In this video I show you a variety of holistic treatment modalities that I use a Mittag Holistic Chiropractic. Having given you an impression of the types of treatments I use, I’d like to tell you a little bit more about what I’m trying to accomplish with these treatments.

Many people have become accustomed to chronic pain. If fact we often minimize the amount of pain that we are experiencing on a day to day basis.

We seem to have adopted the belief that you’ve just got to live with it, that there is nothing that can be done. Or we have become reliant on the NSAID drugs. While NSAIDs are okay to take once in a while for a day or so, they should not be used on a regular basis. Just read the label.

Taking NSAIDs like ibuprofen and naproxen increases your risk of ulcers, kidney problems and many other health problems. Why risk it?

In an effort to help patients get long term pain relief without having to rely on NSAIDs or any other prescriptive pain killers, I have developed what I call the Pain Eraser Program.

One of the best kept secrets for relief of pain and no doubt the safest is pharmaceutical grade fish oil.

Fish oil is rich in omega 3 fatty acids. These fats are in the same classification as vitamins in that they are required by the body to function correctly, but just like vitamins our body cannot make them on its own. Our body has to get them in our diet.

How does fish oil relieve joint pain?

Omega 3 rich fish oil fuels the body’s production of it’s own inherent anti-inflammatory substances. Most Americans and most Westerners for that matter are severely deficient in omega 3 fats. This deficiency limits our body’s production of on board anti-inflammatory molecules. As a result our bodies’ are unable to control and suppress the inflammation that causes joint pain.

By restoring normal levels of omega 3 fats in our tissues our body is able to make sufficient quantities of anti-inflammatory chemicals to suppress inflammation and the pain associated with it.

Dr. Joseph Maroon — Speaking Out For The Benefits of Fish Oil

Dr. Joseph Maroon is a neurosurgeon who suffered significant knee pain after running marathons. He took so much ibuprofen that he got an ulcer. His medical colleagues diagnosed osteoarthritis of the knee and suggested that he get a knee replacement. Instead, Dr. Maroon decided to research alternative remedies and found fish oil.

After taking pharmaceutical grade fish oil for two months Dr. Maroon’s knee pain had resolved and his ulcer was healed. He went on to test the use of pharmaceutical grade fish oil in his clinical practice. He found that 60% of his patients were able to get off of all pain meds and use fish oil solely in their place. A number of his patients were able to avoid surgery by taking fish oil.
