The medical community is now realizing that cortisone shots can lead to rapid joint deterioration and osteoarthritis. Years ago a link had also been found between cortisone and the development of osteoporosis (Purdy).
Luckily for me, as an intuitive, I instinctively knew to decline numerous suggestions to get cortisone shots for a painful toe joint condition. Genetics and the practice of daily Ashtanga yoga aerial-style jump backs both contributed to my ultra-inflamed and aching toe joints.
Since then, I have successfully used sound, vibration and energy medicine to address my foot pain and so much more. I am happy to report living an active life once again doing yoga (sans jump backs) without the need to continue wearing clunky orthotics or the need to take bone degenerative or highly addictive pain medication such as Oxycontin and Vicodin. Although cortisone doesn’t fall into the category of an addictive drug, the medical community is now realizing that cortisone use can dangerously lead to many bone related complications such as degeneration and osteoarthritis (Donnelly).
At The Sound Code, there are two different program that address both pain and inflammation. The 3-in-1 Vibration program offers specific audible and inaudible frequencies that are safe for diminishing inflammation in the body. The program includes energy work such as Reiki and bio-energetic emotional clearing along with focused intention setting. The integration of all these components sets a strong foundation for healing. Sound Energy + Intention = Healing. The 2-In-1 Vibration Therapy program is for those who wish to forego the emotional clearing element. Both programs are complimentary to western medicine or an alternative to it for those seeking a drug-free, non-addictive, non-invasive and holistic approach to managing pain.
