I’m Back on the Blog!

Transcript of video:

Hello everyone!

I’m glad to be back here on the blog. I know it’s been a long time – since before the pandemic – and that’s because at first during the pandemic, I was confused! I didn’t know what to focus on. I ended up using the bulk of the pandemic to study and take advanced anatomy classes that I have been wanting to take for years. And then that led, over the course of the year, to me applying to nursing school, in order that I can do this work more deeply, and help all of you more. 

I’m a good chunk of the way through the initial part of the nursing program. All of this is headed toward being a family nurse practitioner. That gives me a lot more freedom to do a lot deeper work in this area, so I’m really excited. I’m also excited to be feeling some relief in my schedule so that I can be back here with you. 

Over the coming weeks you’re going to notice more blog posts. As always, my blog is my mailing list. So if you’re interested in hearing from me with content about how to care for adhesions, answers to questions that I get, all of that good stuff, I hope you’ll sign up to receive notifications from the blog (“subscribe” to the blog).

As always please do leave me comments. Let me know what your questions are, what you’re thinking about, what you’re working on, regardless of whether you’re in the Recover Program, the Getting Started Program, or are just thinking about this and learning about adhesions for the first time. Let me know what you’re thinking down in the comments.

All right, I will see you in our next blog post!

  1. Great to see you back! That is exciting news on your new studies.!
    I’d be curious to know if you have learned anything, observed anything about COVID and gut function. And possibly how vagal function might be involved in that.
    My digestion has been a disaster since likely having it in March 2020. It was after spending a lot of time proning to help with breathing that it was like something got really out of place, so i think adhesions made me susceptible, and probably SIBO, too.
    I have one of your video sets (can’t remember the name) but have never been able to really dive into it just due to being overwhelmed.i do now have a good osteopath to work on belly at least! But its been slow slow work.

  2. Thanks, Elizabeth! And, I’m really sorry to hear about that gut complication after Covid. I haven’t seen or heard anything related to that, but I will definitely keep my ear to the ground now that you’ve brought it up. Epidemiologically, we’re still in very early days with covid so I’m sure we’ll learn more about it and side effects the longer it’s around. I’m glad you found an osteopath to work on your belly! It is slow work … keep it up, though.
