I recently attended a seminar by Dr. Josh Axe (you can read about him here) where he took us through a mass gritty education on gut, adrenal & thyroid health. I had learned a lot to date about health & healing (that's an understatement) in these areas of the body but Dr. Axe raised my educational level to a degree that is life giving.
When I signed onto the seminar, I had an inkling that he was going to provide a commercial if you know what I mean. I had checked out his website and figured this would be somewhat of a gimmick but I have enough medical knowledge to know what he was saying made a ton of sense. In other words, I was skeptical. I am grateful I stayed and listened.
I found Dr. Axe to be the most highly educated physician on gut health that I have personally interacted w/ (and I have interacted with the MOST amazing physicians across the entire country - literally the best of the best). This man has a gift for healing. He is also a strong Christian which I am as well. I appreciate how he incorporates The Bible into his verbiage via his presentations. After the seminar, I signed onto a an educational program of his so that I can learn every single thing I can about how to heal my own body....from him. Through the program, it's as if you are shadowing Dr. Axe (shadowing is a term used in medical academia where a resident follows an attending physician throughout the day to learn the 'craft' so to speak). Signing onto the program was an investment for sure but worth it. I have NEVER signed onto one of these programs before ....to date. I have been invited to sign on to SO MANY! But God said 'go' and when God says 'go', you 'go'. So, I processed for days before saying 'yes' this week. It's really an investment in myself but I am going to use this opportunity to help others and all of you! My goal is to at least point you to the experts who can help you.
There is so much information to pass along to all of you so, I am not quite sure where to begin. I was reminded to just start sharing & leave the rest to all of you...... meaning all of you can piece together the information yourselves. If you have questions, just ask me. I will weave in blogs about what I learn from Dr. Axe along with all other topics on wellness (mental, physical, emotional, spiritual).
I am absolutely amazed at the body's utmost desire to heal and when we feed it foods, supplements, thoughts, exercise and unconditional love .....how dramatically & quickly healing can take place.
As for now, it's absolutely gorgeous here in Chicago so, let's all get off the internet and absorb that heat/sun! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend if you happen to be heading out for a vaca or grilling with family/friends.
I will be taking the week after the holiday off of Snapshots of Wellness to focus on my own wellness.
