She Left Trauma – and Chronic Pain – in Her Past

“The physical relief I felt during meditation was something out of the ordinary, but the magic happened when I started to notice I was becoming whole.”

Chronic pain had dominated Zanobia’s life for 15 years. She tried physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, and multiple medications and doctors, but nothing worked – until she read one of Dr Joe’s books.

Her curiosity aroused, Zanobia next tried one of Dr Joe’s meditations, describing it as a “phenomenal experience” – unlike anything she’d ever felt before. She soon began a daily practice, increasing her commitment a little at a time.

Zanobia began to realize the pain stemmed from childhood trauma she’d been carrying for more than 45 years. She’d entered the work wanting to change her physical condition, but when she shifted the focus to changing herself, “the magic happened.” Zanobia learned to let go of anger, open her heart, and love herself for the first time.  “We are our own healers,” she says. “The medicine is inside us.”
