“Dr. Frank’s No Pain Spray. Thoughts?”
I actually saw the television commercials for this product before I actually saw it in stores and, to be frank, (no pun intended) I was not impressed.
The first thing I saw on the Dr. Frank’s web site was that his “no pain spray” is supposed to be homeopathic. Already we’re in trouble because, as any regular reader of my site knows, I’m not at all a fan of so-called homeopathic remedies.
The second big thing that bothers me is the list of ailments that Dr. Frank’s is supposed to treat. There’s pain from surgery and injuries, joint stiffness and “all types” of arthritis. Now, think about this for a moment. Different pains are caused by different things and I just have a hard time believing that one product can address all types of pain.
Finally, I have to question the “no side-effects” claims. Here’s a product that can “provide effective relief from” all kinds of pain but has no side effects. Doesn’t it just make sense that anything that powerful would at least have the potential for side effects?
Is Dr. Frank’s No Pain Spray A Scam?
In writing the original article, I ran across this blog, which is devoted to debunking Dr. Frank and his No Pain Spray. It’s interesting reading, to say the least.
Is Dr. Frank a genius or a scam artist? Some of the herbs in Dr. Frank’s have been studied for pain relief but only as herbal products—not as extremely dilute homeopathic remedies. So, you tell me. Is $20 for a bottle of water with a few molecules of some herbal extracts in it a scam?
