How to regain control of your body’s ability to heal chronic pain.
Take a guess. What organ controls healing in your body? We discussed this in the last blog. What organ would be responsible for coordinating and activating the healing of your chronic pain?
The answer is the brain. The brain sends messages through the nerves to heal injuries and illnesses, everything from broken bones to the flu. It’s not the cast or the theraflu that heals, it’s your body under the direction of the brain. There is a “life force” that living beings have that is required to heal. After all, dead people with cuts and broken bones won’t heal no matter how much medicine you pump into them. While this seems obvious, it’s often forgotten when it comes to dealing with chronic pain. Our body is meant to be healthy, it was designed to heal itself, the process though, needs to be unobstructed, without interference. When the brain’s control over healing is at it’s best, you have the best chance of overcoming chronic pain.
The fact is, nerves and brain communication that is interfered with, is one contributor to chronic pain not healing. It’s often the missing link. Nerve communication interference commonly happens when the bones of your spine are misaligned, leading to chronic pain lingering, festering, making your life miserable. Chiropractors don’t try to treat the pain, they try to correct the cause, that which is perpetuating chronic pain, by removing interference in brain-nerve-body communication. This leads to facilitating and improving your body’s ability to heal itself. That’s what makes chiropractic different. That is what you are looking for. After all, all the doctors, therapists, and “healers” you’ve seen thus far have likely missed something, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading about chronic pain, you’d be out having fun enjoying a body and life free of chronic pain.
