|Chronic pain is a silent epidemic.|
“I am not my pain. My pain is in me. That’s a very important distinction. We are experiencing it but it is not who we are.” – Elizabeth Kipp
Emotional issues from having a lack of worthiness can contribute to chronic pain
as Elizabeth Kipp, my guest on today’s podcast, shares.
Elizabeth is a health facilitator specializing in stress and chronic pain management, addiction recovery, Ancestral Clearing®, and yoga. Her book, The Way Through Chronic Pain: Tools to Reclaim Your Healing Power, is focused on helping people realize the power of their inherent healing.
What is chronic pain?
Chronic pain, she says, is any pain: physical, spiritual, emotional, financial, or whatever is felt for 15 out of 30 days for three months or more.
Sadly, one out of four American suffers from chronic pain, according to the National Institute of Health, and one out of five people suffer from it worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
Elizabeth’s healing journey through chronic pain
Personally, Elizabeth healed from more than forty years of chronic pain, including anxiety, panic attacks, and addiction to prescribed opiate and benzodiazepine medication.
In this episode, “Chronic Pain—A Silent Epidemic,” Elizabeth discusses the cycle of suffering and how to break through and change the story. Listen here.
Pain is the currency of transformation.
With hope and inspiration, she quotes one of her teachers: “Pain is the currency of transformation, be careful how you spend it.”
