To love one who loves you,
to admire one who admires you, in a word, to be the idol of one's idol, is exceeding the limits of human joy: it is stealing fire from heaven.

A hundred expressions of  love and praise will not make up for one criticism.

A father spoke to his young son and said, "I want you to know how much I love you." The boy replied, "Daddy I don't want you to love me, I just want you to play ball with me."   

Acts of love are more important than expressions of love! -- Darrell Stoddard

Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours For one lone soul another lonely soul, Each choosing each through all the weary hours, And meeting strangely at one sudden goal, Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers, Into one beautiful and perfect whole; And life's long night is ended, and the way Lies open onward to eternal day --Author: Edwin Arnold

One sweet, sad secret holds my heart in thrall;
A mighty love within my breast has grown, Unseen, unspoken, and of no one known; And of my sweet, who gave it, least of all.

Love and relationships are truly one of the most paradoxical aspects of being human. For it is in love that we find the greatest of strengths and the deepest of sorrows. Love can seem to be so fleeting and unachievable yet it remains well within our reach if we only learn how to embrace it's power. To experience true love, we must be willing to open ourselves up and sacrifice part of our heart and part of our soul. We must be willing to give of ourselves freely, and we must be willing to suffer. It is only when we expose our inner selves to the white hot flame of rejection, that love can burn so brightly as to join to souls, melding the two into one, creating a bond that joins forever. It is from this bond that we draw strength eternal and power ever lasting. It is in this thing that we call love that we find the means to achieve greatness, both in ourselves and in our lives.

Many people when they fall in love look for a little haven of refuge from the world, where they can be sure of being admired when they are not admirable, and praised when they are not praiseworthy.
Author: Bertrand Russell

The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much.-- Philip James Bailey

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee to the level of everyday's Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.
   --Elizabeth Barrett Browning

 To love and be loved is  the greatest happiness of existence..
      --Author: Sydney Smith

We are, each of us angels with only one wing; and we can only fly by embracing one another.
--Luciano de Crescenzo.

'Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble  remembering how to fly.'  

We can do no great things; only small things with great love. -- Mother Teresa.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
              --- Mother Teresa

There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread
           -- Mother Teresa

If we all discovered that we only had five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say, every telephone booth would be occupied by people calling other people to tell them that they loved them.

At times our light goes out - and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
           -- Albert Schweitzer

Grief is the price we pay for love - Queen Elizabeth II

Are you starved
for love and affection?

     Babies in orphanages die if they are not touched, held,  cuddled, and loved. 
     Children, teenagers, and middle aged people die a little if they are not touched, hugged, and loved.   
     A scientific study based on marriage, divorce, and death statistics in the U.S. presents evidence that older women will die more than 3 years sooner, and older men will die 13 years sooner, than they would otherwise if they are not touched, hugged, kissed and loved.

The universe is not the product of darkness and unreason; it comes from intelligence, freedom, and from the beauty that is identical with love"

Benedict XVI

There is a bliss beyond all that the minstrel has told, When two, that are link'd in one heavenly tie, With heart never changing, and brow never cold, Love on thro' all ills, and love on till they die. One hour of a passion so sacred is worth Whole ages of heartless and wandering bliss; and oh! if there be an Elysium on earth, It is this --it is this!  -- Thomas Moore

“When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you'd like them to be.”  -  Leo Tolstoy

They do not love

That do not show their love          --William Shakespeare

“Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly.”
- Leo Tolstoy

“Yes, love, ...but not the love that loves for something, to gain something, or because of something, but that love that I felt for the first time, when dying, I saw my enemy and yet loved him. I knew that feeling of love which is the essence of the soul, for which no object is needed. And I know that blissful feeling now too. To love one's neighbours; to love one's enemies. To love every thing - to Love God in all His manifestations. Some one dear to one can be loved with human love; but an enemy can only be loved with divine love.
- Leo Tolstoy

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" -Maya Angelou

"The greatest suffering comes to those who will not love" ....Love so much it hurts; an exquisite pain"

"Grief can take care of itself but to get the full value of a joy you must have someone to divide it with"
-Mark Twain

"The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love" - Hubert Humphrey

And so, as one smart bear once said.....'If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.' - Winnie the Pooh. 

Love of Life,
God, and His Creation

"The Roses of Life"
 Author unknown

I've dreamed many dreams that never came true,
I've seen them vanish at dawn. But I've realized enough of my dreams, thank God,
To make me want to dream on.

I've prayed many prayers, when no answers came,
Though I waited so patient and long,
But answers came to enough of my prayers
To make me keep praying on.

I've trusted many a friend who failed
And left me to weep alone,
But I've found enough of my friends to be true
To make me keep trusting on.

I've sown many seeds that fell by the way
For the birds to feed upon,
But I've held enough golden sheaves in my hands
To make me keep sowing on.

I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain
And gone many days without song,
But I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life
To make me want to live on.

Because of
all the things
I have seen,
I believe in things
I cannot see

 -- darreell stoddard

Oh God
Let This Be Heaven
     by Harrison R. Merrill

Oh God let this be heaven.
I do not ask for golden streets
or long for jasper walls
Nor do I sigh for pearly shores where twilight never falls.

Just leave my spirit here somewhere
in this rough Western land.
I love this old world of thine.
Dear God you understand. 

Oh God let this be heaven.
I do not ask white stainless robes.
I'll keep these marked by toil.
Instead of straight and narrow walks,
I love paths soft with soil.

I have been healed by crystal streams
Like these from snow capped peaks
Where dawn burns incense to the sky
And paints the sky with streaks.

Dear God let this be heaven.
I do not ask for angel wings.
Just leave that old peak there
and let me climb till comes the night.
I want no golden stair.

Then when I bid my last adieu and all farewells are given
Just leave my spirit here somewhere.
Oh God, let this be heaven.

This morning I heard a meadowlark and saw the green grass and blue sky. 
I know God's love.
How rich can one man be?
He gave this all to me.

to Be Thankful For

    Be thankful for clothes that fit too snug. It means you have enough to eat.
    Be thankful for the mess you have to clean up after a party. It means you have  a family and friends.
    Be thankful for the taxes you pay. It means you are employed.
    Be thankful that the house needs to be painted and the lawn needs mowing. It means you have a home.
    Be thankful for your heating bill. It means you have been warm.
    Be thankful for the laundry. It means you have clothes to wear.
    Be thankful for the space you find at the far end of the parking lot. It means you can walk.
    Be thankful for the lady that sings off key in the church. It means you can hear.
    Be thankful when people complain about the government. It means you have freedom of speech.
    Be thankful when the alarm goes off early in the morning. It means you are alive.
Receiving all Things
with Thankfulness

     There is a scripture that reads, "And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more."

    I believe the above words are the greatest success formula ever spoken. Anyone can be thankful for good health, for a good job, for family, for loved ones, for freedom, for food.
The real test is being thankful for afflictions and for all of the trials of life - for bad health, for hunger, heart attacks, strokes, and cancer, for poverty, and even for the life and death of a precious loved one.
     Being thankful for "all things" must include the bitter as well as the sweet - then, and only then, will the things of this earth be added unto us, even an hundred fold, yea, more.

      It takes more than humans are capable of to be thankful for afflictions. Asking a merciful God to help us receive all things with thankfulness is the key.
    Those who ask in faith, nothing wavering, will receive even more gratitude, unspeakable joy, and have their lives made glorious. I sincerely testify,

               THE ARK

Everything I need to know, I can learn from Noah's Ark

One: Don't miss the boat.

Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

Three: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

Four: Stay fit. When your 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

Five: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

Six: Build your future on high ground.

Seven: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

Eight: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

Nine: When your stressed, float awhile.

Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
Eleven: No matter the size of the storm, when your with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.

Celebrate Growing Older

Written By Regina Brett, aged 90, of  "The Plain Dealer", Cleveland , Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written."

