From the Back Cover
Integrative medical practitioner and pain expert Vicky Vlachonis shares her proven program to replace chronic aches and pains with renewed energy and life-enhancing radiance.
Back problems, nightly headaches, tight shoul-ders, achy feet—all of us have nagging, daily pains that seem to get worse when our lives get busier. While the immediate reaction to pain is to take short-term measures to make it go away, this does nothing to address the underlying cause. In The Body Doesn't Lie, Vicky Vlachonis shows us how to locate the source of our pain, understand its origin and manifestation in the body, and then let it go, using a holistic approach that includes easy-to-implement approaches to diet, exercise, and emotional well-being.
Vlachonis's successful pain-eradication pro-gram was developed over years working with a wide range of clients, from celebrities and CEOs to overworked ballet dancers and working moms. Her Positive Feedback Program guides readers through three stages: Reflect, Release, and Radiate.
The book includes a detailed meal plan with recipes, body maps to identify areas of pain and healing touch points, and step-by-step remedies for specific issues including fatigue, digestive problems, and depression. This groundbreaking approach uses pain as a tool—not the un-defeatable enemy—to help you look and feel better immediately and release your body from physical and emotional pain for good.
