Relationship Stress? Pain Is A Symptom, Communication Is Key To Health

Is hidden internal stress from neck and back pain affecting how well you communicate with others?

By Dr. Thomas Polucki 

Relationship stress is a symptom, like neck pain or back pain, of a communication problem. For happy and healthy relationships, we know communication is key. That’s why if you’re experiencing stress in a relationship, whether it’s at work or at home, the problem could be the way you express yourself in your communication with others. 

Take a quick reading on how you communicate with others. Ask yourself a few questions and be honest with your responses. 

Do you get what you want and, more importantly, make the people who give it to you happy in the process?Relationship Stress? Pain Is A Symptom, Communication Is Key To Health

Are you easily irritated by the actions of the people you need to work with? 

Do you have a hard time accepting compliments or criticism? 

Do you blame others for your situation? 

Do you suffer with or take medication for:

  • Headaches?
  • Back pain?
  • Neck pain?
  • Allergies?
  • Recurring infections?
  • Digestive issues like acid reflux, heartburn, indigestion? Irritable bowel, constipation, diarrhea, gas?
  • Sleeping problems?
  • Weight management?

These are all symptoms of internal stress, which may be caused by one or a combination of factors: 

  1. Inappropriate nutritional choices for your unique metabolic needs. No matter how well you think you eat, those choices may not be right for you. Wouldn’t it be nice to find out, with absolute certainty, which food or supplement or deficiency is the one causing your cravings, energy and mood swings? Fad diets or extreme exercise crazes won’t help you determine the cause, just continue to treat the symptoms.

  2. Subtle chemical imbalances may also produce internal stress and can come from inappropriate nutrition, medications and even mild aches or chronic neck pain or back pain. While we live in a pop-a pill society, many of our conveniences are coming back to hurt us because we never found out or treated the root cause(s) of the things that make us feel worse than we should.

Cleansing the detoxification pathways in the digestive tract, liver, kidneys, lungs and skin and learning how to make better choices about natural, long-term, less toxic stress reduction techniques can improve your body’s internal communication dramatically. 

  1. Mild to moderate chronic stress in the connective tissues, especially combined with back pain and neck pain, creates a double whammy of the physical stress on the nerve communication system and chemical communication system because the spine is inflamed. These often undetected short circuits that contribute to back pain and neck pain are a constant distraction from clear thinking, feeling good and communicating well.

When there is internal stress, every external stress – just from everyday life – can cause more damage and irritation, making minor communication events feel like an all-out attack to your system. 

This internal communication stress makes external communication with family, friends and coworkers much harder than it has to be. By resolving hidden internal stresses, all communications and relationships can be a lot easier. 

If you could dramatically reduce internal stress, neck pain or back pain without drugs, surgery, needles, spine-twisting or bone-cracking, do you think that would improve the quality of your life?
