This guy is pretty good and has a lot of good ideas about health and healing. He's considered to be a new age Edgar Cayce and his story is an interesting one. Here's o=one of his articles about health, injury, and body repair.

[Article]
Injuries can seem pretty black and white. You get into a car accident and hurt your neck, or you slip on a wet surface, fall, and break or sprain your ankle. Injuries happen every day and they are a normal and common part of life.

What’s not so straightforward is when someone injures themselves but just doesn’t recover well. Or the injury hangs around for years causing more pain and immobility. Or maybe the injury is worse after surgery. Meanwhile someone else may be recovered in a week and have some pain, but soon feel good as new.

There’s also mysterious injuries that can occur. You may not have something physically apparent that your doctor or specialist can see, but you’re still in pain and injured. Or maybe tests show a past injury has healed but there’s still pain.

Simple Steps To Heal Injuries

1. Warm and Cold Packs

The simple technique of placing hot and cold packs on injured and chronically inflamed areas is very effective, but often overlooked or ignored. To treat an injured area like your back or neck, place a warm pack
against the area for 30 minutes in the morning to loosen the muscles. The over the day and evening, place a cold pack against the area for 30 minutes. Do this two times. The cold pack trains the nerves to calm down and reduce inflammation so they don’t get more inflamed, crack, and harden. It’s important to follow this schedule of warm and cold packs as closely as possible. It can make all the difference in your recovery.

Greetings Master Octagon

If it is nerve damage there is not a lot that does work. However I have found that using a 'Tens Machine@ works quite well if the pain becomes intense. The small ecctric shocks interrupt the gateways of the pain receptors ..or so my chemist tells me..dose work but takes 3 goes 11/2 hours lol

I actually use a tend machine myself. It works pretty well for lower back pain.

Thanks Mike, that's good to know.

A good thing to remember is that the body responds to the suggestions given by the mind. People heal better if they have a core belief that their body heals better.

A good article :)

I've been known to ignore/neglect the body + mind relationship a lot in the past. My reoccuring shoulder issues are most definitely physical, it's not imagined or psychological in the sense that the pain and inflammation is real and there. However, I know that stress is a trigger, and have come to the conclusion that stress + anxiety makes me be tensed up over longer periods of time, thus causing the physical injury to flare back up. Saying there's a psychological component to the various ailments that we can suffer doesn't mean that it's "made-up", like I used to think. Only that mind and body affect each other mutually, it's all part of the bigger picture. Movement and medication can only do so much, if one continues to have the psychological state contributing to worsening the injury/illness.

And I didn't write that as an opposing argument to anything here, simply to state into the air an argument against how I used to think, and what I've since learned. Something I keep having to remind myself, lol.

Most western thinking is about separation. Treatment of the symptoms and less concentration on the cause. Followed by a belief that stuff just happens without rhyme or reason. Or, we think most things that happen to us don't have a spiritual component, there's always a spiritual meaning to everything that does and doesn't happen to us. Just because we can't see it doesn't mean it don't exist.

Every Jedi faces the Jedi Trials daily. It comes down to do or die. Taking responsibility for what you have called into your life and becoming its master or letting it master you.

A lot of people see healing as something that is beyond them and they rely on others (professionals) to heal them. They mentally and spiritually give the power to heal themselves over to someone else. It is important to remember that no one should be as invested in your healing as you. It's your personal experience. Ultimately the responsibility of healing is up to you.

Here's a story of someone who found the ability to take responsibility for their healing. Now the logical mind argues against such things saying the professionals know what they're doing and I don't, but the logical mind isn't all seeing and all knowing which is what growth is all about.

5 Things Healing From Terminal Cancer Taught Me About Adversity

Adversity can be our greatest teacher. In a recent study, participants who reported the highest levels of adversity also reported the highest levels of personal growth and self-development.

This was definitely true for me. Halfway through my life, my career as a foreign war correspondent was over. After failed surgery to mend my broken back from a freak accident, I was declared permanently disabled and sentenced to life in a stiff body brace. I was washing down handfuls of painkillers, antidepressants, and muscle relaxers every day with copious amounts of alcohol. I gained a ton of weight, and when things couldn't have seemed more hopeless, my doctors diagnosed me with terminal, stage IV cancer from exposure to spent uranium while covering the Gulf War.

With only months to live, I'd given up all hope, until my two-year-old son came to my bedside and pleaded, "Get up, Daddy." Those three words became my motivator and my healing mantra. In that moment, I knew I had to do something radical, or die trying. If I didn't, my son would grow up without a father.

