Chronic Pain Control: Altering Reality teaches readers (patients and practitioners) how to reduce or stop chronic pain intrinsically, from within. The techniques are science-based and are fast, effective pain management alternatives for controlling chronic pain without the need for painkiller drugs. Patients perform these techniques themselves. These intrinsic techniques work by tricking the nervous system into unlearning abnormal chronic pain patterns while it relearns normal patterns of appropriate acute pain when necessary, followed by no pain as conditions heal. For some conditions, these techniques also help patients regain muscle and/or gland function as pain subsides. Best case outcomes from leaning these skills: 1. Control chronic pain to the point of significantly reducing or stopping it; 2. Re-establish normal pain patterns; 3. Improve muscle and/or gland function, depending on the illness or condition; 4. Enhanced sense of well-being and improved health for mind/body/spirit as pain and stress levels go down.
