    When I fell (while riding my son’s scooter without a helmet – whoops! Bad mommy!) and was still disoriented several weeks afterward, my MD, who is an alternative medicine practitioner, did a neuro assessment and determining I’d not had a concussion said, “You’ve dislodged your soul. I recommend some breath work, acupuncture and meditation. Maybe some gentle yoga if you wish.” He said this with a resident from Mt. Sinai in tow. He was serious. I left perplexed and thinking about his words. Over the coming weeks I took his advice and can tell you, it absolutely helped. It got me back into my body through awareness and presence. I will always remember this lesson and its profound impact on healing.

      Thanks for sharing. I love that, “You’ve dislodged your soul. I recommend some breath work, acupuncture and meditation.’ I’m doing the meditation a bit but not any breath work, light yoga, or acupuncture. What would you recommend for breath work? And what have you said to your acupuncturist when you go in for an appointment?
