YOGA & NUTRITION
When Australian Neurologists finally discovered that Martha Christie was suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, it was after five years of misdiagnosis in Europe, where Martha had been working as a well known model. At that stage she was unable to walk and became partially blind having lost effective function on one side of her body. The relentless pain and frustration had left her deeply depressed and then, the toxic 'super drugs' with which doctors tried to bring her disease under some sort of control had severe side effects that brought a whole new raft of problems.
"I was disconnected spiritually, socially and physically", Martha recalls.
"I had no tools to work with and the medical system didn't seem to be interested in identifying the cause of the imbalance that led to my disease. Having contacted the MS charities on both sides of the globe, I felt even more alone and disempowered. I felt ill-equipped, uninformed and unsupported".
But, Martha's diagnosis gave her a starting point and a fierce determination to reconnect and heal naturally. Soon after, she was on the road to recovery. Today, Martha is a Yoga Instructor, Meditation Guide and has studied Nutritional Medicine.
"I want to share my story so that everyone - diseased or not - can improve and overcome suffering".
"We live in a society where we are becoming more connected with external influences and less connected with ourselves. I passionately believe that you can take back control, empower yourself and connect with your true nature and purpose in life".
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
Martha has now broken over thirteen years of silence to reveal how she has created 'the protocol' that enabled her to overcome Multiple Sclerosis and live a drug-free, healthy life.
LIFESTYLE, YOGA, MEDITATION
Martha recognised the need to look after her nutritional needs, supplement requirements and the importance of a daily practice of Yoga and meditation.
Her study of Nutritional Medicine and personal research - and her training as a Yoga instructor allowed her to heal and start living a balanced, healthy and fulfilling life.
As well as a daily practice of Yoga and meditation, Martha's protocol includes an organic, whole food, plant based diet that is dairy free, refined sugar free and gluten free.
Low saturated fats and foods rich in Omega-3 feature in her protocol as well as high dose supplements of Vitamins D, C and Zinc.
