Putting Out The Fire

Reflex sympathetic pain syndrome/chronic regional pain syndrome (RSD/CRPS) affects millions of people worldwide. It is a difficult illness to bear. Many sufferers believe there is no hope of relief from the constant pain. Dr. Katinka van der Merwe, DC, QNP, wrote Putting Out the Fire to assure you that this is not the case. She has dedicated her life and career to providing pain relief for RSD/CRPS sufferers. Van der Merwe outlines treatment options that can give you a new lease on life.

As a person who suffers from RSD/CRPS, you have probably found that much in your life is no longer under your control. You have probably been to a lot of doctors over time, many of whom may not have understood your condition. In addition, mind numbing daily pain may have robbed you of many of the pleasurable things you once enjoyed.  You may sometimes feel as if you are the only person in the world suffering from this horrible condition, that very few doctors truly understand.

Overall, it is my hope for you to gain a sense of control over this condition. I want you to walk away from this book empowered. In order to do this, we will lead you through what we believe causes RSD/CRPS, its history and its inner workings. In addition, we will provide you with practical steps that will allow you to beat this beast down.  We hope to provide you with brand-new, practical information.

“A blessing and great help has been an amazing support group of others with RSD being treated by Dr. Katinka. For the first time, David met and talked with others who have the same pain and other symptoms associated with RSD. It brought great comfort to all of them to share their stories and weird symptoms with each other. We found a RSD “family” who socialized and supported and cheered David on for every step of progress. We will always be there for each other to pray for, uplift, celebrate and encourage each other.” – David Smith’s Story
