How Mindfulness Practice Reduces Pain

How Mindfulness Reduces PainPain is regulated by our nervous system. Our brain alerts us of the pain we feel and it strives to maintain balance in the body. Stress disrupts the brain’s ability to deal with pain signals. Dr. Steven Stanos, medical director of the Center for Pain Management at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, stated, “The brain is always trying to inhibit pain signals. But if you're stressed, simply put, the brain's ability to filter these pain signals is affected in a bad way and pain can be increased.” Research shows that even the process of thinking about something stressful immediately causes increased tension in the back muscles. This tension aggravates any underlying conditions that you may have.

Mindfulness significantly reduces stress levels, anxiety, and feelings of depression. Researchers conducted a study in which participants were placed in an 8-week mindfulness-based stress reduction group. When participants finished this training, scans revealed that in troubling situations they had less neural activity and responses. This means that there wasn’t a large release of stress hormones, leading researchers to the conclusion that mindfulness teaches strategies that help the brain regulate and react to an emotional situation with less stress, thus helping decrease pain levels.

But when some people think of mindfulness exercises, they envision someone sitting around chanting mantras or listening to a recording that tells them to envision certain things. This idea is unappealing to many individuals and they decide that practicing mindfulness is not for them.

This is understandable because it can be difficult to make yourself sit around and listen to a voice telling you to imagine that you are floating on water. However, practicing mindfulness doesn’t have to be like this.

How Magnesium Relieves Pain

How Magnesium Helps Relieve PainMagnesium is an essential mineral that our bodies need for over 600 cellular processes. Our bodies do not manufacture magnesium; the foods we eat supply the body with magnesium. Researchers believe that some of our conventionally grown foods are deficient in magnesium, which is due to the soil being depleted of certain nutrients. Many researchers recommend that we choose organically grown vegetables since many organic growers replace the nutrients lost through farming, by properly amending the soil.

Many functions in the body rely on Magnesium. It helps to maintain the proper function of the central nervous system and low levels can be associated with changes in brain function and mood. Low magnesium levels are commonly found in people with Alzheimer’s, bipolar disorder, depression, and Autism. People who experience migraine headaches are often found to have low levels of magnesium as well.

Our immune system relies on magnesium to keep us healthy. Low levels of magnesium are associated with a poorly functioning immune system. This is partly because viruses and bacteria are stressors for the body, and when the body is under stress it uses more magnesium. Physical and emotional stress is very common in our modern lives. When we are under stress, the body uses more magnesium to help our minds and bodies cope. This depletes our magnesium stores and lowers our immune system.

The proper function of our muscles is dependent on adequate levels of magnesium. Often people with a low magnesium level will experience muscle cramps, abnormal heart rhythms, and more. Low levels of magnesium affect our muscles’ ability to relax and the body’s pain levels. Pain sufferers are often advised to try increasing their intake of magnesium to see whether it helps to reduce their pain levels.

Magnesium and Pain

Pain in the body is most often caused by inflammation. Inflammation is a sign that something is not functioning well in the body, or that the body is dealing with a lot of emotional or physical stress.
Magnesium plays a key role in controlling the level of inflammation in our bodies since it regulates so many cell functions.

Nature's Ingredient: Arnica Montana

Arnica Montana for Pain ReliefArnica Montana is a yellow mountain daisy straight from nature’s pharmacy. In other words, it has been used as an herbal medicine for centuries to combat various types of pain. Some include swelling, bruising, injuries, arthritis, and chronic pain relief.

Swelling is our body’s natural response to injury and believe it or not, one of the first signs of healing. This is due to your blood pooling at the sight of the damage and beginning to repair itself. This is often where someone would choose to take some kind of over-the-counter painkiller like ibuprofen, for example. While these pills were formulated to reduce the swelling and to alleviate some of the pain associated with it, they do leave out a huge component the healing process: treating the underlying cause of the pain. This is where Arnica Montana differs. Arnica decreases the overall healing time and inflammation by increasing circulation at the site and white blood cell activity. Therefore, the main goal of stimulating the body’s healing process is fulfilled by Arnica versus simply temporarily minimizing pain and getting the puffiness down.

Arnica is also a safe alternative for pain relief due to arthritis. (Click Here) to Continue Reading

How Positive Thinking Reduces Pain

How Positive Thinking Reduces PainHave you ever heard of the phrase mind over matter? The main premise behind the popular saying is that our minds, composed of our thoughts, feelings and emotions, have a big influence on our physical bodies and external environment. A different way of explaining this phenomenon is the “mind-body connection,” or in some cases, “the placebo effect.” This subject is widely studied, especially in the area of chronic pain. All bodies of research point to a really incredible outcome: positive thinking can improve pain symptoms. On the flip side, negative thinking can contribute to worsening pain or at least inhibiting one’s ability to cope with it.
                        
A clinical psychologist, Nicola Turner, recognizes that the medical profession often creates a disconnection between one’s physical pain and mental patterns. She explains, “we’ve been conditioned to separate physical and emotional problems when in fact you can’t have the mind without the body.” This idea brings attention to the integration of cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, with physical therapy. CBT is regularly used as a treatment for an array of mental health issues such as anxiety, stress management, and even phobias. Interestingly enough, Warwick University conducted a study in 2010 on patients with severe back pain and concluded that those who combined their standard treatment with CBT showed double the improvement in pain versus those who received the physiotherapy, osteopathy, or acupuncture alone.

Growing Pains You have probably heard the term “growing pains,” but did you know that many health experts say that this type of pain isn’t caused by a growth spurt? While a clear cause of growing pains has yet to be established, professionals believe that it is just soreness that occurs from being an active child.

7 Ways to Be More Active Every Day

7 Ways to Be More Active in Every Day LifeExercise doesn't have to cost a fortune! Staying active doesn't even need to cost you a dime when you realize it isn't crucial to have a gym membership, a bunch of exercise equipment, or a professional who can formulate plans for you. Physical activity also doesn't have to take up all of your time. We are busy people, right? We can’t quit our day jobs or skip out on plans with loved ones just so we can get some activity in our life. Did you know that there are some ways to be active without going to a gym or going for a run? Here are 7 easy ways to sneak some extra fitness into your day:

Take the Stairs

Have you noticed that there are exercise machines that are made to simulate stairs? That's proof enough that it's a good workout! Skip the elevator and even the escalators. Walking, even leisurely, up the stairs is a mini workout that's convenient and often we do not have to change our routines at all to implement it.

Stand Up

Sounds simple, right? It is! While you're working, for example, try to stand more than you're sitting. Standing desks are a huge plus in this situation, but if that is not applicable to your environment, plan to take standing breaks. Shoot for getting up and standing for at least 5 minutes every hour or so. Better yet, you could make a point to stand up whenever you're on the phone. This little change, especially once it becomes a habit, makes a difference!
