CHRONIC PAIN GO AWAY
In this video, I share five critical guidelines developed from over 20 years of observing clients with chronic pain. If you’re grappling with persistent health issues and traditional treatments have fallen short, these insights could be pivotal. Through observing why some individuals recover while others don’t, I’ve identified overlooked factors crucial for healing from chronic pain and illness that go beyond conventional medical wisdom.
In this three-part series on chronic pain, I’ll show you how to tune your nervous system to get lasting relief. To begin, I will illustrate how the updated neuroscience explains how chronic pain and illness manifest, what works to bring you back to health, and how the traditional scientific view of our nervous system gets in the way of healing.
Part 2 of my chronic pain series delves into tangible self-care practices rooted in neuroscience, using Wim Hof’s cold exposure technique as a model. We discuss how gradually expanding our comfort zones, aligning actions with core beliefs, and attuning to bodily signals can help manage chronic pain. This approach underlines the importance of a holistic view, considering genetics, environment, and lifestyle, for effectively addressing chronic conditions.
Part 3 of this chronic pain series navigates the emerging understanding of pain as an interpretive process, largely driven by our unconscious sensory system. I further discuss how tuning this system and enhancing stress adaptability can lead to significant health improvements. Offering practical self-care steps and an introduction to the stimulation of the vagus nerve, this section emphasizes the power of consistency, patience, and self-compassion on our journey towards wellness.
