Tell your Brain to Walk with Pain

I am not for any stretch of my imagination suggesting that any of us can do what Tiger does – but we can consider what it means to us as just ‘ordinary’ people if we challenge our own physical pain . Listen to this brief explanation of what some of the pain experts are saying about how to control pain, by redirecting the concept of pain and how to manage this challenge.

Integrative Medicine Conversations

In past blog posts I have written about the ways Integrative Medicine can impact our lives as an addition to our wellness regimens.

This is not to suggest that your medications are not appropriate for your medical needs. However, I believe that conversations about other methods in how we think about pain is worth exploring.

Dr. Andrew Weil, has been a pioneer of new ideas for maintaining a healthful lifestyle, his website has a wealth of information that you will want to explore.

In a recent podcast Dr. Weil discusses ideas with Dr. Howard Schubiner, an internist, pediatrician, and director of the Mind Body Medicine Center, which they refer to as “Mind-Body Approaches” to healing chronic pain.

As I have discussed in the past, the aging process brings about all types of adjustments we must confront. Therefore, when I find something interesting, which I believe can complement your well-being, I am eager to share it with you.

Below is podcast, which discusses integrative methods, for healing chronic pain and what causes it.

Listen when you find an opportunity. It just may help you.
