Below is a short excerpt from each chapter:
Chapter 1 – 50 Reasons why you can control pain with your mind.
During WW2, Henry Beecher ran out of Morphine whilst treating US soldiers injured in battle. He continued injecting with just saline: 40% of the soldiers reported pain relief from the placebo.
Chapter 2 – 50 Techniques to help you control pain with your mind.
Picture yourself shrinking down into your body and going to your brain where you see a control centre with many dials and sliders. Find the dial or slider which is connected to your pain and discomfort. Before resetting the pain, note which number it is set to, one being the lowest and ten the highest. Now adjust the setting up one notch and notice the difference in sensation in your body, then start turning the setting down as far as you feel it can go.
Chapter 3 – 50 Examples of people healing their body with their mind.
A 2002 study looked at knee surgery and its effectiveness. The study had 3 groups:
1 – Had the operation to remove damaged cartilage.
2 – Had their knee joint cleaned.
3 – Had fake surgery – knee cut open nothing done then sewed back up.
All 3 groups had the same aftercare and, more importantly, recovered and improved in their mobility to equal levels.
Chapter 4 – 50 Techniques to help the body recover using the mind.
Imagine your healthy cells as plump and juicy berries and your unhealthy cells as dried, wrinkled and shrivelled pieces of fruit. You can imagine a bird acting as the immune system, flying in and taking the unhealthy cells away from your body. Alternatively you can picture the unhealthy cells being watered, back to healthy, productive and good cells that work for your body by blossoming into plump healthy cells.
