Based upon cutting-edge research and written by an esteemed research physician, Unlearn Your Pain demonstrates that most chronic pain is caused by learned nerve pathways. Learned nerve pathways produce real pain that is typically triggered by injury and/or significant stressful events. This simple, yet revolutionary concept is the basis for a treatment approach that has been proven to be effective in research studies. Unlearn Your Pain provides the reader with the scientific basis for understanding the cause of their pain and a comprehensive step-by-step self-help guide that includes therapeutic writing exercises and meditations to reverse it.

About The Book

Do you suffer from chronic pain that appears to have no medical cause? Many of us suffer needlessly from pain diagnosed as migraines, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, or chronic neck, back, abdominal, and pelvic pain, when the real cause is Mind Body Syndrome.

Using cutting-edge research, this book demonstrates that the underlying reason for much chronic pain is nerve sensitization and learned nerve pathways, rather than actual tissue destruction. Dr. Schubiner has used this new understanding to develop a unique program to actually reverse pain and research studies support the effectiveness of the program. By reading this book, you'll be able to determine if you have this syndrome and then learn how to overcome it. The program in this book gives you therapeutic writing exercises, a CD with four meditations, and everything else you need to unlearn your pain.
