Why Drugs Are Not Always the Solution to Your Fibromyalgia

July 05, 2016 in Fibromyalgia

IT’S A PAIN TO BE IN PAIN

Pain. It makes us tired, it makes us unhappy, and it makes us want to turn it off as soon as we can. Grabbing a prescription can feel like the quick and easy solution but it can sometimes lead to difficult and long-term consequences. When taking medication that alters the chemical makeup of your body, there are always potential risks to your health. The use of prescription pain medication, which can be helpful, can also result in addiction or dependency, an impaired mental state, mood changes, or unexpected physical reactions. Fortunately, there are natural alternatives to ease cases of both chronic pain and fibromyalgia and get you back to living pain free.

WHY DRUGS MAY NOT ALWAYS BE THE BEST SOLUTION

1.  FIBROMYALGIA IS CHRONIC

A chronic condition has persistent and long-lasting effects which means it needs persistent and long-lasting attention. When an individual suffering from a chronic condition has the option to pursue effective holistic alternatives, they allow themselves the opportunity to use at-home treatments that are cost-effective, safe, and drug-free.

2.  FIBROMYALGIA IS NEUROLOGICAL 

Research indicates that the pain caused by fibromyalgia is due to: abnormal sensory processing in the central nervous system, hormonal imbalances, and decreased blood flow to the thalamus region of the brain. These neurological differences promote the amplification of pain signals to the nerves. The FDA has only approved three drugs to help treat fibromyalgia and over-the-counter medications remain generally ineffective.

3.  FIBROMYALGIA IS NOT AN INFLAMMATORY CONDITION

Many individuals suffering from fibromyalgia instinctively reach for an anti-inflammatory tablet such as Aleve, Motrin, or Advil. However, fibromyalgia is proven to be a non-inflammatory condition. These drugs are often ineffective against fibromyalgia pain because they do not target the deeper neurological root of the chronic pain.

4.  NARCOTIC SOLUTIONS ARE EXPENSIVE

Not only does fibromyalgia have a large emotional impact on an individual’s life, it can also have a large financial impact. The cost of specific treatment can total between $3,400 and $3,600 every year with surrounding expenses and loss of revenue bringing the total up to $5,945 annually. Choosing to use narcotics as a solution to fibromyalgia pain quickly inflates expenses annually.

5. HOLISTIC SOLUTIONS PRODUCE NATURAL PAINKILLERS

Treatments such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy send low-voltage electrical currents to stimulate nerves and send signals to the brain that block normal pain signals. The electrical stimulation helps the body produce natural painkillers called endorphins, which block the perception of pain.

6.  HOLISTIC SOLUTIONS CAN BE PERFORMED AT HOME

Massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists and naturopaths may provide helpful guidance and natural solutions to pain management, however visiting a specialist frequently can become expensive and tiring. Dr. Michael Ho is an Acupuncturist and a Doctor of Chiropractic who developed DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System for clinical use only. After the recurring request of his many patients, Dr. Michael Ho released the TENS therapy treatment for use outside of the clinic.

7.  HOLISTIC SOLUTIONS WORK

DR-HO’S ® Pain Therapy System relieves muscle tension and pain in as little as 20 minutes. The device was designed and tested professionally, used by Chiropractors and Physiotherapists, and then released for the public to use at home. The ability to significantly relieve pain, reduce tension, increase oxygenation, and increase circulation without the risk of harsh and expensive drugs has transformed the way pain is managed.

      Hi Joe,

      I'm so glad to hear that you've been using our system with great results! This is a great question and I'm sure it's one that many people have. When you have Fibromylagia the pain can literally be anywhere in your body for some people it may consistently be in one location but for others the pain travels throughout their body and may different from day to day. The best way to treat Fibromylagia by using the Pain Therapy System is by simply placing the pads wherever you feel the pain. By treating the nerves in the area of pain you can help to increase circulation and reduce irritation of the affected nerves which in turn will help to reduce the pain that you are suffering from.

      I hope this helps you Joe. If you have any other questions please comment here or feel free to call our customer care center at any time.

      Best of health and happiness!
