Have you ever heard the expression "a dog's life"? People use it in an envious fashion, perhaps today more than ever, to point out how easy dogs have it. Run, fetch, sleep, dream, eat, run and fetch some more. And don't forget sleep!
As humans, we don't quite have this luxury. While our thoughts, inspirations, hopes and emotions separate us from animals - dogs, cats and everything in between - they can make life endlessly complicated if left to their own devices.
Our emotions and thoughts can be powerful and uplifting, inspiring us to reach new heights and accomplish goals no mere animal could ever hope to achieve. They provide us with literature, song, romance, love, laughter and passion. Too often, however, our emotions get the best of us, resulting in prolonged states of anxiety, insomnia and even depression.
But do we have any control over our emotions? If so, what can we do to gain or regain control when we're overwhelmed? It is true that our attitude has an effect on our health. But it is also true that our endocrine system has a lot to do with emotion generation and harmony.
Ladies and gentlemen, it's all about the hormones.
If your endocrine glands are struggling and poor nutrition predisposes them to malfunction, then you may very well find yourself overcome with emotions. For example, fear and anxiety are connected with the health of our adrenal glands. Irritability and anger are related to the thyroid gland. Organ health plays a role, too.
Joy and despair are associated with the heart, guilt and sadness reflect the lung and worry and obsession mirror the digestive organs. These are functional relationships observed for thousands of years and reflected in Oriental medicine. There is a balance to be had, which rests to a great degree upon what we put in our mouths and what we are exposed to in our environment. These are the hidden health problems.
Like so many of our emotions, anxiety is both a blessing and a curse. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), "Fear and anxiety are part of life.' You may feel anxious before you take a test or walk down a dark street. This kind of anxiety is useful - it can make you more alert or careful. It usually ends soon after you are out of the situation that caused it."
What if it doesn't go away? What happens when anxiety becomes less useful - and more all consuming? "For millions of people in the United States," concludes the NIMH, "the anxiety does not go away, and gets worse over time. They may have chest pains or nightmares. They may even be afraid to leave home."
The line between a healthy level of anxiety and an unhealthy one is thin, and personal. Only you can know what feels "comfortable" for you, but I caution you to pay careful attention to this "thin anxiety line." Remember, the body is not a whiner and your high anxiety is most likely the reflection of a hidden health problem.
"KE" is a patient who found increased levels of anxiety to be a major concern. Like so many sufferers of deep and persistent anxiety, he suffered from multiple conditions. In his case, these conditions included chronic pain, sinus infections and digestive disturbances. These concerns, combined with the already persistent state of anxiety he'd been living under, had a ripple effect that had him seeking professional help. I'll let him explain:
"When I came to see Paul I was having a lot of anxiety and heartburn plus muscle pain, joint pain and sinus infections. I was taking Intermax minerals and Airborne and there were no changes.
Since I have been coming to AcuNatural Family Healthcare I have no more anxiety, heartburn, sinus infections or muscle pain and surprisingly, the liver spots on my skin are gone too. There is a 95% improvement in my joint pain. AND as an added bonus I have lost 35 pounds. Now, when I have a hard day at work it takes about a half of a day to recover when it used to take a couple of days."
Like so many other patients suffering with emotional conditions, "KE" blamed his condition on stress. But life is stressful. Right? His daily stress did not change a bit and yet, with the proper health improvement program, his debilitating conditions melted away. So don't be misled. Stress is not the sole enemy. By getting: the tools you need to gain control of your emotions, you will find your world changing dramatically.
Much like anxiety, stress can be both positive and negative. According to the NIMH: "We all have stress sometimes. For some people, it happens before having to speak in public. For other people, it might be before a first date. What causes stress for you may not be stressful for someone else. Sometimes stress is helpful - it can encourage you to meet a deadline or get things done. But long term stress can increase the risk of diseases like depression, heart disease and a variety of other problems."
Pay attention! "If you feel yourself breaking down under the stress, look around and make changes if you can. Delegate or drop a few activities. Take time for yourself, and include physical exercise and some form of contemplation. But be aware that poor nutrition is by far the most important factor you must face. Fact! Beneath it all, poor nutrition is the "2,OOO-pound rhino" in the room, and you have to do something about it. You owe it to yourself and to your family.
