100 million people in the US and 1 billion worldwide struggle with chronic pain. The US spends 2.5 times more per capita on disease and health care than any other country.  Research shows that 75-90% of Doctor and ER visits are stress related.

It’s time for us to take control of our own health and wellness; and LISTEN TO OUR BODIES!  We can access our own inner pharmacy by giving our bodies enough sleep, healthy foods provided by nature, exercise, and positive, kind and loving thoughts.

According to Louise Hay, Ahlea Khadro and Heather Dane, in their book: Loving Yourself to Great Health: “If you experience a health challenge, life is inviting you to love yourself.”  We’ve all been at the mercy of our busy, stressful lives-and it’s greatly impacting our health and well-being.

Let’s put ourselves and our health first.  It’s not selfish-in fact, it’s quite the opposite.  We need to put the oxygen mask on ourselves before we can help others! We need to truly listen to and work with our bodies and practice what Suzanne Monroe calls: “absolute self care”. Combining restful sleep, proper nutrition , time in nature,stress relief and gentle exercise/mindfulness will nourish your mind,body, and spirit; and PROVIDE COMFORT AND RELIEF FROM CHRONIC PAIN.

I have Fibromyalgia, and I deeply empathize with and understand your challenges.  After receiving my diagnosis 15 years ago, I embarked on decade long journey of being a guinea pig and attempting to navigate the overwhelm of information and remedies: both medicinal and holistic.

Prescription meds were not for me, as I was highly sensitive. In pursuit of an alternative approach, I researched anything I could get my hands on; studied under the foremost Life Coaches, and became certified by the INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF WELLNESS PROFESSIONALS.

Fellow Fibro Warriors, I am here for you.  I believe in you and that you are worthy of healing.  I would have given anything to have an advocate and a guide to save me years of pain and struggle in trying to find an alternative to a band aid solution with painful side effects {worse than the initial pain}.

I would love to support you on your journey as I have with my many clients. Together we have uncovered the root cause of their pain; and discovered the solutions to move forward  from being stuck with no answers to their suffering-to taking control of and managing the pain; and experiencing improved health and wellness.

Sending gentle loving kind thoughts to all,

Barbara Sparhawk
