Natural Awakenings Fairfield & Southern Litchfield Counties

New Free E-Book Features Simple Tips to Ease Pain

To kick off Pain Awareness Month, holistic health coach Deborah Charnes is offering free downloads of her best-selling book September 2 and 3 on Amazon. From the Boxing Ring to the Ashram: Wisdom for Mind, Body and Spirit highlights enjoyable, accessible, inexpensive and effective drug-free practices to minimize both physical and emotional pain. 

For example, she speaks about no matter what, keep smiling. It increases neuropeptides, dopamine, endorphins and serotonin. Sing every day to stimulate the feel-good hormones. Also, just laugh as even simulated laughter releases natural morphine-like opiates. 

“I think this book will help every reader change his or her life,” says the founder of The Ayurvedic Institute, Dr. Vasant Lad.

Unfortunately, one in five adults in America deals with chronic pain. The widespread condition is responsible for hefty health care expenses, job-related disability and negatively affects the emotional well-being of the sufferers. While the CDC discourages addictive drugs for treating pain, synthetic opioids were responsible for 100,000 deaths in 2022. Drawing on a network of mentors and gurus from around the world, Charnes distills life lessons they taught her into a collection that addresses chronic pain. This practical and adaptable guide can help you navigate some of your toughest battles in life.
