Liberty through Drug Free Pain Relief
By Liberty V Justice | Feb 11, 2016
It is medically proven that pain can be reduced and even eliminated with yoga instead of medications.
In 2014, I lost most of my mobility. I couldn’t walk very far. I couldn’t even climb the steps to get on the bus. I could barely move my arms. Even my wallet was hard for me to lift. I was very dependent on others for almost everything. I begged God to heal me. He heals me to this day through wisdom and having the courage to ask.

Eventually, through consistency, it did strengthen my body. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Writing from Newburgh Seminary and am now walking AND running. If you’re not a regular reader check out one of my running blogs here.
There were other factors but a healthy diet and yoga were the first two things I started, after I got out of the toxic environment.
