This week my post on Everyday Health is titled Temporarily Defeated by Rheumatoid Arthritis.
After a major flare up has calmed down, I always look back at what was happening before and during the flare-up. Sometimes it seems like nothing out of the ordinary was going on and the flare-up makes absolutely no sense at all. This flare up definitely had many things going for it – I was on a detox tea and added a few extra acupuncture treatments that may have stirred things up a little too quickly, we had lots of rain last week, and we had a stressful week with cars breaking down and me returning to work. Plus, I didn’t see my husband much at all last week which I never like. When I look back at all that was happening last week, it makes sense that my body was reacting. I was putting a lot of stress on it and it was letting me know it doesn’t appreciate it.
The good news is when I went in for acupuncture this week, Jim felt like my organs looked better than they have in a while which means we are making improvements. He is looking for an herb that will be a good match for my cold body and warm knee.
“My body is healing. My body is healing.” (Breath deep and say 100 times throughout the day!)
One thought on “Everyday Health – A Natural Path to Healing”
Thanks to some of your earlier suggestions, I have started telling myself “My body is healing” many times through out the day.
