Unresolved pain can be successfully treated and addiction to opioids can be reversed and prevented when we respect and support the body's ability to heal itself.

Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

Lou Paradise, pain management expert and president and chief of research of Topical BioMedics, Inc. Rhinebeck, NY, is scheduled to speak at the 2013 Integrative Healthcare Symposium. The IHS takes place at The Hilton New York in Manhattan from February 27th through March 2nd. Keynote speakers include Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB; David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM; Larry Dossey, MD, Recipient of 2013 Visionary Award; and Mehmet Oz, MD, Recipient of 2013 Leadership Award.

On Thursday, February 28th from 6:30pm – 7:15pm in the Gibson Suite in the Presentation Hall, Mr. Paradise will be conducting his lecture on “Effective Prevention of Addiction to Opioid Pain Killers. “Addiction to opioid pain killers is being called the defining drug problem of the 21st century,” says Mr. Paradise, “This reality has negatively impacted millions of people and their families from every walk of life in our country. If allowed to continue it will cause far-reaching, irreparable damage to the very fabric of normal life for the average person, and undermine any hope of seeing a health and wellness platform for a sustainable healthcare model.”

Mr. Paradise’s session will explore an effective safe natural pain treatment protocol that provides a viable platform to treat the cause of pain at the cellular level versus just symptom control. “Unresolved pain--a primary reason those in pain abuse oral opioid pain killers--can be successfully treated and addiction can be reversed and prevented when we respect and support the body’s ability to heal itself,” says Mr. Paradise.    

A pain management specialist, Mr. Paradise is a decorated US Marine Corps combat veteran who frequently serves as an expert speaker on the use of natural medicines, conducts pain management seminars, and participates in addressing compliance issues related to regulated natural medicines as a member of the American Association of Homeopathic Pharmacists.

“The fact that we do not have structured protocols in place for diagnosing or treating pain as we do with other diseases is part and parcel of why people get addicted,” says Mr. Paradise. “Topricin represents a 21st century approach to pain management—reducing and/or preventing addiction, promoting healthy lifestyle—and is leading the charge for a sustainable healthcare model by addressing the causes of over medication and addiction and how pain should be looked at in the same structured protocols as diabetes, obesity, cancer, etc.”

Topical BioMedics is continuing to deepen its research into Topricin throughout 2013 in cooperation with Dr. Robert S. Gotlin, Director of Orthopedic and Sports Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center, Continuum Center for Health and Healing, New York. The study will explore Topricin’s role in treatment protocol for various muscular/skeletal and neuropathic pain issues, with the hopes of addressing opioid addiction issues while demonstrating a model for appropriate care, profitability and sustainability can exist.
