Healing through Chronic Pain

Praise from People in Pain

“I think that anyone suffering from pelvic pain (or any chronic pain condition) would benefit from reading this book. If you have tried the usual methods and still have pain, you might want to consider the other aspects of healing beyond just the physical. I am still exploring these multiple facets of my own healing, and I am very appreciative of Mary Ruth’s openness in sharing the personal details of her own healing journey in Healing Through Chronic Pain. Her story truly shows that no matter the depths of your pain, there is hope!”

— Sarah Holcomb. Author, When Sex Hurts There Is Hope (blog)


“I really enjoyed the book and found that it resonated with my experience of this illness.”

— Susannah Fraser. Communications and Liaison Officer, UK Cystitis and Overactive Bladder Foundation

“Recently read your wonderful book. I can’t tell you how helpful it has been as I began my own journey with the pain clinic. Thank you for your bravery, honesty and compassion.”

— Annie Buchanan


“When you read Ms. Velicki’s book, you don’t feel alone in your pain. You find that as time goes on, you come into contact with people who ‘get it’ because they’ve been there.”

— Lynne LaBianca


“Great book describing a woman's journey about healing by moving away from traditional scientific thinking to understanding the body as a whole (mind, body, and spirit) and how that led to relief from chronic pain. I've been through a very similar journey (just pain on a different location) and she hits everything spot on. I'd recommend this for anyone dealing with chronic pain.”

 “I am so glad God blessed you with the gift of writing and you in turn blessed me with a gift of words I needed to hear, exactly when I needed to hear them. I feel like saying thank you is not enough. God bless you for helping me. You helped me in so many ways; if I listed all the ways, I would be typing this message for days!”

— Mady Henderson


“I appreciate your honesty, vulnerability, and willingness to share your healing journey.”

— Andrea Kortenhoven


“I just finished reading your book, Healing Through Chronic Pain, and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the story. It seems that you and I started at a similar place mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, when chronic pain reared its interfering head. However, it seems that you and I also were able to transform the experience of chronic pain into a catalyst for personal growth. It was refreshing to read about the experiences of a fellow traveler on this healing journey.”
