Chronic pain is said to be the most costly health problem in North America, with annual costs exceeding $100 billion including direct medical expenses, lost income, lost productivity, compensation payments and legal charges.
Chronic pain affects the ability of a person to put in a full day’s work or affects career advancement.
Among the more common pain conditions are migraine, back pain and fibromyalgia, and while there are a number of pharmaceutical and over-the-counter pain medications, there seems to be a point where modern medicine has nothing more to offer a person to help with their ongoing suffering.
Increasingly, consumers are turning to complementary and alternative medicine such as homeopathy.
Homeopathy helps patients by making their systems less susceptible to pain. Läs mer
