Self-Healing -- When Medical Science Fails You

If you’ve been chronically ill for a long time and you’re wondering why medical science doesn’t have answers for you then you should continue reading.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 50% of the US population (over 120 million people) suffers from one or more chronic health conditions. We currently have the most expensive health care system and spend more on health care than any other country in the world, yet we are failing to cure people. As a matter fact, according to the most recent studies, United States ranks the lowest among the wealthiest nations when it comes to quality, efficient health care. So if you’re expecting a cure, you better think again.

Below you will find links to short but informative YouTube videos designed to introduce you to healing techniques that you can begin using right now to improve your health. These at the same techniques I teach my private coaching clients.

What is CFS Disease?

What is CFS Disease?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, (CFS) is defined as a complex disorder characterized by extreme fatigue. But if you read my last blog, or if you suffer from this condition, then you are aware that the symptoms go far beyond fatigue.

The onset of my symptoms began in 1989. When my Internist could find no explanation for the extreme fatigue, headaches, muscle and joint aches, and foggy mind that I suffered from, he handed me a prescription for antidepressants and referred me to a therapist. My symptoms got progressively worse until I was no longer able to work at my corporate job.

Having never suffered from anything that a short course of antibiotics wouldn’t fix, I had no idea that I would end up on disability for nine years. It’s mind-boggling that after nearly 30 years of research there are still no concrete answers for what causes this condition.

CFS cannot be defined as a disease because it fails to meet the criteria of a “disease.” The word “syndrome” is used to refer to a group of symptoms defined as a medical mystery – hence the name, "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome." Typically, diseases can be easily identified whereas syndromes are more difficult to identify.

Since chronic fatigue syndrome consists of so many symptoms - symptoms that vary from patient to patient - treatment will depend on the individual patient’s needs. According to the MayoClinic, treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome consists of medications and therapy. The Centers for DiseaseControl and Prevention describes the treatment of CFS as “complex” and one that should be customized to the patient.

After seven long years of following medical advice with no improvement whatsoever, I decided to reclaim my power. My healthcare providers had prescribed so many drugs that I had reached a point where could no longer identify if my symptoms were a result of my CFS or side effects of the medications I was taking.

My recovery required a well-rounded and balanced approach that began with me making well-informed decisions.

Watch this video for more information on methods I used to recover.

What Are the Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

If you are suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, then you will most likely agree that the name is inappropriate. Although CFS does produce debilitating, chronic fatigue, the symptoms go far beyond fatigue. As a result, your friends, family, and coworkers probably have no idea what you suffer from on a daily basis. 

A person suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome will experience four or more of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme debilitating fatigue and exhaustion
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating (Brain Fog)
  • Frequent sore throats
  • Swollen, sore lymph nodes
  • Muscle and joint pain (Fibromyalgia)
  • Headaches
  • Unrefreshing sleep and difficulty staying awake
  • Low-grade fevers
  • Multi-chemical sensitivity (MCS)
  • Dizziness, balance problems, and fainting
  • Inability to recover from exercise
  • Depression and irritability

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a proper diagnosis involves ruling out other illnesses that may have similar symptoms such as:

  • Lyme disease,
  • rheumatoid arthritis,
  • multiple sclerosis,
  • diabetes,
  • hypothyroidism,
  • mononucleosis,
  • lupus,
  • chronic hepatitis.

For some, life is manageable, but for most the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome make life unmanageable. 

As with any severe chronic condition, depression is always a concern. Although chronic fatigue syndrome is not considered fatal, a percentage of fatalities from this condition are associated with suicide. Sadly, sometimes the suffering becomes unbearable.

There is hope! 

I describe my personal 10-year experience with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in two parts: A 7-year journey tumbling into the depths of pain and illness, multiple surgeries, massive amounts of medications, never-ending doctor appointments, doubt and worry, financial ruin, and hopelessness, followed by a 3-year journey of hope transformed into faith, renewed physical strength, restored health and wellness, self-empowerment, and unexpected magical and mystical life transformations.

If you think you are suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, (also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), the first step is to get a proper diagnosis from a qualified medical professional. Unfortunately, some doctors use CFS/ME as a “catch-all” diagnosis when no other conclusion seems apparent. 

