Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Moving The Body

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Moving The Body

It’s often the case that my dance teachers say things like “the body loves to move” or “make your body happy – move in the way it wants to move.” And, for me now that resonates as truth. I know from my experience with energy healing and recovery from illness that emotions are held in the energy field, and can affect the physical body. Moving the body as it wants to move can literally facilitate release of stuck emotions and lead to healing.

Of course, when I was really ill with ME / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, I would not have been able to do that. I was scarcely able to get out of the door to do my shopping, let alone think about how my body “wanted” to move. That would have seemed almost absurd to me as I was just trying to get through the day in one piece!

So, how did I get to this position where I am doing free form dance (5 rhythms and biodanza) at least twice a week, and discovering all the time new ways in which my body wants to move and release stuck “stuff” from the past?

Well, I suppose really it happened very gradually. Before I became ill with ME / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, I was actually very active – but in a completely different way. I used to do a lot of high altitude walking, and a lot of swimming. When I got ill, and found that even tiny amounts of exercise could make me exhausted for disproportionate (1 or 2 weeks!) amounts of times, I was very confused. It felt to me as though exercise and moving the body was good for everyone except people like me diagnosed with this mysterious and completely confusing condition!

There were quite a few “landmarks” for me along the journey to loving moving my body again. One of them was engaging in a structured activity plan. Having the discipline to do this in a supported way (I had a loving mentor for those times when I was scared of overdoing it or when I was just scared – because movement is scary when you think you may relapse!) led to me being able to go for longer walks and go swimming. But at this stage, moving the body in a “free” way to release stuck energy was still a long way away.

It was going to the School of Energy Healing that changed all that for me. As I began to release stuck emotions and energy from events in my past (see other blog posts on inner child healing, past life healing, relationship healing and sound healing to get an idea what I am talking about), my body started to want to move in ways that would release. I didn’t make anything “happen” – it just happened of its own accord.

Nowadays, working with people who have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / ME, I use the same things that helped me to get better with my clients. So, I incorporate energy healing and the Emotional Freedom Technique to release traumas from the past that are stopping us healing in the present; and I work with people to help them strengthen their physical bodies through an activity plan and a nutrition plan.

After a certain amount of time, it feels as though people’s bodies do suddenly want to move – in a healthy way that expresses who they are and releases what needs to be released.

How to Fight Fatigue – You Don’t Have to Be Tired Anymore

How to Fight Fatigue – You Don’t Have to Be Tired Anymore

I can’t even begin to tell you how many of my friends are always complaining about being tired or fatigued. Heck, I often complain myself about being tired for no particular reason. It’s not like I’ve been up late recently or that I’m working any harder than normal or that there’s any stress in my life above average… no I just feel tired sometimes and I don’t like it!

So I thought I would sit down today and write a short little article to help you with some tips on how to battle fatigue. These simple tricks should wake you right up.

The first thing you should do is drink more water. This may seem simplistic but it’s true that we don’t drink enough water these days and it can often be the main factor that causes us to get tired out of turn. Drinking water helps us flush out toxins from the body which is fairly important. The body needs at least 64 ounces of water a day and when you get less than that your body starts to shut down and you feel fatigued.

Another tip is to eat small but eat often. We are trained to eat three big meals a day but when we do that it puts our blood sugar glucose levels on a roller coaster and the low glucose can cause you to become tired during the day. If you eat every three hours, that should help keep your energy levels up by steadying out your glucose levels. Keep these meals small and adding a good mix of protein and fiber in every meal is important. Also be sure to eat plenty of vegetables.

Next you should really think about salt intake. If you have high blood pressure then you should definitely stay away from salt without a doubt. But for regular healthy people, moderate salt intake actually boosts your energy levels because salt helps the body hold onto water which I already explained that we need.

Finally consider magnesium which is a specific mineral that’s needed for several processes in your body. What happens is that chocolate, caffeine, soft drinks, and other highly processed foods typically depletes our body of magnesium which can often make us tired. Consult with a doctor in order to find a good magnesium supplement and the right dosage for you.

