There are many aspects of my autoimmune disease that have made me feel like 29 going on 90. But more so than the inability to function on less than 8 hours of sleep, having to travel with several pill boxes on my person, and getting winded climbing a simple flight of stairs, what’s made me feel the most terrifyingly old is all the times I’ve thrown out my back.
Ironically, one of those times was last week as I was shooting photos of these banana birthday muffins. It’s ironic not just because it was a few days before I turned 29, but because I’ve had a Wellness Wednesday on back health on the schedule for over two months! Needless to say, the timing was eerily perfect.
If you’ve ever suffered from back pain, you can’t miss this week’s hangout with guest expert Jesse Cannone, founder of The Healthy Back Institute and author of The 7-Day Back Pain Cure. Jesse’s mission as a former back pain sufferer is to help others live pain free without surgery and pharmaceuticals. Tune in to hear about simple fixes that can save you from a world of back pain, including lifestyle tweaks like cutting down on your high heel wearing and not putting your wallet or phone in your back pocket. I’ll have more of Jesse’s tips coming at you in a few weeks, so stay tuned!
