    Six natural ways to reduce pain

    Chronic pain is a big problem in modern society. We know this because analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs are some of the most widely used medications. Many people cannot get through their day without them. Chronic pain is a terrible, inescapable stress, especially when the pain reduces the ability of a person to sleep. Modern pain relieving drugs, therefore definitely have their place and enable millions of people to function and live a normal life. Problems arise when pain relieving drugs cause side effects such as stomach and digestive problems, or an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Some pain relieving medication can even be highly addictive. I’d like to make you aware that there are several inexpensive and easy ways to reduce the amount of pain you experience.

Making these suggested changes to your diet can reduce your requirement for medication and improve your quality of life. Read More »
