Have you ever wondered why so many people have so much pain? Why are so many people struggling with their pain on a daily basis? Why do they have such difficulty managing their pain with medications?
Why is it so difficult to find effective solutions for these people? There’s probably a good reason for these questions.
Chronic pain can be difficult to manage. There are many factors that can lead to chronic pain, including genetics, stress, trauma, injury, and illness. The nervous system may become overly-responsive to pain. This is called Central Sensitivity. Nutritional strategies can help lower this sensitivity, allowing us to better manage our pain.
Chronic pain can be associated with an inflammation response.
An inflammation response makes the body more reactive to injury and illness. It’s telling the body to prepare for an injury or illness. Unfortunately, this type of reaction is not helpful in managing chronic pain.
