Can You Live Pain-Free?
What does the body need in order to have true, lasting pain relief? Pain, unique for each person, is determined by genetic makeup, previous experiences of traumatic events, and learned reactions to these events. The authors of Freedom From Pain note that true pain recovery occurs when each one of these conditions is dealt with.
Levine and Phillips offer discussions on how readers can resist the urge to fight feelings of pain, as well as strategies on dealing with trauma by addressing fear, irritability, and depression, feelings that often accompany highly stressful events. Freedom From Pain also includes methods of self-regulation for readers to employ. The authors include approaches on dealing with common painful conditions, including fibromyalgia, migraines, and surgery recovery.
