When was the last time you asked your body what it wanted? When you've got chronic pain, it's a good question....but it's not usually one we think of asking! Pain management centers don't suggest it. Western medicine doesn't ask. Only those of us who practice so-called alternative medicine think it's important. Ask. You might be surprised at what you hear as the response!
If you're not a member of my private Facebook group Plan B For Pain, I'd love to have you come join us!
When you go to an acupuncturist, do you need an herbal formula? That depends......Eastern medicine incorporates both - kind of like western medicine includes both drugs and surgery. So-called "alternative medicine" emphasizes treating the patient who has the condition, rather than just the symptoms. Oh yes - we treat symptoms too, but we get below the surface and treat the causes of the diagnosis. Want to know more? Visit my website at Mission Valley Acupuncture
And if you've got chronic pain, I'd love to have you join my private Facebook group called Plan B For Pain.
When you have chronic pain, developing a sense of self-compassion is critical. It lessens the suffering that goes along with the pain, as well as the feelings of isolation. This simple meditation technique is very practical and can be done anywhere, any time.
I'd love to have you join my private Facebook group - not surprisingly called Plan B For Pain! There's inspiration, laughter, tips and tricks - and a supportive community!
Chronic pain affects us on a physical, mental and emotional level. The most effective pain management is to address all these levels at once - not piecemeal with multiple drugs aimed at each part.
And if you're wanting a supportive community, where we actually find plenty to laugh about (laughter IS the best medicine!), as well as tips and tricks, then why not join my private Facebook group: Plan B For Pain
