Most of my patients tend to think that pain is okay as long as he or she can tolerate it. Only when it gets intolerable do they feel the need to do something about it. Sometimes, the patient even wears the pain as a badge of courage!
Things couldn't be farther than the truth. Pain increases Cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that causes:
- Weight Gain
- Increases Blood Pressure
- Decreases Your Immune System
- Decreases the Grey Matter of Your Brain.
So literally, Pain makes your Brain Smaller!!! Resolve to live better in 2011. Resolve to make a difference in your life.