How much stress is too much? The answer is quite personal, but I think sharing this story from a female patient named "CB" might help:
"I am 34 years old and was battling a deep depression. I had broken down and after seven years decided that I would get drugs to treat my illness. My medical doctor instantly prescribed a anti-depressant after seeing my Beck Inventory score of 39, the highest score he had seen in five years. I took my first pill and upon rising the next morning could not function. I was extremely faint, dizzy and super nauseous. My head hurt and I was crying. I am thankful for this experience because I knew I didn't want to live with negative side effects my whole life. The next day I came to see Paul [Rosen]. I knew I had to try acupuncture again, as it was what saved me three years earlier from depression. After my acupuncture treatment, Paul told me about [Nutrition Response TestingSM].
"I started the program after being tested sensitive to soy, wheat, sugar and dairy. Two days later, I left on my prescheduled vacation at the beach for four days. I was very diligent at taking my supplements and stayed away from all the foods that were found to be bad for me. By the time I returned on Saturday evening, I felt 95% better! Even after returning to normal life, getting up at 6am to fix my husband's lunch and getting my 11-year-old and 7-year-old off to school at 8am and starting my day with my 4-year-old and 1 ½ year-old, I still felt 80 - 85% better than I had just one week earlier. While on vacation, I had the book Paul had given me, Going Back to the Basics of Human Health.
"That book helped solidify that sugar is not in my future and that gave me extra strength to 'Just say no to sugar!' I went back to my medical doctor three weeks to the day after he prescribed drugs. He could not believe how great I looked and felt. He asked how I liked the other drug he gave me samples of and I told him I never tried it. I told him about NRT and acupuncture and he was glad to see me so much better. He had me take the Beck Inventory test again and I scored "O"!!! Don't let another day go by before having a [Nutrition Response Testing evaluation]. The #1 thing I have noticed is that my hundreds of negative feelings and thoughts are GONE!! Thankyou, Paul, and thank you, God!"
The thing I love about this story is how much it says about "CB" as a person. I am grateful to her for acknowledging me as part of her recovery, but the truth of the matter is her success was dependent upon her willingness (1) to be open to something new and (2) to follow through with the recommendations. Without these two things, neither "CB" nor anyone else would benefit from what was clearly the blueprint for her success.
Remember, you can't get healthy – or stay healthy – if you are not involved. I am not here to knock your medical doctor or traditional medicine. I am here to offer a point-counterpoint evaluation of the various disorders and ailments discussed in Part 2 of this book (The Great Health Heist) so that you know there is a choice - and the choice is up to you.
(The following is a quoted excerpt, pages 159-166, from the Book The Great Health Heist © by Paul Rosen J.D.,L.Ac. Published by Warren Publishing, Inc.)
Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Conditions
Nutrition Response TestingSM holds out hope for a variety of conditions. Which of those conditions are the most important? The answer, like so much of Nutrition Response Testing's best results, rests squarely with you. For instance, if brittle nails are your biggest problem, than that is the most important symptom I can help you with. If it's high blood pressure, than that's the most important condition - to you.
So it goes with the eye, ear, nose and throat conditions I see quite often, two of the most popular being runny nose and watery eyes. In fact, "SL" is a typical patient in this regard, as you'll soon see.
" For 30 years I have dealt with allergy symptoms including runny nose, watery eyes and headaches. To make matters worse, I also experienced TMJ, upper back pain, stiffness and tiredness.
In the past, I have spent tens of thousands of dollars going to every type of doctor and alternative healthcare professional imaginable. Although some of the conditions improved, as I aged, they were still bothering me. There has been a notable improvement now that Paul has helped me isolate the "stressors" on my system and really pinpoint my chronic hyperthyroid condition as the culprit behind most of my physical complaints. My health is improving weekly and I have made a major life-style change which I know will benefit me and give me the quality of life I have been searching for."
We have a tendency to discount so-called "lesser symptoms" such as runny nose and watery eyes. But if you've ever dealt with them on a persistent or even casual basis, you'll know firsthand that they're anything but. Take your nagging cough, for instance. Not long ago, a patient we'll call "TS" presented us with this very symptom, which at first started as a nuisance but might have been a sign of something more serious if she had waited much longer to schedule an appointment:
"I was coughing and blowing my nose so many times a day I thought I should invest in the Kleenex Company. I was driving my husband and co-workers crazy! I went to work tired every day. I wanted to go right to bed as soon as I came home from work. I could sleep Saturday and Sunday until noon or 2pm. Now [after Nutrition Response Testing] I can breathe and not cough! I don't have postnasal drip! I get up feeling refreshed and I have energy all day. This has changed my life in just seven days. I have also lost two pounds!"
