To live fully and aware, we need to take care of our body, mind and spirit. There are many tools we can use to become a better version of ourselves and deepen our awareness.
As a teacher and lifetime student in Intuitive Yoga and Body movement, it is my passion to share my experiences, to create awareness, love and joy.
MY HEALING JOURNEY
For the past 3 years, I was struggling with inflammations that lead to strange injuries, breathing problems, allergies, asthma attacks, food intolerance, non-stop muscle aching and joint pain. It just didn’t make sense, while given the “healthy” lifestyle that I lead and the priority that I put it, the symptoms of inflammation became worse. That’s when I had no other choice than to quit my job and take a jump into “nothingness”.
I became more aware of my environment, mental- and physical health by using a journey of intuitive healing, which led me to the deeper roots of a dis-ease. It was essential to uncover underlying dysfunctions and overlooked factors while I was on heavy meds, so I could figure out what smarter decisions I needed to make to take back control of my health.
I did a lot of research and finally found what worked best for me; the plant-based Keto diet and Intermittent fasting regime. A low carb, high fat and moderate protein way of eating, within a timeframe of 4-8 hours each day. After two days, it triggered a complex biochemical process inside my body that directly fought inflammation with symptoms like allergies and asthma. I started to educate myself more about how inflammation works in our bodies and that it is the root cause of almost any dis-ease or dis-function we deal with these days. It gave me a whole new way of understanding the chronic health condition that I was living with.
Another critical challenge that came into my life had everything to do with my breast implants. I’ve got them 12 years ago due to a lack of self-confidence at that time. Because of persistent symptoms and the healthy life I was living, I started to read about “Breast Implant Illness”. In June 2019, I was diagnosed with Churg Strauss Syndrome, a chronic inflammation of the smaller blood vessels, that could lead to failure of most important organs inside the body. CSS is related to ASIA syndrome(Breast Implant Illness), which brought me into surgery a few days later.
From the day I came out of surgery, I directly felt I got my life back. It took me a whole lot of focus, faith, patience, intuition and most of all, self-love to be where I wanted to be. Today I can be proud that I did what I had to do. That I can be me, as pure as it can be, on the road to recovery 💛
