Do you have TMJ or facial pain?
Do you have digestive issues such as constipation, IBS or colitis?
Perhaps you also have deltoid (shoulder) pain?
Did you know that these could all be connected?
This Connectedness in the body is sometimes easy to understand through a mechanical function concept. “The knee bone is connected to the shin bone…” Yet other times this Connectedness is not so obvious. How is it that the tailbone can be connected to PMS, IBS, or whiplash? How is it that the pelvis can be connected to shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, or shin splints?
One explanation for this Connectedness is the fascia, a type of connective tissue that surrounds and enfolds the muscles, forming a vast elastic network throughout the body. Acupuncture meridian lines also help explain this Connectedness, the lines being described as rivers distributing energy throughout the body. In Homœopathy, Hahnemann refers to the Vital Force, “the dynamis that animates the material body […] and retains all the parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious vital operation.”
Whichever model is used to understand the Connectedness in the body, it is important to consider the person as a Whole – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually – not just the sum of parts. As a health care practitioner, my work involves searching for the key to discover the Connectedness in your particular pain situation. It is, at times, challenging, but it is always fascinating and so very rewarding when that final clue is found that unravels the pain and restores health! With health re-established, our mind “can freely employ this living, healthy instrument for the higher purpose of our existence.” (Samual Hahneman, Organon of Medicine, Aphorism 9)
No matter how you choose to define your purpose of existence, everyone wants (and has a right) to be healthy, happy, and pain-free! Don’t wait until you are 80 to say, “Gee, if I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself!” Start now to take care of your health and start now to live life again! And start visualizing what your life will be like with more flexibility, more mobility and overall ease.
I look forward to helping you on the road to wellness!
