Chronic pain is a big problem in our society. In this video, Dr. Andrew Rubman, naturopathic physician and author of Bottom Line’s “Nature Doc’s Patient Diary” blog, discusses natural treatments for chronic pain that are effective, safe and not addictive. Curcumin and bromelain have both been found to control pain and inflammation. Neprinol, a supplement that uses systemic enzymes to block inflammation, is used broadly for pain.
