Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over...
it became a butterfly!

Greetings & Notes from KIM EVANS - AUGUST 2016
     
Welcome to August!  Is it really August already?  Time to think about the kids returning to school?  I don't know about you, but it feels like only yesterday that they just got out for the summer!  Wow!  Time is passing quickly!

Our theme this month is:  " Just when the caterpillar thought that life was over...it changed into a butterfly!"  What a powerful image.  How many of us have had rough times in our life - our dark night of the soul?  It's part of the human experience.  Yet when we persevered, stayed positive, and trusted that all would turn out ok, it did!  It reminds me of my favorite quote from the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel that states "everything will be all right in the end... if it's not all right then it's not yet the end!"  As long as you are breathing then it is not yet the end of your human experience.  And thus remains the potential to transcend any circumstance, situation or difficulty and transform it into something powerful, wonderful and beneficial.

Mark your calendars now for September 17th.  I'll be presenting " Take Charge of Your Health and Wellbeing:  Be Your Own Advocate" at the Be Well Naturally Seminar.  Check out the details in the " Save the Date" section of this newsletter.

Cynthia Bowling is our Practitioner of the Month.  Her work with AIT (Advanced Integrative Medicine) is a powerful process to shift our "dark night of the soul" to a total transformation.  If you are experiencing any problems or difficulties in your life, think about having a session with Cynthia!  Transform from that chrysalis to the beautiful butterfly that you are!    



Love,
Kim Evans

IIM HEALTH TIP OF THE MONTH ~ AUGUST * 2016


Health Tip:


Welcome to August! 
Our theme this month is .......

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over... it turned into a butterfly!
I can so relate to this quote!!  In my early 30's I was living in St. Louis and had completed my Master's Degree, had two small children and was working as a Critical Care Nurse Specialist.  After several years of trying to make my marriage work, I went through a painful, intense divorce.  I decided to give up my job, move back to Louisville and start all over.  On that icy, cold night driving across I-64 with my two children, I felt like that caterpillar and that life was over as I knew it.  I crawled into that cocoon of pain, confusion and disappointment.  Through many years of soul searching, listening to my inner calling, Spiritual Direction and unraveling false expectations, I emerged from that chrysalis a butterfly.

Today I'm here with my colleague Cynthia who is going to share more about unraveling the chrysalis so transformation is not only possible, but inevitable!

Cynthia:   The image of a butterfly became quite significant during my AIT (Advanced Integrative Therapy) training.  We had a place in Mississippi that was completely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.  We still had a structure, which was more than some whose homes were completely demolished, but we had a lot of damage.  I knew that I wanted to plant flowers to bring some life and beauty to the devastated area.  I didn't realize at the time that the plant that I chose was a favorite among monarch butterflies.  When I returned several months later, I found that caterpillars had eaten all the leaves and now there were hundreds of chrysalises hanging from everywhere!  We literally got to watch many butterflies emerge.  It was transformative.  It is also a beautiful metaphor for AIT.  I have witnessed this therapy help people transcend pain, trauma and hardships and emerge into a fulfilling, contented, powerful life.

Kim:   We all face circumstances that seem to force us into the cocoon or dark night of the soul.  Yet if you are patient, willing and have the courage to reach out for the help you need, there is a beautiful butterfly awaiting!  So if you need help, give us a call!   ~  Kim Evans

Additional Health Tip!

Beta-blockers & Heart rate...
Many people take a beta-blocker to help lower their blood pressure or to lower the workload of the heart after a heart attack.  Examples of Beta-blockers include:
*Acebutolol (Sectral)   *Atenolol (Tenormin)   *Bisoprolol (Zebeta)
*Metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol-X)   *Nadolol (Corgard)  
*Nebivolol (Bystolic)   *Propranolol (Inderal LA, InnoPran XL)

*Betaxolol (Kerlone)   *Carteolol (Cartrol)   *Esmolol (Brevibloc)
*Penbutolol (Levatol)   * Pindolol (Visken)   *Timolol (Blocadren)   
*Sotalol (Betapace)


These can be helpful and effective medications.  One possible side effect is lowering your heart rate too low.  It's important to know how to take your pulse if you are on one of these medications.  The easiest pulse to feel is the carotid artery, which is located on either side of your neck.  Use your index finger beginning at your ear lobe and move your finger half way down your neck.  Place your middle and ring finger next to your index finger on your neck (toward your throat) and feel for your pulse.  Count your pulse for 15 seconds, and then multiply this number by 4 to get your heart rate per minute.  If your heart rate drops below 50 beats per minute, contact your doctor before taking an additional dose of your beta-blocker medication.
(Hint:  When checking your carotid pulse, never press on both sides of your neck at the same time!)

