Product Description

What bathroom cabinet or gym bag does not contain at least one pain medication? Yet these cause bone deterioration that will one day require joint replacement. That is, if they don't cause colitis, kidney or liver damage, cataracts, hemorrhaging, heart failure, leaky gut with auto-immune disease, nutrient deficiencies, allergies or death before that. All pain has a cause, and once you know the cause you have the cure. We don't all just look different; we have different causes for our arthritis, sciatica, degenerating back discs, migraines, fibromyalgia, prostatitis, cystitis, and even end-stage cancer pain. Old injuries, old age, auto-immune disease, chronic degeneration and even cancer are not the reasons for pain. They are excuses for not finding the true cause and getting rid of it. For chronic pain victims the solution has been as simple as eliminating a food, correcting a nutrient deficiency, healing the gut, or killing hidden infection. For others it has required getting rid of a lifetime's accumulation of everyday toxic chemicals. U.S. EPA studies of chemicals stored in the fat of humans showed that 100% of people had dioxins, PCBs, dichlorobenzene, and xylene while another study of the exhaled breath showed benzene in 89% and perchloroethylene in 93%. We continually tank up on common heavy metals like cadmium, mercury, and arsenic that trigger osteoporosis, back pain, hip pain, arthritis, painful burning skin or cancer. Let's face it we are all a toxic cesspool from the lifetime accumulation of chemicals in our air, food, and water. These chemicals can produce every type of pain that medicine sees merely as a lifetime deficiency of some drug or tells us there is no known cure for. If toxicity is not an underlying reality then why does a gallon of water cost more than a gallon of gasoline?

Format: Paperback
If you have ever experienced chronic pain, this book could be a literal life-saver for you!
As a long-time sufferer of chronic pain, I was surprised this year when I found that following the South Beach diet improved my pain. I also had other symptoms that improved at the same time. I discussed the results with my neurologists, and they congratulated me on my progress but had no idea why I had improved.
When I opened Pain Free in 6 Weeks, the book had instant credibility. Dr. Rogers, who is board certified in environmental medicine, begins by warning readers away from prescription pain relievers because they kill people. Just weeks ago, some of these products began being pulled from the market.
My smile widened when her next point was that most pain is associated with food allergies and other sensitivities to common materials. Eliminate the foods and sources of the sensitivities in question, and Dr. Rogers has found that the pain quickly leaves as well.
My smile became a full one when Dr. Rogers described how she overcame her own pain . . . which was much greater than mine had ever been.
That smile became a positively silly grin when I went on to read the many scientific studies that Dr. Rogers cites in support of her views.
Now, I was convinced that I was reading the real deal.
She feels that 80 percent of the people who read this book will find their solutions in doing 20 percent of what's described. She encourages you to try things in a certain order, and see what happens. She provides clear directions about how to do this in chapter 8 which begins on page 278.
1. Eliminate foods and substances in the nightshade family for 3 months.

I have painful arthritis in my knees and have tried everything under the sun to help with the pain and stiffness. I devoured this book - the author is pretty evangelical and promises results - and I did everything, and I do mean everything, she prescribed to no avail. One day I will realise that these messiahs who promise miracles are just out to make money from the sick and gullible.

Everyone should read this book. There are some excellent suggestions. Some may seem a little extreme but I am already a great supporter of taking responsibility for your own health.

Eliminate Pain through Better Nutrition and Detoxification 26 Jan. 2005
By Donald Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have ever experienced chronic pain, this book could be a literal life-saver for you!

As a long-time sufferer of chronic pain, I was surprised this year when I found that following the South Beach diet improved my pain. I also had other symptoms that improved at the same time. I discussed the results with my neurologists, and they congratulated me on my progress but had no idea why I had improved.

My smile widened when her next point was that most pain is associated with food allergies and other sensitivities to common materials. Eliminate the foods and sources of the sensitivities in question, and Dr. Rogers has found that the pain quickly leaves as well.

My smile became a full one when Dr. Rogers described how she overcame her own pain . . . which was much greater than mine had ever been.

That smile became a positively silly grin when I went on to read the many scientific studies that Dr. Rogers cites in support of her views.

Now, I was convinced that I was reading the real deal.

She feels that 80 percent of the people who read this book will find their solutions in doing 20 percent of what's described. She encourages you to try things in a certain order, and see what happens. She provides clear directions about how to do this in chapter 8 which begins on page 278.

1. Eliminate foods and substances in the nightshade family for 3 months. These foods are described in detail in the book but they include tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, potato-based fillers, soy products that use the Monsanto petunia gene add-on, and tobacco. Here is where I got my first clue about why South Beach might be working for me on pain -- I had greatly reduced my consumption of these items, especially potatoes because they are high glycemic.

2. Rebuild your system with CM, cetyl myristoleate, (she describes the better sources of it which many people lack in their diets) between meals with a digestant. I had been working on improving my consumption of fatty acids, so this gave me another clue about why I had improved.

She feels that the vast majority of chronic pain sufferers will be pain free within four months after these two steps.

3. Some people will also need help with nutrient protection, elimination of muscle spasms and bone loss, and she has advice on supplements to help you with those problems. This will be of most value to those with arthritis or rheumatism.

4. Some people will need a major uptake in cell health, and she has a long list of things to use for that purpose.

5. Finally, she gives you many additional ways to detoxify your body and strengthen your immune system, especially by eliminating a leaky gut (which many pain sufferers have).

Once you are through the pain elimination phase, she has a simpler program for maintenance.

If those steps don't do it for you, she has other options for detoxification, rebuilding and maintenance.

She also has directed advice for those with the pain of terminal cancer.

In the text, she also offers the information your doctor will need to understand what you are doing. She can also be contacted for telephone consultations to help you think through how to treat your pain.

