So I just completed the Progressive Workshop in Tampa, and had a wonderful AHA moment. Dr. Joe talked about how an intensively emotional event can overwrite programming from the past. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis over 25 years ago, and according to bone scans, it has been getting steadily worse. When I was first diagnosed, my doctor wanted me to go on Fosamax, but I don't like meds, so I declined. About 10 years later I was thrown from a horse and landed flat on my back on a rocky dirt road. No broken bones! I think this convinced me emotionally that I either didn't have osteoporosis, or that it was osteoporosis was different from what doctors thought it was, or that I had it and just wasn't susceptible to it, whatever. I never took it seriously after that. However, a few years ago I decided to see if I could reverse the bone scans. I started working out pretty seriously, and was able to stop the progression of decreasing bone density according to the scans, but not to improve bone density. I have been doing meditation for the past few months while continuing to work out, and have a scan due in May. I'm expecting to see an improvement of bone density on that--will keep you posted.
