What is Healing Through Neuroplasticity Pathways to Pain-Free Living?

Created by Dr. Eleanor Stein, Healing Through Neuroplasticity: Pathways to Pain-Free Living is an online, self-study course that will:

  • Teach you to decrease persistent pain by daily practice to rewire your brain's perception of pain
  • Help you to take back control of your life
  • Help you to get back to the activities you enjoy


The course consists of 9 sessions comprised of instructional videos, online resources and downloadable documents to read offline that you can do from the comfort of your home at your own pace.  All content is based on the material that Dr. Stein has been using in her neuroplasticity-based groups in her medical practice for over 8 years.   


IMPORTANT NOTE: The underlying premise of Healing through Neuroplasticity is that persistent pain is a biomedical condition caused by measurable changes in the structure and function of the central nervous system. The changes are caused by neuroplasticity, the brain’s constant remodelling to adapt to circumstances and environment. Although impacted by the mind, persistent pain is not a psychological or psychosomatic condition.

Healing occurs through the intentional, repeated application of neuroplasticity-based tools to reverse the changes that caused the persistent pain to develop in the first place. To be successful, you have to change your life (thoughts, feelings and behaviors) on a consistent basis to teach your brain that pain is no longer necessary. Purposeful change requires practicing being the new you for about 1 hour/day. If you cannot make this commitment at present, I recommend waiting to register for Healing through Neuroplasticity until you are more able to make this learning and practice a priority. Neuroplasticity is not magic, your brain only rewires if you work at it.

You will learn to reverse the underlying cause of your pain and return your biology to its essential, protective function.

Who is this course for?

  • If you are tired of living with persistent pain, this course is for you.
  • If you have tried everything including drugs, injections, devices, manual treatments, CBT, and more, without success, this course is for you.
  • If you are ready to try something new that you can do yourself without pharmaceutical drugs or expensive treatments, this course is for you.
  • If you can commit to practice the recommended tools an hour a day, this course is for you.

Why take this course?

  • Because you do not have to live with persistent pain.
  • Because less pain = more enjoyment of your life.
  • Because you do not need drugs or expensive treatments.
  • Because this course teaches you techniques that you can use for the rest of your life without continued costs.
  • Because the course comes with my 100% money-back guarantee. You can try Healing through Neuroplasticity risk-free for 30 days.
  • Because in a short amount of time and at a low cost, you get the benefit of what took me years to learn from numerous courses, thousands of research papers, and years of experimentation to see what works best. These tools are how I cured my own pain. I still use these tools every day.
  • Because neuroplasticity really works; publications are emerging showing that neuroplasticity-based strategies change brain structure and function as measured by functional MRI. See my recent blog on the low back pain study.

Dr. Stein has been running neuroplasticity-based groups for over 8 years in her medical practice.  She has proven that for people who do the work, improvement is the rule, not the exception.


What is neuroplasticity and how does it work?

Neuroplasticity is the brain's innate tendency to make new connections between neurons each time a group of neurons fire together. This means that each thought, emotion or action you do becomes hardwired and those you do most often form the strongest neural connections. These connections can cause problems like chronic pain when they go awry. But understanding the biology of neuroplasticity allows us to consciously leverage neuroplasticity to reverse changes that are not serving us. Healing Through Neuroplasticity will teach you the tools you need to effectively rewire your brain for calm, comfort and vitality.


Skeptics are Welcome

At first I, too, was skeptical about the concept of neuroplasticity being able to help me with my symptoms. Now I practice these techniques every day. All I suggest is that you be open-minded and curious. 


A testimonial about Neuroplasticity from a patient

This was my first experience with Neuroplasticity which has become a part of my life now. The course is easy to follow and Eleanor gives easy instructions to help practice. I have great improvement with my MCS symptoms. The course changed my relationship with pain. I don’t get too overwhelmed now as I have tools to handle it and work through it. I feel myself lucky that I found Dr. Stein. I highly recommend it to anyone suffering chronic pain or any chronic illness.

A testimonial from a participant in the pilot release of the online course

"A thought about the course: WOW! What a big undertaking. I appreciate the amount of thought and detail that has gone into the course. I like the format and pacing, and Dr. Steins's delivery is perfect. I have trouble concentrating but stay focused when she is speaking. As a teacher, I appreciate the organization and clarity of each presentation. The content in the slides is just right. I often stop the video to read the slide first and absorb the information. I like that the  -advantage of a self study course over a live course.

The workbook: Amazing detail and helpful links, easy to follow. I chose not to print the workbook because it is so many pages, but plan to read after watching the course content. I might try firing up 2 laptops so I can have the workbook on one screen and the course on another screen."  - KW

Meetup: Neuroplasticity of the Brain

I was the invited speaker on September 21, 2022 for the  Neuroplasticity of the Brain Meetup - a Calgary-based meetup with over 1000 members. In this presentation, I gave a detailed summary of what neuroplasticity is, how it causes pain, how we can leverage it to heal from persistent pain and the neuroplasticity boosters which allow practice to be more effective. These are all topics covered in more depth in Healing through Neuroplasticity. My presentation is 45 minutes followed by a very engaged Q&A session with the attendees. The video recording here is 73 minutes in length. If you are interested in the Meetup group, you can see details and signup here. All newcomers are welcome. There is no cost to join or to attend.

About Eleanor Stein MD, FRCP(C)

As a medical specialist in psychiatry, I have dedicated my practice to ME/CFS, FM and ES for the past 22 years. More recently I work with Long COVID. I got into this field after developing ME/CFS, FM and MCS in 1989. My health symptoms limited my ability to work and function every day for over 28 years.

After decades of trying everything imaginable, in 2017, many of the symptoms, including disabling fatigue, lifted. I think I finally "got it right" for my body. My life now is very full with work, connection and travel. It bears little resemblance to the careful, limited life I led for decades.

As I share what I have learned with my patients, many of them are getting better. So it's not just me - the tools work. And they may help you. By teaching you what I have learned, I hope your pathway to improvement will be faster than mine.
