To live with chronic pain is very challenging. I like to offer you some inspirations to help with pain.
Yoga, Meditation, Therapy, Deep Joy
Emotional Stress is in my perception #1 reason for long term physical pain. Find ways to implement sources of joy and relaxation into your life on a daily base.
Massage therapy, Cranio-sacral therapy, Physio therapy, Feldenkrais, Chiropractic therapy can have a positive result.
Exercise, Yoga and Walks
Mostly pain is related to an overflow of acids and toxins in your body. Deep breathing does help eliminating acids/toxins via the respiratory system.
Exercise does strengthen your muscles. In Germany there is a saying: “A strong back does give you no pain”.
Try to work out as much as you can. YouTube is full of inspirational videos about e.g. exercises for chronic neck and shoulder pain/ degenerative arthritis.
Just do it 🙂
3 Weeks Hypoallergenic Alkaline Diet
This means completely avoiding an acidic diet with all the obvious unhealthy foods to see if your pain is reduced. Your focus is a super clean healthy green diet based on organic green vegetables.
Try to avoid (as much as you can) acid generating foods like sugar, sweeteners, meet (red meat/pork), soft drinks, coffee, black tea, alcohol, milk and dairy products.
After the 3 weeks any pain symptoms should not exist anymore.
After 3 weeks you slowly introduce one acidic food at a time and see how your body reacts and if pain is reintroduced.
Arnica is applied to the skin for pain and swelling associated with bruises, aches, sprains, and arthritis. It is also applied to the skin for muscle and cartilage pain, chapped lips, and acne.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) impacts your health by reducing inflammation and improving your body’s ability to make its own antioxidants.
If you have an inflammatory type of arthritis and lot of pain, probiotics may be especially important. The beneficial bacteria appear to have an impact on inflammation, reducing common biomarkers of inflammation, including C-reactive protein.
Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C has also been linked with pain relief
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
Omega-3 fats are healthy fats with many health benefits for adult and children. Omega-3 fats may help lower your risk of heart disease. In infants, omega-3 fats help with brain, nerve and eye development. Research is currently being done to see if omega-3 fats play a role in lowering the risk of cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and depression.
Serrapeptase has been used successfully for the treatment of cardiovascular problems, arthritis, fibrocystic breast disease, lung problems, sinusitis problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even sports injuries. It is recommended as an anti-aging agent simply because much of aging has to do with the accumulation of scar tissue, inflammation, and dis-regulation.
Dr. Jentschura’s 3 step program
Lots of people report about great results with Dr. Jentschura’s 3 step program. Releasing acids and toxins via the skin in long soothing foot and full bath does miracles. Speaking from my own experience alkaline local treatments with e.g. Dr. Jentschura’s Neck wraps do miracles with head/neck aches. Using the body wrap does help with back pain. Step 2 in having a great green healthy diet does help a lot: Eating large amounts of WurzelKraft does help your kidneys to eliminate toxins and acids. PLEASE READ MORE HERE
