Natural Remedies for chronic pain suffers that really work!

What a pain in the neck, do I have to live like this? 

Are their natural remedies for chronic pain & do they work? As an anesthetist I specialize in pain relief for my patients, and more specifically relief using natural supplements as an adjunct to prescribed medication. 

   All prescribed medications we currently use come from a natural source. Una de gato, cat's claw, is where tylenol was derived from. Tylenol works by blocking the pain signals in the brain but it is associated with liver dysfunction if used in excess. Unlike narcotics, tylenol has no dependency associated with it.

   Opium is how we derived morphine, dilaudid, ect. These pain killers function at the mu-receptor, the pain hub of the central nervous sytem. And again are affiliated with side effects including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, blood pressure, and cardiac abnormalities.

   There are other principles that are extremely effective and natural. All of the following fuction via neuromodulation. Neuromodulation is the bodies ability to trick the neuronal connection thus distracting it from the problem. When you get hurt the first response is you run it. The rubbing changes temperature, pressure, and touch receptors which are in close proximity to pain receptors and tells your body I must not be in that much pain because I am receiving other signals that distract the brain from the inital signal, pain. Essential oils that have a menthol component like peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, and camphor all facilitate this Neuromodulation when rubbed at the source. These work particularly well for back pain. This is why icey hot, TENS units, compression clothing, and back braces work.

  Using the concept of Neuromodulation, I invented the No Mo Nausea Band. The first and only natural way to stop headaches and migraines instantly using 3 natural principles: acupressure, aromatherapy, and transdermal peppermint oil. The fastest way to the brain is thru the nose, and is why it functions as a calcium channel blocker to the vasculature and increases oxygenation. Transdermal peppermint oil absorption helps increase gastromotility and decreases the nausea sensation often experienced by headache sufferers. Acupressure at the P6 point of the human wrist provided electrical stimulation to the median nerve increases beta endorphins. These happy hormones help shorten the duration of the migraine and increase the onset of another one. Ultimately the No Mo Nausea band provides a change in temperature, pressure, and touch receptors to neuromodulate the brain into not having a headache or nausea.

The cause of this disease is unknown but it is an inflammatory type of arthritis which can destroy affected joints, particularly the wrists. Some drugs used to treat this disease include: steroids, biological response modifiers, etc. However, the use of such medications can cause side effects such as nausea and vomiting.

Heart Attack, Chronic Chest Pain, & Angina: What's the Difference?

No pain, just gain!

Angina is a term used for chest pain. It is caused by reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. People who experience angina usually have squeezing, pressure, heaviness, tightness or pain in their chest. Angina is a symptom of coronary artery disease and can be a recurring problem or sudden, acute health concern. Symptoms include: chest pain or discomfort, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea, etc. A heart attack, also known as a myocardial infarction, is when due to a lack of oxygen a portion of the heart muscle dies or just stops working.  

Most people with frequent angina are put on high blood pressure medication and given Nitroglycerin, a vasodilator to get more oxygen to parts of the heart that needs it. The most common side effect of angina and its prescription medication is nausea and vomiting? Did you know that peppermint contains a natural calcium channel blocking activity? The No Mo Nausea Band uses acupressure at P6 to target all 4 different receptors in the puke center of the brain to stop nausea before it starts. The peppermint aromatherapy smell gives instant nausea relief due to the direct pathway to the brain.

Reason #122 Addisonian crisis

Cortisol is an important hormone produced by the adrenal glands that plays an important role in stress response, bone health, immune response, and the break-down of food. Decreased levels of cortisol can cause a life-threatening condition called, Addisonian crisis. Some of the major symptoms include nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting. The #nomonausea band uses a combination of acupressure to target receptors in the brain to stop nausea before it starts, and peppermint aromatherapy to reduce upset stomachs and prevent puking.

Reason # 120 Ketoacidosis

Ketoacidosis, also known as diabetic ketoacidosis or DKA, is a condition typically found in type 1 diabetics where the body produces high levels of ketones in the urine. When the body doesn’t get enough glucose to use for energy, it starts to burn fat for energy, which produces these ketones. Ketoacidosis is a very serious condition, leading to diabetic coma or even death. Vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain are just some of the major symptoms. The NoMoNausea band can help alleviate those symptoms with the help of its peppermint aromatherapy to relax the smooth muscle of the stomach and give instant relief when inhaled. The acupressure targets and opposes the nauseating signals sent from the brain.

Reason #119 Gastroenteritis

Have you ever felt so sick because you were experiencing diarrhea and vomiting? After all the stomach pain, cramping, and nausea, you probably realized that you had the "stomach bug". This "stomach bug" that you suffered from was actually, gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis is typically caused by a viral or bacterial infection which inflames and irritates your stomach and intestines. The NoMoNausea band uses peppermint aromatherapy to reduce the upset stomach and relax the smooth muscle of the gut to stop the retching before you puke. Furthermore, the acupressure knob opposes the nauseating signals sent from your brain.
