Pain Relief

Natural pain relief without drugs. Effective remedies from M.D.s and other medical professionals. Treatments for pain from alternative medicine.

This page is mostly about alternative treatments. I have nothing against traditional medicine. Antibiotics and other necessary drugs have saved millions of lives, but in many cases, drugs may not be necessary because there are gentler, more effective cures with few or no side effects.

Surgeons can do amazing things. My husband, Karl, would not be alive today without the skilled hands and expertise of Dr. Denton Cooley, who, in 1986, patched a hole in his aorta and installed a new heart valve. But surgery may not always be the best choice.

Never give up on pain relief

I have had lots of different kinds of pain. Because I had access to cutting edge information, and because I was persistent and wouldn't give up, I managed to get rid of my pain. I had the motto, "I’ll try anything," and I did, seeing one doctor after another, using one thing after another, sometimes trying as many as a dozen approaches or products until I found one that worked. Believe me, it’s worth being persistent and optimistic to get rid of your pain. Never give up! I found a way to fix it, and you can, too. 

Never believe someone when they say, "Learn to live with it," as one famous sports medicine specialist said to me about my heel pain. (I finally fixed that one with a supplement.) Never give up. Too many miracles have happened. Never, never, never give up.


"Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."  Matthew 11:28.

A number of studies have linked prayer to healing, and although the results have been inconclusive, what could it hurt to talk to the omnipotent creator of the universe? A prayer for healing might go something like this:

"Dear Lord, please hear me now as I pray for your help with (name your problem). I pray you’ll cleanse my body and heal me completely. In Jesus’ name I pray; Amen."
