I loved being a guest on Dr. Paula Joyce’s radio show, “Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit,” to talk about the deeper energetic ways that headache and migraine sufferers can heal. She and I are simpatico souls, whose mission is to empower people to follow their personal paths of healing and take charge of their life and health. Thank you, Dr. Paula Joyce for having me on! *

Episode Description

“Pain, disease, and conditions of the body are treatable, and even curable, in ways that we haven’t understood until recently. The dominant belief that headaches and migraines are not curable has led to unnecessary suffering and addictions. There is a way out of this when we choose to take charge of our own health. I have learned this for myself, and I no longer get migraines or serious headaches. If I feel the beginning of a headache, I can get rid of it in minutes. Many researchers point to data that headaches change the brain and you need the medications. What they don’t tell us is that the brain is also capable of healing itself and changing back to a condition of health. The path to healing involves taking a close look at the way we live, including our diet, relationships, and how we deal with our current and past emotions, stresses, and traumas. Please join us Thursday to learn how to take back your life and defeat migraines and headaches.”

The Headache Healer’s Handbook #BookReviews UK Edition

My book is also for sale in the UK, so I was delighted to receive such an amazing review from Notebooks and Glasses.

The Headache Healer’s Handbook: A Holistic, Hands-On Somatic Self-Care Program for Headache and Migraine Relief and Prevention is the bible for anyone who suffers with headaches and migraines. It has over 380 pages of everything you need to know to understand headaches and migraines and how to help manage them. Although I don’t regularly suffer from headaches (I mainly get them as a result of my neck pain), I decided to read and review this book as I thought it would be useful to my readers.

Be sure to head on over to Notebooks and Glasses, where you can read the full review.

Also, the link in the first line of the above review goes to my book’s page on Amazon UK, which has its first review, ending with the tasty tidbit:

Bottom line: since using this approach I have had many fewer migraines (having suffered regularly, sometimes for several days at a time), and can clear them in less than an hour (sometimes a few minutes) when they arise. This is essential reading for anyone whose life is regularly disrupted by tension headaches or migraines.

Now that reader is tackling the book and his or her headaches by taking action — taking the ball, and running with it! Way to go . . . and I’m so glad I could help!

We Get Busy

DSCN7317

We get busy. We get busy and forget to breathe, to pay attention to life. That we’re right here, right now. We lose connection. Maybe we never had it. But we want it, yearn for it. You, me, we, people, life.

Transformative work can bring you back into your body, put you in touch with your cells, with yourself on the cellular level. You can breathe, relax, relieve pain, tension, and stuck places. Find the spaces you can’t feel into, that are numb, tight. You’re suddenly aware of qualities you’ve embodied—a wooden board, a bungee cord.

Bring your awareness into your body. Feel yourself breathe. In the moment. Settle into your Self and feel gravity hold you, right where you are. Feel. You’re alive. Breathe. Let it go.

Let go of the grip of now of then of centuries past. You were gripped by what you feared and tightened against, or learned to please, squeeze, or run away, or stay paralyzed, frozen, tucked in, tucked away. It was reaction, safety, protection, wanting affection.

Let those toxic layers get cried away, yelled out, coughed up, shaken out, drawn away, melted down. New skin, new shape, new ground, purpose, meaning. Ease in.

It can be refreshing, soothing, plumb the depths, release the pain. You’re the explorer. You and your body carve the path. Keep breathing. It all unfolds as you grow.
