CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT: The Natural Way

naturalpainrelief

Chronic pain is a constant companion to many people.  My mother suffered from chronic sciatic pain for many years.  The treatment plan included the traditional pain management therapies of Tylenol (various dosages) and eventually cortisone injections.  Cortisone is a corticosteroid medication that is very effective at decreasing pain and inflammation in joints and other structures in the body. Research has shown that corticosteroid medications can cause bone loss and result in osteoporosis if taken orally or intravenously (IV) in high doses or for long periods. My mom is now 91 and still on many synthetic pain medications for chronic pain and has serious osteoporosis.  Once a woman of tall stature, my mom is now completely stooped over unable to straighten up.

Although I have had periods of extreme pain in my life I am blessed that I do not regularly suffer from chronic pain. Recently I suffered from pain due to whiplash and I have one sacroiliac joint that sometimes screams at me with pain when I do heavy lifting. As a holistic wellness practitioner I work with many clients who have or have had chronic pain periods in their lives. Their goal, which is the same as mine, is to find pain relief solutions that are free of the harmful, unwanted side effects and that result in more serious challenges in the future like osteoporosis.

There are many natural pain management strategies available which are more ‘liver friendly’ as well as environmentally friendly; the waste from potent medications inevitably ends up going down the drain and into the environment. I use a combination of natural pain relief strategies which include energy therapies, visualization, meditation, massage and essential oil therapy and recommend these to my clients.

I was introduced to doterra essential oils several years ago and was amazed at the therapeutic properties they provided. Not only are they a great natural pain relief choice, but unlike traditional pain medications, they promote healing – an ultimate bonus. Because they are all natural they will not hurt the environment. Some essential oils are adulterated, which means other unknown oils have been added to them. doterra essential oils are pure therapeutic grade, which is why they are the oils that I use and recommend.

CLIENT FEEDBACK: Natural essential oil pain management recipes that have worked for my clients and my pain challenges 

  • Marjoram which has muscle relaxant properties applied full strength topically to the area of pain provided a topical anesthetic type of relief.  Applied in layers it provided lasting relief.
  • Marjoram taken internally with frankincense which has anti-inflammatory properties (6 drops each) every three to four hours provided relief equivalent to Tylenol 3 without unwanted side effects. Some clients put the drops in capsules others put the drops in water. This combination provided one client with broken bones relief equivalent to the Tylenol 3 she was taking without the unwanted side effects. This was my ‘go to’ for my whiplash pain which also rippled down my spine to my sacrum.
  • A roller bottle blend of helichrysum, lavender, marjoram and roman chamomile used topically helped with nerve pain.
  • Peppermint or wintergreen applied topically to the temples and back of the neck provided almost instant headache pain relief.
  • Wintergreen applied to the sacroiliac joint provided pain relief and the added bonus of bone healing and regeneration – great  for osteoporosis prevention which can happen at joints with chronic stress and strain.
  • A combination (3 drops each) of vetiver, marjoram and lemon taken internally (in a veggie capsule) provided pain relief as an alternative to Tylenol (500 mg).
  • A combination of frankincense, marjoram and lemongrass (20 drops each in a roller bottle topped up with FCO) used topically provided pain relief.
  • Deep blue (30 drops in a roller bottle topped up with FCO) which is a combination of wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, ylang ylang, helichrysum, blue Tansy, blue chamomile, and osmanthus provided instant relief when applied topically. It also comes in a cream rub.
  • Copaiba is the newest doterra oils that is providing amazing pain relief results for many.  You can listen to the information about why this essential oil is so effective in managing pain at

Every person’s pain is different and every person reacts differently to pain and pain remedies, synthetic and natural.  Finding the ‘right fit’ for your pain takes some tweaking. The same is true for using essential oils for pain management. The preceding information is from client feedback and also my personal experience.  What works for you may be different. If you would like to try essential oil therapy for pain management contact me at www.mydoterra.com/elisbethlhines and I can guide you. Follow ‘My Green Medicine Cabinet’ to learn what essential oils I use for symptom relief and healing.

