Momentum: Natural Solutions Increasingly Seen as Solution to Opioid Crisis

0

The opioid epidemic is wreaking havoc—destroying lives and families—and the only true solution is through natural alternatives.

Increasingly, people are waking up to this fact.

More than 30,000 Americans each year die of opioid overdoses, half of which involve a prescription painkiller, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The crisis of opioid addiction has led naturopaths and chiropractors to seek an expanded role in the treatment of pain. Groups representing these practitioners are in the process of lobbying the White House and Congress to push the Veterans Affairs health system to hire alternative providers.

Natural medicine can indeed help with pain. CBD oil is one alternative, but as we reported recently, the feds are moving against it. You can reference our review article here on some other natural treatments for pain.
