Woman combines guided imagery and homeopathy

05 Jul
A woman finds that between guided imagery and homeopathy, she has a new sense of well-being, energy and accomplishment, waking up raring to go, in spite of a borderline-low thyroid..
Dear Belleruth,

After attending your seminar on the Cape, I started listening to your self-confidence CD, at least once a day, often twice. I started noticing a few things... First, a slowing down of time. Sounds strange, I know, but time felt like it was crawling, and I was getting so much more accomplished with less effort. That was the biggest thing.

Then I started remembering things I needed to remember... Like a little voice would pop up just in the nick of time to save me from forgetting something important. And finding things I''d lost became a lot easier. Your cd''s are infinitely comforting, and I like your choice of words.

This summer I was feeling a bit depressed and sluggish, and some weight gain was getting me down. I started seeing a wholistic MD at Kripalu in Lenox. He asked about my thyroid, if I had had it checked. I had just had a physical and my thryoid test was normal. He told me that borderline low thyroid often slips through the cracks with conventional testing and suggested I take a basal thermometer reading for five mornings in a row (Thermometer placed under the armpit upon rising, before getting out of bed.) My readings were very low - 91 to 93 (the normal being 97 to 98). He put me on kelp tablets and a homeopathic remedy to increase the thryoid -- it has really helped my energy level and feelings of well-being. He gave me a tape to listen to (I haven''t yet) for increasing the effectiveness of the thryoid. I suspect many women in the menopause years probably suffer from low thyroid while still showing normal test results.

Anyway, his help and your CD''s have helped so much with my energy. I now wake up raring to go. I have also noticed that I have been a better mother to myself -- nurturing myself better than I used to. That feels good.

Got to go.
