The Pain Cure: The Proven Medical Program That Helps End Your Chronic Pain
DARE TO BE PAIN-FREE! Are you one of the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic pain? Whether your problem is arthritis or back pain, TMJ or PMS, migraine or fibromyalgia, there's a solution that has worked for thousands. This powerful, comprehensive, four-pronged approach embraces proven techniques from sources ancient and modern, East and West. The lifework of a nationally renowned pioneer in integrative medicine, The Pain Cure attacks pain with: NUTRITION. Other therapies tell you what nutrients cause pain. The Pain Cure tells which ones stop pain. PHYSICAL THERAPIES. From exercise to acupuncture, massage to magnetherapy, The Pain Cure helps you rebuild your body to stop pain. MEDICATION. From herbs to aspirin, homeopathy to hormones, The Pain Cure describes the best combinations for eliminating pain. MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL PAIN CONTROL. By focusing your own inner resources, The Pain Cure gives you stunning control over your pain--and a new awareness of your true self.
Khalsa (Brain Longevity, LJ 5/1/97), an integrative medicine specialist, is credited with developing "the first holistic pain management program in the southwestern United States," combining medication, nutrition, physical therapies, and mental and spiritual approaches. This book begins with an overview of the mechanism of pain and how it can initiate chronic pain or chronic pain syndrome, a difference the author explains. Next, Khalsa devotes a chapter to each aspect of his program. Additional chapters focus on specific painful conditions (arthritis, fibromyalgia, headache). The appendixes use line drawings to illustrate exercises involving meditation, yoga, breathing, and weight training. A short list of resources and recommended readings is included. Khalsa uses statistics and scientific studies liberally, but no references validate his statements. Individuals desperate to rid themselves of pain will find good information on combining traditional medical and alternative approaches, but references to "cures" and "spectacular results" may leave some skeptical. Recommended for public or consumer health libraries where there is a demand for alternative health titles.--Lisa McCormick, Jewish Hosp. Lib., Cincinnati Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
