My Health history

Even though I grew accustomed to homemade and organic food, since I was a teenager I suffered a lot from unbearable abdominal pain. Several nights, I kept my parents up with me because I wouldn’t stop vomiting. Many tests and exams on the digestive system and all came back normal. After almost 15 years, a doctor requested a thorough examination and ended up discovering that it was the gallbladder that was not working perfectly and I was recommended to have it removed. I refused the removal surgery and with functional nutrition with a qualified professional, I no longer suffer from abdominal pain and other effects. ⁃ Part of these symptoms were also caused by moments of a lot of stress and anxiety, which I disregarded this possibility, because I thought I was “too young” to suffer from it, even though I heard it directly from a family doctor. ⁃ When I was in my physical therapy graduation, studying in detail the functioning of the human body, I understood how it can develop symptoms and even chronic diseases due to the avoidance of treatments necessary for the management of stress and anxiety. Since then, I have found techniques that help me manage them so that I have a better quality of life. ⁃ Techniques such as: meditation and breathing, use of essential oils, cryotherapy and infrared to promote body relaxation, resources used within sports physical therapist, but which are now accessible to the population.