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick.  Your friends and  parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God  never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't  save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will  this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is not your concern.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have everything you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Remember that I will always share my spoon with you!

Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves.
I don't think
of all the misery but of the beauty that remains

God will hold us responsible for all the wonderful things on earth that we refused to enjoy. -  ancient rabbinical aphorism

Here is an except from a piece written by Oprah Winfrey entitled –
I live in the space of thankfulness – and I have been rewarded a million times over for it.  I started out giving thanks for small things, and the more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased.  That’s because what you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.  Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.

Earth is crammed
with heaven

And every common bush afire with God
But only he who sees, removes his shoes

The Miracle of Biotape

Responses from patients that have used Biotape, for all types of  pain, even stage 4 cancer       bone pain that may be the most difficult of all pain to help along with trigeminal neuralgia
(tic douloureux), kidney
stone pain, vulvadynia pain, and neuropathic pain such as Reflex  
Sympathetic Distrophy
 (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome).

Pain Relief :  Western medical dogma dictates that no medicine or treatment can claim to "cure pain."  The most any product can claim is that a medicine or treatment offers "symptomatic relief of minor aches and pains." The claim for "symptomatic relief of minor aches and pains" can be made only after the efficacy of the product has been established by double blind placebo controlled studies.
No matter how spectacular the relief of pain seems to be in individual case studies, or in hundreds of case studies, until double blind placebo controlled studies are conducted and published in peer review scientific medical journals, all evidence for pain relief or pain healing is considered "unproven," "unsubstantiated" and "only anecdotal." The following letters are presented as case studies for information only.  No claims for pain healing or pain relief are implied or intended.

Mr. Stoddard,
    My daughter was diagnosed stage 4 cancer in September - breast cancer had gone to the lungs, liver and abdomen as well as many bones in her body and we all knew how that would end.  However, her chemo has produced a miracle and she is no longer terminal.
    However, the bone pain has been excruciating for her even with all the medications; i.e., Roxicodone, Duragesic, etc., etc., etc.  And the side effects are toooooo numerous to even talk about.
    We prayed for a miracle - AND YOU BROUGHT IT TO US!!!!!  One morning on the TV my future son in law saw your infomercial.  We were at the end of hoping, but gave it a try. 
    Within 1 hour - 90% of the pain was gone.  Within 24 hours - 100% of the pain was gone.  2 1/2 weeks later we removed the tape - some minor irritation was occurring and we wanted to let the skin get some air.  We expected to re-apply the the tape later that day or the next morning.  It is now day 6 without the tape and she still has NO PAIN AT ALL and has not yet re-applied the tape.
    THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!  My daughter has bone cancer all over her body but yet she is out of bed doing everything - including swimming!  This is what I call living.  Something we never expected her to do ever again.
     I am telling everyone I know - just look at my daughter - is there any reason not to try it - it just might work! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING - INCLUDING GIVING MY DAUGHTER'S LIFE BACK TO HER.  YOU ARE MY 2ND MIRACLE!

(A relative of the above patient was passing a kidney stone and applied Biotape over the point of pain.  He finished passing the stone with no pain and would not remove the Biotape for 11 days because he was afraid the pain would return.)

Dear Mr. Stoddard,
I saw you on TV and decided to try the tapes.  They worked on me so quickly that I don't want to be without them.  I have suffered with sciatica and degenerative disease for more than 40 years and this is the first time I have had anything to give me complete relief.  I give the address to all whom I know suffer from pain and say the Dr. don't know what causes it.
Thank you and your collegues.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Barbara Fuller

 Dear Darrell Stoddard,
    I just wanted to write you a note and thank you for what you and your research have done for my husband.  I don't mean to go on and on with this letter, but I just want you to know all the details in hopes that others in pain will give this treatment a try.
   He has been suffering from back pain for over 8 years. He has worked construction running heavy equipment and at times doing heavy labor for 20 years and was a coal miner for 11 years.  He rode bulls for 5 years. He served in the Utah National Guard Core of Engineers for 24 years.  He has had several injuries and worked hard for several years. Some of his injuries include: 3 auto accidents, industrial accidents, and sports injuries. Because of these injures he sustained two herniated discs in his T5-6 & 7-8 vertebraes in his back.  In July 1996 he had back surgery.  Five weeks after surgery was performed, he was in a roll over without his seat belt on.  Since then his back pain has progressively worsened.  He has suffered severe pain.  He has been to several doctors and has been seeing a Neurosurgeon for the past 7 1/2 years.  All treatment he received has failed including, physical therapy, massage therapy, electric stimulation with the Tens unit, pain treatment shots, and Epiderals.  Every kind of pain pill, anti inflammatory, muscle relaxants, steroids, and sleeping pills to help his pain and to help him sleep through the pain.  In October 2002 he collapsed at work in a trench and broke a rib.  Since then his pain in his back has worsened and then in May 2003 after a couple days of heavy labor on the job, he started having severe muscle spasms around his ribs, chest pain, and shortness of breath.  He was rushed to the Emergency room at our local hospital.  He was in so much pain we thought he was having a heart attack along with his severe back pain. He was rushed by ambulance to a larger hospital to see a cardiologist for further tests.  His heart tested out fine. But the back pain, and spasms continued and even worsened.  There were times when he mentioned to me," just to get him a gun and end it."  After seeing the Neural surgeon again he was put on more pain killers. This time it was Oxycontin.  He hated the way it made him feel and he would be out of it several hours a day.  He hadn't worked a full week since May 2003.  We had some friends who told us about you and after we had done all we knew possible, we thought we would give your treatments a try. What would we have to loose when we have tried everything else. On Monday July 14, 2003 he came home from work early because his pain was so unbearable.  I called your office and we came right up.  He was in so much pain on the way that he had a hard time just sitting in the car.  He received treatment and within ten minutes or less his pain was gone!  If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it!  He was so relieved of pain that after we arrived home he went and hit a bucket of golf balls.  He has had some withdrawals from the pain pills but he is still pain free and it has been almost a month.  He is back to work full time and has his life back.  We are so grateful to you!!!  It is truly a miracle!!  Thanks again!
Renee Madsen


Thank  you, thank you, thank you.  It is truly a miracle!

    After suffering with lower back pain and radiating leg pain for 30 years, and finding myself becoming worse as I age, (I am 48), I am free of leg and knee pain and most lower back pain after 24 hours with the Biotape. I received relief within a few minutes but I find greater relief with continued use.
    I am afraid to remove the tape!  How long should it remain on?  Is it healing the underlying cause of my pain?
    My daughter is only 17 and suffers from pain, too. She has hx of JRA and had MRI showing 4 herniated discs. She has radiating leg pain. She, too has found 100% relief of leg pain after 1 night with Biotape.
     We cannot believe this. I had given up hope to a life of "managing pain." I don't know what to say. You, and the Chinese are very smart. Why won't more Western medical doctors listen? I am taking your book and tape sample to our physician. I am giving my dad and brother the book and Biotape as a loving gift.
      This should be front page news.

Thank you for your skill, intelligence and for caring about humanity.
God bless you.

Dear Mr. Stoddard,

    For many years I have suffered from debilitating spinal problems, the result of World War 11 injuries on Guadalcanal and a subsequent automobile wreck on one of Los Angeles' busiest freeways.  I have had one surgery for a double laminectomy in the upper spine and was scheduled for additional spinal surgery.
    For the past two years I have had sufficient pain that I was taking large quantities of pills per week on a scheduled basis just to keep functioning .  I had tried vicodan and darvocet both several times a day but during the most recent period of about 18 months,  I was taking two extra strength Tylenol three times a day and vicodan at night for a total of 49 pills every week.
    Physical activity had become almost impossible for me and at times I was required to use a cane. Additionally, during the past year I have undergone two series of three injections each of epidural spinal blocks.  These afforded only minimal temporary relief.
    Once I started using the Biotapes I experienced complete pain free relief actually within 24 hours. And, I have been totally without pain since starting use of the tapes 9 weeks ago. I have even planted a garden, a lifetime hobby that I had abandoned several years ago because of pain, and it's the first garden I have had in 6 years.
    It is impossible to adequately relay my gratitude to you.  I have been given a new lease on life and am doing physical things that I haven't done in years.
    Again, my sincere thanks to you and my best wishes for continued success.

