I have been struggling with a respiratory infection for a month now. I also have asthma and infections always trigger a flare-up. I have been on antibiotics, additional asthma meds, and stayed home a couple of days to rest. All to no avail. I was still running a low grade fever, struggling to get a breath and feeling exhausted in mind and body.
My pulminary specialist is a fantastic doctor! He knows me and he trusts that I know my body. I have been going to him for the last 20 years and generally I recover quickly once I am under his care. This time improvement seemed a distant wish. This was the fourth time I called him in the past month because I still felt horrible. During the office visit today he completed a traditional physical and drew some conclusions about the course of action. He also took a moment to check my energy levels and determined I was energy depleted. He feared my body did not have the strength to work with the medications to bring about recovery. He suggested an “energy healing.”
I am open to non-traditional medicine because I know the body is ultimately responsible for its own healing. I depend on the help traditional medicine provides my body to heal itself, but I am not blind to the possibility that alternative medicine has great value in assisting traditional medicine in the healing process. Let’s face it, non-traditional medicine has been around for thousands of years in non-western cultures and it brings about results.
I experienced an energy healing today. I can’t tell you exactly how long it lasted but I think about 30 minutes. We sat in comfy chairs across the room from one another and my doctor began to channel energy my way. There was no talking. I didn’t know what to expect but I began to feel something working inside my body; a sort of movement and gentle pressure here and there. I won’t take the time to explain the entire process but I can tell you that somewhere in the middle of the healing I felt peace and physical relaxation come over me to the point that I actually slumped. My breathing eased remarkably, my coughing subsided, my lung congestion eased and I came away feeling a tremendous improvement in my body’s ability to function.
The healing experience renewed my energy level and my spirit. I feel life-force again working to sustain me. I feel energy coming to my rescue and I am happy. This was a great day!
