Go HERE for part 1 of my emotional journey...
I have a friend who was probably the sickest person I know. She could hardly eat anything and she was always sick too. She had been going and doing some alternative medicine things and I felt like this might be my answer since Western Medicine wasn't helping me anymore. They were telling me I was normal and that I would just have to function the way I was...or take anti-depressant pills. No thanks!
So, I started to do some alternative medicine things. My adrenal glands were not functioning, so I took pills to try to help them. My iron was obviously still low so I took pills for them. I took pills for my kidneys because they were not flushing all the toxins out of my body. Yada, Yada, I took whatever my body tested that I needed. I wasn't completely satisfied with this either, although I was starting to feel better. But, I wanted more. I didn't want to be tied to pills for the rest of my life so my same friend had started trying something new as well for allergy treatments. Basically the idea is, that our body has reactions to all things that we put it in contact with, some good, some bad. If you have 'allergies' to these things, your body will react negatively to them each time you come in contact with them. This treatment is called NAET and it literally changed my life. It is crazy and amazing all at the same time. They 'treat' you for your allergy so that the next time you come in contact with that thing, your bodies energy says oh this stuff is okay, I'm not going to act crazy this time. And it works. I went through countless treatments and the brain fog I had disappeared, the tiredness diminished, my energy levels started to come up and most of all my iron levels finally stayed normal and I wasn't even supplementing it! I was so happy! But, I still had a ways to go for my to be completely satisfied. I still had some headaches, jaw pain and I still could not drop weight which was frustrating.
My husband had started going to a new chiropractor who also used a muscle technique that he loved. It helps get your muscles to fire correctly as sometimes they fatigue and will go into a secondary muscle to help the primary muscle. Anyway, I decided I should go check him out and see if he could help me. He helped me so much! He helped my jaw, neck and head pain diminish! What a miracle to not be in constant pain in my head. Loved that! Another answer to prayers, but I was still so frustrated with my weight.
I was working out, eating what I thought was right and I still could not drop weight, which is ultimately what I wanted. I wanted my energy levels up. I wanted to feel great, but really, I wanted that scale to go down. At one point, I figured if I worked out more I would lose more weight so I worked out twice a day for a whole month and still nothing. I cried. I cried a lot!
