When patients are faced with chronic pain and how to manage it, they usually think of prescription or over-the-counter drugs as a solution. Little do they know that such drugs can harm a person's health as well as become addiction. Now, in this thoroughly researched, easy-to-understand guide, Carl Germano, a registered and certified clinical nutritionist and practitioner in Chineste herbology, and renowned orthopedic surgeon William Cabot, diplomat board certified by the American Board of Osteopathic Surgery and Fellow of the American Academy of Disability Evaluating Physicians, present a breakthrough in chronic pain management: nutritional and alternative therapies that bring long-term relief-without the risks associated with doctor-prescribed treatments.

In "Nature's Pain Killers", readers will learn how to:
-- Treat pain with common herbs like boswellia, devil's claw, and stinging nettle;
-- Prevent pain by adding healthy oils, spices like curcumin, and sea vegetables to your diet;
-- Keep pain from returning by using nutritional supplements like resveratrol, taxifolin, Pycnogenol, glucosamine, and chondraitin sulfate;
-- Relieve the devastating effects of pain with acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage; and much more.
