Get Off Those Narcotic Pain Pills!
Chronic pain affects at least 100 million Americans. Though many treatments are available for pain, the number of prescriptions for opioid pain relievers has increased dramatically in the past 10 years. As a result, many people who use prescription opioids to treat their chronic pain have become addicted to them. Besides damaging their own lives, addiction also has negative impacts on users' family and friends. But know that narcotic pain meds needn't be the answer to your chronic pain, wherever it lies in your body. The experts at Kairos Chronic Pain Coaching are masters in relieving pain without drugs. They instead use a number of highly effective holistic/integrative methods that are effective and safe. There are countless disadvantages to using opioid pain relievers. The wide range of short- and long-term, direct and indirect effects include:
the risk of addiction
negative changes in appetite, heart rate and blood pressure
altering areas of the brain that are necessary for life-sustaining functions, as well parts that let people experience normal pleasures in life such as food and sex, their ability to control their stress level, their decision-making, and their ability to learn and remember.
Broader negative outcomes can be seen in education level, employment, housing situations, relationships and involvement in crimes. Western medical views have largely been shaped by the system of thought that the mind and body were separate from each other. Meanwhile, mind-body medicine uses the power of thoughts and emotions to influence physical health. At Kairos Chronic Pain Coaching, our holistic/integrative methods eleminate the above risks listed above and let you get on with the business of living your best life. Our skilled and compassionate team offer a variety of effective techniques to treat a wide range of chronic pain conditions. These treatments are generally less invasive, result in fewer side effects, and generate remarkable results when administered correctly.