It’s essential to your health and well-being to make sure you have a qualified doctor who rules out all other conditions first. Watch this video about Choosing the Right Doctor to Treat Your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Best Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment

healing chronic fatigue syndrome
Being a pioneer of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia is not an accomplishment I would post on my resume however it is significant if you’re reading this article. 

My symptoms began in 1986 and took more than two years to properly diagnosis. Back then, chronic fatigue syndrome was known as Epstein-Barr virus. 

More recently the illness is being referred to as “myalgic encephalomyelitis.” This condition ruins lives no matter what label is placed on it.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1 million Americans currently suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  And, unfortunately, after over 30 years of research, leading hospitals and research centers including the Mayo Clinic still report that there is no cure. 

But I am here to tell you otherwise. I know because I’ve been fully recovered since 1999.

During my battle with this hideous illness  that lasted nearly a decade, I considered myself fortunate to have some of the best doctors available. I was treated at one of the leading research centers for CFS/ME in the country, the Center for Persons with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark, New Jersey. 

Unfortunately, a cure was never discovered. Treatment consisted of an overwhelming variety of pharmaceuticals intended to help manage symptoms and improve the quality of daily life. In my case, the pharmaceutical cocktail prepared and prescribed by the staff psychopharmacologist backfired. The side effects from the drugs were worse than the symptoms of the illness.

It was time to take matters into my hands. My recovery would take nearly three years and consist of an integrative approach developed on my own. And now I’m ready to share what I learned with you.

Watch this video interview on YouTube with Kim Hahn where I discuss parts of my journey.

The Two Faces of Cancer

Meet Jill

Jill is 52 years old. She has three children between the ages of 19 and 10. She’s been happily married for 27 years and has a satisfying and rewarding career in nursing.

On the outside, she is a happy, bubbly, loving person. Jill likes everyone and most everyone likes her. But sadly Jill is battling her third round of breast cancer in less than five years.

Her biggest fear is that she won’t be around to enjoy her grandchildren. She is worried and confused. The stress is manifesting as excess weight that is diminishing her health even further.

Jill says, “My biggest challenge is fatigue… Sprinkled with stress. I know what I need to do - it frustrates and baffles me that I cannot do it.”

Jill is the perfect client for my program because she has a strong desire to get well and stay well. She will continue working with her doctors and undergo chemo. But she wants to do more. She wants to empower herself to get well.

She knows handing her health over to her doctors is not enough if she wants to recover for good this time.

Within the first few weeks of enrolling in the program, she has discovered many things about herself that are standing in the way of her recovery from cancer. She is recognizing inherited, generational behaviors - behaviors she learned and is now passing on to her daughter. She is discovering that the stress of being sick is keeping her sick.

Jill is on a path of self-discovery! Together we are working  to:

  • identify the thoughts and actions causing her stress,

  • develop techniques to reduce her stress,

  • replace fear and doubt with hope and belief,

  • discover and release deep-seated limiting beliefs,

  • accelerate her healing with alternative therapies and techniques, proper nutrition, and better sleep.

For the first time in years, Jill has replaced hope with BELIEF in her ability to thrive! She truly believes she can make a full recovery.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, there is hope!

I Get Asked All the Time, "What do you do?"

What is Health & Wellness Coaching?

Health and wellness coaching is defined as a partnership where the health coach assists the client in gaining the knowledge, skills, tools, and confidence to become an active participant in their care and recovery so that they can reach their self-identified health goals and maintain them long-term.

What does a health coach do?

A qualified coach helps in may ways.

  • Uncovering the blocks that cause the illness in the first place – It's a well-known fact that stress causes illness. Unfortunately, illness also causes stress. Even though the body has broken down to the point of manifesting illness, it's not too late to uncover the blocks that caused the illness and are in the way of recovery. This is an essential step toward achieving recovery. 

  • Coaches help to bridge the gap between the physician and the patient – Too often doctors and other healthcare providers are limited in the amount of time they have to spend with patients often leaving the patient bewildered and confused. A qualified coach can help sort out this confusion and assist the patient in making informed decisions regarding their medical care. The coach can serve as a liaison helping to ensure that the client is making well-informed decisions.

