Fibromyalgia Relief Study
My life changed when 80% of the people in the fibromyalgia study reported having zero pain after a session of The ICE Method. And then it changed again when the pain returned for many of these people. I learned so much from this study, and I wrote FIBROMYALGIA RELIEF so you can have it too – relief from your Fibromyalgia symptoms.
I learned how much calm matters to our health and also
- how easy it is to experience a state of calm
- the difference it makes for our physical health
- the difference it makes for our emotional health
- how the recent discovery of memory reconsolidation opens the possibility of bringing calm to stored emotional disturbances or trauma.
- how our culture of stress and anxiety makes it easy for people to lose our experience of calm
FIBROMAYLGIA RELIEF is simple and direct. This book provides you with easy instructions for doing The ICE Method yourself. A section on the science of The ICE Method explains how this method works and why it provides results. Finally, in Part Three, I invite you to join me in reflecting on this culture of stress and anxiety that we live in, where it came from, how it impacts us, and what we can do to live calm in our daily life.
Fibromyalgia Relief Excerpt – From the Preface
Turn off your fight-or-flight response and you will feel better. Your fibromyalgia symptoms may decrease or disappear if you become aware of the state of calm. The paradoxical state of calm allows your body to turn off your fight-or-flight response and enjoy improved health. When your body is calm you produce a chemistry that allows your body to rest and heal. When you are in fight-or-flight mode your body chemistry focuses only on immediate survival. While fight-or-flight helps us survive danger, getting stuck in stress mode causes our health to suffer.
In this book you will learn what I call The ICE Method, based on the latest scientific discoveries of cell biology and neuroscience. A recent neuroscientific discovery called “memory reconsolidation” gives new possibilities for transforming stored emotions in the chemistry of your brain. The acronym ICE stands for Identify, Calm, and then Exchange. I will first show you The ICE Method process to reduce or eliminate your fibromyalgia symptoms. Then I will explain what lies behind the process and why it works. Then you will have a new tool to help you get on with your life.
You could find the information in this book elsewhere. I did. And you can find more experienced facilitators of healing than myself. I know a number of them. The reason I write this book is not because I have discovered anything unique. I write because I have combined a number of scientific insights that have allowed many people to experience relief. Millions of people in the United States, and many more around the world, suffer debilitating effects from fibromyalgia. I’ve experienced success in sharing this method, and I hope it can be effective for you. I would like for people with fibromyalgia to have a simple process for ending their suffering,
As Fibromyalgia Specialist, Dr. Ginevra Liptan has stated in her book, Figuring Out Fibromyalgia; “medical science has not yet figured out how to turn off the switch of the stress response that gets stuck in the “on” position in fibromyalgia. When we do that we will have found a cure.”
Since traditional Western medicine doesn’t help a person turn off their stress response, the Western medical profession typically has rather limited success in treating fibromyalgia. I can show you a simple way to turn down your fight-or-flight response. Turn off your fight-or-flight stress response and you can begin to feel better. My goal and my wish are for everyone who has fibromyalgia to learn how easily you can turn off your fight-or-flight response.
Entering the calm state can often provide healing for body, mind, and spirit. As I will explain, most of what we react to in our daily lives can’t actually physically hurt us (the overdue bill, the cranky boss, the whiny kids). We don’t really need our body to go into fight-or-flight mode to respond to these situations. Fight-or-flight only truly needs to engage during a clear present physical danger (the proverbial tiger, or a bus about to run you over in a crosswalk). Unfortunately, most of us have learned to respond to overdue bills and other anxieties with the same fight-or-flight chemistry as when a real tiger attacks.
Far more than necessary, we live in an anxious state, yet in reality we face very few immediate physical threats that might cause us bodily harm. We actually don’t need our fight-or-flight response turned on except for the rare immediate physical threat. If we could figure out how to turn off the fight-or-flight response, we would discover that it’s almost always safe for our body chemistry to be calm. My goal is to show you how to do this.
