“There is more to pain management than just pain control.” True relief from pain is an outcome, not a pill or an injection. It is the result of doing several things right, starting from the moment a person decides to act upon the afflicting problem. However, it is not always easy to know what to do about a painful condition, and multiple barriers, such as joint disorders and painful neuromuscular conditions, can stand in the way of long-term relief and a return to a good quality of life. To make matters worse, some of these barriers are the limited action, or inaction, by affected individuals…frequently associated with lack of information.Dr. Nuchovich makes a clear case for the notion that most people living in North America are suffering from a state of chronic inflammation brought on by poor nutrition, processed foods, bad eating habits, environmental and other toxins, and genetic predisposition. He claims that most diseases, including many degenerative diseases, like arthritis, IBS, SBS, chronic back and neck pain, and even chronic rashes and outbreaks, are all caused by these factors and can all be cured. Yet, these are all conditions most people consider normal for people who are aging. As people get older, we have come to expect them to have an ever-growing list of infirmities.
Western medicine typically does not cure these infirmities because it often does not look at root causes and only treats symptoms. Nuchovich explains that most people don't realize they are literally throwing acid on their internal organs, joints, muscles, and nervous system every day. And it's this repetitive daily assault on our own bodies that leads to disease in the first place. Nuchovich claims that if people would avoid processed foods and most fast-foods, eat a more “Mediterraneanized” diet rich in omega-3s and omega-9s, use good supplements produced in the USA by certified laboratories, and consider any number of alternative therapies, most diseases can be cured.
