New Video Reveals Scope of Problem

"Pain costs society hundreds of billions of dollars a year in the United States."

Pain costs society hundreds of billions of dollars a year in the United States. Estimates range between $560 - $635 billion annually1. To complicate the issue, annually over 100,000 people in the Unites States are hospitalized because of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug-related problems2. According to Dr. Kristy Anderson this figure leads consumers to seek natural pain relievers with fewer side effects. Dr. Anderson is the medical advisor of Bioregulatory medicine for Heel Inc., the makers of Traumeel®.

There are dozens of conventional over-the-counter (OTC) pain relief drugs like NSAIDs available on the market but some OTC pain relievers have unwanted side effects. In a newly published video Dr. Anderson recommends you look for medicines that complement a body’s natural processes to reduce joint and muscle pain without having to go through your digestive system which may put your stomach and/or liver at risk.
