The Path to Wellness
Regaining Your Health Begins With Listening To Yourself….
The path to wellness can be a long and challenging one, if you or someone you love is dealing with a chronic health condition — particularly one with no simple cause or obvious solution. More and more frequently it seems people are grappling with health issues that impact many areas of their lives, but for which traditional western medicine offers few answers or support.
While more and more is being known about things like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, metabolic issues, toxic mold, allergies and other sensitivities and chronic health conditions, they often remain shrouded in mystery and misconception.
People dealing with these issues often feel alone and unsupported, on top of feeling extremely unwell physically.
In these cases, the path to wellness begins with an enormous amount of strength, courage, and self-awareness. It requires the ability to advocate for yourself, and the persistence to continue pressing on to find the solutions that will help you feel healthy, well, and whole again — often in the face of minimizing or disempowering (but well meaning) medical professionals, friends, and even family.
The Path to Wellness
If you can relate to this experience (or love someone who is going through this) I hope you listen to the latest episode of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast. In it, I'm joined by my colleague. Amy has always had an empowering and supportive approach to therapy and life coaching, but over the last few years, she has developed a specialty in helping people find a path to wellness from challenging, and often complex, chronic health conditions.
She's here today to share her insights into things like:
- How to muster up the emotional strength to advocate for yourself and communicate your needs…. when you're at a low point physically.
- What the path to wellness often looks like, twists, turns, dead-ends and all.
- How to shift your mindset into one that brings you strength, peace, and gratitude during challenging times.
- How to use “radical mindfulness” to avoid feeling afraid and hopeless.
- The lifestyle changes and new priorities that can help you focus on your health.
- How to create a meaningful support system that supports you on your path to wellness.
If you've been dealing with the challenging realities of a chronic health condition, we're glad you're here. We hope this episode provides you with support and guidance on your path back to wellness.
