My organs were shutting down, the specialist said. I didn’t hear much of anything after that. The words ‘shutting down’ meant imminent death, in my mind, fraught with horrible pain. I envisioned myself unable to control my faculties and being left in a hospice to moan my last few days.
It did not help that the doctors did not know what was wrong with me. On top of all the drugs they prescribed which made me more ill, they did an EMG (such long needles!) MRI's, an endoscopy, and CT scans. Major surgery came next but was later determined to have been unnecessary, after all. That day, hearing those words from the specialist brought me to the river's edge; I would take no more drugs! Instead, I would take my health in hand.
Now, I am well, and a trained naturopathic physician, holistic health coach, and colon hydro-therapist. All around us, there is a renewed surge in alternative health and I am excited to help clients reach their goals.
Are you at the edge of the river?
