5 Powerful Mind-Body Actions To Transform Your Body, Business, and Life

Heal Yourself From Slipped Disc

Heal Yourself From Slipped Disc

A cold or a cut finger is one thing…

But a slipped disc is quite another.

When your body throws you a doozie, what do you do?

Do you really think you could handle it? Would you trust your body’s wisdom to heal it? Or do you think you just lie on the sofa, paralyzed by fear?

In this brand new (filmed in Boulder) episode of LAHF TV, I’m answering Heather’s question about healing her slipped disc + you’ll learn a simple way to dissolve the fear of injury.

AND I’ll also tell you why trying to heal yourself can actually be making things worse!

“Why mind over matter doesn’t work.” @laurahames & the #ActionShip

If you’ve ever experienced any thing like Heather, I’d love to hear about it. What did you do? Did you act on your fears, or were you able to support your body’s healing capacity?

Join me on the blog and let me know.

    Hi Laura, what a perfectly-timed action ship for me. Like Heather, I am experiencing pain from a nerve compression (though not a disc) for more than a year. I know well the fear and attempts to control the healing. For me the fear takes the form of doubting thoughts, particularly thoughts that create a story line to go with the pain, such as “Oh, the pain is worse today – for sure that means it will never heal.” The mind finds clever convincing ways to justify this. Last night I decided to speak directly to the mind, “I understand and appreciate your concerns about the pain. However, I’m asking you to stop that now. Suspend your disbelief. Thank you.” After that, when I became aware of pain during the night, I could almost see the fearful thoughts like a flock of birds trying to descend. But, unlike before, they seemed to be at a distance, and as I recognized their attempt before they had a chance to land, the “flock” dissolved completely. This was followed by a shift in which I sensed a letting go of trying to control the healing, and instead turning the healing over to the body and its energy. It was great to find the validation in the action ship this morning; for sure it will be a process and the simple practices you demonstrated will help keep the process alive. Thank you. I also want to mention that when I am not in the grip of fear or “grasping” to be healthy, I’m better able to listen to my intuition and let it guide me about which therapies and treatments are helpful, appropriate (and even necessary) for me, and which are not. Thank you, again, for a wonderful action ship!

    Hi Laura,
    A wonderful reminder about the wisdom of our bodies, and that everything is energy. We can choose to harness this in a positive way, or not. I too struggled with two severely herniated discs when I was in my 20s. I underwent a recent MRI for my low back and discovered the disc herniation decreased significantly (from 7mm to 2mm) at both spots. So your action ship is right on; we need time, ways to keep the fear at bay, keep moving our bodies gently and trusting the divine wisdom our natural/physical selves possess to heal on its own.

  5. Hi Laura,

    Thank you so much for sharing. Great tips.
    I broke my lower back (spine injury) in 2005 and was numb from the navel and down. I took my around seven months to heal. Body Therapy, Yoga and inner work were the tools I used.

    Today I doesn’t have any back problems. It truly is possible to heal even the unthinkable :)

    Love Phoebe
