Finding Relief Naturally with the MELT Method

As the years have gone on by, and I have had kids, I look back and see that I am not as small as I once was, years ago, before I had kids. I know that I am not as active as I was in my early 20's, when I had a metabolism where I could eat what I wanted, when I wanted, work out without having any pains, and keep a very nice, ideal size. Those years were carefree, I could go out with friends, shop like it was no bodies business, and eat all of the cake and chocolate I wanted.

When I had my first baby, I was able to get back to a size I was happy with after having her. I also seemed to have that metabolism that I had pre-pregnancy, so I did not see a need to change my eating habits. It was not until we had our second child, did I see the weight I had gained, make a permanent residence on my body.

I had been on bed rest for the majority of the pregnancy, I ate and ate and did not have any exercise to try to balance things out, and with that extra weight along with being pregnant, I developed back issues. The pain in my back did not go away either. I kept most of the weight on, and it became a chronic pain, where walking around, put a strain on my back.

This back pain not only caused issues when I would walk around, but also when I would sleep, causing me to toss and turn. I seemed to just accept that pain, as it became a part of my everyday life. Where my day would consist of taking some over the counter pain relievers so I could stay on my feet and tolerate the issue at hand. Then I had our third child, where once again, I found myself on bed rest.

I found that due to my experience with our middle child, I watched more of what I ate, and I did not gain as much during the pregnancy, but regardless, I had extra strain on my already pained back. With the bed rest, also came the discomfort that not only affected my back but the rest of my body, including my knees, making being pregnant, not very fun. I learned shortly after having our third child that the extra strain along with limited activity, caused my chronic back pain to go to a whole new level, and it was then when I realized I did not, and would not continue to just live with it. So to make things better for me, I decided to seek out ways to get natural pain relief

The first step to help ease the pains was to lose weight. It was frustrating, because that once amazing metabolism I had was gone, and the weight was coming off very slowly, but I knew that if I wanted to change things, the weight had to start coming off. I am still working on getting that weight off, and I have found that even the smallest slack, can cause me to take some big steps back. 

This has been a long process, and is not an easy one, and in my journey to not only lose weight but also find a way to eliminate the pain from the strain in my back and knees, naturally, I have come across a method called the MELT Method.

With a MELT Method roller, I can find ways to get lower back pain relief, naturally. This method is one that when followed, can help with bringing balance back into my body and reduce stress on areas where chronic pain exists. Helping so I can gain more awareness when it comes to my own body, and help so I can get that energy back! The MELT Method is one that I am looking into and one that I will recommend to others who also find themselves dealing with chronic pain, who want to find a natural way to relieve that pain!

Never heard of MELT before. I'm lucky that I don't have chronic pain.

I also like using natural methods to help me with back pain, and the Melt method roller sounds like a great way to help me get the relief I need. I will have to take a look at the site!

I love how MELT can help with flexibility & mobility, posture, the results of exercise, range of motion, sleep & digestion, and overall well-being. Sounds incredible.

This is the first time I'm hearing of MELT. I had a hard time losing the baby weight also.
