Description : Back pain is very hard (often impossible) to diagnose and to specify, hence heavy painkillers are thrown at people. But the only way to beat the pain is to understand it. Based on cutting-edge research into back pain and the psychology of pain itself, David Rogers and Grahame Brown have set up the Functional Restoration Service at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham – the UK’s leading centre for back pain. Here they have developed the pioneering BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL approach: BIO – How your body processes pain; what physical triggers you have and why; where your body holds pain PSYCHO – where your pain is coming from; what exactly your pain is; the power of your mind to deal with and stop pain SOCIAL – all the environmental factors that will contribute to your back pain, and how, why and when to change them Based on this revolutionary and already hugely successful approach, Back to Life offers a whole new way of dealing with back pain: - Understand the psychology of pain - Debunk the myths - Find the source of your pain - Manage your pain – including all the emotions and anxiety that go with it - Master exercises and stretches - Identify and solve the social factors - Get lasting relief

Description : As the oak tree is summarized in the acorn, so nature is summarized in the human brain. They express a model. Looking at this small acorn though, no one can foresee the majestic oak tree it might become. Of course, with only its genetic code it will not develop. In the same way, humans are called to become what our ancestors and even we cannot foresee. But in order to develop all our potentialities some conditions must be met. We surround this acorn with nutrients, water, earth, and light, allowing it to be part of a living whole. For humans, this living whole is nature and society. Alas, at this time both have become deficient. The model is not allowed to freely unfold. This model was intuitively grasped by all great traditions. It led psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung to find in Taoism "principles so vast that they can be applied to the entire humanity." With the rise of modern science though, this vision vanished. However, brain research results agree with the model so science is now on the brink of rediscovering it. In "Love them back to Life," her second book, Ariane Page takes us on a discovery journey through this model expressed by the human brain as she focuses on love. Love is the tool used by this model, the LIFE (Law Inherent to the Five Elements), to eventually lead us to coherence between our physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual realities. In that holism, we will truly feel alive, happy, and loved.
