If you are one of the estimated 50 million Americans who suffer with Chronic Pain, you are aware of just how miserable and life-altering it can be. There is not a single area of you life that remains unaffected. You no longer sleep well. Your sex life is suffering. Everyday activities have become your daily “Mount Everest”. You cannot concentrate because the pain is always on your mind. It is wearing you out, both physically and emotionally.
People can see the pain on your face and in your eyes. Chronic Pain and the inability to do the things you love, is making you feel depressed (not the other way around like your doctor may have suggested). Recent studies have even shown that brains of people suffering with Chronic Pain, show patterns of atrophy that are virtually indistinguishable from what is seen in patients with dementia or Alzheimer’s. In fact, a recent study from a prominent Canadian university showed that chronic pain causes the brain to degenerate at almost 10 times the rate of someone without pain!
Although your Chronic Pain may seem hopeless, there are some things that you can do to help yourself — even though your doctor undoubtedly failed to educate you in this regard. Some of the most basic of these include eating only healthy foods and taking only whole-food supplements, drinking more water, giving up the cigarettes, and exercising to the degree that you can (difficult when suffering with Chronic Pain). For more information, check out some of the links in our “Blogroll” on the right side of the page.
Although doing these simple things will certainly help a large percentage of you who suffer with Chronic Pain; there is a significant percentage of you whose pain is not greatly diminished by these measures. It is for you that I created Destroy Chronic Pain dot com.
