3 Best Ways Reduce Pain, Naturally!
Published on June 2, 2020
A few things happens with aging
There are lots of things I dislike (more like HATE!) about getting older, such as
- Getting wrinkles
- Losing head hair
- Memory problems
- Less energy
- And PAIN!
Ironically, all the above are linked to ONE primary cause!
In fact, most aging and even diseases, are ALL linked to this ONE “problem” in the body - which I’ll get to in a minute.
However, the pain is what I’m going to focus on today because it’s a constant reminder and it only seems to get worse as we get older.
What should I do?
For me, the shoulder problems, wrist, knee and back pain affect every aspect of my life.
And not just physically, but also emotionally.
In the car, airplanes, etc. - after a few hours, my back pain and herniated discs flare up and it lasts for hours or even days.
Sitting behind the computer, the back and wrist/hand pain makes working much harder.
And this is the worst, I can’t do a lot of the exercises I used to because shoulder, knee and back pain.
But okay, enough with the complaining...
What’s The Cause Of Pain?
Before focusing on the solution, we first need to know what the REAL cause of pain is and that’s, inflammation!
And simply stated, inflammation is an auto-immune response. It’s your body’s way of fighting against things that “harm it” - such as infections, injuries and toxins.
But these are short term issues…
Almost all pain is a long-term problem due to CHRONIC inflammation!...
And the 3 primary causes of chronic inflammation are
As we get older and our good, “anti-aging hormones” decline, and our body can’t fight inflammation like it used to.
Aging also causes a major drop in stem cells, which are one of your body’s primary “anti-inflammatory” substances.
In fact, scientists call this “inflammaging”!
And of course, the “wrong” life-style (diet, exercise, stress, lack of supplements, etc.) makes all of this MUCH WORSE!
BOTTOM LINE: We need to take action NOW, because things will only get worse as we get older.
So What’s The Best Solution?
Let’s get right to the good stuff, how to fix pain by reducing inflammation.
I’ll expand on the below in more detail in future articles, but let me give you the BEST SOLUTIONS so you can implement them right away and start getting the best results and most benefits.
DIET (DON’t do)
Let’s keep it simple - do’s and don’ts:
SUGARS – this includes table sugar, syrups, juices, and alcohol. This doesn’t include whole fruits.
ALCOHOL – I consider alcohol sugar. Wine is grape juice. Alcohol itself causes inflammation throughout the body, starting in the liver and your brain. Sure, a little may reduce it in some studies – but long-term it causes many other negatives.
BAD FATS – this is fake, artificial hydrogenated trans fats. As well as vegetable and seed oils high in omega 6 fats. Foods that typically contain these fats are french fries and fried fast foods, many packaged foods, pastries.
REFINED CARBOHYDRATES – not all carbs are bad. Unfortunately, many of the good tasting ones are, such as candy, snack foods, bread, pasta, pastries, most cereals, and many packaged foods.
PROCESSED PROTEINS – This is one of the worst that most people never think about. Again, all the good tasting stuff like sausage, hot dogs, bacon, ham, smoked meats, jerky, and so forth. Basically, “fake” protein. Oh, I almost forgot one of the worst proteins of all – DAIRY!
VEGETABLES: Steamed broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, etc.
FRUIT: Specifically deeply colored berries, grapes and cherries (NO juice)
HIGHT-FAT FRUITS: Avocados and olives
HEALTHY FATS: Olive, macadamia nut, coconut, and fish oil
FATTY FISH: Salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, and anchovies
NUTS: Almonds, walnuts, and macadamia nuts
PEPPERS: Bell peppers and chili peppers (remove the skin and seeds as they’re inflammatory)
SPICES: Turmeric, ginger, fenugreek, cinnamon, etc. More on this in a minute.
TEA: Green tea
Basically, you want a:
Again, let’s keep it simple! There are basically two forms of exercise, aerobic (cardiovascular) and anaerobic (resistance exercise).AEROBIC
Things like long-distance running and cycling and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), induce high levels of chronic inflammation and elevated stress hormones, such as cortisol.AEROBIC
I think brisk walking outside is the best. Also using a rebounder is great, especially if you don’t feel like going outside for whatever reason. Breathing hard, but still being able to have a conversation.ANAEROBIC
The worst is CrossFit and weight lifting where you’re constantly going to failure and beyond, with heavyweights and low reps. Too much volume and intensity cause chronic inflammation.ANAEROBIC
Cycle your workouts, keep the reps 10-15 and don’t always go to “failure”. Make sure you take off 2-3x weekly. Feel the muscle and get a good pump, it heals the muscle.
Yup, stress is a major problem and the reason is because of inflammation and the increase in negative stress hormones such as cortisol (which ALSO causes inflammation).
This topic is too important and complicated and I’ll devote an entire article just for this topic.
However, the #1 thing you can do to manage stress is to get better and deeper sleep!
And I’ve got 3 quick tips for this:
Go to bed before midnight
Reduce bright lights an hour before bed (dim lights, block blue-light from electronic devices)
Keep the same sleep scheduled nightly (go to bed & wake up the same time)
The right supplements - herbs, minerals and amino acids -- will have drug-like positive effects, but without the negatives.
Thus, reducing inflammation and pain through-out your entire body… and keeping you younger and healthier.
Unfortunately, most supplements don’t work and are total scams.
However, there are a few that are clinically proven to work!
- Turmeric/Curcumin Extract (make sure it’s 95% and a blend of 3 different forms) [1-6]
- Ginger Extract (5% gingerols extract) [7-9]
- AprèsFlex® Boswellia Serrata (65% extract) [10-12]
- Green Tea Extract (Theaflavin) (98% poly, 50% EGCG)
- White Willow Bark (salicin) 25% salicylic acid 
- Pycnogenol® (pine bark extract; 97% Extract; 65% procyanidins) [14-18]
- Astragin® Astragalus 
- White Willow Bark (salicin) 25% salicylic acid 
- Trans-Resveratrol (50% Extract; Japanese knotweed) [20-29]
- Uncaria Tomentosa (cat’s claw; 10:1 concentration) [30-33]
- Quercetin Phytosome Extract [34-43]
- PARACTIN® Andrographis (10:1 concentration) [44-46]
The reason I mention all of these ingredients is because they each “attack” inflammation through different mechanisms and “pathways”.
Of course, taking each of these ingredients is going to be a hassle, time consuming and very expensive.
Inflame & Pain Relief
However, the good news is that the natural supplement called Inflame & Pain Relief, contains all of these ingredients in ONE pill.
Most importantly, it helps lower the 14 primary inflammatory and pain triggers in the body!
