So how is my health back in the sun?
After a couple of years of achey joints, fatigue and other classic post menopausal symptoms I eventually realised I had to take action.
The diagnosis of high inflammation is common in women my age but also extremely dangerous.
You need to put the fire out.
Earlier this year I spent 5 months working on my health, fasting, juicing, raw food and releasing.
Slowly but surely I started to feel better and figured when I got back to the sun and cranked up the Vit D3 then I would get my body back.....pain free.
Spending time outside makes me feel good and the oxygen, ocean, moon, stars and the sun all help to heal the body.
So 8 weeks later I am feeling better and better.
I actually twist my waist round expecting the pain in my lower back to be there but it has almost completely disappeared. My shoulder is perfect again and when I am doing my yoga there is not even a twinge from it, even I am amazed.
I read the book about extremely high doses of Vit D3, fascinating read, how the body heals when you get this vital hormone and although I have not supplemented any, I spend most days and nights outside so clearly getting a lot more than I did in Scotland.
My drive is back too. Not to the intensity of before, but thats ok, I was a bit frantic before, much happier to go with the flow.
The other great thing is the bloating. My internal organs were swollen due to the inflammation and it was sooo uncomfortable along with being pretty ugly.
Spending time in Nature, beautiful places, happy people and sunshine makes it easy to stay in a higher vibration.
Our cells LOVE a higher vibration, they stretch out and languish in the love vibe.
They release crap in that state and allow the flow for healing and happiness.
I have been supplementing magnesium, Vit C, omega 3 and that along with everything else I have been doing including visualisation has stopped the contraction that I think could be the start of a hot flush, although I never had any, I had funny sensations.
Still juicing most days, my appetite here is tiny, I eat way less than I do in the UK.
Loads of fresh veggies and fruit along with perhaps too much beer.
I need to tap on cold beer in the heat because it seems the best thing to drink, when clearly it is not!
After reading the amazing book by Sondra Barrett called The Secret of your cells I have been doing way more visualisations too. I had intuitively started to do this with my clients, getting into a communication with your cells and telling them what you need and beaming love, appreciation and basically anything that helps the relax and expand.
I am excited about my next Retreat coming up in October, the incredible impact you can make on your health and happiness when you understand how and why, its is a very, very exciting time for healing and getting onto a high, happy vibration.
Sometimes we get far too serious about life and lose our sense of humour.
None of know the day we leave this Planet, so it makes sense to value your body, mind and time left here.
But never forget to laugh and have fun.
I have been listening to far more music again, dancing more and going to see bands.
6 months ago I could not do any of that.
I am so grateful for my health and new found pain free, energetic body.

Hey Lilia..I am Angela MacVicar's cousin in Victoria, B.C., Canada..I have read a few of your blog entries and have really enjoyed your blog entries sharing your spirituality and your advice and can almost feel your energy..this entry coulden't have come across my fb page at a more appropriate time....To be short...I had suffered and avulsion fracture of my right femur Oct 2014, , which after 9 weeks on crutches resulted in severe osteoarthritis in my lft knee..The following months of pain, swelling of multiple joints and muscle aches and horrific muscle cramping, have been diagnosed with what my rheumatologist called multi-joint inflammatory RA....to which he has treated me with two 120mg doses of injectable prednisone. ...Now I have been started on weekly doses of 10 mg of methotrexate, and the other 6 days per week daily 5mg dose of folic acid...Side effects I have been fighting are lessening, and I do feel like the chemicals are kinda helping, but......I do prefer a more holistic approach when I can...I am a chronic daily recreational marijuana smoker and am waiting on an appointment with a Dr. at a very reputable Canabis Clinic to get my medical marijuana card to enable me better access to edibles, tinctures and creams as well as the differnet strains of smoke to help as well..so I just wanted to introduce myself to you and say how much I enjoy your blogs..cheers to you Lilia..No wonder Angela and Johanna and all the family love you so much xx
