Unfortunately, many effective, less expensive, safe pain treatments receive almost no advertising, since they are not very profitable for manufacturers or practitioners. FDA approval for a new treatment or procedure usually requires clinical trials costing at least $[...]. Naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, hormones and herbs are not patentable, unless the natural molecule is altered or a new delivery system is developed. Insurers seldom pay for treatments and procedures, which are not FDA approved. Universities and medical schools rely heavily on financial support from pharmaceutical manufacturers. Most effective inexpensive remedies will never receive the expensive newspaper, magazine, radio and television publicity, which more expensive patented prescription medications receive.
Many chronic pain patients have had numerous endoscopies and scans, costing thousands of dollars, which did not provide as much useful diagnostic or treatment information as the reader can obtain from reading this book.
Teitelbaum's protocols and concepts have been especially effective with migraine sufferers, many of whom have reduced their migraine pain, 96 to 98 percent, without using any painkillers. Compounding pharmacists, have been able to formulate prescription pain creams which relieve 90 to 100 percent of fibromyalgia pain, with virtually no side effects and no addiction risk.
Numerous restless leg syndromes, chronic fatigue syndromes and irritible bowel syndromes,have been eliminated using information contained in this book.
The herbal gastritis and reflux protocols have worked for almost everyone I know, who has tried them.
The attention he gives to effective and inexpensive, over the counter and generic medication is especially refreshing, when pharmaceutical manufacturers and physicians seem focused on the most expensive medications and procedures. The book integrates pharmaceutical,over the counter,nutritional, hormonal and herbal treatments.
I have had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Teitelbaum, in person, at one of the lectures, he gives free of charge. I have had the additional pleasure of interviewing him twice on voiceamerica.com internet radio show. His humility continues to amaze me.
He recommended that patients continue his herbal pain formula, cautioning that six weeks might be required to experience improvement, when it took away someone's herniated lumbar disc pain, in a couple hours and has kept it away.
His herbal pain formula also worked safely for a fibromyalgia patient, who had gastritis.
He donates all royalties from his nutritional formulas to charity. He answers very specific, complex health questions for individuals, free of charge, on his endfatigue.com website.
He has a gift for explaining and teaching medical, biochemical and statistical concepts, in a manner which is understandable, by non scientists.
Some very funny cartoons also help ease your pain! Thank God for this book and Dr. Teitelbaum!
