My adult son was prescribed opioids for a car accident.
Q. Dear Terry, “My adult son was prescribed opioids for a car accident. I fear he might become addicted to the opioids and he is still in quite a bit of pain. Are there safer options for him?” — Ashley P., Baltimore, MD
A. Dear Ashley, The opioid epidemic in this country is incredibly unfortunate because there are safer options to treat pain. I highly encourage your son to discuss any supplementation with his healthcare practitioner because they may have additional insight.
To control your son’s pain, I recommend a combination of highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, DLPA, and nattokinase. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to help get your son comfortable as quickly as possible. I would have him take these four ingredients three times daily.
Additionally, your son may benefit from liver support as opioids are primarily detoxified by the liver. To naturally support the liver, I suggest a combination of milk thistle phytosome standardized to high levels of silymarin, sesamin (from sesame seeds), French grape seed extract, and curcumin. These ingredients help to protect and restore the liver, which is one of the hardest working organs in our body.
