I am so excited and hopeful to be here on this forum and to be starting this program. I have had hip/knee/heel pain for a several years. I have had xrays with just the average 56 yr olds mild arthritis showing up in my knee and hip. I have had a feeling for a long time that this pain was here to teach me something or help me heal something. I have a background in energy work and holistic health modalities. Over the last 3 years I have tried to heal my body with everything from physical therapy to rolfing to energy work and on and on...Nothing and I mean nothing even touched the pain ...in fact it has gotten worse and worse along with me finding other ways to numb the pain through the evening wine and cigarettes and daily advil. It has stripped me of my self confidence and my hope for the life I have and wanted is gettig dimmer. I live on a 10 cre ranch with my horses, dog and cat. Everyday it gets more difficult and exxpensive to be here. I have had to hire people to do many of the things I used to do every day. It feels like this pain is taking away everything that matters to me in my life. I don't even remember how I came across Dr SArno's book now and it's only been a few days but when I read it I just knew that's what this was. I am excited for this journey of healing and to get my life back but even better than ever because for sure I will be grateful for my body like never before.
