Hello everyone! After creating this website, I was a bit overwhelmed and stepped away for a while to regroup. Over the weekend, I attended a conference called Healer’s Code Live featuring Keri Nola. The conference was designed to help healers to improve their businesses, and I was inspired to do my first blog post. One of the things that was discussed in the conference was the importance of our stories, and since then I’ve been thinking about how to share a bit about my story with you.
As I was listening to the speakers, it came to me that the goal of the book that I’m writing and the work that I’m doing is to share the message that you can take control of your own healing. The importance of this message is astronomical. Everyone gets sick, but many get sick in ways that don’t fit into the box of the Western Medicine model. For broken bones, infections, and surgical needs, going to the doctor for treatment is necessary and effective. However, for people who are suffering from difficult to treat or “mysterious” illnesses, the message from Western Medicine is that there isn’t anything to be done, a disempowering and disheartening message. Worse, many of these sick people receive the message that they are somehow to blame for what they are experiencing, and shame is added to the stress of their illnesses.
For the thousands of people who fall into the latter category, Western Medicine isn’t the place to look for help, but there are other effective and well researched ways to seek treatment that traditional doctors and nurses often don’t share. In my book, I want to educate people as to how alternative treatments such as energy healing, yoga, and chiropractic can benefit them in immediate and tangible ways so that they can step away from their pain and illness and step toward a happier and healthier life.
If your doctor tells you that there is nothing more to be done, please don’t despair. All that message means is that there is nothing more that Western Medicine can do. It doesn’t mean that there isn’t any hope. There are many healing modalities, some much older than the Western Medicine model, and some more modern, that can offer relief.
As a woman who was told by my doctors that my own debilitating illness was probably “just anxiety” and that there was nothing more that could be done, I know just how terrifying that message is. Instead of giving up, I took control of my own healing, and so can you. I’m here to help you learn how.
