What To Do for Fast Recovery from Over Worked Muscles and Pain


I have never fractured a bone in my body and thought “OMG this really hurts!” So instead of going to the emergency room, which most normal people would do (you know I am not the norm) I took action and did everything from praying, visualization, affirmations to expedite the healing. Yep I know I am not normal. Within 48 hours the pain level went from a 9.5 to 2.0.


So this is what I did:


#1 Cryotherapy:


Ice my neck several times through the day

Cold shower – to help with pain and inflammation


#2 Supplements:


  • Turmeric- 1.5 to 2.5 mg

  • Omega 3’s - 4 to 5 g/daily

  • L-glutamine – 2 to 3 g/daily

  • Magnesium – 200 to 400 mg/daily

  • Potassium – 35 mg/hourly


#3 Chiropractic Adjustment


Hands on treatment to realign the vertebrae in the neck


#4 Physical therapy:


Electrical stimulation and ultrasound to help relax muscles prior to adjustment


#5 Epsom Salt soak with essential oils:

  • Lavender – calming effect

  • Peppermint- anti-inflammatory, pain relieving

  • Sage – anti-inflammatory, circulatory stimulant

  • Wintergreen – anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, analgesic/anesthetic

  • Rosemary - anti-inflammatory, mental clarity and concentration


#6 Anti-inflammatory diet

  • Organic vegetables

  • Small amount of organic fruit

  • Sustainably raised animal products (hormone free, free range, pastured raised)

  • Wild caught fish

  • Bone broth
