Natural Pain Relief Remedy a little background:
Chronic pain, along with news of terminal illness, is perhaps peoples greatest fear.
In my decades of dealing with suffering people, there is nothing more debilitating than chronic pain. Chronic pain literally saps the zest for life right out of peopleand makes many more wish for death?
So I approach this subject of chronic pain with the utmost humility? knowing full well that if you are reading this, you are either suffering from debilitating painor you are close to someone who is? fools rush ahead? where angels fear to tread?
This report addresses the fundamental difference between healing and treatment. Treatment is the application of drugs or surgery to stop an illness or its symptoms. The moment the treatment stops, then cessation of symptoms returns. The root cause was never addressed. Ask anyone how much Vioxx cured them?
Healing, on the handing, demands a much more rigorous focus than a few minutes in the doctors office can achieve. Dont blame doctors? they are surviving day to day the best way they know how. They were taught in medical school to relieve symptoms, not find root causes. They only do, what they were taught to do. Deal with symptoms? if symptoms go away (even temporarily) then the patient is happyright? Wrong? even if NSAIDS, or aspirin, blunt chronic painwhat happens to the rest of the patients body? It is no accident that chronic pain sufferers have much higher rates of cancer and heart diseasethe link between inflammation and the development of disease is irrefutable?
Pain is an epidemic? affecting millions of people worldwide. Over $10 billion dollars is spent annually on OTC pain medications. One in three Americans is living with chronic pain and it is the single greatest cause of lost time at work and reduced economic productivity.
The pain I am speaking of is not acute, go away in a little while?pain. The kind that happens when you sprain an ankle, or burn your finger. No? I am talking about chronic pain that began off and on, and now appears to be here to stay. This is the most dangerous form of pain, not only because of the effects upon the persons mood and overall perception of life but because of the way it sets the body on a path to develop even more serious disease and premature death. So yes?I take the subject of pain very seriously?
To begin the process of understanding the origins of pain, we must first understand the role of inflammation in creating pain.
