How to Prevent Stress Damaging Your Body During a Change

August 16th, 2011

Goog health is all we’ve got to get us through any challenges in life. Without a good health, trying to handle any change can become a nightmare.

Stresses have a way of ruining our health if we ignore paying attention to what needs to be done.

I know this first hand after experiencing my worst nerve pains of Herpes Zoster (Shingles) last Spring.

Early in the year, I had been running around depleting my energy reserves – putting finishing touches to my book Intuition Involution, running the day to day administration of my Centre and trying to find new staffs and keeping a big household going and so forth… You get the picture.

It wasn’t until I woke up one morning with an excruciating pain all on one side of my body and couldn’t go back to sleep that I realized what was wrong. Initially, my skin had been erupting with some small spots for about 2 weeks. I had preiously put this down to some skin rashes, especially as we have been combatting some ants invasion in our kitchen with some anti ants spray.

Sitting up that night in my bed, I breathed deeply and shut my eyes completely tuning in and asked what was wrong. Instantly, I got the answer: “you’ve got shingles”. Yikes, that was a blow. But I knew my intuiive guidance was right.

I decided to take control. I thought back to my past work with former Shingles patients. I told my husband what it was and said I was going to cure it.

As a former naturopathic doctor, I consulted my books and ordered all the remedies I needed and began clearing my schedules to work fully on myself.

After 3 weeks of intensive and rigorous work with: natural remedies, homeopathy, water treatments, breathwork, food supplements and changing my diet, I was completely free of all pain and the skin rashes began to clear.

Remaing Stressfree in Times of Changes

After this experience, I knew that I had to become more aware of my stress level. I decided to pay more attention to things around me that may be causing more stress for me.

Here are 5 tips to help support your body in handling stress in your life, especially when facing changes.

1. When you wake up, take 5 minutes to release any tension you may feel in your body. It is not as difficult as it may sound. Close your eyes and tune into your body. Next, feel the different part of your body by breathing slowing into the tensed parts while allowing the tension to melt away.

2. Learn to prioritize the things you need to do and don’t overcompensate with your time if you can’t finish some work. Make sure you give yourself space between each work. This way, you can restock your energy, even if it’s just for 2 minutes.

3. It is easy to go into a frenzy mode when dealing with changes. Remember to eat well and take some good food supplements. I recommend Spirulina and Vit C. Spirulina is rich in all the Vit B complex and also has some essential minerals and trace elements. It is easily absorbed by our body.

4. Make it a habit of drinking plenty of still water in the course of the day, not only to slush out toxins, but to hydrate the brain cells and decongest your blood. In times of changes, we use up more energy and get easily dehydrated.

5. Before going to bed, sit still for about 10 minutes and do some deep breathing. My favourite is the alternatiing breathing. If you’d like to know more about this, contact me at kunbi@embracingchanges.com and I’ll send you the short description.

I have learnt to not allow outside pressure to undermine my inner peace. I believe this is crucial in being able to manage changes more effectively.

Learning Valuable Lessons From Health Conditions

January 12th, 2006

Wishing you a prosperous, happy and healthy New Year!

Mine started off with a big challenge.

As a Naturopathic Doctor and Psychotherapist my entire life motto has been: solid health first and everything else shall follow. This all the more renders my present predicament very unsettling.

Since mid-December 2005 my husband is dealing with the possibility of losing a kidney and even though I’d seen it coming all along, having tried to get him to change his eating habits and way of life, all to no avail, this does not make it any easier to process.

I have been asking myself repeatedly over and over again, what lessons am I to learn through this experience? What have I failed to recognise or still need to recognise? And what it is that I need to change to turn this learning into a creative and valuable gift?

I like to believe that that every ill-health, whether ours or someone else’s, challenges us to look deeper into ourselves and make changes to better our own health. This is exactly what I have been doing and I came across a very interesting book which I feel might be of interest to other people as well.

The title of the book is: You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty: Water for Health, for Healing, for Life by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. This was a Medical Doctor who cured various illnesses with simple Water cure. You can find out more about this by clicking on the link: www.watercure.com and www.watercure2.org

I’d like to know if anyone else has heard of this treatment and has used it successfully?

Feeling Overwhelmed – Slow Down!

November 18th, 2005

One thing I’m absolutely sure of is that when overwhelmed, we all withdraw and nothing happens.

I had a full dosage of this recently. I have been away doing a 4 days Workshop and one on one consultation with people dealing with fear and energy problems. When I got back home I was met with a variety of chores that needed to be taken care of.

Needless to say that before I knew it, I found myself recoiling and withdrawing. I noticed that by the middle of the week I had  completely shut down and became very uptight.

So I did what I felt urged to do. I decided to take a day of lazying around. This I did by chilling out and refusing to go anywhere or do anything which required too much of an effort. I listened to music, played with our cats, and thoroughly enjoyed the autumn weather outside, by taking some walks in our beautiful garden. All in all, a fruitful and most enjoyable day.

When I got up this morning, I felt my energy surging back. Now I’m ready to take on the world again. As my mind cleared up, I felt new ideas and inspiration being born. The feeling of being overwhelmed have subsided and nothing seems too much to face anymore. So here I am updating my blog, finishing some other writings and preparing my Seminar program for 2006.

To think that yesterday, all these would have felt overwhelming to me.

It’s certainly a wondrous life! I never fail to marvel at how simple life really can be to manage, if one focuses on the issues of the moment.

When Your Body Needs You

October 27th, 2005

Even though I am quite aware of the importance of taking care of your body and health, after all I have spent the last 20 something years getting people to listen to their body and following its wisdom. Still, I was quite taken aback by what happened to me recently.

Our Foundation “Attitudinal Healing” is preparing for its autumn public function. This year, we are holding an art exhibition with music at my own gallery. As president of the Foundation, naturally, I need to co-ordinate a number of things. One of these is organizing transportation for the paintings and the artists.

Well, due to circumstances I’d rather not go into here, I freed up my time, organized a small bus owned by a friend and together with my car, off we went to go pick up the paintings and the artists. Everything went smoothly and together with five other people we got paintings, artists and bus all in one piece back to my gallery.

We spent the rest of the day doing what most other galleries do in the event of an upcoming showing. Hanging up the paintings, labeling them, adjusting the lights, cleaning up, getting things together and thoroughly feeling great about our work. In the past I’d left most of this initial work to the Artists and their friends.

When I got back home that night, the exhaustion kicked in. My body ached, my feet burned from running up and down the stairs and in circles, my head hummed and I felt completely drained.

I realised that there was no way I was going to go through a mentoring class I had coming up at 3:00 AM in the morning! Here was my body telling me very clearly that it needs me. so I flopped down unto the coach in the living room and dosed off for a while. When I got up half an hour later, my body felt like lead which I barely managed to drag along.

That was it! I knew I had to do something fast. I dragged myself down to the bathroom, turned on the tap water and ran the bath. I soaked away my entire weariness and tiredness in that bath tub, feeling with every passing minute the relief and the lightness of being again.

After the bath, I curled up into bed with a cup of hot soothing holicks for my nerves and went to sleep.

When I got up the next morning, I felt rejuvenated and free of all aches and pains. Really, even after all these years, the soothing effect of water still never stops to amaze me.
