My Journey Back To Health
by Natasha Gabriella Ramsaran
(Trinidad west Indies)
My name is Natasha Gabriella Ramsaran. My experience of Chronic illness began in August 1999 when I awoke with cold symptoms, excessive mucus, diarrhea, body pains and breathing problems. It was followed by severe tightness in chest, all types of infections, digestive problems, depression, food allergies and anxiety attacks. My weight went from 106 lbs to 69 lbs in a short space of time. I sat to sleep for many years which resulted in Spondylysis. I was constantly rushed to the hospital several times for a day for oxygen and Nebuliser because breathing was difficult. What I thought was just a common cold ended up in years of suffering and pain.
I went to many medical doctors but no one could find my cure. Eventually after years of testing and wrong diagnosis I ventured down the path of Natural medicine and Holistic health where diet and lifestyle changes were made together with building my spiritual life as well as starting Yoga which really impacted my life in a very positive way. Yoga has enhanced my lung capacity in such a marvelous way that I have overcome my respiratory challenge. I no longer have to be rushed to a hospital again. I am 90% better than I used to be with just few symptoms. Yoga has really strengthened my immune system and digestive health and I am proud to say that the Asanas and Pranayama have helped immensely to change my life of doom and gloom. My illness surfaced because of years of repressed internalised stress and the Yoga Asanas has really helped me come along way with emotional stability.
Although I still have room for improvement, I will continue my practice because my life now is more focused and complete. And I am a Holistic Consultant and a certified Colon Hydrotherapist and I am introducing my clients to this holistic approach.
I thank My Lord Jesus for healing me and opening my eyes to this holistic Approach!
