Much of today’s generation see pain relief coming out of a convenient bottle, or at least that’s what TV commercials are telling them, with their multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical advertising budget. Inevitably, they come to the conclusion that that’s all there is. Now, however, you can present a non-drug, non-surgery solution to eliminate pain.