I was diagnosed with cancer in 1998, and by 2000 was deeply immersed in yoga and becoming an organic vegan. In 2002 I had a transcendental experience of feeling cancer leave my body. Today I've been cancer-free for more than 15 years, which my doctors call a miracle. To share the transformative powers of yoga, I founded the Deep Yoga School of Healing Arts and now have the privilege of teaching throughout America and in India.

I now know that cancer and a broken back were two of the greatest blessings in my life, and that adversity is an amazing catalyst for personal growth. Here are five lessons I learned that may help anyone gripped with hopelessness.

1. Create a power symbol.

Who or what touches you at the soul level? For me, it was my son, his three words to me, and the image of his face as I grew stronger. Your power symbol is something you desperately care about, and it becomes your healing mantra that will carry you through the inevitable times of challenge. Whenever I faltered, I repeated my son's words over and over. Ive found that when you anchor into a positive thought, the whole world seems to rise up to support you.

2. Trust in your own power to self-heal.

You have an inherent power to heal to your maximum potential. Don't be passive. Take control of your own healing journey. The way I supported my body's innate ability to self-heal was through mind-body therapies, diet, purification techniques, meditation, a spiritual discipline, movement, and daily practice. By supporting my body's own healing abilities, it was ultimately able to heal and function at its full potential.

3. Turn self-healing into your top priority.

When my body was in a critical state of breakdown, it required a level of single-minded focus and hard work unmatched by anything I had ever before attempted. I would arise at 3 a.m. to begin meditation, deep breathing, and thanking my back pain and cancer for being my greatest teachers. Throughout the day, punctuated by time with my son, I made self-healing my main occupation. I read ancient and modern texts on yoga, explored yoga postures, fasted, did visualization, performed physical purifications, and much more. I refused to let low-value people and activities or outside pressure discourage me from my mission to heal.

4. Pursue the best healing discipline for you.

There are many ways to self-heal. I chose yoga science combined with Ayurvedic medicine, diet, and purifications. Open your mind to what's out there, and find a discipline that resonates with you. Then dive into it with passion. Become the most devoted student you've ever been. Read, study under great teachers, go on retreats, and engage in the discipline every day. Don't dabble in this or that; stick with the path that resonates the most with you and dig a deep well.

5. Clean up your act.

It's nearly impossible to heal from a serious illness or injury if you continue to put things in your body that are bad for you. It may feel like a well-deserved indulgence to have a big fat steak, a sugary dessert, a strong cocktail, or a late night junk-food snack. But unhealthy and impure substances will slow down your progress and can even reverse it. My body was so polluted with alcohol, prescription meds, and food laden with chemicals, salt, fat, and sugar that it took a long time to get these toxins out of my body and reverse their toxic effects. Once I completely cleaned my body from the inside, however, my mind and body responded well to yoga and all the other healing modalities I was using. The purer your life, the more vibrant your health will be.

Very similar to what Nira said, I'm also growing more open and curious about the spiritual and mental connections to our physical health. I've been experiencing breathing problems for a few months now, and after another costly appointment with a doctor this morning that resulted in receiving pain medication that I don't want or need, I'm just about at my wit's end. My gym even called to make sure I was ok because I haven't been able to work out in weeks. I'm so frustrated.

So, maybe this is an opportunity for something new. If it gets me back to being an active person again, I'll do it, lol.

It all comes down to our core beliefs. We have anchors in our belief system that serve as a foundation for our mental states of mind which echo our feelings about life. Because thoughts create things we constantly project our belief systems into the world.

Growth comes from unlearning what you have learned, and forming new anchors of belief that support new belief systems, which support new mental states, which support change and growth.

“ A mind that is already full
Cannot take in
Anything new.”
“Like this cup,
You are full of opinions and preconceptions.”
To find happiness, you must first empty your cup.
-Zen master

The meaning is clear. In Jedi training or any type of training we may hide our anchors and go along with the program because we know the training is temporary. After it's done we have really given up very little of our core belief systems, after all we have become comfortable with our habits over the years.

So, sooner or later during our Jedi Trials of life, we are tested by life to see just how much we have given up.

"Our life doesn't change, until we do."

Letting go of a limiting belief system is the greatest challenge for a Jedi. It's not easy walking down a road you've never walked before. It feels a lot safer working with the demons you've known over the years...

That old definition of insanity attributed to Einstein has been popping up for me lately. I keep doing some of the same things and expecting different results. Time to reconsider a few things indeed.
