50lbs, and was able to work again on a part time basis.
I now know I really thrive on a diet of greens and a small amount of red meat with fermented foods as a side. Low carbs and mostly gluten free supports my balance.
Have FAITH you can heal if you provide what you need for your body and mind. The quality of your life will change beyond what you can imagine if you give your body what it needs on every level.
Abigail, forum rule #4 states that you cannot post web sites that you have vested interest in. I took it out this time but you need to take it out of your signature if you did put it in there. Thanks!
