Getting healthy

As the year ends I’ve been thinking about everything that’s happened this year. And whoa, has stuff happened. The amount of travelling, research, and growth that we all did this year is unbelievable. It’s not surprising my health has suffered so considerably.

One thing Dr. Dituro said when I saw him 2 weeks ago keeps resonating in my mind. He said, “You and Nathan are more connected than you could ever imagine. If you are well, he is well. If you are not well, he will not be well. It is important for you to be strong and healthy.” It sounded a little bit new agey to me so I didn’t pay too much attention, but for some reason, those words keep coming back. And I have noticed that on days when I’m not well Nathan isn’t as strong or happy. So I am starting to understand what he means. I’ve always felt this out of control connection with Nathan, where I can feel what he needs. He can’t speak with words but he seems to put words in my heart, so I know what he wants/needs. And if I’m upset or sick or unhappy, I can’t hear him very well.

Something else the doctor said, was that stress had depleted me so badly that my adrenals were hardly functioning.

So over the last couple of days, since things have been quieter than usual, I’ve been going through an unusual amount of reflection.

And what’s emerged is a firm determination that I will get healthy this year. For the past 2.5 years, 150% of my energy time and attention has gone to Nathan. I missed the obvious which was that for all of that to work, I have to give some of that time and energy to myself. I think I’ve written about htis before and I already knew it – intellectually. But my understanding is deepening to more emotional levels and I am more cognizant that it’s not only a good idea, but essential.

So I am going to spend this week which will also be quiet with an emphasis on rest and relaxation.

I am so happy that I found Dr. Dituro, and I feel I am in good hands with him. I’ve been researching some of the herbs he gave me and I am stunned about how beneficial they seem to be. The names sounded so weird that I partly thougth it was all a bit cooky. But now having researched the stuff I am convinced that by some phenomenal miracle we’ve fallen into the right hands – finallly!

So as I learn more about how to be healthy I will share about it here. All of us need help with this – the very definition of being a mother seems to come with selflessness, so it’s a very difficult journey to learn how to take care of oneself as well – to be selfish as a means of selflessness. And how it turns my world upside down, when for years I’ve strived for a life of complete selflessness. Now I understand there has to be balance and I am hoping to restore it.

In the meantime, here are some links for the stuff the doctor has me on now:

HM Detox – this is to chelate heavy metals. Apparently having silver fillings means that you instantly have some heavy metal toxicity. So this is supposed to help me get rid of the heavy metals in my sytem.

Pau d’arco – This helps to kill candida as well as having many other benefits.

OPC Synergy – OPC encourages healthy brain function by improving vascular efficiency and by supporting the cells from challenge by cellular oxidation.

Cat’s claw – This one really had me wondering. But when I read about it I was surprised. The name made it sounded like some witchrafty weird thing. But it seems to have a ton of benefits!

Uncaria tomentosa has the ability to break through severe intestinal derangements that no other available products can touch.” He refers to the herb as “the opener of the way” because of its remarkable ability to cleanse the entire intestinal tract and help patients suffering from many different stomach and bowel disorders including leaky bowel syndrome. irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, hemorrhoids. fistulas. gastritis, ulcers, parasites and intestinal flora imbalance.

Dr. DiTuro found that both Nathan and I have leaky gut syndrome so this should really help us.

I’m on a few more things but I thought I’d share a few for now. Obviously these are all specific to me based on the muscle testing he did, so I can’t reccommend this to others, but I thought I’d at least share so we mothers learn that there are other, natural ways to heal that don’t require chemicals or nasty side effects!

I’m just starting to believe on all these things myself as I’ve noticed such dramatic improvements in myself. I just wish I’d known much, much sooner about all these things – Nathan’s life would’ve been different. So would mine. But it’s never too late!
