By Dr. David Jockers(NaturalNews) Chronic pain is a modern day epidemic that affects more than 70 million Americans. It has been estimated to cost the economy more than $100 billion per year. Individuals with chronic pain can have very fulfilling lives if they have a plan to address the major stressors that lead to chronic pain.Most people are looking for a quick drug or supplement to take to reduce pain. Although such drugs and supplements exist they fail to go upstream to the underlying causes behind chronic pain syndromes. Identifying the causative factors and minimizing their existence in someone's life is the greatest breakthrough.
