I interviewed Courtney Runyon because her healing journey is so inspiring and that she identifies stress as being key to creating her illness, which is often overlooked.
The 35-year-old Texan overcame paralysis from the neck down and her autoimmune disease diagnosis of C.I.D.P – Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating polyneuropathy. She lost her home, her job, her boyfriend and her ability to shower and feed herself.
Courtney discusses the stress that she believes caused her condition and her journey back to choosing happiness, self love, health and walking the Camino de Santiago.
Courtney’s attitude around being paralysed: “I thought I could lose these years of my life or I could figure out how to love those years.”
This interview is full of gems from Courtney’s mouth!
“Nothing ever leaves you until it’s taught you what it is meant to teach you.”
“Love can heal.”
“I wouldn’t have reversed it (her illness) if I had negativity in my body, bad self-talk, being angry and sorry for myself. I knew all these things would keep me sick.”
“You fall in love with what you have or you fall apart.”
“I repeated 3 words to myself. I AM IN REMISSION.”
“A practitioner’s words become so important. They become an affirmation. Your words become their words.”
