October 2017 Issue
 
 
 

Nearly every major medical breakthrough over the past 50 years can be attributed to new discoveries that were made possible through meticulous biomedical research. Many diseases and conditions that previously took a heavy toll on patients in terms of both morbidity and mortality are now either treatable or preventable thanks in large part to painstaking research that expanded the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moved the most promising basic research developments into tangible health benefits through human clinical trails. Ongoing research is also the key that will open the door to additional major medical advances and breakthroughs in the future.

Our staff at Medifocus is committed to keeping our subscribers to the Medifocus Digest Alert on Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy abreast of the latest new research developments that have recently been published in the medical literature for this condition. In this issue of the Digest Alert, you will find a focused list of hand-picked journal article references that represent the latest advances in basic and clinical research for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. These articles represent the current state-of-the-art of the research that will hopefully lead to additional major advances and breakthroughs in the clinical management of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. You can access the summaries of each article referenced below by simply clicking on the article Title.

We will continue to update you with the latest scientific and clinical developments through the Medifocus Digest Alert on Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy every 3 months. Thank you for your ongoing subscription to this publication.

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."

"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."
S.G.
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."
