Panel Discussion

Panel Discussion: “Is Chronic Pain All in Your Brain?”

Moderator: Larry Burk, MD, CEHP Panellists: Judith Swack, PhD, Daniel Benor, MD, ABIHM, Michael Greenwood, MB, BChir There are numerous studies of knee, shoulder, lumbar spine and cervical spine MRI scans showing common abnormalities of aging in in asymptomatic volunteers. This information creates cognitive dissonance in chronic pain patients who are attached to attributing their symptoms to the findings on MRI. Instead the body substitutes physical pain for emotional pain it would rather not face creating what is now referred to as a psychophysiologic disorder. EFT is a valuable way to uninstall these malware programs in the limbic system of the brain, so that hypnosis can be used to upload new healthy programs. Dr. Larry Burk completed his radiology training at the University of Pittsburgh. He is a consulting associate at Duke Hospital and has an EFT coaching practice. His new book is Dreams that Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases Dr. Daniel Benor is a wholistic psychiatric psychotherapist who teaches people to address their issues of body, emotions, mind, relationships and personal spiritual awarenesses with Transformative Wholistic Reintegration (TWR - formerly titled WHEE). His best teachers, his clients, have taught him how to relieve pains of every sort within minutes - on all levels of their being. Pain is a choice, and suffering is optional! Dr. Michael Greenwood is a physician-acupuncturist who developed a dynamic and interactive form of acupuncture (DIA) while working at the Victoria Pain Clinic between 1985-2009. He is the author of Paradox and Healing, Braving the Void, and The Unbroken Field: The Power of Intention in Healing. Dr. Judith Swack is a biochemist/immunologist, Master NLP practitioner, best-selling author and award-winning mind/body healer is the originator of Healing from the Body Level Up, an innovative and powerful methodology with transformative results.

Friday Morning Keynote Address, Keynote

The Joy of Caring

This keynote lecture is about the thrill of helping others. This inspirational talk includes much dialogue to explore burnout prevention for caregivers. The focus of this lecture/workshop is the magic and power of care, not only in the patient’s life but also in the caregiver’s life. JOY OF CARING- A celebration of care and caring. Caring for others isn't a sacrifice to be made, but a need to be met. There is a distinct human need to care for one another, and the purpose of this talk to explore the joy of meeting this primal need to care. We will show some films about care and invite any challenges from the audience. Let go of fear and doubt and embrace love! We will celebrate care to the extent that the concept of "burnout" will be inconceivable. Let your voice be heard. Upon completion of this session, participants of the Joy of Caring will explore how to find joy in caring and how this joy prevents burnout.
