5 Ways to Complement Your Chronic Pain Relief Naturally

Chronic pain can bring a person to their knees, and the worst part is that it doesn’t end. There may be temporary reprieves, but the chronic part of the equation means that the pain isn’t really going anywhere.
So it’s no wonder so many people have struggled with side effects from prescription painkillers. But there’s some good news here. Prescription medications aren’t the only answer. There are ways to complement your chronic pain relief protocol naturally. In fact, there are at least five and we’re going to cover them here.
Before we dive in, it’s critical to note that you should consult a medical professional before making any significant changes to your health and wellness routine, especially pertaining to altering use of prescription medications.

1. CBD

Short for cannabidiol, CBD is one of many compounds in cannabis. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD doesn’t interact with the CB1 receptor, producing the intoxicating feeling of being “high”. But both CBD and THC work on the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays many roles in bodily processes like appetite, pain and memory.
A 2018 meta-analysis review assessed CBD’s ability to relieve symptoms of chronic pain by looking at studies that were conducted between 1975 and March 2018. Researchers concluded that CBD is effective in pain management for cancer and neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia. And the best news is that were unable to identify negative side effects to CBD use.  
CBD is widely researched for pain related to cancer and arthritis. In fact, the Arthritis Foundation estimated in 2019 that 29 percent of people with arthritis used CBD for treatment. And some researchers are beginning to study CBD’s effect on chronic pain related to other conditions, such as migraines.
And while research is still mounting on the subject, many people are finding relief from chronic pain using CBD oil alternative with little to no side effects.

2. Meditation

Tell someone with chronic pain that they could “mind over matter” their pain away and they’ll either laugh you out of the room or flip you off, there’s no in-between.
But as it turns out, there may be some truth in this mind over matter thing. And there’s scientific proof to back it up.
A mounting body of research tells us with increasing certainty that mental processes actually can alter sensory phenomena, and that includes pain.
In the past decade, researchers have extensively studied meditation’s effects on things like attention span, body awareness, post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction. But possibly the most exciting research is in the field of chronic pain.
Before we get ahead of the research, this is a good time to note that mediation will never cure pain. The best it can do is alter the way your body perceives the pain. And as it turns out, that may be life-changing.
A Wake Forest University study performed MRI scans of 15 healthy volunteers while inducing pain. In the four days that followed, subjects learned mindfulness meditation. And on the fifth day, they had MRIs again. This time, participants had two MRIs. Pain was induced in both sessions, but one was while meditating and the other was not. 
The study showed about a 40 percent reduction in pain intensity during meditation versus non-meditation.
One of the most interesting things about this study is that participants were beginners at meditation and only learned and practiced meditation for four days before the MRI evaluation.
So this debunks the idea that you have to be a Buddhist monk or a yogi to see the effects of meditation. As it turns out, you can do it right now to start relieving your pain.

3. Kratom

Kratom, an extract of the Mitragyna Speciosa plant, is an herbal supplement that is gaining popularity as of late for its ability to treat chronic pain. It’s also used to help wean people off of opioids because it has similar effects in the brain and body to opioid pain relievers, and it doesn’t seem to have the same adverse side effects. 
A study conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) found that kratom doesn’t seem to have the addictive side effects that opioid pain relievers are famous for. Still, kratom is currently illegal in six states, and several cities and counties banned sales with local ordinances. 
Researchers surveyed 2,800 kratom users and found that over 91 percent of them endorsed kratom for pain relief, and 40 percent said they took kratom to treat opioid withdrawal. Two-thirds of participants said they would recommend kratom for treating anxiety and depression.

4. Physical Therapy

Like so many people suffering from chronic pain, you may have given up on physical therapy. But you should know that moment-based therapies like physical therapy produce cumulative effects, meaning that they become more effective the more they’re practiced. 
Physical therapy for pain relief is based on the holistic view that all bodily forces affect one another. All nerves and blood vessels travel through muscle and fascia tissue, so nerve pain or damage is often as a result of muscle or fascia compression. As you work to restore coordination, strength and flexibility, you can improve your mobility and reduce pain.

5. Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries to relieve pain and treat many other conditions. This healing modality has gained popularity in Western cultures for pain relief, and it has been studied quite extensively.
Even though we are talking about tiny needles being inserted into your skin, acupuncture is generally considered very safe. 
Studies have been mixed on the results, but if you’re suffering from chronic pain, it may be worth a shot. Many people swear by acupuncture for pain, and you may end up being one of them. As a bonus, acupuncture is now covered by many of the large insurance companies, so there isn’t much to lose by trying it.
If you’re suffering from chronic pain, know that there is hope. And that hope doesn’t have to involve a doctor’s prescription pad. Experiment with natural ways to complement your chronic pain relief to see what works for you.

I take vitamins and use natural ways to regulate my hormones levels since I do have POCS. I know longer have cysts but I do have the other issues as in insulin resistance, over weight, and irregular hormone levels. Again I'm not a doctor so make sure you always consult with your doctor before doing anything. I'm just sharing some things I do that has helped me greatly! I'm a texture person I just add this to my scrambled eggs. This does have a salty sea taste since it is from the ocean. I know people who purchase the actual algae and soak in hot water to drink as a tea. I purchased my sea moss gel from a legit herbal person who also can mix whatever other vitamins or herb in your batch. Tumeric When using this try to get organic in the powder form. My mom even used this for inflammation. When ingesting this make sure to add Black pepper to activate this. Basically, no use taking this if you don't add the Black pepper. The Black pepper allows our body to absorb the tumeric. I just sprinkle on food. It does stain so be careful. I use these both to regulate my hormones and this stuff is golden! I do not have the issues I had with my POCS once I changed to taking these two together. I actual purchased these in liquid form recently and love it. However, you can purchase the maca in powder form and both in supplement form.
How Smoking Ruins Your Skin and Hair
If there only one lifestyle change that you will make to look younger, quit smoking. Smoking affects your skin and hair in many negative ways. Read on to find out how... How Smoking Damages your Skin and Hair When you smoke, the nicotine in the tobacco reduces the amount of blood that is flowing to your skin. The toxins also affect collagen and elastin production, which in turn affect the elasticity of your skin. This makes the skin sag and droop, giving you an aged appearance. Tobacco smoke contains 4000 other chemicals besides nicotine. And most of them trigger the break down of collagen and elastin. These are the fibers that give your skin its supple and glowing appearance. Smoking or even being around a friend or partner who smokes destroys the building blocks of your skin. Apart from your facial skin your lips also become darker in colour. This lip hyperpigmentation is also called as 'smoker's lips'. It can begin immediately after you start smoking cigarettes or other tobacco products. Smoking damages DNA, which can also affects your hair follicles.

What You can do to Reverse the Damage Your skin recovers its elasticity when you stop smoking. It will also be smoother, making it more pleasant to look at and touch. Your skin complexion will become visibly brighter in the first few weeks after you stop smoking. After six months, your skin will regain its original vitality. Start an antioxidant supplement that contains N-acetyl cysteine, glycine, glutamine, vitamin C, vitamin E, resveratrol and astaxanthin. Antioxidants are free radical scavangers that reduce the oxidative stress caused by smoking. Start using retinol in your nightly skin care routine. Retinol is a powerful antioxidant and it boosts collagen repair. It is one of the holy grail ingredient when it comes to skin tightening and anti aging treatment. Explore cyclical vitamin therapy to control hair loss and boost hair re-growth. Cyclical vitamin therapy contains as many as 100 ingredients which are needed for healthy hair and treatment of hairloss.

