    racheblue was feeling very good

    I am out of bed, able to walk around my house predominantly unaided. I am alive. My health is improving every day. My body is healing itself now that I have given it the optimum conditions for healing - alkalising and pro-biotic nutrition, clearing unhelpful emotional burdens and mental thought patterns, focusing on the vast positive, wonderfulness of life. I am listening to uplifting music, sharing thoughts and ideas for increased wellbeing.

    • Advice & TipsAm happy to report that deep breathing has become more of a instinctive habit now. It took some time to get here, but now it feels more natural to take a deep relaxing belly breath when tension, fear or anger arises rather than react from a place of fear and lack. Now, I feel empowered by the breath to stand still, strong, centre myself and react from a place of love and empathy (for myself as well as others).

    • Advice & TipsI have been unable to practice much physical yoga over the past 3 years due to RA joint and limb pain but I continue to use pranayama techniques, meditation and mantra to unite body and soul. This helps me to find my centre, feel grounded, connect to the Earth and my inner strength. From this place I am able to manage life's challenges with greater ease.

    • Advice & TipsI practice meditative breathing, deep down into the belly, more regularly than I used to, both to manage pain, as I climb each stair for example, and to keep my mind in the moment rather than wondering off to the past or a perceived future. Feeling centred and grounded means I can connect with my inner strength more easily and not feel as phased by physical pain, emotional overwhelm or mental fatigue.

    • Advice & TipsI started with some juice fasting to cleanse the gut which helped reduce general pains but only whilst I fasted. When eating resumed so did pain. I tried meat broths alongside fasting for couple months to nurture and repair the gut. Again this was soothing but only until I resumed my otherwise 'healthy' organic diet. In March I began the PADDISON PROGRAM which involved a 2 day juice fast followed by 3 weeks of purely alkaline foods (quinoa, buckwheat, green leafy undressed salads and seaweed) followed by a steady increase in more acidic foods - oranges, oats, miso etc till now where I eat an Organic Plant Based diet with heaps of green raw salad, a variety of fruit and veg, quinoa, buckwheat, rice, oats with occasional organic meat (once or twice a month) , gluten free bread, sauerkraut and miso. I do not eat gluten or dairy and have very low amounts of refined sugar. The first few weeks are great as pain levels reduce, the next couple months are harder as cravings for unhealthy foods have not quite subsided. After that it's a breeze! I know what I eat is nurturing my body instead of harming it and moreover, alongside other holistic practices, my nutrition is helping my body to heal itself. Keep it up because unhealthy cravings do subside! My TN pain comes and goes but I have had very few harsh episodes since changing my nutrition plan and it feels as though I can manage them much better through meditation and breathing practices keeping the pain under the surface and calming it. I am happy with that and confident that it will reduce completely in time! My joint and limb pains from RA have greatly reduced to the point where instead of being predominantly bed and home bound as I was earlier this year, I can now get about pretty well with walking stick (though am using this less and less at home). I can get up and down our internal stairs without being carried (huzzah! that was challenging...) and almost all the way down our steep garden steps. I can walk for around an hour without being too drained and recover well after a short rest. Morning stiffness reduces almost every day. I can play and dance with my 3 year old and cuddles are so much easier, as is turning over in bed at night. Life is so much better and I feel confident that with continued nutritional support and holistic practices, my RA will be gone some time next year.
