Can you relate?
That was me for over a decade. Starting at age 15, I’d get some kind of injury or “itis” and then I’d go on anti-inflammatories to fix it, which would hurt my stomach and create all kinds of other issues.
I eventually just stopped playing sports and doing things that would aggravate my issues, but it didn’t take away the chronic pain and discomfort.
By 18 years old I had run my body into the ground and got adrenal fatigue. By 26, I was showing markers for an autoimmune disease, was in full adrenal burnout and had been fighting chronic candida for a year.
I was also using food, drugs, caffeine and chaos to manage my life and try to gain control of it all.
I felt so lost and frustrated. I was also super disappointed in myself.
Disappointed that couldn’t just get it together. Disappointed at my lack of control with food. Disappointed that couldn’t just be ok and normal…
And of course, that disappointment would just want me to numb out even more.
I didn’t know what was wrong with me but I knew something was.
It wasn’t until I discovered what the source of my problem was that my chronic pain, addictions and inner “not-okness” went away.
I discovered that the source of my problem was inflammation.
Not just physical inflammation, but spiritual inflammation.
Physical inflammation explained why I’d wake up in the morning feeling stiff and achy, but spiritual inflammation explained why I’d also wake up in the morning being pissed for no good reason.
I’d get agitated and impatient with others, and it felt like the cards were always stacked against me.
I felt restless. Not just in my body but in my soul.
It was only when I discovered the solution to addressing both my physical inflammation and my spiritual inflammation – without drugs, deprivation or more dependence – that I truly got free – in body, mind and spirit.
Freedom gave me energy to be more active, do more socially and connect authentically. It also made me lighter and feel unencumbered.
I didn’t realize how heavy I felt before, but once I got free, it was like a huge weight got lifted off of me and I could finally breathe.
If you’re struggling with chronic pain, addiction or both, then I want you to know that you can be free from all of it.
I recently heard from a client who told me that after she integrated the simple practices I showed her about how to be free from her chronic and spiritual pain, her physical symptoms went away and so did her addiction.
She even released about 20lbs which helped her to feel even lighter.
Today she has the energy to be more active, her relationship is stronger than ever and she has re-engaged with her creative side which fills her with even more joy.
So much is possible when you have the real solution for freedom from chronic pain and addiction.
I spent over a decade navigating that path myself, but today, I’m honored that I can simply show you the simple practices to do so that you don’t have to waste another 10 years figuring it out.
So if that’s something you want to know more about, then schedule a 15min chat with me by clicking here. I’d be happy to help you get some clarity.
I got free from food, drug, work, dependency, love and chaos addictions. And I’d be honored to show you how you can too.
In dedication of all things raw, real and recovered,
