Scientists Announce Chronic Pain Is Determined By Emotions

Scientists Link Emotions to Chronic Pain Daily Telegraph

The Telegraph, a world renowned newspaper, recently released a fascinating article about new findings in the relationship between emotions and chronic pain. Scientists have discovered why some people don’t recover from illness or injury, while others do — their emotions! Brain scan studies showed how chronic pain emerges as a result of an emotional response to an injury. Lead scientist Professor Vania Apakarian clarified that injury itself is not enough to explain ongoing pain in patients.

The results from this study were published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

This type of finding is exactly what led me to my research and work in emotional healing after suffering from my own chronic illness. I was determined to find out why some people recover fully from injury or illness, while for others, it becomes a chronic state. And, without any scientific studies (although they sure would have been nice) I came to the same conclusions.

I hope this helps people understand why using energy therapy techniques for emotional healing can be so important. It’s an incredible way to access some of the emotional energy that might be holding healing at bay. I know how hard it can be to look at our emotionls when we’re so busy just trying to get healthy, but this piece might make it all go a little faster. Now, wouldn’t that be nice? :)

A note from Amy

I was once where you are so I totally get ya’. After suffering from a myriad of challenges from general anxiety about life to Lyme disease, endometriosis and every autoimmune disease under the sun, I ended up on a search for something deeper than a “fix”. I went to many alternative practitioners – but I couldn’t relate to a single one of them. As a very grounded-in-reality person, many were just too ‘woo woo’ for me and I couldn’t integrate their guidance into my very real-life, life. Then I found myself on an adventurous path of emotional healing — using energy therapy. Talk about ‘woo woo’ right? But with it, I learned. I unfolded. I let go.
My ultimate healing, the kind that goes deep down to your core and makes you whole again, came from following this road. And yours just might too.
