There can be a fine line, as you take actions to promote healing, between when those actions support healing and when they start to detract from it. If you’ve ever started to see a food as “bad” or become obsessed about what you can (or can’t) do, had emotions such as fear, shame, and guilt accompany your choices, or let your healing protocol interfere with relationships, you may recognize this line.
Health coach Angie Alt joins me this episode to talk about how to notice when the actions you take or your mindset about those actions is becoming unhealthy, and how to bring more balance back into your journey, ensuring that it truly is supporting you to heal.
What Angie and I talk about
- Signs that healing protocol is becoming unhealthy
- When healing becomes an obsession
- How the beginning of the healing journey changes once healing begins
- Creating a healthy relationship to your healing protocol from the beginning
- Taking the time to develop the right methods for you
- Honoring your individual healing timeline
- Asking questions about what to add and when
- Tips to finding a healthy balance in your healing protocol
“Your timeline is going to be way different than anybody else’s timeline. Even those of us with the exact same diagnosis and dealing with the same symptoms have totally different healing journeys.”
“The whole point of a healing protocol is to heal, not develop a burdened heart and mind.”
