A Change is in the Air!

In my life there has recently been a shift. Things haven't  felt overly wrong, yet things haven't felt overly right either. Having just moved four hours away from family and friends I put it down to being homesick or that I was just taking time to settle in to my new life but I am beginning t think it's more than that.
After years of picking up every cold, flu and numerous bouts of tonsillitis and sinusitis I decided enough was enough! I was sick of being sick! After numerous blood tests the doctors came back with nothing. They told me to stop burning the candle at both ends... It's normal for people in your field of work... You are still recovering from gladular fever so there's not much we can do about it. This was not the answer I was looking for. So I decided to check out the natural side of things. My sister had been studying naturopathy and friends had suggested acupuncture so off I went in hopes of some answers.
And I fell in love! Not only could I sense their empathy and understanding of how I was feeling (they had seen my symptoms in many frustrated patients before!) but they had solutions and reasoning as to why I was feeling this way. A few sessions and a bunch of herbal remedies later I was seeing the progress my body was making.
