When I was on the Dr. Oz show, the second segment we talked about inflammation and how foods could either help reduce or cause inflammation in the body. Let me make a point here before discussing certain foods that cause or reduce inflammation in the gut and bloodstream.
In 2005 I began corresponding with Robert Schleip about his research and curiosity of the fascial system. I’d been applying hands-on modalities for many years at that point and after doing a dissection with Gil Hedley, my understanding of the human body radically shifted. Since that year, Robert has been sending me information as it occurs in the research community giving me access to a world I would never even know existed. He’s been one of my greatest allies in my pursuits to learn more about what I am able to do with my hands on approaches and in the development of MELT.
I’m in the first leg of my 26 city book signing tour. My MELT Method book is gaining some notoriety quite quickly it seems. Although I began developing MELT over a decade ago, it’s taken many years to develop a language, products, and now, a book anyone can now use to help get out and stay out of the chronic pain cycle.
Do you suffer from chronic pain? We have all experienced acute trauma in some way or other. Bumping your head on a cabinet, missing a step, slipping on ice, falling, tripping, getting hit by an object, cutting a finger… acute trauma is tough to avoid. Like my mom always says, “Accidents happen, that’s why they call them accidents. You don’t know they are coming so you can’t really avoid them.”
Today, for the very first time on national television, human fascia from a living body will be viewed by all that tune in on the Dr. Oz show. I’ve been very privileged to be a part of a growing network of “fascianatos” – people desiring to understand how the human body sustains its integrity, longevity, and overall good health. Science is just scratching the surface to explain this relatively unstudied element of the human body – fascia.
On February 15th, this coming Friday, for the very first time on national television, human fascia from a living body will be viewed by all that tune in, not just on any TV show, but on the #1 daytime show in the US. I am going to be on the Dr. Oz show. HOLY COW!!!!
Pain is a construct of the mind. The brain creates the sense of pain as a way to let you know something is wrong and the brain can’t figure out what it is. It’s trying to point out a communication error in your body so you will stop and help out. This is an amazing, protective response the brain produces as a way to preserve life.
Last week I was scheduled to head to Miami and Tampa to begin the MELT Method Book tour. I started in NYC with 7 sold-out events. In the midst however, I was notified that Dr. Oz had asked me to appear on his show. Due to this once in a lifetime opportunity, my team and I quickly cancelled the Florida week and media to remain in NYC for a few extra days to shoot the show.
It was fantastic. Dr. Oz let me show living fascia to his viewers for the very first time. Dr. J.C.Guimberteau's footage from Interior Architectures was viewed as I discussed what the connective tissue system was. Then we discussed anti-inflammatory type foods and showed him some key MELT moves. Two days later I set off to resume my book tour.
I'm currently in Illinois doing 4 events. What's great is that my extended family, aunts, uncles, and cousins are here to set me on my way. I've met some wonderful people on this tour who have all tried MELTing for the very first time. I am excited to see the response from those who have never experienced self-care methods to use at home to help eliminate chronic pain.
Tomorrow, I have one more event and then, I head to LA to do a number of events in LA, Redlands, and Santa Clarita before heading to San Diego.
MELT is catching the eye of a great deal of local radio and TV shows. I will continue to post the events and segments as they pop up.
If you are in the west coast, check out where my next stops will be before heading back to the east coast (Tampa) to continue the pursuit to help people get out and stay out of chronic pain! Thanks to all who attended the events we have had thus far.
Over the past decade, research is showing that women have a higher tendency to be diagnosed with a chronic pain than men. So does that mean women are more prone to pain or is it that women just seem to seek out help when they have it?
We don't have to look too far back in history to see that our culture has shifted towards a more sedentary one as modern technology has gotten us doing more in a day, but doing less in our body.
