Overview

Are you one of the 80 million North American women suffering from the chronic pain of:
* Menstrual cramps
* Fibromyalgia
* Headaches
* Carpal tunnel syndrome
* Back or neck pain?

Starting today, you can put an end to your pain and reclaim your active life with Dr. Smith's 8-step holistic program for women.

Don't let chronic pain rob you of life-- preventing you from being productive at work, caring for your family, exercising, and participating in activities you enjoy. The Women's Guide to Ending Pain will show you how to take control today and end your pain with the latest complementary and conventional strategies.

Dr. Smith's 8-step program is different from other approaches because it targets the very reasons that cause women to hurt - - like chronic stress, hormonal fluctuations, sleep problems, depression, arthritis, sports injuries, and syndromes like fibromyalgia, which is increasingly prevalent and causes deep muscle pain and endless fatigue. Dr. Smith believes that no woman should accept pain as "normal" and gives you a pain expert's secrets on how to stop pain quickly without depending on sedating medications that have harsh side effects. In his 8-step program, you'll discover:
* How the effects of hormones on a woman's nervous system influence pain
* Unique signs, symptoms, and causes of your pain
* Ways to alleviate your pain, including natural dietary supplements, "pain-relieving" foods, yoga postures, mind/body exercises, massage and bodywork, new medications, and high-tech solutions
* Lifestyle habits and self-care measures you can start today that will provide tremendous relief
* Innovative methods to cope with the emotions associated with pain, including anxiety, anger, and depression
