My question is for a close friend who has Raynaud’s Syndrome, where blood does not reach body extremities - fingers, toes, and in some cases a general weakening of muscles - including esophagus. [Ed. note: Cold and stress can exacerbate this condition.]
I was wondering if you had any suggestions in dealing with this with regards to guided imagery ?
I am 59. I have had a migraine since I was in my mid-twenties (poetic license!). Seventeen years ago I was diagnosed with the prelude to what has now evolved into Lupus. I have had this condition for 5 years - suffering stuff that I wrongly attributed to God knows what - until a major flare-up this year resulted in the diagnosis.
This year I have had one flare-up after another. I control one with steroids - get over it - another comes. I have been working with all kinds of techniques/therapies on my own (have a background in psychology) and then I hit the jackpot: relaxation, emotional protection, visualization.