Hence, these products become a necessity to have in your daily routine to stay fresh and safe. 1. Sunscreens This is a very important and basic must-have for summer for every girl, no matter what skin type or tone you have. Sunscreens protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Not only that, the major benefit that you’re going to get from sunscreen is that your skin will be protected from Skin cancer. Even if you are staying home these days, don’t miss out on applying sunscreen as it protects our skin from the blue rays radiated through our mobile phones, laptops, and TV screens. Otherwise, they can cause major damage to our skin. 2. Rosewater Spray Our skin feels tired and fatigued really soon in summers. And it is really annoying and irritating to wash our face, again and again, to feel refreshed. Instead, you can keep rosewater spray with you all the time to refresh your skin instantly. It makes your skin feel relaxed and calm and really cools down the internal heat. 3. Antiperspirants During summers, we tend to sweat a lot. To control your sweat, you can use antiperspirant in your armpits. They prevent sweating. Antiperspirants are very different from deodorants. Deodorants make you get rid of the odor while antiperspirants control your sweating. You can buy amazing quality antiperspirants, which are clinically protected from sites like eBay. 4. Aloe Vera Gel You can use aloe vera gel as a lubricant all over your face whenever you shave your face. It acts great as a lubricant. Also, it is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. This soothes and calms your skin to a great extent. Aloe vera gel can also be used as a part of post skincare regime. It can be applied post-shaving your hands and legs and it will make sure that your cuts won’t turn into an infection if any. 5. Anti-Fungal Powder You can use this whenever your skin has any sort of itching, skin irritation, redness, fungal infection, or any pricky heat issue. You can use this under your arms, on your back, on your neck, between your thighs, on your elbows, knees, and all the areas where you feel excessive sweat. I would suggest you apply this powder between your thighs before the workout to prevent itching, redness, and irritation. 6. Setting Spray Whenever you apply make-up in summer, do not forget to apply the setting spray. It makes the make-up last longer on your face and makes it settle properly. You can even dance at weddings in summer and don’t lose your make-up at all if you have applied the setting spray. Make sure you invest in a good quality setting spray. So, these are some must-have recommended products for all the sweaty girls out there. I’m sure that these products will make your life much easier. So, get them for yourselves!

전라남도에 위치한 담양에 다녀왔다. 매년 5월 초면 이곳에서 대나무축제를 개최하는데 대나무 장난감을 무료로 체험해 볼 수 있고 죽제품 구매도 가능하다. 이 곳은 죽녹원의 산책로인데, 대나무의 음이온으로 입구에 들어서자마자 곧바로 시원함을 느낄 수 있다. 산책 후에 맛보는 댓잎 아이스크림이 꿀 맛이다. 내가 먹은 것은 2천원이고 가게 별로 약간의 차이가 있다. 점심 식자를 하기 위해 '대사랑'이라는 식당을 찾았다. 이 식당은 한정식이 깔끔하게 잘 나오는 곳으로 유명하다. 배고파서 다급하게 찍느라 흔들렸지만, 가운데 검정 접시를 보면 죽풍에 말린 조기와 죽순떡갈비가 있음을 알 수 있다. 식사를 하고 관방제림 산책로에 갔다. 약 15종류의 나무가 심어져 있는 여기는 자전거를 대여해 사용할 수 있고 분수가 설치되어 있는 곳 옆으로 징검다리가 있어 뚝방의 양쪽 길을 오갈 수 있다. 여기는 메타프로방스인데 근처에 메타세쿼이아길이 있고 그 산책로는 유료다. 난 두 곳 중 고민하다 여기를 선택했다. 메타프로방스는 입장이 무료이며 다양한 상점들이 즐비해 있고 이국적인 건축물과 벽화로 카메라에 담는 곳곳이 포토존이다. 담양이 혼자서 당일치기 여행하기로 괜찮은 곳이라고 생각한다. 시간이 된다면 잠시 다녀오는 것을 추천한다. I have been to Damyang in jeollanam-do Province. Every May, the bamboo festival is held here. I recommend that you visit Daesarang restaurant, Jungnow on Bamboo Garden, Gwanbangjerim Forest, Meta-Provence.
