Hypnotize Yourself Out of Pain Now!: A Powerful User-friendly Program for Anyone Searching for Immediate Pain Relief (Book & CD) Reviews

Review by Bruce N. Eimer, Ph.D.:

As the author, I wrote this book for people who have tried everything to get their persistent pain to leave. I have compiled many techniques for helping people in pain regain control over their pain and diminish the suffering element.Self hypnosis is the best non-drug remedy for relieving pain that won't go away. I use it myself because I have chronic pain (fibromylagia, chronic fatigue, spinal disease and arthritis).The book clearly explains what HYPNOSIS is and what it is NOT. Readers are guided to choose the right self hypnosis method for them. Self-hypnotic pain coping methods covered (the "6 D's") include: Deep relaxation, De-catastrophizing, Direct behavior modification, Distraction, Distortion of pain sensations, and Dissociation from pain.To my knowledge, this is the first self-help book devoted solely to self hypnosis for pain management. The goal is
NO MORE PAIN. The method is self-hypnosis. The result is less pain and less suffering. The bottom line is that if you have a chronic disease, "pain may be mandatory, but suffering is optional".This book can be used with or without the help of a therapist.

The Weight, Hypnotherapy And You, Weight Reduction Program: An NLP And Hypnotherapy Practitioner Manual

Sometimes, I read a book on hypnosis that is to eloquent, so well-organized, so understandable, and written with such clarity and sensitivity that I wish I'd written it myself. That's how I felt about reading Hypnotize Yourself Out of Pain Now (Second Edition). This is the quintessential book on self-hypnosis for pain management.

Eimer first covers topics such as types of pain, the physiology of pain, pain and neurology, and the pain gate control theory, explaining how hypnosis can reduce chronic pain by closing off the neurological transmission of sensation to the brain from the site of previous injuries. He also discusses how to evaluate pain and how to evaluate one's coping strategies. The book then moves into the topics of hypnosis and self-hypnosis. Eimer acquaints the reader with basic information about hypnosis and then teaches eight methods of inducing self-hypnosis.

Next, the author provides a primer on pain management, covering the "six D's" of pain management: Deep Relaxation, Decatastrophizing, Direction, Distraction, Distortion, and Dissociation. He tells the reader how to match the pain management method to the type of pain, and gives self-hypnosis processes and self-suggestions in each "D" category. The pain management skills in this book include behavioral coping strategies, cognitive interventions, and relaxation methods.

This book also covers advanced self-hypnosis processes such as instant relaxation, a self-healing ritual, mindfulness meditation, ideo-motor signaling, and ego state therapy. I counted over 50 exercises for pain management in this book, so there is surely at least one that will help any reader who is willing to invest the time to learn and practice self-hypnosis. The book comes with a companion CD covers what hypnosis is, pain perception and hypnosis, relaxation with hypnosis, rating and lowering discomfort, pain relief and imagery, healing imagery, therapeutic touch and energy healing, comfort transfer, and stress control. While this book is written for anyone with chronic pain, it is also an excellent reference for hypnotherapists who work with pain reduction. As a chronic pain survivor myself, I believe this book holds great promise for improving the lives of many.

