Get Off The Synthetic Painkiller Train! Go for Drug-Free Pain Relief Instead

Get off the NSAID Train! Go for Drug-Free Relief Instead

Courtesy of Dr. Mark Wiley, David Levine and Steve Hefferon

Chronic pain is persistent, long-lasting discomfort that doesn't resolve itself or respond to routine pain-relief methods. Clearly, despite their arsenal of elaborate and costly hi-tech medical procedures, doctors cannot diagnose how to stop this growing national health emergency.

Today more than 150 million Americans suffer chronic pain. This amounts to a whopping 100% increase in just a dozen years! How is it possible, with our modern scientific mainstream medicine, that people are suffering more, not less?

When it comes to pain relief, most people turn first to their medicine cabinet and have more than one pain reliever on hand to choose from. It's as if while we were children we hopped aboard the NSAID Train, and the pain relief destination was never reached. There are so many options along the way... and yet none of them are healthy. Let's look at why.


While acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol) offers temporary pain relief and fever reduction, it does not reduce swelling (inflammation). It can be harmful to the liver and kidney if you take more than the recommended dose.


Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)

Yes, NSAID's work fast to relieve acute pain, but they may cause gastrointestinal bleeding. They may also be harmful if you have high blood pressure or kidney disease. And they should NEVER be given to children. Aspirin has been associated with a disease called Reye's syndrome in children.


COX-2 Inhibitors

Yes, these work as well as NSAIDs while being less harsh on the stomach, but numerous reports of heart attacks and stroke have prompted the FDA to re-evaluate the risks and benefits of the COX-2s. COX-2 drugs such as Vioxx and Celebrex were actually taken off the market because of these risks.


Narcotics Painkillers

This class of prescription drugs is powerful, but abuse and addition are serious side effects. An estimated 20 percent of people in the United States have used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons. The problem is serious and it is growing. The availability of drugs is probably one reason. Doctors are prescribing more drugs for more health problems than ever before. Online pharmacies make it easy to get prescription drugs without a prescription, even for youngsters.

When experiencing pain and deciding whether or not to reach for OTC or RX drugs, remember that pain is not the biggest problem. The biggest problem is...Drugs Don't Heal!

If you are still in pain from a recent injury, or are suffering chronic pain, then you know the Golden Rule of Pain: Drugs don't fix the problem, they only mask the symptoms. And pain is a symptom, not the problem.

Pain relief medications should only be used temporarily, if needed. The more natural and preventive approach is to understand the pain problem, and take proactive approaches to relieving pain and preventing new pain. And there are so many options for pill-free pain relief to choose from. None better than healthy lifestyle choices.

Relief Is In Lifestyle Choices
Natural, lasting drug-free pain relief is based on wide reaching lifestyle changes. Simple changes can go a long way to reducing and preventing pain from your life. Here are some tips.


Maintain a healthy weight

There is no question that eating healthy is not easy nowadays, whether you're at home or at a restaurant. But at the very least, you must try to decrease your intake of sugars and hydrogenated oils and increase your daily intake of fiber. Ideally, you should be consuming 35 grams of fiber (that is a ton of fiber, but it's worth shooting for).


Get better sleep

7 to 9 hours of sleep is a must for optimal health; getting a good night's sleep is key to controlling systemic inflammation.


Relax more often to lower stress levels

Find time for yourself throughout the day to focus on your breathing and clear the clutter from your mind; learn to stay focused on the most important tasks in your life.


Exercise on a regular basis

People always ask me: What's the best exercise to do? I always tell them: Do something you like to do and, if your body can tolerate it, aim for 15-20 minutes three times a week.


Manual therapies aid relief

Manual therapies, such as massage, chiropractic and other forms of bodywork do wonders for keeping the body supple, stretched, relaxed, and pain free. The removal or diminishing of trigger points and spasms and the increase in blood flow which brings nutrients and oxygen to painful areas... is like a wonder drug in itself.


