In 2010, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and possibly rheumatoid arthritis, a great relief after seven years of poor health. Although I had been a Natural Medicine’s therapist for twenty years, I never had any clients with fibromyalgia or even knew of its existence!
Since the outset of my symptoms, I have been incredibly proactive, using the following healing tools:
- Dr Bach Flower Essences,
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy known as CBT,
- E.F.T. Emotional Freedom Technique,
- Creative Writing….
Researching fibromyalgia, I learned that exercise is key in healing this debilitating condition.
Thus, I have increased my walking, bit by bit, and I am now a true walking enthusiast!

My lung function has improved greatly, my sleep pattern is considerably better, I have lost weight and friends tell me “you no longer look grey”!
However, I have learned the hard way about pacing, and not overdoing things. Sometimes my body just needs to rest!
I am very blessed to live and walk in The Rosses, home to some of the finest scenery and best beaches on Planet Earth!
