Mother Nature has a way of not only healing itself but wildlife, sea animals, and humans. We're not meant to run after life's material possessions because as we seek more, it's human nature to desire more. These desires are designed to keep you off balance. This imbalance is due to the high demands placed on your life. As a result of stress, you begin to worry excessively, exhibit poor eating habits, show signs of a lack of sleep, and begin to display symptoms of various diseases and illnesses. Hear what author Hannah Powell shares with the reader in her book, The Cactus Surgeon: Using Nature to Fix A Faulty Brain. She fell into the same trap that many of us do by working in a high-level career which resulted in being burned out. Her body began to break down, which resulted in her later being diagnosed with functional neurological disorder (FND). As she began seeking ways to heal, she realized that the answer to balance was getting in touch with nature, something that had been a part of her life since childhood. This is her story.
The Cactus Surgeon: Using Nature to Fix A Faulty Brain by Hannah Powell is a beautiful story of discovery, relief, and change. As Hannah walks through the several facets of her life in telling her story, she also shares personal parts of herself with childhood, family, and nature photos. You will see several photos of nature from a woodpecker, blossoms, Echinops, snowdrops, sunflowers, and sweetpeas to a jellyfish. By getting back in touch with nature, gardening, and relocating to a calm location along with physiotherapy, acupuncture, and other alternative medical options, Hannah not only was able to heal but got married and raised a family. If you're seeking a way to get off the hamster wheel and get balanced before a life-defining moment changes the course of your life, get a copy of this book to help you along your journey. Enjoy!
