Welcome to My Blog

Welcome to my blog! I am excited to have you here. About 3-4 months ago I started having lots of health issues first with my thyroid and then about a month later my back. My thyroid has some fairly large nodules in it, since the thyroid helps regulate temperature I had issues with being super cold one minute and sweltering the next. When my back started hurting and I went from running daily to barely being able to walk. I have a bulging disc and it was pushing up against my sciatic nerve. When I forced myself to walk I’d usually burst into tears after a few steps because it was incredibly painful.

I went to see my doctor and he sent me to various specialists. An ENT doctor put me on thyroid medicine to stop the growth of the nodules. The medicine caused me to drop 10 lbs in 3 days and had my heart rate so high I felt like I was hyperventilating all the time! My family doctor gave me a prescription for steroids to help with the back pain. The pills did nothing to decrease the pain. Basically nothing I was doing actually helped alleviate my symptoms. That's when I started looking for alternative, more holistic approaches to health. I started juicing to detoxify my system; I eliminated meat and gluten from my diet; I started doing light stretches & yoga for my back; and I discovered the most amazing thing of all...EFT. I didn't realize at the time that I had discovered something that would help me learn to love and heal myself.

 You might be asking what exactly is EFT? Well, EFT (Emotional FreedomTechnique) is a form of self-therapy that uses acupressure to activate meridians in the body. Our bodies have meridians running through them, little energy highways. Certain traumas can actually block our meridians leading to physical discomfort, emotional discomfort and even disease. By gently tapping the meridian points of your body you can work through and release stored up emotion. This could be emotion that keeps you from loving yourself, loving others, meeting your goals, having limiting beliefs about yourself and so much more! Tapping (EFT) is a form of acupressure, when you tap various meridian points you can help release these blocks. This helps get your energy running smoothly once again.

Tapping has been a miracle and I’ve done a few videos on the subject if you’d like to follow along and learn a bit more.

  1. Large nodules mean they are over 2 cm in size?
