We are a nation in pain. We need relief and we want it now. This collective way of thinking has ended us in a social and economic opioid crises of massive proportions. The price of pain for Americans is upwards of $300 billion and rising, including the costly toll of human suffering and side effects. The US healthcare system functions as a “sick care” system treating symptoms instead of root cause issues. Time starved doctors treat pain patients with pills and procedures. We can do better, we MUST do better.
We need to think differently about the evaluation and responsible management of pain. Pain is a puzzle to be solved rather than a symptom to be suppressed. Pain is a signal that the complex system of integrated networks known as the human body it out of balance.
A well-researched powerful prescription provides significant relief for many types of pain, all without side effects. The successful evidence based alternative to pills and procedures for the treatment of pain is a comprehensive lifestyle approach with food as a focus.
The gold standard is a whole- food plant- based diet that feeds our gut microbiome to reduce inflammation, boost immunity and prevent and reduce pain. Consuming high quality nutrient- rich foods to repair and support our bodies’ cell structures translates into healthier joints, muscles and organs. Fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and whole grain provide the epigenetic information to our cells so we can feel and function optimally.
