So, once again, I have to suggest mind-body healing techniques first, to retrain the subconscious, before undergoing more drastic medical inter-
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is used by thousands, maybe millions of people around the world. But my favorite "instant" healing technique is DYNAMIND, a similar yet much simpler technique, adapted by Serge Kahili King, PhD, an expert in Huna healing and Hawaiian shamanism.
How does it work? You hold your hands in a prayer position in front of your solar plexus chakra, or navel area, say what you're feeling, e.g., "I feel stabbing pain in my lower back and I know that can change. I want that pain to go away." Then tap seven times on the center of your chest above your thymus gland, then seven times on the web between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, then seven times on your neck at the knob where it meets your back. Then, with hands back in prayer position, take a deep breath in from the top of your head and let it out the bottom of your feet.
This technique uses words, motion, breath, acupuncture points, affirmations, etc., to change your subconscious belief that your pain can't change. If one round focusing on the physical pain doesn't provide relief, work to change the emotions associated with the pain. For instance, say "I feel anger in my lower back and I know that can change. I want the anger to go away."
