Better Than Turmeric for
Pain & Inflammation?
Clinical trials reveal a powerful new
inflammation fighter with an incredible 90% effectiveness rate for pain relief
By Dr. Kevin Passero
If you’ve ever suffered from frequent back or knee pain—or ongoing inflammation anywhere in your body—you can probably relate to the many patients who come into my clinic seeking a natural way to feel better.
Their ask is simple: My patients want something they can take daily to address the root cause of their pain with no side effects or long-term health consequences. Most importantly, they want something that works.
Hello, I’m Dr. Kevin Passero.
In the 20+ years I’ve been running my clinics in the Washington, DC area, I’ve helped hundreds of people reduce their pain and ease the ongoing inflammation that often underlies it. During this time, I’ve certainly learned a thing or two about what works—and what doesn’t.
Why I Recently Changed the Way I Treat My Pain Patients
You might be familiar with turmeric, the bright yellow spice commonly found in curry powder that has long been used as an herb in Ayurvedic Medicine.
Located deep within the roots of the turmeric plant are potent compounds called curcuminoids (which are made up of three components, with curcumin being one of the best known). These powerful antioxidants and inflammation-fighters are what give turmeric extract many of its healing powers. That’s why it has been a key component of my pain relief protocol for years.
However, this all changed when I uncovered a powerful, cutting-edge nutrient which is emerging from research as a breakthrough pain and inflammation fighter that provides benefits way beyond what turmeric alone can. This discovery forced me to revise what I recommend to my patients.
Please keep reading, because the results my patients are getting with my new pain relief protocol are simply stunning, and I want to share it with as many who can benefit as possible.
How One “Problem” Patient Made Me
Rethink My Approach to Natural Pain Relief
Overall, I was very satisfied with the success rate I achieved with my patients using turmeric, and if you follow the science like I do, this should come as no surprise.
Key studies have shown that curcuminoids found in turmeric block inflammatory pathways, reduce levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, neutralize inflammation-causing free radicals, and relieve pain and stiffness as effectively as other popular doctor-recommended options—all without side effects.****
But a few years ago, I had one “problem” patient who wasn’t getting the relief he needed from turmeric alone. That patient happened to be my dad.
He had been suffering from painful joints in his hands from decades spent as a surgeon, and while the turmeric he was taking helped some, it wasn’t enough.
So I poured through countless scientific studies to learn about other natural options and came across data on a cutting-edge nutrient making waves in Europe. The research behind it was rock-solid, and the number of scientists and doctors raving about it was hard to ignore.
The cutting-edge nutrient I uncovered is a little-known fatty acid called Palmitoylethanolamide. It’s quite a mouthful I know, which is why it’s called PEA for short.
I started my dad on a revised protocol that included PEA and turmeric extract as well as another powerful antioxidant and natural pain reliever from Ayurvedic Medicine called boswellia. I added this additional extract because studies show that when turmeric and boswellia are combined, turmeric’s benefits are amplified by nearly 50%!*
The results were nothing short of a miracle.
Within weeks, he started to notice amazing improvements. Within months, his hands were almost as good as new. It was as if we had turned back the clock. He couldn’t believe it, and of course, it felt great to help my own father.
I began to apply this new, remarkably effective triple-action protocol with more of my patients, and they had similar results. I was thrilled, and of course, they were too.
What Exactly Is PEA and Why Does It Work So Well?
PEA is essentially your body’s built-in, natural painkiller.
How exactly does it work? Well, new research published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences shows that PEA helps neutralize COX-2, iNOS and TNFα, the notorious trio of factors associated with inflammation and pain.*
When inflammation strikes, your body synthesizes PEA on demand and releases it right at the source to help relieve pain.* The big problem is that your body’s PEA production can rapidly decline as you age or with persistent injury or pain. The timing of this couldn’t be worse because this is when you need PEA the most!
So what are your options if you want to shore up your levels of PEA?
Since there are only trace amounts of PEA found in food, a PEA dietary supplement is your best bet (see my buyer’s guide below).
Yet for years, supplementing with PEA was virtually unknown in the United States. But thanks to European researchers (who are generally far more advanced when it comes to natural remedies), we now know that taking a PEA supplement may be the most effective natural painkiller on the planet.
