If you’ve ever struggled with chronic pain, anxiety, or depression, you probably know how frustrating it can be. Especially when you’re experiencing real pain and symptoms, but the doctors tell you that your labs are all within “normal” range.
Mainstream medicine is only beginning to recognize the powerful role of the brain in the development of chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. However, decades of research and clinical experience have demonstrated its pivotal role in recovery.
In today’s episode, we’re joined by Christie Uipi. She’s a psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. Christie is also the founder of The Better Mind Center and a key collaborator on the development and research of the Pain Reprocessing Therapy treatment modality.
If you’ve experienced the gap between research and practice that has left you cycling through traditional symptom-management treatments that don’t bring relief, this episode is for you.
As a recovering pain patient herself, Christie is passionate about the field of mind-body medicine. Additionally, she’s committed to changing the way that chronic pain, anxiety, and depression are traditionally treated and understood.
Three things you’ll learn in this episode:
- The mind-body approach to healing anxiety and chronic pain
- Personality traits that may indicate a dysregulated nervous system
- How trauma and nervous system dysregulation can increase chronic pain & anxiety
