12 Steps to Balance the Body

12 Steps to Balance the Body

Beyond Fibromyalgia – Balance the Body

The Beyond Fibromyalgia program is a comprehensive system of healing and balancing all aspects of who we are, including our body, emotions, mind, expression, spirit, and energy.  The body is the foundation and connects with all other dimensions.

In this article, we are going to introduce 12 steps to support your body in rebuilding wellness.

Steps 1-8 talk about the basics to becoming and staying healthy.  Steps 9-12, give us an opportunity to go to a deeper level of healing and well-being.

  12. Identifying imbalances and malfunctions and rebalance and restore the body and its systems.

 1.  Listen to your body

Your body communicates to you all the time.  It tells you what foods support health and healing and what foods don’t.  It tells you when you need to rest and when you need to move your body.  It tells you when you have too much stress in your life.  Your body tells you when something in your body or life is out of balance.  Your body is your friend and if you learn to listen to and interpret its signals, it will become a trusted guide in your healing process.

We have cut ourselves off from the communication from our body.  We ignore the body’s signals, we take pills and potions to silence the signals, and we do not know how to interpret the messages that our body is trying to send to us.   Step one of the healing process is to reestablish communication with the body.

2.  Eat Whole Food

The fuel for your body is whole foods, including vegetables, fruits, grains, dairy, meat, and fats.  Just as nature created your body, nature created the perfect food for your body.  Each food that we eat provides our body with unique and irreplaceable nutrients in the proper balance for our bodies.  Our bodies know how to use the foods created by Mother Nature to keep our bodies healthy and in balance and the systems in our body functioning at maximum efficiency.

In the world today, our food supply is being tainted with highly process, modified and even manufactured “food.”    Eating processed, modified and manufactured foods does not give our bodies the proper nutrition in the proper balance so in essence we become malnourished.  As our bodies are not getting the proper fuel, our systems begin suffer and malfunction.  Our body does not have the right fuel to heal and support itself.  Plus the body cannot keep up with eliminating the on slot of chemicals that it needs to dispose of.  The result includes faster aging, aches and pains, poor sleep, fatigue.  Our body also sends us signals to let us know what nutrients we are missing from our diet in the form of food cravings.

Step two of the healing process is to return to eating whole foods as close to its natural source as possible.

3.  Drink Pure Water

Your body is somewhere around 50-75% water.  Water performs many vital functions in the body.  Your brain needs water to function, your body needs water to flush out toxins and cellular wastes from the body, and your blood is primarily water and works to bring oxygen throughout the body.  These are just a few examples of the importance of water.  The quality of water is also important.  Filtered or spring water are the best options.

We often replace water in our diet with coffee, teas, sports drinks and sodas.  These types of beverages often contribute to dehydration rather than to hydration and are filled with unhealthy chemicals or stimulants.  Sometimes we simply don’t drink enough liquids of any kind.  By the time you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated.

Step three of the healing process is to drink adequate high quality water.

4.  Move Your Body

The human body was designed to move.  Movement of the body keeps the body healthy and strong.  Moving the body keeps the muscles toned and strong, the heart healthy, the joints lubricated and healthy, and assists the organs in fulfilling their functions.  Movement assists the body in detoxifying cellular wastes and helps to transport nutrients and oxygen throughout the body.  Movement also gets you where you want to go in life.  A variety of movement is needed to include strengthening, cardiovascular, flexibility, and ease.

For many of us our lives are more sedentary than they have been in the past.  We have compensated with gyms and numerous forms of exercise.  Some of us exercise too little, some too much.  Yes, you can over exercise as well as under exercise.  Some focus too much on one category such as strengthening or cardiovascular rather than a balanced routing including all categories.  Exercise can be fun activities such as dancing or playing a sport.

Step four of the healing process is to include a balanced exercise routine in your regular schedule.

5.  Breathe

The most important nutrient that we take in every minute of every day is air.  Breath is life.  Your life begins with the first breath in and ends with your last breath out.  Without breath/air/oxygen, you would cease to be alive in 3-4 minutes.  You can live for up to 3-4 months without food and up to a week without water, but you cannot even live 5 minutes without air.  The breath brings the important nutrient of oxygen into your body and rids the body of metabolic and cellular wastes.  The breath also fosters self-awareness, assists you in listening to your body, and can help to manage stress.

