Nicky Snazell as ‘The pain killer’

My name is Nicky Snazell and I am known to some as ‘The pain killer’. After all, that’s what I do: I like to hunt down and seek out and kill pain, and I expect you want me to kill yours too. Would you like to hire me out as an assassin? I realise how important it is to you to free yourself of unnecessary pain so that you can enjoy life to the full.

What qualifies me to have a go? Well I’ve got nearly years of experience and successful outcomes in treating pain.
How? By hunting down the origins of pain, some of which we are frequently so unaware of. So often I feel like I’m working in the illness industry and not the wellness industry, and I believe that we should focus more on the latter – by preventing health problems before we have to cure them. I am keen to get you to your optimal health for your age, but only if you play the game and invest in the health bank of your future self.

How do I know I can help? For one thing, I have studied health and pain for thirty years, researching how we as humans function at our best. Furthermore, this is backed up by the knowledge and skills I have gained by creating and working within my integrated medical practice, which has given me over twenty-five years of hands-on experience and from which I’ve collected a long list of testimonials from satisfied customers who have managed to conquer their pain. Yes they’ve done it, and now so can you.

I assume that if you’re reading this blog, you would like to know for certain that you can avoid a lot of unnecessary pain for yourself or your patient. Am I right? Then you have come to the right place. I want these blogs to be a practical resource that you can use and apply to your own health and your own life. After all, you are the author of your own life, so what chapter are you writing right now? You may have had no say in how your story started, but you have all the control in the world on what happens in the middle, to end, as well as how many pages your novel contains. You have the power to control your own future health – you just need the knowledge and the skills to know how to do it. This is the information I’m going to give you in these blogs, and despite what you may have been led to believe, your pain is actually in your own hands.

I have spent my life searching for ways to treat pain, and I have travelled all over the world, meeting and learning from countless specialists and professionals during this quest of mine. Now, I want to pour all of that knowledge and all of my experience into you, so that my methods can become your methods, and so that you can conquer your pain, allowing you to have a long, happy life. It sounds relatively simple, doesn’t it? No? Well, it may be simpler than you think.

This series of blogs will discuss healing through an understanding of how neuroscience works, and I believe that this holds the keys to wellness, mental excellence, physical fitness, prosperity, relationship skills, society contribution and having a purpose to live – not to mention, of course, keeping out of pain. I like to imagine all of these things as breaking down into four main sections:
My four keys of health, featuring mind-set, nutrition and hydration, fitness, and lifestyle. You will be able to read about each of these four keys in due course.

Drawing wisdom from both modern medical technology and ancient healing, over the next year I will guide you through your health journey, giving you the knowledge and the tools you need to create the best lifestyle for you. Say goodbye to unnecessary pain and say hello to a fitter, healthier, happier you.

A newspaper headline in November 2014 in the Daily Express announced:
‘How You Can Add Years To Your Life’. The article presented recent research from the Lancet (a medical journal) to back up previously anecdotal evidence, and basically said that having a sense of purpose as you get older helps you live a longer, healthier life. This was also echoed in Viktor E.

Frankl’s book, Man’s Search For Meaning (Rider & Co, 2008), about how man’s sense of dignity and purpose was cruelly stripped from him until death, and how hanging on to a purposeful mission actually extends lives. Write a key purpose on several bits of paper, left in many places, and make sure you keep reminding yourself everyday.