Kindest personal regards,

Fred C. Huggins

Dear Mr. Stoddard;
     Thank you - thank you - thank you!!!!!  The other evening I awoke in the middle of the night as I often have over the past 9 years. When I turned the television on your info-mercial was on Smart Inventions.  I don't know why I didn't immediately change channels as I normally don't watch such programs, regardless the longer I watched the more interested I became. As a 9 year survivor of RSDS I thought I had heard, read or seen practically everything about chronic pain.
    Nine years ago I was a eight year veteran Fire Lieutenant working a fire when I broke my foot.  It wasn't a massive fracture or anything like that.  In fact it took almost a month before a podiatrist determined that I had fractured the head of the third metatarsal in my right foot.  After almost six months of treatment, pain medications, steroidal injections and the use of a bone growth stimulator it was decided that surgery was my next option.
     When I awoke from surgery the surgeon informed me that they had removed the head of the third metatarsal as it appeared that circulation had been cut off from it.  In it's place they had placed a Silastic implant.  Three days later it was determined that the implant had not aligned properly and the implant  was removed through a new incision that day in the doctor's office.
    What followed was again continued examinations and treatment by practically every "ist" imaginable in the medical profession.  I underwent even more injections in the scar area, Emla cream treatments as well as the use of a TENS unit.  Nothing relieved my pain in fact I was progressively getting worse.
  My employer's doctors eventually determined that I was a maximum medical improvement and I was discharged from the fire service.  Through a physician friend of mine who had been the Chief Resident in Omaha I got a referral to see Dr. Graves at the Mayo Medical Clinic in Scottsdale Az. and was told after examination that I was indeed at maximum medical improvement and that I would have to learn to live with my condition.  Dr. Graves did manage to diagnose that my condition was consistent with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.
      Through the past nine years I escaped the grip the narcotics had on me and lived hour to hour.  I tried many supplements,acupuncture, magnets, creams and treatments in an effort to relieve my pain.  I resisted the temptation to shoot my foot off several times thinking that at least then I would have something that would be visible to fix.  I have even stated that I would try anything up to going somewhere that involved "shaking snakes" and I might even consider that.  
     Yesterday your book and the tape arrived (much faster than I expected) and after I opened up my business and took care of a few details I read the directions on how to apply the tape and placed the tape over my incisions and the forefront of my foot.  I sat back and before I was finished reading the second chapter I could sense a difference in the amount of pain I was used to.  When I got up to handle things in my store I practically fell down.  I could actually "feel" my foot - it wasn't painful to take a step.  I had to take a moment to compose myself and determine if what I was experiencing was real -- after a short time I decided I didn't care if it was real or not -- I was going to make the best of it!  My pain isn't completely gone but all I have ever asked for was for it to be tolerable - this I can tolerate -- If the pain goes away completely that would be fantastic but I know I can handle this.
     My family wants to thank you so much -- my daughter looked into my eyes last night and told me "Dad, I can see in your face how much this has helped you!"  I actually slept all night last night and this morning for the first time in nine years I actually woke up refreshed - I even made my wife pinch me to make sure that this wasn't a dream.
   The residual soreness I am experiencing I believe is most likely due to 9 years of favoring my other foot and attempting to put as little pressure as possible on my right foot.  The reality of it still gives me Goosebumps!
     I ordered the 360 inch roll of Biotape and waterproof tape this morning and wanted to respond to you to let you know my experience!  Please let me know when you go public with this company so that I can invest!  Whatever happens please don't let some major medical company buy this out and put it on some shelf!
Thank you again!

Sir,  we have never met, but I LOVE you.  I am retired on a disability pension from the City of Los Angles, Department of Fire.  I spent the last ten years on the department with severe low back pain. One day after a particularly difficult house fire in Elisian Park, Los Angles, I went back to the station-house and said I could not take the pain anymore and put in for a disability pension. I was examined by five City Doctors. Four of the five agreed that I was not able to perform the duties of a firefighter. The fifth doctor did not see any technical information about me or any of the tests that were done. He was a neurologist and he was not so sure that I could not carry out the duties of a firefighter.  So four out of five declared me "Disabled."
    The City review board declared that I should go on "LIGHT" duty. All I had to do was inspect gasoline stations for illegal gasoline storage. The hard part was getting in and out of the pickup truck. The pain never let up. I retired twenty-two years after starting with the City of Los Angeles.  That was twenty years ago.  The State of California bought me a motorized scooter so I could finish college.  Just by walking from the parking lot to class I was in such great pain I felt like going back home. With the chair I was able to graduate from California State University at Los Angeles with a BS in rehab counseling.  That was in 1991.  In one of my classes a leading back surgeon said "Four years after I operate, the patient will be right back where they were four years before the operation. But DON'T repeat that because that is how I make my living."   I have never wanted surgery but I did avail myself of chiropractic help.  Three times a week for about one year (at a cost to the city of over ONE_HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS).
     I came to Las Vegas, doing all of the packing, loading and moving everything to a house and unloading all with minimal help. I was using the chair as little as possible because I had gotten used to hurting all of the time and I could not afford to hire help. Alcohol did not relieve the pain, it just made me not care.  I have added 1000 sq. ft. to my house by my self. I was learning to do what Dr. Clayton T.M. Ching had told me to do at the start of my pain.  There were times the pain brought me to tears and suicide seemed to be the only way out.
     I have tried anything I saw advertised for pain.The doctor was giving me a prescription for narcotic pain medicine.  Percocet 10 mg up to six a day.  It would slow the pain, but the pain would never leave. 
     I tried "Super Blue Stuff"; It helped sore muscles, but not the low back chronic pain. Your TV add caught my attention as it had to do with pain. I sent for the $39.95 package. I really had only money to lose.  I would try anything to stop the incessant pain.  The package arrived and I set it down by my chair and thought I would get to it someday soon. Two days later, I felt, and was in more pain than usual so I thought I had better try the stuff, but was really prepared for nothing to happen.
     I took one strip and placed it vertically as shown in the directions and then the piece across my "dimples."   I stood there, not believing what I was not feeling. Thirty years of suffering GONE.  I did not know what to think.  I did not know how to walk without a cane or walk a little hunched over. I was in total shock. I laughed and said "I don't believe it." Thirty years seeing doctors, xray, MRI, Catscans, adjustments.  I went to Bingo with my wife and touted my miracle cure. You should get some sales from this as I was walking tall and proud. I have been in situations that a mere "Thank you" just was not enough. I would say "God Bless You," but I am sure that he has already done that. So I LOVE you from the bottom of my heart, Thank you.

Note You may call Mr. Purdy at 702-878-4462  He said he would be happy to talk to anyone about the success he has had with Biotape.

Editors Note:  Mr. Purdy sent the following letter when I wrote to ask permission to use his letter:

Sir, You may use my letter, name, address, phone number, my truck, car or any thing else I have. I am still questioning my sanity. I have forgotten what it is like to live without pain. Whatever motivated you in the first place is not a secret to me. I think it was Erich Frome, or one of his colleagues that said "I do not believe there is a GOD, I KNOW IT!"  These are my feelings. I do not ask why it took thirty years for me to get rid of the pain, I thank HIM for allowing me to find it now and be pain free for what ever is left of this existence. I thank you for listening to him. I do know you are blessed and I pray that the blessings you receive are tenfold ad infinitum. You have my prayers, blessings and permission to use anything that GOD has bestowed unto me.

