What is the Message of Your Pain?

Did you ever wonder why you don't get better, despite the medication, the surgery or when the doctor tells you that he/she can't find a reason you are in pain?

Emotional trauma is stored in the cells of your body, your body remembers even when you don't.

This may be a new concept for you, but I am challenging you to step back and look at your pain with a new set of eyes. Ask yourself, "what is my body trying to tell me?" 

Below are some common physical complaints and the possible emotional connection