Please heed the message that no symptom is more important than any other. In "TS's" case, a nagging cough was just that, a nag that was easily remedied. But in other cases I've seen patients complain, almost apologetically, of similar symptoms that turned out to be much more serious than at first indicated.
The best part about Nutrition Response Testing is that it's more than just a method for evaluation; it provides you with a life style fit for you. I don't just have patients. I have relationships. Why do you think I'm able to include so many personal testimonials on these pages? My patients become passionate about living a new lifestyle, one that is personal and created specifically for them. This is not "medicine by numbers." It is a custom-designed treatment program for individuals who need it – and it changes their lives drastically for the better.
(The following is a quoted excerpt, pages 183-186, from the Book The Great Health Heist © by Paul Rosen J.D.,L.Ac. Published by Warren Publishing, Inc.)
Low energy might not be considered "painful" to some, but ask long-time sufferers and they'll tell you that not having enough "get up and go" can be as deleterious as any of the painful discomfort we've discussed earlier, such as migraines and arthritis.
Take "EL" who, like many of us, wasn't a morning person. But his symptoms went much deeper. He explains, "I had low energy. I was always tired in the morning. Now [after Nutrition Response TestingSM], I usually wake up refreshed. I feel good with less sleep. I have more energy also."
Low energy can often be associated with digestive discomfort and when the two meet head-on, patients can be doubly uncomfortable. Such was the case with "LR," who complained, "I had little energy and a lot of digestive discomfort. Herbs and acupuncture helped, but it constantly reoccurred. I also suffered with joint pain and backaches, along with neck pain. After beginning the [Nutrition Response Testing] program, I began to see major improvements. As long as I eat only the foods that I am allowed, I have little or no discomfort. I recently had a reoccurrence of symptoms and sought treatment. A laser light was used on both ear lobes and within two days - I felt great! I continue using herbs along with the occasional treatment in hopes that over time I will be able to adapt my life to constant healthy foods and little or no treatment."
Like many patients, "DM" was experiencing low back pain as well as a variety of other maladies that all seemed related – and untreatable by traditional medicine. "DM" explains, "I had little energy, felt run down, and had shoulder and back pain. My muscles and joints had aches and pains; getting out of the car was a chore. I was unable to run due to extreme lower back pain from the jarring. After just three days on the [Nutrition Response Testing] program, my shoulder pain was gone. Now, after two weeks on the program, my back pain has greatly decreased and I am able to run. I can get out of the car much faster and easier and don't feel like an old man when I do it. My muscles and joints feel much better. I have more energy. I am able to function at work at 6am, and the 10-hour days don't wear me out like they used to do."
Some types of pain are more pronounced than others. Some come unannounced and unexplained. Such was the case with "CF" who found himself a pain-sufferer one morning. "I woke up with severe rib pain on Tuesday, April 15th," he explains, recalling the very day his pain began. "I couldn't sleep on my bed but had to sleep in my recliner. The pain kept me up during the night and was mild to intense during the day. [Acupuncture] treatments were given on April 21, 23, 25 and 28. On April 21, I was unable to take more than half a breath: After the initial treatment, breathing came back to about 80%. Subsequent treatment brought relief from pain. After April 28, I was once again able to sleep in bed. As of today (May 2, 2003), I am barely aware of any discomfort. I prayed that the Lord would heal me and I think he used Paul Rosen to accomplish this."
"LS," like many patients, was more concerned for a family member than she was for herself. In this case, she brought her daughter in for treatment - and just in time!
"My daughter Sara, age 11, had stomach pain for over a year to the point of vomiting and uncontrollable shaking. The doctors diagnosed her with functional abdominal pain. After a year of sleepless nights and seeing my daughter in pain, we were not satisfied with this answer. A friend of ours mentioned her results from being on a [Nutrition Response Testing] program at Paul Rosen's office. It sounded a little 'out there, ' but we were willing to try anything at this point ...this program has been well worth it. After approximately one and a half months on the program, my daughter has had an incredible turnaround in her health, which is reflected in every part of her life. Her little vivacious attitude is back. She is able to sleep at night, no vomiting or shaking, and no pain in her stomach. This happened gradually, but quicker than I had expected."
