Self Healing can Control Your Healthcare Costs, and I can prove it! The middle of last summer, my friend, Donna Buessing, introduced me to a great book called Pain Free by Peter Egoscue. Donna heard of the book from someone at her gym and told me about it when I told her I had foot pain for more than a year and I was looking for some relief. Donna had a copy of the book and she let me borrow it. I didn’t want to keep it long since she was working on her own issue, so I took the book home, studied it and followed the exercises that night.
