    What do you think about Melvin Pohl MD "The pain antidote"
    painfulgal posted:
    Hey all! I was watching PBS tonight and saw Dr. Mel Pohl. I think he is just out to make money selling his book and "system" to manage pain without RX's. If we could just think,pray and eat away our pain, dont you think everyone would be on board? I found out that he is an addiction specialist not a pain specialist and he mostly works with addicts in Las Vegas NV. I even read somewhere that he was an addict himself? I dont know. I just wanted to know if any of you have successfully tried his treatment for chronic pain and what you think in general. Thanks !
