Of course, I am still training for the Kauai marathon (Sept. 6) and have had some great runs. It has been so hot, but those quick, cool, tropical rain showers are heaven sent! I am hoping and praying it rains on marathon day!
A few weeks ago, I was helping my friend Jackie move house. I mentioned to her some things that have been bothering me, physically. I'll give you the back history. Since moving to Kauai, I have been struggling with depression, I know, how is that possible in such a beautiful place, but it is true. I have gained weight and I have also been extra sweaty, I just chalked it up to the humidity, but I would continue to sweat for a while after my runs. It has been crazy! I expressed to Jackie how frustrated I have been and she said, "We can fix that." I was intrigued, yet skeptical.
Jackie is an RN and specializes in NeuroModular Technique (NMT). I had never heard of this before. Her description was "It's like defragging your hard-drive." So, we set up an appointment. Now, you have to know, I am queen of the skeptics! But I wanted to see what it was all about. What did I have to lose?
Night and day difference! I feel so much better, it is like the weight of the world is off my shoulders. I don't feel sad anymore, I have actually lost a few pounds and my sweating...back to normal! Honestly, I don't know how it works, but it worked for me! I have been to three sessions now. Each time I go, I have a list of things to "fix." On our last visit, I asked about my bowel issues during long runs, she said we could fix that too. I ran 15 miles on Saturday...no problems, not one cramp! It was fantastic! I don't know how it works, but it does!
