All Pain Is In the Brain Hypnosis For Pain Control
Pain is not transmitted to the brain. Injury information is transmitted to the brain. The brain then interprets and translates the information. This means, pain is in the brain It is a perception.
There are many great drugs for treating pain, but they have side effects caused by the fact that drugs have no targeting ability. Once in our system, the drugs are everywhere in our system.
It turns out that our nerve centers and receptors are extremely sensitive and particular. Small fibers are responsible for most of our perception of pain. Large fibers with increased activity can actually reduce pain as demonstrated when you touch something hot (small fiber) and shake your hand or arm or maybe jump up and down (large fiber). This activation of your large fibers tends to block the messages coming from the small fibers.

The Placebo effect
A remarkable phenomenon is when a placebo can sometimes improve a patient’s condition simply because the person has the expectation that it will be helpful. A patient given a placebo, told by a doctor it will work, will most often work. Placebos work in the brain and modify chemicals psychologically.
