What is chronical pain?
How do you recognize, heal and prevent this?
As you get older, pain in its different forms may not be much of a stranger anymore. Chronical (physical) pain is a syndrome that may start in a specific region in the body, but can slowly expand to other regions of the body. Suffering from chronical pain could hinder a vital, energetic and healthy third chapter of life!
The good news however, is that chronical pain (most of the time) can be reversed and changed into healing.
What is chronical pain exactly? What is chronical pain connected to? What does chronical pain do to your mental and emotional state of mind? And what are causes of chronical pain?
Armand ‘(Toek) Hagedoorn, physiatrist (rehab & phys med) and founder of the Mendel Foundation has seen a lot of people who were suffering while getting old. But at the same time, he has seen many aging with utter grace. This sparked a keen interest in how to “Age like a Champion”.
Hagedoorn sees it as his personal mission to share his knowledge, experience and wisdom with people, so that everybody who goes into their third age, can take advantage of those tools, tips and tricks and it eventually may lead to a lifestyle. We were not able to take and retake the video repeatedly, and English is not Hagedoorn’s native language: please bear with us!
