According to Web MD there are up to six million women suffering with Vulvodynia. SIX MILLION!!!! And that’s just vulvodynia alone.
And I can tell you from my own experience and the experiences of my clients that there are still too many doctors who aren’t able to effectively diagnose or treat pelvic pain.
If your doctor has told you it’s all in your head, or hasn’t given you any effective solutions, you’re not alone!
Western medicine – as amazing as it is at identifying and treating acute conditions, injuries, infections, etc., – falls short when it comes to the trickier chronic pain syndromes – like vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, pudendal neuralgia, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain anywhere in the body.
Why? Because western medicine sees your body as a machine. You are not a machine.
You are a Mind – Body – Spirit – Emotion system of which your body is ONE PART. These parts of you can’t really be separated.
What’s going on with your thoughts, emotions, and spirit has a direct physiological impact on your body – the muscles, nerves and tissues. True, lasting and effective healing can only come from addressing all of these aspects of who you are.
