Diana Finds Hope In Her ALS Community

My name is Diana Blagdon and in October of 2016 after 18 months of trying to figure out “what was wrong with Diana” I was diagnosed with ALS Bulbar onset. The 18 months getting to the diagnosis was frustrating and emotionally pretty painful. For the last 6 years I have been the owner operator of StarGazers a New Age Metaphysical Shop in Door County, Wisconsin. So after taking it in and taking adeep breath I realized that I now had an opportunity to WALK my TALK.

First order of business was to begin the healing process. So in late October, I left my shop in the capable hands of my assistant and began. I Googled people who have healed from ALS and found a website with stories of individuals who had figured out how to manage and/or eliminate symptoms (and they called it healing). Now I had a basis for understanding, managing and healing my symptoms outside the Western medicine model. 

I go back to one of these stories at least weekly and read how and what those who have gone before me have done. Next I found several Facebook communities and organizations whose focus is ALS. Most recently I found ALS Worldwide. What a blessing! I was pleasantly surprised that Barbara contacted us immediately after I completed and submitted my online profile and a Skype conversation was set up for my husband and I. We got great information that we can use from a live person. We now have an invaluable resource we can turn to whenever we feel the need. 

I know that we are just beginning the journey and I continue to learn and grow daily. I am encouraged by the initial response I am experiencing from the healing protocol that I have implemented. I focus daily on feeding my body, mind and spirit and trust that God will provide me with the perfect information and opportunities as I walk my talk one day at a time. 

I can’t wait to get to know each of you in this wonderful community. Sending you all blessings of Light and Love. Namaste—the God in me greets the God in you.
