1452

Chronic pain related to inflammation, arthritis, fibromyalgia, stress and injury plays a significant role in radically diminishing health and high quality of life. Fortunately, there are natural methods of pain management which do not need prescriptions or the risks of over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen and aspirin. Several studies, like those recently released by Reutersstudies have shown that aspirin was shown to be equally toxic as the prescription drug Vioxx that was pulled from the marketplace for being potentially harmful. As we get older, production of these antioxidants begins to slowly decrease year after year. But with a few simple dietary and lifestyle changes, your bodies natural pain management defenses can be encouraged, and revived.

4 Easy Approaches for Managing Pain

Massage

A brief massage is so capable of releasing dopamine and endorphins - the human body's natural pain killers - that it's now used frequently in hospitals to lower the stress levels of post-secondary patients and speed up the recovery procedure. Whether suffering from stress, fibromyalgia, tension headaches, back pain or pain, massages can assist with pain relief by fixing inflammation at a cellular level.

Yoga

Millions of individuals around the world exercise the ancient mind-body technique of intricate stretching poses, not simply because it's a gentle way to build lean muscles, but also because it decreases the stress hormone cortisol in the body and promotes peace-of-mind. Studies released in the professional journal Spine show practicing two times each week for two weeks may significantly reduce back pain, arthritis and migraines.

Hypnotherapy

Pain associated with previous traumas - whether psychological, emotional, or physical - may significantly impact quality of life. These methods are proving so successful at relieving lower back pain, nervousness, and stress headaches which it is currently being recommended as part of treatment programs by the American Pain Society and American College of Physicians both.

Herbal Supplements

Simple dietary changes such as the inclusion of a couple tablespoons of ginger and garlic into a breakfast smoothie can be as effective as over-the-counter pain killers in reducing inflammation and the pain associated with gout. Though many studies reveal a diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, fruits and dark, leafy greens, pure cbd oil helps alleviate several chronic conditions, it is always smart to speak to a physician before relying upon dietary supplements alone to manage pain.

Stress and Pain

Chronic anxiety from the daily responsibilities of a stressful work environment, hectic schedule, and overwhelming bills generates an overload of this stress hormone, cortisol, in the entire body. As cortisol accumulates in your system it is going to result in redness and pain. Reducing stress with natural techniques like herbal supplements, massage, hypnosis and yoga is a great technique of pain management with no medication.

Scout Guarino
