Publisher Comments:

About 100 million Americans live with some form of chronic pain—more than the combined number who suffer from diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. But chronic pain has always been a mystery. It often returns at the slightest provocation, even when doctors cant find anything wrong. Oddly enough, whether the pain is physical or emotional, traumatic or slight, our brains register all pain as the same thing, and these signals can keep firing in the nervous system for months, even years.In Total Recovery, Dr. Gary Kaplan argues that weve been thinking about disease all wrong. Drawing on dramatic patient stories and cutting-edge research, the book reveals that chronic physical and emotional pain are two sides of the same coin. New discoveries show that disease is not the result of a single event but an accumulation of traumas. Every injury, every infection, every toxin, and every emotional blow generates the same reaction: inflammation, activated by tiny cells in the brain, called microglia. Turned on too often from too many assaults, it can have a devastating cumulative effect.Conventional treatment for these conditions is focused on symptoms, not causes, and can leave patients locked into a lifetime of pain and suffering. Dr. Kaplans unified theory of chronic pain and depression helps us understand not only the cause of these conditions but also the issues we must address to create a pathway to healing. With this revolutionary new framework in place, we have been given the keys to recover.

Synopsis:

Chronic pain has always been a mystery. For the more than 100 million Americans who suffer from it, their pain often returns at the slightest provocation, even when doctors cant find anything wrong. In Total recovery, Dr. Gary Kaplan argues that weve been thinking about the nature of pain all wrong, resulting in the misdiagnosis of untold numbers of patients who receive inadequate, even inappropriate, care. Physicians continue to diagnose conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic back pain, depression, anxiety, and PTSD, when a growing body of research shows that these are not diseases in themselves, but symptoms of inflammation in the brain. The cause? Not a single event, but a long-term accumulation of traumas. Every injury, infection, toxin, and emotional blow generates inflammation, activated by tiny cells in the brain called microglia. These signals can keep firing in the nervous system for months, even years, to devastating effect. Fortunately, it is possible to quiet inflamed cells and restore balance so sufferers can finally address the underlying cause of their chronic pain. With Dr. Kaplans revolutionary new medical model, millions of misdiagnosed readers can stop suffering and fully regain their health.
