Show Notes

This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Professor Howard Schubiner, mind-body medicine practitioner, all about pain. Prof Schubiner discusses his introduction into mind-body medicine early in his career as a doctor after being made aware of it from a friend who had personal experience of a long term pain being resolved through pain reprocessing techniques (PRT). Prof Schubiner today on the podcast discusses this, what pain actually is,  what conditions there are clinical trials to illustrate its effectiveness, how to determine if your pain is structural versus emotional, and what treatment looks like. They discuss PRT and also emotional awareness and expression therapy (EAET) and how this can help with mental health disorders, chronic fatigue and why it could be helpful for long covid and weight loss resistance. A lot of awesome information in this podcast, with numerous resources to support his work, you will enjoy it.

Dr Howard Schubiner is board-certified in paediatrics, adolescent medicine, and internal medicine. He was a full Professor at Wayne State University for 18 years and now works at Providence Hospital in Southfield, MI, USA. He has authored over 60 scientific publications and has given over 250 lectures to scientific audiences regionally, nationally and internationally on topics related to adolescent medicine, ADHD, and stress reduction.

Importantly, Dr Schubiner is the founder and director of the Mind Body Medicine Program at Providence Hospital. This program uses the most current research methodologies to treat individuals who suffer from the Mind Body Syndrome (MBS) or Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) as described by Dr John Sarno. Dr Schubiner has created a program that uses both meditative and cutting edge psychological techniques to help individuals with chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia, whiplash, back and neck pain, myofascial pain, TMJ syndrome, tension and migraine headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, irritable bladder syndrome, insomnia, anxiety, and other related conditions.

What is Mikkipedia?

Mikkipedia is an exploration in all things health, well being, fitness, food and nutrition. I sit down with scientists, doctors, professors, practitioners and people who have a wealth of experience and have a conversation that takes a deep dive into their area of expertise. I love translating science into a language that people understand, so while some of the conversations will be pretty in-depth, you will come away with some practical tips that can be instigated into your everyday life. I hope you enjoy the show!
