Doctor of Chiropractic, Pain Specialist Delves Into Universal Truth...
In Subtracting Insult from Injury: A Buddheo-Christian Art of Transmuting Pain, author Dr. Alan Cooper draws heavily from his work with patients who have chronic pain or who feel stuck treating their pain issues with addictive medications and taps into modern societal issues, such as the U.S.s escalating opioid epidemic, to illustrate the universal truth behind the human experience of suffering.
Throughout my work in medical clinics, Ive consistently crossed paths with providers who are completely vexed by the prescription opioid epidemic, Dr. Cooper said. The current crisis with drug addiction and overdoses reflects the absolute paucity of truths we humans have regarding our physical, mental and emotional pains. Every pain that every human has suffered, as sad and daunting as they may be, is part of the healing of the Universe.
Focused on providing readers with a gentle and spiritually enriching path toward healing, Subtracting Insult from Injury twines science, philosophy and religion, ultimately guiding people toward an outlook devoid of the fear, blame and resentment that modern societys current understanding of pain often fosters.
