Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known by its previous name Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a severe, chronic pain condition, often accompanied by inflammation, swelling, and irreversible changes in the musculoskeletal system. Neurological symptoms like neuropathy, numbness, and uncontrollable muscle contractions (dystonia) are often observed. Though it often affects a single limb at first, CRPS frequently spreads to other limbs and may affect the entire body. It is widely considered to be incurable. Only about 20% of patients achieve “successful outcomes,” defined as a reduction of symptoms, but not a complete elimination. Chances of improvement decrease with age. CRPS treatments are often invasive, result in serious side effects, and may have to be repeated for the rest of the patient’s life. Patients frequently end up on large doses of opioids to help them cope with pain. CRPS is sometimes nicknamed “suicide disease” due to the high risk of suicide ideation and actual suicide attempts by the patients.
Although mainstream medicine offers no cure, it does not have to be that way. It is possible to achieve full remission without invasive treatments or dangerous drugs. This website was created by former patients who achieved 100% success in their fight against CRPS. The secret lies in the power of the human mind. It may sound improbable, but we present evidence, based on our own experience and experience of many other chronic pain patients who succeeded. You can see us talking about our experience here:
We were invited as guests on a wonderful podcast by Eddy Lindenstein. You can find a recording here: Mind And Fitness podcast.
A very deep dive into the very important details of healing with our new friend and fellow chronic pain survivor Joseph Vargas can be found here:
We invite you to explore our site and learn more about the mind-body approach to CRPS. However unlikely it may appear, CRPS is the creation of an overstressed nervous system. That does not mean that it is not a real disease that is “all in your head”. In fact, being “all in your head” makes it no less serious or debilitating. But if you agree to embark on this journey, you will be rewarded, because you will learn that by adjusting your lifestyle and the way you approach life challenges, you can actually rid yourself of chronic pain. Why are we so confident? Because we traveled the same path and we succeeded, despite many difficulties we faced on the way.
What do you have to lose if you give it a try? Nothing will harm you, as we are not offering you any medications, or even food supplements. We are not selling you expensive procedures. It is all about you and your mind. Ready to try?
