An estimated one hundred million Americans suffer from chronic pain. When pain is persistent, even daily activities like driving a car, sitting at a desk, or going to the supermarket can become daunting—or even impossible—tasks. The most common solution, prescribed painkillers, can have devastating consequences that vary from dependency to addiction, from increased pain to overdose.  In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host June Stoyer talks to Dr. Mel Pohl author of The Pain Antidote, The Proven Program to Help You Stop Suffering from Chronic Pain, Avoid Addiction to Painkillers—and Reclaim Your Life. The book guides chronic pain sufferers on a step-by-step journey to leading a healthier and more vibrant life. Mel Pohl, MD, is a board-certified family physician who specializes in treating chronic pain and co-occurring addiction. He is the medical director of the Las Vegas Recovery Center.