May you be truly pain free all the days of your life!

Lasting Relief from Better Health 23 July 2002
By Lora N. Mermin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sherry A. Rogers, M.D., ABEM, ABFP, FACN, FACAAI, , has done it again. She gives us a wealth of research findings which support her thesis: "Your body was designed to heal and be pain free. . . only when there is a persistent trigger (that the body is reacting to and cannot conquer) does it continue to produce inflammation and pain . . . All pain has a cause, and once you know the cause you have the cure. . . [For some] the solution has been as simple as eliminating a food, correcting a nutrient deficiency, healing the gut, or killing hidden infections. For others it has required getting rid of a lifetime's accumulation of everyday toxic chemicals." She does not spare commercial pain-killers as one of the sources of toxicity.
An example of foods to omit: the "nightshade nemesis": Rogers cites studies indicating that 74-95% percent of people with arthritis pain have an allergic reaction to plants of the nightshade family. Eliminating those foods would bring lasting pain relief in a few months. She explores the ramifications of completely staying away from potato, tomato, green pepper, eggplant --and even soy products made from bio-engineered seeds with petunia genes in them.
Perhaps you have not heard before about a quick-acting arthritis remedy which requires no prescription, and has no side effects? That would be CM, cetyl myristoleate. Dr. Rogers relates that it works for only a percentage (about 55%) of those who try it, and guides you through the maze of manufacturers and their varying products. She never omits details of how to find, use, and evaluate her suggested remedies.
For osteoporosis/cartilage-loss treatment, she gives a discussion of the vitamins, minerals and bovine cartilage products we may need, plus a recipe for old-fashioned bone soup.
The coffee enema, which was part of standard medical procedures during most of the 19th century, gets a new lease on life through modern medical understanding and Dr. Rogers' account of her own experience with it.
And something new: the FIR sauna, which uses a frequency consonant with human DNA, to give us beneficial sweating without harmful overheating. We get the full treatment: We learn how to ease into sauna treatments, and how to replace the beneficial minerals lost in every sweating experience. Sauna users are not likely to overlook this latter point after being reminded of joggers who have died of unexpected heart attacks, most likely because they had sweated out the magnesium needed for proper heart rhythm.
There is something new here about braces for sports injuries, and a pain-reliever for terminal cancer pain which is also a healing agent: cesium chloride.
The whole in this case is more than the sum of its parts. "Pain-Free" gives you the keys to creating self-help programs; and the scientific references to persuade your doctor to expand to a more holistic horizon.

Watch Out for The Attack of the Killer Tomato 11 Mar. 2009
By Diane Tegarden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Watch Out for These Veggies-The Attack of the Killer Tomato

A "nightshade nemesis" is the condition that Dr. Sherry Rogers describes when one has a high sensitivity to eating the plants in the nightshade family.

Describing the various symptoms, including joint pain and chronic inflammation, and offering a simple solution, you would think that it would be easy to exclude these particular plants from your diet. But before you go pointing a finger, these toxic veggies include the ever popular potato, tomato, all colors of peppers, eggplant, and spices like curry, paprika and cayenne.

Imagine telling a vegetarian, who eats primarily organic fruits and vegetables, and only additive and hormone free protein sources, that they must now cut these tasty, vitamin charged vegetables out of their diets.

It sounds ridiculous, but in fact the Solonaceae family of plant's common name is the "deadly nightshade", due to the fact that pastured animals were be found to be crippled and sometimes dead after eating these particular plants, according to Dr. Rogers book.

The good news is, there are reasonable replacements for these foods; for example, you can use sweet potatoes or yams in place of potatoes, you can eat fresh beets and place of tomatoes, you may use a variety of spices including fenugreek, cumin, ginger, cloves, garlic, coriander, and allspice.

Again you have to approach prepackaged foods with an eye toward reading labels, winnowing out those with the ingredients in the nightshade family, including such innocuous ingredients as potato starch, commonly used in bread and to thicken food.

PAIN FREE IN SIX WEEKS TO THE DAY! 27 Feb. 2009
By R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Last March I began having pain in my hips and down my right leg. By the middle of the month I could hardly get in and out of the car. By the middle of April my family was leaving for Mexico and I could not go on the trip. I couldn't even sleep at night the pain was so great. During the week they were gone, I had an xray and MRI. I had a herniated disk between L5 and S1. It was putting pressure on the right sciatic nerve. My leg was numb from the knee down. The pain killers they gave me didn't touch the pain. After the MRI they gave me the option of a steroid injection that may or may not work. The next step was surgery. I asked what the goal was for the steroid shot. They said to take the inflamation out of the area. I was determined to try to do it on my own naturally(with a little help!). I quit taking the pain killers, got out my Pain Free in Six Weeks book. (Thought I should practice what I preach.) I did everything Dr.Rogers suggested. The pain slowly started to lessen. Exactly six weeks to the day (amazing!) the pain quit in my leg. Dr. Rogers also suggested that along with taking care of your physical body, that you take care of your emotional and spiritual bodies. That was absolutely the key for me. I feel like I have cleaned house on all levels. I can't thank her enough for giving me my life back. I am living proof that your body can heal itself if you take away all the junk and give it a chance!

Pain Free in Six Weeks 22 Dec. 2008
By Brenda Maxwell Shearman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After twenty years of writhing,exploding leg pain: mind dimming general pain, and hopelessness, I can thank God and the author for writing this book. I half-heartedly did the garlic cleanse, but the miracle is staying off nightshades. I have been pain free for three years with the exception of times I get paprika, or potato starch in something I think I have carefully ordered. My rheumatologist still shakes his head and asks if I need a precription. I am pain free and drug free. My fibromyalgia has disappeared. If you hurt like I did, you can't buy this book fast enough.
