I announced in my previous newsletter – which was December of 2015 – that I was going to take some time off from my private practice.
If you are a long-time reader, you maybe remember that both Johny and I had been having some health issues of our own in 2015. Fatigue was an issue, along with some neurological symptoms.
As a functionally trained health care provider, I know that chronic health conditions can only have (4) root causes:
So in my time off, I examined all of those. And I think they all may have played a role and it was the “perfect storm”.
Toxins –> We re-finished our hardwood floors and it didn’t go as planned, and we ended up with chemicals on our floor that were not ‘green’. Additionally, Johny may have been exposed to some unknown chemicals while helping with a big remodel at our church.
Stress –> Both of us were working a lot, plus we ranch. It’s easy to be overwhelmed. We are insanely blessed but all I could see was the to-do list.
Diet –> We did have a good diet in our favor.
Pathogens –> While I tested positive for Lyme in all of this, I also came across some information about virus’s and testing confirmed they were also part of the picture.
The solution includes, but is not limited to: two home air filters, a far infrared sauna, an ongoing attitude adjustment, prayer, massive diet changes (bye bye Paleo), and an anti-microbial protocol.
The results were nothing less than a miracle really. I felt better almost immediately, and within weeks my health was transformed. Praise God. (If you are wondering why I didn’t end my sabbatical early, I was really enjoying my time off!)
So, here’s the announcement.
Moving forward, I’m committed to helping others with what I have learned. I’m certain God didn’t make me sick. But I do believe He brought me the information I needed to heal. I wasn’t serving others if I was too tired myself. My dream now is to offer a 6 or 8 month group class for those of you who also have similar health issues – mystery illness, fatigue, auto-immune issues, heavy metal toxicity, Lyme, Epstein Barr Virus, etc. I know that too many of you are still struggling, bouncing from doctor to doctor with no real solutions. I’m convinced I have even more information to share than I did before this episode. Illness *is* a teacher! Please stay tuned for more on this, and I’ll also be back with the usual health-related posts you are used to.
Here’s the favor part.
I have been doing some group business mentoring, while on sabbatical from my private practice.
If you are a health care professional interested in being your own boss,
I want to make sure I understand your needs.
There are not enough of us in private practice and I’m committed to helping more of you launch and grow your business as there is a huge demand for our services. I have a short survey that I’d love you to complete. As a big thank you, I am offering a $250 voucher for your time. It can be used toward one on one mentoring, or a group mentoring class.
In order to be considered for the $250 voucher, you must complete the survey by midnight 7/4/16.
If you are on a PC or Mac, you can take the survey here!
As a summary
If you are sick and need help, I am still here to help. But as stated, there is a bigger demand for functionally trained providers, and I am just one person. My waiting list had 71 names on it when I removed the list from my website. It is way too much for me to manage (thus I’m training others to do what I do!) and I hope that the idea of a group class is at least some what appealing. I know it’s not perfect, but I am mulling over how to offer the necessary information to heal in a group setting, with some one on one sessions to individualize care.
And if you just hang around for all the cool health related info, that’s all coming back too!
That’s it for now. Thanks for hanging in there while I re-grouped.
