Since my last newsletter life has been pretty full on with my health journey. Neurology consultation, MRI brain scan, nerve conduction studies, a trip to London for a full body thermograph, dental repair and consultation with holistic practitioner to discuss supplements.
10 years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a condition I truly believe can be significantly improved if not reversed. I have tried various therapies and approaches searching for solutions for wellness, not only for me, but for everyone diagnosed with this condition who have given up all hope. It has been and continues to be a challenging process, but on reflection I can see how much I have learned. I am now in a place where I have much more knowledge and clarity, rather than shooting in the dark hoping for the best. I have read 1 in 3 people live with chronic pain. Everyone's health journey is personal to them, there is no one size fits all, but my hope is by sharing my journey from beginning to end, real and raw, it will inspire and give hope to others to never give up looking for their answers.
My dental journey continues, as does my belief that once this surgery is completed, I will be able to detox my body of metals, toxins and infections, and continue on a pathway to wellness with significant lifestyle changes. You can donate to my Go Fund Me to support me in funding my dental work below.
Tamaya Together Friendship Network
This project has now been running for almost 12 months and it was time to evaluate. I had and still have exciting ideas on how to grow this project, but this required membership to grow to more significant numbers. Therefore, I have taken the decision at this point to draw the project to a close on this first anniversary, but it will remain in the background ready to be re-activated if the demand is there. Thank you to all those who joined and supported the project from its infancy. I hope you found it a fulfilling experience. You can continue to access the newsletters for free on the website.
