Holistic listening from the heart often gets you more optimal answers than if you just follow what pops into your head. I have recently had to make a lot of decisions regarding my health as the treatment of my chronic Lyme Disease and Babesiosis (think of it as a kind of tick malaria) progresses. As I’m writing this, the chills and fever cycles of the Babesiosis are running through me. While they’re no where close to what mosquito born malaria is like, they do leave me pretty limp and tired sometimes when the red blood cells break.
There is a mountain of conflicting information out there regarding treatment of Lyme Disease; unfortunately very little on Babesiosis, as there is no anti-body test and mine was confirmed with a very expensive live blood test. I had to search to find a holistic MD who specializes in Lyme Disease, and it turns out that her practice is five minutes away from me. I also found a terrific PhD in South Carolina who can test the supplements and food that I eat to re-build back my immune system. Through all of the searching process, I have learned to rely on my early warning detection system.
For most of my clients, I have found that this metaphysical structure is in the middle of their hearts, sort of mid-sternum, and slightly to the left. Because of the brain fog that often accompanies these two tick diseases, I have often had to relay on simple yes/no questions. “Is this doctor right for me?” “Will this supplement work for me?” “Is the nausea that I’m experiencing because of this supplement?” (and it’s quite a long list of pills that I’m swallowing each day!) Having posed the question, I then put my attention into that part of my chest and quietly listen for an answer.
Then, for me, comes the hardest part…accepting the answer that I get. I’ve learned the hard way that if I don’t go with the answer that I’m getting, especially when it comes to relationships, it will just lead to disaster later down the road. If I try and waffle on a no answer that I’m getting… “Oh, it’s not so bad!”, “I can work on this tomorrow.”, or “I deserve to have X, even though it’s not good for me.” (an important wiggling that I end up doing especially when it comes to ice cream), I end up getting whomped on the head with the clue by four that I keep writing about.
I feel like I’ve been given another chance to save my life. My immune system is down to 18% and my metabolism is at 52% so what food that I do eat isn’t being processed very well. Most likely, whatever disease that would have come after this Lyme and Babesiosis would have done me in. Back in June, I was tired, broken, and ready to just die. However, while I know that I have some difficult days ahead as the die-off from the bacteria and parasites gets more acute, (my docs are going easy on me right now), I feel like I have my eyes fixed on the good that I still have left to do.
