About this deal

While recent NICE guidance suggests that we should steer our patients who have chronic pain away from strong (opioid) painkillers in preference to non-pharmacological approaches, he explains how there is a still a role for them when the pain is overwhelming. I’ve suffered from a lot of digestive hypersensitivity and so trying to use this book to make sense of it. Alon has a degree in neuroscience and was awarded the Certificate of Distinction in Teaching in Biology from UCLA.

Now I'm at the end of my third pregnancy without a hint of back pain :) I really should read the book again so I can share this information with others who need it! I put my name down for a 50 mile road march, my squadron was putting in a team and planning training sessions.His method is simple, but so accessible, and I believe these are vital tools for helping to get out of chronic pain, by training our brains out of hyper vigilance and fear.

And yet future doctors are spending less time than that studying something that afflicts more than a billion people worldwide! Gordon has also completed a groundbreaking neuroimaging study on the efficacy of PRT in conjunction with the University of Colorado-Boulder. The University of Colorado at Boulder recently conducted a large randomized controlled study on PRT, and the results are remarkable. Having stumbled across this book and put its recommendations into practice, I have been pain free for over a month. It's a quick read, contains numerous studies and scientific information, and humor is interspersed throughout since Gordon did have a brief stint in comedy.

Does your pain consume your thoughts- when you feel a twinge of pain, do you obsess over whether or not it's going to get worse? You might constantly live in the fear panic cycle, or maybe you have developed a pattern of 'fixing' or maybe you are just trying to figure out the 'why'. I usually get terrible, terrible migraines about once or twice a year that send me to the ER, so it made sense that maybe I was now suffering from chronic migraine. I will be spreading the word to mental health professional colleagues, fellow chronic pain suffers, and anyone who I come across who can relate or wants to help a loved one. Also known as safety reappraisal, this technique has been shown by scientists to significantly decrease fear.

In the absence of that, I'm left feeling like that I have to go back and and re-read the book and take my own notes: Something that it never would have occurred to me to do while I was reading it given the writing style (which felt more like a convo between friends.This book was so much fun to read that I can see myself re-reading this in the future, when I need a reminder. Working to improve our health can sometimes be hard work, so it’s important to also make time for enjoyment!

In this section, you’ll find advice, reviews, recommendations and insights for helping to find balance, especially between physical and mental health.While there are some reasonable ideas in this book that may be helpful in reducing and managing chronic pain, the book is a bit too chatty and fluffy for my liking. That's the program (w/a lot of fluffery in between pages, w/his many anecdotal sidebars about people he's helped).