  • Assist with the emotional impact of chronic illness – Being diagnosed with a chronic condition can leave you feeling devastated and completely lost. A qualified coach will assist in sorting through these feelings with compassion and concern while remaining unbiased, meaning keeping the client’s well-being the main focus. A coach will help to instill a sense of control creating a more empowered patient.

  • Assist in exploring all available treatments – A qualified coach will help explore options such as nutrition, exercise, alternative therapies, and mind-body work; basically anything and everything that may help and not do further harm.

  • Maintaining Stability – There are many, many moving parts while dealing with a chronic condition. A coach will help to keep the client on track thus improving the chances for recovery.

  • Promoting behavioral changes – Behavioral changes are one of the most important components to ensuring recovery. A great coach will assist the client in setting the proper mindset especially in the following areas:

    • prior to and following surgical procedures

    • mind-body medicine

    • nutrition

    • exercise

    • education

    • coping with relationships

    • coping with work challenges

    • managing the household

    • ...and much, much more.

Are you ready to get started? Or maybe you need more information. Contact me today by clicking here and filling out the form to learn more.

Studies by the medical community show those patients who work with a health and wellness coach advance up to 50% better than those who don’t.

Are You Struggling to Achieve Your Goals and Dreams?

Every person on the planet regardless of age, occupation, economic status, religious or spiritual affiliations (or lack thereof) has beliefs that can prevent them from reaching their full potential. We are programmed from the moment of our conception by what we see, hear, and feel.  Although we cannot change our past, we can rewrite and master the programs that run our lives – programs we did not choose.

The programming continues daily through the bombardment of media. Let’s face it, drama sells. We’ve become a society addicted to drama. Need proof? Simply review the prime-time program listing of your cable or satellite provider on any given night.
Science now proves that as little as 30 minutes of negativity is enough to activate the “fight, flight or freeze response”  which then releases hormones intended to help us protect ourselves. But when there is no real danger, these hormones have a damaging effect on the body, mind, and spirit.

Think about it. You can watch your favorite movie over and over and still have an emotional response such as fear, excitement, sorrow, or joy even though you are fully aware of the outcome and/or you know the story isn’t true or real. It’s easy to fool the brain.

So how do we repair the damage done by years of exposure to negativity and false beliefs?

There are several ways including different forms of hypnosis and processes like EMDR. Cell biologist, Bruce Lipton states in his book, The Biology of Belief, that PSYCH-K® is his preferred method for effectively reprogramming the subconscious mind.  PSYCH-K allows you to quickly and painlessly change subconscious beliefs that are limiting the full expression of your potential  including your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

There is no reason to struggle any longer.  A successful, meaningful,  and fulfilled life is within your grasp thanks to PSYCH-K.

Everyone can benefit from PSYCH-K. If you’re looking to resolve any of the following issues, PSYCH-K will work.

  • End self-sabotaging beliefs

  • Restore your confidence and self-worth

  • Release stress, worry, and grief

  • Transform fear into confidence

  • Regain your personal power

  • Resolve physical conditions related to disease

To learn more about PSYCH-K, visit the website or contact me either by using the information listed in my LinkedIn profile or by visiting my website's contact page. Let’s discuss your challenge(s) and decide together if this process is right for you. I offer sessions both in-person and via Skype.

The ‘secret to life’ is BELIEF. Rather than genes, it is our beliefs that control our lives. PSYCH-K is a simple, self-empowering process to change your beliefs and perceptions that impact your life at a cellular level. I have personal experience with PSYCH-K and I am confident in its integrity, simplicity and effectiveness.”

— Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. Cellular Biologist, author of The Biology of Belief 

I had a private session with Teresa last week and was shocked at the outcome. The sense of calmness in my daily life has been a blessing! I can't wait to do it again. — Suzann B.

I had a great PSYCH-K session with Teresa that focused on personal relationships. I felt a positive shift during our session and left feeling lighter. It was put to the test the next day when I visited family. There was a subtle but profound change in a relationship that was often difficult. It was softer and tenderer. I am very grateful for this positive change! — Flynne M.
