Overview

Many people think nothing of "suffering through" the pain. But in fact, letting pain go on too long can make it much harder to treat. And it can have detrimental effects on your mind, your memory, even your lifespan. In most cases, people in pain don't have to wait for a breakthrough treatment to heal their pain. The solutions already exist.

But the best pain solutions are not one-size-fits-all. Too many people try one remedy and then give up, or they stick with a one-remedy solution that's just so-so because they don't think they have any other options. Make Pain Disappear brings together options to figure out which solutions are best for which people, and which combinations of remedies work best together.

Find answers such as these:

  • Who should combine antidepressants plus relaxation therapy to tame tension headaches
  • Which arthritis sufferers benefit most from taking joint- building supplements
  • Why physical therapy doesn't always work for back pain
And some home remedies are the best:
  • Humming can help blocked sinuses
  • Use a sock to ease neck pain
  • Cherry juice can help muscle aches
This book is guide towards better pain relief, but it also busts myths and attitudes that keep people from addressing their pain. Surprisingly 95 percent of people with pain stick with their family doctor, but experts say the majority would get more relief by consulting a specialist. The biggest roadblocks to conquering pain are our own beliefs and attitudes.

Discover simple tricks for fast relief as well as deeper, longer-term solutions-ranging from exercise to home remedies to prescription drugs to alternative solutions like herbs, acupressure, massage, and even mental strategies. Recognize hidden pain triggers, and make small changes to daily habits that bring amazing amounts of relief.
