Pain is usually described as a distressing sensation in a particular
part of the body. It is an unpleasant or hurtful sensation resulting
from the stimulation of nerve endings. Pain is a complicated
process that involves interaction between a number of natural
chemicals found in the brain and spinal cord. The reason pain
occurs in your body is to protect you. Neurotransmitters, as these
chemicals are called handle the task of transmitting nerve impulses
from one cell to another.

Imagine it this way, that a message of injury is transmitted from the
injured area directly to your brain, which registers the sensation
known as pain. The brain perceives this pain and sends the pain
message back to the injured area. This process happens very
quickly within nanoseconds. If your brain registers pain, you
typically stop doing what caused it. It goes back to the "fight or
flight" instinct. Pain is the body's way of letting you know that what
you are doing is harmful, and that you need to stop. Like the best
way to keep good health is to follow a healthy natural diet regimen,
conventional treatment of pain should be preferred rather than
treating it with drugs.

Our medical systems have a poor track record for treating pain. A
recent report from the CDC’s national Center for health statistics
showed in 2008, accidental deaths from prescription pain killers
had surpassed deaths from automobile accidents in the United
States. This is from a huge river of prescription pain medications
being produced and distributed in United States through our
broken medical system.

In a recent medical conference a Dr. that teaches at Revolutionary
technique for treating chronic pain mentioned how he was a fourth
generation primary care physician. He looked back to see what his
great, great grandfather had used for pain Treatments and basically
it came down to preparations from willow bark and the opium
poppy. These are the origins of all of our present day drug
treatments of the aspirin-like NSAID drugs and the multitude of
addicting, synthetic opioid drugs. So put another way, our
treatment of pain has not changed much in 200 years.

Sure, we have developed techniques to deliver these drugs deeper
and deeper into the body such as opioid pumps and injections of
steroid with powerful steroid anti- inflammatories into the spine.
But as with most of modern medicine, these treatments ignore the
root-causes of pain and have many side effects, complications and,
in the case of the spinal injections, usually only short-term relief. All
for potential catastrophic complications like paralysis and death.

 You might ask why are they steroid epidural injections so popular despite
giving minimal benefit and then only short-term relief and dangerous
risks? The answer lies in the money. These treatments are covered
handsomely by payers like Medicare and commercial insurance
companies. The old adage “if you pay people to do stuff, they will do
more stuff.” The drug companies and the failed western medicine
paradigm are the cause of our poor record of any advancement in pain
treatment.

The Chronic Pain Epidemic
According to the International Association of the Study of Pain 43% of Americans have
chronic or recurring pain. 20% of people have chronic moderate to severe pain. 1/2-2/3
of these people are unable to exercise, enjoy normal sleep, perform household chores,
drive a car, walk or have sexual relations. 39% of those with chronic pain stated their Pain
is inadequately managed. The economic burden of chronic pain is equivalent to the
burden of cancer and heart disease. All symptoms of chronic pain can be easily tackled by
following a healthy lifestyle and nutritional natural diet specifications. Majority of
muscular pain cases arise due to unhealthy lifestyle and improper fitness routines.
