I just wanted to send out a big thank you to everyone!
In the last 24 hrs, my blog went down and I lost the last two blog entries, along with any comments you may have sent in. It so happened that one of the last blog entries was about me feeling sad about my blog, so I had a few ladies concerned that I may have closed the blog down for good. Don’t worry, that is not going to happen any time soon, and I will be sure to let you know if that is what I intend to do. Thanks for all the concern though!
On some weird level, having the blog go down was kinda a good thing. I was able to really rethink its direction and its purpose and really focus on getting my message across a little better. See, I think we still view our healing from a purely western mentality. We think, “If I take this tablet or supplement, then that will heal my Endometriosis.” It is like we are still thinking singularly about our health and fail to recognize how much everything else we do to our bodies and mind influences our health. I often get comments and emails of women who say, “I am taking maca and aloe vera, which are all the supplements you suggest but I am still not feeling better!” I ask them about their lives, what they do for a living or whether they are exercising, how stressed out they are or whether they have emotions held inside from past experience and inevitably I find that there is heaps of other areas within their healing they can still approach. See, holistic healing is not singular in its nature. We can’t focus on one area of health. Our health comes from everything we do, each and every day.
I try to provide this range of holistic healing through my blog and one day I will get around to putting it all in a logical book or program format, but for now I would like you to explore the various topics in the different categories to get a more holistic approach to your health. Look at everything and incorporate as many natural and holistic methods as you can. Often times, we try things in a singular format, just yoga or just nutrition, whereas combining everything will give us a holistic and overall healing environment for the body. It is like a puzzle. Each little piece may seem insignificant but when you add them all together, they all fit perfectly and create a beautiful picture of health.
Also, I want to express that this blog is not here to make you feel guilty about things you haven’t done or are not doing. You can choose to take everything on board or you may choose to only take bits of information on board. You may not be in the right headspace to want to try new things or you may be feeling low or sad right now, and that is okay. Please don’t ever feel like things are impossible or that you need to prove something to me or anyone else. As long as you are searching for answers, the answers will come to you. Just take steps and you will move forward.
I have been on this road for a very long time. I have been dealing with Endometriosis for over 15 years and have traveled down many roads before coming to this one. The information I share is merely my experiences and things I am doing. They may not help you or you may not be willing to try them. That is okay. When you are ready, the information will be here for you. To some of you, my methods may seem extreme or impossible, like cutting out sugar, but I am prepared to do anything to get 100% healed from Endo. Maybe you are okay with just not having as much pain from endo, in which case these extremes may not be necessary. I guess, you have to ask yourself… how important is my health and probably more likely… how severe is my Endometriosis pain?
This blog is here to empower you, to give you as much information about ways to feel better. I want to give you as much as I can to help you make better decisions about your Endometriosis. Sometimes, this might mean that I give you a kick up the butt to encourage you to take action. Other times I might simply share a poem. I am also just a person and I also have emotions and share this world with you at the same time. I also go through stuff and express those things through this blog. Sometimes I read things in forums that make me angry or sad and that makes me want to fight harder to help other women. This may come across as preachy or pushy but my intention is always the same… I want to help you to help yourself by providing as much information as I can.
So, enough about all of this, tomorrow I will be back on track with the blog and I have heaps more research to share with you.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments from all the ladies who shared about how much my blog has helped them. I have them all in my inbox and will find a way to share them on my blog… but for now a big Thank you and a massive big hug to you all!