Dear Mr. Stoddard,
   I am putting in writing the wonderful results my husband has experienced with "Biotape".  My husband, Al Palladino, had consistent back pain.  He was taking codeine and an anti-inflammatory drug.  After consulting with many prominent doctors, trying pain management, acupuncture, chiropractic aid, using magnets and heating pads to no avail, he finally scheduled lower back surgery.
     One week before my husband's surgery June 16, 2003, we received our Biotape.  Upon application he found almost instant relief.  My husband is still pain free, two months (August 14, 2003) later! (Christine reported a year later
11-16-04 that her husband is still pain free and never had the surgery.) Now my husband isn't taking any pain medication, drinks plenty of water instead of soft drinks and has lost about ten pounds as a bonus.
     In conclusion, I would like to thank you for the new lease on life you have given to my husband and therefore, to our entire family and me. Keep up the good work!

Sincerely, Christine Palladino

     I recently had a friend give me a few strips of your black Biotape, and she helped me apply it to two areas of my ribcage where I've received damage to the ribs from radiation treatment for breast cancer.  For ten months, I've had pain that was only slightly relieved by steroids and Lortab.   Within 24 hours of the application of your tape, I could take a breath for the first time in about 3 months without stabbing pain! 
     Your product is incredible, and at first I really didn't want to believe that the relief was due to the tape.  Last night, I took the tape off one of the ribs but left it on the other rib, and I'm noticing that as the day goes on I'm getting the old pain back. Could it also be that there is some interaction and conductivity between the two separate patches of tape that makes it even more effective as a pain killer? 
     I can't convey to you my gratitude for the development of this product strongly enough, and as for detractors of the science behind this product, I say, phooey on you and I hope you never hurt like I do. So there.

Thank You very much,
Janet Kirsch

Good morning Darryl,
A while back we bought the headache band and 5th generation tape, mainly for our son. I did email you and say how fast it helped him, but I thought I would let you know how things are progressing.

Christopher is adopted, we have had him since he was a few months old. He was born too soon and weighed in at a big 2lbs. Within weeks of his birth he had a shunt placed into his brain as the ventricles were not working, I believe he had a blood vessel break open. He was diagnosed as an FAE child, cerebral palsy, Hyperactive and attention deficit, he also landed up with seizures. Over the years ( he is now almost 19) we have used diet etc to help him. He did not have pain challenges until he got into his middle school years and was slammed up against walls by the other kids who did not understand him. He became seizure free until that started. His head pain was terrible to see and the pain killers did nothing to help. He was at one point left too long in seizure mode in the hospital and it left him with a left arm that does not work. This gives him pain, plus where old tubing is left in under the skin and the Drs will not remove it. He was also wacked with the wide end of a pool cue by a so called friend which also left him in pain. He spent this last summer, at home, totally incapacitated in being able to function normally. Anything we got from the Allopathic side was no good. We just got, nothing wrong, take a pain killer. These do not help Christopher at all. Picture a soon to be 19 year old special needs young man, wanting to get out there and work and he is stuck at home. Cannot go out with his friends. He was like an old man, stuffling along and going for short walks to the car and going for a ride with his father in the neighbourhood.

Then our daughter reminded us of the Biotape. Within 10 minutes of using the headache band Christopher was painfree in his head, I then taped the area's of pain on his chest, groin, left shoulder and wrist, went shopping and came back to one very happy fellow jumping up and down with happiness. One cannot, unless we have been there and done that, realize the freedom he felt, after years of mostly constant pain and then the devastating summer, realize the absolute relief to not have to deal with such agony. He has now been using the tape and band for around 6 weeks. He has gone 24 hours now without the need of the band on his head. He still keeps the tape on his body, mainly because it is just staying there and not peeling off. He wrist that is almost attrophied is relaxing more, but slowly. He is one happy fellow and is now able to go look for work with his counsellor.

What would we do without this tape. Keep up your research and if the FDA think this is all  junk, just pass along our story. I would like to see them use it themselves and then see if it is junk. It has worked for our family.

Be glad in your work and know how much it is to see our son with a body that is pain free at last.  Delayne Groen. Winnipeg Canada

I would not be without this tape, I use it for sciatica, neural pain and wrist pain,
and am happy you have a wider size.  Thank you for the relief to my awful pains, I was nearly unable to work because of them.  Bettye Pfau

To Mr. Stoddard

    In November Of 1996 I had a tumor (benign) removed from my esophagus via a right thoracotomy, in other words they split me between the ribs on the right side flattened my lungs and removed the tumor.
    Over the years I have endured many trigger point injections to "fix the pain from my incision," ya right ... I have also had nerve blocks with little or no effect.  The Doctors said it would get better, what they meant is, "I should get used to it."
    My wife heard about you and got hold of some papers about you.  After reading those papers for myself I thought, "What a bunch of B.S.!" (It's a guy thing).
    After being hounded for a month my wife and I happen to be in the area so she got my appointment with you.  I figured what the heck, I'd go just to get her off my back. (another guy thing)
    WOW within ten minutes of your treatment NO PAIN, after six years on oxycontin NO PAIN.  I tell my wife every day, thanks for hounding me, and now I'm telling you, thanks for all your research you have done to accomplish what you do.
Thanks again.

My name is John Anagnostou. Firstly I would like to thank you for making Biotape available to us in Australia. After 10 years of chronic back pain and spending tens of thousands of dollars seeing just about every practitioner and doctor and trying many products, Biotape is the only thing that has given me relief and I received the relief within hours.
Thanks again and best regards

Dear Dr. Stoddard,
I am a 40 year old mother of two and currently a nursing student, I have lived with chronic pain in my back, right leg, right scapula (the lower portion burned), my neck upper shoulder, and some times would radiate to the right side of my jaw and face. I have lived with this pain for over 7years now. My partner saw your commercial about Biotape and ordered it for me along with the hydrating formula as well. I was sceptical at first because I have tried every thing under the sun all to be let down again.  I tried the tape and I was stunned with the results my pain is almost gone, it is at a point where it is tolerable.  I can't tell you how happy I am to have such relief after seven long years that the pain stole from me. Thank you so much and god bless you.


Carrie L. Buchholz

Name: Jesse Byrtus
   Ten years ago I had three bad skiing accidents which severely damaged my right shoulder (rotator cuff). It took weeks for me to be able to use my arm, and months before I could be without constant pain. From that time on, I have been severely restricted in my activities. Every-so-often when the pain is gone, I forget, and do something that hurts it again. Two weeks ago, was one of those times. I hurt my shoulder so badly that I couldn't sleep, turn a doorknob, brush my teeth, shave, eat with my right hand, or do anything with it. Even immobilizing it with a sling, and strapping it to my body would not stop the pain. I tried ice, heat, magnets, balms, and nothing helped.

     Having lived with this type of problem for years, I knew the normal pattern of healing for my body, and realized that something was really damaged this time. It was not getting better and the pain remained acute. Last week I ordered the 4th generation Biotape. I applied a tape pattern that radiated outward from the center of the pain, and crossed the outer ends with tape at 90 degrees. It looked like a broken wagon wheel. Upon application I felt...something. That night I slept pain free, and could feel my shoulder was very warm. Also my right palm was very warm. I was aware of this because of the radiating heat, which by other body parts could feel from those points. It was as though my shoulder and palm were little flames warming the surrounding areas. Even my right cheek could feel the heat emanating from my right shoulder.
     The next day I could use my arm with only slight discomfort and rarely any pain. By the next day there was no pain ever, and I had full use of my arm again. I could even dry my back off with a heavy bath towel using my right arm! I only avoid the most extreme sweeping arm movements overhead. It has been four days, and the tape is still on after four showers. All pain is still gone, and when I palpate the area there is no tenderness. Summing it up; my shoulder feels better, and works better than it had since the first accident 10 years ago. Thank you Mr. Stoddard. Feel free to contact me with questions.

