Unless you live in another universe you know that the current health care system is broken. Health has eluded most of us because of biological and/or environmental factors and the personal choices we make. The workers in the present system have been educated primarily to care for sick people by using chemicals to adjust the symptoms of their patients. The chemicals themselves cause so many side effects, patients face a trade off between a toxic treatment or a toxic cure. Changing this approach to care is a long way off. Resistance to change is great, particularly from members of the pharmaceutical industry because the stakes for them is measured in dollars, billions of dollars.
The number of people seeking treatment for pain continues is rise and with increased patients comes increased costs, many of which are out of pocket costs to the patients because the insurance industry is also broken! People are beginning to clamor for change. For people with pain Dr. Barr’s book is a light at the end of the tunnel.
In her book, Outsmart Your Pain: The Essential Guide to Consciously Overcoming Pain and Transforming Your Life, Dr. Barr has compiled a wealth of technical information in a way that makes reading her book truly painless (pun intended!). She presents an enormous amount of easily understood information about what is currently understood about pain. She then skillfully weaves this information together with the developing model of health care known as Functional Medicine. In contrast to the allopathic medical model, Functional Medicine practitioners empower their patients to take an active role in seeking balance and achieving their own optimal wellness using a wide array of both non-traditional and traditional strategies. If you or someone close to you is suffering from pain, read this book! Dr. Barr’s presentation will help you to know much more about pain, to comprehend it in new ways, and to both control and reduce it, thus outsmarting it!
