Givnology Wellness Arts
May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
I am brand new here, and I am 24 years old.
I have been looking for something like this and finally, I've found it!.
I am disabled and not working, or being able to go to school...I can't even drive right now. I need a lot of support and encouragement to achieve a completely holistic lifestyle, starting with my diet and activity level. I am healing from a lot of childhood abuse issues, and even though I am finally starting to feel, spiritually much better, it is still exhausting physically and mentally. Also,( I'm sure you guys do believe and support this), I am riddled with Candida Albicans (yeast). It is causing so many of my symptoms, and it has been so debilitating, I am disabled.
So I know what I have to do to get my life back. I have to have a very healthy and holistic diet, with no sugar, no wheat, no yeast, no fruits, and no to a lot more.
I also have to devote a big part of my life to physical activity, like yoga or pilates. I know what kind of yoga I want to become an expert on: Ashtanga yoga. I used to do it, and for the past year I have been so sick and so weak, I couldn't do it anymore. The problem is that to get better, I really have to do all this and be disciplined in my life. Put to be able to do it I have to feel better and keep myself centered, so it is sort of a vicious cycle. Especially because I'm so ill, and have a genetically weak liver, I have to work at it harder, and I cannot slack on my eating or physical health, because I can get sick again.
Also, on my spiritual side, I am dealing with severe PTSD, and will forever struggle in some degree with what happened to me, but the calmness and stillness I can achieve with a regular practice of yoga and meditation, can truly help me to stay centered throughout my life.
So, I need help and support. I have the intentions, and some of the knowledge,but for some reason I haven't been able to breakthrough what's stopping me from doing it, and I truly believe that this is what I need to do for everything in my life to get better. I want to eventually become a vegetarian, an ashtanga yoga teacher, and a dog psychologist.
So this is my introduction to you guys, I am so excited, that I'm talking too much...
Do you think I can do it? This is the biggest challenge of my LIFE so far, so I really feel that if I can accomplish this, and I finally get to feel physically well,everything is gonna turn around for me.
Thank you for reading
Sincerely Alessandra

Welcome Dear Alessandra,

It is nice to have you on this very peaceful and love filled website "Givnology."
We are all friends here, and help one another as best as we can in a time of need.Sometimes we just have fun, and come to relax here, or share ideas that may be of interest.

There are many unusual and educational topics here that you can refer back to, and maybe some of them will be of help. There is also a lot of beautiful poetry here posted by our many poets.

I hope that you will find a lot of things that will be of interest and use to you.

Love, Inda

Absitivolutely! Yes "Nothin' to it, but to do it!"

I don't mind your "talking too much" at all! Feel free to "air your thoughts and feelings," hey, a few data bits taken up somewheres, that's no problem, and some of us (not me of course) have the... uh... gift of verbosity! he he.. Nut

You will find some fun and healthy discussion in the Healthy Lifestyles and Know Yourself circles here, and folks will be happy to "discussion" with you about things like yoga practices, healthy foods and substitutes and such.

Forgive me, but I will "jump right in" to some of what you said here. It sounds like you are at a kind of crossroads or turning point or "problem or opportunity" type of phase in your life. Some of your health issues will keep you from doing some things you want to do, but if you turn it around, you could say that you are now forced to do some of the things that you want to eh? Doggie shrink sounds like the neatest goal I've heard in a while! Doggy Doggy Doggy

That will probably require a bunch of book reading, preparing transcripts and edumicational paperwork that well, maybe now you have the "time" to do eh?

You will find supportive people here in Givnology, and also there is the link "Boardroom" where some sites are listed with wellness, health and nutrition, and positive soul friends just like us here - don't disappear though! Frown I'm just letting you know that Givnology is Arts & Wellness, and you'll find a lot of healthy living stuff all around here! Eek

You might want to put a prayer in the prayer circle for support in your being disciplined, and or your health issues, and some specific questions about health and yoga in those circles.

Glad to meet you Alessandra! Pull up a chair, make yourself comfortable, and may you enjoy Givnology and find what you seek.

Love and light being, Teo Wave2 Wave2

Welcome dear Alessandra! I am sorry to hear that you have to deal with quite some issues at your young age, but I feel your attitude is a positive one and above all you have clarity about what you want.

That's why I am convinced that you will be able to reach your goals!

Wishing you to succeed in being determined and disciplinated, in order to realize all your intentions.

May you find what you seek here!

Lots of love and light.
