Our practice has been getting a lot of attention from the fibromyalgia and chronic pain communities. There is a video of a December, 2014 TV interview on the bottom of our other home page about the unique way I work to help chronic pain patients transition from enduring life to enjoying it. Obviously, chronic physical symptoms can take patients onto an emotional roller coaster ride. These patients have often spent a lot of money on ineffective approaches, been given a lot of false hope, and have been misunderstood or even ridiculed by doctors and by those closest to them. There are alternatives to drug therapy for pain.
Jackie Kidder suffered with fibromyalgia for 9 years. I am reproducing her story here with thanks to her and her husband, for those of you who aren't familiar with it. She is now symptom free and off all medication. In fact she works out regularly and vigorously, and once again lives a normal happy life. Following is a description of the approach I have used with her, and with others who have had similar case histories.
Another patient, Denna Ramsey, tells her own story of rapid recovery from FM, relaying her own story and urging you to have hope.
These are only two of many with similar experiences of returning to normal life after years of pain, fatigue and suffering with FM/CIDS.

Our Approach to Treatment
Most of us are very used to thinking about diseases as though they are some type of bad lottery ticket we have won, causing us to suffer. We assume that the problem is some type of a pathogenic organism, or bug. Or perhaps bad genetics. We take a set of symptoms that somebody has, and give it a label. Having named the "disease," we can give it a diagnostic code and write it into a book. The next step is usually to find some type of pharmaceutical agent to suppress the symptoms. We call that treating the disease.
When we have a group of symptoms that seem like they might be related (because they are commonly found in the same people); we define the group of symptoms as a syndrome. So if a person has certain tender points, migrating aches and pains, and they ALSO have interstitial cystitis, chronic fatigue, mental fogginess, and irritable bowel symptoms, we call the conglomerate a syndrome. Then we can use a constellation of drugs and/or other treatments to 'manage' the syndrome.
There is certainly an appropriate place for this approach to human suffering, HOWEVER, I do not believe that it fits the case when it comes to fibromyalgia and other chronic pain disorders.
Over the last decade, increasing numbers of patients have come to my practice seeking help for fibromyalgia and similar conditions. I've had a chance to develop a more integrated approach than the one I used with the two patients mentioned above. There currently isn't anyone else using the exact same approach in any other professional healing arts practice. The download available at the link shown above will give you a better idea of what techniques I use today to help people like you.