For many of us, our breaths are shallow, we do not use the full capacity of our lungs and we do not exhale fully to empty our lungs before taking in the next breath.  The busier we get, the less breath we take in.  It is a simple yet very valuable process to take a few minutes each day to simply watch the breath and then slow down and deepen the breath.  In addition to this simple process, there are breathing techniques that we can learn and use to support health and balance in the body, emotions, mind and spirit.

Step 5 is learning to breathe more fully and completely.

6.  Get adequate sleep

Sleep time is the part of our day where we allow the body, mind, emotions and spirit to rest and rejuvenate.  The body needs this time to repair and replenish itself so that it can continue day after day.  Likewise, the mind needs down time.  We need time where we can sink into the deepest recesses of our being and reconnect with our source.  This rhythm aligns us with the rhythm of the earth and keeps the cycle of life strong.  The number of hours that we sleep, the quality of our sleep and the rhythm of our sleep cycles are all important factors in getting adequate sleep.

In our busy lifestyles, we lose this natural rhythm.  We compromise our sleep by cutting down the hours available for sleep, by staying awake late into the night (or early morning hours) and by compromising the quality of our sleep.  Good dietary and exercise routines are important in insuring a good night sleep.  A balanced schedule with adequate time for sleep that is in harmony with nature is important as well as managing the level of stress in our lives.

Step 6 is getting adequate good quality sleep.

7.  Honor your bio-individuality

Each person on this planet is as unique as each individual snowflake.  This individuality extends beyond the color of our hair and eyes.  It impacts our personality, our water needs, our exercise choices and our food choices.  Just as some plants like more sun or more water or different types of soil, the needs of our bodies differ from person to person.  Have you ever wondered why some people never gain weight no matter what they eat or some people can lose weight on a high protein diet when another person would gain weight on that same diet?  Why do different people like different foods?

This is all about bio-individuality.  If you are eating foods that suits your unique bio-chemical needs, you can eat all you want with no issues around weight gain or loss.  You will have a stable and abundant supply of energy from morning until night fall.  You will have less aches and pains.  Your mind will be clear and focused.  Your hormones and emotions will be more stable.  Your food cravings will diminish.

In our world today, we get an abundance of conflicting information on diet and exercise.  How do we know what is right for us?  We are taught to not listen to our bodies, but to follow someone else’s idea of what our bodies need.

By learning about your unique bio-individuality and adjusting your diet and exercise to align with that, you will be supporting your body in moving towards health and balance.

8.  Manage Stress

Stress is a part of our lives and always will be.  Stress is that which moves us forward into creating new solutions to the challenges that we face in our lives.  Stress helps us to evolve beyond limiting beliefs and who we think we are into the next grander vision of ourselves.

Stress in the body also helps us to become aware when something is out of balance and gives us notice that we need to pay attention and take action to bring ourselves back into balance.  Stress can be found on the physical, emotional, mental and expression levels of our existence.  And stress in one area impacts stress in the other areas, so it is important to become aware of and address the stress in a timely manner.  If stress is unaddressed, it leaves a negative imprint in the body and can cascade into numerous challenges on all levels.

The steps included in this article are ways to reduce stress on the physical level.  Each phase of the Beyond Fibromyalgia program is intended to bring balance to a different dimension of ourselves and thereby reduce stress on the physical body.   Watch for upcoming blogs . . .

9.  Uncover and eliminate food sensitivities

A healthy food for your body is a food that your body can digest and utilize to provide your body with proper nourishment.  Along with our bio-individuality, there are some foods that agree with your body and some foods that may not agree with your body.

Maybe you love a food, but after eating it, you don’t feel so good.  You may even say, “I like that food, but my body doesn’t.”   You might feel sluggish or get a stomach ache or heart burn or diarrhea or fuzzy minded or overly emotional.  If so, these are foods that are contributing to ill health rather than good health.

