July 2017 – 2018
This month marks one year since my Crohns flare has been in remission and I started my trek of recovery. Remission as in no more ulcers, fisculas, pain, diarrhea, bleeding and inflammation was not present from this flare. No more symptoms. Clinical Remission was reached just prior to my colonoscopy on July 24, 2017.
Even though Crohns and Colitis were in remission my body still had a lot of rebuilding to do. Remember back in the earlier posts in 2016 when I talked of organ failure e.g: skin shutting down, muscles had wasted and loss of an incredible amount of tissue throughout my body, hair loss and failure of the lungs, gut, bowel, etc. This repairing had to take place since my gut was absorbing finally and my body was able to start recovering.
My blog is my journey from extreme illness to the the diagnosis of Crohns to reaching remission naturally. No western medicine. No surgery. How I recovered and how I worked through the process of healing. I’ve learned so much about health and even more about myself.
Right after the colonoscopy UC was triggered either from the procedure itself or the laxatives taken for the procedure. So, again I regressed. And again it took time to rid my body of the inflammation and then time to heal. (UC is also in remission) With natural healing of autoimmune diseases, time and patience are huge parts of the success in the journey.
You have to understand how the body heals itself, and in this process from extreme illness of disease to recovery, I have observed it first hand. In the homeopathic textbooks Hahnemann discusses how once in diseased state, the healing process of the body reverses to its natural centered state. Before I read this I had already witnessed this occurring and had documented it. My observation of the reversed order of occurring symptoms was completely part of my soul searching journey.
In illness is the old traumas that have been stored over a period of time. In order to heal the body it finds ways to resolve these traumas so that the body can be cured. It is the souls way of healing. If we were wise enough to listen to our bodies better we would have less illness, pain and suffering.
I have had set backs but I did accomplish my goal of healing naturally through what I ate, getting restorative sleep, movement, and holistic modalities.
Many milestones have been reached over the last three years which I’ve worked extremely hard to accomplish. I’m so glad to finally be on the other side of illness with all the resources I need for my future.
love light peace ~Andrea
