One of the leading causes of most aches and pains is being overweight. Our bodies are not designed to cater to the extra weight which should be a no brainer. When I see or hear people complaining about how they threw their back out time and time again, I just shake my head and think silently to myself because no one wants to hear they’re not healthy or that being overweight is contributing to their pain issues.
When I was 40 lbs overweight, I had constant knee pain that would occur every time I had my knee bent. It would only go away when I straightened it out which is not something you can do if you’re traveling on a plane, in a car or any other place with tight knit quarters. It was not fun! I decided I needed to do something about it, like lose 40lbs which helped tremendously as I do not have any more knee pain!
There are other natural ways to reduce aches and pains as well, for instance; MELT Method Training.
The MELT Method® (MELT) is a self-treatment technique that helps people get out and stay out of chronic pain in just ten minutes a day. When pain becomes chronic, the body’s natural state of stability and balance declines. When a body isn’t stable, it can’t be efficiently mobile. By learning how to MELT, you can learn to actively partake in decreasing stuck stress daily so it doesn’t accumulate and cause symptoms that sap your vitality and energy.
To effectively do the MELT Method for natural pain relief, you’ll need to buy soft body rollers and balls in order to do the techniques in the book. Doing this method quickly re-hydrates connective tissue which then releases the bodies long-held tension. MELT also re-balances the nervous system and boosts the body’s natural healing and repair mechanisms.

I think I am going to have order the book so I can try this out for myself. I woke up with hip pain this morning and is still bothering me at this moment. It’s probably from being 33 weeks pregnant, but still, doesn’t hurt to try!
