I woke up this morning to the news that one of my patients had passed away during the night.
When my husband met her, he described her to me as being “like sunshine”. Saying someone is like sunshine is very odd – especially for my husband who doesn’t usually talk like that. When I met her I realized exactly what he meant. She was like sunshine – she radiated joy. I don’t think anyone in a room with her could help but be affected by her positive energy.
When I met her, she was feeling the best she’d felt in years. She’d lost a lot of weight and she was living the healthy lifestyle that she’d put off living for a long time. Now, instead of just watching her grandkids play and being exhausted afterward, she had the energy and ability to enjoy playing with them. She was also mentoring others in her lifestyle and was really thankful to be able to benefit others in that way.
She’d been feeling great for about six months and then the pain came. The cancer had spread. Our bodies are made to heal and grow naturally. For many people, cancer occurs when the body is so taxed by an unhealthy lifestyle, or other physical limitations, that the immune system is unable to identify and destroy the cancer cells that normally grow within all of us. Several months of healthy living allowed this woman the joy and energy in life that she wasn’t able to feel before, but for her, it was not enough to allow her body to function properly.
A healthy lifestyle, acupuncture, and chiropractic all work together to allow the body to heal and function optimally. This woman’s life may have been very different if she’d chosen that healthy lifestyle years ago, before her system was so taxed. Her story reminds me that it can be too late to choose to live differently. Please, make better choices for yourself and your family today. I am here to guide you on that journey. Call me at 619-630-0802 to schedule initial acupuncture exams for yourself and your family and find out what you can do to help your bodies heal and function optimally.
Join me in praying for, and sending love to, this beautiful soul and her family.
