I'm glad that you found help thru this book, but unfortunately, I did not, and I don't think touting it as a cure is appropriate. It would appear to me from your two posts in this thread that what you were experiencing was a mental issue that manifested itself as "pain" in your mind. If your doctors were unable to find a physical cause and reading a book completely "freed" you from pain, then you never actually suffered from chronic PHYSICAL pain, unlike 99.90% of the posters here.
For those of us who have been diagnosed with chronic pain, there is detailed information provided to us by our doctors, such as: WHO is suffering, WHAT the problem is, WHERE it's located in the body, WHY it's happened, WHEN will we be normal again and HOW we are going to fix it.
Most of the time, we are given assistance in managing the pain but generally, there is no cure. I believe that strength to deal with chronic pain or illness often comes from a Higher Power. For me, that's God....for others, who knows. I just know that for the most part, we all still suffer.
My closing sentence really sums up my attitude to people claiming a "cure" for chronic pain exists; "If there is even ONE person on this earth suffering from chronic pain with no relief, then there is no cure".
