“My mother has been suffering from a giant headache for at least 10 weeks. Her doctors treated her for a sinus infect (which she didn’t have) and allergies (which she doesn’t have). At home, we have tried every headache medicine and every home remedy, from inhaling vinegar to foot rubs. I finally had an idea that maybe her arthritis had moved up into her spine so I went to CVS and found a bottle of Myomega. This morning I rubbed it over her shoulders and neck and the relief was instant.”

Capsaicin-Hottest new pain reliever?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2009 by myomegapain

If you’ve ever eaten spicy food then you’ve encountered Capsaicin. This incredible substance is not just a flavor-booster, though. It has also been shown to relieve muscle aches, joint pain, cramps, and the pain associated with arthritis when applied topically.

Israeli scientists are finding that it has even GREATER potential than we originally thought. “The holy grail of any local anesthetic treatment is to stop pain without causing any other effects,” says Dr. Alexander Binshtok of Tel Aviv University’s Sackler School of Medicine. This goal may actually be achieved with the use of Capsaicin!

By joining Capsaicin with a derivative of Lidocaine, doctors may be able to target pain receptors selectively and reduce the risks that come with anesthesia. This hot new medicine may replace the need for epidurals, which can actually complicate deliveries.

With millions of Americans suffering from chronic pain, this new discovery may be the answer to the perfect anesthetic. One that can target pain directly without side effects. This discovery also makes us realize just how valuable and effective Capsaicin is in relation to pain management. To experience the pain-relieving power of Capsaicin try MyOmega™ Penetrating Heat Therapy Cream with Capsaicin. Not only does it impart a comforting warming sensation, it actually keeps pain from returning when used regularly over time. Get it while it’s hot!

Do you suffer from chronic pain?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2009 by myomegapain

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.

Try MyOmega™ Penetrating Heat Therapy Cream, a Capsaicin-based topical warming pain reliever that soothes away muscle and joint pain while helping you reach your long-term pain management goals. This advanced formula works quickly to relieve joint pain, muscle aches, cramps and the pain associated with arthritis. It also features timed-release IcePearls™, a soothing cooling complex designed to last up to 6 hours. Make it a part of your pain management plan today.
