First, I want to let you know how helpful your web site has been to me. The information you provide is so comprehensive and spot on! I am a big believer as well in the emotional cause(s) of disease, and you have now turned me into a foam roller addict. So, thank you! I truly appreciate and admire your work.
My issue (well, one of them :-))is plantar fasciitis. I have been struggling with this for about 2 years, with a recent flare-up that is debilitating. I have been trying to pinpoint any emotional cause, but it is difficult for me to listen to my intuition. Stretching helps and I practice yoga regularly. I have been seeing a physical therapist who has taped my ankle and taught me some exercises, none of which has helped.
Personally, I am 48 years old, and a very busy mom, wife, and teacher, and generally very healthy. I am about 20 lbs overweight (recent stubborn peri-menopause weight gain).I tend to try to solve any health issues on my own as I have found that western medicine has not really helped me in the past. My father recently passed away, and I am wondering if I am subconsciously finding it difficult to "stand on my own two feet." Though my father did not support me financially I was able to ask his advice on anything and he always helped me.
I find that my PF feels better after yoga, but when my muscles contract again after being stretched the pain returns. I have read your article on PF and would love to hear additional advice you may have, including any exercises - maybe weight training for strength? I really miss walking! Thank you!!!
