Hello Everybody. Welcome to howtofeelgood.net. A site dedicated to helping people get out of chronic pain and feel good by using exercise, diet, new technology, and science.
My name is Jeff Neill, owner and operator of howtofeelgood.net. I’m also a husband, father, entrepreneur, outdoor enthusiast, Certified Rolfer, Certified Personal Trainer, and Registered MRI and CT Technologist. For the last ten years I’ve also suffered from chronic shoulder, neck, and knee pain that has really taken me away from the activities I love and the life I had envisioned for myself. So, initially I used doctors, medicines, and surgeries to take care of my issues. When that approach didn’t work and the pain didn’t go away, I knew I had to do take a different approach. I had to take control of my health and learn as much as I could about healing myself.
Finding success with the “healing yourself method” is often difficult to accomplish. Everyone is different. What works for this person might not work for that person. That’s the hard part. What I’ve learned is that YOU have to experiment and find what works for you. For example: Let’s take the Ketogenic Diet for instance. It worked great for me. I could handle the high fats and the lack of variety in the diet. I loved how it made me feel and look. On the other hand, a buddy of mine tried it and it sent his body into a tailspin. He felt terrible, his labs were all over the place and didn’t like the food choices. Obviously this was an approach that wasn’t going to work. The point is; is that to have control over your health; YOU have to be part of the experiment, not letting other people make those decisions for you.
I’m here to help.
WHY THIS WEBSITE EXISTS
I’m here to help people help themselves get out of chronic pain and maximize their individual human experience. I know what it’s like to walk around feeling fragile and scared, thinking that I can’t do something because I might injure myself. I know what it’s like to just feel bad and not know why, despite doing everything that is “working” for everyone else. I know what it’s like to be super frustrated by our medical system: appointment after appointment, test after test, 15 minute exams where your questions are never answered, endless therapy recommendations. And I most certainly know what it’s like to waste money on things that don’t work. That’s not going to happen here. We are going to focus on giving you the tools and information that will help YOU find what will work for you.
