During my very long struggle with chronic pain, I looked to every doctor, therapist, healer, book, magazine, video, exercise, workout, podcast, website, as well as the advice of friends and family to find a cure for my ceaseless pain. Many people follow a similar logic, as they attempt to cure their chronic pain, because they believe, as I did, that the answers will come from an External source. Someone else with the knowledge to solve the problem.
The treatment and advice I received from these External sources was sometimes helpful for short periods of time, but the pain would return, and that would prompt me to move on to the next possibility.
A little more than a year ago I came to the realization that there was no External source that was ever going to heal me from this ongoing pain. The pain was created Internally, and could only be resolved by the Internal source, me.
There was a 2006 horror movie called 'When a Stranger Calls', maybe you remember it? There is an often referenced moment from that film, when the babysitter, who is being harassed by phone calls, comes to the realization that the calls are coming from 'inside the house'!
I had my own 'inside the house' moment when it became clear to me that the pain that continued year after year was coming from me, from my own unchecked and subconscious negative emotions. That is why the muscles in my back appeared to NEVER heal, because it was continually under stress from the tension that was being dumped there. How can a soft tissue injury go on for years and years? It generally doesn't, it heals, but there is a something that continues to injure it over and over again.
There is only one kind of body that isn't in a constant state of renewal, and that body belongs to someone who is no longer alive. If you're reading this, you are alive and your body is in a constant state of rebuilding itself.
My method for healing chronic pain addresses the two Internal parts of this problem, the physical tension, and the negative emotions that continue to cause the ongoing injury.
Hopefully, you will be able to try my method at some point, and find the same wonderful and surprising results that I found.
Keep trying, don't quit, and keep your positive and hopeful spirit!
After trying every conventional therapy for crippling, chronic low-back pain, I discovered the problem was completely within my control. I experienced an amazing health transformation in a matter of weeks. Mind-Body medicine worked for me, and it can for can too!
