In this Episode of Love your Diagnosis, I talk with Gael about her diagnosis of Trigeminal/Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia
Gael's symptoms began around 2014. On a daily basis, Gael would get severe razor like spasms under the left side of her tongue which would sometimes last for weeks or months and then short periods of no symptoms. At this stage she didn't feel the need to seek medical advice. As you'll hear, she is quite a stoic, determined lady.
After seeing a neurologist and discussing that his treatment to assist her was going to be resolved by taking nerve blockers that are usually given to people with epilepsy or cranial surgery, she decided to walk away and seek help from an Integrative Health Doctor.
Together they came up with the fix using vitamin, mineral, herbal, and meditation healing treatments. Gael has been symptom free for about 18 months now.

You can get my book here which is a raw and honest dialogue of how I went from completely using allopathic medicine to manage a diagnosis of epilepsy, to only using a small amount of medicine and managing the rest with lifestyle choices and other wonderful plant medicines and supplements
Also you can sign up to my quarterly newsletter below where tips and resources will be shared for you to feel into and decide if they are right for you. Knowledge is power.
A little side note:
These shows are meant to create food for thought for people going through similar situations. Planting seeds of information about things that perhaps you never knew could and might assist in treating and managing the symptoms associated with your diagnosis.
Alternative treatments are out there to be used, alongside alopathic medicine, or instead of.
That part is completely up to you, but gaining knowledge is the first part in empowering yourself back to health.
I really hope you get some good ol' nuggets of info from these interviews so you can go and start researching yourself and perhaps even start experimenting on the treatment that feels right for you!
