Numerous studies reveal that mindfulness meditation is proving to be an excellent tool in alleviating or managing chronic pain syndromes of all types and that has been my experience personally as well.
For example, Jon Kabat-Zinn, has performed a vast number of studies at his Stress Reduction clinic at the University of Mass, that found subjects with headaches, backaches, and even migraines are able to reduce their pain levels by more than 50 percent with mindfulness. Additionally, these participants also experienced long-term improvements in mood and their ability to perform daily activities.
Patients with IBS were able to reduce symptoms by 38 percent and also experienced significant reduction in psychological distress and improvement in quality of life, with the regular practice of mindfulness in a study performed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Other studies have demonstrated that participants with Fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cancer, Parkinson's, AIDS and more can significantly reduce their level of pain, as well as stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression. They also report a higher tolerance for pain, better coping skills and a more positive outlook on life, increased immune function, experience better sleep, and enjoy a higher level of well-being.
Additionally, mindfulness is also an effective tool in coping with all types of emotional pain, the treatment of insomnia, most mental health disorders, behavioral disorders, violent tendencies, substance abuse, heart disease, high blood pressure and reducing all kinds stress.
Not only that, people who use mindfulness also report a variety of other benefits like more inner peace, self-awareness, empathy, compassion, creativity, intuition, insight, joy, pleasure, improved memory and cognitive function, a higher level of consciousness and a richer, more meaningful life.
Although it was once considered an alternative treatment method, meditation is now not only acceptable but encouraged by a variety of physicians, hospitals and health care centers, in both the conventional and alternative medicine fields.
You too can be reaping the many benefits that mindfulness has to offer in less than 90 minutes, when you learn my personal technique.
Chronic Pain Conditions that Respond to Mindfulness
Throughout the years, I have used mindfulness effectively for a variety of conditions like migraines, headaches, gallbladder, irritable bowel syndrome, Fibromyalgia, atypical trigeminal neuralgia, temporomandibular disorders, back pain, hip pain, spine pain chronic myofacial pain syndrome and grieving.

The pain in type 2 is present most of the time, while the pain in type 1 is intermittent, but acute. I don't know how type 1 responds to mindfulness since it is more acute than chronic.)
If you don't see your type of pain in this list, that doesn't it mean mindfulness will not be effective for your condition. There are no restrictions on the kinds of pain that you can use with the method you will learn in Mindfulness Over Chronic Pain.

Who is Cynthia Perkins and What
Does She Know About
Mindfulness & Chronic Pain?
As a woman who has dealt with a variety of painful conditions in my lifetime, including chronic migraines and headaches, myofacial pain, atypical trigeminal neuralgia, Fibromyalgia, gallbladder issues and irritable bowel and one who is incapable of and unwilling to take prescription medications unless I'm dying, I had no choice but to find an alternative way of dealing with my pain.
Although our first instinct is to resist pain, I had learned through my personal experience that pain of all kinds; the physical, emotional and spiritual, are managed most effectively through acceptance. When we experience our pain in its entirety, it not only loses its power over us and reduces its ability to disrupt our life, but it enables us to live a richer and more fulfilling life, and the science behind mindfulness supports my findings.
Also, as an individual who has practiced many different types of meditation and researched holistic health for more than 20 years, my experience has shown me that although you can enjoy many of the benefits of any mindfulness technique, in order to relieve chronic pain most effectively, there is a particular timing, series of actions and process that should be employed.
Thus, this is how I arrived with the technique that I will teach you in the Mindfulness Over Chronic Pain handbook. I have spent decades fine-tuning my method using myself as the lab rat. You will find it is an uncomplicated, practical and handy technique that requires no specialized talents or extensive preparation. By the time you close this handbook you will know precisely how to utilize it and reap the many benefits that await you.
Additionally, Cynthia holds a bachelor's degree in psychology, a master's degree in counseling, and a certificate of completion in functional medicine, and is the author of more than 10 self-help books, a holistic health counselor and a sobriety coach, so you can rest assured that you are in the hands of a competent mental health professional.
With Cynthia's straight-forward and cut-to-the-chase approach that she has become known for, you will find that Mindfulness Over Chronic Pain is void of rigid philosophical, religious or spiritual definitions, dogma and traditions, thus making it a quick an easy to read handbook that is open to everyone, regardless of your belief system.

How Does Mindfulness Work on Chronic Pain?
Although pain is experienced in many different areas of the body, pain of any kind is regulated in the brain and influenced by the autonomic nervous system. Neuroimaging studies on the brain during mindfulness demonstrate that mindfulness stimulates the areas of the brain that regulate pain and promotes balance in the autonomic nervous system.
It stimulates our natural opiate like pain relieving neurotransmitters called endorphins and enkephalins, and other neurotransmitters like GABA, serotonin and dopamine, which among other things manage the autonomic nervous system.
Furthermore, mindfulness affects a part of the thalamus in our brain that gaits our pain sensory pathways and enables the brain to use its efferent and afferent neurons to locate the pain and alleviate it.
When you have a willingness to embrace the pain, let it exist and sit with it, you give your brain the information it needs to take care of the problem.
This area of the brain is also associated with sense of self, awareness, creativity, intuition. empathy, compassion, ability to be insightful, anxiety, fear, memory and cognition and thus why enhancement in all these areas, as well as more inner peace, are experienced as well.
Even though mindfulness is typically associated with spiritual growth, the basic fundamentals for improving health are grounded in science. Basically, it alters our brain chemistry and nervous system.
