"The brain is still causing pain… even though the tissue has healed.”

“We have created an illusion of what pain is.”

“Many ways to cure your anxiety can actually cure your chronic pain and vice versa.”

“The average physician only has about 4 hours of pain science training… and receive no training around natural ways to cure pain."

“Your brain will produce pain as a sign to alert you.”

“As your fear decreases, your pain follows.”

“Slow change is permanent change."
