Chronic pain is a debilitating symptom that affects our mind, body, and inner well-being and often leads to the prescription of opioids which are powerful pain-reducing medications that include oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, and many more. Unfortunately, once on prescribed pain medication, your body becomes immune to the effects and it will require a higher dose over time to receive the same benefit.
This can lead to people exposing themselves to synthetic opioids such as heroin, or synthetic opioids like fentanyl, and according to the CDC, from 1999 to 2018, more than 232,000 people died in the United States from overdoses involving prescription opioids, however, there were still almost 58 opioid prescriptions written for every 100 Americans.
With pharmaceuticals can also come side effects. Gut issues, kidney damage, liver damage, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, and addiction. What if instead of pharmaceuticals, you could heal your pain naturally by getting to the root cause of the trauma?
In my upcoming TedX Talk entitled Your Body Is Smarter Than You Think. Why Aren’t You Listening?, I discuss one of the most important systems of our body that has the ability to heal yet has been overlooked for centuries. The fascia.
Connective tissue below the skin which surrounds all our organs and muscles from head to toe, the fascia is an intricate web of tissue that has its own nervous and electrical components which create instant communication throughout our body. However, throughout history, fascia was seen as ‘irrelevant’ when it came to medical study and THIS is what has got to change if we are truly wanting to embrace the mind, the body, and awareness in our healing journey.
Our bodies are truly much smarter than we think and the symptoms we experience are our body’s way of communicating but many of us do not know how to LISTEN.
Symptoms such as chronic pain can leave you feeling betrayed by your body causing feelings of hopelessness, fear, doubt, and anxiety. Your body is not your enemy! If we learn how to LISTEN to the body’s cries for help, we can get to the root cause of the symptoms and discover how to REBOOT our system for optimal health.
We are not broken. We merely have our wires crossed and it is time to take back our health through informed consent by understanding our body’s language. In my program Your Body Mind Reboot, I show you how to take charge of your health journey through my LISTEN principles and hands-on REBOOT training. Healing is a continuous journey and to take the first steps towards optimal health, I recommend discovering your Health Archetype in order to understand how your choices, thoughts, and your actions affect your individual health.
Remember, you can be the healer in your household!
Go beyond pain, relieve stress, and go from dis-ease to health. The journey begins with you!
