I had forgotten how good acupuncture makes you feel.......I have seen the acupuncturist/chiropractor twice this week. After all those meds, all those steroids( and the moon face and the ten pounds they gave me) the respiratory stuff was still with me......and I just refused to take any more meds right now, I don't think my spirit could take it, or my body the side affects. So, I did what I should have done weeks ago, followed my instinct and added an alternative approach as well.
I am breathing better, feel better and hopefully will look better when I knock off the moon/weight. The gunk is leaving my chest and sinus and I am sleeping. The energy I have now is real, and not artificial.......a big difference I can promise you. I know the meds have saved my life more than once, but I also know that alternative methods of healing work. I mean after all, people got sick before there was Doc in the Box and a drug store on every corner......and a lot of the old folk remedies inspired modern medicine.
I am sharing my thoughts with you tonight, I know these methods may not be for every one.......my sister and brother think I drank the kool-aide.......I probably did......but I have also seen the ravages of prescription meds at their worst. I know it is not a pretty sight, me sitting there with needles in strange places, but I swear
I close my eyes and do slow breathing........and every ounce of stress in my body just leaves and I almost fall asleep......the adjustments do pretty much the same thing......I leave her office and I just want to come home and NAP!!!!!!!! But then, by mid afternoon when it is time to teach, my energy soars. It has been a great combination.
I will keep you posted on my alternative healing journey, I am still earthing too. As I have talked before,
sometimes the path takes you a different way, and I like to think that I live my life like water......I flow.
Good night, Sweet dreams