Some of these foods are easy to identify because the results are immediate and noticeable.  Sometimes the effects of these foods are more subtle and take time to impact the body.  These are the foods that need some detective work to uncover.  Identifying and eliminating foods that your body reacts negatively to is an important step in creating a strong and healthy body.  Watch future blogs for ways to identify and eliminate food sensitivities.

10.  Detox your home.

Keeping your home clean and uncluttered is another way to support your health.  Cleanliness provides a safe, healthy and comfortable place to live and thrive.  A place to rest, work and play.  A physically clean environment contributes to improved health.

Just as our food supply has been inundated with unhealthy foods, the cleaning products and personal care products you use can provide a constant source of toxicity that the body has to deal with.   This creates additional stress on the body and forces the body to use its resources to deal with the onslaught of toxins.  Using cleaning products and personal care products that are made using natural and bio-degradable ingredients will go a long way to improve your health.

11.  Detoxify your body

The body is designed to naturally eliminate toxins from our external environment and those created by our internal metabolic processes in order to keep the body clean and healthy.  Sort of like an internal bath.  Eating unhealthy foods and living an unhealthy lifestyle over time results in toxicity in the body above and beyond what our body can naturally eliminate.  These toxins create stress on the body, interfere with the normal functioning of the body, stress the immune system and contribute to pain and other illnesses. As you upgrade your food and lifestyle, doing a targeted cleanses can assist your body in more quickly eliminating the toxicity.  It is also a good idea to integrate some detoxification protocols in your lifestyle on an ongoing basis.   In this way, your body will achieve and maintain maximum health.  Watch for future blogs on how to detoxify your body.

12.  Re-balance and repair the body and its systems

The body is designed to maintain balance and health with all systems working at maximum efficiency.  This would include the immune, digestive, detoxification, elimination and hormonal systems among others.  In order to maintain excellent health all of these systems need to be functioning and in balance with each other.  Eating a poor diet and living an unhealthy lifestyle can push the body beyond its ability to stay in balance.

As you change your diet and upgrade your lifestyle, it is important to identify imbalances and compromised functioning within the body.  Once these are identified, targeted protocols can be implemented that will assist the body in returning to full balance and optimal functioning resulting in improved health.   See future blogs on how to re-balance and repair the body.

In Closing

As you can see, rebuilding your health is a process, not an event.  It does take intention and commitment.  Taking baby steps, choosing one thing at a time, implementing it and sticking with that until it feels natural.  Then take another baby step.  With this focus, over the course of time, you will be adopting a healthy lifestyle and improving your health.  

Help is available.  I work one on with with clients who want support in making and sticking with lifestyle and dietary changes.  If you are interested in this, you can schedule a Complimentary Discovery session with me.   By next year, I will be offering group programs so that more people can receive coaching at an affordable price.  

If this isn’t in your budget, keep reading my blogs.  I will be offering ongoing information on how to take the baby steps.  Also, join the online Kaleidoscope Healing Circle.  This is a place for us to come together as a community to support healing, compassion and empowerment.  

Above all, be kind and compassionate with yourself.   An action done with love, love for yourself,  is more powerful than anything else.  You are a beautiful, amazing woman.  You deserve to be healthy and have a fulfilling life filled with love.  Allow that to be your motivation.

Much love to you,

Bindu

Online Kaleidoscope Healing Circle

Online Kaleidoscope Healing Circle

Introducing the Online Kaleidoscope Healing Circle.  

I am so excited.  I have pulled together the most transformative and healing tools that I have used over the years and integrated them in this Healing Circle.  

The Kaleidoscope is designed especially for Women with Fibromyalgia.  I struggled with my health from an early age.  I have crawled out of the misery of fibromyalgia.  I am here to give you a helping hand to do the same.  Together we are more powerful than individually.

The Kaleidoscope Healing Circle

is a weekly online group experience where we explore, discover and dissolve the Fibromyalgia Matrix™ using movement, self-inquiry, prayer, presence, sound healing, energy healing, love, d compassion and more.    By gently discovering and unreveling the Fibromyalgia Matrix™ with love and compassion, we can move beyond the experience of fibromyalgia.

