Tuesday the 7th of August was a life changing day for me as I was at last told what is wrong with me and given an explanation to all my physical pain and suffering over the last few years.
I have high toxicity in my organs, which means that my lungs, liver and pancreas are damaged. They have been struggling to function properly but luckily have been detected just in time.
First of all I would like to say to everyone that if you feel/know something is wrong with you don’t give up and don’t believe everything the doctors tell you.
Doctors and specialists have been passing me around for the past year and half saying that they have no clue what is wrong. Firstly, they’d put me on Neurontin, which is an epileptic medication with high warnings of suicide as a side effect. I actually had to inform my husband that if he noticed any drastic changes in my behaviour to tell me so we could address it straight away. This was given to me to stop my nerve spasms.
Then most recently I was put on Endep as my pains were still evident and Neurontin was no longer working. Endep is an antidepressant with a nerve relaxant which also has similar warnings similar and I have recently been told of someone who had literally lost their mind on this medication. My dad even warned me to be very careful as he was also concerned. What was I to do? If I went off this medication I would feel my pain completely and I would be suffering even more so on a day to day basis. This not only plays havoc on my body but mentally I become distressed because my family and work become affected because I am hurting too much to be present in life.
Over the past few months my symptoms had been progressively getting worse. More muscular body aches, more headaches, stomach upsets, mood swings, restless sleeping, waking tired and random body pains that feel like a knife being stabbed in my legs, arms, hips or shoulders. Last week I had to pull over twice in the morning on my way to work after dropping the kids off at school because I could not keep my eyes open and was unsafe to drive. This was not the first time this has happened to me.
I was scared and extremely concerned, yet no one around me seemed to be concerned as me. I guess when you hear a person daily complain about their physical well-being you begin to tune out. I am often left feeling that everyone is just sick of my complaints and that they were starting to believe I was just over-sensitive (which is also true) and perhaps over-dramatizing things.
I am a Leo and a bit of a drama queen at times but never where my body is concerned have I over dramatized my pain or made it up.
I have been suffering every single day morning to night for a very, very long time now. It had gotten to a point that the most enjoyable time was bedtime for me as I would be warm, eventually comfortable and once asleep, pain free.
So on Tuesday I was given a diagnosis by a 70 year old man who specializes in iridology. He has not been taking on new patients for the past 20 years and yet he agreed to see me (by some miracle – after having been referred to him by the owner of the gym we recently joined). This is a man who had clients come from overseas after being told they had cancer, were going to die and he cured them. Cancer free.
So Wojciech and I drove to Nangkita for an hour and a half to meet this man. A man who within 10 minutes of looking into my eyes wrote down all my symptoms and the causes without me telling him why I was even there. He showed Woj the spots in my eyes and they looked up together what they all meant. A few muscle tests revieled that my right side is in fact extremely weak and deteriorating.
Within the first 10 minutes of all this I was in tears. Everything all made sense after all this time. At last we had an answer from someone who actually knew what he was talking about, who cares and has immediately put me on a new life changing health plan.
I have been poisoning my body slowly over most of my life with processed foods, trans fats, refined sugars and high acid foods.
You know… I have been deep down wanting a wakeup call, something that made me turn my life around, get serious about my body and start treating it like temple. I have been wanting to go back to the old days eating off the land. Making exercise part of my daily life but nothing was stronger than my sugar addictions and laziness to exercise. Till now that is.
I have two choices now:
- Continue on this path, have my organs shut down and die; or
- Change my lifestyle – feed my body all the nutrients and foods it requires to live…
#1.. Is not an option!
I have two gorgeous children, a gorgeous niece and nephew, an amazing loving husband and an exceptionally wonderful family. I have the pleasure of working with my family and am helping create my dad’s (my hero) dream of a Roman Wonderland. A place for anyone and everyone to experience the joy and magic of what we do.
For all these reasons, I will make it my daily mission to do what is necessary to repair my body and continue creating this dream for my loved ones and anyone else who would love a part of it.
I have too much to offer, too much to give and too much to share to be leaving this earth any time soon!!
I told the kids when they came home from school and explained that our eating habits needed to change. They were more than happy to do so and we all went on a shopping trip to buy some essentials. We checked labels and bought our fruit and veg from the local fruit shop. It was a great start and we have all begun to enjoy this new process having now eaten two healthy dinners, snacks and lunches.
I spoke to Amy about it all today at work and she was so supportive. She said she to would like to start eating clean. So together we are embarking on a new adventure. So I have gathered some amazing recipes for us both try and we are very excited to get started. Some of the recipes look amazing. I can not wait to get cooking! I am so very happy to be sharing this journey with my sister. Not only because we work together four days a week but because eating the same will help us both. My sister is my world – I love and adore her so much and having her support means everything to me. Growing up I wasn’t a good role model for her and this is something that has deeply hurt me. Over the years I have worked very hard on being a better person and being someone she could finally look up to.
I have spent so much time and hard work on myself, my attitude, my personality and being the absolute best person I can be. Someone who my children and family could be proud of and I have achieved that. However I had been missing one vital part. Taking care of my health and well being.
Well that is all about to change.
I know this is going to be tough and at times quite painful journey but I am ready for it. One of the things I have learnt is that nothing good comes easy and you have to be willing to change and work damn hard at it daily to achieve results.
All that I have been putting out into the universe is coming back to me and as it does I will be putting it back and not only helping myself, my family but anyone who is willing to do the same.
If you have come this far in reading then you are an open spirit like me and are willing to give and receive the best this life has to offer.
So let’s begin this new journey….
