From Human to #Metahuman – Can I Reduce Physical Pain? Ask Deepak Chopra!

Are there non-prescriptions ways of decreasing pain?

Any form of physical exercise will reduce pain in almost every chronic illness because exercise gives you an endorphin boost and endorphins have pain-relieving properties.

Another good way to reduce physical pain is by practicing yoga and meditation. Good breathing techniques are very important and they are all extremely useful when tackling pain. Laughter, music, positive social interactions and gentle massages are also good ways to deal with pain.

Common misconceptions are that drinking alcohol or smoking will ease pain but they actually make it worse.

Deepak Chopra MD, FACP, founder of The Chopra Foundation, a non-profit entity for research on well-being and humanitarianism, and Chopra Global, a modern-day health company at the intersection of science and spirituality, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation. Chopra is a Clinical Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of California, San Diego.

He is the author of over 89 books translated into over forty-three languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers. His 90th book and national bestseller, Metahuman: Unleashing Your Infinite Potential (Harmony Books), unlocks the secrets to moving beyond our present limitations to access a field of infinite possibilities. TIME magazine has described Dr. Chopra as “one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.”

    as a chronic opiate user, due to disk and spinal instability, i would like to know how to make the pain relief obtained from meditation last while i’m doing a non meditative activity. thank you!

      I hear that we should try to see all activities as being meditative. I’ve found some relief in taking the advice to look at the pain as an observer of the pain and to stay in the place that observes the pain. Basically to treat the pain as a meditative focal point. Also imagining the energy of the pain being released and sent into the Earth to be transformed. It seems that all of the techniques work better as we practice them and it’s said that after enough practice we never had to practice at all, we could just know at any time but it usually takes practice to realize this or an extremely traumatic event.

    I have had 3 major spine surgeries from a career of heavy lifting. Daily meditation including your guided medications have made my life with chronic pain not only bearable but also happy. Thank you Deepak. I find that when im in the void i am aware that my body feels pain but there is a space between those sensations and my true self. A wonderful post! 🙏❤

    I deal with chronic back pain due to a spinal tumour called meningioma surgery at the t10. It left a hole and surgical scars. Moving helps me the most since the scars need to be moved. But the best temporary relief is by taking CBD oil 😇. I Tried everything; yoga, physiotherapy, psychology, jogging, swimming, Osteopathy , reiki, Eric Pearls reconnective healing, skateboarding, biking, energy transfer reset, meditation, anti depressants, medicine for back pain. The thing that helped me to open the space within-me was getting at the root causes. The thorns that held the pain needed to be seen and cut. Psychologist helped me to see them…all the childhood wounds. Both psychologist and physio worked together to get me back to my feet. The problem is I kept suffering. But all of this helped in my awakening. It is all metaphysical. Meditation clarifies everything so that the whole…the oneness can be seen. That was the greatest medicine of all! Blessings of healing!😇

    Very good, ´´endorphin boost = aerobic, breathing, nostril breathing´´, ´´ music, social, sleep, laughter´´.

    I think this is a big area of difficulty for many people. Pain and other distractions like itching can be a distraction for me meditating. I’d like some advice for dealing with these distractions. I find a lot of value in your advice because you have more experience in seeing life from the right viewpoint.
    I’m working on a Pyramid over ground that vibrates from the cavitation of water that simulates that of the Spine as a way to facilitate healing and assist in achieving altered states of consciousness with Peace and Love as their center.
