Chronic Pain Management for Better Business Management
Do you deal with chronic pain, does it impact the way you work and live? It is time to look into alternative healing modalities.
Pain is something that all people experience from time to time, and some people experience pain all the time. There are many ways to deal with pain, but most end up resorting to the use of over-the-counter or prescription medication designed to remove or mask the symptoms. When trying to run a business you want your pain to be the very last thing you have to think about or devote time to, but without that time and devotion you may be causing additional issues.
Trying to deal with chronic pain when also trying to start or run a business can be a daunting task. As an entrepreneur we learn to push through, no matter what, we develop a thick skin and just keep moving forward at any cost. But for many of us who endure the fatigue and depletion of chronic pain we need to consider what the true cost really is. The result of trying to balance all that we often take on is that our home, children and spouse usually end up getting the smallest portion that we have to give. Which ends up creating guilt, thus more stress - which is a huge pain increase marker, so as the pain increases so does the guilt and you end up on a never ending cycle.
With the diagnosis of pain in conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigues Syndrom, arthritis and others at a all time high, and totally out of control in the Northern part of the United States and all over Canada we need to look at the over all effect on the businesses and families who deal with these conditions.
There are many ways to manage pain that does not involve taking medication. Some suggestions involve coaching with a person who knows and understands the limitations of the condition. They can often give advise based on experience. Another well developed alternative is Bio-Feedback, which helps you learn to control your mind so that it doesn't go to the thought of the pain as often. Most people find that it feels like there is less pain when the mind is not aware tht it is there, although the question of how it deals with fatigue is still not answered to everyone's satisfaction.
Energy Medicine is another wonderful alternative. The human body is an energy system where energy flows much like water. In the body's energy system pain is caused by blockages of energy flow within the system; much like a blockage of the pipes that bring water to your kitchen sink. Without proper flow, you don't get the desired outcome. The energy blockages are caused by inflammation. The best way to remove a blockage of the pipes in your kitchen sink is to call a plumber, and the best way to remove a blockage in your internal energy system is to call an Energy Medicine Practitioner. Energy Medicine is known by many modalities such as: acupuncture, acupressure, reiki, matrix energetics, healing touch, body talk, and others.
There is a technology used to treat pain and inflammation that is widely misunderstood, and sadly under utilized: it's called Far-infrared. Far-Infrared has been used in scientific and military development since the mid-1800's, yet only recently was it discovered that it is truly an element that both humans and animals need in order to be truly healthy.
Infrared is light that is naturally produced by the sun and by every living being on the earth, and by the earth itself. Far-Infrared is the farthest wave length of the infrared waves and is a form of thermal energy which means the body detects the wave as heat, even though it is actually a light wave.
As a living being you produce your own infrared wave that can be seen as a variable colored field using special photography. To use far-infrared as a therapeutic source you need a natural source generator of the far-infrared light wave, there are many available in the form of saunas, clothing and mats which allow your body to detect the light ray as heat once the rays penetrate into your skin and cells.
Far-Infrared light should not be confused with ultraviolet light which causes sunburn and damaged skin. Far-Infrared does not cause sunburn or skin damage, it is a much needed natural element that helps human cells be in better health and helps them produce enzymes needed for overall pain management and health. While far-infrared treatments are medically recognized to treat inflammation and pain it is still difficult to find a medical professional who understands the use of far-infrared therapy. Most physicians do not know there are now FDA approved medical devices available for home use to treat pain, fatigue and inflammation.
The name far-infrared means “below red.” It works to relieve body pain when the thermal ray penetrates the body going deep into the cells where it is detected as soothing, relaxing heat that reduces inflammation, naturally elevates heart rates (without raising blood pressure) improves blood circulation, activates enzyme production and helps you feel better in many ways.
One such medical devise for home use is the Amethyst Bio-Mat, the far-infrared producing device is FDA Approved to treat the pain, fatigue and stiffness associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. It has helped many professionals and entrepreneurs take their life back from the brink of pain and fatigue. It helped me and virtually gave me back my life.
Don't let chronic pain slow you down or stand in your way. You have plans for your life and they are yours to achieve. Investigate the alternative ways to deal with pain management and consider the use of Far-infrared in your healing protocol.
