Dr. Scott Brady suffered with chronic back pain. He tried all the conventional methods of medicine but nothing seemed to help. Dr. Brady found a way to overcome his pain. He uses what is called a mind-body-spirit approach and what is amazing is that he did this in just four weeks.
He has helped his patients overcome many conditions such as back pain, neck and shoulder pain, migraine or tension headaches, muscle pain, irritable bowel symdrome, insomnia and many other pains associated with illness.
His patients have had a high level of success achieving 80-100% pain relief without surgery or drugs.
Dr. Brady begins the book by explaining what is meant by understanding your pain. What is the major cause in creating someone's pain? He gives an example of one of his patients who had chronic back and leg pain and nothing seemed to help her. After going through all of her medical records and talking to her he realized she was a perfectionist. She set extremely high standards for herself and had a list of things to do that just did not end. He explained to the patient that she was suffering from what he calls autonomic overload syndrome. He defines this as "a group of chronic pains and other symptoms caused by harmful levels of stress, pressure and repressed strong negative emotions that have built up in the subconscious mind".
The first step, understanding the pain, is very important in being able to help a patient. In order to help the patient, you must know what is causing the pain in the first place.
Dr. Brady gives details about his six week pain free life treatment program. He states that his six week program is designed to turn off abnormal changes in the body with several mind body spirit treatments. He believes that in most cases the symptoms will significantly improve in 40 days or less. Dr. Brady states that in order to get the maximum benefits of his program, there are three powers that are needed in order to succeed. The power of time, the power of repetition, and the power of confidence.
This is a very interesting book to read. It is well written and easy to understand. It is filled with many details explaining Dr. Brady's program. There are some words at the beginning of the book that really sum it all up. It states in part "To those who have lost hope because life has been replaced with pain I was there and am now pain free. Take courage; there is HOPE."
If someone is suffering from pain and has tried all types of treatments and nothing seems to work, what do they have to lose besides the cost of this book? Dr. Brady's treatment program certainly does not cost anything - it just involves a person following his instructions and not skipping any part of the plan. This book will give someone hope who has been suffering in pain and has tried all other methods with no success. If you fall into this category be sure to add this book to your reading list.
