“Many people spend their health gaining wealth and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.” AJ Materis

While editing the second in the Dial A Guru series of personal, professional and business self-help co-authored books, aptly called Get Out of Your Own Way, how to overcome self-sabotaging habits at home and in the workplace, I suffered with a bad back.

It started with sciatica. I can tell you that the pain starts in the buttocks and goes down the leg meaning you can’t sit, or lie down. Imagine not being able to go to bed to sleep for days. Sleep deprivation is an effective form of torture for a very good reason, you slowly go insane. And as anyone who’s had sciatica will tell you (and I’ve since met plenty who have), it’s pure agony; you don’t know what to do, or where to put yourself.
