Coping with chronic pain can push you to crisis. I have suffered through many of them, each and every day during the initial onset, regularly during my daily management and with times of change and stress.
I was told by the leading pain management medical team at the time, that the agonising chronic pain I was living with, would be a permanent feature of my life. They said there had been some success among other patients with some natural and holistic methods for pain reduction and management, so I set about trying to find myself a tool kit. In reality, it out was out of the times of desperation that my true searching for anything to help and my willingness to try came. Today I am grateful for this, as not only did I find tools to help me in a crisis and during my day to day management, but over a long period of time and consistency, I managed to calm my chronic pain. Today, I now live the majority of my life without pain, something that at the time, I never would have thought possible.
I wanted to share a tool kit of therapies that can be used to manage and calm your chronic pain and hyper-aroused nervous systems. The toolkit focuses on natural and holistic methods that can all be utilised at home. I have used them myself and they are grounded in scientific research. As we talk through the tool kit, you will see that many of the strategies are interlinked, offering a network of accumulating support. They may not all be suitable for all pain influenced conditions so I would encourage you to try the ones that would best suit you.
So you can gently give them a go, we will be unveiling the tool kit over 3 subsequent blogs.
