Here is a case of mine from 2005. I'll let you read her written account first, then make some comments and observations:
I did a web search on "neruofibromyalgia" and found next to nothing. I recall that she explained it was "fibromyalgia that just affects the head." As she wrote, her husband brought her in after seeing one of my ads and reading the report. Then, after the evaluation, he dug a credit card from his wallet and paid for her to go through the treatment program. One correction, though, we never ran an ad for a "study on fibromyalgia." We only ran ads that offered a free report.
Aside from the fact that this woman got her life back, which is wonderful in and of itself, I wanted to point out something she said about the medication she said was given to "control the nerves in my face," that it was responsible for her nightmares. As my degree is Doctor of Chiropractic, I did not take her off her medication nor did I advise her in any way about it. But...
…I DID test her for it, found that her body showed a sensitivity to it, and then treated her for the sensitivity. After the treatment, her nightmares immediately disappeared.
I used to have all my fibromyalgia patients bring in their medications and supplements so I could check them for sensitivities to what they were taking. This is covered somewhat in the SET-DB™ Practitioner Manual. When testing for sensitivities to medication, I would explain to them that common side effects may be caused by a sensitivity rather than by an unpleasant chemical reaction. It was difficult to tell if the treatments helped my patients feel better because the fibromyalgia treatment program is "front loaded," meaning I did treatments at the beginning of the program I felt might help them feel better, faster. I was pleased to read what this patient wrote this after her treatment program.
I removed the recommendation to check for sensitivities to medications from my fibromyalgia manual when ZYTO disabled the tower for U.S. users because of the extra time it takes to check things patients bring in. Before, I could save them in my library so if someone else brought the same medication in, I didn't have to take the time to scan it in again.
But, it really doesn't take that much time to scan what they bring in and test them for it. And the benefits, as you've read today, can be significant for your patients.
