Dear Colleague

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to The International Virtual Conference on Nutrition, Nutraceuticals and Food Supplements in Pain Management (NFS-Pain) which will take place 20 October 2022 as a full day virtual meeting.

Nutrition plays an important role in health and disease, including pain. Nutritional interventions, nutraceuticals and food supplements are promoted not only in the prevention of pain but also as part of the multimodal comprehensive treatment of pain. Several food constituents but also spices, and herbs establish antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which can be beneficial in the management of pain.  Animal research clearly demonstrates that on a molecular level, fatty acids, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and trace elements can modulate the neurobiology of the nociceptive system, especially interfering with neuroinflammation and central nervous system sensitization. How do these findings relate to the clinic? What is the place of nutritional interventions, nutraceuticals and food supplements in the management of pain? These, and many related questions will be discussed by internationally renowned speakers.

This interdisciplinary conference will welcome all researchers, medical professionals, pain specialists, dieticians, physiotherapists, and allied healthcare professionals.

The Conference will focus on the following key areas:

  • The link between nutrition and pain
  • The link between mood, food, and pain
  • The gut brain axis and pain
  • Basic and translational research on the role of food, diets, nutraceuticals, food supplements and probiotics in pain.
  • Targeting neuroinflammation and central nervous system sensitization in chronic pain
  • Evidence based dietary interventions, nutraceuticals, and food supplements in specific pain syndromes
  • The place of dietary interventions in comprehensive pain management
  • Culinary medicine: an innovative approach linking food, health, and pain
