Former Miss Universe and Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen recently revealed that ‘meditating with nunchaku’ helped her heal after she was diagnosed with Addison’s disease in 2014. In a video shared on her official YouTube channel, Sushmita is seen performing various moves with nunchaku or chainsticks.
The actor-model posted the video along with a note that gave an insight into her healing journey. Sushmita shared how ‘meditating with nunchaku’ helped her overcome the “dark times” that lasted four years.
It read, “After I was diagnosed with an Auto immune condition called Addison’s disease in September 2014, it left me feeling like, I had no fight left in me…A fatigued body filled with immense frustration & aggression. The dark circles under my eyes can’t even begin to explain the dark times I endured for 4 long years :) To have steroids substitute cortisol & to live with its innumerable side effects took its toll. There is NOTHING more tiring than to live with a chronic illness. Enough was enough, I had to find a way of strengthening my mind, allowing my body to follow suit. I meditated with #Nunchaku :)) Aggression out, fight back in & pain turned into an art form :) I healed in time, my Adrenal glands woke up, no more steroids, no withdrawls & NO AUTO IMMUNE CONDITION as of 2019. :)) Lesson : NO ONE KNOWS YOUR BODY BETTER THAN YOU, LISTEN TO IT. :) There is a warrior in all of us, never give up!!! Thank you to my Teacher Nupur Shikhare for being my rock through this journey :) I love you guys!!!”