Sometimes pain leads to loss of sleep, which can, in turn, lead to low energy. Sometimes the reverse is true and lack of sleep and low energy lead to mysterious and painful symptoms. Such was the case of "LB," who wrote: "I have chronic pain in my legs and hips, as well as extreme tightness in the muscles. After only one week on the [Nutrition Response Testing] program, I feel better. I am more energized when I wake up and the pain and soreness are not as intense as they used to be."
Finally, an inspiring story from "BS," who wrote to express her relief after some digestive issues, which were affecting both her sleep and her job performance, improved. "I used to take Ibuprofen and Aleve for pain and a prescription for digestive problems. I also took Lactaid to assist in digesting dairy products. I was only sleeping about three hours at a time because of the pain and digestive problems: Now [after Nutrition Response Testing], I take none of the above and sleep six hours at a time and sometimes nine. My stamina improves every day. I tutor at an elementary school, and am around lots of sniffles and sneezes, and haven't gotten a cold this Spring. When my husband recently had the stomach flu for six days, I stayed healthy."
I hope these successful client testimonials inspire you to find the "missing piece" to your own healing process and permanent relief from your painful condition. Whether it's chronic pain, isolated pain, post-surgical pain, pain from arthritis, digestive troubles or low energy, any pain is too much pain. We humans are designed to be pain-free. If you are experiencing more pain rather than less pain, you're simply not experiencing life fully.
(The following is a quoted excerpt, pages 122-126, from the Book The Great Health Heist © by Paul Rosen J.D.,L.Ac. Published by Warren Publishing, Inc.)
Neurological conditions are so common and so profligate that I could write a book on them alone. How common? According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), "More than 600 disorders afflict the nervous system. Common disorders such as stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and autism are well known. Many other neurological disorders are rare, known only to the patients and families affected, their doctors, and scientists who look to rare disorders for clues to a general understanding of the brain as well as for treatments for specific diseases. Neurological disorders strike an estimated 50 million Americans each year, exacting an incalculable personal toll and an annual economic cost of hundreds of billions of dollars in medical expenses and lost productivity."
Such a huge quantity of disorders, many of them severe, makes a catchall chapter (like this last one in my book) quite a challenge. But, as with all things emotional or physical, it boils downto the "patient of one" You. What is your disorder? What are your symptoms? How do they affect your health, your hope, your present and your future?
A kind woman, PR, wrote me to explain how Nutrition Reponse TestingSM helped her overcome her diabetic neuropathy and subsequent loss of balance:
"When I started with Mr. Rosen, I was taking three medications twice a day for diabetes, one for high blood pressure and one for thyroid. My blood pressure was always something over 90 or above, and my blood sugar levels were always high in the morning, sometimes normal [but] mostly elevated during the day. I have had pain in my feet for years and spider veins around my ankles and have been overweight most of my life.
"One of the things that I noticed was that when I closed my eyes and was standing up, I would lose my balance. [Since being on my nutrition program] the biggest change in this short period of time is the change in my medications. I now only take one diabetes pill a day instead of two. I have stopped taking blood pressure medication altogether. My blood pressure readings are between 123-140 over 79-85. This is much better than it was when I was taking the medication. I have not been falling over lately because my balance is better. I find I have more energy. The purple veins on my ankles are now going away and I have more feeling in my feet."
It might surprise you that Nutrition Response Testing can affect something as serious sounding and imposing as a neurological condition. However, after all, the body is the perpetual healing machine! In other words, the body knows only two states: balance or imbalance. Other conditions that my colleagues and I successfully handle:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Carpal tunnel
If you read back over the previous chapters in Part 2 of this book (The Great Health Heist ), you will see that a lack of balance is at the heart of our bodies' malfunctioning. In PR's case, her lack of physical balance reflected a disruption in the body's homeostasis. But in every case noted in this book, a "lack of nutritional balance" is at the root of the problem. This is true whether it is a woman's body or a man's, whether jt is a young body or old, whether the symptoms are brittle nails or an enlarged prostate.
When the body is out of whack, it lets us know. That is why we must be in tune with our own body's "check engine" lights such as muscle weakness, numbness, twitching or shaking, high blood pressure, frequent urination, heightened anxiety or hot flashes.