Foods That Fight Pain: Revolutionary New Strategies for Maximum Pain Relief

One of America's most knowledgeable and trusted experts on nutrition tells listeners how they can soothe everyday ailments and cure chronic pain by using common foods, traditional supplements, and herbs.Foods have special effects on pain, and research studies substantiate this, says Neal Barnard, M.D., in Foods That Fight Pain, a book endorsed by fellow doctors Dean Ornish and Andrew Weil. You can use foods to fight pain in these ways: 1. Choose pain-safe foods. Reduce inflammation by avoiding foods that may be causing or aggravating your pain. 2. Add soothing foods that ease pain. Different foods may improve blood flow, relieve inflammation, or balance hormones. 3. Use supplements if needed. Herbs, extracts, and vitamins can relieve pain. Barnard explores a variety of medical conditions, such as migraines, arthritis, digestive problems, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, herpes, sickle-cell anemia, kidney stones, urinary infections, and back, chest, breast, menstrual, and cancer pain. For each, Barnard explains the causes of the pain and what dietary changes are likely to alleviate it, with exercise and lifestyle recommendations. Barnard backs up his points with 30 pages of research citations. Most of the recipes are quick to prepare, and include an elimination diet to avoid trigger foods. A nutritional breakdown (calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, and sodium) accompanies each recipe. Following the advice in this book will not only relieve your pain, but increase your overall health. Highly recommended. --Joan Price

Foods That Fight Pain: Revolutionary New Strategies for Maximum Pain Relief Reviews

Review by Jack Thomas:

I just wanted to post a quickie review of Foods that Fight Pain. One of my relatives recently read the book and has since found tremendous relief for her arthritis. She has suffered for many years, always wondering if food could be part of her problem. As often seems to be the case, her doctors discounted her suspicions, telling her that food could not be to blame. However, she got a copy of Dr. Barnard's book, followed the elimination diet in it, and discovered which her trigger foods are--dairy, coffee, and citrus. Since changing her eating habits, she's had substantially less pain and she credits the book with her turnaround. I think the book is a wonderful addition to the growing library of information about how foods affect our health. Top recommendations from this Amazon customer!

Review by Jerry W. Vlasak, MD, FACS (jwvlasak@pol.net):

Dr. Barnard comes through again with an common sensical explanation of how the typical American diet is destroyning the lives of so many people. He notes with simple clarity that eating foods that humans have never eaten during their 3 million years of evolution results in illness and disability. By eliminating these foods like dairy products, animal flesh and certain other items, it becomes possible to restore our bodies to health and become free of chronic pain.I have prescribed a similar diet for my patients for many years, and like Dr. Barnard, the most frequent response I get, after often dramatic results, is "Why? Why didn't any doctor ever give me this information before?"I know why; its because too much money is being made by the pharmaceutical companies, the meat and dairy industries, and yes, the medical profession by keeping people dependent on their products. If you or someone you love suffers from arthritis, severe menstrual pain, migraines or any other chronic pain, you could do nothing better than to read this book and heed its advice.Jerry Vlasak, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Yoga to the Rescue for Back Pain Reviews

Review by Beth Cholette:

In this DVD, Anusara-trained yoga instructor Desirée Rumbaugh offers a yoga practice designed to ease pressure and tightness in the back, improve posture, and increase strength and flexibility to the core of the body. The Main Menu of the DVD is as follows: Introduction (brief overview by Desirée) - Play Workout - Chapter Index - Biography - Music Options (Music Only or Music + Instruction) - Also from Acacia (trailers of other workouts). For some of the postures, a block or blanket is used.

Desirée mostly leads the workout using voiceover instruction, although she breaks in live at times to provide more specific tips. The first six chapters (about 8 minutes) focus mainly on the fundamentals of good standing posture. She then moves through a series of basic standing postures to warm up the back, including chair pose, cat/cow, downward dog, spinx/cobra, and locust. The lower back in particular is targeted through several lunge variations as well as a seated twist. Because weak abdominal muscles can contribute to lower back problems, Desirée also works on strengthening the abdominal core through exercises performed in a reclined position such as crunches, leg lifts, and pendulum; this section was fairly challenging, especially the pendulum move, which Desirée moved through at quite a fast pace. Next, Desirée returns to some additional backbending postures, upping the intensity level with bow, camel, and bridge. Following this, the practice begins to wind down through a series of stretches, including lying hamstring stretch, outer hip stretch, and windshield wipers. Desirée offers some final postural tips in the reclined position, as she provides instruction on preserving the lumbar curve as well as presents the use of lying over a blanket to restore proper alignment. The practice concludes with a savasana (relaxation) that is just under four minutes long, bringing in the total time at approximately 65.5. minutes.