Seek alternative practitioners

When your lifestyle changes have done as much as they can to reduce your pain, it may be time to see a practitioner of alternative therapies. There are so many great methods to choose from, including acupuncture, EFT, Rolfing, Alexander Technique, Sedona Method, etc. It is best to do some research into your individual healing issues and seek out a holistic healing method and practitioner that meets your needs. Research and consultations go a long way to helping you decide.


Use natural Homeopathic remedies

When on-going pain relief is sought—as in chronic condition and immediate acute trauma—we recommend turning to natural Homeopathic products for help. Systemic proteolytic enzymes, such as found in the formulas Heal-N-Soothe and Rub-On-Relief, offer methods of removing metabolic waste from blood and tissue while bringing fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients to help healing—without the synthetic drug side-effects.

In the end, what is important is that you give up your reliance on prescription and over-the-counter pain drugs. They do more long-term harm than short-term good, and should only be used in emergencies. Making the necessary and correct lifestyle changes will do much more to provide lasting pain relief, but putting you into a life of prevention... which is always the best medicine!

Dan Monahan had reached the point where he was willing to try anything - anything to ease the constant pain and inflammation in his leg. He could no longer walk. Even standing was uncomfortable.

His doctor gave him several prescription medicines but nothing helped. Pain was ruining his life. When Dan saw an ad for this natural pain reliever, he was skeptical. How could this product work when every prescription his doctor gave him hadn't? But he decided to give it a try. Let Dan tell you what happened:

"Was I pleasantly surprised! After only 2 to 3 days on the activation dose, I noticed reduced inflammation and less pain in my leg."

After just three weeks, Dan started walking again. This all natural product worked for Dan when all of his prescription drugs hadn't. You can relieve your constant, burning pain when prescription drugs no longer work — just like Dan did — with Heal-n-Soothe™.

That's because Heal-n-Soothe™ works differently than prescription drugs. Here's how:

Prescription drugs reduce inflammation by switching off important compounds your body needs. Many are vital to your health. Eventually, you may need more drugs to get the same relief. Or worse, you experience dangerous side effects caused by drugs that are supposed to help you feel better.

Heal-n-Soothe™ works with nature by adding more of the enzymes that naturally reduce inflammation. With Heal-n-Soothe™, your body has everything it needs to repair and renew your muscles and joints. You have less pain as a result - with no life threatening side effects.

So if you're in constant pain and prescription drugs no longer help, don't wait another second: Click here to ease your pain and cool inflammation with Heal-n-Soothe™!

Are the foods you are eating keeping you in pain?

An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Could Be the Ticket to Feeling Better

(Courtesy of Steve Hefferon, CMT, PTA and co-founder of

When I say the word "inflammation," it's likely to evoke thoughts of painful joints and muscles, swelling, and a loss of mobility. But did you know that recent research shows that chronic inflammation in your body can lead to serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, and Alzheimer's disease, to name just a few?

The amount of inflammation in your body varies and is dependent on a number of factors - including your activity level, the amount of sleep you get, the degree of stress in your life, and even the foods you eat. What you have to realize is that these factors are cumulative - meaning they build up over time. And the more that any or all of these factors get out of whack, the risk for disease increases.

Early in life, these levels can be so low that you might not even be aware that you have any inflammation in your body. That's because our bodies do a fairly decent job of controlling the inflammation - at least for a while. Then one day you wake up and you're in your 40s and something is just not right. That's when the fear begins to set in, and you think to yourself: What did I do wrong? or What can I do now to help myself?

The first step is to get your C-reactive protein (CRP) levels tested. C-reactive protein is produced by the liver, and the level of CRP rises when there is systemic inflammation in the body. Ask your doctor about this (you may have to demand to have the test done). All it requires is a blood sample that will be evaluated by your doctor. And because diet can play a large role in how much or how little inflammation you have, you may want these levels looked at by a registered dietician who can help you formulate an appropriate eating plan.

