I'm your age. I too have had much back problems but now I don't, except for the previous surgery I had done on my lower back in 1980. I wish I knew then what I'm about to tell you now. I have a saying, "most problems are not from the obvious". Its easy to go around and say " my back hurts here-fix it there-problem solved but it don't work that way. For example, had you have known that the heavy wallet you kept for the past 30 years in your right rear pocket couple with driving an automobile with the seat all the way back, plus adding in an extra 20 pounds around the waste is the real problem not the pain in your back. The wallet causing you to sit off center and the driving with your legs straight out forces you to pull on your lower back instead of pulling the seat closer using more of your knees than back might show you some relief.

In 2001 I was looking at neck surgery with spinal degenerative disease. Also a Chiroprator had slightly ruptured a disk in the middle of my back and I had a developed a bone spur at the surgery area of my lower back. I was a mess. Now I need no surgery. Watch the show Scrubs and see how surgeons really are. It is how they are. The last thing you want is surgery. Then 911 occurred. After 911 I heard of a treatment many of the firefighters under went because of all the toxic materials they not only breathed but was also obsorbed into their skin. I looked it up on the internet and listen to their testimonials and began to do my own study of the process they under went. It was a 3-6 weeks dry sauna, 5 hours per day vitamin enriched niacin and minerial enchiched process known as the Purification Rundown.

This process is designed to rid the body of any and all past drug, x-ray, radiation, food preservative, etc. toxins that are stored in our bodies and in particular in our body fats that get released into us under pain and stress. I figured I had nothing to lose and it only cost $1500.00 so why not. It took me 36 days and I could not believe what came out of my body. My towels stunk to high heaven. The radiation from all my dental work came out of my head, woman in the sauna had old beat red sunburns re-surface that they had gotten when they were teenagers. My vision improved, colors were sharper and brighter, my skin tightened up and of better tone but most importantly my pain was gone. I would check it out, it works. Good Luck.
