A panorama of pain
Medically, pain is almost invariably treated by pharmacological ways and means, most of which are not free of side effects. There are other methods of dealing with pain, and a few of these are associated with foods and dietary supplements and free of damaging side effects. This is particularly true of the most frequent and persistent source of pain in our society, the various forms of arthritis. Today over 40 million Americans suffer from arthritis. Relatively few are aware of the extent nutrition can help reduce pain.
The dietary connection
Because coffee has certain vasodilating (vein-enlarging) properties, it helps the circulation of the blood and in some cases it helps reduce pain. But coffee also blocks the endorphin receptors in the brain. Endorphins reduce substance P across the synapses of nerves, thus making the body less receptive to pain. By blocking endorphin receptors, coffee increases pain in some other cases. Knowing how to reduce pain through nutrition is feasible, but it is not simple.
At the same time, the production of Series 3 prostanglandins can reduce arachidonic acid activity and limit the formation of inflammation mediators. Thus eicosapentanoic acid, usually known as EPA, which is the precursor of Series 3 prostaglandins, can further reduce the magnitude of pain. These simple examples are to show that there are indeed other methods of dealing with pain, than the customary chemical painkillers.
Traditionally too, a large variety of herbs has been successfully used for the treatment of pain. The difference with the painkillers of commerce is that these are free of side effects. For example, painkillers often reduce the level of prostaglandins that protect the stomach lining and can result in ulcers. No such problems are encountered with nutrition and nutritional supplements.
