What Is Natural Pain Releif?

Sep 17, 2008
We all experience pain for a reason but on many occasions it is a warning for us to discontinue something we are doing. Anything can trigger pain from a headache to a broken bone but the pain gives us an indication of where and what the problem is. However, there are occasions where even though we know where the pain is coming from we have trouble stopping it.

This is called 'chronic' pain and is distinguishable from 'acute' pain by its persistence and common examples of chronic pain include backaches, migraine headaches, and arthritis. Although an extremely common condition, chronic pain has no cure and there is no way to prevent a situation occurring where chronic pain will not happen. It is also true that quite often the root cause of the pain is actually treated but faulty nerve connections believe the condition still exists and create pain signals, which eventually become the condition and not the result of it.

The problem with prescription medication is that it is easy to become dependent and as time progresses the drugs become less effective but the dependence remains; or there are serious side effects to be considered and many are now turning towards natural pain relief treatments as long term alternatives. One very old practice providing natural pain relief is acupuncture, which many people who suffer with chronic illness tend to favor. Originating in China, acupuncture involves piercing the skin with thin needles on specific points of the body.

Many people swear by its effectiveness claiming it can help with migraine, depression, arthritis and of course back pain. The use of herbal remedies must not be discounted either as natural pain relief treatments plus they do not indicated side effects common with other types of pain killers. There are usually several herbal treatments used in natural pain relief for a particular conditions; popular herbal remedies include Emu oil, which can alleviate the pain of arthritis, and good old Vitamin E, which helps minimize scarring.

Although they take longer to build up sufficiently in the system to provide any pain relief the greatest benefit is that everything that enters the system is perfectly natural and will not harm it. Although it may sound like well-worn advice, perhaps the best advice is to avoid the need for natural pain relief is to take care of yourself by getting proper nutrition and eating fewer processed foods but increasing fruit, vegetable, and whole grain consumption. Also Sleep is essential to good health just as much as regular exercise is, even if it is only walking every day and using stairs rather than the elevator.
