I believe a self-healing revolution is already underway, and part of my mission with Mobility Mastery has been to fuel this revolution and help as many people as possible get access to critical information for self-healing pain and trauma.
I am now passionately fired up about all the other aspects of self-healing, like testing/labs, imaging, detox and access to information that can help us find the root cause (and solutions) for everything from thyroid issues to autoimmune conditions and cancer.
During the last 6 weeks I’ve spent thousands of dollars on lab tests, multiple doctors visits and one Urgent Care visit only to remain answer-less. No one has a definitive assessment/theory as to what’s going on inside my body (or mind-body space), and while we’ve ruled a few things out (low thyroid, giant tumor in my abdomen) I simply feel more confused than I did when I first decided to get professional help.
I also feel re-empowered to be my own expert. I didn’t think I was qualified, given my symptoms. But no one I’ve seen yet seems qualified to find answers or solutions either. Everyone is giving best guesses, sending me down the line to the next professional or I’m opting for that myself.
This experience has lit a fire in me to aggregate some resources for myself and all of you, for self-testing. If I had known how much money I’d spend not getting answers from the doctors I’ve seen, I would have used my money to order a more wide array of tests.
I’m REALLY optimistic about my upcoming session with Dr. Mindy Pelz, a chiropractor and detox expert in California. I encourage you to check out her website and YouTube channel if you want information on detoxing, autophagy, fasting or the keto diet.
My visit to Urgent Care cost me $320, and at least we ruled out a giant tumor in my chest cavity with an X-Ray (that I had to insist on, just to get something concrete ruled in or out).
All of this is mirroring a lot of my trauma story, or patterns/threads that seem to be woven through my life. I’ve had many conversations with Stefan about this, and it’s been on my mind since the mercury poisoning.
I will be sharing my trauma story, and some of the patterns I’m currently being confronted by, very soon.
Please keep in mind that by sharing this healing journey I am not asking for your opinion or advice. I welcome encouraging words, support and your stories of self-healing. My intention by sharing this is to shed light on what it’s like to navigate the medical model – as it currently is, allopathic and alternative – trying to find good help and solid answers. Maybe, through this process, we can shed light on how to usher in a new paradigm where the patient has equal rights and access to testing that a medical professional has, where we’re empowered to follow our instincts and intuitions, really listen to our bodies and combine the best of western medical technology and diagnostics with natural and holistic healing modalities.
Are you with me?! Please share your self-healing enthusiasm below. And extra bonus points if you want to join me in figuring out what the best resources are for self-testing, self-diagnostics and personal access to technology that can save our lives faster than trying to do it through medical professionals who may not have our best interests at heart.
