Tips for Effective Natural Alternatives to Pain Medications
Date:2/28/2013

the past 10 years.

Quoting Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP, “When they’re in pain, patients demand fast help. Unfortunately, they often aren’t aware of the damaging side-effects of their pain relief medications.” Many natural, well-researched alternatives are now available. Though these alternatives may not work as quickly, they offer fewer adverse reactions.

Dr. Moellendorf points out that the most researched alternative for pain control has been omega-3 fatty acids derived from cold water fish such as salmon. University of Pittsburgh Medical School professor of neurosurgery, Dr. Joseph Maroon, MD, specializes in the treatment of chronic degenerative spine disease. He is also the team neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers football team. Dr. Maroon reports remarkable success in treating chronic pain patients and injured football players with high does of omega-3 fatty acids.

At the 73rd meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Dr. Maroon reported on the results of 253 non-surgical candidates with chronic neck or back pain who were given high doses of omega-3 fatty acids daily. After an average of 75 days, 59% stopped taking prescription drugs for their pain, and 88% were pleased enough with their results to continue taking the omega-3 supplement. No significant adverse effects were reported in the study. Dr. Moellendorf notes that this study along with many parallel research studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids are equal to ibuprofen for reducing arthritic pain.

David Rakel, MD of the University of Wisconsin—Madison’s Integrative Medicine Program states, “Fish oil is the clean-up hitter of supplements.” For pain control, Dr. Rakel also recommends adding turmeric or ginger for more effectiveness. Patients should consult with their doctors as high doses of
