As an interventional pain physician, in addition to cutting-edge techniques I use nutritional strategies to deliver people from a cycle of pain and disability. Chronic pain may result from inflammation and metabolic disarray; it intersects every part of life and is an illness as much as it is a symptom. Obesity and aging are inflammatory processes at the root of many pain-inducing chronic diseases. I suggest anti-inflammatory, low-carb, ketogenic diets and fasting protocols to optimize patients’ health. Diet Doctor is a great resource for patients compliant with this lifestyle.
