Pain is a communication from our body to our brain telling it that something is not right. But there are different theories among scientists about pain. In this episode, you'll discover:
--There are those who cannot feel pain, which is actually a very dangerous condition as pain is an important part of our survival.
--How our emotional state affects our pain perception.
--The Bradley method of childbirth that makes a big difference in the pain level during labor.
--Why it is so hard to study pain from a scientific and ethical perspective.
--The influences that play a part in pain perception. And how a Doctor's lack of understanding causes a patient's pain to increase.
--The Energy Flow Theory and The Pain Threshold Theory of Pain that The Prather Practice utilizes in treating patients.
--The five pathways of energy in the body and how pain is caused when any one of those pathways becomes blocked.
--How Dr. Prather treats the pain pattern in the brain that can sometimes remain even after the pain is gone. (And how opiates contribute to this problem and make a patient's pain WORSE.)
--The Auriculotherapy treatment for pain that Dr. Prather describes as "the keyboard to the brain" and "THE most proven therapy in the world".
--The P-Stim therapy at The Prather Practice (worn on the ear for four days at a time) that gives amazing results for patients with conditions such as Arthritis, Joint Pain, Neck Pain, Back Pain, Migraines, Sciatica, Depression, Addiction, Smoking Cessation, Fibromyalgia, and Shingles.
