Blog / 2014 / On the New Age Approach to Healing

March 3, 2014

If you’re interested in learning more about how little control we actually have in our lives, please check out Kent Greenfield’s book The Myth of Choice. And for a fun look at the role of chance, check out this recent report on NPR about how quality doesn’t necessarily drive popularity in art.

Also, the chronic illness that I’m referring to in this video is endometriosis. This condition is still not well understood, has no cure, and affects millions of women worldwide. March is endometriosis awareness month, and the two most important things that everyone needs to know about this illness are these:

  1. Early diagnosis is key to treatment.
  2. The major symptoms are pain with a woman’s monthly cycle and pain during sex. These symptoms can be caused by other diseases, but they are never normal. If a doctor who tells you they are, find a new doctor.

  3. If a person reveals that she has endometriosis, be gentle and listen to her.
  4. It isn’t easy living with chronic pain, and one of the more difficult aspects of this disease is feeling like no one understands or cares about what you’re going through.