Thank you for your help,
I was in horrible pain after a car accident and wasn't getting any better. I purchased your pain tape and was finally able to move my neck!  I ordered more tape and placed where your book instructed and I have made a lot of progress.  The pain was so bad that I was wondering if I should go on living.  Thank you for helping me to live again.
Bless you!

Dr. Stoddard
Please help. I have been in a wheelchair for over six years as a result of SCI in the L1 and T12 spinal area. One nerve was severed during the accident and I am in pain most of the time.  I am tired of the pain and medications.  How do I get on the list for one of your treatments and where do I go.  Read about you in Natural Cures by Kevin Trudeau. 
Help me.

Peggy Napoli 

Dear Peggy,
I practice in Provo, Utah and also in Houston, Texas; and Orlando, Florida. You should try our Biotape for pain and loss of function from your spinal injury before coming to see me: Read about Biotape and my pain treatments at: http://www.healpain.net
Blessings on you,
Darrell Stoddard, Founder - Pain Research Institute

Dear Darrell
       I have tried your tape treatment for four days as well as the water and salt you sent. I am truly amazed. It helped a little the first day and much more the second day.  I would say it has eliminated 70 % of the nerve related pain and helped with muscle spasms. I am so excited and energized.  I am a little afraid to believe this is possible. Can something so big be so simple. I am going to work on getting off the medications or at least reducing the dosage of neurontin and zanaflex.
       Usually when weather fronts move through our area I am in terrible pain. This week we went from a high of 80 degrees to a low of 28 degrees in 24 hours with electrical storms included and I was in almost no pain. I am still waiting to see if this will last.  Sorry to be so skeptical but nothing in six years has helped significantly. I usually drug myself to get through these weather changes or any over doing physically. I actually feel more like I did before my spinal cord injury six years ago.

Thank you.  This is a God send.

Dear Mr. Stoddard,

      My name is MaryAnn Cummings, I’m 42 years young and I live in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I have been in pain everyday (in my ear, my upper and lower gums, all of my teeth. and my cheek and jaw on the left side of my face) at times very severe pain since November 2005.  I have seen 2 MD’s, 2 maxillofacial oral surgeons, 2 dentists, 1 ER doctor, 1 neurologist, 1 chronic pain/back specialist doctor, 1 chiropractor and 1 physical therapist.  None of which could help me.  I was diagnosed with several different things from TMJ to TN and maybe it could all be in my head.  I was on Aleve every 4 hours since the pain started but as became worse and worse I was put on Nerontin, then Lyrica for nerve pain.  I was also told to take Lortab, 800 mg of IB and to use hot and cold packs.  All of this never really helped and I was feeling off, not myself with all the drugs.  The pain was at its worse the first time I talked with you and you stated I’d had nothing to loose and everything to gain so I didn’t hesitate to order the Biotape.  That weekend after I ordered the tape and waiting for it to arrive, I had the worse pain of my life!  I now know why people want to commit suicide just to stop the pain.  Thank goodness I had my faith, knowing the Lord would not give me more then I could handle.  Nevertheless I went through 2 days of nonstop insane and severe pain and that was while I was on Lortab, 800 mg of IB, Aleve and hot/cold packs!  That following Monday night I received the Biotape and immediately put it on.  I had stopped taking all meds except the Lyrica (needed to wean myself off slowly) as of Sunday.  So Tuesday and Wednesday were great during the day but at night the pain came back.  I then took your advice and made sure I was hydrated, I was drinking plenty of water but I forgot to use the salt you sent with the tape.  That night I put the salt in my non-chlorine 1 liter glass of water and no kidding I had no pain and was able to sleep the night through!  It has now been 10 days that I have been PAIN FREE SINCE November 2005!  I cannot express my deepest gratitude for what you have done for me as well as my family who would like to thank you as well!   I am back to my old self and completely DRUG FREE!!!  Thank you, thank you, and thank you!!

     I would be more then happy to be a spokesperson for you at anytime or even a referral for new customers.  I totally believe in the product and if I could help just one person in severe, chronic pain then all my pain would have been worth it!  I have already told and referred many of my co-workers  I am going to be your best salesperson because I have no problem telling people how I was able to get rid of my pain with your help.  I’m one of those go-getters, when pain is out of the equation!  

Again, thank you so much for helping me!

Your friend,

Mr. Stoddard,
      I am writing to say thanks!  Not only has Biotape helped me overcome pain, but it has helped many others that I love.  I used the tape about 5 years ago when I could barely stand from a seated position.  My lower back hurt constantly and was interfering with my daily life.  Chiropractic visits only helped temporarily.   I saw an infomercial about Biotape and order some of the lovely old black tape.  Within a week I was pain free.  I couldn’t believe it!  A few months ago, (5 years later) I had some lower back pain and chronic neck pain so I decided to order some more.  I was pleased to find the look and feel of the tape had improved!  Again it stopped the pain after only wearing it a week.   But that’s not why I’m writing you today.
     My big story is my mother.  All my life my mother has suffered with pain in her ankle.  When she was 20 she was in a car wreck that crushed her ankle.  After reconstructive surgery she could walk but all her adult life she has suffered with pain in her ankle.  She is now 65 years old.  What has seemed like a lifetime of pain is now life without pain!  I was not sure whether Biotape would help her because of the severity and age of the injury.  Finally I just decided I was going to make her try it.  She laughed but agreed.  The next day she called me and said she thought she could feel a difference in the pain.  The next day I talked with her and she had no pain.  That was in May.  Today she is pain free and doesn’t have to wear the tape anymore.  She is able to walk in the morning and evening even if she has been on her feet all day.  Before Biotape we were renting motorized scooters for her when we went on vacation.  Last Saturday she climbed a mountain with her grandkids!!  You’re invention has changed our lives.  Everyone in my family has used it and found relief.  Many people in our church family have started using it.  I can’t even count the number of people that have started using it since we discovered what it could do for my mother.  Anytime I see someone limping, rubbing their back, or complaining of pain, I tell them about Biotape!

I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Monna O’Kelley

Mr. Stoddard,
    You certainly have my permission to post my letter anywhere you want.  I am glad to promote your product anywhere, anytime!  I have many other “testimonials” I could tell you about.  Just let me know.  A couple others I want to share right now.  My dad has been on dialysis for 2 years now.  He suffers with pain and numbness in his feet (I can’t recall the medical term for it).  I put the tape on the bottom of his feet and he is now pain free.  A lady I attend church with, Joann Suggs, suffered with ankle and foot pain for years.  She could not stand or walk for any long period of time and has fallen several times due to the pain.  After one day of wearing the tape, she went with her grandchildren to Six Flags in Atlanta, GA.  She walked from opening to close at the amusement park and was pain free.  I could go on and on but I won’t.
    You have changed the lives of many people I love and I thank you for that!

Subject: Biotape is beyond words
Dear Dr. Stoddard,
      Dec. of 2006, I got a horrible unbearable  pain in my left breast. From than till the end of Feb. of 2007, I was going to Doctors, being referred to specialists, e-xrays, than the diagnosis was shingles in the left breast. The reason it took so long to diagnosis is because the shingles are or were inside, absolutely none on the outside. The Doctor gave me some pain medication and it did not stop the pain. The Doctor told me that I could have pain up to a year or life time. 
     A friend of mine, told me about Biotape and gave me a small amount to put on the area that was so painful, this was in the morning. Unbelievabe, within five minutes the pain was receding and by the next day the pain was gone. I have changed the tape once and have found that when I have worn the tape for a week my breast starts to get uncomfortable than I change the tape again. I have used the tape for 2 1/2 weeks.  I would recommend the tape to anyone who has pain. Thanks for all your research and making Biotape available.

