MELTed Self Care and Be A Health Advocate for You and Loved Ones!

I’ve MELTed every inch of my body except my left leg from the knee down, I have some wicked bruising on the lower leg too so I’m staying away from that area.
 I’ve also done some restorative yoga, all on the bed of course!
For my MELT rebalance, I took off my removable boot cast that I got from the Orthopedist today – I wanted my foot to have contact with the bed so I could get the neurological feedback up that side of my rooted core – Crutches are enough to throw your system off. I was careful and bolstered my leg and the roller with some pillows so I wouldn’t rock and risk having too much pressure on my foot.
Lesson of the day for me  . . . Don’t let a Doctor just hand you pills, give you orders, and not allow you to ask questions and have a dialogue with them. That’s NOT someone who is on your side! I don’t care what your degree is, its called respect!

I Went to the ortho today and they did their own X-rays, and the Dr said the avulsion fracture most likely came from a ligament tearing away from the bone (tibia) and it pulled a chunk with it, and I severely sprained all the major ligaments surrounding the joint. I asked about an MRI to be sure of the soft tissues because I heard and felt a horrid tearing at time of injury on the lateral side where most of swelling is and some really wicked bruising. He said an MRI is for when you don’t know what’s going on in there and he knows what it is, and wouldn’t even say an avulsion fracture is a big deal, and so he gave me a boot, another anti-inflammatory script, another pain Rx, asked if I have acid reflux, I said no, and he said you should take Prilosec anyway, and finally said to take aspirin a day so I don’t get a blood clot due to the fact that he doesn’t want me to move for at least 2 weeks, and then after that slowly start moving my toes, foot, and ankle. What? So basically I am with him less than 5 minutes and I have 4 pills to take, and not one word about actually helping my body heal itself!!! 

I respectfully and politely told him I started moving them already for the lymph system (this is what removes the excess fluid and debris) , have been treating my connective tissue with MELT, and I was getting ready to ask him if it was okay to have time without the boot for melt, hands on work, acupuncture, and soaking in warm bath , etc., but he shut me down and said “I’m trying to tell you what to do here if you would just listen!!”
Really? So obviously I paid him no more mind, waited for my boot knowing I would not go back to him again for any follow ups. And BTW, He was in and out in roughly 4-5 min. People truly need to have advocates and knowledge of the body and healing because that was crazy! I don’t want a Dr I can’t even have a normal conversation with. Reminds me of my client with RSD, she had a Dr. tell her she just needed a pint of ice cream and a boyfriend! Truly sickening!! 

So anyway, I will continue my Traumeel topically and orally for swelling, my daily MELTing, restorative yoga, and some homeopathic and essential oil remedies for healing bone and connective tissues recommended by some awesome ladies​. I’ll be talking more about them as I begin. I’m going for some acupuncture and moxa as well soon. ​I’m ​Truly grateful to have access and curiosity for​ the world outside of traditional medicine​!​

“Patients and their loved ones have the right to ask as many questions as they need to, and they should. No one should take what a doctor tells them without asking questions. Everyone should leave a doctor’s office or hospital understanding what is going on and what is being done about it. Everyone, the doctor and patient alike, should be on the same page, with the same goals in mind.” – Jennifer Hall

Day 30 of #nourishwithyoga our last day, and I’m doing#upavisthakonasana all bolstered up!! This has been such an awesome challenge and I truly believe in movement medicine and the power our bodies have to heal themselves. Yoga is another perfect avenue for healing!!

Thank you to the hosts and sponsors for a beautiful challenge! It was truly inspiring!!! Love and Light!
Namaste

“The autonomic nervous system is divided into the sympathetic system, which is often identified with the fight-or-flight response, and the parasympathetic, which is identified with what’s been called the relaxation response. When you do yoga – the deep breathing, the stretching, the movements that release muscle tension, the relaxed focus on being present in your body – you initiate a process that turns the fight or flight system off and the relaxation response on. That has a dramatic effect on the body. The heartbeat slows, respiration decreases, blood pressure decreases. The body seizes this chance to turn on the healing mechanisms.” – Richard Faulds

Namaste to the hosts

Here are some before and after photos of my foot/ankle. ITs not dramatic, but you can tell how MELT helps coloring, swelling, and you can see some of the discoloration change in some of the pics . . .

Love and Light,
