Could it be that pain can actually be your friend?
That may sound a little crazy to many of you because pain obviously hurts. No one likes pain….”I just wish it would go away!”.
Are you destined to have worsening pain for life? Yikes, there’s a nasty thought. Well, on further examination, maybe we should think a little deeper and ask ourselves what it is telling us. If you do, you will realize that pain now can be your best friend. It can save you from a life of pain later.
It is simply telling us that something is not right in your body and that you should do something about it before it becomes tomorrow’s deterioration, arthritis, ulcer, heart attack or cancer.
Pain is your signal that change is required!
So, what change is your pain demanding?
We have been trained to live with, hide or ignore pain and get on with things. We are told that “It’s unfortunate”, “part of aging”, “bad luck”!
Over the counter sales of pain killing medications such as aspirin, acetaminophen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and many others run in the billions of dollars. Unfortunately, by taking them, you are falling into a trap.
These temporary symptom relieving pills, these quick fixes, can make you feel better for a while, but you are almost certainly setting the stage for more serious long term health problems further down the road.
You are not making the change that your body is asking for. An ostrich with his head firmly buried in the sand springs to mind. Pain? Out of sight….out of mind! Until later!
Next time you or a loved one experiences pain, don’t just cover it up.
