A Guide to Self-Healing from Chronic Pain

Contrary to popular belief, the most frequent causes of neuromuscular, joint, or skeletal pain can be traced to your lifestyle: unconscious habits that involve the way you breathe, stand, and move and the way you store physical and emotional stress in your tissues. Given this fact, if you suffer from chronic pain, or treat people suffering from chronic pain, you may need to consider replacing expensive, often inefficient pain treatment with self-help methods for reversing the way physical, mental, and emotional stresses affect your muscles, joints, and bones. Effortless Pain Relief presents a unique mind-body program for overcoming chronic pain, developed by acclaimed alternative health-care practitioner Dr. Ingrid Bacci. In Effortless Pain Relief, you'll find a simple explanation of how stress creates chronic pain, along with clear, simple, and powerful self-help techniques for reducing and even eliminating pain. The guiding principle in this program for self-healing from chronic pain is to develop greater awareness of your body and sensitivity to it. You can change your lifestyle habits -- and eliminate your pain -- by adopting body awareness techniques that eliminate tension. Chapter by chapter, Effortless Pain Relief shows you how to release deep physical, mental, and emotional stresses through simple breathing techniques, to reduce consciously the effort and tension in your muscles, and to master and eliminate stressful emotions like fear and anger by learning to control the physical tensions that these feelings create. Dr. Bacci also guides you in a process that will allow you to let go of mental and emotional attitudes that unconsciously create stress and physical pain. She shows you how to release emotional conflicts that contribute to pain and teaches you how to conquer the fear of physical pain -- which can actually trigger pain. Dr. Bacci cites numerous case studies from the thousands of patients she has helped during the past fifteen years. She also tells the extraordinary story of her own complete recovery from three years of being bedridden and crippled from a severe case of the chronic pain syndrome fibromyalgia. The curative techniques through which she healed herself, and with which she has helped her thousands of clients achieve freedom from pain, are now available for everyone in Effortless Pain Relief. Dr. Bacci's groundbreaking, accessible program offers deceptively simple yet profoundly effective ways to leave pain behind, enhance your vitality, and find an effortless route to a pain-free life.

Why We Hurt and How We Heal

A Comprehensive Functional Medicine Guide to Healing Chronic Pain

WHY WE HURT -AND THE WELLNESS APPROACH TO HEALING YOUR PAIN is very different from other books on the market today that address chronic pain disorders. First, the perspective of the author is unique; a chiropractor with years of experience treating chronic pain naturally, who developed disabling back pain that no clinician was able to help. This combined with his daughter's severe fibromyalgia instigated his return to academics to understand chronic pain disorders and become a Board-certified neurologist. Second, the book is singular because WHY WE HURT takes you on a fascinating journey that helps you to better comprehend the workings of your body and is dysfunction, from a more holistic perspective. Through understanding how pain is vital to our survival and that its appearance signals dysfunction within the body that must be properly addressed, the reader is motivated to no longer content to just cover-up their pain. Thirdly, the book exposes the reader to the uncomfortable reality of relying on drugs for pain relief and then empowers them with specific practical natural strategies to heal their pain. But even more then this, the book clearly demonstrates to the reader that to live a healthy pain-free life one must attend to the health of their environment as well as the wellness of their inner ecology, for they are not two but one. Original to this book is its exploration of the underlying factors that set the stage for chronic pain and how these same risk factors are involved in the development of degenerative diseases. Our Standard American Diet (SAD) and modern lifestyle causes metabolic changes such as, chronic 'silent' inflammation and insulin resistance that can lead to degenerative disease such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. One of the first indications of this metabolic dysfunction is the development of chronic or recurring myofascial pain disorders. Therefore, this book not only points out the urgency of actually healing chronic myofascial pain but shows the reader on how to accomplish this step-by-step through diet, nutrition, exercise and the use of specific herbal medicines. This book is unparalleled with its special section that educates the reader on how to self-treat the specific pain-causing muscle knots of various muscle and joint pain disorders of the back, neck and extremities. Through years of clinical experience the author, utilizing diagrams and descriptive text, instructs the reader on how to effectively relieve the source of their pain in common conditions such as chronic low back pain, rotator cuff syndrome of the shoulder, stiff neck and tension headaches as well as the global pain of fibromyalgia. By utilizing items found commonly or specific trigger point therapy pools the author gives a detailed explanation of the physical removal of myofascial trigger points, the primary source of pain and stiffness in most muscle and joint disorders. This section, with the chapters that follow detailing the dietary and nutritional intervention for the challenge of chronic myofascial pain, gives the reader a comprehensive natural approach to their pain and suffering.

