KEARNY, NJ--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2015) - Each September, Pain Awareness Month sheds light on the nearly 100 million Americans who experience chronic pain -- a number greater than those who have been diagnosed with diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Chronic pain is problematic to treat using traditional medications and costly, with as much as $635 billion spent per year in the United States for medical treatment and lost productivity, according to the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies. Anti-inflammatory nutritional supplements such as Celadrin can help chronic pain sufferers alleviate pain with additional benefits of restoring fluids that cushion bones and joints with long-term use.

The Herbal Pharmacist, David Foreman, says this is a key benefit especially in light of a new stronger warning from the FDA that states non-aspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be linked to increased heart attacks or strokes.

"Certain prescription and over-the-counter pain drugs can actually make chronic pain worse as many medications are designed to block the transmission of pain from the site to the brain," says Foreman who started his career as a registered pharmacist with a strong belief in natural medicine and uses his expertise in physiology, pharmacology and natural medicine to educate the public on cutting edge approaches to natural health and healing. "So over time, the body's nerves send even stronger pain signals to the brain requiring stronger pain medications," he said. "It becomes a vicious cycle." 

Foreman stresses that chronic pain is complex to treat therefore a multidisciplinary approach using certain nutritional supplements is prudent.

"One of the most effective natural anti-inflammatory compounds comes from specific esterified fatty acids derived from bovine tallow oil, called Celadrin, that can be used as a topical pain reliever cream directly on the area in pain or can be taken orally," says Foreman. "Celadrin works much like the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA from omega-3 fish oils, but with more dramatic result because it causes changes at the body's cellular level; decreasing inflammation and lubricating cell membranes throughout the body, restoring fluids that cushion bones and joints to promote flexibility and mobility."

Clinical studies with Celadrin have reported significant results without any side effects ( Foreman also recommends turmeric, which has been used for centuries in both Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to help with numerous health issues including pain and inflammation; as well as magnesium that helps the muscles to relax with more recent studies showing it can calm down nerve pain too. He says magnesium is especially helpful in conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms and sleep disturbances. For more natural health tips, visit:
