Hello wonderful’s it has been a while but when life gives you a plate full and you have to make sacrifices at times. Unfortunately it was my website for a while. But I have come back with a lot of new ideas and information I would love to pass on to you.
I am about to start a new series of blog posts and videos that will document my healing journey. I have not had symptoms of fibromyalgia or lupus for a year and seven months now. Although I still do have chronic pain in my hips from medication damage (avascular hip necrosis) it is something I am working on healing right now so I am still in the process of healing myself. I have really debated about telling my personal process of healing my body to you all as many are very resistant to any new information that is not mainstream but I thought that if I lose a few people in the process it will be worth it if it just helps one person. I am not selling supplements or going to give you a magic cure just information from a experiential standpoint from my perspective and a few other people I have talked to that have also healed their bodies of chronic illness. You can take the information or leave it that is completely up to you. I am not a doctor or a professional just a person that suffered for over 25 years with chronic illness and pain and have freed myself of suffering.

emotionally with their illness while others can no longer work because of unpredictable symptoms which makes them a unreliable employee. So how do you know if you should continue to work or quit? Here are a few things to ask yourself.
Chronic pain affects 1.5 billion people world wide. That means that 1.5 Billion people in this world are in constant pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Many people that suffer from chronic pain are looking for alternative treatments for many reasons. They have exhausted all options in the medical community, the side effects of the options available prove to be more pronounced than the actual condition, or they have made a personal choice not to pump chemicals in their body.

Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Both the ancient Chinese and Indian systems of medicine have recognized curcumin’s (Curcumin, which has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, is the most active constituent of turmeric) beneficial properties for thousands of years, and now modern research is showing it may be one of nature’s most powerful potential healers.

Emotional pain and trauma can cause real physical pain and disEASE in the body. We are not just physical beings and our emotions affect us and those around us in very profound ways.
