How do I start?
If you're here, you're certainly wondering, "How do I start healing myself".
You have made the first move, trying to do something about it. Taking the initiative to work on the problem, instead of expecting someone else to do the work for you. You understand that you have the sole responsibility of making yourself well.
If you want to start healing yourself today, you can start here:
1) Start eating healthier foods.
This may seem like a small and insignificant step. But whatever you put into your body is all it has to work with to heal you. If you feed your body overly processed food - it has no nutrients to work with to try to restore you to a state of positive health. Without the nutrients to restore your health, nothing else you try in a holistic manner will be able to help as much as it could have otherwise.
Even if all you can do are small movements for 5 minutes a day - every day you will be making your body stronger and better able to do more tomorrow.
3) Slow Down
Watch yourself and what thoughts and feelings you're putting into your body. How you feel can drastically affect how you heal. Slow down and try to take life a little easier.
4) Give up Stress
If your body is in a constant state of stress, it can not heal itself. When your body is in a stress response to daily activities, your immune system slows down. Your body can not heal in this state.
5) Commit to changing your life.
Your body is trying to tell you something with disease. Perhaps you're not eating right, maybe you have not taken care of it in other ways, or perhaps you have something going on in your life that is affecting how you feel. Don't take this idea lightly. If you want to heal completely, you must change your life. The following blogs will give more solid information on healing, but you must commit to change before any of that information will help you.
These things all seem fairly simple, maybe even ludicrously so. But I could not have healed myself without them.
My Rheumatoid Arthritis is as good as gone. I have had help from doctors, all who have told me that rheumatoid arthritis is incurable, I have been taking their advice along with my own program, but healing is more than they could give me alone.
I have been where you are. Perhaps worse if you only have a mild case. I was bed-ridden. Every joint swollen to the point where I could not even roll myself to either direction in bed.
I now have no symptoms. No problems. If you think it can't be done, think again. If your doctors have told you that you can never feel better, don't believe them. I'm walking proof.