Although video this is presented as a complete yoga practice, the mixture of independent short chapters (most are around 2 minutes in length), interruptions for live instruction, occasional lack of parity between voiceover and onscreen demonstrations, and brief "Tip" segments which show the right versus wrong way to perform some of the postures all contributed to an overall choppy feel. The information presented here is certainly valuable, but the stop-and-go nature made it feel more like a physical therapy session or yoga workshop than an actual yoga practice. This DVD would probably work best for those wanting specific tips and strategies to address back pain rather than a flowing yoga practice experience; overall, I'd rate it 3 1/2 stars.

Review by Susan:

Don't look to this video as "the rescue for back pain," despite its title.

Though the instructor is lovely and the actual footage is shot and edited well, this video is presented in a way that assumes you already know yoga. I offer four primary observations. It is: 1) Not for the newbie 2) Not for the inflexible 3) Heavy on the earthy yoga lingo 4) Not an exercise class or yoga session.

1) NOT FOR THE NEWBIE:

Some of the poses are both aggressive and difficult to understand if you're a yoga newbie. These factors practically invite more pain, because if you don't execute the poses correctly, you will stress your back (like I did).

2) NOT FOR THE INFLEXIBLE:

In addition to her obvious experience, she is also incredibly flexible. So, if you're in serious pain with limited mobility due to your pain or injury, reconsider this as a choice, unless you're willing to watch it simply for infotainment rather than for actual therapeutic guidance. I don't think many people will be able to handle many of these poses.

3) WHAT THE HECK DOES "FEEEEEL THROUGH YOUR KNUCKLES" MEAN?

The instructor uses very "earthy" language too - ie: "soften your heart through your upper back" and "breathe through your shins" type of expressions, which yoga newbies a) won't understand b) might find ridiculous.

4) NOT A YOGA CLASS:

Lastly, this DVD isn't an exercise class, per se. It is a demonstration of Yoga poses - one after the next. It's up to you to create a workout or yoga session of your own, using the poses demonstrated.

I am going to return this video. It's not at all what I thought it was going to be.

Lidocaine Pain Relieving Gel 2 oz. Bottle (Unscented)

(Odorless) Fast Acting Anesthetic Gel. Helps Relieve Diabetic Foot Pain. Treatment for migraines and tension headaches. Safe for Patients Taking Blood Thinning Drugs. Safe and Effective on Shingles, Itching, Soreness, and Discomfort of the Skin Due to Certain Conditions Such As Eczema, Scratches, Minor Burns and Insect Bites. Lidocaine Gel Works Like Magic on Painful Joints and Muscles! For pain related to shingles and other nerve pain; apply ¼ teaspoon to affected area.

Lidocaine Creme is a combination of Lidocaine USP and a standardized Feverfew herbal extract in a proprietary dermal delivery system. Feverfew (chrysanthemum parthenium) is the number one herb used by herbalists for the treatment of migraines and tension headaches as well as for relieving accompanying symptoms like nausea. Dr. Frederick Freitag of the Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago reported that Lidocaine cream applied to the forehead during a migraine headache can provide rapid pain relief for some migraine patients. Lidocaine apparently works to stop the migraine by carrying painkilling messages from the peripheral nerves back to the areas in the brain where migraines are believed to start. At an annual meeting of the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology, Dr. Freitag presented research of a placebo-controlled trial of 40 migraine patients. Of those patients using Lidocaine, seven were pain free in 2 hours and eight were pain free in 8 hours compared to none in the placebo treated group. There were no significant side effects. Dr. Freitag noted. "When patients get a migraine attack, it takes time for normal oral medication to work, while this provides relief very quickly." He added, "We foresee people using it primarily as a mainstay of therapy."

  • Reduces joint and muscle pain quickly
  • Decreases pain related to shingles and migraine headaches
