Align Your Spine, Align Your Life

The condition of the spine is crucial to our overall health and well being. Health and flexibility of the spine is crucial to complete and total health. Yoga is an excellent modality to build,  or maintain spinal health. The spine  protects the spinal cord, the nerve roots, and internal organs. The nervous system is sensitive to vibration, sound and weather. Pay attention to any pain or discomfort. Yoga is a wonderful holistic system to improve  every aspect of your lifestyle . The word Yoga means “union”.  The objective  of Yoga is to align  mind, body, and spirit. I have used Yoga personally for many years. Yoga  is practical and does not require any special equipment. The study of Yoga includes learning to breath properly. The practice of breath work improves health, vitality, and the emotional balance of the body.

Healing Back Pain Naturally:The Mind-Body Program Proven to Work

The spine is composed of  four different zones  – Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar, Sacral. The tailbone is called the Coccyx.  Vertebrae  C1 is called the Atlas. The Atlas supports the skull. Vertebrae C2 is called the Axis. It is located right underneath the Atlas. Together, these two vertebrae work so the head may rotate and turn.  Did You know that each of the spinal vertebrae corresponds an area and function of the body. The connection of each vertebrae to all functions of the body is truly miraculous. A Reflexology session may be designed  to address back discomfort or back pain.

In Her ground breaking book  ” Heal Your Body”,  Louise L. Hay wrote of how thought patterns influenced and created health or illness.  The book is a small pocket size book, yet in it She shared Her affirmations for metaphysical healing of the entire physical body. On Page 73, is a Chapter entitled “Spinal Misalignments.” She created an affirmation for each of the vertebrae, along with a probable thought pattern.

Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life.

Have You ever wondered what Reiki is all about ? Allow Me to share My experience        with You.  Reiki was instrumental in assisting Me to permanent  changes in My life.  As    I navigated through premenopause, I  developed uterine fibroids.  My diagnosis was not dangerous or life threatening, however I suffered from many of the typical symptoms of estrogen dominance. This included heavy bleeding for at least five days a month, combined with volatile mood swings. I was overwhelmed with the choices at hand. The first Doctor I spoke with recommended a specialist. A hysterectomy was suggested. I felt this was an extreme course of action. I decided to seek a second opinion. This Doctor suggested a different, less invasive options of medication or surgery.  Finally, I spoke with yet another Doctor.  I had attended school with Her in My childhood. She explained that uterine fibroids often shrink at the onset of menopause.  Because I was approaching this milestone, She suggested I wait to see what would happen, while continuing to check in with a medical doctor through out this process. This was the strategy I decided on. My next step was to visit the public library. I was determined to find an easier,  safer way to balance My hormones. I signed out books related to My health dilemma . My selections focused on a holistic approach to healing and wellness. Many of the symptoms I had suffered from dissolved as I investigated and experimented with a few strategies I discovered in My library books.

One of the healing modalities I have used with great success is Connected Breathing, also known as  Breath Work, or Rebirthing.  When I began to experience menopause. I had mild hot flashes and and erratic mood swings, because of shifting hormone levels. When I scheduled an appointment for a Breath Work Session, I had never heard of Reiki.  My first experience with Reiki was in a private session.  The Practitioner I found was also a Reiki Master Teacher. The session was a wonderful success. My hot flashes were gone, never to return.  Reiki is often used to balance the Chakras. What I discovered later was that  many each of the Chakras corresponds to a glandular function of the body. Balancing the Chakras in the etheric fields affects the physical glandular function. Over time I discovered My hormones had  balanced.  shifted, and stabilized. Each woman’s situation is unique. Take the time to discover what will work for You. As time progresses hormone levels shift and change. Check in with Your Doctor, for a proper diagnosis. Holistic modalities may be used to balance  hormone production.  For Myself, I have accomplished this using Reflexology and Reiki. 
One of the greatest surprises for Me was discovery of a fantastic new  life was after menopause. As hormone production shifted, menstruation eventually stopped and cyclic mood swings stopped. New opportunities arose – I  become a Reiki Practitioner and Professional Foot Reflexology Practitioner. Positive permanent changes were made inn My life. I established My holistic practice – The Quartz Path. Recently, I launch this Blog – The Quartz Path.
