My Own Transformational Journey
From the time I was a child, I suffered from depression and anxiety which, throughout my early adult life, lead me to many self-destructive decisions and behaviors. For one, I became bulimic and to “make-up” for my binges, I compulsively exercised, fasted, or downed handfuls of laxatives.
Although, my dancing and performing always kept me “in shape”, I was extremely unhealthy and soon after the birth of my third child, my eating patterns, lifestyle, and unresolved trauma finally caught up with me.
I became severely ill and weak. I was diagnosed with IBS and gallbladder disease, and ended up having my gallbladder removed as it literally stopped functioning. After several months of testing, I was also diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and was told to expect to be in a wheelchair in 10 years time.
I couldn’t believe it. Within 1 year, I went from being able to dance all day to being barely able to walk or even hold a hairbrush to brush my daughter’s hair. I was scared. I had always been a fighter but I didn’t know how to fight this fight.
Not only was I physically sick but I also had debilitating anxiety and was diagnosed with OCD. I was in and out of the hospital so many times that I could have had my own parking space that said “MVP – Most Valuable Patient”. I certainly helped keep the lights on.
I Had Been Slowly Destroying Myself...
It truly was one of the most frightening times of my life and honestly, if it hadn’t been for my kiddos I probably wouldn’t be here today. They were the reason that kept me fighting.
As my symptoms grew worse, I tried various medications without help and after having too many doctors shrug their shoulders at me – basically telling me to deal with it, that there wasn’t anything more they could do for me – I had to get honest with myself and admit the truth that I had been slowly destroying myself.
So, I decided to make major changes and completely overhaul my diet, and in 2 years time, I was able to restore my physical health.
But because I did not deal with the trauma that I had been holding onto since childhood, those old demons would come back to haunt me.
My health started spiraling downwards again. I was overworked, overwhelmed, and overweight and along with my body breaking down, my anxiety and depression came back with a vengeance. You see, because I hadn’t dealt with my emotional and mental pain all those years ago, I had to face it. It would no longer be ignored.
And it was only when I faced the truth, could I finally make the changes I needed to restore all of me – my body, mind, and spirit, and experience true wellness and transformation.
Real Health is Whole Health
I finally realized, after 20 years, real health is whole health. It’s all interconnected. Like a camera tripod or a three-legged stool. Mind, Body, Spirit – and if even one leg is out of balance, it affects the whole.
