I had horrible morning sickness with my second child.
Awful. From morning until night.
I didn’t want to eat, and I certainly didn’t want to prepare food for miss 3.
I was wary (and to be honest, as a new naturopath, overly cautious) of herbal medicine in this first trimester, and there was no way that you could have given me a dietary plan. I couldn’t even hold down toast.
I was recommended to see an acupuncturist, and, after a bit of ‘soldiering on’, I took my sorry self off to see them.
I absolutely kid you not, one treatment with Tabitha and Brad and I was feeling better.
I could have cried with relief (I actually did that evening in the privacy of my own home).
Being a naturopath, I reach for my own modality to treat my family and clients, but never hesitate to refer and to collaborate with other practitioners to get the results you (we) deserve.
That little munchkin that was making me so sick, is now seven years old and I am so thankful for the experience (the acupuncture, not the actual sickness so much), for opening my eyes to the concept of ‘handing it over’.
It was sweet relief to walk into that clinic and hand it over.
I have learnt to hand a lot more over these days.
When we are expending valuable energy, and time, in areas that aren’t our expertise, it feel wrong, it feels hard, whereas, that sweet relief when we let go, let others help us, feels so good.
What could you ‘hand over’ today?

Btw, if you are on the gold coast and looking to hand it over to an acupuncturist, then please, do yourself a favour and contact Tabitha and Brad at Studio Qi, in Burleigh Heads.
