Most people in pain don’t want to read a lot of fancy words – they just want to feel better. Most people in pain are already taking several drugs which may not be working so well. The drugs can have bad side effects. Many people in pain have had injections or surgeries that helped for a little while, and then they didn’t help any more. The pain came back.
The therapies we talked about on the Dr. Oz Show are just one option for people in pain — one good but slightly pricy option for people in pain. But there are many others.
Most people in pain just get drugs, shots and surgeries, because that’s what our insurance system pays for. These can be good options for some people, but if we docs were doing such a good job with pain, why would there be 116 million Americans – more than 1 in 3 people – in chronic pain?
Your doctors, even your pain specialist, most likely do not know what more can be done for you. But after 25 years as an acupuncturist, chiropractor, mind/body teacher, nutritional expert, pain specialist, and Ivy-League medical school professor, I may have a few helpful ideas for you.
And I’m not selling any pills or gadgets on this site. This is my life’s work. Take a look around. If worst comes to worst, you can always come see me in New York City for a consultation.
Here’s wishing you relief.

Sure. Unfortunately, I am not just a “magnetic therapist.” I do not sell or rent any devices, as I state in the opening paragraphs on this web site. The Dr. Oz Show has a web page on the devices presented, and perhaps you can contact the manufacturers to learn more. Most of my patients buy these devices, and then resell them on eBay if they are not completely satisfied.
How about alternative therapy? can you give me a brief explanation about this? I heard to my friend that I can be a best way to try.
Sure. Please read some of the articles on the left side of the home page. I hope that will answer some of your questions –
my son monte, age 49, has suffered post surgical [triple bypass] chronic pain syndrome [costochondral] intensity 8/9, unrelenting, for 5 yrs. he has not responded to local injection, analgesics, removal of wire sutures, acupuncture, lyrica, cbt, various electrical modalities and 3 yrs ago was taken off everything by mayo pain rehab. he has given up on medical and alternate therapies, and needs to be offered another approach, but needs to be convinced there is something worth trying. can you suggest something? sincerely, murray kuhr , md, mph. faap
Yes, Dr. Kuhr, I have managed patients like this before. But it is impossible to make specific recommendations over the Internet, and with so little information. That’s why we see patients in the office, and take the time to ask many questions, examine the patient carefully, and unravel the whole story. That is the only way that good work can be done. It is painstaking, and one must be thorough. I am available in my Manhattan office, sorry.
I have treated a number of post-surgical cases like this, some sent to me from Dr. Mehmet Oz. I do have a lot of ideas about this, but I can’t really give specific medical advice over the Internet. It is unethical and potentially dangerous. Please call my office at 212.265.4038, and we can discuss this. All the best, James
I am actually grateful to the holder of this website who has
shared this fantastic post at at this place.
This is the right site for anyone who wishes to find out about this
topic. You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa).
You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been written about for a long
time. Great stuff, just excellent!
Please tell me if you have any experience with mold exposure, I am at the end of my rope along with 2 other x Co workers, our building was in the basement and all 3 of us got very ill and still have symptoms, the building got an air test and had very high levels of mold it was closed down for 12 weeks for mold remediation only to have mold grow back a year later. However I live in Pennsylvania and we cannot find anybody around here that will give us any answers or help basically just shifted from one doctor to another
Yes, I do. Please call me at 212.265.4038. This cannot be done over the Internet. — James
