It's about time I post during this chaotic time that we're in... As I type this from my Seattle home, I'm filled with a deep gratitude for the days and weeks I've spent with my family at home and in nature, yet I'm simultaneously heartbroken about the status of the world and ache for the many people hurting. But there's a light in that ache, and it's the love and kindness that is being shown by people right now in this time of Coronavirus. The earth - our home - is getting a chance to heal. The sky has never looked more beautiful. And there's a calm in between the chaos. I have so much to say about how I feel about everything that's happening, but my overall message is simple: I am and always will be for empowered wellness. This relates hugely to this space I've created for Vestibular Warriors.
I believe in healing.
I know that we can make lifestyle shifts that are monumental when it comes to our wellness (and the wellness of this planet).
I believe that we are meant to thrive in this human-experience.
Anthony William says it perfectly in his latest book:
This is the perfect time for Vestibular Warriors to go deeper with their healing. There is no better time than now to go inward and focus on your wellness. It's a beautiful thing to uncover the root cause and take the steps to heal from the inside out. Health starts on an individual level. When I'm kind to myself and focus on fueling my health- mind, body & spirit, I can then shine light to those around me. Wellness is a light that we can keep sharing and shining for one another.
It's a gift that we should share with one another.
A few days ago I started diving in with Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal by Anthony William. I'm not new to Medical Medium, but the last few months I have been incorporating more of the protocols in my wellness routine: drinking celery juice every morning and taking recommended supplements. I can completely tell that it has taken my healing to another level. It's not something that happens overnight, but in the moments, days and weeks of committing to fueling my body in an incredibly intentional and thoughtful way.
My goal is to touch complete freedom from the vestibular stuff. While I do feel like I've recovered my wellness after the vestibular storm (read Uncovering Bliss: A Journey With a Vestibular Condition and Beyond for my whole story and the mind & body experience) and I rarely experience vestibular symptoms, I'm still weaning off my migraine medication and I do get the occasional twinge of symptoms. I'm getting so close to being off my migraine medication (all posts on that here) and I know that freedom from it is in sight.
I'm ready to take this next step and for me it's part of uncovering bliss every single day.
The below is an excerpt from Cleanse to Heal in the section especially important for Vestibular Warriors:
The biggest change that I'm making with following this book is that I'm incorporating the supplement list for vertigo/migraines. I have already been taking a majority of these supplements for the last few months, but I'm now learning that I need to change the dosage on most of them. Basically I need to up the amount I'm taking a bit, which makes sense to me. I'm taking it slow and embracing the cleansing process.
One of the supplements I started taking more of is L-lysine and I have noticed that I've had moments where I've felt like I want to jump out of my skin. Sort of odd to describe but I connected with another Vestibular Warrior who felt the same way. I've also been tired in a happy way. Like my body is getting the goodness it needs and figuring out what to do with it. I love drinking celery juice each morning and I feel lucky that I can make it happen every day. I was drinking about 16oz each morning the last 10ish weeks, but Cleanse To Heal recommends working up to 32oz, and I'm up for the challenge!
Along with embracing this protocol, I know that right now it's especially important for me to focus on the good and what I want to bring into this world. So, here I am at the (sort of) beginning of this next step and I'm excited to share it with you. I want to help others feel empowered on their healing journey. That's why I share all I do on Vestibular Warrior YouTube and why I'll continue to.
If we haven't connected on Instagram, I would love to! I make a point to share a lot of my journey there and we can root for one another along the way.