The data speaks for itself:
✓ Lower Back Pain Relief for 9 out of 10 People: In an Italian trial, 90% of those taking 600 mg of PEA daily reported “good or excellent” effectiveness at providing greater lower-back comfort after three weeks of usage.*
✓ Knee Comfort Improved Quickly: In a study published in the journal Inflammopharmacology, people who were given 600 mg of PEA reported a “significant reduction” in pain scores in just eight weeks versus a placebo.*
✓ Aches Relieved All Over the Body: In a hospital study, patients with widespread aches and pains received 600 mg of PEA. Of those, a full 88% reported “significant” score improvements for comfort and quality of life.*
As amazing as these results are, perhaps the most convincing data is contained within a landmark study published in the prestigious journal Pain Medicine.
What a Landmark Study Revealed Is Changing the World
of Natural Pain Management
This ground-breaking study took place at the University of Rome and involved 610 patients with persistent pain. Most had suffered for six months or more—and many had suffered for years.
Participants were accepted into this study no matter what the source of their problem: joint issues… nerve-related problems… back problems… headaches… surgery after-effects… skin issues… and persistent aches and pains triggered by all kinds of conditions.
They all shared a common bond: Whatever they had tried to alleviate their pain—and collectively, they had tried just about everything—nothing worked.
Nothing until they were given PEA.
By the end of the study, PEA significantly decreased the pain (both in severity and intensity) for those taking it. And just as important, it worked no matter the source of their pain.*
Here Is the Exact Pain and Inflammation Relief Protocol
I Recommend to My Patients
Earlier I mentioned that turmeric extract is a key component of the protocol I use to help my patients get relief from pain and inflammation.
I also mentioned that I include boswellia extract because studies show that it helps to amplify turmeric’s benefits by nearly 50%!
And now, I unequivocally recommend that my patients also take PEA because the data on its efficacy is nothing short of astounding, and since it has a different mechanism of action than turmeric and boswellia, it’s best to take all three of them together for maximum benefits.
I call this my Triple-Action Protocol, and it works so well for my patients that I want to share the dosages and forms I recommend.
Consider this your free buyer’s guide for these supplements:
1. PEA: Lots of companies cut corners by offering only 100-300 mg of PEA. The research clearly shows you need a 600 mg dose for maximum benefits. Also, try to get the ultra-micronized form, which provides the best absorption.
2. Turmeric Extract: I recommend a minimum of 500 mg and make sure it is standardized to at least 75% curcuminoids, the compounds behind turmeric’s health benefits. Many supplements are standardized to only 25% if at all.
3. Boswellia Extract: I recommend a minimum of 250 mg, but make sure it’s a standardized extract. The active constituents of this herb are called boswellic acids, and you need concentrated amounts of these acids to get the benefits.
A Superior Pain and Inflammation Solution With Results You Can Feel in Just 3 Weeks
I firmly believe that the Triple-Action Protocol I developed for my patients (my dad being one of them!) is truly the safest, most effective natural way to get your pain and inflammation under control. And most importantly, to improve your mobility, flexibility and overall quality of life.
While most of my patients were achieving incredible success with my protocol, I quickly realized that it was hard for many of them to follow it, because the specific supplements it calls for aren’t always easy to find.
They found that it was difficult to find a high-quality PEA supplement at the proper dose and in the ultra-micronized form I recommend.
They also found it hard to find the potent, standardized turmeric extract I insist upon. I get it. Turmeric has become so popular that the market has become flooded with junk.
On top of that, my patients had to take boswellia extract separately to enhance the benefits of turmeric–so they ended up taking a lot of pills each day.
This combined protocol often became too expensive and inconvenient for some of my patients, and I knew there had to be a better solution.
Fortunately, I had the opportunity to create one. That’s because in addition to running my clinics, I also serve as Chief Science Officer for Durable™, a cutting-edge dietary supplement company that I co-founded with my good friend (and patient) Josh Corn, who has been a leading natural health advocate for over 20 years.
Together we created a new, convenient and affordable all-in-one solution based on the protocol I developed for my patients. We call it Durable BODY™.
