History of the Pain & Stress Center
The Pain and Stress Management Center was founded in 1979. Our goal was to offer a total multidisciplinary approach to our patients including natural alternatives to toxic drugs. We offer orthomolecular therapy, education, and research information to the public and health care practitioners. Our professional staff of nutritional consultants can assist you with a complete nutritional program as well as amino acid and food allergy counseling and testing.
In 1980, we began extensive research in neurotransmitters and brain chemistry. Our research led us to answers of mental stress, physical symptoms, and a deeper understanding of brain function. We developed a complete line of neurotransmitter support formulas. These formulas address mental as well as physical pain. Since anxiety and stress are such pervasive problems, we developed Anxiety Control® and were awarded a patent for this formula.
We have seen remarkable results with not only our patients but also thousands of others. Our research into brain biochemistry has opened up new treatments for anxiety/stress, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and hyperactivity. The Pain & Stress Center product line addresses the multitude of problems facing the American public. We continue to promote education through research and publications, and to offer natural alternatives through product development. The focus of our work is providing natural answers and helping people discover how tremendously better they can feel by putting back in the brain what naturally belongs there.
Pain & Stress Center strives to meet the needs of today's society naturally, providing premier products and high quality amino acids / vitamins and standardized herbs. We select and manufacture products with an analysis of potency and purity.
