This title talks about a groundbreaking, compassionate, and optimistic mind-body program for dealing with chronic everyday symptoms based on over 20 years of clinical experience. The authors have developed a set of essential skills for overcoming the symptoms of chronic illnesses of every kind. The treatment is unique, powerful, and simple to learn. Readers are taught to stop worrying about being sick, and to start thinking about living well. This involves mastering the five psychological factors that make chronic symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, headaches, weak muscles, acid indigestion and bloating, persist. In a few short weeks, symptoms that have plagued so many for so long can be significantly relieved.
