Why Manage Your Pain When you can Cure it? “Unlearn Your Pain” by Dr. Howard Schubiner

Another book about back pain? I was honestly not too eager to see this one being a long time back pain sufferer, and yes the old cliché’ “I have tried everything for my pain” was and is the first thing I utter as soon as I find something like this. Creams, heating pads, patches, rubs, devices, appointments at the chiropractor, and when I think of all the money that was wasted it boggles my mind, because I still have back pain. So yes, I was not to gun ho about reading this. I actually set it aside and went about doing everything but reading this one. But as I promised the publisher I would read this and review and share my findings with our readers, I reluctantly picked it up and gave it a whirl, and to be honest-not expecting anything.
What I found was a different approach from what I have been told or shown. It is a 28 day program that will teach you about Mind Body Syndrome (MBS). It shows you how it develops and why modern medicine is typically unable to solve the problem. Most importantly, you’ll learn whether you suffer from this syndrome, and then guided through a comprehensive program to cure yourself. Your pain is real, but you no longer have to put up with it. This book helps you learn how to heal yourself. With chapters like: 2) Medicine’s Blind Spot, 3) How Pain Develops: The Role of the Brain, 5) Do You Have Mind Body Syndrome? 6) Starting the program: The Power is in Your Hands, and many more.
Endorsed by his colleagues from the Mayo Clinic and Harvard Medical School, ?Unlearn Your Pain, a new book from Dr. Howard Schubiner outlines a 28-day self-directed program that allows people to end chronic pain.
?People who suffer chronic pain have real pain, explains Dr. Schubiner. ?Doctor’s treat the part of the body that’s feeling the pain, but that is rarely the true source of the pain. If medical tests do not reveal any serious structural problem then chronic pain is due to overly sensitized connections between the brain and the body. Overtime they become wired into the brain’s circuitry. The nervous system learns to create chronic pain.
?Pain is a relatively common manifestation of stress and emotional reactions to stress. Mind body medicine has helped innumerable people yet only a relatively small number of physicians have incorporated this work into their practices. In fact, few physicians are even aware that syndromes such as back and neck pain, headaches, fatigue, fibromyalgia, temporo-mandibular joint syndrome, and irritable bowel and bladder syndromes can be caused by stress due to unresolved emotions such as worry, anxiety, fears, and anger.
Dr. Schubiner’s treatment and groundbreaking research supports the fact that the best way to cure pain is to retrain the brain and the nervous system. “Unlearn Your Pain” explains the science behind chronic pain in an easy-to-understand manner and gives people the same step-by-step approach that Dr. Schubiner has used for years in his own clinical practice to reverse his patient’s chronic pain.
Not only does Unlearn Your Pain explain chronic pain in a revolutionary way, it gives patients all the tools they need to rid themselves of their pain. It explains the science behind chronic pain in a common sense way that everyone will understand. Based upon his groundbreaking research this book is the answer to many who want to cure their pain.
Unlearn Your Pain is currently available on Amazon.com, and at unlearnyourpain.com.
