Michael E. Whitman, D.C., F.A.C.A.C.N., of A Back & Neck Pain Center, located at 501 United States 40, Brazil, spent almost three years researching and writing his book, "You Don't Have to Live with Chronic Pain -- No Matter What Your Doctor or Aunt Betty Says."
Whitman's book features his clinical system that can be utilized to fit someone's health care needs. Whitman believes all sicknesses, diseases and chronic pains are caused from physical, chemical and emotional stressors.
"It talks about all the chronic pain conditions like Fibromalgia, chronic headaches, chronic neck and back pains," Whitman said. "We go into the underlying foundational stressors that cause these physical, chemical and emotional reactions."
Whitman gave some examples of stressors including common foods that are eaten daily, environmental chemicals, toxic metals, immune challenges like bacteria and parasites, among other things.
The book focuses on how the specific stressors can be identified and corrected using natural alternative ways of treatment without drugs or surgery.
"This book was written primarily for my past patients, current patients, future patients and anyone that would like to take the opportunity to learn how to control their own health destiny.
