I’m always struggling with some invisible force this time of year. Something between the end of summer blues and that rough landing into the start of winter.
But I loooove Fall. I love crisp pumpkin farm air.
Recently – like for the last 20 years – unbeknownst to me, my body was quietly unbalancing itself. Subtle mysterious little nudges of “hello, we need help” came and went. And I usually ignored them. Until two years ago, precisely on my birthday, I lost all strength and feeling in one arm and I could barely make it up a flight of stairs.
It wasn’t my best birthday.
Two years later. It wasn’t a stroke, or a pinched nerve, or scoliosis. It wasn’t what any western doctor claimed it to be.
It was the end result of an imbalance of key organ systems that normally function in harmony. A balance quite delicate that the smallest transgressions can send some of us into detour.
Ignoring my diet and sleep and health since high school started my imbalance. Everyone has some trigger. My imbalance existed long before I started being healthy, and being healthy wasn’t enough to turn it around.
I had a lot to learn about how to heal my body. And I’m sharing this to help you heal yours.
