Understanding Pain: What to do about it in less than five minutes

Recommended Reading:

The Body Bears The Burden
Physical traumas and emotional traumas are powerfully interrelated. After decades of research into brain chemistry, Dr. Scaer has identified some of the ways that the helplessness and terror of sudden trauma induce changes in brain function and the resulting consequences these measurable chemical changes can have on muscles, digestion, blood pressure, and many other bodily systems. Using the clinical model of the whiplash syndrome, this electrifying book offers new hope to anyone suffering from whiplash, post-traumatic stress disorder, or a history of abuse. It even provides ways to cope with new traumas to minimize the emotional and physical damage!

Healing Back Pain
Dr. Sarno’s innovative chronic pain treatment program is based solely on providing knowledge and understanding of the true source of the pain. The core of this treatment is a lecture presentation in which Dr. Sarno leads his patients through a process of realization of the relationship between emotions and physical symptoms as well as the power of awareness as a cure for many common pain syndromes.

The Power of Now
Ekhart Tolle’s message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle’s clear writing, supportive voice, and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who’s ever wondered what exactly “living in the now” means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container–more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness.
