Since about 12 years of age I’ve been battling some minor health demons, specifically (as embarrassing as it is to be specific about this), acne. I tried the conventional route – literally, I gave it a good go for 10 years or so – but the results from any medication or topical lotion that my doctor and dermatologist prescribed only gave temporary results. My skin would eventually retaliate with the relentless determination of a well-sunned tomato vine. Something in my approach to health needed to change, and the holistic route was quietly beckoning. When my appearance reached the point where I was canceling plans with friends a few hours in advance, experiencing gut-clenching anxiety over going in to work, and constantly piling on makeup for the slightest possibility that my photo might be taken, I finally decided to enlist some alternative help in determining the root cause of my skin’s baffling behaviour.
Today my skin is the clearest it’s been since first-year at Ryerson University, and it all began with a Naturopathic appointment. I’ve had the delight of working with many different practitioners over the course of my journey to wellness and even when establishing my own holistic therapy services for animals. Way back in 2013 you were promised posts about some of these holistic practitioners. Well, today marks the (beginning of) fulfillment of that promise, and we’re starting this series with the most recent addition to my healing super squad: Roxana Roshon.
Roxana Roshon: Naturotherapist
Usually, when I begin working with a new practitioner, it’s because I need to – because I’ve either been advised to do so, or it just feels like it’s the next step in my healing process. With Roxana, it was more out of curiosity that I booked our first appointment, but it only took one session for me to realize how invaluable her talents and skills are.
During that first session, I complained to Roxana about my insatiable appetite for fatty foods. (Even when it comes to almond butter, which is crazily nutritious, five tablespoons a day is enough to make my bum jiggle.) Roxana used BOS, a couple of crystals, some oracle cards, affirmations and even a bit of rattle-shaking to balance me out, and it was one of the most fun energy work appointments I’ve ever had! I went home feeling light and optimistic (totally normal for any energy session). But it wasn’t until I was at home, trying to decide what to make for dinner, that it hit me that popcorn swimming in butter or olive oil was no longer on the list of “Most-Desired”. The cravings for fat didn’t completely disappear that night, but they were so greatly diminished that ignoring them was a piece of cake. Or a head of lettuce. A stem of cauliflower, if you will. And the next day? The. Cravings. Were. Gone. After just one session!
Since then, I’ve had several sessions with Roxana, some in-person and some via distance, and they’ve all provided the same kind of relief as that first appointment. One time, we worked on a cough and sore throat that had been plaguing me for about two weeks and, again, after just one session my symptoms began to steadily improve until a few days later when they dissolved altogether. Most recently, Roxana helped me get to the bottom of my tendency to overeat (I’ve always been thin, but every once in a while I go through a period where I basically live with my head inside a cookie jar). She did some balancing with energy work and also alerted me to the fact that I was very wealthy in a past life (!) and used excessive weight to flaunt it (!!!). After this last session, it’s become easy for me to say no to food that I don’t actually want/need. Food that is healthy and that tickles my digestive system with glee has actually become so much more desirable than comfort or junk food, and determining appropriate portion sizes and sticking to them has been – no joke – effortless.
It’s already obvious, even with the few sessions we’ve had together, that Roxana is one of those rare practitioners of energy therapy who is able to quickly and efficiently get to the roots of physical issues and then clear them. And all whilst addressing the emotional, spiritual and mental aspects of each issue. Her sessions are always exciting, thought-provoking, and enlightening. On top of all that, she just has such a nice voice.
If you’ve tried energy work for things like stress, anxiety, anger, fear and pessimism, it’s time to take it a step further and use it to help combat addictions and allergies, lose some weight, and boost your immune system. And Roxana Roshon would be a great person to start exploring those possibilities with. Absolutely anyone would benefit from having Roxana as a regular on their healthcare team, and I cannot more highly recommend her and her services.
