Stop Letting Pain Ruin Your Life, Take Control Now. Heal Chronic Pain with Mind Body Practices
Yoga makes it possible to Heal Chronic Pain naturally. Chronic pain is debilitating and leaves most in a crippled state. Conventional treatment only make things worse. Pain medication stops the healing process and leaves most in a zombie like state.
Pain in the body after injury is important as it serves as a critical indicator. Moreover, pain functions as a signal that sends the conscious mind messages about the body. Furthermore, when pain medications are ingested after injury, they interrupt signals that the body is sends to the conscious mind. In brief, this compounds injury further. After pain medicine is ingested, the patient forgets about the injury because of a lack of communication from the nervous system.
In addition, medications stop the bodies natural healing process by slowing down the metabolism. In turn this prohibits foods from getting absorbed properly. Nutrient absorption stops because of the altered cytosolic process. Not only is the body not getting vital nutrition to heal, but the heart rate slows down. This process further prohibits oxygen and nutrient flow to the afflicted area.
Throw the Harsh Drugs Away, Heal Chronic Pain Naturally.
Harsh medications prevent the body from sending critical signals to the conscious mind. What happens after the connection becomes interrupted is that the injury gets compounded. Injury does not get to heal properly, and forms excess tissue in the inflammation/adhesion process. In short, adhesion is scar tissue.
First off, scar tissue inhibits blood flow to injured areas. To make matters worse, when drugs are taken, they slow down the heart rate as well as digestion. This either slows or stops the healing process. What happens is that the body is left with excess adhesions in soft tissue. Excess adhesions alter length tension relationships with muscle groups and also cause false proprioception.
Length tension relationship is the tension put on bone or other soft tissue from opposing muscle groups. Proprioception perceived movement compared to actual movement. When this relationship becomes altered it causes improper movement which leads to further injury. Left unaware because of the altered state of consciousness, this forms a vicious domino effect.
Overall, medication is not needed. After injury, the body is capable of producing it’s own pain medication. During times of injury, the body produces oxytocin. Oxytocin is stronger than opiate based medication created in a science lab and does not create adverse side effects. Through mind body practices you can learn how to activate the bodies natural healing process’ to your advantage.
Yoga, Tai Chi, QiGong to Heal Chronic Pain.
“The whole world is your gymnasium” – Swami Vivekananda
Yoga and QiGong were created on the battlefield. As a matter of fact, they originate from the areas of Tibet/Nepal and slowly evolved into their own unique flavors. Battle brings the need for healing.
Physical practice breaks up excess adhesion and heals soft tissue properly. It takes time and patience to return proper range of motion. Healing is often a painful process. Breaking adhesion is not an easy task. During the adhesion process, excess tissue connects to nerves, and other soft tissue that they are not supposed to be connected with. It is important to meet your body where it is every single day, as it is easy to overstretch cause further unnecessary damage.
Chronic pain serves as an inhibitor, stopping most from living a fulfilling life. It can consume you, but this is where meditation serves a vital role.
