Can pain be a good thing?
According to Dr. Joanne Messenger, pain isn’t only good – it’s an essential tool needed for the road to overall mental and physical health.
"Disease and pain are your body’s way of telling you what is wrong – like where you need to change what you’re doing,” she says.
Joyce talks with Dr. Messenger about her new book, Be in One Peace: Essential Skills for Thriving in the New World, which details how to understand pain as a way to pinpoint mental and physical issues that have been ignored and need to be resolved.
