This is the first of a string of posts around pain I will be posting.
You may have been told you have no option, you may feel you have tried everything - there are still possibilities...
In 2011 the Institute of Medicine recommended that successful chronic pain treatment strategies address the whole patient: the symptoms, emotional state, belief systems, expectations and responses of others to the patient’s pain condition. (ref: Institute of Medicine report from the Committee n Advancing Pain research, Care and Education: relieving pain in America: A blueprint for transforming prevention, care, education and research. Washington, DC: National Academies Press 2011)
Limitations of the conventional healthcare system to effectively treat pain have motivated chronic pain sufferers to explore complementary and alternative medicine approaches.
Pain that persists is often due to the sensitivity of the nervous system. Factors that make the nervous system more sensitive are posture, cultural, environmental, biological, and psychological as well as diet and stress levels.
We have techniques and ways to balance or remove emotions, beliefs and thoughts that are causing havoc. Our nervous system becomes calmer and less reactive, even when we are faced with similar situations and people that have triggered us in the past. The techniques enable us to bring about change in our lives and in our relationships.
You will discover snippets from your past - worries, traumas, accidents etc (not only the things that happened to you, but also to others around you at the time) that have contributed to your pain.
This recognition of the connections and the deeper emotions and beliefs are a large key to you moving quickly forward through your healing journey.
When we look at the BIG picture of your life and the things in and around it, as well as balancing all the factors in the specific order for YOUR healing is key to fast tracking and long lasting healing.
