YOUR PATHWAY TO YOUR NEW LIFE STARTS NOW

The DOC (Direct your Own Care) Journey presents a self-directed step-by-step approach to take back control of your care and life.

It is based on modern neuroscience research and has been used successfully by thousands of patients to break free of the grip of mental and physical pain. Anxiety is the pain.

THE SCIENCE:
WHY THE DOC JOURNEY IS SO EFFECTIVE

Why Traditional Treatments Don’t Work

Chronic pain has traditionally been defined as “pain that lasted longer than the expected healing time.” However, recent research has redefined the nature of chronic pain as a neurochemical problem.

The neural circuits created by pain impulses fired at the brain are permanent because they are memorized through repetition and keep your body in a state of high alert.

This is the reason why interventions focused solely on anatomy and structure cannot and will not work. Phantom limb pain is one classic example.

Connect with Your Capacity to Heal

The essence of solving chronic pain is learning how to manage your body’s responses to threat.

Threats, whether physical or mental, fire up your body’s defenses. When this is sustained, physical tissue damage occurs, which feeds the cycle.

By learning skills to lower your body’s stress chemicals, dampen the inflammatory response, and return your body to a relaxed state – when you choose – you can optimize your body’s physiology and your pain levels will drop or disappear. When symptoms return, you have the skills to eliminate it.
