Something I want to share immediately is that I have had hand discomfort and stiffness for about 10 years. I knew the cause was not occupational. I know people who do not do anything arduous with their hands and they have hand pain. Even children. Okay, so my hands could be stiff at times, but the most upsetting thing to me was that they could hurt very badly if someone tried to shake my hand or if anyone tired to hold my hand. This was a really bad sign to me. Toward the end of my living in NYC, as a bodyworker and colon therapist, I used my hands despite this discomfort and utilized my elbows and forearms when I could for bodywork. I never accepted hand pain as unsolvable. I can report that the pain in my hands is completely gone. I still have some finger stiffness at times, but it is nothing in comparison to what I did have 18 months ago when I began The Unique Healing Program.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL PAIN?
My experience is a slow healing with my right hip, but I have had pain in my right hip joint beginning in early 2001. I am also over 55 years of age. As a dancer, athlete, bodyworker and yoga teacher I always had some stiffness in my hips and hamstrings. I worked at being flexible. Quite frankly, most of the other athletes, dancers and yoga teachers I knew, also worked at being flexible. What does that mean? This is all subjective, but many to most over stretched their bodies and created more problems than they realized. Some people start certain athletics to defy physical limitations. People tend to be more competitive when they are younger and are not working their bodies from the inside out. Does this feel right? What is good for me? No Pain, No Gain is part of our culture here in the USA and in other countries all over the world. Re: The Olympics.
INFLAMMATION IS NOT A ONE AREA OF THE BODY DEAL
To understand that our Immune System is also encapsulated in our joints is very important. Here is one explanation.To understand that our Immune System is greatly contained in out gut is vital to understand how we heal and how we become inflamed weakened and ill. Here is one explanation.
HAND PAIN AND THE LUNG AND LARGE INTESTINE
One hand point that is very important to know about that is linked to the Large Intestines and Lungs is located in the hand. It is an extremely common place for many to have pain and to develop some calcifications. It is near a joint that easily begins to look arthritic and “deformed”. I don’t like that word, but it gets the point across. Large Intestines 4 is a good point to treat yourself for, among other things, gas and constipation.
Some people feel that the body heals from the head down. I have sort of experienced this, but have had healing breakthroughs and changes all over my body while on The Unique Healing Program. I also have frustration about areas not healing, to my liking, fast enough. Generally speaking, I am not really sure exactly what is going on, but in most instances this theory seems sort of true. Legs can heal much later in the game due to gravity, poor circulation that increase the likelihood of toxins collecting there due to these facts. What is your experience?
If you are on The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin, hang in there. If you are debating whether to begin it or not, keep watching her videos, read her books and check out past posts on this blog site. These tools will help you to decide and make an educated decision. One thing I have to say is that part of not feeling well can be ruminating too much and not taking action. Just keep that in mind.
