Dr. Mas Massoumi, a hand surgeon from Palm Beach, Florida, says it is proven that those who are optimists usually have at least 20 percent better relief of their pain without any medication (than those who are not optimistic). On the other hand, those who are pessimists have at least 10 percent worse result than the average patients who are not thinking negatively.

Dr. Mas Massoum believes that a positive attitude and consciously switching to positive thought could distract our brains from feeling pain.

He knows that not every condition lends itself to operating, and not every patient wants surgery even if it is indicated. He suggests that those suffering look into meditation, yoga, breathing techniques and even prayer to relieve pain. He very much believes in the mind’s ability to help control the body’s pain.
