Pain Is Not What It Seems

Pain Is Not What It Seems by Anita Hickey MD, Morgan James Publishing, In Production

With a better understanding of healing, we can change the paradigm of treating and preventing chronic pain and disease.

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 affect one another on a profound level. This book 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.

    • Learn why simply treating symptoms is an ineffective way to address pain and illnesses, even if at first glance the problem appears to be strictly physical.
    • Reaffirm what you realize intrinsically, that you are a whole person with physical, spiritual, and psychological aspects which all affect one another
    • Learn how and why guilt, shame, and other long-repressed feelings can continue to plague a person long after the immediately apparent emotional distresses have subsided, over time creating imbalances such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and high blood pressure – or in more serious ways, such as chronic intractable pain or other severe illnesses.

After thirty years treating military and civilian patients with chronic and acute pain and associated disorders, Dr. Anita Hunt Hickey shares profound wisdom and insights of the “secrets” behind how to heal from intractable complex pain, which although published in scientific journals and books are 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.

Dr. Anita Hunt Hickey trained in Pain Medicine at Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital.