We do our bodies a great disservice when we give too much importance to certain symptoms, like the brain or the heart, and not enough to others, like the skin and hair or the ears, nose and throat. To me, all symptoms are serious. That's because with Nutrition Response Testing we evaluate the body as a whole and not just the "biggest," "best" or "most important" parts.
The sooner you stop thinking of your body as Kentucky Fried Chicken (that is, a pile of pieces and parts, some more important than others), the faster your hidden health problems will be discovered using Nutrition Response Testing - and the sooner you will feel better.
(The following is a quoted excerpt, pages 191-195, from the Book The Great Health Heist © by Paul Rosen J.D.,L.Ac. Published by Warren Publishing, Inc.)
Few trials in this life are as disruptive as the appearance, and continuation, of pain. Be it frequent, severe, chronic or sudden, any type of pain immediately brings us to our own personal ground zero; it calls to mind our distant childhood, when life was lived in absolutes of black and white, happy or sad, joyful or fearful, painful or pain-free.
When pain appears in any body part, like the head, neck or back, or joints like shoulder, elbow, wrist or fingers, hips, knees, ankles or toes, whether or not these conditions are labeled as sciatica, arthritis, migraines or fibromyalgia, we become instant Neanderthals, forgetting our capacity for logic and reason, and act out of that most basic and primal humanoid reaction: relief.
In this state of "temporary insanity," we will grasp at any straw to relieve our pain. Liquid, powder, solid, capsule, whatever it takes: If the label gets our attention with snappy colors and the face of a smiling, pain-free person and promises us "speedy relief," we'll take it!
And, much like those early cavemen and cavewomen, we immediately start "hunting and gathering" the nearest pain remedies.
Try watching less than an hour of television at any time of the day or night and count the contents of the few dozen commercials you see.
No doubt a solid portion of those advertisements are for "fast," "quick" or even "instant" relief of a variety of pains.
The same can be said of our grocery, convenience, department and especially our drug stores. How many aisles – not shelves, but aisles - are reserved for "cures" for our pain? From aspirin to vapor rubs to portable heating pads to quick tabs to headache patches to oral toothache remedies to cushions to ease our foot pain, there truly is a "pill for every ill."
Naturally, your pain is "Big Business" to our friends in traditional medicine, in general, and to the pharmaceutical companies, in particular. According to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), "Overall, while the pharmaceutical market doubled to $145 billion between 1996 and 2000, the painkiller market tripled to $1.8 billion over the same period."
And according to the DEA, " ... the increase in production of painkillers can be linked to the misuse or abuse factor. Although there is no precise statistic on how many persons misused or abused prescription painkillers, it is estimated that in 1999, four million Americans over the age of 12 used prescription pain relievers, stimulants or sedatives for 'non-medical' reasons."
As always, this chapter (from book The Great Health Heist) is in direct response to this distressing phenomenon. I want to show you the alternative strategy for whatever kind of pain you're feeling. Don't become a statistic and fall into the pain-medication trap. After all, there's a reason they're called "medications" and not "cures." (A more appropriate term might be "bandage" because all they really do is cover up the pain so that you can find some temporary relief.)
Nutrition Response TestingSM offers more than temporary relief. This exciting new technology actually (1) identifies the root cause of the problem and (2) provides a personal health improvement program that works. When you know better, you do better. Nutrition Response Testing helps you know better so that you can do better.

Headaches / Migraines
Anyone who has ever had a severe headache, let alone a migraine, knows that such pain can often be intense and, at times, even debilitating. The New York Times reported in an article dated August 8, 2006, that the World Health Organization (WHO) ranks migraines among the most disabling ills. Some 28 million Americans suffer with migraines while many millions more have them in milder forms. Employers lose the equivalent of $13 billion in lost productivity, with another $1 billion spent on medical care. All in all, statistics show that almost 18% of women and 6% of men experience migraines between puberty and 40 years of age.
Common triggers causing migraines are weather, missing a meal, stress, and alcohol and food reactions. A recent study shows that over half the sufferers consider crying to be a trigger. However, the bottom line is that, like most other symptoms, it is the autonomic nervous system reminding us that we are not heeding the warning signs.
Suppressive medication for migraines includes painkillers such as Imitrex, Zomig and Frova. These are triptans, and the use of these drugs requires active monitoring by a medical doctor because potential side effects, such as heart complications, can be severe. Then there are the NSAIDS, or non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. An example of this group is Ibuprofen. Recent studies reveal serious side effects, including liver, kidney or stomach problems. In addition, they can cause rebound headaches. Soon, not only are you experiencing: headaches from a source which is not clearly known, but you may also get additional headaches from the very drugs you take!
