Reflexology Helps Recovery
It all started when my father, a healthy 72-year-old, developed what seemed to be an infection in his gums. Unfortunately, a trip to the dentist and a root canal didn't solve the problem. He was given antibiotics that caused an allergic reaction, followed by another root canal and oral surgery. During one procedure, he felt a distinct pain radiate from his tooth down to his spine, eventually settling in his legs. Pain, numbness and burning developed in his calves and feet.
Doctors and specialists couldn't offer any explanation, and he deteriorated further until he was on morphine and bedridden. I enrolled in a reflexology course and began treatments on him. The first noticeable change was that he was less nervous and could drive again. After more treatments, he felt stronger.
I believe the dental work played a big part in his condition, but doctors don't see a connection. Except for some minor burning in his legs, my father now has a quality of life that he wouldn't have had if not for the benefits of reflexology.
