The Latest in Natural Pain Relief Products and Supplements
- by Stephen Touhey
For those who deal with persistent pain, there is good news: more effective pain relief products and supplements are on the market than ever before.
There are many causes of chronic pain. Everything from poor posture to infection and disease or stress could be to blame.
Herbal medicine and homeopathy have been treating pain naturally for thousands of years. Some people opt for acupuncture, some for capsules of willow bark or turmeric, and some for manual manipulation like physical therapy or massage.
Thankfully pain research is something both the traditional and holistic health communities are always working on and we have more options for pain relief than ever before.
Here’s the latest in natural pain relief products and supplements on the market.
These patches are so close to the forefront of science that they almost seem futuristic. They contain no ingredients at all and work to relieve your pain by harnessing your body’s natural energy field.
Thanks to advances in quantum physics, scientists figured out how to bring our bodies into homeostasis (meaning healthy and balanced) by manipulating our energy on a nano scale.
While fully understanding how these little patches work would likely require a doctorate in quantum physics, the simplest explanation revolves around something your grade school teacher taught you. Everything is energy.
Since everything is energy, including you, the patches work with your energy to create the desired effect. All you need to do is place a pain relief patch over the painful area and wait for the pain to melt away.
IN-HOME INFRARED SAUNA
While the health benefits of saunas have been well-known in the holistic medicine community for a long time, it’s only been the past decade that medical research has started to catch up.
A 2015 study concluded that regular sauna use lowered the risk of heart and stroke deaths significantly. The healthiest frequency is using the sauna 4-7 times per week.
These days it’s hard for people to even have time to cook dinner after work, so making it to the sauna that many times per week might seem like a daunting task. Luckily in-home infrared saunas are on the market now and they’re available at several price points.
It’s never been easier to enjoy the health benefits of a sauna.
We have a lot more control over our bodies than most of us realize. Even bodily functions that might seem involuntary can often learn to be controlled. A great example of this type of control are the highly trained Tibetan monks who can control their body temperature using only their minds.
During a biofeedback session, a practitioner places electrical sensors on your body that provide information throughout the session. These sensors monitor things like pulse, muscle tone, brain waves, skin temperature, and more.
The practitioner monitors the sensors in order to guide you toward having more control over your body’s automatic functions, thus relieving your pain.
While not all aches and pains can be remedied this way, many different types of pain can be - especially chronic pain. Biofeedback can also be used to treat stress and a variety of other medical conditions.
