I recently picked up a short little "self-help" book basically talking about slowing down in life and enjoying "this minute"! Several times in this book the author refers to slowing down and calming your mind VS. physical ailments. Now.....for most of my adult life my Dad has preached "Shellie, figure out what's bothering you, get rid of it(deal with it) and your headaches will disappear!" OoooooH that used to make me madder than I already was! But I tell you, alot of life changing reading material pretty basically stands by that same theory. Mind/Body connection is very interesting to me. I mean Dr.'s, Medications & Hospital's havent helped me out in my quest for finding some relief with Ch's, why not give it a try!? I recently lost my Mom and that's what led me to this particualr book, I felt as if my life had become a manic frenzy!! Probably not making my suffering with these damn headaches one bit better. I've considered the very dangerous brain surgery, voo-doo rituals(just kidding) and anything else without really giving the whole mind/body thing a thought!
So off I go to the library to see just what's out there on this subject. Any comments anyone? I'd like to hear what you think! :)
BTW** I started on the 800mg.'s of Magnesium today....let's see what happens...I'll keep ya posted!
