Unfortunately, current studies of pain are very weak due to two fundamental issues. First: The goal, in general, is to reduce or to remove pain. Pain is always seen as a negative. Pain is often healthy,. Second: Pain is learned. How we react to pain is also learned. Pain is a sensation we can learn to enjoy, sometimes in a negative way, sometimes in a positive way. And then there's chronic pain. Our studies of chronic pain are simplistic, based on the assumption that chronic pain is incurable. When it is cured - we ignore the cure and forget the pain. Chronic diseases have chronic causes. Chronic pain has a chronic cause. To cure, the cause must be addressed.
to your health, tracy
