Hi SnookieBow: I just finished watching the video. I think he makes some great points, and I really like that he takes a healthy approach which includes issues with past trauma, posture, healthy eating, etc.. But, I have to wonder if it's that simple?
I nearly died of a severe flu when I was an infant. I was hospitalized for a month and packed in ice. My family started a prayer campaign invoking St. Jude (considered "the saint of the impossible"), and the doctor later said he thinks it was a miracle that I survived. My mom told me many times about
all the shots I had received. I think my body has been traumatized since then. It really got 'messed up' at a very young age.
All that said, I have to wonder if anything like more exercise, healthy eating (I do pretty well now, I think), better posture (yes, I keep working on that one!), and the emotional side (I think I'm okay on that) would really change my fibro. It sounds intriguing, but I have to wonder. Those bad effects in my body as an infant took their toll, I'm afraid, though I continue to try for healthy living.
I did think it was good that he reminded people of the importance of healthy mind and body, and the dangers of drugs to help the problems; the whole "picture." I do think medication has its place, though I've never been a fan. But, I wonder how he would feel in the middle of a bad flare? He may change his mind a bit, maybe and take some sort of medication? I think we would all love to be off all meds!
Thanks for sharing. I noticed there were other similar videos and it might be helpful to check some out. I like hearing different opinions on fibro--I can often find some inspiration, and they remind me to recheck my diet, meds, posture, etc. That's a good thing!
