A Natural Approach to Health
Living With Aches and Pains
I had a question the other day about general aches and pains.
Everyone suffers from aches and pains from time to time.
This can be anything from a cramp or waking up stiff to a migraine or arthritis.
An ache is defined as a continuous dull pain in any part of your body.
Your brain registers pain when something is damaged or has gone wrong.
Pain is an alarm signal to your body to stop the current activity or take alternative action.
Pain is a more general term and can be of a short or long duration.
No matter what your health concerns are, whether they’re minor or significant, acute or chronic, preventive or anti-aging, your very best doctor lives within you.
Your body’s internal wisdom strives for optimal health in every situation.
You need to provide the daily essential nutrients EVERY cell needs to enable natural growth, repair and healing mechanisms to obtain and maintain optimal well-being.
To deal with general aches and pains it’s beneficial to:
*Drink purified water – 6-8 cups minimum daily.
*Increase your intake of essential fats (Omega-3 oils, flaxseed oil, olive oil). These help lubricate your joints and decrease inflammation.
*Exercise, keep moving.
*Breathe deeply to oxygenate your cells.
*Get some sunshine.
*Chiropractic care and/or massage.
*Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate (RICE) injuries.
*Eat fresh (not canned) pineapple and/or papaya because they contain enzymes that help reduce inflammation.
*Begin nutritional support immediately after injury to avoid scar tissue formation and speed healing.
*Explore the use of Arnica, a homeopathic remedy.
*Avoid acid-forming foods/drinks (coffee, soda pop, dairy, red meat, sugar, processed foods, white flour products, etc.)
*Eliminate exposure to toxic materials and/or cleaning products because these can trigger or aggravate some conditions.
*Avoid MSG and artificial sweeteners because they’re neurotoxins.
