The jig is up!
When you complain about your pain… when you say the opioid meds aren’t working the way they used to… they’ll boost the dose and send you away, claiming more meds will lead to less pain.
They KNOW it doesn’t.
But they do it anyway, for one simple reason.
Many of today’s big corporate clinics are all about speed. Get you in, get you out, get to the next patient fast. HURRY HURRY HURRY!
Seeing MORE patients in LESS time means BIGGER profits.
But while this approach is great for the corporate balance sheet, it’s terrible for patients – especially when you’re struggling with chronic pain
So allow me to share a better plan today.
How to beat chronic pain without resorting to opioids
Finding the true cause of chronic pain isn’t easy.
It takes skill… and more importantly, it takes time. Even the best doctors won’t be able to help much if they don’t have the time – and that’s what’s being stolen from them by this system.
So they prescribe opioids for pain. And when they STILL feel pain… as is so often the case since the root problem hasn’t been found or fixed… doctors simply boost the dose.
But the new study of more than 50,000 people finds higher doses – even 20 percent higher – lead to NO meaningful change in pain levels for chronic conditions including arthritis, back pain, neck pain, nerve pain and headaches.
I’d call this a sham. But this is worse than a sham – because these are desperate patients with real pain who TRUST the system to help them.
And that system is betraying them!
They’re not only being DENIED relief. Those higher doses will also lead to a higher risk of side effects including falls, respiratory struggles, nausea, constipation, addiction and even death.
Amazingly, there often is a safe and inexpensive one-pill solution that can work wonders for patients with chronic pain – and doctors NEVER mention it!
The secret could be as simple as vitamin C.
This essential vitamin is needed for the growth and repair of body tissue as well as maintaining skin, cartilage, bones and teeth.
When you fall short, those elements can fall apart – leading to back, neck, hip and knee pain and more.
Boost the C, and your pain levels can plunge.
One study, for example, found that just 1 gram a day for two weeks eased the pain of osteoarthritis. (This is a perfectly safe dose; but if you find it makes you a little gassy split it into smaller doses spread throughout the day.)
And if you’re still struggling with pain, don’t turn to opioids.
