Chronic Pain

Understand…

…your pain.

Is it dull?

Sharp?

Shooting?

Erratic?

Localized?

Spread-out?

Deep?

On surface?

Triggered?

By what?

Where, when and how are you comfortable?

How can comfort be enhanced?

Is comfort going to be temporary, or perhaps permanent?

Chronic pain is a tough cookie. 

Happens to most, sometime or the other in life. 

Understanding the underlying Dosha or Doshas is vital. 

Kapha is dull and encompassing. 

Pitta is sharp and shooting. It can also burn. 

Vata is erratic. It carries Pitta to shoot. Location keeps changing. 

Identify the Doshas at play. 

Then act with remedy. Pacify that which is out of control. Bring it back in control. 

When pain becomes chronic, and after biochemistry of the area has changed, it it well possible that three Doshas are involved. 

What does one do here?

Dr. Lad taught us that three Doshas going out of whack is a combination for disaster. Here, a complete detox will be required. 

In today’s day and age, detox starts with food. 

Eat and drink the right stuff. 

Stay alkaline. Avoid acidic or acitity causing substances. 

Exercise.

Get rid of waste smoothly.

Sleep sufficiently. 

Persistence with this food-exercise-waste-sleep regimen alone will take care of most of your detox, and could well bring your pain under control already. 

Go for this basic stuff…

…by yourself. 

Beyond that, sure, see a doctor.
