Other Pain Education

       For those interested in only the Nervous System or Nutritional components of Taming Pain, we have individual booklets available. Therapists find these booklets very helpful in enhancing a patient's understanding of dysfunction and the rehabilitation of pain and the physical effects of stress. Let our booklets do the explaining for you!

NOTE:  Pain: A Love Story and Taming Stress information is in the FULL TAMING PAIN SPIRAL BOUND EDITION (not unique from Taming Pain)

 

And I am thrilled to offer you my newest  publication:

Restoring the Pain Control System: A Beginner's Guide to Cannabinoids and the Endocannabinoid System

Pain: A Love Story

      This book represents my best efforts to simplify the very complex concepts proposed by today's researchers in the growing field of the neuro-pain model. The development of the functional MRI (fMRI) has allowed scientists an intimate look into the greatest processor that will ever be created: the human brain. Further, we now understand that our old primitive view that pain is in direct proportion to the structural damage present (the structural pathology model) is, simply put, WRONG.

       In Pain: A Love Story, you will learn how the pain that started off with good reason has become a monster that won't leave you alone. You will learn the truth behind chronic pain "and the truth shall set you free"! We will explore what has been called, "the neuromatrix model" by scientist R. Melzack. In his words: "pain is a complex, multisystem, disproportionate response, generated by a network of cells within the central nervous system, in response to an actual or perceived threat". Confused by that statement? Don't worry about it. We have pages and pages to turn you into a powerful member of your pain rehabilitation team. It is my hope that this book serves to supplement the conversations your therapist has had with you about this valuable information. Regardless, the treatment plans outlined in these pages have proven effective with chronic pain patients throughout the globe. In my practice as a physical therapist and as a manual therapist, specializing in caring for the most complex cases, I could not imagine a day without having this information in my arsenal.

Taming Stress

       If there was one prevelant issue that the human race will never rid itself of, it'd be the overabundance of stress. You can't sell it, but you sure can buy it. You can't see it, yet it's everywhere. Stress doesn't have a color, but it makes us feel blue and see red. This overabundance, which our society currently can't seem to get rid of, is detrimental to both our mental and physical health!

       That being said, stress is a silent killer. That may seem like a fairly strong statement, but stress CAN kill you; it just tends to do it slowly. Some already know the affect that stress has had on them: an ulcer, mood swings, headaches, etc. However, most people have no idea of the physical changes and physiologic warfare going on inside of them every day. That is, until they find themselves in a very deep hole.

       This booklet is designed to arm you with the information you need to understand and recognize stress. This includes understanding what stress is, what stress physiologically triggers in the body, and the resulting changes that can occur. Though we sometimes feel like it'd be nice to live a stress-free life, the right amount of stress is needed to strengthen our physical structures and motivate us to improve ourselves. We, as social animals, have to realize that stress is simply a part of interacting with our "pack". We don't, however, have to let stress tear us down bit by bit. In response, I want to give you the tools necessary for healing the damage that naturally occurs when living a stressful life. With these tools and knowledge, you can finally fully embrace your role in taking back your health and happiness.

Restoring the Pain Control System:

A Beginner's Guide to Cannabinoids and the Endocannabinoid System  

                                 eBook    

CANNABONOID.jpg

     So many of my patients were asking about the use of CBD in their pain management program that I had to take a deep dive into this topic to safely and accurately answer their questions.  What I found AMAZED me!   There is an entire system of the body, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), designed to make your own cannabinoids, which can be supplemented with plant based (phyto) cannabinoids.   

The ECS is the overarching system that balances the responses of every other system of the body.  When the ECS is healthy and doing its job, your pain is in control, but when it is not functioning correctly, other systems can run wild- resulting in health issues and on-going pain.

In this book, you will learn:

  • how this system functions

  • how to restore the ECS to health (so you don't need CBD) through diet and lifestyle modifications

  • how to safely and effectively supplement with CBD to control your pain if you need to

  • how to select a trust worthy company for your CBD needs

 

And for a lively presentation/ discussion of this essential information, please join me at my next Endocannabinoid System Webinar, sponsored through The Institute of Physical Art (register through their webpage).
