Hope For Pain Ministries began in 2010 as a ministry to support those suffering with chronic pain. We serve those that suffer with chronic illness providing tips and treatment options to assist in the daily trials of living with chronic pain. I am a child of a parent with chronic pain. Children with parents that suffer with chronic pain daily see their parents struggle with excruciating pain that is relieved often only with prayers. We feel the effects of opiate addiction, and watch family members deal with thoughts of hopelessness.
To know me and my husband, is to know that we love the concept of integrative health. My husband studies relentlessly about the healing power of foods and through his study I have absorbed and developed my own opinions about nutrition. As a professional, I pass “gas” for a living. I am a certified nurse anesthetist, spending hours professionally and academically studying pain and chronic illness. Every day I see acute pain. I care for those that suffer with chronic pain, and I see the effects of chronic illness. In the world of anesthesia, we use the term multimodal analgesia when referring to integrative medicine. Multimodal Anesthesia, is the concept of treating acute pain with a multidisciplinary approach , maximizing the analgesic and synergistic effect of relieving pain at different pain receptor sites. Integrative health uses the same approach. It places the patient at the center and addresses the emotional, the spiritual, mental, physical and environmental influences that affect a person’s health.
Hope for Pain is about placing our patient’s at the center and providing spiritual hope through God’s Word through multimodal approaches to healing. I believe God has provided so many ways to help us to heal our bodies and to keep them healthy. Explore with me on this website our observations and study to improve your life for the better.
