Mind Based Chronic Pain
I wholeheartedly agree with this video’s proposal that emotions, beliefs and attitudes can contribute to initially embedding and then driving Chronic Pain. I refer to this form of Chronic Pain as “Mind Based Chronic Pain” to distinguish it as being distinctly different from long-term disease or structure based pain, like cancer pain or arthritis pain.
Though the list above, compiled by Dr. Babel, is accurate for some, the exact details of the emotions and life concerns of any area of pain is much broader and will vary from individual to individual. I find that listening to specific metaphors, symbols and similes used in adjectives and a person’s language will often reveal the way that their specific pain is related to emotions, thoughts, beliefs or attitudes. A person may speak of a family member or a situation at work as a “pain in the neck” and these concerns may be manifested as neck pain. Interesting results and insights can also come from asking a person, “If the pain in your neck could speak what would it say?” You might even ask a Chronic Pain sufferer, “If you could talk to your pain, what would you like to say?”
Over a 40-year period of training, research and working in a psychotherapy and neuro- rehab clinical setting I gained in the ever-increasing appreciation of the degree to which emotions, thoughts, beliefs and attitudes can find an expression in Chronic Pain. I also developed a growing appreciation of the ability of people to take charge and effectively address their mind-based Chronic Pain.
I have seen that Chronic Pain sufferers can be highly in control of effectively resolving the internal emotion and thought patterns that contribute to the annoying and often limiting persistence of Chronic Pain. What is needed is a little guidance and an easy to learn and employ system that provides the means to Identify, Process, Release and Re-pattern the mind based “stories” driving and perpetuating their Chronic Pain. There is amazing satisfaction that comes from seeing people completely transforming their lives after saying good-bye to the suffering of Chronic Pain.
Mind Based Pain Repatterning (MBPR) System
It is remarkable how with training in MBPR (Mind Based Pain Repatterning) System Protocols MBPR (Mind Based Pain Repatterning) System Protocols, Chronic Pain sufferers are able to take charge and achieve lasting results at reducing and even eliminating years of Chronic Pain. With the use of MBPR Protocol Writing, the forces behind Chronic Pain can be identified and extinguished. When the power of these forces are quieted and rewritten in new, positive, nurturing and supportive stories, the suffering of Chronic Pain may also be extinguished.
Paul Tobey, a Chronic Pain sufferer for a full decade, limped back and forth across a stage when he was doing business presentations. He had not been able to attend the gym for seven years.
He was introduced to MBPR Protocol Writing to help him with identifying, processing and releasing the other-than-conscious mind component of his Chronic Pain. For 20 minutes a day he consistently stuck with a schedule of writing down and throwing out all of the negatives in his life and surrounding his ongoing persistent pain. To help with next stage of repatterning, he wrote positive and reframing messages in a notebook that he kept. After faithfully following these MBPR activities, Paul’s Chronic Pain completely vanished. You can see his testimonial in this YouTube Video:
