Reading Escape the Chain of Pain was a very personal experience for me. I suffer from three forms of chronic pain, including peripheral neuropathy, which is the main focus of the two doctors who authored the book, and which is on the rise, according to them. So, I was curious and hopeful to see what treatments they might suggest, and very encouraged by their research and theories.
Many people think of peripheral neuropathy as a disease that’s a component of diabetes. But the book explains that diabetes is only one of several causes of the extreme pain that is neuropathy. One cause is a deficiency in certain vitamins, which are detailed in the book. The fact that vitamins are discussed speaks to the fact that the authors are not “typical” doctors, in the sense that they think outside traditional medicine, which normally offers either surgery or heavy doses of medication (not always with success).
Several treatment options are given in the book, and patient testimonials tell the story of the relief they’ve experienced. As a side note, neuropathy isn’t the only disease that can benefit from the suggestions. Sufferers of other types of nerve pain would also benefit from following these doctors.
Readers whose lives are impacted or have been interrupted by excruciating nerve pain, or who have a loved one with the disease, would definitely benefit from at least trying the non-traditional approaches suggested here.
The book is an easy read and gives a glimmer of hope to sufferers (like me) who most often settle for a life of pain and despair.
