Total Recovery: Solving the Mystery of Chronic Pain and Depression

Dr. Gary Kaplan, DO, with Donna Beech.

Dr. Kaplan is a pioneer of integrative medicine, a clinical associate professor at Georgetown University, director of the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine, consultant to the NIH, and a member of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee at Health and Human Services.

I have known Gary since he was a medical student and have followed his career with great appreciation. He is a REAL doctor!

In Total Recovery, Dr. Kaplan presents a unified theory of chronic pain and depression, drawing on patient stories and cutting-edge research, to reveal how chronic physical and emotional pain are manifestations of the same inflammation, brought on by microglial cells found in the brain and spinal cord. In the book, Kaplan argues that by shutting down inflammation at its source – inside the brain – we can FINALLY have success with diverse and chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, migraines, osteoarthritis, back pain, neuropathy, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, IBS, and many more.

Total Recovery

has been endorsed by Mark Hyman, MD, Andrew Weil, MD, Arthur Agatston, MD, Brian Berman, MD, Tara Brach, PhD, Wayne. B. Jonas, MD, and Woodson Merrell, MD.

The toolkit contains supplemental materials related to the information in the book, including a 3-part video on the Gut-Brain Connection, an 8-minute autogenic meditation instruction, a Health Diary to track potential problem areas in your diet, and a Health Timeline, to help identify if/when a cumulative health pattern has emerged.

I hope you’ll take a look at Dr. Kaplan’s new book. It could change the way you think about chronic pain forever.
