Dealing with Pain (without opioids)

By Bill Shuttic | Blog

How do you deal with pain?  If you’re the average person, you go to the doctor, and the doctor prescribes an opioid for you.  Opioids (which come from the same ingredients found in opium and heroin) are highly addictive.  By treating pain, our medical community is creating drug addicts.  Some estimate the number is in the millions.  It’s becoming an epidemic.  Doctors prescribe over 250 million opioids per year!

 

So, what are the options?  Pain comes in many forms, so different things work for different people.  There is joint pain, muscle pain, internal pain, external pain, headaches, stomach pain, etc.  I suggest trying different remedies to see what works for you.  Here are some options for you:

acupuncture

chiropractic adjustment

massage

epsom salts bath

detoxification

anti-inflammatory diet

external oinments (icy hot, zhengu shui, etc)

essential oils

herbs

supplements

exercise

deep breathing

visualization

 

There are many choices.  Choosing opioids is a risky proposition.  Before you go down that road, look into some natural remedies.
