In This Episode…

  • Some of the many safe and effective pain treatments doctors don't tell pain patients about 
  • How to [safely] take matters into their own hands to get lasting relief, and even permanent recovery.

Key Points

Opiods can become addictive, and when the body adapts to a set dose, it increases its tolerance and the effectiveness decreases.  Studies show that patients using opiods end of having more pain than patients with similar medical issues using alternative methods of pain relief.

People who have endured child abuse or lived in a home with abuse often suffer from brain trauma that can later show up as chronic pain.

Mindfulness meditation is a key way to calm the whole body and reduce the pain signals sent from the brain throughout the body.

What You Can Do

Combining acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen is a much more effective strategy for pain relief than opiods. Legal pain relievers such as herbs, CBD oil, hemp, kratom, ruta, are alternatives to opiods, as well as medical marijuana.  Research the brand of herb or medication you are purchasing to ensure that it has been tested for purity.

Ingredients related to marijuana such as hemp, CBD, kratom, rutha, hypericom and butterbur can help with pain relief. Other effective natural methods include acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic, nutrition, homeopathic preparations, psychotherapy, low level laser therapy, physical therapy, laughter, therapeutic touch, mindfulness meditation, visualization, EMDR and many others.

Sometimes a simple touch can have a healing effect on someone in physically suffering.

Something as simple as laughter produces endorphins that help as well. Find activities and entertainment programs that will induce laughter and joy.
