Life Choice's Kava Kava: Is It The Answer To Chronic Pain And The Prescription Painkiller Addiction That Is Currently Sweeping Across Canada And The United States?
(Calgary, AB) - A recent study suggests that 1 in 3 Americans and 1 in 5 Canadians suffer from chronic pain. Children and teenagers are not excluded. In Canada, 2% of boys and almost 6% of girls between the ages of 12 and 17 years of age report being in chronic pain. Seniors living in the community and seniors living in care homes suffer 65% and 80% respectively.
In Canada it is estimated that chronic pain costs the health care system more than 6 billion dollars. That is more than cancer, heart disease and HIV combined. Global health costs are estimated to be at least 635 billion annually.
These statistics are staggering. What is equally alarming, and some would say even more worrisome is the staggering use of prescription drugs that have been legally allowed to enter the health care system, in both countries, to fight this epidemic.Take for example the United States. It is a country that comprises 4.6% of the world’s population, but consumes 80% of the world’s opioids (legal heroin) and 99% of the world’s hydrocodone. This addiction [to painkillers] happens gradually, but the addiction and progression to stronger and potentially harmful drugs happens very quickly from; Tylenol 3 with Codeine, to Vicodin to Percocet, to the Oxycontins.
The consequences of this trend are disturbing. A recent article published on July 2, 2013 in "USA Today" focused on the dramatic increase in deaths of middle aged woman due to prescription painkillers.
One answer is KAVA.
Scientific studies have shown that KAVA is a natural remedy that can provide real relief to chronic pain. And unlike prescription painkillers (drugs) it is not addicting and has no serious side effects.

Another natural added benefit of Kava is that it helps reduce anxiety and depression. This is important because recent studies have suggested that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from these types of mental illnesses.
Dr. Eldon Dahl (ND) a naturopath physician and the owner and founder of Life Choice, understood the natural health benefits of KAVA. Under the leadership of Dr. Dahl, Life Choice pioneered the legal reintroduction of KAVA into the North American market.
