Blood tests revealed I was pre-diabetic with liver and gallbladder disease. I knew that if I didn’t get this under control, I was likely to lose my gallbladder or develop heart disease or diabetes, just like many others in my family had. I’ve seen what it can do to the body, and I didn’t want it to happen to me. This was a major turning point in my health, my future, and the way I run my practice. I had made the decision to get my health back and once I did, I was ready to do whatever it took, no matter what. The first thing I had to do was get me out of the way. I had to stop telling myself, that I was a bad doctor, I was a failure, or that I will never lose the weight. Once I started analyzing my limiting beliefs and came face to face with my current situation, it became had to commit to the required action.
I had realized that if my mind-set didn’t consist of determination or commitment or if I didn’t believe or trust in the process, I reduced my chances of getting well. When you are clear on the health or the life you want to achieve, circumstances will fall in your favor to help you achieve it. The steps no longer feel like an uphill battle. You will begin to embrace the challenges instead of letting them defeat you.
The healing strategies I utilize revolve around removing the physical and emotional barriers to healing and restoring the building blocks of our bodies—the cells. I had to handle my health issues in stages by addressing the priority first. To reduce cellular inflammation, I began to eliminate my intake of inflammatory grains and sugars and increasing my intake of good fats that help rejuvenate the cell membranes. These changes alone helped encourage more weight loss, improve energy, and improve digestion.
I continue to immerse myself in learning about health, listen to audio, read books, and hang around like-minded people. I feed my mind with what I want and cancel what I don’t want. When there are times I feel discouraged, I have to focus on why I started in the first place, and that is maintain a healthy weight, have an abundance of energy and to be in my sons’ lives for as long as possible. I continue to incorporate true cellular detox and reduce the negative impact of my thoughts and actions. Now, I not only enjoy more health, I feel a different clarity, an inner strength. I feel like I can do anything! I have a deeper purpose in my life. I feel alive! I have found more balance and fun in my life. There is inner peace that resides in me. I am better equipped to face challenges head on!I enjoy sharing what I went through and encouraging others to do the same.
We have so much stacked against us in today’s world, but if I can create more love and health, then I am with it. Every day, my mission is to be better than I was yesterday. I am able to forgive myself for the past mistakes I’ve made. My experiences help me appreciate where I am today.
