Aches & Pains

If you have aches and pains, chances are your muscles are involved. The hard part is figuring out what is causing the muscles to be painful.

Below are just a few of the factors that will affect aches and pains in the body.

  • Vitamin/mineral deficiencies
  • Stress
  • Poor posture/ergonomics
  • Overexertion
  • Allergies
  • Repetitive stress
  • Inflammatory diet
  • Toxin build up
  • Inability to cope with pain
  • Emotions
  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • Muscle imbalances surrounding joints

If you think that nutrition, allergies, leaky gut, inflammatory diet, toxin build up or vitamin/mineral deficiencies are a factor in your pain, then getting blood tests and working with a specialist is a great start.  Then you can use the E-book Boosting Metabolism with Food and Habits or Cleansing with the Seasons to progress you towards optimum health.

If stress or emotions seem to be your biggest issue, then check out Volume’s I and II of Mastering the Universe and Optimum Health for corrective strategies.

The focus here is finding the key that will unlock the pain from your body, naturally and through lifestyle changes. Chances are you have habits that contribute to the aches and pains, so rearranging some priorities and habits are probably in order.

Use this site to find your weakest links and change them, one at time.

Unlike most doctors, I have spent more than 15 years studying the muscles, physiology and nutrition in relation to  pain patterns and symptoms.  I also successfully practice soft-tissue techniques and implement medical exercise programs for 1000’s of clients – this is the basis for the holistic approach you see here.

Please do not believe that rest alone can help your situation or even worse, anti-inflammatories. These are proven to PROLONG healing.

The secret to a full recovery, which includes preventing it from happening again, is balancing the muscles and joints surrounding key areas and learning what, and what not to do, eat, and think on a daily basis.

Here are some GOOD THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MUSCLE PAIN;

  • Most of the time, up to 75%, the source of soft tissue pain is not at the site of the pain. Trigger points can refer pain all the way down the extremities and up into the head.
  • Trigger points are a common cause of muscle and joint pain and have known referral patterns throughout the entire body.
  • Balancing tension in the muscles and joints can relieve pain and get rid of trigger points.
  • Better posture leads to more energy, better digestion, less aches and pains, and much much more.
  • Muscle pain can persist as long as the habits that created it persist.
  • Muscle pain can vanish as soon as the habits that created it vanish.
  • Injured muscles do not tend to fully recover on their own.
  • Muscles repair themselves with scar tissue, which has less blood flow and range of motion due to thicker fibers in the “scar”.
  • It is possible to better align this scar tissue and improve its function with movement and massage.

If you are self-motivated and ready to take health into your own hands, then this site can help you.

If you consistently do more of what makes it better than what makes it worse, you will get better, every time – simple, I know.

It is not unusual to find that your pain will instantly disappear once certain habits improve, and that’s without even balancing the muscles! However, balancing the muscles is what will keep the pain from coming back again.
