What I learned from a Toothache

A few weeks ago I had a really bad toothache.  I went to my regular dentist who took an x-ray and told me there was nothing wrong. He said I should keep doing body work because it might be referred pain from my neck.

Me being me I tried everything that whole week. I got  adjusted,  I had acupuncture and went to various other healers,  all to no avail.  On Sunday morning I woke up in even worse pain with my subconscious screaming at me: “It’s your tooth!”

Since nothing I was doing was helping,  I was feeling rather hopeless. I decided that Monday morning I would go to see another dentist that my dentist  recommended to see if I might need a root canal.

With nothing left to do until then, I decided to read the book that my meditation teacher had recommended, “Dissolving Pain” by Les Fehmi.  I thought I might as well try it. I read that book from cover to cover and I have to say it was literally a miracle.  I can’t say enough about it. By Monday morning, when I woke up, I had no pain whatsoever.

I made the dentist appointment anyway but I was wondering if I should even go.  I went and he decided that I needed a root canal. I was living in fear of that pain coming back, so I was gladly about to do it. He started drilling to get rid of my old filling,  stopped and said,  “Bad news, can’t do a root canal. Your tooth is cracked.” Then he had to send me to yet another dentist who extracted the tooth.

Since I’ve had my tooth pulled, I have not had any pain.   I have been doing the exercises from the book for occasional aches and pains when I feel like I need it.  I highly recommend this book. I have recommended it to many patients and have gotten great feedback.

First, of course make sure you know why you have the pain.  Pain is the body’s way of telling you there is something wrong.  Once you know what it is and are taking the necessary steps towards healing, this book is invaluable.

I took time off

I took two weeks off this summer and went to Israel. I had not taken two weeks off since the last time I went there fifteen years ago. One thing I learned was that I’m going to take a two-week vacation every  summer. It took me about a week and a half to unravel. When I finally let go, I felt like I dropped a big wet fur coat I was carrying around and didn’t even know it. It made the rest of my summer feel much more peaceful.

I took time off from blogging, but I’m back!
