Pain Anywhere In The Body
Are you experiencing chronic pain? If so, you’re not alone. According to a recent Gallup poll 89% of adult Americans had “some sort of pain”. 42% Experienced it’s effects daily and 27% missed work as a result. The report also found that 39% would not take medication due to the side effects.
The back, neck, head and musculoskeletal area (muscles, bones and joints related to the spine) are the most common locations of pain.
The most popular treatment is to take analgesics such as Ibuprofin, Paracetamol, and Codeine. There can be serious consequences with this approach however because:
1. Analgesics fail to address the cause of the problem so there is no permanent solution.
2. There are side effects that can be worse than the actual problem.
For example, chronic migraine headaches are 20x more likely to occur in people taking analgesics on a daily basis for more than 6 months. Another common side effect, gastric irritation, can lead to painful ulcers.
Natural Treatment For Pain
Acupuncture is extremely effective at alleviating pain for chronic sufferers. Scientists say the needles may release endorphins, the pleasure-inducing, painkilling chemicals that flood the brain and numb pain signals. Similarly, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the release of natural pain-suppressing Opioids in the brain. Studies have shown that regular long-term sessions cause chronic episodes to become less frequent and intense over time. Acute pain that is dealt with straight away can be alleviated in just a few sessions. Chinese Analgesic herbs also help to move stagnant Qi and Blood (seen as the cause of pain in Chinese medicine).
Chinese Medicine is a completely natural and effective solution that results in lasting relief without dangerous side effects.
