Emile Allen, MD, BCH, CI is the Director and Founder of The Pharmacy Within, a drug-free pain therapy solution for chronic pain, and a Board Certified Hypnotist (BCH) and Clinical Instructor (CI) of Medical Hypnosis. He is the former Chief of Urology and Vice Chair of Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital-La Jolla, California.
He has helped people worldwide through his unique drug-free acute and chronic pain relief technique. Combined with his decades of experience and unique perspective as a surgeon and medical hypnotist, Dr. Allen is advancing the field of Medical Hypnosis for pain management.
Throughout his career, he saw the power of the mind to control post-operative pain with little to no medications. However, when he barely escaped death after being electrocuted while saving a patient’s life in the operating room, he experienced acute and chronic pain first-hand. He truly saw chronic pain from an entirely different perspective, which led him on a journey spanning the globe to better understand the mind-body connection through hypnosis and test the ability of the subconscious mind to control pain for various medical conditions in a variety of cultures.
With his unique background as a surgeon and medical hypnotist, he experienced the challenges in chronic pain management. He discovered several physiological, psychological, and social factors involved in the development of chronic pain. Dr. Allen realized that he needed to redefine chronic pain from the current medical definition for effective chronic pain treatment. He also recognized that the treatment and management of chronic pain couldn’t be solely held in the hands of the health care system; instead, the primary focus needs to be on the person suffering from chronic pain.
This mission led him to develop a groundbreaking, drug-free technique for chronic pain self-management. His process creatively merges the best of medical/surgical knowledge, medical hypnosis, cognitive behavioral therapy, Pavlov’s Law, behavioral modification therapy, peak-performance coaching, and neuro-linguistic programming, all applied with surgical precision.
Dr. Allen’s new book, The Pharmacy Within – The Amazing Ability to Relieve Chronic Pain Drug Free, takes the reader on a journey that provides simple and clear answers to what chronic pain actually is, how it forms, and how it is possible to self-manage, or even resolve chronic pain, drug free within minutes.
As a retired surgeon and now a medical hypnotist and instructor, Dr. Allen enjoys teaching people globally how to manage their chronic pain drug free through his online classes and sessions. His passion for helping people worldwide has made him a two-time international award-winning author and an internationally-recognized speaker.
