When I was a child I struggled with allergies and some other autoimmune issues. As I got older, eating right and drinking enough water to stay fully hydrated helped me “cure” these issues.
But then I found myself in a stressful job, in an abusive relationship, and all of a sudden I was experiencing dizziness, fatigue, rashes, etc.
But this is not uncommon from just stress in general… so I ignored it.
Until one day I was sitting at my desk taking a 911 call (I remember it clearly: it was a domestic violence call and I was having a hard time staying calm because of what I was going through) and my hands started to itch.
Then my feet started to itch.
By the time I was done with the call, my arms and legs were BURNING from the reaction.
I was sent to the hospital to figure out what was up… and the doctors just gave me prednisone and told me to stay on it.
WTF?
So I pressed harder and he finally admitted to me that it was a diagnosis of idiopathic adrenal insufficiency.
I asked him what to do about it. He said take the prednisone and that there was no cure…
WTF?
Y’all, do you know how nasty prednisone is to your body? But I was scared, so I took it… and gained 50 pounds… and felt gross all the time…
About a month after this incident, I started turning to my energy work to resolve this. Lifestyle and diet changes weren’t enough: I had to dig deeper and understand why my energetic systems weren’t balancing appropriately.
I tapered off the prednisone (not always advised, but I was stubbornly determined to not keep feeling disgusting all the time) and found balance with energy work, herbs, and diet!
