The Cause of Pain

pain-fi200x300Pain doesn’t just happen. And most musculoskeletal pain is not cause by bones pushing on nerves, as conventional doctors tell you. This is misinformation passed on for years without any empiric basis. Half of what they teach in medical school is wrong, and we don’t know which half.

You set yourself up for pain. The injury that you blame for the pain is just the last straw to make your body complain.

Pain is set up in the body by:

  • Acidification of the body.
  • Demineralization of the body.
  • Toxification of the body.

The manner in which pain is set up is:

  1. Eating an acidic diet (typical American diet) causes the body to lose its calcium from the bones and magnesium from the muscles.
  2. Soft bones and spasming muscles cause joint laxity.x-ray neck-fi226-161
  3. Lax joints leads to joint strain.
  4. Joint strain causes injury to ligaments.
  5. Ligaments inform you of damage through pain.
  6. Conventional medicine ignores ligaments, uses anti-inflammatories which stops healing, and the pain becomes chronic.
  7. Unhealed joints leads to arthritis, disc herniation.

The cause of the pain can be fixed by reversing these processes and pain can be avoided.

Definitions of Pain:

“An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience arising from actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. The International Association for the Study of Pain.

“An unpleasant sensation and emotional response to that sensation”. American Academy of Pain Medicine

“Whatever the experiencing person says it is, existing whenever he says it does.” Margo McCaffrey in 1968

“Your body telling you something is wrong.” Linda Cheek, MD. Solution: fix it. If you don’t fix it, the message (pain) gets louder. If you just cover it up, the message gets louder.

Acute pain: the body’s response to injury.

Chronic pain: the continuation of pain after the initial injury should have had time to be resolved. Due to the use of anti-inflammatories, the injury and cause of acute pain is often not healed, and chronic pain results.

Narcotic: Narcotic is a legal term used by law enforcement. Usually they lump all scheduled drugs into this broad category. The term has a lot of negative stigmas. Try to avoid using the term “narcotic” when referring to pain medications.
