Pain Management without Medication

Don't underestimate the power of your mind to control pain.  

Sometime we have no choice but to take medication to relieve severe or chronic pain.   But what if you had some alternatives that would either eliminate or at least relief your pain without the pill?  Would you try it? 

Did you know, ‘when we experience pain we often hold our breath, which can contribute to inflammation through the release of the stress hormone cortisol,” says Jane Permotto Ehrman, a behavior health specialist at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Lifestyle Medicine?  

What if I told you if you closed your eyes and imagined your body growing more relaxed every second?  As your breath through our belly, visualize oxygen filling any area of tensions with comfort and calm.   Then see the pain dissipating with each exhalation.   “The longer your exhale, the more you stimulate the vagus nerve in the brain, telling it you’re in a safe environment,” says Chicago psychologist Michael Merrill, PhD.  

The Mind is the most powerful tool we have.  We have all heard this but, how many of us have been taught how or how to use it.   Don't under estimate your power.   Learn more today.
