Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
April 2016 Issue

Each month hundreds of thousands of consumers and healthcare professionals search the National Library of Medicine's Medline database seeking the latest information on their disease/condition. Conducting a thorough and effective Medline search is both a time consuming and daunting task. At Medifocus, we have developed an effective solution to this problem: each month our staff of expert researchers searches Medline for the latest advances in research and clinical medicine for over 70 diseases / conditions. We do this with one goal in mind: to empower you to effectively take control over your health.

What Our Customers Are Saying...

"Your MediFocus Guidebook on Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy helped me understand my diagnosis. It gave me a clear insight into what the disorder is about and a way to find out about the treatments for RSD. It also gave me a way to inform those around me. Anyone who has RSD or knows someone who is diagnosed with RSD needs this easy to read and understand Guidebook."
Casper, Wyoming

"I was recently diagnosed with RSD and I purchased the MediFocus Guidebook on this condition. The book was very well written and I immediately gave it to one of my doctors. With the help of the Guidebook, we were able to come up with a better treatment plan to help alleviate my pain. Sincere thanks."
Pennsauken, New Jersey

"I have been seen by some of the best RSD specialists in my area. Each of them told me there was nothing more that could be done for me. I became extremely frustrated and lost all hope of ever getting better. Many times I have searched the Internet for information about RSD and always came up with info I already had. I accidentally came across your website, ordered a book and was absolutely amazed at the amount of information now available to me. Although I have had you book only a short time, I have already discovered some new information. And with so many recent reports from doctors all over the world, perhaps I will come across some sort of treatment I haven't tried yet. The main thing is, I now have hope again thanks to your book. Thank you."
Fonthill, Ontario