The Fibromyalgia Matrix™ is the interconnecting physical, emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual imbalances that underlies the experience of fibromyalgia.  Each person’s matrix is unique to them, just like each fingerprint is unique.

Imagine yourself as a beautiful kaleidoscope, moving and morphing, harmonious and free, moment by moment through life.  The purpose of the healing circle is to remove the blockages so that you can, once again, move freely and joyfully moment by moment.

An important component in healing.

An important component for healing is the care of our inner life.  Our emotional body, our mind, our energy body and our spirit.  We might be taking wonderful care of our body, but if our minds are filled with negative thoughts, our emotions filled with negative feelings, and we are disconnected from our spirit, we simply won’t thrive.  Add to this, being disconnected from our purpose can leave us feeling lost and unfocused. 

Identifying and changing our negative thinking and negative emotions is easier said than done.  Often our beliefs are held in place by unresolved negative experiences and trapped emotions.  These same unresolved negative experiences and trapped emotions also block our connection to our spirit, our true nature and our purpose.

Bindu is a teacher who teaches from her heart with great sensitivity towards her students. Her gentle, holistic approach nourishes the body and soul on every level.  Bindu’s approach to yoga fit me perfectly and resulted in me incorporating a simple yoga routine into my everyday life. As a result of her teaching and inspiration, I have kept my body strong and supple, my mind more clear and focused for the past 10 years! I highly recommend Bindu! “

The Fibromyalgia Matrix

The Fibromyalgia Matrix

When I first learned about fibromyalgia, I was excited . . . and then disappointed.

After 20 years of suffering, there was a name for what was going on with me.  I thought that meant that it could be cured.  I was sorely disappointed.  I found that just because there was a name for what was wrong with me, didn’t mean that anyone knew how to heal it. 

I wanted to be healthy.

So, I pulled up my bootstraps and began applying what I had learned in my explorations of holistic health and consulted with holistic practitioners.  By that time, I had given up on medical doctors as they had nothing to offer me that made any significant difference.  In pulling it all together, I came to a place where I could manage my symptoms, but not make any real progress on completely eliminating them.   I wanted more.  I wanted to be healthy and not live within the limitations of having fibromyalgia.  I felt like I was living in a box and had to carefully manage my life to maintain a manageable level of pain and fatigue.  

Managing my symptoms wasn’t enough.

My search continued.  I slowly began unraveling the underlying causes of my dis-ease.  Piece by piece, I began to resolve physical, mental, emotional, expression and spiritual imbalances that were keeping my stuck, unhappy and sick.    Realizing that there was not one thing that would fix or heal what was wrong with me, I coined the term the Fibromyalgia Matrix.

 

Fibromyalgia Matrixtm

The Fibromyalgia Matrix is the interweaving and interconnected physical, emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual imbalances that underlies the experience of fibromyalgia.  Each person’s matrix is unique to them, just like a fingerprint is unique.  The Fibromyalgia Matrix creates chaos physically, emotionally, mentally, energetically.  No foundation, no stability, impaired function, chaos, nothing to stand or build on.  Sound familiar? 

Recovery from fibromyalgia! 

Recovery from fibromyalgia is a process of identifying and resolving these imbalances.  It is quite like putting a puzzle together.  You find the right pieces and put them together in the right sequence.  Out of chaos comes order and improved function.  As the pieces of the puzzle are found and put together, symptoms go away, health emerges, and peace is restored.  

Rather than chase symptoms, we find and resolve the underlying imbalances.  That is the path to creating true health on all levels. 

The 8 fold process 

By moving through the 8-fold process I spoke about last week, we can unravel the Fibromyalgia Matrix, and progressively rebuild our health, reclaim our life, rediscover our joy and align with our purpose.    True health is much more than the elimination of physical symptoms.  It is embracing the totality of who we are, body, mind, emotions, energy and spirit with love and compassion and reclaiming our uniqueness and our gifts and living successfully, powerfully and joyfully in the world. 

Online Kaleidoscope Healing Circle to the Rescue!

That my friends, is what I am about.  Are you ready to join me in this grand adventure?  I hope so.  That is why I am starting the Online Kaleidoscope Healing Circle on July 9.  In this group, we can come together to heal individually and collectively.  I’m excited about this.  I hope you are too.  

