Are Cortisone Shots for You? A Holistic Approach to Dealing with an Injury

One of the main principles of being healthy and fit is to first and foremost follow the rules of nature.

This is why before taking any medications, pills, supplements or undergoing any procedures, I recommend first being sure that you are living in accordance with these natural rules to ensure your body has the proper materials and is in the proper environment necessary for optimal health to occur.

A good example of this is when considering getting cortisone shots for a shoulder injury. Although steroid shots are a common medical “answer” to a very painful and common problem, they are far from ideal, as they are not without considerable drawbacks and risks, not to mention, they do nothing to correct the root cause of the dysfunction in the first place!

The #1 thing is you have to have an accurate evaluation to get to the ROOT CAUSE of the problem. Cortisone shots do not fix the cause (although yes, they can decrease the immediate pain).

In fact, cortisone shots are known to promote:

  • Joint infection.
  • Nerve damage.
  • Thinning of skin and soft tissue around the injection site.
  • Temporary flare of pain and inflammation in the joint.
  • Tendon weakening or rupture.
  • Thinning of nearby bone (osteoporosis)
  • Whitening or lightening of the skin around the injection site.


Things to Try Before Getting a Cortisone Shot 

1. Rest the area – avoiding any activities that cause pain.
2. Try Traumeel® in the form of injections, ointments, tablets or gels can be used to reduce inflammation. It is a homeopathic treatment that doesn’t have the same harmful effects as cortisone injections.
3. Get a food sensitivity test and eliminate any sensitive foods to minimize inflammation. Eat a diet that is correct for you and make sure all your food is organic and avoid all processed foods, especially those containing, sugar, grains, caffeine and alcohol.
4. Only drink properly filtered water or mineral water from glass bottles and drink at least 1/2 your bw ounces/day.
5. Use anti-inflammatory foods (or supplements containing) such as turmeric, ginger and boswellia.
6. Use Deep Blue by doTERRA or Blu Emu lotion
7. Watch your biomechanics and daily posture and alignment uses – at your desk, car, table, sofa and sleeping!

8. Get a therapeutic massage