SUPER BUG READY? Keep Your Immune System Prepared

superbugs-info

Last night’s news report about nine people dying in London, Ontario due to Strep A was disturbing. Not worried? Is it really a threat? Watch the Time Health video below by By Alice Park and Lon Tweeten May 5, 2017 and find out.

 

Every day we are exposed to many viruses and bacteria. A healthy properly working immune system is your best defense against the super bugs and viruses out there. There are many factors that can interfere with the body’s natural ongoing immunosurveillance and immunoresponse. Synthetic chemicals, heavy metals and body pollution are just a few of the potential interfering concerns. They can interfere with the natural body communication required for correct immunosurveillance and immunoresponse. Stress is also a serious detriment to a healthy, accurate immune response.

Antibiotic resistance is an ongoing concern in the health care system. A recent post in The Journal of Infectious Diseases & Preventive Medicine, titled Essential Oils and Future Antibiotics: New Weapons against Emerging ‘Superbugs’? offers hope for the fight against superbugs.

According to the Journal article:

Emerging evidence has shown that many essential oils have both non-specific and specific mechanisms of action which varies based on the relative abundance and chemical composition of the components. Elucidation of the mechanism of action of these compounds may enable identification of new antibiotic targets and exploitation of novel biochemical pathways; pathways not currently targeted by existing antibiotics. Additionally, combination of existing drugs with essential oils and/or components may provide an alternative approach to combat emerging drug resistance. Since antibiotic resistance is currently outpacing research and development to find new drugs, humanity is facing a return to the ‘pre-antibiotic era’. Perhaps the remedies of the past combined with scientific study may provide the antibiotics of tomorrow.”

In summary, essential oil therapy has a promising future to protect you against super bugs.  Learning about the immune protecting properties of essential oils and incorporating them into your health regime to be prepared is a great defense.

On guard spritz Green gift pack

doTerra On Guard is my ‘go to’ for immune support and protection. I take it internally, a few drops in water, especially when I make visits to my mother in the nursing home. I have a spritz bottle that I keep in my purse to spray my hands after contact with shopping carts and other potential contact threats. Adding a few drops of On Guard to my home made foaming hand sanitizer ensures protection for me and my visitors.  Diffusing a few drops of On Guard in combination with Wild Orange is a delightful morning ritual. My cold and flu remedy (in the picture above) have a combination of On Guard, Tea Tree and Oregano – a great protection and recovery remedy.

My immune support and protection regime would not be complete without addressing the ‘stress factor’. In times of stress I add stress busting essential oils internally, topically and in my diffuser. My ‘go to’ stress busters include the products below. Get yours at www.mydoterra.com/elisabethlhines.

GREEN GIFTING: Healthy For You and Environmentally Friendly

Green gift pack  Green Gift Pack3

Last night’s news story about Canada’s garbage crisis refocused my already overwhelming concerns about the amount of waste that we as a generation produce on a daily basis.  I am a big fan of reduce, reuse and recycle, and reducing my environmental footprint. Green gifting, especially with essential oil products, provides an opportunity to use natural symptom relief and natural cleaning options.  Add labels with the recipes you used and recipients can refill the bottles instead of going back to the store to buy more symptom relief and cleaning solutions in new packaging. I am concerned about the world of garbage we are leaving behind for our grandchildren and I know many people are. Every synthetic symptom relief and synthetic cleaning product we use eventually ends up affecting the environment and then it’s inhabitants, animal and human – it’s an unhealthy circle that we have the power to change.

Many people already have a good supply of essential oils at home and when Christmas comes they are shopping for gifts for friends, family, teachers, co-workers and as hostess gifts; wondering what to get.  If you haven’t yet taken the essential oils plunge there are many great November specials to take advantage of to get you started at www.mydoterra.com/elisabethlhines. Giving a ‘green gift’ that is healthy for your recipient and environmentally friendly tells them that you really care about both. It is also a great activity to do with your children or grandchildren. Invite some friends over and have a DIY green gifting make and take!
