As a Garland chiropractor, I often treat people who arrive at my office in moderate to severe pain. Naturally, seeing people suffer is the worst part of my job.
However, through experience I know that as I correct spinal misalignments, the body will begin to heal. Generally after a few visits my patients begin to feel better. But, at the start of treatment, many people could benefit from something they could take to help the pain.
Prescription pain medications and over the counter analgesics are what most us have learned to rely upon when we have an ache or a pain. The problem is, painkillers, even those a common as aspirin, can have dangerous side effects.
Aspirin can lead to stomach bleeding. Ibuprophen can put you at higher risk for a heart attack or stroke. And then there’s Tylenol (acetaminophen)…
Remember all the hoopla years ago when it was discovered that acetaminophen combined with alcohol could have dangerous consequences? Now it is known that thousands of people suffer liver damage every year due to this over the counter drug. In fact, the government site, PubMed.gov notes that “…acetaminophen hepatotoxicity far exceeds other causes of acute liver failure in the United States.”Current guidelines suggest that you avoid taking Tylenol if you consume three or more alcoholi beverages per day.
So where does that leave us when we need pain relief ?
Fortunately, there are many natural pain relief supplements that reduce inflammation (the main cause of pain), while stengthening the body’s joints and ligaments.
Here are two of my favorite natural pain relief supplements:
Boswellia — also known as “Indian frankincense” is commonly used in ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India. Sourced from the resin of the boswellia tree, the extract is rich in boswellic acid, a substance with strong anti-inflammatory properties.
Tuna Omega-3 Oil – this powerhouse omega-3 combination supports the body’s natural inflammatory response. Of course, this fish oil is good for the heart, but because of it’s unique ratio of DHA and EPA, patients have also reported improvement of their allergy symptoms as well.
These natural pain relief supplements are produced by Standard Process and Medi Herb, two superior companies whose products are produced to exacting standards and with minimal impact on the planet. Both companies offers a complete range of nutritional supplements ideal for treating a wide variety of conditions.
