About this blog (update December 2021)
History of this blog:
This blog began in 2006 as my own personal journey to beat fatigue (I thought it was due to sugar addiction). I joined a gym, started to exercise seriously and was trying various eating plans, read tonnes of books. So the beginning years of this blog, I wrote stuff I was experimenting with myself.
Then, I noticed loved ones, friends and colleagues around me suffering from various health problems- attributed largely due to being sedentary, food choices, trauma and stress. In 2007 and 2008, I lost a few people who are dear to me due to diabetes, stroke and cancer. It was sad, and when I read about others suffering the same fate, I felt I had to do something- so I shifted the focus from myself to research on using lifestyle change as complementary treatment for illness. I devoured tonnes of articles, books on health, took up an ACE certification for knowledge and want to share the information and findings.
In 2008, I quit my stressful job and traveled to Thailand for a year. Through allowing myself to quit the rat race for the first time, there were many life lessons that I’ve learned along the way.
Eventually, I started writing about mind body connection to illness (especially those that just could not be cured) after noticing that some illness are related to the person’s emotions, thoughts and seemed to manifest from a deeper issue.
In 2009, I took a paycut job which provided me more mental energy to focus on my blog as I need to see and test for myself if I could make a full time living as a blogger. I couldn’t- because it is strange …. but somehow I am not able to write if I do it solely driven by the money. The ‘flow’ and words just would not come out.
Eventually I went back to corporate life in September 2010 as I was quite broke from using up my savings and barely meeting ends meet with my paycut job. I went back to handle intranet and communication , something that I also love to do. My job got more and more demanding and I assumed more and more responsibilities till I had to cut down on my blogging for a few years.
In February 2017, my mom’s hepatitis turned acute, and she was hospitalized. Then she suffered a fall in April 2017. The day after her fall she was in so much pain- she asked me where I was going and I told her I am going to work (I had a friend who is staying to help but it is only a temporary solution). For the first time in my life, I saw fear in her eyes and the fact that she really needed me by her side. I made the decision then and then to tender my resignation that day and served about a month notice.
Just like in 2008-2009, leaving the corporate world again in 2017 enabled me to have the mental energy and time to resume writing on health related topics.
In July 2019, I have renamed this blog from ‘Health Blog’ to ‘Spiritual Health & Wellness Blog’ as I would be touching on more causes of illness aside from lifestyle and mind body connection which includes the unseen realm. In fact, I’ve been aware of this contributing cause for a long time but was a little reluctant to write about it. But as I am discovering members of the health profession including doctors and psychologists who are actually using treatments like exorcisms to treat their patients, I am more comfortable to write about these topics which you can view in this listing.
