Solving the Mystery of Chronic Pain and Depression
Dr. Gary Kaplan, D.O.
"How We Get Sick, Why We Stay Sick, How We Can Recover
For more than 100 million Americans who suffer from it, chronic pain often returns at the slightest provocation, even when doctors can't find anything wrong. Conventional treatments have long focused on symptoms, not underlying causes, and as a result can leave patients locked into a lifetime of suffering.
Dr. Kaplan argues that we've been thinking about the nature of pain all wrong. He concludes that chronic physical and emotional pain are, in fact, two sides the same coin. The pain signals in our brains can keep firing in the nervous system for months or years, and no matter what type of pain it is, they all register in the brain in the exact same area.
Dr. Kaplan asserts that, disease is not the result of a single event, but an accumulation of traumas. Every injury, toxin, infection, etc. all generate the same reaction in the body: inflammation. If the cells of inflammation are turned on too often too many times, their stimulation can have devastating cumulative effects.
The up side? An inflamed nervous system can indeed be down-regulated and healed. With this revolutionary new framework in place, we have been given the keys to recovery."