If none of these tricks or tips help you to combat fatigue, you should seriously consider seeing a doctor because you may have some more serious ailment causing you to get tired every day. But other than that, good old-fashioned exercise also does wonders for waking you up in the afternoon and you really can never go wrong with a little extra exercise, am I right?…

Phenibut – Emphasizing Phenibut’s Importance in the Treatment of Anxiety and Extreme Stress

Phenibut – Emphasizing Phenibut’s Importance in the Treatment of Anxiety and Extreme Stress

Phenibut is short for b-phenyl y-aminobutyric acid and the precursor of the neurotransmitter gamma amino butyric acid or GABA.

This substance was discovered at a Russian laboratory hoping to increase the threshold to extreme stress and fatigue of Russian cosmonauts especially when traveling in a very limited, closed space in outer space.

The scientists proved that phenibut can treat symptoms of anxiety, fatigue, insomnia and post-traumatic stress disorder. It has since been made a must-have dietary supplement that is always present in a cosmonaut’s medical emergency kit. It was found to be the ideal supplement for cosmonauts because it does not cause drowsiness, unlike regular tranquilizers.

Phenibut is believed to possess nootropic or intelligence-enhancing properties, for its ability to improve intellectual performance, improve memory, concentration, and attention span. It is a key component in learning, remembering and speaking a language, in solving complex formulas and problems and making major decisions.

It is important in emotional intelligence, planning, abstract reasoning, abstract thinking and learning. It is also important in motivation and retention.

Phenibut has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and thus can penetrate the central nervous system. It asserts its calming and tranquilizing effects making it effective for people who suffer from insomnia, sleep apnea and helps in improving irregular sleep patterns. It asserts its sedative effects on people who suffer from anxiety and panic attacks by calming frayed nerves.

Phenibut is perfect for cosmonauts because unlike the regular tranquilizers that cause sleepiness, it does not contain ingredients that make people drowsy. It has the ability to significantly reduce stress and anxiety especially among cosmonauts who are confined in a very small and closed space for long periods but maintaining physical strength and stamina.

It is also sometimes used as anticonvulsant to treat people suffering from epilepsy and bipolar disorder due to its mood stabilizing properties. It is used to treat patients suffering from pain cause by certain diseases such as abnormal sensations felt in some parts of the body.

The sensation felt by the patient is characterized by burning sensation, sometimes numbness, itching all over the body and the feeling of having “pins and needles”.

Phenibut is also believed to improve the level of efficiency of dopamine functions in the body and counteracts the effects of phenyletyhlamine.

Don’t take phenibut if you drink alcohol, if you take any kind of sedatives, or under prescription medications such as MAO inhibitors and medications for epilepsy without consulting your doctor.…

Can the Foods You Eat Make You Hurt More? Part 4

Can the Foods You Eat Make You Hurt More? Part 4

Hi Folks,

I believe that “The Wellness Prescription” advice to avoid inflammatory foods is working. I still have pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but I’m doing more activity without as much of an increase in my Fibromyalgia pain and Chronic Fatigue exhaustion as I used to experience with extra activity. Common sense would suggest that if I were maintaining the same level of activity as before I started “The Wellness Prescription” advice that I would be experiencing less pain. However, my business is growing very quickly right now and I have the choice of doing more activity than “usual” with the possibility of extra fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue symptoms or letting opportunities slip by that may affect my long-term financial well-being. So, I’m choosing to do the extra activity and pray that the changes I’ve made in my eating habits, getting the mercury removed from my teeth, and everything else that I’m doing to recover will help me get through without any major flare ups.

Here’s an insightful response to my last article (Part 3 about when to give up) that I thought might be helpful to you. “As to giving up, I visualize a waterfall. It flows continuously no matter what obstacles might be thrown in its way. However, the flow may not force the object away, but simply go over, around or otherwise beyond it. The obstacle simply does not matter. The flow continues no matter what.

As to dieting, my simple advice is always a lifestyle based on eating foods (as much as we are committed to) that do not come in a wrapper, and have no listed ingredients. No bag, box or bottle. The closer you coordinate your eating habits with natural, unadulterated foods, the greater you give your body a chance to build, grow and heal.” by David Merrill
