Pain seems to be my theme for the week. I have just published a review of the book “Free Yourself from Pain” written by Dr David E. Bresler. This excellent self-help book will make you look at pain in a completely different way. Most of us view pain as something that happens to us due to some sort of direct injury or disease process. However, research into the pain experience indicates that pain is rarely that simple. Dr. Bresler does a great job describing the science of pain in a way that is easily understandable, while also giving you direct tools for managing your own pain experience. Although not written specifically for IBS, the information in this book should prove extremely helpful to you if chronic pain is a large part of your symptom picture.
