It Went Well

The global reach gets bigger all the time. Name a major city and we're there:

And the People's Republic of Brooklyn, NY!

Went to see the new therapist earlier today. It went really well. No more EMDR for now. We're trying a new approach that seems to be more reassuring.

For anyone possibly new here, many therapists use two basic routes in therapy. Cognitive or "talk" therapy. Also, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). It's a way to release trauma (trapped energy) from different parts of your body.

Which one is better? In our case, both helped for a while. Now though, we're trying Komaki therapy. It's a different and overall a more soothing approach.

Our suggestion? Talk to your therapist and decide which one is the most beneficial at the time. For us, cognitive only doesn't work. Also, every survivor is different (trauma, needs, symptoms and more).

Another tip for the day. Acidic foods can aggrevate your symptoms because they deplete the minerals and chi in your body. Another reason to be aware of what you do and how it affects you.
