Health and vitality are extremely important to me, in fact it’s my passion!! I thrive on learning new information weekly, if not daily to literally improve our standards of health and living. I have always been healthy though I have had my share of wild and crazy accidents over the course of my life that have set up imbalances in my structure. It is this course that has amplified my health conscious mission.
In junior high I had a pressure cooker blow up on me creating third degree burns on my thighs, arms and stomach. It took months to heal the skin and muscles. I have no scars though it wasn’t until I was out of high school before the skin on those areas was back to normal. In the next year, I had a T-bar at a ski resort hit me directly on my mouth, breaking my teeth, cracking the mandible and altering my neck and back. This set up back issues for decades. Adding injury upon injury, right after college I fell skiing where I dislocated my sterno-clavicular joint (on the clavical area the bone protrusion is still visible) and dislocated and bruised my ribs. I wore a neck brace for six weeks. And then again in 1993, once again I fell skiing (of course there had been innumerable falls skiing and biking in between affecting my knees) dislocating ribs, my back and injuring my neck fairly severely. It set up years of recovery, doctors, rehab, and learning how to become well and normal. I asked hundreds of questions, was rewarded with thousands of answers, read, experimented with every alternative resource.
To complicate matters, my second son reacted to his immunizations in 1991. It took diligent alternative care to get him to a place where he could sleep on his own, could breathe without the continual gurgle and wheezing. He had reacted to the pertussis in the DPT shot. I cradled him in my arms nightly for two years in a rocking chair catching as much sleep as possible, otherwise he couldn’t sleep; his lungs were too congested. It wasn’t until he passed his second birthday was he able to breathe normally. This began my journey of natural and alternative methods of healing.
In 1999, our local paper mill emitted toxin chemicals into the air, putting 42 school children into the hospital. Unfortunately I was home that day and was nuked by the chemicals. It sent my immune system into a three year recovery period of rebuilding my strength, my lungs, my resistance. It was at this time I took my health even more directly under my own care. I learned to intuitively ‘see’ the systems, organs and structure of my own body. I learned how to energetically move and realign balance in my bones and chakras and meridians. What took me thirty minutes to an hour to achieve, I can do now in less than a minute . People began asking if I could do for them what I’d done for myself. It was the beginning of the next chapter I have been passionately committed to, since my world changed so many years ago.
Everything I have learned I share with others, from working individually with clients, to teaching seminars and workshops to writing a blog and my books. I want to energize others into taking their own health into their hands and being proactive rather than leaning so heavily on the health care system that is in need of repair and wellness itself.
From my personal challenges I have gained great awareness and insights I am compelled to share.
May you health be in alignment with your highest ideals.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
