Dr. Michael Amendolara

Helping People Find Freedom from Pain

Over 10 years ago, Dr. Michael Amendolara (known by all as Dr. Mike) found himself drawn to the study of the mind-body connection as it relates to chronic pain treatment. He had the best reason of all for this interest—for over 35 years he had suffered from chronic knee, neck and back pain, plus other problems that nothing helped to diminish, and which ultimately resulted in taking prescription pain meds for five years just to function.

“Then I discovered Adam Heller’s Zero Pain Now Program. Within 2 days, I saw an immediate decrease in pain, and within 3 weeks my pain was 90% better,” states Dr. Amendolara. “After 6 weeks, my pain level was 95% better, enabling me to taper off my meds. I haven’t had to take a pain pill in years!”

Dr. Mike has been a licensed medical doctor in NJ since 1989, and board certified in family medicine since 1993. His extensive experience in general primary care medicine, urgent care medicine, sports medicine, and therapeutic musculoskeletal injections enabled him to help many people, but following completion of the intense training program, he now specializes in chronic pain relief using the Zero Pain Now Program and techniques focused on the holistic mind-body connection.

“I love helping people eliminate years or even decades of chronic pain. I use a holistic mind-body approach that requires no physical treatments whatsoever,” says Dr. Mike.

The story he tells of a current client demonstrates how well the approach works. “Bill’s had back pain for three decades and has had very severe low back pain for the past five years. The pain has greatly affected his ability to do the things he enjoys,” shares Dr. Mike. Bill was diagnosed with a “pinched nerve” and a herniated disc. He had tried pain meds, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and even pain management injections but continued to have severe daily pain. He started the Zero Pain Now program to see if he could finally get rid of his pain and get his life back. 

“On day #6 of his program I met with him for a Breakthrough Session. After I led him through a simple but powerful mind body exercise his back pain came down from 5/10 to 1/10. He was amazed at how quickly that happened,” remarks Dr. Mike. “Bill continued the full 28-day program and is happy to report that his pain is now completely gone, despite doing vigorous activity. He’s thrilled with his results.” 

Dr. Mike shares that Bill's results are typical of the results he sees. “I'm thrilled to be able to help people like Bill get rid of years and even decades of severe pain and get their lives back!”
