Book Description

More than fifty million Americans suffer today from chronic pain. Dr. Scott Brady was one of them. Doctors told him he would live with his back pain for the rest of his life. Having exhausted all options offered by conventional medicine, Dr. Brady overcame his pain using a mind-body-spirit approach¿in an incredible four weeks. In 2000, he founded the Brady Institute, where more than 80 percent of his patients have achieved 80¿100 percent pain relief, without surgery or drugs.
In PAIN FREE FOR LIFE, Dr. Brady sets a clear course for readers to diagnose what is really causing their pain ¿autonomic overload syndrome, which is brought on by the repression of harmful negative emotions¿with profiles of pain-prone personalities and an innovative spiritual health inventory. He reveals the techniques behind his remarkably effective recovery plan, including the practice of depth journaling and prescriptions to boost the power of personal belief.
Dr. Brady¿s approach has helped his patients overcome such conditions as chronic back pain, nagging neck and shoulder pain, migraine or tension headaches, muscle pain, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, and many other chronic pain-associated ailments.
The principles and techniques described in PAIN FREE FOR LIFE will be illustrated by in-depth case studies. His proven 6-week program produces results in as little as thirty minutes a day.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best and most practical TMS guide 12 Jun. 2009
This book is the best layman's introduction to TMS theory out there - the theory that unconscious stress coupled with personality traits can result in out-of-control pain responses in the body.
It outlines a very comprehensive and workable programme for recovery and goes into much more detail of the whole recovery process and the hurdles you may encounter than Dr Sarno's books do.
I can highly recommend this to anyone who's read Dr Sarno's books but been unsatisfied with the few pages at the end which he dedicates to the recovery process.
Dr Brady comes across as a knowledgeable and kind practicianer who has much personal experience with the subject matter.

This is a good read with practical advice. The book I received is an ex-library book, but in clean condition although printed on very cheap 'sugar' paper.

2.0 out of 5 stars Get the original, not this second-rate book. 23 April 2009
Scott Brady is a disciple of John Sarno. Frankly, my impression of this book is that he was trying to make a quick buck off Sarno's technique, The Mindbody Prescription. If he'd offered something new or put the information in a form that makes it more understandable - or added anything of value - then it might be worthwhile. However, it doesn't. Worse, it's repetitive and boring.

The book says that it's divided into chapters based on disease conditions so that information targeted to the specific issues can be presented. What happens instead is repetition of the same stuff over and over, with some rants added in that seem to imply that people who suffer from pain, especially certain conditions, are often just malingerers.

If you're interested in the mind-body connection to pain - and I do believe that there's a great deal of value in the concept - then go to the source. John Sarno, who developed the technique, wrote The Mindbody Prescription: Healing the Body, Healing the Pain. It's written in a readable, but not simplistic, style with great sympathy for those who suffer, yet offers a concept that most would think is not possible - that the problem really does exist in the mind. It isn't condescending, though, and offers a physical reason for how real pain is created by the mind. With that understanding, it may be possible for many people to overcome it. Sarno's book also offers techniques for using his discovery. And it costs significantly less than Brady's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Building on Dr. Sarno's proven methods 5 Jan. 2007
By G Underhill - Published on
Dr. John E. Sarno has been very successfully healing chronic pain through his mindbody treatment methods for over thirty years, and has himself written four books on the subject. Thousands of people have been cured just from reading his books. After a fruitless search through the conventional medical establishment, Dr. Brady was, in fact, finally cured of his own serious chronic pain by Dr. Sarno, who calls the mindbody diagnosis he pioneered; TMS, or Tension Myositis Syndrome.

Dr. Brady began applying Dr. Sarno's techniques successfully to his own pain patients, and expanded on them to bring in the spiritual dimension, in addition to mind and body, which is important for some patients.

Dr. Brady calls his diagnosis; AOS, or Autonomic Overload Syndrome, but it is actually the same thing as TMS, packaged with a more structured 6-week plan for curing chronic pain. And he acknowledges Dr. Sarno as "my mind-body mentor. I appreciate you and am always grateful to you for showing me another way in medicine."

The book is well-written, and is a welcome addition to the growing field of mindbody medicine. Anyone in chronic pain should certainly read this or one of Dr. Sarno's books before even considering surgery, which has a far less successful record of curing chronic pain.

Unfortunately, most medical school students are taught to look for physical causes for physical symptoms, and thus they tend to ignore the emotional or psychological causes that are at root of the current epidemic of chronic pain. Dr. Brady has made an important contribution to overcoming this epidemic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solution worth consideration 4 Jan. 2007
By M. A. Glass - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Those who have suffered from non-specific chronic pain for any length of time may read the title of this book and instantly classify it as fiction. Nothing could be further from the truth. The volume is easy to read, free of scientific jargon describing radical diets, supplements or other programs that are costly and difficult to administer. Contained in this volume is a simple, inexpensive, non-invasive method to take control of one's personal pain, laid out in an easy to understand progression. If you are able to visualize and willing to take the time to be introspective; this could be the catalyst for major change in the quality of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most hope I've had in a long time! 15 Jun. 2007
By Annette Boersma - Published on
I checked this book out of the library and was a bit skeptical. I went straight to the program and skipped all the explanation. I decided to just sit there in the library 'talking' to my pain, and I know it sounds crazy, but it was as if someone unzipped an overtight jacket off my body! I immediately felt like this will work for me. I went home told my husband about it and just burst into tears, for joy I think. I voraciously read everything and decided I can do this. After all my 8 years of testing saying, no lupus, no RA, no, no , no! slightly herniated disc. possible whiplash at one time. blah, blah blah, and oh yes, you must have a stubborn case of fibromyalgia - and sorry, no cure. You'll always have to be careful. Now in 3 days, I can say this is going to work for me. The journaling isn't giving me any surprises but the emotion behind it has shocked me! I'm not there yet, just starting to 'unlayer the onion', but from a continual pain scale of 7 - 9 now to about 3 and I'm smiling and hopeful - that in itself is a miracle! I am ordering this book today because I already know, I won't want to turn it in at the end of my Library 3 weeks!! Try it, what will it hurt - and it could be what you need!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Knew Stress Was Killing My Husband? 15 July 2006
By Julie Jones - Published on
We all know when we walk in to our MD with pain, we will walk out with a pill. My husband went to a chiropractor who wanted $5K up front to help with his pain. Fortuanately we found this book for under $20 and now he won't need a pill from an MD or a year's worth of spinal adjustments!

Through his book Pain Free For Life, Dr. Brady takes the reader through his personal journey from incessant pain to his present state of mental, physical and spiritual wholeness. Dr. Brady outlines an easy to read step by step 6 week program to help the reader understand and overcome the destructive role of stress which manifests itself in the body as physical pain.

One thing is clear after reading this book: this doctor has made a discovery that will give readers a better quality, and no doubt, a longer life. Thank you Dr. Brady for giving my husband , 57, his life back through your enlightening program.

By Dwight Bain - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've known Dr. Scott Brady for fifteen years and have seen him live out his values and grow stronger in spite of setbacks. His new book is a proven method of pain management with cutting edge techniques that put you in control of a better quality of life. If you or someone you love is facing chronic pain this new approach will give you decades of research full of creative ways to find relief for about the same cost as a copayment. Check it out and then let Scott know your thoughts since he is the kind of doctor who really cares about his patients getting results.