Just a reminder:  our quarterly Vasolab opportunity is coming up on Wednesday, August 17th!
This is a simple, gentle, and quick way to check the carotid artery... letting you know your risk of stroke and heart attack.  Please call our office now to schedule your 15 minute appointment for August 17th!


Here's to your health!

Meet Cynthia Bowling...

Cynthia Bowling is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 40 years experience as a therapist working with adults, children, adolescents, families and couples.  She is the only therapist in Kentucky who is a Certified Practitioner in Advanced Integrative Therapy, developed by Asha Clinton, Ph.D.  She is also a certified AIT Teacher.

Advanced Integrative Therapy or AIT, is a gentle and effective healing treatment for many types of psychological, physical, and spiritual distresses and illnesses.  It treats not just the symptoms but the originating causes of present day difficulties.  By treating the cause, symptoms, and the connection between them, AIT lastingly removes suffering.

AIT integrates the best established and proven psychotherapies, and then adds a new energy psychology element that is body-based.  This simply and gently addresses and clears those aspects of the issue in the body, mind, and spirit.  In this way the issue, or "trauma" gets completely resolved! ... producing lasting transformation.

The basic cause of human suffering is trauma... any occurence which when it is happening, when we think back to it, or when it is triggered by some present event, evokes painful emotions and/or physical symptoms, sensations, or illnesses.  (This can give rise to distresses such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, obsessions, addictions...) Because people don't fully heal from a traumatic incident in their past, something that happens in the present can trigger an adverse reaction if it is similar in some way to the trauma... Trauma fractures human wholeness.
AIT energetically treats the earliest relevant trauma, the present symptom or suffering, and the connection between the past trauma and the present difficulty - AND THE SUFFERING STOPS.

I'VE GOT YOUR BACK ~ AUGUST * 2016
 I've Got Your Back ~ August * 2016

This month I've got a powerful "I've Got Your Back" story to share. 
One of my patients suggested that her husband, Bob, schedule an appointment for help with high blood pressure control and nutritional guidance for a healthier diet.  His original appointment was not until early August, but the angels have a way of opening my schedule when someone really needs to get in.  Bob was able to come in the middle of July.  When I took his vital signs, I noticed that his heart rate was very slow.  He had no energy and was feeling poorly.  I did an ECG and found his heart rate to be about 40. (The normal heart rate is 60-100).  He is taking a beta-blocker which lowers your blood pressure AND your heart rate, but this was clearly too low of a heart rate.  Additionally, despite such a low heart rate, his blood pressure was still elevated at 170/80.  I gave him a copy of his ECG to take to his physician's office the next morning to see about changing medications.

Bob is a car salesman for Toyota.  I had spoken to him a couple years ago about finding a car for us when Dave and I were ready to replace our aging vehicles.  As I was ending his appointment, he asked if we were still in the market for replacing one of our vehicles.  I told him that in fact we were looking for a 2011 Toyota Avalon.  He said he just happened to get that exact car into his dealership a couple days before!

Three days later, Dave and I went to meet Bob and see the Avalon that they had for sale.  It was exactly what we had been looking for!  While we were there, Bob said he still wasn't feeling well.  I checked his pulse, which was normal, but he was nauseated, diaphoretic and feeling poorly.  Bob told me that when his physician had changed his medication, she abruptly stopped his beta-blocker even though he had been on it for many years.  Knowing that it is common to prescribe both his new blood pressure medicine and a beta-blocker together, I suggested that he resume his beta-blocker at half the original dose until he could contact his physician.  On the following Monday, he was able to schedule an appointment with another physician who adjusted his medications.  Bob has made changes in his diet and stopped drinking soft drinks.  He is feeling much better.  What added to the Divine Synchronicity of this story is the fact that Dave and I had investigated two other Avalons that we were supposed to look at, but ironically they never came through due to circumstances beyond our control.  (Tricky angels!) 


Now Bob's blood pressure and heart rate are normal.  He is feeling better, making healthier nutritional choices, and Dave and I have a new car!
Glad you're feeling better, Bob!
