Making Sense of Suffering

Overcoming Trauma and Finding Joy

By Mohan Nair, M.D.

This book was originally written in 1993, towards the end of Dr. Nair’s 14-year experience in treating adults and children with trauma. His efforts culminated in the creation of a program with the help of like-minded mental health professionals where patients with a history of trauma could be treated in a holistic manner. Given the amount of time which has elapsed since he first penned this book, many things have changed and we know much more about the brain and how it and our bodies are affected by the environment. The central issues and concerns raised in the book remain unchanged. There has also been a long overdue interest in the therapeutic use of psychedelics for similar rationale as mine for treating PTSD.


This book represents the abreactive work done with thousands of patients, and in it he discusses in some detail our experience in using narco analysis. Many of the concerns noted and strategies used in abreactive work involving narco analysis will be helpful for both patients and therapists who wish to consider the use of ketamine infusions and psychedelics for treating PTSD, complex PTSD, and unresolved grief.

Making Sense of Suffering

Psychedelic Medicine For Pain Management

By Mohan Nair, M.D.

The purpose of this book is to offer current information to all Americans regarding the ability of psychedelics to alleviate chronic pain and various forms of suffering. It represents the combined experiences of individuals from diverse backgrounds who share a mutual interest in the field of psychedelics and their application for pain relief. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, sense making refers to the act or process of understanding or attributing significance to something. Psychedelics have demonstrated the capacity to transform the indescribable and burdensome sensation of chronic pain, providing alternative perspectives that reduce the overall suffering experienced.
