Reza Ghorbani, MD, ABIPP, FIPP is the creator of Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief and founder/CEO of Truceuticals® Inc.
His journey began abroad, where he grew up amid a family of physicians and pharmacists. His father, a doctor of pharmacology and head of a hospital burn unit pharmacy, worked daily to provide people suffering every type of pain with the right medications. But as much good as his father did, he often remembered him as frustrated. His father found that while some drugs worked well to alleviate pain for some patients, the same drug could cause harmful side effects—and often prolonged or intensified pain—for others.
He knew then that he wanted to become a doctor at a very young age. At 17 years old, his parents bought him a one-way ticket from Tehran to America so that he could obtain the education he needed, safely away from the turmoil in his homeland. Although he did not see his parents for another 9 years, he thrived in America, working two jobs to put himself through college and then through medical school.

Research & Development of Noxicare
Dr. Ghorbani's extensive research began during his medical education at Tufts. Here, he co-authored numerous important scientific papers about inflammation published in respected medical journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and the European Journal of Immunology, among others.
His quest to find a natural pain management alternative sparked a discovery that lead outside the traditional pain management box to the proprietary formulation of 7 of the world's most potent natural pain relievers: turmeric, willow bark, ginger, holy basil, rosemary extract, alpha lipoic acids and boswellia extract.
Dr. Ghorbani chose each centuries-old ingredient not only because of its proven singular effectiveness for different types of pain, but understanding that each ingredient served as a catalyst to the other ingredients to boost the effectiveness of the formulation as a whole.
The resulting US patent-pending Noxicare™ formula is a safe first-line pain management remedy which can be used in conjunction with a traditional pain management program.
"Noxicare™ makes a real difference in my patients' lives,
and I'm proud to share this discovery with the world."
