We covered these topics on deconstructing the chronic pain experience

Understanding Chronic Pain:

  • Chronic pain is often misunderstood and approached from a reductionist viewpoint instead of a holistic mind-body-spirit perspective.
  • Chronic pain can be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual, and the brain cannot distinguish between these different types of pain.

Holistic Approach:

  • Western medicine often focuses on symptoms and their physical location, neglecting the emotional and spiritual aspects of chronic pain.
  • I share my personal journey with chronic pain and how it took nearly 30 years to find a doctor who understood its true nature.

The Body’s Stress Response:

  • Chronic pain is linked to the body’s stress response being “stuck” in the “on” position, leading to chronic stress and negative health outcomes.
  • Stress hormones and their metabolites accumulate in the body, causing a range of physical and emotional symptoms.

The Impact of Trauma:

  • Trauma is not just what happens to us but how we internalize and react to those events.
  • Chronic stress and pain often result from unprocessed trauma, leading to protective behaviors and disconnection from oneself.

Importance of Holistic Healing:

  • Addressing chronic pain requires looking beyond the physical symptoms to include emotional and spiritual healing.
  • Practices like meditation, yoga, and mindfulness can significantly improve focus, efficiency, and overall well-being.

Energy in Healing:

  • Energy plays a crucial role in both physical healing and emotional well-being.
  • By understanding and addressing the energy blockages in the body, individuals can promote healing and achieve a more balanced state.

Elizabeth’s Personal Insights:

  • Elizabeth emphasizes the importance of meditation and self-care in managing chronic pain and stress.
  • She shares her daily routine, balancing work, self-care, and rest, and highlights how meditation has made her more effective and efficient in life.


  • Chronic pain and stress are complex issues that require a holistic approach to healing.
  • By understanding the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit, individuals can better manage their pain and promote overall health and well-being.