If you have pain due to inflammation, you may choose to take the traditional medical path, which includes non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroids, and even joint-replacement surgery in extreme cases. The good news is that there are natural ways to fight inflammation without the undesirable side-effects that often result from the treatments listed above.

What You Eat Makes All The Difference

The food we eat is a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to controlling inflammation. The typical American diet consists of too much fat, tons of sugar, loads of red meat, and a frightening amount of processed foods - all of which are likely to increase inflammation and contribute to obesity, which itself is can cause inflammation. By switching to an anti-inflammatory diet plan consisting of healthy whole foods, you can actually decrease inflammation and ease the pain and discomfort associated with it.

The first step is to avoid processed foods, foods high in sugar, and junk food whenever possible. Instead, choose fresh whole foods, especially anti-inflammatory varieties such as lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables. But choose carefully. Many vegetables and pre-packaged "health" foods can actually work against you. Use this handy list of the best and worst foods for controlling inflammation:

Inflammatory foods

Sugar, from any source
Processed foods
French Fries
Fast Foods
White bread
Ice Cream
Cheddar Cheeses
Snack Foods
Oils such as vegetable and corn
Soda, caffeine and alcohol

In addition to these dietary changes it is also recommended that you:

* Maintain a healthy weight - There is no question that eating healthy is not easy nowadays, whether you're at home or at a restaurant. But at the very least, you must try to decrease your intake of sugars and hydrogenated oils and increase your daily intake of fiber. Ideally, you should be consuming 35 grams of fiber (that is a ton of fiber, but it's worth shooting for).

* Get better sleep - 7 to 9 hours of sleep is a must for optimal health; getting a good night's sleep is key to controlling systemic inflammation.

* Relax more often to lower stress levels - Find time for yourself throughout the day to focus on your breathing and clear the clutter from your mind; learn to stay focused on the most important tasks in your life.

* Exercise on a regular basis - People always ask me: What's the best exercise to do? I always tell them: Do something you like to do and, if your body can tolerate it, aim for 15-20 minutes three times a week.

* Demand to have you CRP levels tested - This simple blood test is the best indicator of the amount of systemic inflammation in your body. Have the levels evaluated by a certified health care provider who can suggest the most appropriate action.

So, if you are in pain and you've made a conscious decision to help yourself get better, then you would want to seriously consider...

Real Pain Relief: Better Than Any Prescription Painkiller?

Please read below a special message from my friend Jesse Cannone, co-founder of The Healthy Back Institute. He has some eye opening and important information to share with you my savvy reader. 

Thank you,
Jevaughn Brown

Tired Of Chronic Aches and Pains?

Fast, Safe All Natural Pain Relief Is Here!

This may be the most powerful all-natural painkiller ever discovered?

A study published in The American Journal of Roentgenology found 80% of back pain sufferers had soft-tissue inflammation...

This is a critical point if you're suffering from any-type of back pain or sciatica because...

There are ONLY two basic physiological types of pain: tissue-pain and nerve-pain.

If you have a condition like sciatica, herniated disc, stenosis or scoliosis you probably suffer from BOTH types of pain. You have both tissue-pain caused by inflammation and this causes nerve-pain by exerting pressure on your nerves (sciatica is a very common example of this).

If you've injured your back the pain is almost all inflammation related: Because inflammation is your body's natural reaction to trauma. And in a minute I'll show you why your inflammation isn't going away like it did when you were younger.

First though, think about your own back pain for a second...

Do your back muscles hurt or ache? If so, your pain is definitely caused to some degree by inflammation. To get rid of your pain you'll have to first, get rid of the inflammation and second, get rid of any ongoing causes of inflammation.

Do you feel a lot of nerve pain? Things like shooting lines of pain, burning, numbness, and pinching tend to be nerve-pain. But guess what? Often the pressure and pinching of the nerve occurs because the surrounding tissue is inflamed and expanded!

That's why the study found soft-tissue inflammation in 80% of back pain sufferers. Because even pain caused by damage to nerves in your spine is often partly a result of inflammation in the surrounding tissue.

