Help Your Patients Quit Painkillers and Increase Your Income – Leverage the Power of Medical Foods!

Here’s a wild statistic: Up to 96% of patients over 65 rely on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to manage their pain. Chiropractors and physical therapists are on the front lines of reducing those numbers through treatment — but what if we told you there’s another way to help your patients quit NSAIDs? Now, there is: You can sell Medical Foods in your clinic.

 What are Medical Foods?
Medical Foods are similar to supplements, except they’re more tightly regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and may also be more effective. As the Medical Foods brand Physician Therapeutics puts it, “Encapsulated Medical Foods are designed to nutritionally manage a wide range of common medical disorders, including chronic pain, peripheral neuropathy, sleep disorders, obesity, depression, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, fatigue, and cognitive disorders.” They accomplish this by combining ingredients like vitamins, minerals, herbs, and amino acids. Each Medical Foods product (sold under names like Theramine, Trepadone, and Percura) targets different symptoms and nutritional requirements.

Do Medical Foods actually work?
Every patient is different, but Physician Therapeutics has shared some amazing results with us. For example, their products helped turn a woman named K.M.’s life around! Before she started taking Medical Foods, K.M. treated her pain, osteoporosis, and menopause symptoms with NSAIDs, Neutrotin, and Ultram.

“K.M.’s physician then recommended a low dose of Advil in combination with the Medical Food Theramine for chronic pain and inflammation and Fosteum Plus for osteoporosis and menopausal symptoms,” Physician Therapeutics told us. “After six weeks, K.M. was able to discontinue Advil and rely solely on Theramine for pain relief and Fosteum Plus to manage her hot flashes and osteoporosis.” Pretty amazing, right?

 Why sell Medical Foods?
Not only can Medical Foods help your patients, but they can also increase and stabilize your revenue stream! When a patient sees great results with Medical Foods, they’ll return to your office to restock their supply regularly. It’s a win-win for both of you.
