You have options when it comes to pain management. Drug therapy is one of those choices. A billion-dollar industry creates marketing messages that promise to end pain quickly. What those highly produced messages do not relay, however, is the risks that accompany drug therapy.
Medications take a toll on your system. In many cases, they also carry a high risk of addiction. Far too many patients turn to medication to ease pain, only to find they have developed a reliance on those medications that creates disruption in other aspects of life.
Surgery is also an option and is necessary in some cases. But acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, and other alternative therapies can relieve pain without surgical intervention. These options require no advanced preparation or recovery time.
Research suggests that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system. Regarding celiac disease and other gastrointestinal issues, acupuncture might improve the “gut-brain interaction,” meaning how your brain processes sensory information from your gut and how it sends pain signals in response.
Acupuncture can be used instead of Western medical treatments for gastrointestinal issues or in conjunction with those therapies. Many people report improvements after adding acupuncture with techniques like dietary changes and stress management.
For many, chronic pain can shape the course of daily activities. Some people find themselves avoiding social interactions for fear of pain, and others limit exercise and other activity to reduce pain.
Short-term pain is the natural result of an injury, surgery, or repetitive stress, but when it lingers and alters how you move through your days, it’s time to seek help. Natural treatment offers a way to reduce pain and improve function.
Allowing pain to limit your social interactions can lead to anxiety and depression. Living a sedentary lifestyle increases your risk of several serious health issues. Acupuncture is a simple, natural treatment option that can help you move away from pain.
