Let us look at the
issues: Whilst we are primarily talking about Whiplash
Injuries it is not to difficult to include any Pain or
illness that defies many treatments or Scientific logic.
The issue is quite
simple. Why is it the Bodies immune system does not

The Body from the
trauma of an incident/accident goes through many phases,
coping strategies, avoidance techniques walking carefully,
reaching carefully and we must not forget the compensation
in perpetuation of whiplash injuries.
Can the thought of
compensation really place a sufferer in the position of not
allowing his/her natural immune system the ability of
repairing the damage?
If this is not the
case why is it when the compensation has been received the
Pain (Whiplash) still remains.
The Mind in
psychological terms seems to play little part in Pain as the
gate theory suggests, especially when all of the Mind
techniques have been tried: Mindfulness, relaxation,
visualisation, bio-feed back and then: steroids, Pain
suppressants, even in Amputation with Phantom Limb Pain.
Still the Pain persists. “WHY.”
In all clinical
studies, it appears the scientist/research medics follow the
same methodology by considering. The illness/Pain is the
problem and only look with reduction techniques for the
biological cause in a cell that does not look or function
It is right and
proper at this time to consider that we as a race of People
must continue the search for the true cause of all illness
and Pain in whatever way is deemed practical at the time.

recover from Whiplash injuries?
During the course
of our life, many times we are traumatised, some times we
know, sometimes we do not, or are unable to face up to the
fact and give credence to the Trauma stored in our Mind,
that is slowly destroying us.
Thus when we have

because it needed a way of telling the world a deep
understanding; “something is wrong” is required.
As our treatment
regimes do not contain the machinery to give this
understanding, the immune system is disabled or restricted -
reduced to a fraction of its capabilities, for as long as
this understanding is not received.

Talking Cures are very capable of bringing about a
resolution of the trauma allowing the immune systems of the
Mind and Body to automatically create repair.
Working on the secure understanding
the Pain for all concerned is infinitely worse than the
trauma or treatment by Talking Cures can ever be.
