I'm squinting here trying to read between the lines of your post....and I'm guessing you are hesitant that something like this will work. Me too. I searched around the internet and found lots of people willing to take our money and promise a cure or something close to it. Most of what's out there are bloggers throwing claims at each other. But none of these folks are coming up with good scientific research. I'm talking about
the kind that is published, double-blind trials with solid, unbiased work behind them.
Most all of the research I've seen is university based at the teaching medical schools. One good one for pain and fibromyalgia is the Stanford Pain Clinic and also University of Michigan. Jeannie has some great information on that one.
I would love to tell you that it would be money well spent, but if it were that great then why aren't all of our doctors doing the same thing. My doctor sure doesn't need more patients and it truly breaks his heart to see people like me in there with fibro and all that goes with it. He has nothing to gain by not going for a cure. But it's not out there...not yet.
The latest research shows that fibro is likely a central nervous system disorder. Here's a link to the Stanford University Pain research center for some interesting reading. snapl.stanford.edu/research/
I hope this answers your question. I'm no researcher nor doctor but I try to be a smart and savvy consumer. If if sounds too good to be true...you guessed it!
