Meditation, it's been helping....

I just want to share with you all that I've been trying a new approach with my pain management. I still take the medications, but all the other treatments/procedures have failed in helping with the pain.

I've turned my thinking around and I tell myself through out the day that "I'm getting better, my spinal cord is healed". I'm also meditating everyday. For about 20 minutes a day when the kids are off to school, or right before I go to bed on the weekends. I relax my entire body and clear my mind. Sometimes I listen to calming/relaxing music when doing this. Youtube is great for a varity of music. One of my favorites is Kyrie, Eleison - Fountain of life by Margaret Rizza.

This has by far been the best medicine. It's been helping me be at peace and it helps me deal with this pain in a much better way. I've noticed I'm happier all around. The mind is very powerful.


  • I've also focused on turning all my thoughts into positive thoughts and getting rid of the negative feelings. I've noticed that I've been really negative the past two years, due to the severe pain.

    approaches. Some many years of taking regular medications, I wanted to try a different method.

    - Osteopathic Treatments
    - Relaxation Techniques (Music)
    - Aroma and Candle Therapy
    - Personal Meditation

    All have given me what I call an upper edge on my pain management. I still am taking the narcotics, the nerve medications, and muscle relaxers, but I last longer between needed to take them.

    Its definitely worth trying. You do have to have an open mind to these different ways of healing the body
