9- Herbalism- With the help of an educated natural health practitioner, you may can find a natural remedy to treat a health issue or condition you are battling. There are thousands of herbal remedies to treat just about every ailment. Do not just “google” herbal remedies and start taking them however, many have interactions with medications. Just because it is natural does not mean it will not cause side effects or have adverse effects. Consult a licensed healthcare practitioner or naturopath before starting any herbal medicine.
10- Meditation- When you are in chronic pain, it is easy to get overwhelmed. It is scientifically proven that sleeplessness and anxiety can increase pain. Meditation may not cure your pain, but it may help you cope with it. Being mindful about negative thoughts, anxiety and staying away from negative sources can help you stay mentally above the pain you are struggling with.
When you are battling pain, be sure you are hydrating, eating well, resting and staying around positive influences. This is your life! You may not be in control of everything but you are in control of your choices, attitude and actions.
