healing comes as she works with dogs

healing comes as she works with dogsChronic pain is a part of this Irish TV star’s life, but healing comes as she works with dogs. And through her volunteer work, she has also helped dogs who are in desperate situations.

Andrea Hayes, presenter of “Dog Tales” on TV3 in Dublin, Ireland, has lived with debilitating back pain for 20 years, according to the Irish Mirror.

According to the Irish Mirror, Hayes has Chiari malformation 1, spinal stenosis and Pots (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.) Working with rescue dogs with the ISPCA and Dogs Trust, the newspaper said, “has had a ‘cathartic’ effect on her.”

Without daily medication and stints in the hospital every two weeks for pain relief, Hayes would not be able to function, the newspaper said. She told the Irish Mirror that she also gets “radio oblation injections which burn off a bit of the nerves in the back. If I didn’t get these treatments I wouldn’t be able to cope.” In 2016, Hayes’ book, “Pain Free Life: My Journey to Wellness,” was published. In it she tells how she developed “her own pain-control programme after years of chronic pain,” according to the newspaper. In the book she discusses how becoming a vegetarian, meditating, visualizing and having a positive mental outlook have helped heal her pain. Hayes, who is also a clinical hypnotherapist, has a new book called “Dog Tales.” In the book, “she explores the science behind animals and healing,” according to the Irish Mirror.

Dogs and Healing

Dogs have brought her tremendous healing, she said. “I still have all the conditions, but when I’m working with animals I go into this sacred place,” she said in the article.

“When you look into the eyes of a dog, oxytocin, known as the cuddle chemical, is released, and the same hormone is released when you give birth for the first time and look at your child.” she explained. Read More

finding a way to return to love

finding a way to return to loveFor a young couple in England, forever does not mean a limitless time. Day by day, they are finding a way to return to love.

In March, 2016, Jessica Sharman and Rich Bishop had been dating for seven months when their life together changed unexpectedly.

The couple was taking a train together from Kent to London, where they both worked at a recruitment office, according to mymodernmet.com and thesun.co.uk. As the train neared their stop, Sharman suffered several seizures – and lost her memory.

She did not know who she was. She did not know Bishop. And she was terrified, she told The Sun.

Looking for answers

Bishop helped Sharman walk to their office, where her mother met them. Sharman recalls that her mother was shocked that her daughter did not recognize her. The Sun stated that her mother, Lisa, a 49-year-old retail worker, “frantically” dug out pictures of her and her daughter on her phone to jog her daughter’s memory. “But not only did I not recognise my parents in the pictures . . . I had no idea what I looked like,” Sharman told The Sun.
