Pain Fighting Food…

Pain Fighting Food…..We’ave all got pain it is in lesser or greater degrees…Some of us may use medication…However many of us do not due to our bodies intolerance of meds or because we choose not to…I am a mixture of both…I am though a true follower and practitioner of the natural ways of healing i do believe that natural and modern medicine can work in symmetry for the benefit of many…

When my body imploded i qualified in Holistic Nutrition And Herbalism…Both of which have predominantly become my medicine…The knowledge i gained and have continued to gain has helped me enormously in managing my pain and symptoms…Pretty much all modern medicine has come form “The doctrine of signatures” ….

“The doctrine of signatures, dating from the time of Dioscorides and Galen, states that herbs resembling various parts of the body can be used by herbalists to treat ailments of those body parts.” (Wikipedia)
Unfortunately the original pure herb is more often than not now replaced by the mass produced manufactured synthetic equivalent…As humans we are not as a rule made up of genetically produced chemicals…So to put chemicals in causes our bodies extra work in detoxing them…However i do believe everything has its place…But i also believe that there has to be balance…
Pain relieving nutrition is plentiful and varied and what works for one person may not work for another…Do your research…Try things out…Check with the clinicians that are looking after you if you are worried about making changes…Find out about and understand your medication…If you feel changes are needed talk to your Dr, Consultant, Therapist…Knowledge is a powerful weapon…Explore and be open to new ideas…We have been using the natural healing ways for centuries so there must be something in it…NL x
“To blindly follow is to decide not to know yourself…We are our own best experts…If we are honest with ourselves then we are able to make the best choices for us”NL x