Next week, look for more information about the Online Kaleidoscope Healing Circle. 

Until then, sending you healing energy to begin the process,

5 Kinds of Stress that Cause Disease

5 Kinds of Stress that Cause Disease

What kinds of stresses cause disease?

Underlying all dis-ease is stress.  Identifying a resolving the stress in our life is necessary to rebuilding our health.   Most stress is that which lies in our subconscious and impacts us on a level below our conscious awareness.  Yet, we can bring these things into awareness and heal and transform them and our lives.

Here is a brief summary of the top 5 areas of stress.

1.  Basic care of the body is essential for improved health.  Sometimes the body needs simply needs basic care such as proper food, water, exercise and rest.  Without this, the body cannot properly restore itself.  

2.  Our lifestyle choices is another area of consideration.  Sometimes the person needs improved communication in home, work and social relationships.  The individual might need greater balance between work, home and play.   Perhaps they need companionship, self-love, or community.  Perhaps they have a loss of purpose and focus for their lives.

3.  Perhaps there are biochemical imbalance happening in the body such as gut dysbiosis, Ph imbalances, hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, etc.  And yet in these situations, a skilled practitioner would ask the question, “Why are the biochemical imbalances happening?  What is the underlying cause?”  Biochemical imbalances are usually secondary to a deeper underlying cause.

4.  Trauma, abuse and other negative life experiences can be a major factor in someone’s health.  Traumas leave a negative signature or vibration in the body.  If that isn’t resolved, it can undermine out health and happiness.  Identifying and neutralizing these energy signatures frees us from their influence, enhances our energy and opens the mind and heart to new possibilities.

5.  The mindset and emotional balance are a factor in health.  If an individual is angry and resentful, they are compromising their body’s ability to heal itself.  If a person is chronically sad and depressed, that will impact their health.  Then the question that must be asked is why the individual is angry, resentful, sad or depressed.

These areas are interconnected.

Understanding the underlying matrix between the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic bodies can be complex.  In order rebuild our health, it is important to look at all dimensions, the imbalances in each dimension and the interrelationship between them.  We can progressively identify and resolve the imbalances and unweave the Fibromyalgia Matrix™.

Online Healing Circle Coming

In the coming month or two, I’ll be launching an online healing circle for women with fibromyalgia. This will be an opportunity for us to come together and support each other in identifying and resolving stress in our lives.  Discovering, healing, honoring and sharing and growing together in health and fulfillment as a community.

I hope you will join us.  Wishing you health and inner peace.

Healing From the Inside Out . . . What does that mean?

Healing From the Inside Out . . . What does that mean?

I often use the phrase ‘healing from the inside out’.  The first time I heard it, I wondered what it really meant.  I suspect that you also wonder that same thing.

Let’s start by looking at different kinds of health care models:

Allopathic Medicine.

Per the National Cancer Institute, allopathic medicine is a system in which medical doctors and other healthcare professionals (such as nurses, pharmacists, and therapists) treat symptoms and diseases using drugs, radiation, or surgery. Also called biomedicine, conventional medicine, mainstream medicine, orthodox medicine, and Western medicine.

Green Health Care

A system of health care in which natural, alternative, and holistic practitioners address symptoms using natural herbs, supplements and other holistic modalities, which could include acupuncture, massage, aromatherapy, and many others.  Not that these modalities are always only managing and alleviating symptoms.  It depends on the practitioner, their approach, perspective, training and expertise.

Healing from the inside out. 

A system of wellness care that uses detective work to identify underlying cause of symptoms and then support the body in healing itself.  This is based on the understanding that the body heals itself and only the body can heal itself.  Your entire body was built from 2 cells joining together.  Every function in your body was created from those two cells.  If the human body is capable of that, then it is also capable of healing almost anything that goes wrong in the body.

 

Since I use the Healing from the Inside Out model, let’s explore that.  

