View this post on Hive: The Natural Medicine of Alignment for Injury Healing
@artemislives beautiful post. It is true the Yoga is the answer to good life and good health. I have been going trough major neck & shoulder muscle spasm for the past 16 months and doctors have no solution for it. All they have to say is “it’s all in your mind”. I have given up on doctors and I plan to take up yoga for sure. And after reading this post it makes me even more confident. Thank you for sharing 😌😇
Glad to have been able to inspire you and give you some sense of hope and a way forward. Muscles spasm is a PRIMARY symptom of magnesium deficiency, and can be VERY painful when nerve endings are caught in contracted, tight muscle. I'd highly recommend a more magnesium right diet (whole organic foods, not pills!), regular use of a topical magnesium spray and regular magnesium (epsom salts) baths or foot soaks. And yes, yoga. Mindful breathing into the spasm and alignment. :) Wishing you health and freedom from pain.
I had the same! It was torture! Relaxing and acupuncture cured me in 10 days.. xx
Look at u go! I remeber last year u could barely use your hand at allll!! I were the one handed wonder! Well done for ignoring stupid doctors and staying so positive and working so hard! Now u really got the results!! Xxx
Appreciating your practical support and guidance sooo much - you teaching Ploi to make dahl has meant that we OFTEN have the luxury now of her taking care of us. I will be doing handstands by the time I see you at steemfest! #sf4
Well done! You give me hope if you can come so far from so much damage. I've been having issues with my upper arm and shoulder muscles. Do the wrong thing and I have pain shooting through that region and sometimes down my whole arm and it's been getting worse. I've started applying magnesium oil and I'm wondering if posture might have anything to do with it, so I need to work on that.
Thank you for such an inspirational post.

Poor postural habit has EVERYthing to do with it!! The poor alignment and muscle/nerve apin is the accumulation of YEARS of poor movement patterns. A great Feldenkrais practitioner can help, as can yoga and chi quong. If that's all too woo-woo or your budget doesn't stretch that far, get down to your local pool and swim gentle laps of BACKstroke - aiming with each stroke to enter the water exactly at the mid point over your head. Be amazed at how effective that simple technique can be too!
Magnesium relaxes muscles and eases nerve pain and promotes better sleep - which ALL help A LOT. But without improved movement pattern, strength training and better alignment, it's not enough.
Having a good therapist come to your home and evaluate you in your daily life - how you sit, walk, carry laundry, sleep etc can be eye opening.
Woo-woo it's not, but at the moment many things are certainly beyond my budget. The university of YouTube is calling.Thank you for your feedback.
Thanks for sharing your great experiences, darling.
A huge hug 🤗
Huge hugs back to you @amico - are you planning to come to steemfest?? I think it's time!
I'll decide at the last minute whether to come or not... I'd love to meet you! 🙏Posted with
very good post!
Thank you - and sweet of you to pause and say so. :)
Appreciating the resteem LURVE @kalemandra and @amico - almost like old @smg days!! Appreciating you both. x And @kenistyles who taught us all so well.
My pleasure, darling! 🙏I miss @kenistyles! Who knows if with #newsteem he'll want to come back? 🙄Posted with
I have read about this somewhere earlier. Great to see that you find a very useful way to get rid of your pain.
good practice & a good use of both natural tags! ;)namaste ॐ
Ah! Arising from a lumpy base! As funny as that sounds, this post is such a beautifully hopeful one! I'm going to take that lumpy metaphor into the rest of my week that I'm struggling through. Lumpy base, light, yep, got it!! xx That yoga studio looks lovely - far removed from our heated studios in freezing Victoria. Glad to see you are back at yoga - a few moments without all the other things that life demands. xx
I wonder what does it feel being in a yoga. I hope your arm will be fine not for long, I think stretching will help you in healing that.
Injury manifests imbalance.
Injury manifests imbalance.
Finally... sigh... someone who gets it. It's so hard to get that message across :0)
I've been struggling with my back for 2 years now. All doctors want me to have that 3rd surgery, and call me crazy because I refuse. I have to find that balance inside myself again, first, or I'll be right back where I started afterwards.
Thanks for this post. Good to know I'm not crazy, lol
You are more sane than most. Hang in there. It's about creating enough muscle relaxation (magnesium, heat, acupuncture, massage) to ALLOW the realignment. And then to strengthen the weak spots to allow you to HOLD that realignment. You got this!! x
Thanks! I do hope so 😉Posted with

Dear @artemislives Our country (Venezuela) by tradition does not know much about YOGA, we know the benefits it can bring to health, but we congratulate you because in addition to yoga and the energy it involves, we are sure that your willpower made the difference, this good mood and the desire to recover your life made it possible for everything to be fine and that you were filled with good health, we send you a hug from my country, we hope to continue learning beautiful things from you and your experiences.
That's a wonderful approach you have taken towards healing. Yoga is one of the best way to heal anything in your body. For years I had a frozen shoulder, I have not done any other treatment except for Yoga and I am healed completely.Also you may want to try some Energy Medicines like you can check on Donna Eden Energy Medicine routines, they are very helpful as they cover the Acupressure points and work wonderfully.The good thing I see is that you are doing the good old traditional Yoga and not those power yoga practices which is the new trend but I do not find that very beneficial.Wishing you complete speedy recovery my dear 💗💗
Oh @artemislives! That must have been horrible to have such an injury in your arm! Good for you for not listening to the orthopedic specialist and going the surgery route! Love how you take your healing into your own hands and that you are doing remarkably well! Another showing of what an incredibly strong woman you are!Keep well and thank you for sharing your healing story!
Inspiring and beautiful! Hopefully the doctor is open to learning about true healing, the healing a body knows how to do for itself if the mind listens to its messages and helps it along the path. I had no idea you have been going through all this! Excellent work. Gonna make better use of magnesium for my son, who lives in severe discomfort.
