Autoimmune Disease Awareness in May

For the month of May I am focused on generating awareness for autoimmune disease and mental health.

On my personal wellness journey, I have developed an understanding of the importance of taking a balanced approach not only when treating a serious health issue, but in developing the mindset and resulting resilience that is required when recovering from any setback in life.

Over the years I have done my own study and research with a passion to understand the mind-body connection and how to maximise repair. In my private practice I have been honoured to work with my clients one on one helping them to maximise their mindset to reconnect their bodies. I was fascinated to see patterns that I had also seen on my own journey and began to document my findings to create a program that would help people to prevent disease progression, stress and pain.

My goal has been to help as many people as I can to feel supported and safe during what can be the most difficult time in their life. Whether we are faced with illness, pain or a massive change like divorce in our lives, we know that stress leads to more inflammation and degeneration.

When we promote a calm mindset and look at out our emotional wellbeing, in my experience it was a game changer. It is like a switch flicks over inside of us, our mind and body and the cells connected begin to perceive their environment differently. When we get out of our own way and provide ourselves with the best environment to repair and adapt to change, we can then see our situation with fresh eyes. This in turn seems to promote growth and repair in the mind and body resulting in you being more present in the moment. From this space you can see opportunity in your obstacles transforming your life and potentially the course of your disease.

Set backs I truly believe are designed to move us to a new path that we are ready to walk. It is often a path we avoid out of fear of change, ignoring our inner wisdom. When we suppress our truth the body does an excellent job at screaming at us! That is why learning how to change your mind can effect how you show up in the world and how you problem solve.

For me it is was amazing how my mindset impacted the recovery of my body. It inspired me so much that I studied the mind-body connection, to understand how the body works and how we are so connected. I truly believe that when we finally deal with unprocessed emotions and old trauma’s it can be like turning the tap off at the cause of inflammation, pain and stress in the body.

The Bend Like Bamboo Method has been half a decade in the making, as by trial and error I have applied mind, body and movement practices into my own life and have slowly integrated all the lessons I have learned along the way with my clients I see at my practice. I do this alongside the support of a wonderful team of doctor’s that support my balanced approach.

I think conventional medicine can work well in conjunction with complimentary medicine. I utilise both in my health program and I do what is right for me. I have found that educating myself about the various fields of research has not only changed my attitude from living in denial, in fear, of my future to feeling empowered and becoming an active and informed patient, reaping benefits from all approaches available in our medical fields.

Knowledge is power. Such knowledge can also only improve patient care and I do hope we can live in a world very soon where our neurologists are teaching and educating their clients about wellness prevention and dealing with the cause of their disease, lifestyle factors and nutrition, as well as treating their symptoms with the conventional drugs that we have available.

Naturally the next step has been documenting what I have learned into my eBooks and I am excited to launch my book in the next few months with more information about all the lessons I have learned along the way to help my community.

I give monthly talks on each topic and you can always find information on them here. The Bend Like Bamboo Method builds resilience with flexibility. Connecting a Happy Mind with a Happy Body whilst fuelling it with Happy Food is our philosophy, giving the mind and body the best environment to transform and repair.

This month we will be talking all things autoimmune disease and how you can give yourself the best environment to allow recovery. My number one tip is to allow yourself to change your mind about what can be possible for you. Dive in deep and look at all the stuff that may have been buried there for a long long time. Come on this journey with me this month and let me accompany you on this ride, you are not alone. Letting joy into your life again is going to be key and we need to relearn how to feel again. When you know how you feel you know who you are, you may begin find that your body begins to mirror a fresh mindset, body and life.

To give yourself the best environment to repair we are here to help!
