While much has been said on the relationship between nutrition and health, caloric restriction and aging, stress and wellbeing, and what people should or should not be eating along with the role of appropriate supplementation,  new approaches help clear the confusion on the role and benefits that proper nutrition has in today’s prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness.   

“Nutrition: A Novel Approach to Pain Management” with Dr. Robert Bonakdar will address the common controversy of the nutritional factors that may exacerbate pain and present the recommended approaches that might reverse and ultimately help manage pain and its related symptoms.