Here's why your pain won't go away...

As you get older your production of the enzymes that reduce your inflammation decrease, so your pain goes away slower, and slower as you age.

Remember spraining an ankle, or pulling a muscle during your 20s? You probably recovered in a couple of weeks or less. But the same injury now nags at you for months.

Your body just isn't dealing with inflammation as well as it used to... and if you don't reduce the inflammation the pain is just not going to go away.

Which, incidentally, is why our Lose The Back Pain System focuses on removing the underlying cause of weak back muscles and soft-tissue damage in the body caused by structural tension -- but I'm not here to talk about The Lose The Back Pain System today.

Because I want to talk to you about how getting rid of inflammation is fundamental to getting rid of back pain.

That's why most doctors will prescribe an anti-inflammatory when you have back pain. But none of us want to be stuck on prescription drugs all the time -- not to mention, prescription anti-inflammatories have a terrible record of putting people's lives at risk.

So we recommend an all-natural, safe anti-inflammatory supplement called Heal-n-Soothe that works so well, many folks write in to tell us it works much better than their prescriptions.

Here's what people are saying about Heal-N-Soothe:

"WOW! Huge difference -- I stopped taking painkillers!"

"All I can say is a big WOW and thank you. I have only been taking them for 4 or 5 days, but have noticed a huge difference. I stopped taking my strong painkillers, Co Codemal (the strongest) and Dihydrocodine, which I was taking every day at the full limit allowed in a day. I feel 'almost' normal again."

From a very very grateful,
Angela Jaggs (England, UK)

"I'm off prescription Celebrex because of Heal-n-Soothe.TM My heartfelt thanks!"

"I am happy to report I no longer take Celebrex, once the only drug that would allow me to function 'normally' by blocking the pain. Heal-n-SootheTM reduces the inflammation to a point where I can now look forward to a productive day, plan trips and live with about 80% less pain." --Christine M. (Canada)

"My pain and inflammation went down in just 2 days!"

"I have been taking Heal-n-Soothe for 3 weeks now. I must say at first I was very skeptical, I was thinking 'How can this really help if my medication the doctor gave me does not work??!' But sometimes you reach a point or a day where the pain is so bad, that you will try anything... So I did.
After about 2-3 days on the activation dose, I noticed reduced inflammation, and my pain in my leg reduced. I'm a believer that you 'Can't put a price on your health.'" --Dan Monahan, (England) 

Heal-N-Soothe is a proteolytic enzyme formula that replaces the inflammation-fighting enzymes your body isn't producing enough of anymore... 

The enzymes go right to the root of inflammation where the repair and regeneration of injured tissue takes place. It neutralizes the bio-chemicals that keep inflammation from going away... 

And this means you can reduce the inflammation and pain naturally... without any of the side effects that are typical of medications. 

Did you know the same natural anti-inflammation properties that deliver whole-body pain relief ALSO could fight Heart Attack, Stroke and Alzheimer's?
The New England Journal of Medicine reports: "there is convincing evidence that inflammation is strongly linked to heart attacks and stroke." A Harvard study agreed: "half of all heart attacks are CAUSED by inflammation."

Plus, a study in The Annals of Neurology , the official journal of the American Neurological Association, concluded: "inflammation is linked to Alzheimer's and other degenerating diseases."

There is simply no doubt about it, tissue inflammation in your body is deadly. It's also one of the PRIMARY causes of pain in your body.

And if you are not doing anything to address inflammation in your body it will make your life miserable because every day you'll wake up with more aches and pains ... your back will hurt more and more as the months go by ... pain will become a bigger and bigger part of your life. And finally, inflammation could cause an early death.

But you when you're taking Heal-n-Soothe, you're fighting and reducing tissue inflammation throughout all of your body's systems ...

You're reducing inflammation in your muscles...

You're reducing inflammation in your arteries and blood vessels ...

You're reducing inflammation in tissue throughout your entire body!

