We are approaching about 2 full weeks of my mother’s alternative therapies in Hawaii. My observations is that the path to healing is building an environment of love, happiness and positive thinking. As I talk to her about the practices to achieve inner piece and happiness by changing the way she relates to the disease and how she deals with pain and life’s adversities, I convince myself that healing is possible. She is sleeping every night and the chronicle pain has reduced by at least 50%. Mom has been doing daily meditations, eating very healthy and seeing Mr Stewart’s for healing thru self-love and joy, Jud for acupuncture practices and Sarah for Watsu.
