What is considered traditional medicine these days includes a visit to the doctor that is included in your insurance plan and some pharmaceuticals to take away the pain. I believe in growing healthy food without chemicals and I try to heal my body the same way.
Sunflowers can extract toxic ingredients from the soil and were used by the Russian government to help clean up after the Chernobyl disaster.
As a specialty crop grower (small fruits and vegetables) I do a lot of manual labor and spend A LOT of time on my feet. The last 2 years I have ended up with Plantar Fasciitis by November. My feet are tired from spending 6 days a week, 6 to 10 hours on my feet. Mid December through the end of January is our slowest time and I get a chance to slow down and sit more and my feet get to heal. Well this winter, my left foot never got better. The last few weeks the heel pain has gotten intense and by the end of the day I am limping. I finally decided to get help.
Some folks have suggested I see my doctor for a cortisone shot. I don’t want to go that route. I know there are alternative healing methods that are successful. One of my A3 entrepreneurs, Lisa Ponichter, from Awakening Movements suggested a foot splint at night while I sleep and it has definitely made it easier to get out of bed in the morning.
Yesterday I saw Ann Harmon to get one of her energy/ frequency/sound treatment things she does and I could feel the influx of good things happening. She suggested I do muscle testing before I bought any supplements to see if my body needed them and showed me how to do it.
Today I visited Lori Kleeba at Heel-N-Soles for a massage and she worked on the knots all over my legs with a hot rock tapping technique to help relax the tight muscles. I will be seeing her again next week to continue releasing all these knots.
I then went to Natural View Market for some supplements to help with the healing process and I wasn’t sure what to take. I decided to try to do the muscle testing that Ann had suggested on my normal vitamins and the new supplements. Stephanie, who works there, saw what I was trying to do. She suggested I first make sure my polarity was aligned then helped me figure out my body’s positive and negative response. She then started putting vitamins and other supplements in my hands so I could test each one. I found out some of the vitamins I have been taking my body doesn’t want and Stephanie helped me find ones that my body needs.
I came home to start writing my blog and knew I wanted to do something about healing. I decided to start reading my Abundance Cubed book for July, “The EFT Manual” by Dawson Church. How funny life is! The tapping method she explains is something Ann Harmon has been using on me during our visits, so although I had no idea what EFT meant (Emotional Freedom Techniques), I was already experiencing it!!! I am looking forward to learning much more about the practice and then trying it on myself.
It is so wonderful to be surrounded by holistic practitioners and people that believe in healing the body through its innate ability to heal itself!
