Sheng Guanghui | Los Angeles, USA Severe Insomnia bothers life My name is Sheng Guanghui. I started to have severe insomnia in 2018. I couldn’t sleep even for a minute. It was very uncomfortable as it led to chest pain and tightness. I went to the emergency room every night because I couldn’t stand it. […]
I suffered from severe insomnia for 20 years. I divorced when I was 41 years old. After the divorce, I immigrated to the United States with my young daughter. At that time, I had to study at school during the day, do two jobs and take care of my daughter. So, I was exhausted, but couldn't sleep at night. I was nervous and irritable, had headaches and anxiety. My heart would suddenly beat very fast as if it was going to pop out, and sometimes it hurt. That pain was like being hit with an electric shock, which was very painful. Not only that, but when I combed my hair every morning, I found my hair fell out one by one, making me feel terrible.
When I was in my 40s, funding my three children’s college fees put me in a stressful state and led to the deterioration of my health. The heavy pressure of life caused insomnia for a long time. When I went to bed, I tossed and turned but couldn’t fall asleep. And then, I had to get up to go to the bathroom three or four times a night. As a result, I ended up sleeping for about two to three hours. It was tormenting.
When I was small, rheumatoid arthritis developed in my feet and legs because of cold and damp energy. Changes in weather aggravated the problem, and I suffered a lot of pain if I had to walk a long distance or climb stairs. I woke up one day to find my whole body was shaking. My overall condition worsened. Even if I was only a little tired, I would feel dizzy and could not even open my eyes. My concentration deteriorated. Sometimes, after a busy day, I would lose my voice.
I often need to go in and out of the freezer rooms and carry goods. I developed rheumatoid arthritis, as well as frozen shoulders with joint pain. My hands became swollen and painful, and my fingers were badly deformed. It was hard for me to open a bottle or pick up things, so I had to ask for help. I also couldn’t lift heavy items because of my weak hands. The pain was all over my body, which led to fatigue.
I had a kidney transplant in 2016. However, after the surgery, there was something wrong with my kidney. The report showed that the creatinine index reached 2.65 mg/dL (normal range: 0.7-1.5 mg/dL), which meant that the transplanted kidney had begun to fail. The doctor told me my kidney would last one to two years, and beyond that I would need to resume dialysis. His prognosis had me very worried.
Since I started to practice Energy Bagua, my sciatica and knee pain disappeared. Not only that, my patience and concentration improved, and my diet is healthier.
After about three months of practicing Energy Bagua, my hearing improved. When teaching my class, I could hear the students’ questions clearly. Also, after practicing Energy Bagua, I went from 205 pounds to 185 pounds. I lost 20 pounds and am so happy!
Ever since then, I have been practicing Energy Bagua about four times a week. I am pleasantly surprised that my leg muscles have strengthened. My right knee is no longer as sore and weak. In the winters of 2017 and 2018, I was able to go skiing with my children.
Since I recovered from acid reflux and improved my quality of sleep, I am full of energy. During working hours, I am energized. After work, I can cook meals for my family. I am filled with happiness and gratitude.
Three months into the practice, I felt calm and at peace. I was no longer pessimistic. My appetite also improved, and I could eat normally without episodes of diarrhea.
