One of the aspects of my work in teaching people to be well is working to teach people to stop reactions to pain. The statistics of the number of people dependent on pain killers and tranquillisers in the UK alone is horrifying.
I have mixed feelings towards the pharmaceutical industry – i don t see it as entirely bad as many conditions require medical intervention and i have no problem with taking the odd pain killer and antibiotics are a life saver if we need them. The method i practice is not an alternative to dr s but i believe we need to take more responsibility for our personal wellbeing.
Dr s have more and more choices of drugs to prescribe you and less and less time to explore or at least discuss the causes of your disturbance and suffering.
The escalating problem i do see is many of us wanting quick fixes and avoiding the root causes of chronic conditions and physical and emotional pain.
If you are ready to take responsibility for your health then i look forward to hearing from you.
