Non-pharmacetical Pain “Killers” - from subtle to strong

Pain certainly alerts us – and it keeps us close to home and slows us down for healing. Pain normally resultss from wear-and-tear, damage and accidents.
When a shock or emotional challenge is active, we rarely feel anything. When we slip into the healing phase of these, then rebuilding or replenishing of affected tissues and/or organs can be accompanied with an abundance of pain (that’s actually when most of us think the issue is actually starting, when in fact it is esolving!

If you have a very painful slipped disc, sore jaw (not from dentistry), or arthritis, please give me a call and I’d be happy to explain this further, in detail, to cast more light on what I mean above.

Morphine and other serious painkillers can dull the pain and ease the misery but also slow down the healing process and cause too much water retention - just when you don’t want water retension to interfere. So if you want to try something less dramatic, here are a few suggestions.

Sometimes subtlety can come in handy - these suggestions listed from subtle to stonger:

* the homeopathic Arnica - from your homeopath, naturopath or quality health supplement store

Traumeel cream or drops (by –Heel Corp.) - no longer for sale on the shelves at North American natural apothecaries or better health stores but still available in Europe and online at sites such as http://www.healthypets.com/traumeelgel50.html and http://www.iherb.com

* birch and clove essential oils - from an aroma therapist, quality aromatherapy store or quality health supplement store 

* 2 teaspoons of cod liver oil / 2 or 3X per day (I’m a wimp and add a bit of orange liqueur for taste) - from quality health supplement stores – and works well when combined with this next item here below

* Proteolytic or Protease enzymes – enzymes that are designed to ONLY work with the digestion of proteins – and/or bromelain. But rather than using these for digestion associated with food, the protease (also called a proteolytic enzyme) must be taken on an empty stomach, between meals, to be effective as a pain killer - away from food - so therefore not as instructed on the label by the company selling them. 
Of course, taken in this manner they are not meant for digestion purposes so the trick is to wait till one has an empty stomach and then use these enzymes and not eat for a period of time to let them do their magic. The health food store’s sales persons will likely talk you into something else and also relate it back to food – but that’s the common and usual use - so hold steadfast – you are the client - and get what's right for your needs. Although I do not sell supplements - keeps my integrity - I do suggest M7+ by Naturpharm - and this is only in the best stores.

* wintergreen essential oil – sold in some drug stores and pharmacies and without prescription and is extremely inexpensive – under $10 per small bottle and will last you through many calamities!!! Health Canada politics are such that it is hard to find in an essential oils store or with an aroma therapist - that’s why these practitioners are likely to suggest the essential oils mentioned higher up, which are much more subtle – (a well known US MLM company sells this wintergreen oil for an exorbitant fee under a fancy name - buyer beware). This oil is fragrant – you will smell like a Christmas candy! 

* DMSO, (easier to find in the USA than Canada) is great to put under essential oils and this acts like a carrier and amplifies the effectiveness of the oils. I order mine from http://www.jacoblab.com (about $38 U$ and have it shipped). If you live in Vancouver BC, then I'll be able to tell you by phone where to purchase DMSO at the moment, if you mention my name. Ot you can order from http://www.lifechoice.net.
It is a clear, slightly smelly, liquid and leaves a a bit of a metalic taste on the tongue – DMSO is a miraculous carrier (and more). More on this at http://www.pacificholistic.com/DMSO

An elegant and potent pain solution:
If you use the last two in tandem, you have a winning elegant pain solution combination!
Put the DMSO on in a very slow and sparingly maner and carefully put on with only the amount that sticks to your finger - DO NOT pour a little puddle into your palm and slap it on!
Then, after a minute or two, with the DMSO absorbing, add a thin layer of the wintergreen oil - very carefully - on top. Then, Pain Be Gone! This is so-oooo effective and you will smell like a fishy, garlicky Xmas candy! And who cares when you're in pain. Initially you may taste the DMSO and the wintergreen on your tongue - this lasts less than a few minutes.

Pain has it’s reasons and uses. If, like some of us, you believe that ailments, health issues and disease come to us in two phases – the active and the healing phases - then most often, it’s the healing phase that comes with the pain – swelling, heat, inflammation, tiredness and possibly more pain - and this is when soothing and mindful nurturing is called for.

Good luck.

Testimonial:

I thought I’d give live blood cell analysis one more try with Pacific Holistic... I had this process done once before and was in awe of seeing my blood magnified onto a monitor. I was less impressed by the practitioner, whose nutritional education was lacking but not his resolve to take me and my long list of required supplements to a nearby health store and then to find out that this practitioner was actually an employee of the store, as well! Ms. Bakker makes suggestions for subtle lifestyle changes, new food choices and learning more, first. This isn’t earth shattering but tailored uniquely to me and then there’s a list with priorities and suggestions as to supplements and which brands and possible stores in the Lower Mainland that carry these brands – and I’m free to proceed as I wish. Her report and summary are thorough and honest and good to refer back to.
