Chronic pain affects an estimated 90 million Americans. Its causes can stem from any number of medical conditions or as a result of an injury. Some people suffer even when no specific physical cause can be found. Traditional pain medications often serve the symptoms, but with serious side effects on the long-term basis, during which chronic pain tends to persist and is usually associated with a degenerative or chronic pathological process such as arthritis. However, sometimes the cause of the pain is elusive.
Those of us that have chronic pain know, it can suck the life right out of you and everyone around you!
Why Use Herbs for Pain Management?
Herbal medicine has been around for thousands of years. Herbalism is the ancient tradition of studying and using herbs for their healing properties. The term 'herb' refers to all plant parts, including the stems, leaves, fruit, flowers, roots, bark, seeds and essential oils (Aromatherapy)
Essential Oils whether administered topically or through inhalation, can help eliminate the need for medication or enable a reduction of use. When used appropriately, and the oils are used in the correct amounts, no harmful effects are likely to occur, with the exception of possible hypersensitivity to certain fragrances or an allergic reaction when an oil is massaged into the skin.
Through inhalation the smell receptors in the nose respond to the scents of the essential oils, sending chemical messages through the nervous system to the brain’s limbic system—the part of the brain involved in memory and emotions.
