      Hi guys

      Has anyone else got this Internet Ad., it's typical as it goes on for twenty minutes or so with McCall talking about everything but what his program actually does - I am wary that some things people advocate can actually make T worse, and I'm very very sceptical - there are going to be hundreds of scams come on board out there because of the publicity T is receiving and an awareness of how many people are affected by it.

      But has anyone else heard of this guy or even ordered his book ($37) or tried his alleged cure?

      Hi Ray,

      File this one in the "Thomas Coleman" department. I believe that his website could be taken down at any time because his cure is so effective that big pharmaceutical companies don't want you to know about it........

      All these "trash"-websites have one single feature in common: the message below is what pops up when you try to close down the window.

      I honestly cannot believe how someone could even consider buying ANYTHING from the website owner. Not to mention actually doing it...

      Thanks. I see there is an Upsell as well, meaning they have other products to sell you along the way after you buy their first product.

      It did sound quite dubious when they start off saying something like this video might be taken down by the big pharma companies and you have to listen all the way to the end. Yuck!

      These kinds of people make me sick!

      My guess is it's a total joke. Every "review" about it is in broken English, and many reviews happened around June which is likely when a marketing campaign was launched. The video format takes the classic approach of appealing to emotion and telling you nothing about the product.

      Don't waste your time.

      maybe neck injury - maybe from BPPV
      The Miracle is that I, and others, have found this site after researching him, before we hit the PayPal button. People like him help people like me find people like you. His video helped me find some helpful ideas - here. The video sounded so fishy that I was compelled to research his "Miracle", and was immediately directed to this site. It couldn't have worked out better for me. I still have my $37 and I haven't wasted any time. Its a MIRACLE!

      I have left ear ring with that airplane plugged feeling. Noticed that when my neck is out of alignment, it gets worse. Neck massages and Chiropractic adjustments help. Other than that - I haven't found anything else that is effective.

      You can get it for $1 if you keep clicking the page away, and then stay on it when the pop up asks you. Afbeelding 1.png

      yeah saw that after posting, not taking it though not even for a buck. This guys video really pisses me off, the way he exploits suffering is insane. He keeps repeating stuff like devestating, neverending, depression, and diminished quality of life and then promises absolute silence with his method. What a w****r

      Yes, I watched a lot of that video and it felt like he was taunting me. I am very slow to anger and have not had a physical confrontation for many years, but I wish that I had the creator of that video in my line of sight right now so that I could cause him pain.
