Thinking about natural pain management for acute or chronic pain, when you are deep in pain, is asking a lot. You care little about whether it is natural or not. You simply want to stop the pain. Anyhow. Regardless of the consequences.
This is understandable. Analgaesics have their place, but it is unwise to use them in the long term as they damage your liver. They, along with all medication, also suppresses your immune system, setting up further problems in the future.
So once the pain has subsided and you can think more clearly, then you need to consider your long term prospects.
Firstly, and most importantly, you don’t want the pain to recur. So you need to look for possible causes. To an untrained eye, these can be difficult to determine and the services of a natural therapist is more likely to help you on this.
Secondly, this cause needs to be fully resolved. Once the cause is taken care of, the pain will disappear. For good.
Let’s have a look at what pain is.
Pain is a symptom from your body that all is not well. Acute pain can be one of the first symptoms after an accident or injury of some kind. For example, an insect sting can be painful almost immediately. But a serious accident may be pain-free initially, because shock is the predominant symptom. Once the shock is resolved, the pain of the injury may then appear.
This shows in what order the treatment should be – shock first, then the injury and the pain.
Chronic pain is different. Rarely is pain the first symptom in a chronic illness. Other warning symptoms precede the onset of pain, symptoms which you possibly ignored.
But you can’t ignore pain.
Chronic inflammation can be painful and one of the most common causes is diet. Once this is addressed, not only does the pain disappear, but so does the inflammation.
Other sources of pain can be from a degenerative process, such as with joints, heart, etc. These can have a genetic origin or be diet related.
Any problem that appears to be familial is best treated with homeopathy. Homeopathy is a complete natural health discipline which works on your unique symptoms as well as the cause of the problem, whatever that might be.
Use homeopathy for your natural pain management and see the cause of the pain disappear.
