La douleur peut s'immiscer dans notre vie de diverses façons et bouleverser notre quotidien. Lorsqu'elle devient chronique, elle peut nous faire souffrir autant physiquement que moralement. Le but de cet ouvrage est de remonter jusqu'aux racines de la douleur, sous toutes ses formes, pour mieux la comprendre et ainsi mieux la traiter et la soulager.
Puisant dans sa vaste expérience auprès de milliers de patients, le Dr Brouillard y livre des explications éclairantes sur les causes physiques et psychologiques de la douleur. Surtout, il présente un éventail d'avenues possibles pour s'en libérer, des plus récentes percées médicales aux approches complémentaires, sans oublier les solutions naturelles, applicables à la maison.
À l'aide de techniques souvent simples et en favorisant une meilleure connaissance de nous-mêmes, il nous fournit tous les outils nécessaires pour reprendre en mains notre santé et enfin vivre plus librement.

Abstract
"'Let your illness be your spiritual teacher!' Make a statement like that to someone who's struggled for years with, say, rheumatoid arthritis, and be prepared for an eye roll (at best). To Peter Fernando's credit, he makes that statement, and no such impulse arises. We believe him because he's been there himself and because he backs up the statements with his own real experiences and with real wisdom from the Buddhist teachings. Fernando starts by defusing the pernicious belief that anyone is somehow responsible for their illness: you're not "wrong" for being sick. Then, having gotten past self-blame, one can begin to learn self-kindness. From there, one moves to mindfulness practices and cultivating body awareness?even if body awareness is distasteful when the body isn't behaving the way you like. Further topics include getting intimate with dark emotions (fear, despair, the scary future, frustration, grief, etc.), learning equanimity (rejoicing in the good fortune of those who don't share your suffering), cultivating healthy relationships in the midst of everything, and practical advice for living with pain. Each chapter comes with one or more practices or guided meditations for putting the teachings into practice"--from publisher.

Abstract
The book uses marbles, a toy all children are familiar with, as a measure of the mother's limited energy. Using a jar and some marbles, the author conveys difficult concepts in terms that children can understand. These concepts include taking preemptive rests to have more energy later, finding alternate ways to perform tasks that use less energy, and postexertional malaise. The concepts in the book are relevant to someone with one or both illnesses, and it can be applied to other physically limiting conditions as well. The book reminds the reader that although illness may limit a mother's activities, it never diminishes a mother's love for her children. The book is fun and yet realistic and will capture your child's heart.

"This book is designed to help you manage your pain so that you can get on with living a satisfying, fulfilling life. Chronic pain includes many types of conditions from a variety of causes. Despite these differences, all readers of this book have one very important thing in common ? you are living with pain every day. To help you discover strategies and skills that will make a difference, this book emphasizes four concepts:
"1. Each person with chronic pain is unique. There is no one treatment or approach that is right for everybody.
"2. There are a number of things you can do to feel better. These things will not eliminate pain, but they will help you to better manage pain, and help you to become more active and more involved in life.
"3. With knowledge and experimentation, you are the best judge of which self-management tools and techniques are best for you.
"4. The responsibility for managing your chronic pain day-to-day rests with you, not anybody else. Many people can be of help to you ? your family and friends, your health care team. But, in the end, the responsibility for self-management is yours.
"Acknowledging that overcoming chronic pain is a daily challenge, this book provides you with the self-management tools to help you meet that challenge"--from Publisher

Regardless of whether your chronic pain includes endometriosis, IC, or IBS, or a combination of all of these, following an anti-inflammatory diet can help to reduce the intensity of the pain you are experiencing. It is also essential to include lifestyle changes, such as increased activity and exercise as well as stress reduction. Stress reduction helps to calm the nervous system, which can then reduce inflammation and pain.

The children of people with chronic illness and pain suffer quietly. "Why Does Mommy Hurt?" is a joyful, yet honest, portrayal of family life burdened with chronic illness. This is a delightful story told by a young boy learning to understand and cope with his mother's illness. The story creates natural opportunities for families to talk about both the symptoms of chronic illness, and how they affect family life. Even more importantly, the story puts power into the hands of the children. It also offers a helpful "Tips and Resources" section for parents! This book is appropriate for a wide-variety of illnesses associated with chronic pain, such as: Lupus, Lyme Disease, ME, CFS, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Autoimmune Disease, and many others.

Abstract
This book takes an integrated approach to pain rehabilitation and combines pain science, rehabilitation and yoga with evidence-based approaches from respected contributors. They demonstrate how to integrate the concepts, philosophies and practices of yoga and pain science in working with people in pain. The book expounds on the movement to a more patient-valued, partnership-based biopsychosocial-spiritual model of healthcare in which the patient is an active and empowered participant, as opposed to a model in which the healthcare provider is 'fixing' the passive patient.
