No system of healing or pain relief works in isolation. The healing of the body and the prevention of pain are dependent on a great number of factors, all of which should be addressed if pain relief is to be successful and long-lasting. To that end, the following books are strongly recommended for all patients. Each one addresses a different aspect of healing, wellness, exercise, diet, nutrition, or pain relief. They are readily obtainable, inexpensive, and if read and used faithfully will help to give you a lifetime of greater comfort and enjoyment in your body. If you have any questions about them, please ask.
