Pain Management With Nerve Blocks and Medications

As an anesthesiologist, I have practiced pain management during my entire career. I had an active practice with nerve blocks and medications until 1997 when I began to practice pain management exclusively at my office.

Pain Treatment With Acupuncture

I learned acupuncture from my late father when I was a pharmacy student. I did not expect to practice acupuncture then. In 1980, I was asked by one of my patients to treat his intractable left shoulder pain of six years. I used acupuncture then, because the patient had tried all other modalities with no success. I have practiced acupuncture since 1981.

Public Speaking

I am hosting a weekly podcast, The Carbohydrates Can Kill Show. I have spoken at meetings on various topics that include diet and health, pain management, and acupuncture. At present, I am particularly interested in helping educate the public about how we can restore our health by proper dieting. I can help teach your meeting participants, company employees, and insurance subscribers about how diet impacts our health and disease prevention and treatment. As a result of learning from presentation, the participants can retool their dieting and save their health care dollar in the long run.  Contact me at carbohydratescankill@verizon.net for scheduling my speaking at your meeting.
