Coping with Chronic Pain

Amsterdam_publishers_coping_with_chronic_pain_for_you_and_your_family_&_friendsThree valuable guides on Chronic Pain by Anna Raymann

Amsterdam Publishers has been acting as the agent for three authoritative eBooks on coping with chronic pain by Anna Raymann.

The author worked as a physiotherapist until the age of 40, when her chronic back pains prevented her to work any longer. She then started blogging about her life of dealing with chronic pain and her health, which was deteriorating and stopping her from leading the life she wanted.

Her discovery that many chronic pain patients have difficulty in maintaining a proper social life, led her to write these three eBooks in the series Coping with Chronic Pain – a team effort.

They have been written for three different social circles, since all three have different issues and problems to tackle. The eBooks are practical and offer very clear Dos and Dont’s. They have been well written and offer a lot of insight for both Chronic Pain Patients as well as their social environment. Recommended reading!

Coping with Chronic Pain – a team effort:

Book 1: For You and Your Partner
Book 2: For You and Your Kids
Book 3: For You and Your Family & Friends

The author encourages you to partake in discussions and to leave your review on Amazon. For more information please see: www.supportforchronicpain.com

A few excerpts from the many 5-star reviews the books received:

  • “A Phenomenal Piece of Work – Get This Book and Live a Better Life!!”
  • “This is a very significant guide for everyone of us, as sooner or later we may find ourselves in either position. Don’t wait until the situation arises.”
  • “Anna Raymann understands that no one should suffer alone; not the chronic pain sufferer, family or friends. It is a team effort!”
  • “We all know how debilitating pain can be and how it can affect every area of our life. For those of us who have not experienced chronic pain, it is hard to imagine what that can be like. But most importantly we are often at a loss to know how to deal with the people in pain, so we distance ourselves because we can’t fix the problem, in order to avoid the feelings of guilt and uselessness, or we may say things that are supposed to be supportive when in fact all they do is add to the pain of the sufferer. This book is not only of use to the chronic pain sufferer, but to all people who come in contact with one. I particularly appreciated the fact that the person in pain does not expect us to FIX the problem. The list of all the do’s and don’t are very helpful, particularly the “black” list of things we should never say and the “Letter to a friend”. I cringe at the thought of some the things I have said in such circumstances trying to be positive, in total ignorance of how these “helpful comments” affect the person at the receiving end. This is a very significant guide for everyone of us, as sooner or later we may find ourselves in either position. Don’t wait until the situation arises.”

 

Mindful Weightloss

Many people wish to attain a healthy weight but only few are successful in achieving this goal. They try endless diets and are fed up with gaining weight as soon as they finished with their latest diet. Diets, no matter how good they may be, fail to address self-destructive issues that are often the root of the problem. Compulsive eating is all a matter of the mind!

Mindful Weightloss - Joanna Kortink

The definitive book on losing weight permanently

Mindfulness Weightloss by Joanna Kortink is a practical and uplifting book about weightloss that does not contain any recipes or special diets. Instead, it offers a challenging inward journey that will transform your relationship with food on a permanent basis. Rather than simply losing pounds, it helps you to achieve a healthy weight with lasting results. The author, Joanna Kortink, is a well-known Dutch nutritionist who approaches issues such as weightloss, obesity and compulsive eating from within. View all of her books on Joanna Kortink’s author page.

Mindful weightloss is a very easy to use eight-week program based on “Breaking the spell of emotional eating”. It contains various real-life examples and references to audio tracks with helpful exercises, while offering clear, step-by-step guidelines, based on the proven clinical benefits of mindfulness. The book offers a powerful solution to breaking out of the love-hate relationship with food forever! The method as described in Mindful Weightloss is tried and tested and has already guided countless people towards a healthy weight, and an overall feeling of well-being!
