Chronic pain has become an epidemic in North America, yet our current health care system is ill equipped for treating sufferers. An expert in both conventional and holistic medicine, Dr. Heather Tick has spent twenty-five years treating patients for whom “all else has failed.” Based on her experience, Holistic Pain Relief offers practical guidance to anyone with pain. It includes easy-to-implement solutions for effective and permanent pain relief and also offers help to those with chronic conditions who feel confused, worried, or hopeless.
Dr. Tick presents a new way of looking at pain with a focus on health. By helping you make informed choices about physical, emotional, and spiritual living, Holistic Pain Relief offers possibilities for recovery and information on a wide range of treatment and prevention options, including acupuncture, chiropractic techniques, intramuscular stimulation, dietary supplements, medication, nutrition, and exercise. The result is a realistic — and inspiring — prescription for pain-free living.
"Holistic Pain Relief brings it all together. For the multitudes who suffer — needlessly — from pain, you will find solutions here."
— Christiane Northrup, MD, OB-GYN physician and author of the New York Times bestseller Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
"A revolution is afoot. Dr. Tick examines the many factors that contribute to chronic pain, both medical and nonmedical, and inspires us to take control. What we learn is that where medicine has few options, we ourselves have many."
— Jane Ballantyne, MD, professor of anesthesiology and pain medicine, University of Washington
"Dr. Tick's personal experience of chronic pain and her pioneering practice of team-based, integrative care make her the right voice at the right time. A compelling storyteller, she offers crisp communication on complex topics."
— John Weeks, executive director, Academic Consortium for Complementary and Alternative Health Care
"Heather Tick's book can guide and coach you to heal your life and free your body of pain. The experience will be well worth the effort."
— Bernie Siegel, MD, author of A Book of Miracles and The Art of Healing
"A must-read for all who suffer from chronic pain and those who wish to help them."
— Aviad Haramati, PhD, professor of physiology, Georgetown University
"Thank heaven for Dr. Tick's Holistic Pain Relief. As a physician who has practiced and taught emergency medicine for over thirty years, I frequently encounter people in pain, both acute and chronic, and have often been stymied as to how to help — until now. Dr. Tick's thorough and humane approach to the evaluation and unique comprehensive management of pain is truly a breakthrough. It should be read and embraced by all practitioners of the healing arts."
— Peter W. Rugg, MD, FACEP, past chair, department of emergency medicine, UMass Memorial HealthAlliance Hospital
"Very well done and a pleasure to read, Holistic Pain Relief is a truly helpful example of a self-help book, packed with much more information than the average of the genre."
— John D. Loeser, MD, professor of neurosurgery, University of Washington, and former president, International Association for the Study of Pain
"Dr. Heather Tick has provided a valuable resource for the many people suffering from acute and chronic pain and for all of us who desire a `whole person' approach to optimal well-being — as well as for those health care practitioners interested in a more complete understanding of the use of complementary and alternative medicine or integrative medicine in the context of pain. Her humanism, optimism, and profound commitment to improving the lives of pain sufferers and those under profound stress speak from every page."
— Eric B. Schoomaker, MD, PhD, Lieutenant General, US Army (retired), former Army Surgeon General, and Audrey N. Schoomaker, RN, BSN, E-RYT 500, yoga therapist
"This is a rare book on pain that is comprehensive and accessible yet scientifically grounded. The book is uniquely comprehensible and reassuring to the reader. Dr. Tick is remarkable in her ability to identify what is important and practical and to translate that information for the public."
— Ping Ho, MA, MPH, founding director, Arts and Healing Initiative, UCLA
"Dr. Tick believes in putting power into the hands of the patient by giving them information, resources, and support. She also believes we are witnessing the beginning of a long-needed change in the practice of medicine as practitioners begin to focus on their patients instead of their patient's symptoms. If your customers are suffering, this is the book they need to read."
