Every year we set the goal to not go to the ER that year. I have failed every year. This year, both my son and I have had to go to the ER, and it is only January. It looks like were in for another exciting year. I learned that the position and size of the back of your skull can cause or influence all kinds of neurodegenerative diseases, like multiple sclerosis, so I get to see a neurosurgeon next week, which should be exciting.?.
Enough of the crazy medical that doesn’t even make sense to my doctor’s. If the contents of the above paragraph demonstrate anything it is that a lot of our health concerns are out of our control. However, there are many things we can do, and should do that can make a difference. The flu season is in full force and doctor’s offices, hospitals and ER’s are overflowing in Las Vegas. I am staying in. Those with young children, or with compromised immunity should stay away from public places for a while. It is important too to teach our children, and to practice good hand washing ourselves. Eating healthy, getting lots of rest, and exercise are also great ways to build immunity and prevent the flu and other illnesses.
I recently found a great Yoga center where I am able to keep up even with all my limitations and illnesses. It focuses a lot on clearing your mind and allowing your body to do the work. It has improved my fitness and my peace of mind. This particular type of yoga also focuses on brain/body connections and energy healing. It is called Dahn Yoga, and I love it. I have also started using DoTerra essential oils. I attribute the use of their product On Guard to the fact that I have remained well until now.
I have had it impressed upon me that my mental state has a direct connection to my immunity this month as well. I allowed stress and frustration to overwhelm me and was very sick the next day. I had been doing a great job of keeping it at bay with Yoga and other methods. It is easy to be stressed in a world where there are so many problems and so much tragedy, but ultimately all we can control is ourselves. I am working very hard to regain that calm, happy state that I had throughout the holidays. It helps in dealing with my son who is autistic, and it is important for me to model that for him so he learns to manage his emotions. It is not easy, and I’m sure I will have many opportunities to practice.