Mr. Stoddard
I want to personally thank you for saving my life. There are very few good doctor's with any intregity left. It is all about the money.  I forgot if I got your wedsite from Kevin Trudea's Book or Bottom Line Health it does not really matter. It isonly important that I found you. Two years ago,it seemedas though it happened over night but my symptoms weregradually becoming more noticeable over time, starting in my teens I thought it was just old age creeping up on me. First it started with knee injuries then my upper back and neck started really bothering me at 41 years of age. I had been in a car wreck 5 or 6 years prior to these symptoms I thought it was result of the wreck, sometimes this does not show up for several years. The headaches were misable. Always in my neck , back of the head and top of the head. It seemed like I went for a solid year and had a headache everyday. I  went to Orothpedic, Chiropractor, Neosurgeon, and General Doctor. Had and MRI done that said I had a mild bulging disk in my neck C6, slight herniation at T3 and T4 and a mild herniation at T8,T9. T3 and T4 were off the midline.T6 was the worst of all as far as inflamation and being out of place the MRI said nothing about it but the chiropractor had to constantly pop it back in. You could see it on x-ray. I was going to a chiropractor 2 times a week some of the things the chiropractor told me made some sense. He told me to quit drinking coffee and cokes and drink water. He wanted me to start working out which I know a strong back does help. However none of these specialist really helped me very much. They really did not listen to what I was telling them as with most doctor's they are only treating symptoms and not getting to the rout cause and getting rich in the process. I kept telling them just the slightest of activity and my back would be out of place and my head was about to explode, I told my Chiropractor I would roll over in bed and jump out of place and that my neck was constantly poping and felt like I had grit in it. It felt like I was sleeping on a concrete pillow at night I could never get comfortable. I also told the neurosurgeon this he said he could bring a dozen 45 year old men off of the street and none of them would be any worse off than I was. I knew this was not normal I felt helpless. I tried several other natural remedies, CMO for one it did nothing , then I ordered your biotape it did nothing however you sent me two packages of sea salt, I thought nothing of it and threw it on the counter it set there for three weeks. Then one day I decide to follow your instructions and start taking this with non-chorlinated water. Within 4 or 5 days days I could tell a noticeable difference. Not only did it seem like my back was better but my energy level was out the roof, the headaches started getting less and with less severity. I not only started researching sea salt but other aliment remedies. All of the major aliments cancer, heart disease, arthristis, diabetes are all tried together in my opinion. However when I started taking your sea salt I read an article on the web about 24 different things sea salt along with water were essential for. Three tipped me off as to what my problem was. One was slobbering all over your pillow at night, 27% of your bones are made of salt and a salt deficiency was the leading cause of osteoporsis, and salt deficency would lead to irregular heart beats but would regulate high blood pressure. I had all of these symtoms. I was on the verge of serious health problems. I was severely dehrydrated. Luckily I did not destroy my back during this period because I work extremely hard everyday. I have been taking sea salt for about  3 months I am almost completely healed it is amazing and so are you. Thank you so much. My mom had the worst case of arthritis I had ever seen she has past away. Neither my mom or I ever ate much salt because doctor's are constantly telling us it is bad for us and table salt may be. However I only wish I could have found you sooner I watched her suffer the last 15 years of her life and now I know the answer. My mother was a coca cola addict that may have been my biggest challenge if I could go back in time. I always told her I thought the cokes were a lot of her problem, then I had no research to back it up it was only a guess. I know now she was severely dehydrated. For me personally I will never drink soft drinks or coffee again maybe an occasional cup of decaff. It will only be non chlorinated water and a pinch of sea salt a couple time a day. If I had not received this miracle from you, I would either be insane or dead. The good Lord left us the answers we have just been brain washed by big medicine and all of these man made products that are killing us even the water out of our on taps.You and your associates are truly miracles from God. Godly people have intergrity.
Thank you so much,

    Recently I received a notice of a class action suit that must be against you for something like fraud. I threw it away but the more I've thought of it the more I thought you might need some defense. I have ordered three rolls of Biotape and they have helped me wonderously. I was not able to knit for nearly 20 years and when my fingers or thumb start to hurt I put on the tape and within hours they are nimble again and I can knit. I cannot tell you what a wonderful difference your tape has made in my life.
    Is there something I can do to help you? Come to your defense somehow?

    I'm glad to have you use my letter. I have even more good news. I have developed sciatica on top of diabetic neuropathy. I've been taking vicadin at night and in the morning, which I'm not nuts about doing but is the only way I can get thru a day or night. So when I got in bed last night, I was still in great pain despite vicadin. And tho I have only used your biotape on my hands and wrists over the years, since I'd just been thinking of your letter and read the other letters on your web site I got up and cut a piece of tape and put it around my ankle. Within 20 minutes I was asleep. This morning I have not even had to take vicidin, the tape is still on and I'm pain free. It's miraculous.  How can anyone sue you over that?  You're wonderful.
    Anyhow, can I still buy the tape from you?  I shall need more if I'm going to use it on my legs!

Dear Mr. Stoddard,
   I cannot believe that you and your company are being persecuted and fined for the products that you produce.  I would like to tell my story of pain.
    I was not able to sleep about 10 years ago. I was in excruciating pain. I went to watch TV, flipping from one channel to another and noticed a title that said: "take care of your pain". It was you, talking about a tape that can be use to help for alleviating pain.
You gave a web site to investigate more. I rushed to my computer and read all about it. Immediately I ordered the tape and about 10 days later I got it in the mail. I opened the package and learned how to use it. I was putting the tape on my right knee and cover it with the tape used to keep the tape secure to my skin.
   This was an incredible experience! I WAS NOT IN PAIN ANYMORE! I could not believe it! I put the tape on my back that was the in the worse pain one can imagine. I am a survivor of 2 back operations, done 1985, to correct a 92 degrees scoliosis, and osteoarthritis. I had gained about 30 lb weight and walked with a cane. It was not and easy life.
     Free of pain I was able to start exercising and reach a point that I didn't have to use the cane. I recovered my balance and lost weight. People living in my building started to ask me: “What are you doing that you look so well, you lost weight and walk straight?"
Then, neighbours and friends ask about this wonderful tape. For most people it was a success and they are now free of pain.
    I cannot thank you and the people that work with you for your dedication in doing your research, THANK YOU MR. STODDARD YOU HELPED ME FOR EVER.  YOU HAVE GIVEN ME A NEW LIFE. I CAN TRAVEL TO VISIT MY CHILDREN….
     I just celebrated my 70th birthday and celebrated in style …I will travel to the USA to celebrate with my children…I hope that this situation that you are going through will be resolve and you will be able to continue contributing on helping people like me.

    I am writing of my experience meeting yourself and Mr. Stoddard at the offices of Dr. Paul Ameison two weeks ago and the results of that meeting.  
    I am currently undergoing treatment for lung, bone and brain cancer and was attending Dr Ameison's clinic on the 1st November this year having a Vitamin C infusion,which is part of my program for a natural cure for my condition.  The bone cancer has spread from the right hip to the left knee, and has resulted in a hole forming in the knee, causing me considerable pain.  At that time, I was unable to walk unaided, the pain was quite sharp with pressure of any sort, so walking most uncomfortable.
   I was fortunate to have the opportunity to attend a session with Janette and  Mr.  Stoddard that same day, and was introduced to the Biotape which I am wearing today.  When the tape was put in a cross shape across my knee, and I stood up, the pain level was reduced from and 8 to a 2-3 immediately, which was wonderful.
     I have kept the tape on and added more to my reight leg, which was beginning to feel painful, as the cancer had started to move into that area, and again, the pain I was feeling has diminished, if not gone completely.
    I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to meet with Mr. Stoddard, who is a charming and gentle man, with the welfare of his patients of great importance, and to have met Janette who I am enjoying having a continued association with.  
   The other positive that has come out of the discovery of the wonderful product of Biotape, is that I no longer have to take the very strong painkillers I was on, which had other side effects that were unpleasant and meking me feel unwell.  I just take a couple of Panadol during the day which is all I now need.
     I want to wish Janette all the very best and thank her again for coming into my life.  I am now so much better able to deal with my condition.

