Is limbic retraining any use for structural chronic pain such as EDS? (Spoiler: yes!)

Its been a while since I've written for this blog because I've been deeply into the process of following the Gupta Program limbic retraining since February and wanted to give my all to that...ongoing. I've seen massive improvements in many area of my health management, far too many and particular to me to itemise and, … Continue reading Is limbic retraining any use for structural chronic pain such as EDS?

Oxalates, pain and autism

Don’t think this has anything to do with you? Oxalates can be related to a wide range of health issues, from inflammation to urinary frequency, interstitial cystitis, nonspecific joint pain, carpel tunnel, nerve pain, weak bones, vulvodynia, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, tissue destruction, autoimmune diseases, digestive problems, skin rashes, vision issues and just so many chronic pain issues, including fibromyalgia, plus very many more.

An evolutionary trait (is not always an easy one)

Highly Sensitive People spend whole lifetimes feeling like we live on the fringe of all fringes, dancing someone else’s dance (carefully), feeling odd when we compare ourselves with what are supposedly “normal” reactions to everyday situations, when we feel unable to join in because things get too much for us such as when life is too noisy, busy or triggering to be borne by our finely tuned wiring and when we just can’t manage the loneliness of being, apparently, the only one who notices things that, to us, are obvious…So, from now on, let all that be for a higher reason; embrace its potential, not its weirdness or other people's misfits ideas about it.

Speaking as one who feels them quite profoundly in my body, these are my thoughts...

Ehlers-Danlos, POTS and Asperger’s…many lightbulbs go on at once

It can feel like a very long walk down a dimly lit corridor when you are trying to fathom your way out of a long running health condition such as fibromyalgia, as I expect others on the journey could probably relate to. From time to time, if you’re fortunate and diligent enough in pursuit of … Continue reading Ehlers-Danlos, POTS and Asperger’s…many lightbulbs go on at once

When energy doesn’t flow…

This is a topic that’s been on the cusp of my “list” (such as I have one) for some time. I want to explore, just a little…since its the area of the great unknown…how we are energetically connected to our pets and how this can become a dance of many bizarre interactions, energetic signposts and … Continue reading When energy doesn’t flow…
