Before you read this quote, I'd like you to consider 2 things:
What is the cause of your pain and how can you heal it, not medicate it?
If the cause of your pain requires time to heal, what alternatives to pain medications can you pursue? I will make suggestions at the end of this post.
If you have routinely used these pain medications and want to stop, there are several things to look at. Is your pain directly related to a physical trauma? Is your pain chronic or intermittent? Have you been evaluated by a professional and/or do you know the cause of your pain? Is the pain medication you have been taking effective?
There are many alternatives to pain medications that can help in your healing. Among them:
nutrition - adopt an anti-inflammatory diet - contact me for details
use pain relief herbal remedies, including ginger, turmeric and curcumin - check with your physician if you are taking any prescription medications before using these.
move - unless moving causes more pain, the simple act of moving will improve circulation which is vital to healing.
hydrate - without adequate hydration, the body cannot heal. Drink up.
