Sorting out back pain and living healthily with chiropractor and podcast host Dr. Michelle Robin #71
- How can we tap in the power of the body to heal?
- How can we make sure the odds are in our favour?
- How can we get our body and mind working in sync?
Affirmations, calming down your self-talk, and thinking in a positive way about healing. How might all this stuff going on in the mind, impact physical symptoms, like a bad back?
Back pain is something I have a specific interest in. That's because every once in a while, mine hurts.
Dr. Michelle Robin is a fascinating expert in this area. She is a 'wellness chiropractor'. She says wellness because she doesn't just want to make sure your spine is in alignment. She wants to really get to know you and understand everything that is going on with your body, mind and spirit so that you can work together to bring you to a state of whole wellbeing. It is for this reason that she ask questions about how you’re pooping (!), what you’re eating, how you’re sleeping, and what your stress levels are like. It all matters.
We start off in this podcast talking generally about the link between mind and body. Then we go deep into the specifics of back pain and the power of the mind. Enjoy.
