It’s frustrating when dealing with a chronic illness, because it takes ALOT of time and effort to heal. Sometimes it feels like a fulltime job.
At first I was doing 2 forms of Qigong for an hour each daily, doing the Salt/C Plus protocol which is timed each hour, taking several tinctures and tons of supplements. On top of that I would also spend time on Inner Child work or similar methods.
Why? I just wanted to get better. I felt so horrible that I wanted to keep adding more and more hoping it would help. I was able to connect with a deeper part of myself that knew I was going to heal!
But still, it took alot of time. The improvements were gradual, and sometimes it was frustrating, I was impatient.. and i’m much, much improved now and still wish it would go faster.
I’m sure you’re feeling the same.
I want you to look back over the longer term, instead of a week or a month look back 6 months or a year.. and if you’ve been doing the right things to heal then you’ll realize that you really have improved in that time, but that it’s been very subtle and gradual.
You might have more energy, your strength might have improved, you might be doing more working out than you have in quite a while, you might be going out to do more social things because you feel stronger in yourself both physically and emotionally.
The challenge is that symptoms can come and go, especially when you’re more impacted. And when this happens it might feel you’re getting worse, but that’s not always true. It could be a few things.
First it could be that you need to adjust something or add something, or increase a dosage. I do this with Autonomic Response Testing because…
It might also be a healing response/herx response. This happens when you start or increase a treatment, or when detox is happening. When an infection is being killed off it releases toxins, and when toxins are coming through your body it can flare up old symptoms or bring up new symptoms temporarily like tiredness, rashes, just feeling like crap, being more emotional, itchiness etc. It’s part of it, and this sometimes can lead you to emotionally feel like all the effort isn’t helping. But usually that clears and you do realize, you ARE getting better.
It’s just gradual. It takes time. I urge you to keep going!
