I get by with a little help from my friends

Did you think that I’m functioning as a normal person all on my own? Oh no, I have a team of specialists working around the clock on it. It’s taken time and money to realise the benefits of having a team of experts on your side. You know that Seinfeld episode where George says, ‘Oh yeah, everybody’s guy is the best’. Well my guys really are the best guys. Who am I to decide this? I’m the judge and the jury Mister and the verdict is in and it’s guilty!

GEORGE: My back is killing me.

JERRY: You gotta go to my chiropractor, he’s the best.

GEORGE: Oh yeah, everybody’s guy is the best.

Kinesiology: This is a hard one to say and an even harder one to explain. Basically your feelings and emotions are stuck in-your-body. The shame I felt being shut down as a 6 year old? That’s in there. The heartbreak I experienced at 21? Also there. Kinesiologists identify these and then help to move the energy through and release it using a combination of muscle testing, flower essences, pressure points and sound healing. It’s crazy and amazing to feel the lightness of letting go to of this old stuff you didn’t even realise you were holding onto and to align yourself to what you do want. It seems like magic to me. Elena Pilch is my Kinesiology guy. Don’t know how she do the voodoo that she do so well. It’s like a spell! Elena is the bomb and has great online resources and does intuitive readings too. I try to have an appointment every few months.

Naturopathy: Naturopaths help you to feel well through food, vitamins and herbs. They look at the bigger picture and treat the cause not the symptoms. I love my GP but she’s so pushed for time and is unable to have lengthy discussion about my food and sleep habits and hormone levels like my Naturopath is. And these topics are of course wildly fascinating! When are you feeling tired? How’s your concentration? What do you eat for breakfast? It really is the way of the future. Aiming for optimal health rather than just non-sickness. My Naturopathy guy is Donelle Croker (AKA Nellie Nurture) at Elk and Me. She’s a pixie full of wisdom who dispenses ‘delicious’ herbal potions, vitamins and sage advice. I have a monthly appointment with her.

Coaching : Now this ain’t my first self-help rodeo. I’ve bought book after book after on-line course in search of the new and improved me; a Buddha with the corner office and an amazing hair-do and boyfriend named Brad. But a life coach is like a walking, talking, interactive self-help book. A real life person who supports you with goal setting, offers you advice and is like a cheerleader, counsellor and BFF rolled up in one. Michelle Robb is my life-coach guy and through a series of phone calls, helped me set and achieve goals like doing this very blog. Life is hard, why not have a coach to pep talk you? After all; There’s no crying in baseball! I schedule coaching appointments as needed.

So you see? My impression of being a normal person is only made possible with a little help from my friends. Live in chef and personal yoga instructor to come surely. Surely you’re not serious? I am serious and don’t call me Shirley. I told you George, my guy’s the best! Do you have your own team of experts? Who are your guys?

  2. And get a good massage once a month to get you back in touch with the body, increase circulation, flush out the toxins from your muscles (like lactic acid), relax muscles and increase range of motion. (PS I work as a massage therapist!) All the best Yvette! xx
