Ok, let’s move along with my story (in hopes that you will learn from my experience!). I will try not to bore you or go into minute detail, but I want to present everything in an orderly way so it makes sense and you can see the progression. God has always been so gracious to me and always put information, people and resources in my life just when I need them, and this has been no exception. So…
My dentist recommended I visit a new periodontist because she wanted to be sure we were doing all we could to keep my mouth healthy. Obviously, he saw some serious problems so I began what has been 8 months (so far) of gum surgery and treatment. When I began, I was working at a job I’ve had for 7 years. The company was taken over by someone new and all seemed to be going well. However, for whatever the reasons, the person I reported directly to began being extremely critical, abusive and difficult to work with. I won’t go into details, but it was becoming extremely stressful.
I talk about the damaging results of stress with clients all the time, so I thought I fully realized how destructive this can be, especially when you are actively working at healing a physical condition. However, I was amazed by what I saw. I had an appointment to visit my chiropractor (friend, and mentor), Dr. Lynne Kavulich. She has a new diagnostic tool called Zyto Testing and she was going to re-scan my body with the specific purpose of assisting my body in this healing process. This testing would reveal any deficiencies in nutrients as well as any stress or inflammation in organs. I had already done this scan once and it came back quite good, no organs or glands being in crisis.
She knows how I eat and the supplements I take so she didn’t expect to find any deficiencies. We are both committed believers so she also knows that my faith is the foundation of my life. Well, early that morning I got a very nasty work email which really upset me. However, by the time I went to Dr. Kavulich, I had prayed about it, and truly felt at peace and that I had released the stress it caused. Not so much!
When the scan is finished she prints it out and you can see exactly what your results were. Each organ and gland is listed and if the bar next to the organ is in a green color, there is no stress or inflammation in it. Yellow indicates mild and red indicates extreme inflammation. In the first scan all the organs were in the green. Well that day as soon as she showed me the organ scan I saw almost every organ was either in the yellow or red! I was shocked – I asked her why and all she asked me was – have you had any stressful event recently?
I honestly felt that I’d “handled” and resolved those stressful feelings earlier that morning – and while I didn’t feel stressed at that moment, clearly my organs were still affected by the stress! How often do you react to some stressful event and then hours later feel you are “over it?” I truly did – but the damage was done and still happening! And I know that being in that type of stressful state constantly will shut down healing. Needless to say I had to take some steps to change this situation because I knew that I could do everything I was told by the periodontist and even do all the extra things I was doing but if I was constantly allowing myself to react this way, it would all be wasted.
I have always believed that the physical problems are symptoms of an underlying spiritual issue which is why my 3D Living program includes spirit, soul and body. This includes negative emotions, unhealthy beliefs and what I now know are destructive cellular memories (MUCH more about that soon!) So, now I needed to allow God to show me my next step in realizing what the issues truly were that were hindering my body from receiving the healing I know belongs to me.
What He brought to me next has been nothing short of amazing and that is why I want to share this with you in the coming posts.
Have you ever experienced a stressful event and thought you got over it immediately as I did?
