Chronic Pain Relief Straight from Nature
Chronic pain makes everything a little worse - working, exercising, making healthy choices - they’re all harder when you’re always in pain, and you just want to find some relief. The good news is that there are many pain relief solutions out there; some are pharmaceuticals, and some are natural; none will work for all, but some will work for you.
In this post, we’ll focus on the natural pain relievers you might want to try. Before we go any further though, it’s worth remembering that you should always speak with your doctor before making any changes to your pain relief strategy not least because some natural remedies can interact with pharmaceuticals! Now, onto those natural pain relievers....
Okay, so I mentioned above that it can be more difficult to exercise when you’re suffering from chronic pain, and it can be, but if you choose the right kind of exercise, for example, yoga if you have a bad back, then although it might hurt at first, you should see significant improvement if you keep at it. In fact, being in good aerobic shape is thought to help with most pain-causing conditions. So, time to start sweating!
Fish oil has anti-inflammatory qualities, and since many pain conditions are caused or exacerbated by inflammation in the body, taking a daily dose is a sure-fire way to soothe your pain and one that’s backed by science. In a recent study, researchers found that back pain sufferers who took 1200 milligrams of fish oil daily were well enough to give up their painkillers! If you’re a veggie, flaxseed oil is a good alternative as it contains the same, all-important omega-3 oils.
It’s long been known that cannabis and the oil that is derived from the plant, can help to manage pain, and as you can see from this denverweed.com kannaway review, many people are finding relief from their pain by using it. In most places, it is perfectly legal because it contains only the medicinal parts of the plant. If you haven’t tried it yet, it has to be worth a shot.
Turmeric - that yellow spice that makes Indian food taste so good - has, in many studies, like the one at http://www.arthritis.org been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which again means that taking it regularly, perhaps by cooking up more delicious curries, could help you to get some lasting relief.
Yes, really that glass of red wine you have in the evening could be doing you the world of good. Well, actually, it’s the resveratrol that’s found in red wine, and if you aren’t much of a drinker, a whole host of berries, that gives you the benefits. As well as being good at regulating pain, research suggests that resveratrol has anti-cancer properties and could help to stave off brain degeneration in older years too. That’s more than one good reason to drink up!
Try as many of these remedies as you can, and there’s a good chance you’ll see an improvement in your pain levels. Good luck!