Some of you may have to resort to narcotics to ease your pain. The downside of these types of drugs is addiction. And last but not least are steroids. It is commonly known that the chronic use of steroids results in adrenal exhaustion, weight gain and chronic body pains - to name just a few. I once overheard a medical doctor say, "In these cases I have to decide whether to let my patient suffer with the disease he has or give him a different disease caused by the drug I prescribe."
Wouldn't it be amazing if all you had to do to ease your headache and migraine pain was identify and prioritize the five known stressors that can affect the healing process? (From Chapter 7 [the book The Great Health Heist]: The 5 stressors are scars, food sensitivities, immune challenges, chemical challenges and metal challenges.) Relieve these stressors, provide whole-food nutrition and, voila, migraines and headaches are a thing of the past.
This is what two people from our clinic had to say after starting their health improvement programs.
"HM" wrote of her success," I was getting four to six migraines per week; sometimes they came with really bad neck pain. After my first treatment, I noticed right away a decline in headaches. That first week after the treatment, I didn't have any headaches."
Like so many of my patients, "HM" had been hesitant to give up or go without her over-the-counter pain relievers. But once she did, she realized the gift of true health had been waiting for her all along.
"I used to have a headache almost every day or every other day," wrote "RS" with relief. "During the last five years or so I started experiencing migraines also. I had no idea what was causing them and was starting to get concerned that something serious might be wrong with me. I started on my program and within a week the headaches were gone."
There are headaches that are severe and headaches that are chronic. Each has unique pain descriptors associated with it. "RH" suffered from both, but his chronic headaches became the reason for his first office visit.
"Before I came [to your clinic ], I was in pain sometimes three weeks in a row with chronic headaches," he explained. "Sometimes, I was even bedridden because of the pain. The only thing that would help would be to constantly take medications. After my appointments here I instantly felt better. It has been a little more than three weeks and I haven't had a headache since. The program [identifying] the problem foods really helped and I can't think what it would be like without [that knowledge]."
"JH" had been a long-time sufferer of headaches, both severe and chronic, and was truly one of those patients who had his life given back to him by Nutrition Response Testing. Explains "JH" in his letter: "I have had headaches since I was six years old. When I came here, I was taking six to eight Excedrin a day. There were many times that my pain would affect my entire lifestyle. My headaches now are almost gone. In the last two weeks, I have only taken six Excedrin. My energy level is much higher now and my attitude with my family is much better."
"SH" had suffered pain ever since a traffic accident. "I was rear-ended by a dumpster some 11 or 12 years ago. My neck is fused. Due to the pain and headaches, I have seen several doctors and specialists and have had a CAT scan and an MRI. Last fall I was going through several weeks of severe headaches and only three to four hours of sleep a night. After my third visit with Paul Rosen, the magic of healing without pills began. The treatments helped me beyond words. I am thankful to be able to be working again."
Like so many of my patients, "RT" had gotten so used to having daily headaches that the pain was almost routine. "I used to have a headache at least once a day, usually upon arising in the morning, " he explained in an email. "I would have almost instant diarrhea upon consumption of dairy products or leafy green vegetables. I have experienced radical improvement since starting the [Nutrition Response Testing] program. I haven't experienced a headache in three weeks now. I am now able to eat salads without deleterious effects. I have also lost 10 pounds in 90 days and have gone off Nexium and Allegra with no adverse effects."
Finally, "VP" wrote to tell me of her success with Nutrition Response Testing: "I was experiencing chronic pain between my shoulders and severe headaches (stress headaches) which were becoming increasingly frequent. My physician had prescribed Rizatriptan, which masked the pain but cured nothing. My massage therapist recommended I see an acupuncturist. My headaches are less severe and less frequent now. The pain between my shoulders is gone, and I've been able to do lots of yard work involving heavy lifting and pulling without re-injuring my shoulders."
If these stories sound too good to be true, ask yourself what's stopping you from seeking treatment like these patients. You don't have to suffer needlessly; relief is out there. I know trying something new can be daunting, but the point of these testimonials is to reach out a hand, to let you hear a familiar voice say that relief is available. You just have to find the "missing piece!"
