Pain Relief

Pain robs us of life
Pain robs us of life

Pain makes life difficult. It disrupts our plans, gets in the way of connecting with others, and it... hurts! Pain often robs us of life.


As is true of all pharmaceuticals, pain relievers have potential side effects including injury of organs, dementia, digestive issues and others. Pain killers are linked to the death of thousands of Canadians every year.


Natural pain relievers, on the other hand, do not create these problems. The plant kingdom has bee successfully used for thousands of years. What are these plants? Here but a few. Turmeric (a heaping teaspoon in a small glass of water; may also be anti-cancerous) and white willow bark (available in capsules). There are a number of plant essential oils that are known to reduce pain and assist with healing that can be applied topically or consumed.  (Just make sure they are therapeutic grade, otherwise they may harm you! -ask us for the best essential oils.) Here is a partial list: clove, balsam fir, peppermint, lavender, copal, wintergreen (use cautiously), nutmeg, rosemary, marjoram, and helichrysum. These can be combined to synergistically improve the pain relief (but if you don't know which ones to combine, just ask us!).

A word of caution: some essential oils may worsen or create other conditions, especially if not pure or used in large quantities. This is true of all pharmaceutical medications. If natural products are effective they are to be preferred. Do work with a health professional to monitor your condition when using any method.


Heart-warming stories

I have watched with satisfaction the look on a woman's face after she applied some essential oils on her head. Her migraine headache shifted and then left! We did the same thing for her aching neck muscles. Then after applying some other essential oils her stomach settled down (she had the flu). She was ecstatic!


Another woman who had chronic migraines has said she enjoys almost total relief from the same combination of oils, and for less money than the potentially damaging pharmaceuticals she had been taking for years.


Another woman suffering from disabling sacroiliac joint pain, who had been unsuccessfully treated by a variety of health-care professionals, became pain free while experiencing the Raindrop Technique. After getting off the message table she had some pain return but by that evening was pain-free, and remained so for the next week. She was ecstatic! Her life was back!

Have an upset stomach? According to a 2014 Journal of Gastroenterology investigation, pure peppermint oil was found to be a first-line treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome cramps and pain. Peppermint has been used for centuries for improving digestion. Clinical studies reveal it is also helpful for memory! (Peppermint is not recommended for those who are pregnant or with high blood pressure.)

Turmeric is an powerful anti-inflammatory and has been shown to be as effective as a pain reliever as common medications, but without the stomach upset. This can be effective for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It may also reduce depression and help fight cancer! It is more powerful if taken with some black pepper (which may reduce some forms of arthritis).

Ginger has been shown to reduce migraine headaches in a majority of sufferers, but with far fewer side effects of a common medication. It is also reputed to be excellent for one's digestion and respiratory systems.

Other essential oil options are available such as the essential oil blends of Relieve It™, Panaway™, Deep Relief™, and others. Just ask.

Pain is an indication that an underlying condition needs to be addressed. For example, as we age our muscles often become tighter. It's more important to do stretching exercises, yoga, messages, etc. Some people report being able to reduce certain painful conditions by following the exercises found in this website. Be certain to see a health professional to determine the underlying cause of  your pain. Then investigate methods that may address that underlying cause.

Don't just mask pain. Get to the root of it!

Burns and Wounds

Need to heal skin that has been burnt or wounds that aren't healing properly? For burns use pure, real lavender oil with (preferably) fresh aloe vera. Asea powerfully acts to quickly reduce the pain and speed the healing of burns or wounds that aren't healing. It's remarkable! Another avenue for burnt skin is to apply minerals to the area; burnt skin is painful because certain trace minerals are depleted from the skin and surrounding tissue. Replacing these helps to reduce the pain and speed the healing.





Residue of popular herbicide likely encourages illness


A chemical and food company wants us to believe that glysophate, a widely-used herbicide, is not only safe -it might be used to treat cancer!


How profitable, as it may also increase your risk for cancer.


Glysophate is considered to be toxic to animals, including humans. A study by two independent scientists, published in Entropy April 2013, connects the increasingly widespread use of glyphosate with modern diseases because of its "inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals. CYP enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics. Thus, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins."


In other words, it slowly induces disease.


"Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease."


A copy of the whole report can be found under the link GMO's.


Conclusion: only eat organically grown food or foods known not to have been sprayed with Round-up Ready herbicide. Consider also helping your cells to repair from this damage by using Asea.






Ending the Junk Food Obsession

We all know that smoking tobacco is bad for our health. With both public pressure and far higher taxes, smoking is (thankfully) on the decline in Canada.


Now we are facing the crushing health effects of junk food and beverages. These are filled with bad fats, sugar, and salt -plus colorants in soft drinks. The results are alarming: rapidly rising rates of obsity, diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, and far more. Our health care system can't keep up. It turns out that a tobacco company is the largest junk food company! Even the most ardent libertarian (who dislikes government intervention in our lives) may have to concede that doing nothing about this epidemic is harming all of us.


Thus we may have to do the same thing with junk food and drinks as we did with tobacco: apply social pressure as well as add taxes. We know that banning didn't work with alcohol (and isn't working with street drugs). At least taxing these ills will raise money needed to pay for the freedom to eat and drink ourselves into oblivion. For more information read this Globe & Mail article.
