Relieving Pain in Natural Way

Despite our contempt for pain, it actually serves a purpose and a high value on that. Pain is part of the defense system of our body and its purpose is to help us avoid harmful behaviors. In other words, your body telling you that it does not like what you do and would prefer that you stop it. Sometimes we choose not to listen to this message and other times we have no choice but to listen and observe.

What treats common pain? The drugs are very popular for pain relief and can be very effective. Unfortunately, the harmful effects of many drugs have become known in recent years and many of us find disturbing information. Pain relief medication can cause gastrointestinal complications, liver damage, kidney problem and many other reactions. In addition, some pain medications have been withdrawn from the market due to an increased risk of heart attack or stroke. Increasingly, people are looking for more natural approaches to help relieve the painful conditions. Acupuncture is one of the natural approaches, which continues to grow in popularity in the United States. Acupuncture can be useful for all types of pain, regardless of what causes the pain or when pain is located. The theory behind acupuncture and Chinese medicine states that there is an energy that flows through the human body. This energy can become blocked for a variety of different reasons. The results of the obstruction happen in worse pain or discomfort. This is summarized by the well known Chinese proverb: "If there is pain, there is no freedom of movement, if there is movement, there is no pain." The goal of treatment is to identify obstructions by inserting extremely fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body.
From a scientific point of view, acupuncture has been shown to trigger the release of endorphins and encephalin, a Chemical with analgesic properties. Other theories suggest that acupuncture needles jam the neuronal circuits and prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. The World Health Organization (WHO) in its 2002 report entitled Acupuncture: Review and analysis of reports on controlled clinical trials, said that acupuncture "may be considered the method of choice for treating many chronic and painful". This does not mean that acupuncture is a magic potion for all. But it would be wise for us to learn about options for pain relief available, including non-medication options. Armed with this information, we can make informed decisions that are best suited to our particular situation.
