Did you know that roughly 50 million people suffer from chronic pain in the USA alone?
That means you probably know someone, possibly even yourself, who tackles this pain with a never ending line of medication.
But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if you could eliminate your pain by simply changing the way you breathe.
Dr. Amy Novotny founded the PABR® Institute with the mission to provide pain, stress and anxiety relief to those who seek a naturalistic form of treatment.
Her unique approach comes from 11 years of experience in orthopedics, sports, geriatrics, balance disorders, nerve injuries, and most recently, chronic pain; and influences from coursework at the Postural Restoration Institute gave her the foundation to develop this treatment method to address a wide variety of painful and restrictive conditions.
Her methods have helped countless people reduce and eliminate pain, stress, anxiety, orthopedic surgeries, sleep deprivation and the need for medications. She co-authored two Amazon #1 Best-Selling books Don’t Quit: Stories of Persistence, Courage and Faith and Success Habits of Super Achievers, which share her journey on how and why she developed the PABR® Method.
In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life, Amy and I discuss how she discovered the power of breathwork and why she is so passionate about helping others live pain-free, how she ran 6 marathons in 6 days, and how our nervous system is connected to our breath.
