TMHS 012: Treating Back Pain, Degenerative Disc Disease, And "Incurable" Diseases
In this episode of The Model Health Show we go in-depth on one of the leading causes for missed work days and doctor visits in our society: Chronic back pain.
This topic is really significant for me because chronic back pain totally destroyed my life at one point. Not having any idea of what went wrong or what to do about it, I sought out the help of medical professionals that were supposed to have the skills to help me.
With the medical practitioners focus on treating symptoms, rather than root causes, my situation went from bad, to worse, to extremely worse.
Today I’m going to share with you exactly what happened. I’m going to share with you how I went from being broken down with “the spine of an 80-year old” to completely reversing my symptoms, regenerating my spinal tissues, and dedicating my life to help others.
If you’re ever diagnosed with an “incurable” illness, please understand that this diagnosis does not have the final say about you.
Often times the word “incurable” gets tossed around because the practitioner doesn’t know how to fix it personally. There’s also this other term called “spontaneous remission” that gets tossed around when they can’t explain how you got better. Today I’m going to share with you how to get better.
