Stop Being Your Symptoms and Start Being Yourself LP
Do you suffer from ongoing pain or chronic medical symptoms such as fatigue, lower back pain, arthritis, acid indigestion, insomnia, or migraines? Do they interfere with your family time or your work? Have you been forced to give up activities that you enjoy?
Thirty percent of the population suffers from illnesses that respond only partially to conventional medicine. But this doesn't mean that there is no relief in sight.
Dr. Arthur Barsky, a pioneer in the field of mind-body medicine, has found that changing the way you think about your illness can have a remarkable effect on how you experience your symptoms. At Harvard Medical School, he developed "Stop Being Your Symptoms and Start Being Yourself," a breakthrough six-week program that is scientifically tested, unique, and simple to learn. Through hundreds of exercises, worksheets, and patient examples, it teaches patients to master the five psychological factors that contribute to chronic symptoms.
You may not be able to completely eliminate your symptoms. But it is possible to control them rather than letting them control you. So stop being your symptoms—and start living the life you deserve.
