My Healing Journey
After a bout of depression in my thirties, I was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), despite an otherwise seemingly satisfactory life. I had known childhood trauma, and lived through part of the civil war in my native Algeria, and old experiences and stories had finally caught my full attention...
Soon after, in 2009, I was unexpectedly diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis. I was bed-ridden for a year, after which I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia.
I was told by doctors that CFS and Fibromyalgia were going to be with me for life, and all I could do was to learn to live with them. I refused to accept these diagnoses. I felt my body was trying to 'speak' to me somehow.
From a young age, I had been fascinated by the inner mental and emotional powers and resources we all possess. The doctor’s unequivocal statement about these lifelong illnesses spurred me into searching for ways to listen to my body and heal. I practiced Yoga, meditation and in recent years, self-hypnosis and Qigong.
I stubbornly continued researching, studying and experimenting on myself with the creative ways in which our system consistently attempts to reach homeostasis (balance), sending us messages through our mind, our body and most importantly - our emotions.
Today, after deep and empowering explorations, I am completely healed. I've never been better.
Having been there and back, I have made it my mission to guide women on their own journey of healing and profound self-transformation. Join me.
