Sometimes people ask me why I got into holistic health?
Like what was the turning point, coming from such a medical upbringing?
Well it goes back a long way,
all the way back to my first pregnancy.
I had pre-eclampsia, so really high blood pressure,
I had a months bed rest at home, but couldn't stop myself jumping up doing little house work jobs.
I then ended up in hospital on bed rest because of the blood pressure and swelling from the pre-eclampsia.
I went along with what the professionals said, never doubting anything.
I ended up having a premature baby, 2 months premature.
We both ended up staying in hospital for weeks,
my blood pressure wouldn't settle,
I had a sick baby in an incubator, it was the scariest thing ever.
I was told to lie on the bed and rest, as they couldn't control my blood pressure.
One day this beautiful soul, a nurse came in, with a little note in her hand.
She said this might help you if you truly believe.
It was an affirmation from Louise Hays book about how you can Heal your life.
The affirmation for blood pressure, was around releasing the past.
I believed it, but it took me a while to process that I could actually be creating stuff in my own body.
That lead me to a huge search about our mind and body and how our mind can create illness in body.
Through conscious breathing, you can control your blood pressure, through mediation you can as well, hypnotherapy too.
So people say but that stuff is hereditary as well,
and I say,
Is it, or is it that you are recreating the same hereditary patterns?
