There’s a single nerve that connects all of your vital organs — and it might just be the future of medicine
“I had become so stiff I couldn’t stand up,” she says. “It was a great shock because I’m such an active person.”
It was 1993. Vrind was in her late 40s and working two jobs, athletics coach and a carer for disabled people, but her condition now began taking over her life. “I had to stop my jobs and look for another one as I became increasingly disabled myself.” By the time she was diagnosed, seven years later, she was in severe pain and couldn’t walk any more. Her knees, ankles, wrists, elbows and shoulder joints were hot and inflamed. It was rheumatoid arthritis, a common but incurable autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks its own cells, in this case the lining of the joints, producing chronic inflammation and bone deformity.

Over 80% of us will experience adrenal fatigue multiple times over our lives. It’s an epidemic that most people have no idea exists. The few that are aware don’t fully understand its root cause or how to heal from it. This isn’t surprising given that medical science and research are still in the dark about this prevalent condition. It will be decades before science begins to reflect the information I am sharing with you today about how the adrenals function. Even then, science will only know a part of the picture.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a catch-all for autism, pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), and Asperger syndrome. ASD affects about 2 million individuals in the United States, and is 4.5 times more common in boys than in girls.

Back in the ’80s when I was birthing my first child, it was difficult to find a doctor who would agree to the kind of experience I wanted. My idea of birthing was one in which I did all the work, and the midwife or doctor stood by in case I needed them. No drugs. No procedures. No interference. I did everything I knew to make that happen.
But just moments before I gave birth to our first child, a vigorous discussion with the OBGYN ensued while I was in transition. You might know about transition: the component of birthing where you wonder if you’ll make it because it’s the most rigorous and painful phase of childbirth. Mine turned into a debate with hospital staff, Continue reading
Pain is first energy, second perception, and third physical manifestation. There is no other source of pain but energetic. Physical presentation is always secondary. Every single origin of pain in our bodies can be traced back to a specific emotional state which functions to warn us that there is still work to be done in areas of our lives for which we have yet to integrate lessons. Once we integrate those lessons, the pain disappears.
The body is extremely literal when it comes to pain. The experiences in your life directly manifest in your body, and when you encounter an emotional stress, your body shows you exactly what the problem is. The only thing you need to do is decode it. Continue reading

Your thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate your metabolic rate, which impacts how much energy you have. Although it doesn’t get much attention, consuming sufficient iodine is critical for a healthy thyroid. Since fibromyalgia at its core is an energy crisis, it’s important that those with FMS are aware of symptoms that might suggest iodine deficiency. Let’s look at seven symptoms of iodine deficiency and what you can do about it. Continue reading
