Hope for the Entire Family
Feb 04, 2018
From our friend Amber...
As I get ready to drive home from Pressing RESET-Indiana this morning, I just wanted to share my story with you.
Three months ago I asked the orthotics maker if it was time for a wheelchair. I tried orthotics for an entire year but my knees kept hurting so badly, I could barely walk.
Three years ago I got plantar fasciitis so bad I could hardly hold my body up. I kept going to doctors and was told surgery was the only answer. One podiatrist told me I would likely lose my feet. After hearing that, I couldn’t get myself out of fight or flight. I was never in rest and digest and my muscles just started shutting down.
As a diabetic for 40 years, I knew surgery wasn’t the answer. I kept trying traditional PT but didn’t get better at all. I’m a mom of two beautiful girls and knew that they needed a mama and I had to keep fighting to find the answer. I couldn’t give up!
About three months ago, a kind and gentle massage therapist taught me about Neurokinetic therapy. It started teaching my cerebellum to use the right muscles. I started getting better, but not completely. I couldn’t figure out what was missing.
Then on Facebook I saw something about Original Strength’s RESETS. My family and I have been doing it for the past three weeks and are seeing amazing results. It’s crazy when I get out of bed in the morning and my stomach hurts, my chest hurts, not in a bad way, but in a way that says I’m alive and strong!
The combination of Neurokinetic therapy and the OS RESETS has given me my life back. It’s giving me hope and I can’t wait to see what the future holds! Yesterday, I was 90% pain free!
It has been a crazy long and painful journey. For someone who comes from a thick trauma history, I never understood why God was allowing me to go through this journey.
But yesterday when we talked about all the vestibular issues and the neural connections through movement and how it can help your brain, I know exactly why He has let me go through this.
My youngest little girl was born three months early. She now struggles with stability and toe grasping which cause sores under her toes. We have tried physical therapy and nothing worked.
She also has a learning disability and some attention issues. As a family, we all now do RESETS every day. We are starting to see amazing results in my daughter’s attention span, her ability at school, her strength, and her overall self-esteem.
I know that I had to endure the past three years of pain to help my little girl. What I learned through Original Strength has been amazing and will be a huge key to our family’s health in the future.
I know God brought your Facebook page up and somehow I just knew to like it. I just knew I had to be in Indiana at the workshop this weekend. We’re trying to figure out if I can come to the Pro RESET Workshop in March. I would love to come!
Thanks again for allowing God to use your story to make a difference in our lives!