All the very best,

Hi Darrell,
     I used Biotape last year when I was first diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis. I had excruciating pain in both knees and one shoulder. The pain felt like what a knife stabbing the shoulder would feel like. Nothing would take away the pain. I tried Aleve, Celebrex. Motrin. Nothing worked. I heard about Biotape from a friend  and bought it on the internet.  It arrived  2 days later and I put it on the painful areas and within minutes the pain went away. It was a miracle. I'm so
thankful and grateful  that I was able to find something that really worked on severe pain. I tell all of my family and friends about it. Recently my cousin fell in the shower and broke her toe - she was in terrible pain and I had a small piece of Biotape (that had been used at least 3 times). I put it on her toe and she immediately had major pain relief. My Rheumatoid arthritis is much better now. I'm taking low dose antibiotic protocal of Minocin 100 Mg twice a day. The first RA doctor I went to wanted to put me on heavy duty RA medicine. I was not comfortable with that approach because many of those drugs cause kidney and liver damage and sometimes lymphoma. And I was only 40 years old at the time with a 5 year old daughter and I didn't want to risk getting more health problems. So far I am doing really well. My blood work showed that my sed rate was 9 which is excellent. 
     Thank you so much for helping me to get thru the worst pain ever.

     My left leg was severly injured in an auto accident 34 years ago. After 3 surgeries and months/years of physical therapy I was left with limited motion (bending knee) and mild to severe pain non-stop for 34 years.
      After one treatment with Mr. Stoddard and T. McCurry, CNHP my level of pain went from  $1.00 to about 3 cents.
        Thank you both
        Thank you Jesus

WOW !!!  I can get in my car without PAIN !

Darrell Stoddard,
    I wanted to tell your that I bought your Biotape about 3 yrs ago. It did not stick and I felt it did not work.  So, I stored it.
    I just did not follow your directions. Recently I pulled this 3 yrs old tape out of my medicine cabinet and followed the directions this time. I shaved the hair on my back, cleaned off the skin and applied the tape followed the directions.
     Let me tell you, the tape was like a miracle. I was hoping that it would help just a little, in maybe a few hours. The pain was gone and within minutes. I don't know if it was just a placebo effect or that it really worked.  The severe pain in my lower back was gone.
     I took it off about 2 hours later to take a shower and the pain came back, but not as bad.  I put that same tape back on my back after the shower and held it on with some medical cloth tape. Again, the pain was gone, within minutes. I left tape on all night long and in the morning, I felt like a new man. 
     Thank you for Biotape.  It has literally saved my life and my marriage.

I just ordered some of your other Biotape products. I think these will make very good Holiday Gifts.

Nine years ago I had two ruptured C-Spine disks that two Neurologists insisted would compromise my life style if I did NOT have a laminectomy. One treatment with Biotape along with life style changes described in your book - mainly hydration - and I have been doing everything the doctors said I would never do again.

     Thank you and bless you for this work I hope many people in need get to experience BIOTAPE....
I probably would have raved a bit more about BIOTAPE - it really does an amazing job some pain did go instantaneously and it has reduced the size of my ganglion on my wrist. In the case of the inverted cuboid bone it significantly reduced the pain but the pain didn't go completely until the ligaments had been re stretched over time and the bone move back into correct alignment -but it's probably the best healing device since the invention of the acupuncture needle a huge step forward (cause once it is on it starts to work and keeps working -keeping the circuit reconnected and allowing the body to heal itself). Trauma from post Osteopathic type manipulative treatment is significantly reduced!

Subject: Thank You

In August of 2008 I was within 10 days ( the appointments were made) of having a nerve in my neck burned in half with radio waves to reduce or eliminate my near constant neck, shoulder and left arm pain. My neck hurt daily and pain was exaserbated by moving my neck up, down, or to either side, in other words by doing almost anything.  Most of the time when I turned my head to the left I would get shooting pain down my left arm and into my thumb and index finger. Once the neck pain started my shoulder and neck muscles would often tighten up to the point that I would get severe headaches. Frequently the pain made sleeping impossible until 2 or 3 Oclock in the morning. The combination was very dibilitating. Over the preceding 4 years I had been to many orthopedic doctors, neurologists and radiologists, 19 in all, trying to find a cure for my pain. I was diagnosed with bone spurs at the juncture of C-5 and C6 but was advised not to have surgery because of the specific location of the bone spurs and the potential serious complications of such a surgery.  I was prescribed Hydrocodone and was taking 5 to 6 tablets a day for pain.  When that wasn't sufficient I augmented my pain pills with large doses of alcohol in the late evening in order to get some sleep.  I knew this was a potentially leathal combination but felt anything was worth risking to just make the pain go away enough to sleep and escape the pain.  I was also using an ice pack on my neck 4 to 6 times a day for 20 to 30 minutes a session.  My neck pain was running my life and controlling everything I did.  A friend of my wifes, Elaine Mansius, Kennewick, WA had given me a copy of your book "Pain Free for Life" that I had had for several weeks but not read. She also gave me several feet of your generation 4 Biotape. I am college educated with a maintenance and engineering background and for much of my life had been skeptical when it came to non- traditional medication.  That's why I waited until the last minute before reading your book.  In my youth I was a Marine Corps aircraft electrician and I have always had an interest in how the body works. Together these facts helped me understand and "demystify" what you were saying. Two hours into your book, at page 72, I stopped reading the book, shaved my neck, and had my wife put the tape on me.  Within 2 to 3 hours my pain was nearly gone and completly tolerable. In the 9 months that I have been wearing Biotape I have taken fewer pain pills than I used to take in an average  3 days period. I need no alcohol to fight pain and though I still ice my neck I do so less than 10% as often as I did before using Biotape. Using Biotape has lierally given me back my life. I can do everything that I need to do to live a functional life, I sleep like a baby and I can once again do most of the recreational activities that I enjoy.  Thank you Mr. Stoddard. Words can't adequately express the the degree of positive change your product has made in my life.

To: Jeanette Jones of Cutting Edge Health:

It is with the highest expression of gratitude  for your recent successful treatment of my excruciating sciatic pain using Darrell Stoddard's Biotape that I make this declaration.

The chronic musculoskeletal pain and neurological transmitting disorders that I have experienced even after theree years of the most exhaustive and expensive Allopathic, Neurological, Natural and Nutritional medical treatments and proceedures, that I have undergone without any success has now been resolved. I can now garden, do my housework and even get a painless nights sleep. This has made an incredible difference to my mood and wellbeing.

Your research and dedication to learning the healing of the human body deserves my deepest appreciation.

Yours Sincerely,
Anka Silburn

Dear Sir,
     Every time God decides to heal someone, he is showing incredible mercy, love, goodness, and compassion towards that person.
      God has surely shown me mercy by allowing me to find Bio Tape!
      I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and have experienced severe pain in the past. Through use of the Bio Tape my pain has been reduced to manageable levels. While I know that God is the Author of all things good and wonderful, I am convinced that he guided my footsteps to you and allowed you to be a blessing unto my life.
    Now with the ability to manage my pain, I am able to maintain my normal daily activities. You have no idea what a blessing it is for me to retain my independence and not have to rely on others.
      I wanted to write you this short note and offer my thanks for offering a product that has changed my quality of life.
        From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!!!

Several months ago I was involved in a car accident. My car was rear-ended and I suffered severe whiplash. The pain in my back and neck was acute. My doctors and physical therapist prescribed pain killers, anti-inflammatory medicines and exercises. I followed their directions and regimes religiously. However, even after months of this, the pain in my lower back remained acute and debilitating.

