#Spoonie, Back Pain, chronic illness bloggers, CHRONIC PAIN, DRUGS



Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network and I was in no way influenced by the company.

As a chronic pain sufferer myself and also someone who has tried what I call ‘every trick in the book’, I was interested to read ” Life Beyond Chronic Pain: The Step-By-Step Guide to Healing Chronic Illness Naturally” by Jaime Heidel and her view on how to heal yourself holistically.

This short book is an easy read and could be finished in a day but even though it is short Jaime has crammed in as much knowledge she has on techniques she has tried to help people with chronic illness. It is a very interesting read which she has backed up with tons of research on the subject.

Jaime explains in detail to you that by using her ‘EDRM Method’ (Eliminate, detoxify, rebuild and maintain) of healing, you will learn four practical ways to free yourself from chronic illness. I was not surprised to read her list of ten hidden toxins in the environment which could cause a flare up including simple things like air fresheners, body lotions and hair products.

She explains how you can heal chronic illness if you do it in the right way, using natural and holistic ways. She also adds into her book a couple of detoxing smoothie recipes, along with many other ways to assist you on your journey to becoming well including cooking methods that should be avoided and what to use in place of them.

Jaime also comments on how writing about one’s life is a very beneficial way to detoxify your mind. I could not agree with Jaime more on that subject as I spend most of my day writing on my numerous blogs and find it takes me away from my pain, even on my worst of days.

All in all I found this book very informative and something I could refer back to should the need arise. It would make a great stocking filler (although on Kindle format) for any chronic illness sufferer.

You can Jaime’s book on Amazon HERE and find Jaime over on her blog HERE.


      1. To be perfectly honest with you Gill, I think acute pain is something that no one can really give you advice on as each individual can cope with less or more discomfort/pain and their first port of call always seems to be Ibrufen and Paracetamol. Hope your not suffering to much. I had a massive flare up but its settled down a bit now. Take care
