I went to a Homeopath last night after work and it was so enlightening and I have hope that I may be on to something. First of all I have never had such a complete and thorough medical history taken by any doctor…EVER. Everything mattered to him in the grand scheme of things and things that I would never have thought to tell him he wanted to know. He then took a face reading. Meaning he looked at certain genetic markers in the face….such as a widows peak or closed or separated ear lobes etc….the same things I looked at when learning about genetics when I was in college. He identified me as a RED on the Miasmic scale. This means my genetic line is descended from the Farmers of the ancestors. I have the Earth Element and I love to grow things, love working with plants and animals….all true…I became a biologist for petes sake. He also said I am competitive like animals and love jewelry (animals such as birds like to be pretty to get a mate). I tend to be emotional (well yeah…!!!) and I am good with relationships HOWEVER I have very few relationships and tend to just like a few small ones or just even one (like with my husband). He said Reds hate crowds and people exhaust them. Reds are very hard working and productive. They stick their nose to the grindstone and just work all day and they are happy but if there are problems or others stressors they get overwhelmed very easily…..that is so me. Once they become overwhelmed the stress wrecks havoc on their body and the weakest spot is the digestive system….this in Chinese medicine is connected to the lungs and other systems. Headaches, muscle spasms, fibromyalgia etc become a problem over time…plus I have had a few other glitches in my life that have come up that have created a very unhealthy body in certain ways. He said Reds are fiercely independent and need quiet time every day to recharge.
So he described me to a tee and is starting me on some remedies that may in time help my system reorganize itself. I have an animal based one SEPIA that will help the liver (digestive system) and then a plants based one that will help with the fibromyalgia. Both will renew my energy but at the same time quiet the nervous system. I take them both once a week three days apart from each other. I will see him again in 4 weeks and we will keep tweaking this until I am right.
This was so in harmony to how I am feeling and it will be interesting to see how this goes. I told him I want to get off of all my meds eventually and live a pain free, restful, peaceful life. Now I just have to meditate and exercise and do yoga he said is the best. The cold right now is too much for my fibromyalgia but yoga will help the body and mind and will afford me a sense of well being.
I just got a job working for a Non-Profit that sponsors a myriad of other non-profits in the area. There are presently 70 non-profits in Moab and they can only sponsor 13-14 a year but we have our hand in all the non-profits in some form or fashion. Wabi Sabi is really the heart beat of Moab and we get our money through many ways the main being two thrift stores. There is the Warehouse and the Thriftique. I mostly work at the Thriftique. Its awesome because I get to play with vintage stuff all day. The director is a yoga instructor as well and offers yoga very cheaply to all non profit, school and government employees twice a week plus their are other services offered. My husband will be running his practice out of the yoga center and he is offering discounted services through this organization as well.
I will include pictures and a more thorough post next time but I wanted to let everyone know what I have been up to and I love it. I love my job and I love this new doctor I am going to so we shall see.
