I had an amazing doctor when I was going to nursing school; When a patient tackled me as well as broke our back, I underwent a lot of physical therapy, but it wasn’t helping, then i was walking again, even though I was in drastic painâ€¦ My doctor suggested I try medical marijuana for the pain, then she also gave me some pamphlets that talked about holistic healthâ€¦ Holistic health worked with the mind, body, as well as spirit to treat its patients.
I was taking beginner yoga classes as well as studying how to meditateâ€¦ Along with small doses of medical marijuana, I was studying how to meditate as well as circumvent the pain I was feeling. Although meditation did not completely ease our pain, it upped our pain threshold as well as helped lower the pain levelâ€¦ Beginners yoga was showing me how to do stretching exercises from a chair that would help take some pressure off our back, as well as yet stretch it as well as help me receive mobility. It surprised me how much I was studying about holistic health from our physician. It took almost 2 years, even though I was finally back into nursing, as well as I once again met the doctor I was training under. She seemed pleased with our progress as well as asked if I was sure I was ready to come back to school? I explained how I had learn a lot about holistic health, as well as I was practicing yoga as well as meditation every day. After getting our nursing degree, I wanted to get a degree in holistic health. She told me if I needed any help, all I needed to do was ask.
