Originally today's post was going to be all about mindset and why it matters. But the truth is, things have been super crazy lately and that means things get a little off balance. That's all okay, because in all reality, the wheel is never fully balanced. It rotates and there will be times one area needs a bit more help than others. For me right now, that area is health.
A week or so ago I was told by a friend about a holistic practitioner in the area. I didn't really think I had anything major to go in for but wanted to get my foot in the door and knew it had been a while since I'd had a good checkup. So I scheduled an appointment. That appointment was today. The news wasn't quite as I expected. I fully thought she'd agree that I'm premenopausal (which she did) and that I have a few gut issues going on. My thought was that it was just "normal" things that a good cleanse could take care of. No biggie.
Though these are all areas that came up, it wasn't necessarily for the reasons I expected. So, what exactly is going on? Lyme Disease. The funny thing is that, though it hadn't really crossed my mind that I had it, I also wasn't super surprised. I live in central Oklahoma and the ticks can be thick at times. So, yes, I've had tick bites before. However, it's been a while so I was surprised that it's something that is just now coming up (which I also found out isn't so uncommon).
What now? Thankfully, since I'm already health-conscious and try to give my body what it needs, this process should go a little faster than the projected 11+ months that it can take.
Step #1 is to open up the drainage system.
Step #2 is to kill off all parasites. Thankfully she said I really don't have a lot to deal with here. That's a big plus!
Step #3 is a series of steps to actually kill off the Lyme Disease.
I'm feeling pretty confident about the action steps we are taking and I can't wait to heal my body from the inside out. It's so important to listen to you bodies and find ways to treat the core issues, not just the symptoms. Like I said above, I felt I needed to go in but not for anything major. But I was also relieved to have the appointment set just to know what all is going on. And you better believe I'm happy that I didn't put it off any longer. Now we can head things off quickly and get my body back to where it needs to be.
As for mindset, well, it plays a part here too...having a positive attitude when healing the body is a must! The results will be so much better when you face things with a positive outlook. Stay tuned for my original blog on why mindset matters...and having a healthy body is just one reason why!
