Accupressure and Masssage. Temperature and pressure are very, very similar in pain control. They reduce inflammation and pain by stopping the pain signal. It's called the 'gate theory of neurons.' Temperature neurons and pressure neurons seem to be longer and more insulated than pain neurons. The more insulated the neuron is, the faster the message is going to travel. Apply cold water, moist heat, or pressure -- and it closes the gate to the next signal, which is the pain signal. So, regular accupressure treatments, or deep massages are a great way to keep the pain away!

Ok whether you want to hear this or not.. Marijuana. 1) It's not addictive 2) It's healthier than OXYCOTIN 3) It's NATURAL I know a lot of you perceive it as a terrible drug or whatever you want to say, but look at the 13 states that have Medical Marijuana available to people just like you with chronic pain.. It's effective and it works. Try it out.. Hope I was some sort of help!

"Many of the autoimmune disorders are rare, but as a whole, afflict millions of Americans. The brunt of the autoimmune diseases strike women more often than men. In particular, they affect women of working age and during their childbearing years. This seems to clearly point to the possibility that hormonal triggers are involved. Lupus is far more common among African-American and Hispanic women than Caucasians of European descent. People that are blood type B are especially susceptible to these kinds of autoimmune disorders." If you are a non-secretor (usually people with Lewis A antigens), then you are much more likely to suffer from autoimmune diseases. If a person is a non-secretor it means that they only have blood type antigens in their blood stream and not in other bodily fluids like tears, mucus, and saliva. "Non-secretors also have genetically induced difficulty removing immune complexes from their tissues, which increases their risk of attacking tissue that contains them." Wheat is the food that is most likely to cause this sort of reaction, what happens is you eat a wheat product and it isn't digested as well by people that are blood types O and B so it may stick to the sides of the intestines. Then your immune system detects the foreign substance on the intestinal wall and it sends out an oxidizing free radical attack (this is a non-specific immune response used against things that your body doesn't recognize) to destroy it. An oxidizing free radical attack is like a mini nuclear warhead, it destroys the substance but it also damages the body in the process. In the long run this can cause damage to the intestinal walls so substances can seep through into the bloodstream and cause mental and physical problems for the individual. There are 4 supplements which will strengthen your immune system, these are: magnesium, licorice root extract (also works great for chronic fatigue syndrome), lecithin, and larch arabinogalactin (immune modulator derived from a tree). Most of the information here is from the blood type diet, following the blood type diet has been shown to greatly reduce if not entirely prevent bodily damage from various autoimmune disorders. Autoimmune disorders means your immune system is attacking your body, the main cause of this is eating foods which aren't digested well and then they get stuck in your digestive tissue and your immune system has to attack the digestive tissue and the offending substance in order to get rid of it. The best thing about the blood type diet is that it doesn't cost anything to take full advantage of it, check out my source links and shoot me an email if you have any questions. Many people, even Drs, aren't familiar with how blood type antigens can influence the immune system and subsequently the digestive system, over 70% of many mammals immune systems are in their digestive tracts. As I said, wheat appears to be the number one food that causes autoimmune conditions, so if you don't want to try the blood type diet please go without eating wheat for a few weeks and see if you feel better. My friend told me about this in 2005, I think it was, and I thought that a "blood type diet" was a fad to sell books but after I attended several biology courses and finished my Bachelor's Degree I heard about the diet again. I looked at the research behind it and it was legitimate, so I stopped eating wheat and within 2-3 weeks I felt better than ever. Matt

I will often refer patients looking for alternatives, who do not benefit from Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, to a Naturopath.

Try shark cartilage as it rebuilds soft tissues in the spine. Marijuana is not a pain killer; it's an hallucinogenic and it is not medicine.
