Foot Zoning: Day 1
Today, I started Foot Zoning which is supposed to be excellent for getting the lymph systems to move. Foot zoning goes back thousands of years. There are cave paintings with people sitting like they would to be foot zoning. The man I went to lives near me and is a very down to earth person. He was very kind and explained all of the sore spots on my feet and what they coordinated to in my body. I’m kinda losing hope in getting my lymph to move, so I am so excited to try something new that has had great success or other people. I really hope I get the same success and start to feel better in a matter of weeks. The philosophy behind foot zoning, as I understand it, is your feet are the keyboard to the computer, meaning your body. When there is pain in an area on your foot your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong with the coordinating organ or system.
What I learned from my foot zoner is I am the first person he has seen with Lyme disease. I am probably the worst he has seen with overall issues from almost every system. This doesn’t scare me because it means I can only go up from here.
He asked me to record how I felt and what things changed especially over the next couple of weeks. Today during my treatment I got a headache, which I learned happens to some people. I came home super hungry and super tired (as I am with almost all of my treatments). My nausea has been up today and I have just lounged around the house drinking lots of fluids and doing an IV bag. My anxiety picked up around dinner to where I was crying, but was able to manage it with a calming drink and lorazepam.
I have been thinking a lot today about the church service I attended yesterday and been praying over what I learned. I am also so happy to have Diego with me. It is so nice that I instantly smile every time I look at him.
The foot zoning can take a few days to process and then I go in again on Thursday after my acupuncture. I’ll keep everyone posted on how the foot zoning is working and how my body is changing day to day. I really hope that this is the key to unlocking my lymph system so we can see what disease still is living in my body and not what my lymph is masking.
Here are symptoms I notice a lot today:
-loss of appetite (food isn’t as appealing as it once was)
-pain is still on the bottom of my feet – almost like bruising on the inside
-anxiety is fluctuating
-headache is dull in my skull and sharp on the top of my spine/neck
-overall fatigue is strong
-feeling dehydrated while I am hydrating (dry mouth)
