Any physical discomfort that lasts for 3 months or longer is a struggle. It may be a subtle irritation that you notice throughout the day. Perhaps it only bothers you during specific movements. It could be so debilitating that it has a major effect on your quality of life, ability to work, and overall happiness.

If you are suffering from ongoing symptoms like this, it’s important to visit your chosen healthcare provider for medical advice. Oftentimes, however, treatment is difficult to obtain because answers are difficult to find.

Discover Healing focuses on energy work to clear the body of trapped emotions, negative energies, and faulty belief systems. We believe this work enables the body to perform its own incredibly powerful self-healing. This holistic approach to ongoing or chronic issues may or may not help you to feel better, but our certified Emotion Code®, Body Code™, and Belief Code® practitioners have shared countless success stories of clients who have experienced a profound difference with managing their discomfort after one or more energy healing sessions.

In this article, we’ll discuss the following:

  • Statistics in America

  • The Financial Burden of Persistent Discomfort

  • Persistent Discomfort as a Possible Symptom of Energy Imbalance

  • Natural Remedies For Physical Discomfort

Persistent Physical Discomfort is Common

Persistent discomfort is considered to last more than several months (3 to 6 months, but longer than “normal healing”). It’s a very common problem. Results from the

2012 National Health Interview Survey show that:

  • Nearly 25.3 million Americans (ages 18+) struggle with chronic troubles

  • Almost 40 million Americans (ages 18+) deal with severe physical discontent every day.

  • Most people with severe physical problems also experience multiple health issues, need more health care, and experience more disability than the average adult.

“The number of people who suffer from severe and chronic pain is striking. [The 2012 National Health Interview Survey] adds valuable new scope to our understanding of pain… It may help shape future research, development, and targeting of effective pain interventions, including complementary health approaches.”
Josephine P. Briggs, M.D., Director of NCCIH

For many, energy work, along with a number of alternative approaches to health care, can play a vital role in what Dr. Briggs describes as “complementary health approaches” for addressing the issue of chronic physical discomfort.

Persistent Physical Discomfort Results in More Financial Burden

The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) released a study that sheds a bright light on the financial burden that managing physical discomfort has on individuals and the country as a whole. Here are some interesting facts from that study.

  • As of 2010, the annual economic cost of chronic discomfort in the United States, including both treatment and lost productivity, is estimated to be anywhere between $560 and $635 billion.
  • Treatment for persistent physical discomfort requires: 1.) medical treatment and 2.) treatment for complications that arise from pain treatment or other ailments affected by pain management medications.

  • Being constantly bothered with physical discomforts lowers worker productivity, and because so many Americans suffer from chronic problems of some kind, this has a large effect on the US economy. The value of lost productivity due to this health issue ranges from $299 to $335 billion per year.

  • Those suffering from persistent physical discomfort can expect to pay an additional $300+ in health care costs per year.

  • Managing persistent physical suffering has increased average healthcare costs from $261 to $300 billion.

  • In 2008, the annual cost of treating chronic discomfort was greater than the annual costs of heart disease ($309 billion), cancer ($243 billion), and diabetes ($188 billion).

The MEPS study also shares that these estimates are on the conservative end because they exclude children, military personnel, those incarcerated, and nursing home residents. Is your current health plan working? Are you happy with the results? Are you able to afford your current treatments?

When it comes to effectively managing persistent physical aches, each individual has to consider the financial cost and if the solutions they’ve found are sustainable as a long term remedy.

Physical Distress May Be an Indication of An Energy Imbalance in the Body

At Discover Healing, our premise is that many of our physical afflictions may be attributed to our body’s stored energy. When past trauma or emotions are not fully processed, we believe they could remain trapped in the form of energy within the body. This stored energy may create blocks within the body that result in all kinds of physical symptoms and conditions.

While we’re still collecting more scientific confirmation for this theory, our experience in energy work has often shown amazing results in improving and even ridding a client of persistent health problems that they’ve had for years. We believe the key to enabling the body’s natural healing ability is creating the optimal conditions within the body, to allow the body and mind to work together.

Do Holistic Treatments Help?

Scouring the internet can give you hundreds of ideas for things to try, including alternative treatments, creams, herbal remedies, and more! While many of these holistic remedies may make you feel better, are they truly solving your problem? We believe that energy healing has the potential to rid your body of the energy blockages that may be preventing your recovery. With the Body Code, we can learn to use our natural intuition to locate the possible root cause of physical discomfort. We believe we can restore energetic balance to the body by releasing trapped emotions, and that our bodies may then use their unique and incredible ability to heal themselves. In short, we don’t claim to cure or treat chronic health issues. Our methods help to improve the body’s energetic balance so that it may resolve these issues on its own.

Common Holistic Remedies For Relieving Symptoms of Physical Discontent

Some holistic remedies for physical problems and natural methods may help ease symptoms. Holistic remedies have been used since ancient times, and continue to be used in modern life since they can be quite comforting and helpful to many people! With each item on the list below, we recommend you do your own research to see if it is a reasonable solution for you. See what resonates with you, and feels right. If you’re considering using alternative medicines, talk with your doctor first. It’s important to note that in some cases, self-treating with alternative medicine and avoiding or delaying standard care may be harmful to your health.

We urge you to seek the council from a trusted physician when you’re dealing with any type of health problem. They may be able to help you and rule out more serious medical complications. Speak with your doctor about your ideas, questions, and concerns when it comes to medication, whether you begin a new prescription remedy routine or wish to try herbal or holistic supplements. Your doctor should be made aware of any natural remedies you wish to explore because some may interfere with prescription medications you’re already taking.

Using Energy Healing for Treating Physical Discomfort

Among many ways to naturally treat persistent symptoms, energy healing has been used for centuries in many cultures. Certified Emotion Code, Body Code, and Belief Code practitioners use energy healing to locate trapped energies, remove blockages, and restore balance to the body and mind — which may facilitate a better atmosphere for the body’s self-healing to take over. Energy healing is something that anyone can learn to do for themselves. Discover Healing offers simple tools, free of charge, that allow each individual to learn how to find trapped emotions and energy imbalances within the body so they may be released.

Those seeking help from an energy healer can locate a Certified Body Code, Belief Code, or Emotion Code Practitioner here.

For a great example of energy healing in action, watch as Dr. Brad Nelson uses the Emotion Code to release a trapped emotion that could be contributing to Suzette’s hip and leg discomfort, which has been an issue for 4 years.

This information is not meant to replace the advice of your medical professional. We recommend seeking your doctors’ advice before implementing a new health routine. And not all will find immediate relief from their ailments by applying energy healing methods. But after many years of practicing this long-used modality, our practitioners have seen amazing things happen. From joint issues to emotional trauma, many people have used these energy healing principles to enable physical and emotional recovery from problems they’ve struggled with for years.
