Coping with Chronic Pain Naturally

Coping with Chronic Pain Naturally

There are many options for treating chronic pain in Naturopathic Medicine which can include herbal anti-inflammatories like turmeric and boswellia as well as homeopathics and topical creams and oils.
In our Mississauga Naturopathic office we also encourage meditation and mindfulness techniques.  Below is a video that you may like to incorporate as you learn to address your chronic pain.
Check out this youtube like if you would like to learn a mindfulness approach to chronic pain and discomfort in your body:

The author of this audio script is Jon Kabat Zinn–a very well known educator on meditation. He is a Professor of Medicine Emeritus and the creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and Centre for Mindfulness in Meditation at the University of  Massachusetts Medical School.
So–this guy is no slouch!  Unlike other educators, he is able to discuss meditation in very tangible terms.
