Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Telling the Truth Tuesday - Being skinny
About six months ago, I went to an alternative healer - a chiropractor/kinesthesiologist (muscle testing). I went because I have a chronic hoarseness and it affected my singing.The traditional western docs tested me up the ying yang and nothing was revealed that helped.
During that first visit I mentioned being hypoglycemic and that I became extremely irritable and anxious if I didn't eat every few hours. He put me on a supplement to balance my blood sugar and my life has changed dramatically for the better. In addition to that, he said my adrenal system wasn't functioning properly (which would affect metabolism). Over the next few months, I lost an additional 15 pounds and now, I can pretty much eat what I want and not gain weight. It's pretty miraculous.
I spent about 60 seconds feeling sorry for myself that I spent so many years being overweight and thinking I was flawed because I couldn't maintain a weight loss. I have learned to eat healthier and exercise, which is a huge part of being a healthy weight. But if something is wrong with your metabolism, that's a whole other story.
Now I am just grateful I found someone who helped with this huge issue. We're still working on the chronic hoarseness - it's better but not totally resolved. I'll keep you posted...(lol).
Have you struggled with a long-time problem and found alternative solutions when nothing traditional worked?
