Pain is Not What it Seems contains a treasure trove of scientific references supporting an astonishingly simple and transformative path to healing and well-being. While conventional Western medicine tends to treat the body and mind as separate entities, scientific evidence proves that physical, spiritual, and psychological aspects of self can affect one another on a profound level. Pain Is Not What It Seems explains the science that tells us that only when these deeper spiritual and emotional issues are addressed can true healing from suffering and pain begin.
After thirty years treating military and civilian patients with chronic and acute pain and associated disorders, Dr. Hickey has shared profound wisdom and insights of the “secrets” behind how to heal from intractable complex pain, which—although published in scientific journals and books—is not taught to most doctors nor found in standard wellness curriculums. Her astonishingly simple and transformative program provides an easy-to-follow path to healing from suffering and pain that reaffirms what those suffering realize intrinsically: they are a whole person and need to be treated as such.
