This is the first “official” post I am sharing about my journey so far with Meniere’s Disease, after receiving a number of e-mails and comments asking more about what works for me I chose to look upon my Meniere’s as another gift I have been given to help others create a better life. Don’t worry I’m not just going to talk about positive thinking here I also have some great practical things to share with you.
First of all let me tell you a little about my background with Meniere’s Disease. I remember my dad being diagnosed when I was a child, it was a pretty scary time for me as I was and always will be a daddy’s girl. Saturdays spent together at the football match (Soccer for you guys in the US 🙂 ) turned into a little more of a challenge as I remember people thinking my dad was boozy drunk and in charge of a child, whilst suffering some pretty bad vertigo attacks with the sickness and dizziness. I get a lot of my positive vibes from my dad (thanks dad!) many of which came to light when dealing with his Meniere’s. That said it was a big memory for me growing up, as a child I always suffered with my own ear infections and problems with balance. In a way I guess I expected Meniere’s to show up for me one day…
It did…… It was only during the early part of 2010 when I was diagnosed, to be honest it came as no shock. So, I’m a newbie to this on a personal level but an old hat when it comes to what works thanks to my dad already having lived through the topsy turvy times before I arrived there (thanks again dad). I choose not to take any prescribed medicine, this is my choice and it’s not for everyone but here’s what works for me….
Herbal Pill Popping….. (BTW….. This has worked for my dad for over 30 years)
Ginko Biloba – What I like to call my magic pills, which may I say not only help me stay “attack” free most of the time but also increase the blood flowing through my brain, helping my mental skills plus lots of other benefits ~ win/win! In case you don’t know too much about Ginko Biloba or haven’t heard of it before there are lots of sites out there which give you more info. I’m not a specialist I just know that it works REALLY well and wanted to share it with as many people as I can. You know you just cant help it when something works, I mean really works to make a difference in your life you feel that everyone should know… I’m really pleased you are here 🙂 🙂 🙂
Something Alternative I’m working with….
Healing Treatments & Self Healing – Stay with me on this one! I know this isn’t another magic pill you can pop but if you really do want to feel better then you should know the effects Healing can have. I now make sure I have energy healing at least once a month, I also see my current situation as my own self healing journey too, I believe we are all in control of what happens to our bodies and what disease shows up as well as what we can say goodbye to . I find that healing sessions and keeping a strong mindset about healing helps me. This is a heart and soul thing which may not work for everyone but it sure works for me which is cool! My last note about healing ~ I mentioned a book called You can heal your life by Louise Hay in one of my other posts – read this book 🙂
Lifestyle & Mindset for me this is KEY….
Taking a Relaxed Attitude to Life (or at least a more relaxed attitude than you have now) – Feel free to take a look around my blog, watch my videos, take in a few of my vibes. Positive thinking and the power of our thoughts (including The Law of Attraction) has been a big part of my life for the last five years or so. Prior to getting the “official” verdict on my health I knew in my heart that my stress levels in life were just too high. I was always on the move rushing around here and there, flying around, no time to stop and smell the roses. It gets to the best of us. I just couldn’t seem to get or feel grounded in life. Last year I made a lifestyle change and released my stressful job in senior management replacing it with my own lifestyle business –
“Whoaaaa there Liz!, owning your own business…. that cant be stress free???”
For me it is Stress Free ~ but that’s another story, the main point I want to get across here is that I work with personal development, positive thinking and the Law of Attraction. What I do isn’t a standard brick and mortar, working all hours god sends kind of business, it’s a lifestyle and for the most part is all about my mindset, I feel that a healthy mind = healthy body as well as visa versa… On a personal level the main thing for me is I live life on my own terms. This is a very important part of feeling well and in control in my life… It’s different for everyone but from my own experience I would always say relax and slow down. When you can start to do this you will feel the waves wash over you, you will start to feel better… Trust me! Look at your life and see what positive changes you can make to help you do this ~ You and your health is the number one priority here, without you and your health there is no priority any more… simple!
In case you haven’t yet heard of or read the Secret by Rhonda Byrne this is the book which started me on my personal development journey, it was a great introduction to the law of attraction which I feel also helps me on SO many levels 🙂 This is something else I always recommend…. enjoy!
