Finding Affordable Chronic Pain Relief On Ebay Is Easy!
In all the books I've read on chronic pain, there's one subject that is never mention–the expense of it!
I believe if I gathered up all the money I've spent on books, on heat wraps, on massage therapy, on over-the-counter remedies, on infra red light wands and what-not, I could pay cash for a Rolls Royce. I expect it's much the same for you, so I'm happy to be able to share my experience with shopping for pain relief on eBay.
I'm a huge eBay fan. It's one of the first places I look when I need…well, just about anything. Every time I mention this, people ask me if shopping on eBay is safe. I can only say that since 2002 I've made hundreds of purchases and only one auction, for a $5 trinket, went bad. The seller accepted my payment and promptly disappeared from eBay. But every other auction, many of them for items costing more than $200, had a happy ending.
I'm careful whom I buy from. I avoid new sellers with no feedback, for instance. And my experience has been that most eBay sellers are people working hard to provide honest and accurate descriptions of their items, pack them well and deliver them quickly. Over all, my experience has been great and I've saved a whopping big amount of money!
So what sort of things do I buy on eBay for chronic pain relief? Here's an example of something I purchased this week. The item is a brand new book with an enclosed CD containing music designed to entrain the brain waves and alter the listener's perception of pain. This is the listing that was on eBay. Notice that the original publisher's price of this book is $17.95 , but the eBay seller has listed it for "buy it now" for $1. And Here's the notice that I bought this item for a mere $1. My total payout to the seller for the book and postage, which I paid through my PayPal account, was $4.99
I was delighted with the book when it arrived. It was brand new. In fact, it was still sealed in the publisher's plastic wrapper . And both the book and CD contained valuable information.
What sort of things will YOU look for on eBay? For starters, I recommend looking for almost any pain relief item you see advertised on TV. Anytime anything is sold through TV, a large number of items are returned. Many of those returns are still brand new, unwanted only because the buyer realized they couldn't afford the item. Those returns are frequently sold on eBay at greatly discounted prices.
For example, a few years back, when a device for back pain called "The Wave" was being sold on TV for $60 plus shipping, I purchased one on eBay for $15 plus shipping.
To search eBay, I simply type "chronic pain" or "pain relief" into the search bar (without the quote marks) and see what comes up. I've done that now and input some of the results into this blog post, so you can see some of what's available You can click on any of the links below to visit eBay and look for your own bargains in pain relief.
