PAIN AND INFLAMMATION - CHRONIC: Nutritional Support Protocol

submitted by: admin on 03/24/2023


Few of us are free of chronic pain and inflammation. We tend to rely on pharmaceutical drugs to relieve our symptoms, but this does little in the long run, and inhibits the healing process in the short term. Lifestyle medicine is the key to resolving inflammation and pain. Dr. Saputo recommends the lifestyle, dietary, and supplements listed below to support the body's natural and innate healing process. 

Dr. Saputo recommends the supplements listed below as considerations for treatment for Pain and Inflammation.

Lifestyle Recommendations:


1.  Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen and acetomenophen if possible to avoid interference with healing.


2.  Avoid alcohol consumption and smoking.


3.  Relax and avoid stress.
