I’ve had several practitioners in the past few months who’ve told me they only wanted the standard SET-DB™ package, not the SET-DB™ Fibromyalgia. When I asked one why, he replied, “I don’t like treating fibromyalgia patients.” When pressed he said they’re “too grumpy.” I assume the other practitioners reasons for not wanting the fibromyalgia program would be along the same lines.
At first this attitude surprised me because I had such good experiences treating fibromyalgia while in active practice. But the more I thought about it, the clearer it became…
…I enjoyed treating fibromyalgia patients because I had something that helped the vast majority of them get their life back. The ones who started out “grumpy” left my treatment program smiling. And it always started after about six treatments.
If you don’t have something to offer that really helps them, the case will end in failure, which is frustrating. Frustrating for the practitioner and even more so for the patient. I wouldn’t like that, either.
When I think of my grumpy fibromyalgia patients (they didn’t all start like that—maybe only 25%), one face is always the first to pop up in my mind: Jackie (real first name, but I’ll withhold her last name). She used to scare my wife when she started her treatment program.
Incidentally, her husband drove her to our office for about the first half of her treatment program. (They lived about 40 miles away.) After that, she was able to drive herself.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Here’s her testimonial:
BEFORE Dr. Boothe’s treatment: “I was unable to do hardly anything. I had to give up driving my car. I had to depend on my husband for everything. I spent most of my time at home and I needed a housekeeper to do my work. I had severe stomach problems, couldn’t sleep, was very tired all the time, and was very depressed. I had to have epidural injections in my spine and took pain medication that didn’t help. I couldn’t eat, I spent a lot of time in bed—days at a time.”
(Let’s cut these poor people some slack—who wouldn’t be grumpy feeling like that?)
AFTER Dr. Boothe’s treatment: “I’m now doing my housework and I’m able to drive! I have good sleep at night. I’m able to eat and I have no stomach problems anymore. I need no more prescription medication for pain and no more epidural injections in my spine. This is the healthiest I’ve felt in years! I feel happy and am enjoying all the things I had to give up. It was all worth the 40 treatments. I have my life back again!”
Jackie Xxxxxx, Stockton
I don’t have access to her Symptom Intensity Graph so I can’t show it to you or tell you how she rated herself in the top 13 symptoms of fibromyalgia at the start and end of her program. But, do you really need those numbers? Isn’t quality of life more important?
I bet you’re wondering why being able to do her own housework was important enough to her to mention in her testimonial. If so, you’re obviously not part of the post-war generation. You and I look forward to not doing our own housework, but her generation took pride in taking care of themselves and their family, which meant doing their own work.
If you could have seen Jackie toward the end of her program—driving herself around, free of heavy pain killers and painful injections, eating what she wanted instead of what she could, taking pride in being able to take care of her house again—you’d understand why we looked forward to each and every new fibromyalgia patient we were blessed to help.

SET-DB™ is the preeminent treatment for eliminating sensitivities. With BioSurveys that run on a ZYTO Elite or Select system, it is by far the easiest (for both practitioner and patient) and most effect system available.
Instead of having to fly around the country at a cost of many thousands, SET-DB™ can be learned and implemented in as little as a few days.
Plans for 2018
1. Remote treatments: many practitioners have contacted me about doing SET-DB™ remotely. I didn't think it possible, but I believe I may have been wrong. After the wrinkles are ironed out, I'll be announcing it here on the blog.
2. Referrals: I get contacted by people wanting to know who does SET-DB™ near them. It's a trickle now but as SET-DB™ expands, the need for a referral system will expand with it.
3. Remote training: I'm thinking about adding an option for practitioners to fly me in to spend a day in their practice working with them or staff. There will also be opportunities to train remotely via your internet connect.
4. Product improvement: I'm constantly improving the product. I've recently completed a SET-DB™ Fibromyalgia Staff Manual and made improvement to the Fibromyalgia Practitioner Manual to make it even easier to implement the program.
Best wishes to you and your families, staff, and patients or client for the New Year!
Dr. Teryl Boothe and selected guests.
