Chronic Pain eBook
Many millions live with persistent chronic pain. Painkillers can work to an extent, but often their potency wears off with repeated dose, and, more worryingly, the cause of the pain is still there.
This new guide explores some painkilling alternatives before investigating some of the common causes of chronic pain, including migraine, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Other conditions that are extensively explored include lumbago, period pains, endometriosis, phantom-limb pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, ulcerative colitis and osteoarthritis.
Finally, a range of alternative pain-killing methods is investigated, together with any supportive science that suggests they could be effective. Going under the microscope include serrapeptase, healing magnets, cetylated fatty acids, SCENAR technology, and exercises that can help improve chronic back pain.
