Interviewed by Eden Kozlowski,
ATH Co-Editor of Meditation
Dr. David Hanscom, MD
Dr. Hanscom, let’s tell you a little bit more about who he is. He is a board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in complex spine problems. He has expertise in adult and pediatric spinal deformities, however he is now a “salvage surgeon” and operates only as a last resort. He has successfully treated hundreds of patients for chronic pain (and this is a biggie) without surgery. In his book “Back in Control,” he describes his “DOCC” approach. It stands for “Defined, Organized, Comprehensive, Care.” This non-surgical rehabilitation program for chronic pain includes sleep management, reprogramming the nervous system (via stress management using applications like mindfulness, meditation, writing, visualization) and goal setting, to name just a few… which is why I'm so hip on sharing his work...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: There is hope for pain. Many of us, like Dr. Hanscom, are showcasing healing work that delivers options beyond pills, traditional methodologies and surgery. The only challenge... to have these options work for you, you must be willing to take responsibility for your pain and the treatment of it on a deeper more passionate level. Are you willing to do that? If so, the rewards can be endless. Read or listen to learn more...

Controlling the subconscious mind through visualization exercises can be a form of self-hypnosis or a stage of spiritual awareness in which visualization is a powerful tool. Many individuals believe both result in the same state of mind for the individual, making them ultimately the same process...

Editor's Note from David Pratt: Ken McLeod tells us that, "from the Buddhist point of view, the mind-body system, this psycho-physical complex with which we identify, has the seed of attention within it already. We simply provide conditions for sustained active attention to develop. The practice of meditation is the practice of providing these conditions..."
