Daily Headaches – I’m writing about this on April 30th, 2023, because I have had a constant headache since late October or the first week in November 2022, and there is no end in sight!

It is not a series of headaches. Instead, it is one long, unending headache.

It recedes in intensity when I am sitting, standing, or walking. Boom! It then flares to high-level pain when I bend downward (like to put on shoes). It reaches a peak when I cough or sneeze and feels like it will “blow the top of my head off!”

Is It a Migraine?

Healthcare providers and others keep referring to it as a migraine. My mother suffered from migraines that lasted 2 or 3 days. She was super sensitive to light and sound, and she experienced nausea and other typical symptoms. I have none of that and have lived a long life without being prone to any kind of headaches.

Consequently, I don’t think a diagnosis of “migraine headache” is accurate, but it was a starting place when I began researching the topic. Below is a quote that enabled me to find a new way to understand what is happening. Perhaps, it will help you or someone you know who is having a similar experience. Continue Reading →

Intro to Holistic Healing

What the Heck IS “Holistic Healing?”

To answer that, I’m providing a 4-hour seminar

Intro to Holistic Healing

Let’s talk about my Intro to Holistic Healing! For registration details, go to The Fairfax Spirituality & Metaphysics GroupFairfax Metaphysics and Spirituality Group  or register NOW directly with our lovely hostess Reverend Marti Giese –  Marti@blossomforth.us or by calling her at (703) 369-2606.

This intensive Intro to Holistic Healing seminar describes several different kinds of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) techniques in a broad overview. Topics include everything from specific nutrition and exercise regimens to acupuncture, Reiki, essential oils, chi machine (aerobic exerciser), drinkable clay, herbs, and more. Participants will receive extensive notes and an opportunity to suggest which of the subjects  they would like to explore further in classes specifically designed for those topics.

Sorry for the short notice about Intro to Holistic Healing; but I just got permission to put it onto this Meetup site, so I want to share the info with you, in case you live near Prince William Parkway in Manassas, which houses the beautiful venue where I’ll be teaching. Cost $40*, payable at the door.

*Because of extensive preparation and printing costs, refunds are not available for this class.

I hope to see you there and/or at future classes, which I’ll be presenting this year!
