Hello fellow healers,
I am so happy to tell you that I have gone into complete remission and Ive even stopped ALL pain meds, immune suppressants - except small taper down dose of pred, etc! How, u ask? I am not sure..of course we can never be 100% sure... but my thought is this: A few wks ago I was in bad shape...& for months I had been reading about different healing methods - Eastern, Chinese, Russian, you name it, I have an entire library of books now. But in reading these books, I saw a common denominator: Each one advocated for ones soul to become part of the healing process. For yrs I have been begging that something/one take away my pain but I realized I was asking for me, for my personal benefit. I mean, of course I wanted to do so to be a better mother etc ...but it hit me like a brick that perhaps I was going about things all wrong! I then asked that take away my pain and misery so that I could serve human kind in any way necessary. And I began to meditate, try Tai Chi, Yoga. I read all of Dr. Sha's books, an MD and Eastern trained chinese physician. And I swear - no kidding - i woke up one recent morning and for the first time in yrs and yrs I felt good. I tapered off all the pain meds (with my physcians blessing) and I was in shock to not have pain! (I had been unable to get below 50 mcg of fentanyl patches for 6+ yrs! In fact 3 yrs ago I was taking 100mcg every 2 days!) This is truly a miracle to me honestly. I have no idea what my "job to serve" is yet but I would love to write books and help people!
I am certainly not advocating anyone stop meds - no way could I have survived without them these last several yrs. But I do urge you to look within yourself, read, educate yourself, and believe anything is possible! I love you all with all my heart and soul!
Thank you Thank you Thank you!
