On January 9, 2019, my life changed radically. I made an appointment with a chiropractor to adjust my left hip, which I’ve had problems with for several years. I had done some research on this doctor and was aware that he did some other “holistic” type of work as well, but his training had been chiropractic and kinesiology.
The concise version as I understand it is this. He touched my forearm (apparently sensing cues from my muscle memory), and told me I had had 2 falls; at 10 months and 14 years (obviously I only remember the one at 14 years but – true). Both were during daylight with eyes open and both were a forward fall. Since then I have been in “fight-or-flight mode”.
He said my central nervous system just needed to be reset, very much like a computer. For those of you who know me well, you know I had great difficulty sleeping. I also had acute RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), in other words, EVERY night I dealt with legs that spasmed throughout the night. This condition was so debilitating that it affected every facet of my life, including all my relationships. I struggled with concentration, memory, my emotions, and constant exhaustion. It prevented me from going further with my career because I couldn’t do interviews. That kind of stress would undoubtedly keep me wide awake all night, even with sleep drugs, and the result was a very poor performance. In the federal public service, I never succeeded beyond the administrative level despite my belief that I had the talent and ability to go further.
I spent 40 years taking brain altering drugs, prescribed by doctors, neurologists and sleep specialists, to help me get, at least a little sleep. I have been reluctant to post this declaration because I honestly can’t believe it myself. I keep expecting the spasms in bed at night to come back. How is it possible they are just gone? How is it possible that I don’t have to take a pill to go to sleep.
It’s been 9 days and I am a different person. I feel younger, stronger, more energized and he tells me the positive changes have only just begun! After 40 years of not sleeping I can well imagine! When I think of the money I have spent over the years on drugs and specialized tests, gadgets and sleep-promising merchandise, massages, and treatments, the cost for this “miracle” was negligible, and it was all completed in a one-hour session! I only wish I’d known about this man and his treatment/technique sooner. I am, forever grateful, for Dr. Tangri ❤
