Do you suffer from chronic pain?

Chronic pain is very different from acute pain. While acute pain is your body’s way of alerting you to a possible injury, chronic pain is usually a result of past damage. It is persistent and can last for months, weeks or even years. Some causes include arthritis, past injuries or tissue damage, cancer, or certain neurological diseases.

If you suffer from chronic pain, you doctor may recommend oral medications, acupuncture, or even surgery. There are many alternative ways to help with your pain management. Some include psychotherapy, meditation, improved sleep and behavior modification. Studies have shown that a lack of sleep can lower your threshold for pain by 24%*. Unfortunately, chronic pain often causes a lack of sleep, leading to a seemingly endless cycle that is difficult to manage.

The Power of Topical Analgesics

The problem with oral drugs like opioids or narcotic analgesics is that your body builds up a tolerance, and you can become addicted. It is not ideal for long-term pain management. Unlike opioids, topical analgesics are FDA approved, non-addictive and can actually work better over time. Capsaicin has been shown to deplete Substance P, the chemical in your body that signals your brain that you are in pain. When used regularly, this chemical is gradually diminished and you will actually experience less pain over time.

  1. Omega-3’s have anti-inflammatory properties, so I’d bet that this product works pretty well.
