p.s. There are lots of other foods you need to eliminate... but, for me, sugar is #1... my biggest problem, actually...
Strategy #2: Start an "Auto-Immune Paleo" Eating Routine
Choose Organic Food [although the term "organic" has been perverted by the for profit food
industry, who will often use the term “natural” to imply
“Organic”] [good information
here for USA]
2 Strategies to Overcome The Effects Of Deadly Drugs
Here's another "truth".
Conventional medicine is at its best at the extremes of a medical condition:
the start of an acute disease
a life-threatening condition
However, with chronic diseases, conventional medicine tends to look at symptoms, only. What chronic pain sufferers need is someone to look for root causes... That approach requires a functional medicine practitioner.
Strategy #3: Wean yourself off medicines that no longer work and/or have side effects worse than what they are supposed to cure.
"Let's see if this one will work!"
Strategy #4: Do your own due diligence, and request/demand/obtain medication that will "attack" the root cause[s] of your chronic pain.
Research, take notes, make comparisons, make choices.
2 Strategies to Overcome The Effects Of Poor Lifestyle
Ancient Roman politicians catered to voters by providing "bread and circuses", namely free grain and cheap entertainment at different coliseums.
The cynics amongst us, now, [me, for instance] believe that fast food, TV, video games, and the like are being used to stupefy and keep the populace subdued... a modern version of the ancient practice.
Strategy #5: STOP
sitting on your butt, smoking cigarettes, and boozing too much, while
you watch TV, or play video games, or spend too much time on your mobile
phone and/or computer.
Strategy #6: Do as many of these as you can:
read real books
Start an exercise program
Meditate, rather than rot your brain!
Read books, rather than watch TV
2 Strategies to Overcome The Effects Of Hazardous Chemicals
We live in a noxious stew of man-made chemicals. I read an estimate that we are exposed to over 50,000 a day... and the count grows all the time.
Just think of all of these that we eat, breathe, bathe in, put on, clean our houses, etc. etc. etc.
Many of these have never been tested for their level of toxicity for humans.
Strategy #7: Identify and get rid of dangerous chemicals
2 Strategies to Overcome The Effects Of Emotional Trauma
Does your stomach ache, and your head hurt when something bothers you emotionally? Is there someone who always "stresses you out" whenever you encounter them? Do you get almost physically ill when you have to visit the boss... because you just know that it will be unpleasant?
Strategy #11: As much as possible... and this is tough to do... rid yourself of these emotional stressors. HOWEVER, I know that as long as you are around others, there will be people and situations that will "traumatize" you. Minimize your time with these.
Ideally [I guess], you could "run away" to some lovely tranquil place, and never again be subjected to all that stress. But not too likely for most of us.
Strategy #12: Use meditation and Emotional Freedom Techniques to reduce the impact of psychological/emotional stressors.