From my perspective, the body is designed to heal itself.  When the body is exposed to stresses, it is designed to meet and resolve the stress and return to homeostasis.  When the body is not healthy, it means that the body is not able to meet and resolve the stresses.  This can be caused by many factors and in the case of chronic illness, it is that there are more stresses that the body can handle, and the dis-ease process has been initiated.

A common mis-understanding is the symptoms themselves.

Our society commonly see symptoms as something bad that needs to be gotten rid of.  From the inside out perspective, symptoms are either a sign that the body is healing or a message from the body that something has gone wrong and we need to grab our detective hats and get to the investigation.

Let’s step back to the idea that a symptom is a sign that the body is healing itself.

Yes, when the body is healing itself, there will almost always be a symptom.  You cut your finger and it become red, inflamed and sore.  That is the body sending energy and natural healing chemicals to the cut.  If you wash the cut, and keep it from getting infected, the finger will heal.  Nothing else needs to be done.   This is a very simple example, and yet often our symptoms are just that, the body in the process of healing itself.

Other times our symptoms are the body telling us that something is wrong.

Imagine that the oil light came on in your car.  Rather than putting more oil in the car, you snipped the connection to the light so that the oil light didn’t come on.  Without the simple act of adding oil, you might very well burn out the engine.    Maybe your fatigue is because you aren’t getting enough sleep.  Your heartburn is caused by eating too much of the wrong foods.  Sure, you can take a medication or supplement to make the symptom go away, but without addressing and resolving the underlying cause, the health of the body will decline, the symptoms may reappear or show up in a different and perhaps a more serious problem.

From my understanding, this is what happens in our body when we over use drugs, supplements and other tools to ‘stop’ the symptoms.  Sometimes intelligent symptom alleviation is appropriate, but it is best used along with a deeper look and resolution of the underlying cause.

 

Finding a practitioner who is seasoned in supporting the body in healing itself

A practitioner who is skilled in assisting an individual to heal from the inside out will have many ways to inquire, identify and resolve the underlying causes of symptoms.  As the underlying causes are identified and resolved, then the problematic symptoms simply go away.

I focus on supporting the body to heal from the inside out.

I spent a lot of years chasing symptoms with both allopathic medicine and green health care. In order to fulfill my desire to completely heal myself, I needed to go deeper. I could manage my fibromyalgia symptoms with supplements, but I could’t make them completely go away. My intention was to be symptom free. So I continued searching.

I studied wholistic health from many angles, including physical, emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual aspects. I am also very intuitive. By blending my studies with my intuition, I was able to identify and resolve the underlying causes and symptoms began falling away.

Now, talking with an individual, listening, and asking for questionnaires to be completed I can have a pretty good idea of the areas of stress.  Then comes the work of identifying specifics and using the right tools to neutralize the stresses.

Healing from the inside out can seem to take longer and be more expensive than the allopathic approach, but in my experience the opposite is true. It embraces the whole being and becomes an experience of tapping into and neutralizing stresses and imbalances that you never knew were lurking under the surface. These stresses impact you on all levels, robbing you of your vitality, inner peace and satisfaction in life.

 

Stayed tuned. 

Next week, we will look at the kinds of stresses that underly fibromyalgia symptoms.

  

The result of healing from the inside out is that you discover a new you that may be well beyond what you ever imagined possible. 

That is true healing.

4 Essential Components to Rebuild Your Health

4 Essential Components to Rebuild Your Health

The body is designed to heal itself if given what it needs.  Rebuilding your health is an inside-out process.   It takes the detective work to identify underlying causes of your symptoms and creating solutions that are in harmony with your body’s needs.  This approach has provided me with lasting solutions rather than chasing symptoms.

Here are the 4 areas that are essential to effectively rebuild your health:

1.  Essential Care of the Body

The body needs the proper food, rest, hydration, movement, relaxation, play, sleep, and breath to function optimally.  The body is designed to repair itself from daily functioning and even occasional stresses, traumas and accidents.  If any of these elements are missing, the body cannot properly repair itself.  If it cannot do that, then the wear and tear will degenerate the body at an accelerated rate which can show up as premature aging and chronic illnesses.

