Doctors did not have any answers. All lab tests, microbiology analysis, X-rays and MRI came back normal… So, as expected, she was sent home with an analgesic and an antidepressant. This is when Nada came to see me.
What is your body trying to tell you?
I believe that our body has a tremendous ability to heal and regenerate, we just have to give it what it needs. When physical symptoms are so severe, we have to start with the body... What does it need? Is there any missing nutrients? Are there any toxins/ allergens...?
Chronic fatigue, myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), and fibromyalgia have no known cause in conventional medicine and the offered treatment is usually pain relief medication and anti-depressants. Yet, science shows us that these conditions develop when the cells cannot generate enough energy to meet their need. Our body knows how to restore its health and energy… We just have to listen and give it what it needs in order to heal.
Nada's tiny organelles, the mitochondria, weren’t functioning properly. The mitochondria are responsible for generating energy in every cell in our body. In some sensitive people, anesthetics can cause toxicity that their bodies cannot get rid of. Toxins shut down mitochondrial function, the energy power plant of the cell.
What caused the mitochondria to malfunction? What caused the body to shout and scream? This differ from one person to another... It could be low level of B vitamin, low level of ribose -a special sugar that is essential to produce cell energy-; it could be malfunction in some biochemical pathway, it could be a hidden infection, inflammation or poor liver detoxification, it could be over exhaustion and adrenal fatigue… It could be combination of all of the above… It is the role of your natural health practitioner to help you dig for the cause then fix it. Finding the cause and fixing it are essential to heal your body & restore your health…
To function properly, Nada’s liver needed a boost to get rid of the toxins and her mitochondria needed extra nutrients from nutrient dense diet and supplements. I put Nada on a highly nutritious diet and supplement protocol that gave her body what it needed, and within 2 days her brain fog lifted. 2 weeks later she was out of bed, and within 6 months, she restored her normal everyday functions.
What is your heart trying to tell you?
The healthy diet and supplements weren’t all what Nada’s needed… My years of experience with natural healing showed me that all chronic disease and malfunctions have their roots in some emotional or spiritual need.
When all body systems start to fall down and crumble, this is a sign that you are pushing yourself beyond your physical limits; you are drained and exhausted in the literal and figurative sense of the words… It is like you have been running on empty for a long time and your body is refusing to cope with further demands and extra responsibilities.
Chronic fatigue, myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), and fibromyalgia stem from malfunctions in the first (root) chakra, the third (solar plexus), the fourth (heart) and/or the sixth (eyebrow) chakras.
The root or basic chakra is thrown out of balance when you feel ungrounded, un-protected, and unsupported. When life seems overwhelming and unfair. When you feel oppressed and forced into direction that you dread. Or, when you are constantly running on over-drive, in a fight and flight mode.
The Third Chakra is related to your sense of self worth, of accomplishments, of feeling that you are ‘good enough’, you are talented and gifted enough. The Third Chakra starts to whisper when you feel victimized, helpless or hopeless.
The Heart Chakra starts to whisper when you lack self-love, self-care and self-nurture; when you feel some form of self-rejection or you beat yourself up in guilt and shame over not being ‘good enough’.
The Sixth Chakra whispers when you fail to see a higher meaning and purpose in your life trials, challenges and sufferings; when you are paralyzed by fear or dreading your current reality; when you lose your direction and meaning in life.
Nada led a highly stressful life... relationship problems, work overload, and two needy toddlers. Listening and digging for what her heart and soul needed were essential and crucial steps in healing. I helped her listen and together we crafted a plan to feed her heart and nurture her soul.
In many cases, we cannot change or physical reality, our circumstances and our environment, but we surely can change our mindset, our perception and our approach... Remember, you always have the choice!
