Eva - Norway
During my life I have had countless of different illnesses and due to several not so positive experiences with the medical system, I ended up deeply skeptical and resistant to being treated by western medicine. So much so that I would refuse to take medication that was prescribed for me, without making any research about what it could potentially do to my health.
I had stubbornly made up my mind and that I was not pro medicine.
After experiencing the EBM and learning that it is crucial to nurture and deeply care for myself, I slowly started to realise that western medicine is actually something most of us need when illness and disease sets in.
I personally have chosen to combine it with complementary esoteric modalities, which in addition to being very gentle and deeply supporting treatments, are all about how we treat ourselves on a daily basis, our rhythm, diet, sleep, exercise as well as the importance of taking full responsibility for our choices, to understand and express what feels true to us in every moment, as opposed to suppressing it and pretending everything is fine, which I did in the past and it was a sure path to ill health. I have applied these simple changes in my life and it has been straight out life changing.
Today I actually enjoy seeing my doctor, we have built a great relationship and he always respects and listens to what I bring to the appointment, it makes me feel we are a team as opposed to being told what to do and what medication to take.
I also have regular visits at my gynaecologist for breast checks and pap smears, and I see this equally as important to anything else I do to support my wellbeing.
Knowing I was headed in the complete opposite direction this is quite a miracle for me and my change of heart is all thanks to the EBM sessions.
