Plasticity

In my pain management classes on Thursdays we talk often about the plasticity of the brain.  If you have not read or heard people in science and medicine talk about this subject, do yourself a favor and read, "The Brain That Changes It Self" by Norman Doidge, M.D.

The last several courses I have studied, everything from meditation to chronic pain to yoga have all included lectures on plasticity of the brain.  For the past few months I have been working on myself, rewiring my brain to function even with the damage from the Meniere's.

This brain science has been used with stroke victims, addictions, chronic pain, so many different health concerns.  The more I study about it, the more fascinating it becomes because of the possibilities.

I am exhausted, as always on Thursdays and that is ok.  Thursdays give me the opportunity to see results, good results from my teaching.

Tomorrow be kind, spread joy and at least once, laugh out loud.
