Fantastic, insightful and life changing
The Curable app is a life CVHS get for me. It has really helped me get understand myself better and to learn how to take control of my pain and help it disappear. The Podcasts are so insightful and well done. Absolutely love how it’s improved my life!
This podcast and the Curable app completely uprooted what I *thought* I knew about chronic pain. If you are a sufferer, do yourself a favor and listen to this podcast. You won’t regret it. And it *may* change your life.
Give it a try!
This podcast along with the app (even just the free content!) has helped me re-frame my pain and my life. Anyone who is sick of the mainstream medical system and being told that nothing is wrong with them despite being in extreme physical and mental pain will benefit from this if they are open to it. It has personally helped my back pain from a traumatic injury and surgery, IBS, and extreme anxiety.
The teachings in this podcast affirms the fact that there is indeed nothing wrong with you- your brain is just doing its best at its job, but it got a little confused along the way and stuck in unhelpful patterns. The experts help you untangle all of this so that you can literally turn the dial down on your physical pain, because the pain that you feel is real- they don’t dispute that. I am careful about what Information I feed my brain and I listen to what my brain is telling me now. Pain truly is like an emotion- it just wants to be acknowledged, felt, expressed, and treated with compassion and non-judgement. Journaling and meditating can help immensely with this. The host of this podcast, Laura, does an excellent job! Her voice is soothing and her interviewing skills are great! So grateful to have been opened up to this whole new world. I don’t feel broken for the first time in 4 years.