Since it reduces pain and naturally fights the cause of 50% of heart-attacks ... fights a major contributing cause of stroke and Alzheimer's ...

But I don't want you to just take our word for it...

The Best Kept Secret To Freeing Yourself Of Back Pain For Good

In all seriousness, I'd like to introduce you to what I believe is the best kept secret to freeing yourself of back pain for good.

So many people suffer with recurring back pain because common treatments only address the symptoms and not the true cause. When you just treat symptoms, back pain never really goes away.

Long-lasting pain relief comes only when you look at the cause.

The Lose The Back Pain system is your personalized guide to understanding what's causing your back, hip, or neck pain. And after it helps you discover the cause, this system shows you how to correct the problem and *lose* the pain!.

It's the ONLY Self Diagnosis and Self Treatment System that addresses BOTH the cause and the symptoms!

Ever wonder why so many people can't seem to find lasting relief?

There are hidden causes of back pain that most people don't know about. In fact, most doctors don't even know about them. And how can they when they were never taught any of this? Now Jesse Cannone, creator of Muscle Balance Therapy™, wants to change all that.

Muscle imbalances play a significant role in most back pain. One side of your body may be stronger than the other. Some muscles may be more flexible and still others may be tight and shortened from overuse.

These muscle imbalances stress your joints, ligaments, and surrounding muscles, causing pain. Muscle Balance Therapy™ strives to balance your muscles so muscle tension returns to normal. When your left and right sides, and front to back of your body's muscles are balanced, your spine can be evenly supported. Posture improves, vertebrae slide back into place, releasing pressure from pinched nerves and muscles. Your back pain vanishes!

The Lose The Back Pain system helps you identify your muscle imbalances through several simple self-assessments. Once you've located your imbalances, the system teaches you how to use Muscle Balance Therapy™ to re-balance, stretch, and strengthen your problem areas.

The system simply brings your body back into proper alignment and helps reverse the process that created the pain in the first place.

Imagine having Jesse and Steve guide you step-by-step through the simple assessments on the first DVD, then the stretches and the exercises on the second. You know you're doing them correctly as you watch them demonstrated, right in the privacy of your home.

Even if you're suffering from sciatica or a herniated disc, you'll find conditions like those included on the DVDs and in the Self-Assessment Workbook.

The system includes: 2 DVDs, 3 audio CDs, a reference manual, and personal workbook for you to create your custom treatment plan.

And here's the best part - and this really sets these guys apart from the rest. You are welcome to call or email them with your questions about your specific situation! Personal support can make all the difference when you're dealing with back pain or sciatica.

And to top it all off, you can (for now) try it absolutely FREE for 30 days! If you're still suffering with back pain, hip pain, sciatic pain or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to check this out.

Click here to learn how, with the Lose The Back Pain system, you can finally free yourself from the grips of constant pain.

Some More Simple Sciatic Stretches For Rapid Pain Relief

A few weeks back I posted a video demonstrating one of the best sciatic stretches out there. Well, now I've found another video, courtesy of back pain/sciatica expert and personal trainer Jesse Cannone, showing some more advanced - and for some people - even more effective sciatica stretches. You can easily perform them anywhere you can comfortably lie down. (Use somewhere with a mat or carpet or just the bare floor; at home, at the gym; whatever works for you.) 

I recommend doing both the sitting sciatic stretch shown in my previous post-video here AND these lying down variations but at different times in the day as convenient for your schedule. Start slow, pay close attention to good form as illustrated in the video, and above all listen to your body - it'll tell you how fast to progress and what combinations work for you. 

The tension release provided by these sciatica stretches will provide great pain relief within a short time.  These are of course treating the symptom not the cause(s) - Depending on the severity of your sciatica you may need a more comprehensive program for permanent pain relief, but in any case these *will* bring help greatly... OK here's that cool little video now:

For more in-depth information on what REALLY causes conditions like sciatica, all types of back pain, etc, and HOW to fix the real problems, heal the damage and eliminate the pain forever from the comfort of your own home, take a serious look at this detailed expert advisory report here

I'm going through this program right now and I'm convinced it really is the back pain relief answer millions have been hoping for. Learn the "Hidden Causes" of every case of sciatica and get the EXACT ways to wipe them out and live pain-Free.

