  1. 1. Dr. Kevin J. Payne Founder! © 2018 Chronic Cow, LLC The science of living well, delivered with care. Chronic Cow ™ Your Life, Lived Well.!™ investor deck, v.2
  2. 2. Problem Over 150 million Americans have chronic health conditions that bring real life problems far beyond our medical diagnoses. We’re left on our own to figure out how to live well under these new, unspoken rules. We need more than healthcare. We need total life care that helps us succeed at life, not just be “good patients.” © 2018 Chronic Cow, LLC

  5. 5. Zach, 28, PTSD & addiction “I can’t see myself, anymore. I tell myself to stop, but I don’t.” His Story: A veteran of three tours in Afghanistan, Zach is living with post traumatic stress. He developed a subsequent addiction to prescription pain medication. Problem: Our analytics showed that Zach needed to first understand his pain and to systematically re-build his sense of identity and control. Solution: We educated Zach about the “pain neuromatrix,” then we helped him increase his pain tolerance and gain emotional distance from its effects. We identified his cornerstone habits and guided his ability to control those small, crucial aspects of his life that allowed him to rebuild a sense of personal control. Zach is back to work as a mechanic and sees a future for himself, once more. “I have more life now. When the pain comes, I know there’s another side.” CASE: Behavioral Change © 2018 Chronic Cow, LLC
  6. 6. Case: Janice, 37, lupus “I don’t trust myself. I’m not sure anyone else does, either.” Her Story: Janis was diagnosed with lupus in her 20s. She and her husband, Robert, felt like her health had taken over their lives. Her condition was unpredictable and they didn’t feel like they could plan for anything. Problem: So much of their marriage had been consumed by sickness and caregiving, they’d stopped making time for the things couples enjoy together. Their partnership had become overwhelmed by contempt and resentment. Solution: We showed them the actual mechanics underlying their mutual distrust and resentment. Then we guided and monitored them through a process of rebuilding their expectations for one another and rebalancing the experiences they shared. “I feel like I have a partner, again, and that I’m able to be a worthy partner for him.” CASE: Relationships © 2018 Chronic Cow, LLC
