Pain Arthritis supplements may help

PAIN is the number one reason for most patient visits

Visits to an M.D., chiropractor, massage/physical/emotional therapist etc.  To cope with pain, people resort to a staggering variety of “treatment options” from aspirin to acupuncture, from ice packs to injections and from meditation to malted milk shakes! To find which treatment option works best for you depends on your personality and the source of your pain. Whether pain stems from illness or injury, people seeking  relief from pain are filling the offices of doctors and therapists. In order to effectively deal with the wide array of “pain types” western medicine divides pain into two main categories and several sub-categories:

  • Acute pain is usually a result of trauma, surgery, labor or other transitory condition. While sharply uncomfortable, acute pain is normally effectively treatable and resolves itself with the healing of the underlying injury/condition. Acute pain serves an important biological function, as it warns of the potential for/or extent of injury.
  • Chronic pain was once defined as pain that extends 3 or 6 months beyond onset or beyond the expected period of healing. However, new definitions differentiate chronic pain from acute pain based on more than just time. Chronic pain is now recognized as pain that extends beyond the period of healing. Chronic pain is also defined as a persistent pain that disrupts sleep and normal living, ceases to serve a protective function, and instead degrades health and functional capability. Thus, unlike acute pain, chronic pain serves no adaptive purpose.

These can be further sub-categorized as: breakthrough pain, cancer pain (old definition used for brevity), chronic non-cancer pain (CNCP), etc. Whatever name you give it, pain is both physically debilitating and emotionally devastating. Research shows that unrelieved pain can lead to a host of other problems including anxiety, fear, sleeplessness and even suicide. It can affect digestion, immune response, insulin levels, kidney function and virtually every system of the body.  In other words…it can slowly kill you so pain control has assumed an ever increasing role in our many health care systems.

How can supplements help with pain?


The best example of this is perhaps the widespread use of glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM. This trio of ingredients forms the basis of the numerous formulas that have millions of people singing their praises. The large numbers of people who have arthritis and have noticeably reduced the pain associated with arthritis using this combination of nutrients is testament to their effectiveness. While these substances have had the most press, they are not the only supplements that help relieve pain.
Inflammation is now recognized as a major component of virtually ALL disease and pain states. Controlling inflammation is now usually the first line of defense in managing disease and pain. Many botanicals are known to help reduce inflammation without the dangerous side effects of anti-inflammatorys. Some of nature’s anti-inflammatories include: ginger, aloe vera, white willow bark, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, tumeric, boswellin, bromelain, mangosteen fruit, many other herbs and fruits and more yet to be discovered.
