Ayurvedic Treatment for Pain and Ache

chronic pain

Chronic pain and aches can be caused by a variety of factors, including impurities that have become deeply embedded in the physiology over years. Here I am going to give some idea about ayurvedic treatment for pain. Firstly your poor diet and digestion lead to a buildup of toxins in tissues of your body that can activate the pain response. Certain foods can sensitize nerves to increased pain response. Likewise the second thing is hoard of stress and the disruption of bodily rhythms through an erratic or hectic lifestyle can be the reason of imbalance of nervous system and predispose an individual to increased pain. Lastly, any factor that depresses the body’s natural healing ability will slow the recovery from the experience of chronic pain. Some of the reasons for your pain can be your week body.

Get a fit and healthy body

As pain cannot be completely reined by allopathic treatment and excess use of customary medicines can be the reason of several side effects. Ayurvedic treatment for pain and its remedies consider to be gentle and cause fewer side effects than those customary medicines. To deal with chronic pain effectively, all of the causative factors must be addressed.

Some tips for Ayurvedic treatment for pain and aches:

1. Systematic relaxation

The next time you incline to pop a pill for your symptoms, spend 10 minutes doing a systematic relaxation in shavasana (corpse pose) instead. This practice can reduce muscle spasms, relieve tension, and calm the mind naturally.

2. Massage

In the ayurvedic tradition, regular oil massage, or snehana, is revered as a highly effective form of therapy for all sorts of ailments. Massage helps reduce pain because it tames Vata, allays joint and muscle stiffness, increases circulation, mobilizes toxins, and relaxes the body. Find a qualified therapist to work with once a month. (Once a week would be even better). If money is tight, simply give yourself an oil massage on your pain and aches stead daily.

3. Diet

Food is a powerful healer, too. So firstly follow a Vata-pacifying diet of warm, moist, mildly spiced, nourishing foods for a month and see if it makes a difference. The sweet, salty, and sour tastes are all Vata pacifying—so secondly just make sure you find natural, healthy sources of sweets (like ripe plums, pears, or dates) and don’t overdo. Overeating aggravates Vata.

4. Gentle asana 

Pain can discourage us from stretching and moving the way we normally do. But restricting your movement will only compound the problem. Toxins accumulate where there is stagnation and congestion in the body, and this causes pain. Besides this contracting and relaxing our muscles with gentle asanas relieves the stagnation by mobilizing blood, lymph, and synovial fluid. Even 15 minutes of stretching every morning or evening will make a world of difference.

5. Aromatherapy

Studies show that the essential oils of rosemary and thyme increase blood flow to muscles and create warmth, while peppermint and myrtle have temporary painkilling effects. Sprinkle a few drops into an aromatherapy diffuser, a hot bath, or your massage oil—and enjoy. (If you’re using essential oils on your skin, test first before applying broadly.)

6.  Herbs

Turmeric and ginger help reduce inflammatory pain, while valerian, kava kava, chamomile, skullcap, passionflower, hops, and jatamansi (the “Indian valerian”) help combat tension-related pain. And since chronic pain is often a combination of inflammation and tension, these herbs are often sold in combination formulas. They’re available online and at many health-food stores surely.
