Host : Necie L. Edwards

NECIE L. EDWARDS—pain management expert, health activist and conference organizer, TV talk-show host, and founder of the Fibromyalgia Patient Education and Support Organization (FPESO)—is here to offer help and hope to the millions of Americans who suffer from debilitating chronic pain conditions. Join her each week on THE PAIN-FREE ZONE.

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2014, NECIE understands how depressing and frustrating it can be living with chronic pain. Drawing upon her professional experience in health and wellness education, she became her own health advocate, conducting extensive research on the causes of chronic pain, treatments, and resources. “I know patients need a partner who empowers them with education and information about their pain issues and how they can be managed and overcome through a mind/body/spirit approach to treatment—without resorting to dangerous and addictive opioids,” she says. “With THE PAIN-FREE ZONE, I hope to help improve the quality of life of pain sufferers everywhere.”

During her show, NECIE will host expert guests, including top physicians, chronic pain specialists, healers, and other professionals who will share their pain management strategies and insights. Listeners are also invited to call in to have their specific issues addressed.