Do you suffer from chronic pain? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, more than 100 million Americans deal with this life-changing issue every day. And if you’re like most of them, you’ve tried all the normal "solutions": doctors, injections, medications, and surgeries. While these all have a place in healing, they have fallen short in dealing with the pain epidemic. So what can you do? In The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief, Nick Ortner presents a startling alternative. He lays out a step-by-step plan that teaches you how to use tapping, or EFT (emotional freedom techniques), to reduce or eliminate chronic pain. Looking at the scientific research surrounding pain, stress, and tapping, he opens your eyes to just how powerful tapping can be, and then outlines tips and techniques to address pain in both the short and long term. Nick guides you on a journey that begins on the surface – tapping to address the pain itself – and moves to the deeper issues that often affect pain. With easy-to-follow tapping scripts and exercises, Nick helps you heal the emotional pain and underlying beliefs that often keep people stuck. He also addresses topics that you may not think of as associated with chronic pain, such as: • Creating personal boundaries • Dealing with toxic relationships • Clearing resistance to change • Understanding the power of a diagnosis • Working through anger There are many ways the brain and body can create, increase, and prolong pain. After reading this book, you’ll not only understand what’s causing your pain but also how to achieve complete and lasting relief. But let’s face it; this is about more than just pain relief. It’s about empowering yourself to take back your body in order to live the life you want.

The first authoritative and comprehensive guide for treating chronic pain with medical marijuana from a holistic family physician who has treated more than six thousand chronic pain patients with cannabis. While the number of patients using medical marijuana increases every year, misconceptions about cannabis and whether it’s harmful or dangerous still exist.

Well, here it is. I can think of no other person who embodies such authority than Dr. Ivker,” (Michael Finkelstein, MD, FACP, ABIHM, author of Slow Medicine). Along with sharing his own story of using medical marijuana to heal from a severe case of shingles, Dr. Rav guides you through the cannabis and holistic treatment for your specific chronic pain condition. If you are suffering from arthritis, back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps, IBS, Crohn’s Disease, anxiety, depression, or pain from cancer or its treatment, this may be the book for you.

An amazing, proven, 10-point plan that explains noninvasive, life-altering practices to help you permanently heal your mind, body, and spirit. Millions of people suffer from some form of chronic pain (whether it be physical, emotional, or existential), and this discomfort silently drains too many of us of our highest potential and our power. Living in a state of unending pain pushes people to the margins of their own lives and robs them of direct access to their most authentic, essential, worthy selves. Pain, ironically, renders too many beautiful voices mute; it cripples the body, leaving too many dancing souls lost. And nobody knows this better than Peter Bedard. One night, seventeen-year-old dancer, Peter Bedard, died in a traffic accident. The white-bearded messenger waiting at the gate of heaven sent him back to Earth with a task to help others heal. After a decade of debilitating physical and emotional suffering, Peter uncovered an empowered, new way of healing chronic pain without medicine—convergence healing. In his groundbreaking approach, Bedard invites us to look at our pain as the greatest source of wisdom we will ever have. Instead of medicating it, trying to break with it, or somehow outwit it, he invites us to surrender to our pain so that we may finally integrate our losses, our transitions, our heartaches, and our mortality and make peace with the everlasting truth of who, uniquely, we truly are. Through the author’s own near-death experience and other compelling stories and case studies, Convergence Healing offers a whole new body-mind paradigm for those interested in living a balanced, well-integrated life.

View: 3972

"Teach Us to Sit Still is the visceral, thought-provoking, and inexplicably entertaining story of how Tim Parks found himself in serious pain, how doctors failed to help, and the quest he took to find his own way out. Overwhelmed by a crippling conditionwhich nobody could explain or relieve, Parks follows a fruitless journey through the conventional medical system only to find relief in the most unexpected place: a breathing exercise that eventually leads him to take up meditation. This was the very last place Parks anticipated finding answers; he was about as far from New Age as you can get. As everything that he once held true is called into question, Parks confronts the relationship between his mind and body, the hectic modern world that seems to demand all our focus, and his chosen life as an intellectual and writer. He is drawn to consider the effects of illness on the work of other writers, the role of religion in shaping our sense of self, and the influence of sports and art on our attitudes toward health and well-being. Most of us will fall ill at some point; few will describe that journey with the same verve, insight, and radiant intelligence as Tim Parks"--Provided by publisher.
