Re: How do you deal with pain without using medication?

I use a soft cold pack every morning for about an hour.  I'm fortunate to have an Infrared Sauna that I get in for an hour before I get in bed.  I'm 90 years old, diagnosed about 6 years ago with spinal stenosis.  After 2 cortisone shots that helped immensely, I was put on Celebrex as needed, but  after a later diagnosis of possible kidney disease I knew I needed to get off all NSAID's.

I do self hypnosis daily while riding an inside cycle for 25 minutes, no pains ever and walk 12,000 steps daily! Positive addiction, no meds

I use  Essential Oils and Tumeric.  Try to do 10,000 steps a day.  It helps 80%. I recently started and expect greater things as I continue in my journey.

I haven"t used pain meds in such a long time! I will be 59 years old in May and have been taking plant based supplements now for almost 5 years! 

 

It targets our second brain which is our gut! Also inflammation and blood sugar!

 

I feel like I am in my 20's!! So thankful!

Anti-Inflammatory foods, such as pineapples, cherries, blueberries, etc.  5 ozs. in the morning & evening, along with exercises such as walking, stretching, etc.
