Living with illness and chronic pain can be intolerable. Even after taking painkillers, the pain returns as aching as before. Stopping the pain immediately is the priority, but whatever you do seems to fail; ignoring or doing nothing still hurts.

Is not your body the only one that suffers; soon, your mind can start to hurt as you relentlessly try to find a way of escaping. Racing thoughts and questions begin to nag. It’s only natural to want to fight back against pain and illness at such times, but what if the struggle makes it worse? And what more effective than to explore the sensations of pain and illness as they rise and fall in your body? This may seem like the worst thing to fathom, but the latest medical advances show that it can be more powerful than prescribed painkillers.

The new treatment for chronic pain and illness is based on the ancient form of meditation known as mindfulness. Mindfulness meditation has been shown in clinical trials to reduce chronic pain by 57 percent. Accomplished meditators can reduce it by over 90 percent. Mindfulness soothes the brain patterns underlying pain and, over time, these changes take root and alter the structure of the brain itself, so that patients no longer feel pain with the same intensity.
