A US woman who lost her limbs to a flesh-eating bacteria is using meditation to manage her pain instead of drugs.
While Aimee Copeland, 24, is still in a serious condition, doctors have told her father she should be out of intensive care in two or three weeks, NYDailyNews.com reports.
Her father, Andy Copeland, says his daughter has been in talks with doctors at the Doctors Hospital of Augusta, Georgia, about using meditation to manage pain.
"She went through one of the dressing changes without any kind of pain medication at all the other day," he said. "It's incredible. She chose to meditate through it."
Ms Copeland, a Georgia psychology student, had her hands and feet amputated after she developed necrotising fasciitis after cutting her leg on a homemade flying fox on May 1.
