In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk about dystonia with Tom Seaman. Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that many people, including ourselves, have not heard of before. We found it interesting to hear Tom talk about his journey that dystonia is taking him on. We believe his story is inspiring to all who find themselves living with chronic pain or who are unable to physically move through life the way they want to. His openness and honesty was raw and we really appreciate how he was able to talk about the emotional trauma that was paired with his physical challenges.
I know that we have said this before, but this podcast must be shared with anyone who could benefit from getting just a glimpse of inspiration or hope because their story is similar to Tom’s. We hope that this podcast will make it into the hands of people who are living undiagnosed with dystonia and that they will be able to make massive changes and find better-coping skills to improve their quality of life.
Tom Seaman is a chronic pain and dystonia awareness advocate, health blogger, motivational speaker, and author of the book, Diagnosis Dystonia: Navigating the Journey, a comprehensive resource for anyone living with any chronic condition or other life challenge. He is also a Certified Professional Life Coach in the area of health and wellness. Tom volunteers for the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) as a support group leader, for WEGO Health as a patient expert panelist, and is a member and writer for the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network.