Peace and Victory Over Pain,
Jevaughn Brown

P.S. Make sure to try those sciatica stretches - They'll work if you work them...

Did You Know Your Blood pH Levels Could Be Keeping You In Pain?

(Courtesy of Jesse Cannone)

Remember the litmus test from high school chemistry lab? You stuck a small strip of litmus paper into a solution, and if it turned red, it meant the solution was acidic. If it turned blue, the solution was basic (alkaline).

Well, the body has its own sort of litmus test: It's called your pH level. And many health care professionals consider a balanced pH level to be the key to good health.

The term pH stands for Potential Hydrogen, which is the concentration of hydrogen ions in a substance or solution. The pH range is 0 to 14. Human blood pH is ideally 7.35. Higher numbers indicate alkalinity; lower numbers indicate acidity.

Constricted Muscles

The body simply cannot tolerate extended acid imbalances. In the early stages of an imbalance, symptoms may include such things as skin eruptions, headaches, allergies, colds and flu, and sinus problems. As things get further out of kilter, weakened systems start to give way. If tissue pH deviates too far to the acid side, oxygen levels decrease and cells die.

On the other side of the coin, it is virtually impossible for a health disorder or disease to sustain itself when your pH is in the neutral zone (7.0-7.4). At this level, the body has a strong immunity to diseases. Most Americans, however, have a pH level of 6.2 to 6.4.

When your pH is out of the normal range, all sorts of bad things happen. For one thing, disease-producing organisms thrive. This explains why some people exposed to certain bacteria or viruses get sick while others don't.

Acidic conditions can cause muscles to constrict and inhibit the exchange of nutrients and waste products in muscle cells, causing fatigue, soreness, and pain. In fact, a pH imbalance affects all cellular activity in the body and can lead to a wide range of degenerative diseases and symptoms.

Among other things, acidic blood blocks vitamin absorption, creates toxic buildup in clogged cells, slows organ function, prevents proper digestion, creates excess gas and bloating, causes unhealthy weight gain, and speeds the aging process.

When pH is lower than 7.0, aging is accelerated because natural acid salts build up in the walls of your cells, causing them to stiffen and dry up. By the same token, aging is slowed when acid waste is removed from the body.

How It Happens

Diet and stressful lifestyle can directly affect the pH levels of all body fluids, which determines how well your immune system functions. A weakened immune system, of course, means low resistance to infections. High acid also allows LDL-cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) to build up faster in your arteries, damaging artery walls and creating plaque buildup.

High acidity enters your body when you eat processed foods, pre-packaged foods, sugary foods, pastas, dairy products (milk, cheese, ice cream, etc.), alcoholic beverages, drugs, table salt. Meats also promote acidity.

Stress plays a significant role in creating excess acid. This is why Type A personalities - who tend to live in a perpetual state of tension and rigidity - are prone to develop acidic conditions. If you don't get enough sleep or exercise or face life-changing events - loss of a job, divorce, moving to a new city, etc. - your body probably has more acid than it can handle.

Restoring The Balance

Moderate changes in your diet can help restore your pH balance. For starters, try eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, almonds, and yogurt. And go lighter on cheeses, soft drinks, alcohol, processed foods, and sweeteners (use raw honey instead). Roughly 75 percent of your diet should consist of alkaline-producing foods.

If these dietary changes seem too oppressive, you might consider taking alkaline supplements. One recent study looked at whether supplementation with alkaline minerals would influence symptoms in patients with chronic low back pain. Researchers gave 82 such patients 30 grams of a lactose-based alkaline mineral supplement (Basica) daily over a period of four weeks in addition to their medication.