Realizing I was getting no relief from “traditional” methods and wanting to see my suffering end, a friend told me about auricular medicine and Biotape and had me check out www.healpain.net. At 1:30 in the morning, during another pain-filled sleepless night, I contacted Mr. Stoddard by email. Fortunately, I live within driving distance from him, and was able to make an appointment to meet with him.

While I wouldn’t put myself in the category of complete skeptic regarding auricular medicine, I will say I was completely unfamiliar with it, but felt desperate enough to try anything to ease the pain.

After explaining, in depth, how the biotape helps connect the broken connections in your body, Mr. Stoddard applied the biotape to my back and did an auricular treatment to my ear. I thanked him and left his office, which happened to be on a lower level floor. As I climbed the stairs to the parking lot, I realized the sharp stabbing pain in my back was more of a dull ache. By the time I arrived home, my back was not hurting. No stabbing, no aching, no pain. I didn’t care if it was psychosomatic. My back did not hurt for the first time in months.

After doing a little happy dance, I did what many in my circumstance would do, I overdid it. I had not been able to even bend for months, so in this sudden freedom from pain, I cleaned and exercised and carried things I couldn’t have lifted before. And…I was still fine. That was Wednesday.

Saturday, feeling so terrific, I undertook the cleaning of the garage. Midway through the day, my back started hurting. The effects of overdoing it had really come back to bite me. It had been so incredible not to have that pain for those amazing 3 days, this setback was devastating. I had such high hopes for this Biotape. That night as I was getting ready for bed, I realized the tape had come off at some point during the day. I do not know if the tape coming off or the overwork was the cause of my back pain that day. This is what I do know: Monday morning I had Darrell Stoddard re-apply the tape and the pain stopped again.

I cannot adequately express the gratitude and deep appreciation I feel for Darrell Stoddard. As over-dramatic as this may sound, it is not an overstatement to say that when he gave me my mobility back, he gave me my quality of life back.

Note By Darrell Stoddard:
The following case confirms what we were told by an M.D. who was a neurology pain specialist at the Mayo Clinic for 13 years, "What you do on the surface of  the body can effect everything clear in to the bone." (In this case clear into and including the tongue):

Oct. 11, 2010
Hi My daughter bites her tongue during convulsive seizures and she then complains of her mouth hurting within 24-48 hours afterwards. Will putting the biotape along the chin/jaw line on side that is sore help since it isn't possible to put the tape on her tongue?

Oct. 12, 2010
Thank you for your quick response.  Since my daughter is handicapped, she isn't able to tell me exactly where the pain is (jaw, gum, teeth, inside cheek etc or as you mentioned all areas.).  She only points to the lower jaw -99% of the time on the lower right.  Since, there is blood from where she bites tongue I've just assumed that it is the tongue -both top and bottom surface.   I hadn't given any thought to the pressure from clamp down of the jaw etc. so you may be right.

She had a convulsive seizure yesterday so after I wrote you, I did put some tape on both sides of her chin.  She pulled off the left side, but the right side is still on this morning so we'll see if she complains of any pain the next few days.  (When she complains, its usually crying for most of 1 to 2 days before she says it doesn't hurt any more).  Since there was quite a bit of blood this time, from past experience, she should be complaining later today or Wed. so it will be a good test to see if the Biotape helped

Oct. 16, 2010
The doctor had told us to try Motrin - which only upset her tummy so she was crying because of the mouth pain and tummy pain .  Won't do that again!  Doctors also gave us pain pills to try, but that didn't make a dent either in her pain level.  We didn't want to go for a stronger pain pill.  Jenn's dentist just told us to make sure she rinses her mouth with salt water or peroxide several times a day.  She didn't like to do that so it was like pulling teeth to get her to do that more than once. 

Then for some reason a few weeks ago, I thought of the Biotape, (I had purchased the 3rd generation several years ago but was all gone).  So I ordered the 3' roll  6th generation to have on hand for when she drew blood again,  not knowing if it would work putting it on the outside of her face - which is why I emailed you.

Well, so far so good.  She never complained about her mouth/tongue etc. hurting after her seizure this past Monday when she drew blood from her tongue.  She did keep the tape on the right side of her face until Tuesday after lunch.   I'm really impressed that it seemed to work.  It was such a relief for me (mom) and Jenn's dad's nerves not to have to feel useless in trying to help Jenn when nothing we tried worked. 

If Jenn could understand that the tape worked as it seemed to do,  I'm sure she would agree that having something on you face for a few hours is much easier than crying hours on end and wondering why no one will/could help with her distress/pain etc.


Thank you Patty (who fills the orders). The product has worked so well for me that my surgeon has postponed my back surgery and I have regained strength in my left leg. I am a road warrior (salesman) and travel 7 states for my job. I can now drive for hours with NO pain. This order is a back up belt for me, a belt for my wife, and one for my 90 year old mother. I am absolutely amazed by the results.
Thank you so much for your product.

Dear Darrell,

Yes, I would be honored to make a statement on how this headband has helped me.
Last night I put on the new headband before going to bed and this morning my pain has gone down. My TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) head pain is less in addition the pain in my lower back and other arthritis pain in the body is less.

My history of using your Biotape:
      It has been many years of chronic TMJ pain and I have spent thousands of dollars on dental work to help my problem. My husband was watching late night TV and seen one of your commercials that talked about your pain therapy. He told me about this and I would not call the number because I did not think it would work. I went into high end pain and was suicidal so I called the number that my husband gave me. We made an appointment to see you.  
      It was a life changing experience for me to find you and learn about your pain therapy and it was great to read your book to learn how your therapy works on the body. After you put the tape on my neck, I was out of pain by the time we were driving away, it has been a miracle therapy for me.
     Later I bought the headband and I wear it day and night. I have even tested it by not using it because I was tired of wearing my hair the same way so I could wear the headband, the pain would get worse within hours of not wearing it. I'm so happy to be out of pain, I don't care about the hair style.
     Thank you so very much for your pain therapy Biotape and the many years of research you have completed and the many areas around the world you have traveled to research and study and work to create a therapy for pain. Many people can benefit from its use for any kind of pain.

Thank you-Thank you again and again and again.....

Biotape made it possible for my wife to stand up straight after she had been bent over for 22 years. - Claude Hone, South Dakota

Our 5 year old son hurt his finger a few days ago.  He had a bandage on it and last night he started complaining that his finger was really hurting.  When we took the bandage off we discovered that his finger was infected.  There was a big pocket of pus and the finger was swollen, discolored and warm to the touch.  We thought we would be taking him to the doctor the next day to get him on antibiotics to clear up the infection.  We put some Biotape on his finger to help him make it through the night.  The next morning he said his finger was all better and was no longer throbbing.  When we removed the biotape we were amazed to see the change with his finger.  It was no longer swollen, the pus pocket was gone and looked 90% healed.  AMAZING!!!!

As I count my blessings this day, I add you to the top of the list. My back has been causing me great pain again lately and as I pulled out my biotape 2 nights ago and found relief immediately, I thanked God for sending you into my life.  May God bless you, your health, your life and those you love. My association with you has brought nothing but joy and relief from pain and I am happy to call you friend.
All the best to you,
Teri Hunter

I found the book pain free for life from a thrift store. It had a sheet with a few pieces of biotape on it. I have suffered from chronic pain for 6 years since a car accident. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, chronic muscle spasms in my face , neck, shoulders, back. I have constant carpel tunnel symptoms so severe, chronic fatigue syndrome, and the list goes on. I thought oh I'll try this tape on my wrists. Wow, I have not had any numbness, pain in my wrists since putting the tape on. I have it on wrapped securely with other tape. I took it off for a few hours and the burning was unbelievable. I thought my hand was literally on fire. I WILL BE TELLING EVERYONE AND ANYONE about this tape. I don't understand why anybody with pain is not using this. You have me convinced from a piece of paper with a few strips of black tape from a thrift store!! The best dollar I've ever spent.  Thank You so much...Regards, Tamara Graham (Canada)
