“At last… a book about chronic pain that covers every aspect of this huge issue. A possible solution for nearly everyone who is suffering.”
—Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times-bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom.
Do you have arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, or another form of pain? This foundational book on chronic pain offers a holistic guide to living pain-free, which incorporates traditional medicine and natural solutions such as supplements, reflexology, meditation, cannabis, and more.
In Rethink Chronic Pain, medical doctor and proven chronic pain expert, Dr. Gaétan Brouillard, identifies the physical and psychological roots of pain and recommends not one single treatment (as the vast majority of pain books do) but many: he combines osteopathy, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, nutrition, mindfulness, and natural products (including cannabis and CBD) into his tried-and-tested approach, which he has used to heal patients in his own practice. Dr. Brouillard also draws on his years of experience as an emergency room doctor, clinician, and medical researcher to explain scientific breakthroughs in pain treatment and how to use traditional medicine and surgery when necessary.
Throughout the book, Dr. Brouillard explores all aspects of pain. He explains the connection between pain and depression and anxiety; the biological and environmental causes of pain; the impact of pain on our finances; the importance of sleep for chronic pain recovery; and the relationship between pain and what we eat. Finally, he shares the benefits of meditation and creative thinking for living a pain-free life.