Pain symptoms were measured using the Arbus Low Back Pain Rating Scale. Average pain scores significantly dropped by 49 percent, total blood buffering capacity was significantly improved, and blood pH increased. The conclusion: an unbalanced pH level may contribute to the symptoms of low back pain.

To lower your stress level, which will help put your pH reading in the normal range, you may want to try deep-breathing exercises and eating alkaline foods or whatever type of relaxation technique works for you. Moderate exercise - even walking 10 minutes a day - can also go a long way toward reducing stress and restoring balance, the key to good health....

Clearly this blood pH level issue is literally CENTRAL to improving our health and dealing with almost any type of pain. But working to reduce our mental stress levels, change stressful personal circumstances, cut out harmful foods and exposure to toxic chemicals in everyday life - all of which acidify our bodies nonstop - isn't all that easy or a quick fix. I'm sure you'd agree we'd do well with some help to restore our inner balance fast, stopping even back pain and sciatic nerve pain cold so you don't continue suffering while making those long-term changes.

Where can you get that help? In my humble opinion, right here with Heal-n-Soothe - Mother Nature's Feel Good Formula that goes straight to the source of the pain symptoms to give the pain relief you need to live a normal life again. Here's what Robert English from Queensland, Australia had to say about this supplement:

"I experienced wonderful relief from my pain the very first day I used your system. It worked so well I told some friends about it and they too have gotten relief. I've had back pain for 20 years and now it's gone... it's amazing!"

What is Inflammation and How Does It Cause Pain?

Inflammation is a response from your immune system in response to an irritant.

For example, if you sprain your ankle, your immune system creates a protein called a Circulating Immune Complex (CIC for short).

The CIC travels down to the injured ankle and causes pain and swelling.

The pain you feel is to inform you of the injury or damage. And the swelling is protective as it prevents you from moving it and causing more irritation.

This is also your body's way of running to the problem with fresh blood, antibodies and vital cells in order to begin healing and repairing the damage.

Then what normally happens is our bodies produce proteolytic enzymes which counteract the inflammation, and things return to normal. That's why a sprained ankle as a young child heals within a few weeks at most, but can take six weeks or more for an adult of say 45.

The problem is, after around age 25, our production of these enzymes drops off almost completely so there is nothing to tell the body to stop the inflammation. These enzymes are also responsible for cleaning the blood, fighting off viral and bacterial infections and breaking down excess fibrin (scar tissue).

In addition to the decrease in production of proteolytic enzymes, there are also numerous other things that contribute to the build up of inflammation in our bodies.

Here is just a short list of factors that contribute to inflammation:

  • Un-addressed pain and injuries
  • Toxins and chemicals in our air, water and food
  • Poor nutritional habits
  • Bacterial or viral infections
  • Allergies
  • Prescription medications
  • Auto-immune diseases
  • Negative mental and emotional stress

Over time, inflammation continues to increase in our bodies causing damage to all of the tissues and organs, often without us even knowing it's happening.
If inflammation is not controlled and the body continually fights this battle, symptoms of chronic inflammation can show itself as arthritis, colitis, chronic fatigue, sinusitis, cataracts, chronic pain, hair loss heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's and dozens of other ailments and conditions.

Inflammation is what slowly kills us.

More and more research is coming out now that proves this. For example, here's a quote from a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine: "there is convincing evidence that inflammation is strongly linked to heart attacks and stroke."

And in another study published in The Annals of Neurology, the researchers concluded, "inflammation is linked to Alzheimer's and other dementing diseases." And a recent Harvard study found that "half of all heart attacks are caused by inflammation".

We know that reducing inflammation is critical to eliminating pain and preventing disease and illness, but how do you do it safely and naturally?

Here are just some of the things you can do:

  • Make dietary changes - be sure to read Dr Chilton's book "Win the War Within"
  • Learn how to eliminate negative emotional stress
  • Minimize the amount of junk that enters your body - and not just food but toxins and other chemicals
  • Replace lost proteolytic enzymes with supplementation
Remember, the key is to keep in inflammation under control because it does far more than just cause swelling and pain.
