As I embarked on my spiritual journey many years ago, I was struck by the boundless amount of information that was foreign to me. I was introduced to various forms of holistic health and practices; chiropractic care, acupuncture, colonics, supplements, homeopathy, as well as Reiki and other modalities of energy healing. As my immune system was compromised, after undergoing a major abdominal hernia repair involving 150 sutures, I developed the Epstein Barr Virus. Back in 1987, little was known about the virus and the various strains. I attempted to receive care from the traditional medical community. However, each physician I reached out to thought I was crazy. At that time, it was considered a “yuppy disease”, (all in your head). After many failed attempts to find the help I needed, I met a wonderful woman in a health food store who seemed to understand what I was experiencing and recommended a wonderful chiropractor/energy healer who essentially healed me. I had been an avid weight lifter and exercise junky working out 7 days a week with boundless energy. Suddenly, I could barely make it through the day and required naps when my young children rested. I could no longer tolerate fumes from cleaning products, gasoline, perfume, smoke, nail polish, hand sanitizer. I developed not only environmental sensitivities but food sensitivities as well. I felt like “the boy in the bubble”. I was forced to change my entire diet, which I had previously thought was ok. It was shocking and frightening. I felt so alone and feared that I could die and leave my young children motherless.
