14 years ago an event changed the direction of my life forever
How the Western health system attempted to manage my CFS. Looking only at independent symptoms.
The array of drugs I was placed on for CFS by different doctors. All of which gave no relief or worsened my health.
How the body feels for people with chronic fatigue.
The turning point…
A summary of my approach to healing involving a multitude of holistic approaches.
Here are a list of some key changes that I bought about to improve my health, to see more information on creating a recovery plan to chronic fatigue click here:
I slowly withdrew all the drugs I had been prescribed, until my body was medication free and all my symptoms were unmasked.
I healed my gut and rebalanced my gut biome through nutrition and supplements. I eliminated all inflammatory and refined foods (including gluten, lactose, refined sugar etc) and focused on a low GI organic wholefoods diet, rich in antioxidants. I introduced daily pre- and probiotics including fermented foods, broths and other gut healing approaches.
I began a twice weekly acupuncture treatment plan and I started to learn Qigong and meditation to help balance my body and mind. It alleviated some of the symptoms I was experiencing, built stamina and strength, and made me feel more connected to my body.
I attended neural linguistic programming (NLP) sessions to reprogram my subconscious mind and convince myself consciously and subconsciously that I was healthy and able to achieve anything I put my mind to.
I assessed all stress in my life and looked at ways of making health centripetal to my journey with better work-life balance, including a career change.
I discovered Peruvian Maca. An ancient medicine used by the Inca for hormone balance, adrenal fatigue, mental health, energy and vitality. It helped further boost my energy, boosted my mental health, focus and concentration and gave my body stamina, Maca is all about bringing balance back to the endocrine system and restoring the body to good health. It builds incredible strength and resilience and protects the body from crashing again during stress.
The proud practitioner of Wu style Qigong. Beginning to feel more alive with energy and vitality as I changed my life.
Practicing the form called baduanjin (8 pieces of treasure). One method I used to slowly re-strengthen my body and rebuild fitness.
Working in the laboratory during my PhD at Melbourne University to further understand the mechanisms of oxidative stress and disease.
Promoting holistic management for diabetic patients and sharing my passion for health and happiness.
