10 years ago…
I was struggling intensely with neurological pain from a massive disc herniation. I was still in midwifery and attending births for long hours, and I had very young kids at home whom I needed to be able to lift and carry.
Then my daughter, who was 2 years old at the time, fractured her femur (her thigh bone), and I ended up carrying her in a full body cast for 6 weeks.
That, as they say, was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.
I’d been trying everything I could for about 6 months to help with healing. I was seeing a couple of different chiropractors, going to physiotherapy, seeing one person for Rolfing, and someone else for acupuncture. I tried to do Pilates which had always been my go-to, and I was getting two massages per week just to keep me functioning. I was blessed with knowing some of the very best practitioners in multiple healing fields, and NOTHING was touching the nerve pain I was experiencing. I had never experienced anything like the pain of that disc issue, even having had two home births!
Finally, with literally nothing left to do, I had surgery. Let me tell you, spinal surgery for a chiropractor is absolutely terrifying. (Talk about knowing too much!) Gratefully, surgery went well, and with a ton of strength training after I recovered and a full year of Pilates classes about 3 times per week, I didn’t have another issue.
For 9 years.
Last year I moved and was overjoyed to get back to a regular Pilates routine. One instructor was concerning me with her instructions, and even though I really did know better I ignored my inner voice and kept going to her classes. For the first time in 9 years, I had a flare up. ?
If you’ve ever experienced neurological pain and it returns, it’s mildly terrifying.
This time, though, I had two secret weapons: my husband, Peter, who is the VERY best chiropractic voodoo doc in the world, AND my dōTERRA essential oils. Between Peter’s amazing care and this little gem of a Disc Blend that I mixed up, I was pain free and back to myself within one week. Which is pretty miraculous, if you’ve ever experienced disc pain. ?
