The PR Newswire this morning spoke about a potentially revolutionary treatment for Chronic Pain that has been featured on Live with Regis and Kelly. The MELT method, designed by Sue Hitzmann, is being marketed as a way to target different types of chronic pain while making your body stronger. It also addresses connective tissue, or the dehydration of connective tissue being a root cause of most chronic pain. I find this interesting, as I have severe Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and have had issues with connective tissue for many years now… Sue Hitzmann asks us how much water we consume regularly? Do you drink ENOUGH water? I don’t think I do… I used to drink at least 2 litres of water a day, but when I am in a flare, I tend not to want to put anything in my body, including water.
I took a look at her website, and I must say, it looks like a well researched and easy program to follow. The things I thought would be beneficial are a) It is all natural, and doesn’t involve putting yet ANOTHER medication into our bodies. b) It is self-treatment, so on days when it is impossible to get out of the house, you don’t have to go to a practitioner outside of the home for treatment. c) The MELT Method speaks about the 4 R’s that the program is built upon – reconnect, rebalance, release, rehydrate… all simple concepts, but I think ALL of these things are issues for everyone pain or not.
I just wanted to pass the info along…. This isn’t a formal review of this product, nor am I trying to sell this product. I am simply trying to pass along information that someone might find useful in their journey to finding proper treatment for their chronic pain. I do believe that there is also a MELT Facebook group, if anyone is interested in checking it out to gain more info…
I don’t believe in MAGIC cures people – I have learned the hard way after spending thousands of dollars on every modality of treatment, every tool, every gadget that I could get my hands on when my life fell apart… But that isn’t to say that there are not valid forms of treatment out there that can help us manage better in our day-to-day lives.
I’d be interested in trying this method out, it is akin to physiotherapy at home, and I think it could be useful. there is definitely a SCIENCE behind this method.
Happy Monday to everyone! I hope you all had a delicious weekend 😉