Another important element in the essential care of the body is to respect your unique bio-individuality.  Every body is different and needs a unique diet, amount of water, the right kind and amount of exercise, the right balance between work, play and rest, and even the right amount and timing of sleep.  Often these days we focus on treating a symptom or illness and disregard the bio-individual needs of the individual.   One size fits all approaches often don’t work.

A part of caring for the body is feeding it the right diet, exercise and rest.  But just as important is eliminating things that are stressful to the body, such as toxins from the environment, food, cleaning products, body products and more.  This reduces the toxic load that your body has to deal with and allows that freed up energy to be put towards healing.

2.  Care of the Mind, Emotions and Spirit

The mind, body and emotions are intricately linked.   You can be providing your body with excellent care, but if your mindset is negative, if you are dealing with a lot of negative emotions, if you have a history of abuse or traumas in your past your ability to rebuild your health will be compromised.

Working with a practitioner who is skilled in dismantling the mental and emotional components of an illness is a great resource.  I have found this is where the greatest and most effective healing is to be found.  In ancient, traditional and cutting-edge approaches, the connection between the mind, emotions and body is well mapped and can be identified and unraveled.

Modern research is showing that 80-90% of all illnesses are caused by stress.  Stress can come from many places.   The primary source of stress isn’t what is happening outside of us, but what is happening inside of us.  In his book, The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, PhD, reveals how negative memories residing in our sub and unconscious data banks are a primary source of stress.  Identifying and resolving those hidden memories are an important component to rebuilding your health.

The spiritual dimension is also important.  It provides us with an inner sense of well-being beyond the body, emotions and mind.  It is a connection to God, our Higher Self and an increased connection to ourselves, others and the world around us.   Without that connection, our lives can feel empty . . . like something is just missing.  Feeling that divine connection is fuel for the energy that heals the body.

3.  Identifying and Resolving Causative Factors

When you have a chronic Illness such as fibromyalgia, it is because the body isn’t functioning optimally.  When the functions of the body are failing, it is because there is a toxic build up in the body and underlying imbalances in the energy flow and lack of communication within the body between the organs, cells and neuro-endocrine systems.  It would be like putting ill football players on a field littered with trash and with no direction or teamwork.  They would just run around in chaos and get very little accomplished.  That is what happens in the body.

The body’s innate repair system is not able to keep up with the degeneration that has happened.  It is important to restore the energy flow, detoxify the body, restore the microbiome, repair cellular damage, resolve inherited genetic susceptibilities and support the body’s systems to return to balance and optimal function.

If you have a chronic illness such as fibromyalgia, the imbalance hasn’t happened over night.  It has been building over time.  Perhaps your health declined slowly, or one event threw you over the edge where the body couldn’t recover.    Rebuilding your health is a process of reversing the degeneration that has happened with steady focus and commitment.

4.  Reclaim Your Life – Enhancing your Expression

To reclaim your life it is helpful, maybe even necessary to have a picture or vision of who you are as a healthy person.  What would your life look like if you were healthy?  What are your dreams and desires? What are your core values and mission?

For some, you can remember a time in your life that you were healthy.  For other, perhaps you have a vision of what you would like to be able to do or create with your life.  What is important about the vision is that it reminds you that what you are experiencing is temporary, that you can have a healthier happier life; that the work you are doing is your investment in a happier healthier future.    If you finding it is creating stress or tension between what is and what you want, remind yourself that acceptance of your current situation is but one step toward creating the future you want.

That vision is what will pull you through the healing process into health.  Rebuilding your health is a process, not an event.  It is a journey that will be filled with victories and challenges.  You will have good days and bad days.  It is during these times, that the vision of a healthy future can keep you going.

In Summary

The journey to full health can be an amazing journey of learning to love yourself and your body.  Of creating a healthy loving relationship with your body and rediscovering your intuitive knowing and inherent gifts and unique energy signature.  It can be a process of unraveling all that holds you back and keeps you stuck in life; whether that be your health, finances, career, or relationships.

My mission is to assist women with fibromyalgia who which to undertake this journey.  I hope you will join me.  Together we can create a supportive community of women committed to rebuilding our health, reclaiming our lives, rediscovering our joy and aligning with our purpose.
