It began with feeling tired when sleeping for 8-10 hours.
Insomnia some nights and eating at odd hours.
I could not figure out what was wrong with me.
It began to get worse, losing hair and energy.
After some time, I went to get a yearly physical and it showed up on my blood test.
My thyroid levels were out of wack.
I was in a way relived to know what had been going on was not just in my mind, but also scared of the unknown.
They did some additional tests and found it was Hashimotos auto immune disorder.
I was not ready for that news.
My mother had Hashimotos.
And she passed about 6 years ago from breast cancer.
I was scared and the feeling of doom fell over me as I began to think the worst.
I am a usually positive person, but hearing this sent me into a mind-jolt.
I scheduled the cancer screening to catch things early if this was the case, the results came back negative. Thank You God.
The doctors recommend medication for the rest of my life, which I tried but it did not help me.
But this spurred me on a quest to find a holistic cure for myself.
Over the last 4 years, I have learned about energy work, balancing the body’s systems, yoga, meditation, akashic channeling, nutrition, and exercise.
Here is the results of my findings:
Yoga has saved me.
Creating a safe space for me to love myself and others.
Without judgement and fear.
It has helped me release blockages in my body and soul.
Opening my throat chakra
Meditation has been a constant
To calm my anxieties and create a space of oneness with the divine in me.
Learning to trust my intuition and what my body is telling me.
The body is made to heal if only we provide the tools and space to do so.
