Natural Energy Balancing (NEB) therapy is used to identify and clear energetic imbalances and sensitivities in your body. It highlights the root cause/s of your health issues and restores balance. NEB has been a huge part of my healing journey and I have been very fortunate to meet Nici Verriest through a friend and have her help to heal my body. You can find out more about her journey at http://www.naturalenergybalancing.com.au
NEB uses muscle testing to determine imbalances in food, emotions, body organs, etc. It has always corresponded with my blood tests. Each treatment uses massage on particular acupressure points on your body, whilst you hold a vial with the energy of the suspected substance in your hand. It sounds kind of weird but it actually works.
At the beginning of my journey, in April 2015, Nici got to the root cause of my hair loss. She found there were multiple reasons and not just one. These included: environmental toxins, previous infections, long term stress, poor diet, lack of sleep and not looking after myself. All of these issues set up many imbalances in my body, especially from lack of many vitamins and minerals due to gut issues causing inability to absorb them from my food. This became the perfect storm leading to my hair loss.
At my first visit, Nici advised me to eliminate gluten and dairy from my diet, as wheat was causing more inflammation in my already inflamed body and both gluten and dairy were both irritating and damaging to my gut. Nici also told me that, yes, I would grow my hair back but I needed to rebalance my body first for that to happen. This meant healing my leaky gut. I also had adrenal fatigue, have the MTHFR gene and autoimmune diseases run in my family.
Each week (sometimes even twice a week) I would see Nici for a treatment. At the start, I would ask Nici to include the “Alopecia” vial in the treatment, but she needed to first get my body to absorb many vitamins and minerals first before she put in the Alopecia vial. It’s like jumping the queue… you need to fix a,b and c before you get to d. Patience is been something I’m still working on, but it’s definitely improved!.
Nici has taught me that “food is medicine” and showed me the importance of eating lots of vegetables. She has taught me to eat a mostly alkaline diet, which is eating mostly vegetables and some fruit with small portions of meat, chicken and fish and other proteins. Eating alkaline keeps away the inflammation. I’ve also eliminated all processed foods, sugar and alcohol from my diet for over 12 months now and feel amazing. I now eat a “rainbow” of vegetables every day to keep my body in balance, not just because I have to, but I really enjoy my new way of eating.
It’s been 19 months since my first visit, I stopped seeing Nici a few months ago as I am healed. My body is finally reaching a state of balance and my hair is growing back nicely. Initially I didn’t think it would take so long, but it just showed me how many years of damage I had to undo in my stressed out body.
For those of you who are new on this journey wanting to get your hair back, yes, going gluten and dairy free (or the AIP diet) is a great start but having someone get to the root cause of my hair loss, including emotions and lifestyle, is just as important. Nici has helped my body to restore balance and I get all my nutritional needs from my diet, so I do not need many supplements.
I remember visiting Nici last year with a whole bag of supplements and having her muscle test me for what I needed to be taking. I had so many supplements, as everyone I saw recommended I take a new vitamin and I had no idea what my body really needed. Nici couldn’t believe how much money I had spent on all these supplements, that I didn’t actually need. The only supplements I take now are a probiotic and turmeric (if I can’t buy it fresh) and Chinese herbs daily from my acupuncturist.
Nici has become a lifelong friend and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her love and support.
