016: Taking Your Mind Off The Pain with Philip Robert

We have all experienced some sort of pain in our lives, but what would you do if you were diagnosed with a nerve disease and told you would be in physical pain for the rest of your life?  In fact, pain so severe that it is ranked highest on the pain scale and there’s no known cure? Is it possible to take our mind off our pain? Perhaps shift our perception of pain? They say pain is inevitable but suffering is optional and our guest today is living proof of just that.

In this episode, I interview Philip Robert who is the founder of the Burning Limb Foundation.  Their mission is to provide help for those suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.  After seeing first hand the devastation caused by this horrible disease, Philip felt the need to create a place where they can give hope to those suffering CRPS and other related illnesses to find a voice so they won’t have to fight it alone.

Philip has battled with several health issues and he will share how he is now in remission from CRPS.  He is the first person I have ever met that is in remission and I can’t wait to share his experience with you.   

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • What is ‘Invisible Illness’?
  • Philip’s CRPS diagnosis story
  • What motivated Philip to keep going every single day despite living with pain
  • How to exercise when you are in pain
  • Distracting your pain
  • How to find hope when your world seems hopeless
  • How he got into remission
  • What Burning Limb Foundation is all about
  • Finding the right support group
  • Philip’s definition of resilience
