One of the reasons I chose a natural approach to recovering my health, rather than taking medication, was to see what I could learn from trying different techniques and approaches to healing. It has paid dividends because I’ve learned a great deal!
For instance, I learned a couple of years ago that when I bounce a ball while I’m walking, I tend not to shuffle walk so much. I also learned that when I toss a ball back and forth from one hand to the other while standing, my balance is fine. Similarly, when I practice Qigong, my balance is fine.
Today I learned something new again! When I gently rock back and forth, shifting my weight from my left foot to my right and so on while standing in one spot, my balance was fine. Even a slight rocking seemed to work well. This is awesome, as it will help me enormously at karate where I have to stand a lot watching students perform their techniques [and where tossing a ball back and forth isn’t exactly practical]. It will also help me when I’m standing having a conversation with someone or standing in line at the bank, which I quite often find challenging.
It’s ‘AHA’ moments like these that make experiencing a neurological condition kind of an adventure and not so scary! It helps me deal with it in a more constructive manner!
Have an awesomely rocking day!
