DO YOU CARE ABOUT SOMEONE WITH CHRONIC PAIN

These are some of their challenges.

  • Getting out of bed in the morning.
  • For people suffering with chronic pain, it can be physically difficult to tackle this simple task that the rest of us take for granted. They can have intense pain in every part of their body. Simply walking can be excruciating.
  • Imagine that your clothes hurt you!
  • What if the lightest shirt hurts you, not even to mention shoes? What shoes would you wear to work if your feet were aching and on fire? And what if that was your daily experience.
  • Chronic pain and depression.
  • People with chronic pain are more likely to suffer from depression than others. The risk of suicide nearly doubles in these patients. Interacting, going shopping, socialising, working etc... Life, actually becomes a chore of coping from moment to moment.
  • The vicious cycle of sleep and pain.
  • One of, if not the most important factor impacting chronic pain is sleep. Not enough sleep leads to chronic pain and inflammation. Pain on the other hand inhibits the ability to sleep.
  • Forget about focusing?
  • The pain becomes all-encompassing, making it difficult to focus on anything else.
  • Relationships? Are extremely difficult to maintain in every way.
  • Extremely frustrating is the invisibility of the illness. You don't look ill so it must be psychosomatic. Or "obviously it can't be that bad"... Right?

If you're reading this, then go to www.prevention.com. They have some awesome tips for you. This is where I got this info from. Please note, this is a reworked article from that site.

TIP. Avoid massage during an inflammatory flare-up. Also, I suggest a massage (when you can) with a good CBD cream to help with the sensitivity. I have had a lot of success treating patients with hyper-sensitivity since using CBD during my treatments. The drops also work. Oh yes... and one more thing... A foot massage may be the answer. Yeah!

STRESS, HYPERTENSION AND MASSAGE

  • HYPERTENSION is caused by a build-up of CHOLESTEROL in the arteries.
  • CHOLESTEROL is a natural fatty substance found in the body’s cells and blood. It is essential to the body. When there is too much, it can lead to cardiovascular problems by building up and it can lead to blockage of the arteries which can lead to heart attack/stroke.
  • STRESS produces change in the body’s chemistry, keeping the fight n flight response system on overdrive constantly. This causes the LIVER to constantly dump CHOLESTEROL into the bloodstream.
  • MASSAGE reduces the STRESS response, which helps lower CHOLESTEROL in the blood by stopping the excess flow of cholesterol into the bloodstream.

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD)

  • The physical impact of trauma can obviously cause immediate physical effects and injury, or encourage physical symptoms that progress later on.
  • The psychological symptoms of PTSD can also create physical pain symptoms.
  • Sleep disturbance, hyper-arousal/hyper-vigilance, and anxiety all create physical tension and stress
  • (check out my other Facebook page "Awesome Wellness" re stress/health/inflammation)
  • Migraines, back pain, stomach pains, body aches, and other issues can easily stem from PTSD symptoms.
  • There are many co-occurring issues, like depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and obesity that can trigger physical pain symptoms.

GUT HEALTH AND YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, coined the concept that food should serve as medicine and postulated, “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food." Cliché? Yip! However, truer than it's ever been...

According to research, there are at least 80 autoimmune diseases, including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and type 1 diabetes.

It is thought that an unhealthy gut may increase SYSTEMIC INFLAMMATION and ALTER the functioning of the IMMUNE SYSTEM?, leading to autoimmune and other diseases.
