4 Life-Changing Tips for Taking Care of Aches and Pains at Home
We all have them, and attempt to manage them through various medications, trips to physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and acupuncturists.
The common denominator here is pain. Particularly, aches and pains in general are trickier to manage, and treat effectively. Many people are dealing on a regular basis with pain treatment and medication.
Usually, these aches and pains can be relieved with over-the counter medications when not in a health professional’s office, but did you know that you can actually treat aches and pains at home?
Here are the 4 life-changing tips for taking care of aches and pains at home:
Epsom Salt Baths
Sure, you’ve heard of using Epsom salt before. But have you heard that it actually helps to change the input from the body to the brain as what is being recognized as pain? Along with its relaxing remedies, hot Epsom salt baths are soothing and pain-relieving. The key is to make the bath hot, with the Epsom salts, rather than lukewarm or cold.
Tumeric and Fish Oil
These two, used separately, both have properties that aid in the assistance of causing pain relief. Tumeric has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used in cooking various foods, while fish oil is also anti-inflammatory and can come in easy-to-swallow capsules.
Yes, exercise! While this might be the last idea for pain relief, exercise not only releases endorphins in your body to make you feel happier, but those hormones actually increase your pain threshold – allowing you to endure higher amounts while feeling less. Try it!
Have you ever seen someone with few amounts of warm clothing on completely submerged into a tank of below-freezing water or ice? If you wonder how someone is able to handle that, you can probably believe that meditation plays a big role. Meditation allows you to mentally block out pain, and focus on your body in new ways. One way to word this is by calling it Mindful Meditation – and anyone can do it!
If you are having aches and pains that you just can’t ease without medications and trips to the doctor’s office, try some of these life-changing tips. They really are life-changing!
