I thought about you those last days . As far as I understood you have been suffering from heavy pain those long years .
Why dont you try this for yourself, of course it is not something a doctor will order , myself I took this opportunity when the first trial was astonishing , a burning sensation gone in 5mn !!!!
As I said I have no personal interest beside helping you like I have been helped by a friend of mine.
If you want to give it a try and missing something in my explaination , I will be more than happy to give yoy some additional info
You said :
.Anyway, as we all know, there is no one answer for all of us and that we tend to pay homage to the approaches that have helped us and share that with others.

I wish you a very good new year with your loves one.
