“The mind and the body are inextricably entwined, and rarely are their inseparability clearer than when we're under some kind of mental pressure.”
– Jeffrey Kluger

It’s easy to be stressed when you’re dealing with pain, but stress is terrible for our central nervous systems and can cause an increase in neurological pain/symptoms. Your brain, spine, and nerves hate stress. Its effects can reach nearly every system in your body from your Central Nervous System (CNS), Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS), Parasympathetic Nervous System (PSNS), Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), to your Enteric Nervous System (ENS). Even your Immune System sees its effects and concludes it as an invader that it must attack, which not only lowers your immune response to other things that it might encounter, but it responds by creating inflammation... and inflammation just about always equates pain!
Are you passionate stress reduction? Do you know your stuff when it comes to the importance of reducing stress to help reduce pain (especially neuropathic pain)? Do you want to make a real difference in the Chiari community? If so, joining our Destressing Wise Team might be the perfect place to help make a difference!

We are currently looking to organize a team committed to helping patients learn the benefits of eating right, and how it can reduce pain and improve symptoms.
