Joint pain, arthritic pain, tendon pain, knee pain, ankle pain, back pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wristpain, foot pain, any chronic physical pain, or acute pain are symptoms that your body is in distress.
Your body and your mind always reflect what is happening in your life, both internally and externally.
When pain is experienced, it is your body giving you a RED flag that something is not right, and should not be ignored. Your body constantly tries to make you consciously aware of what is happening with toxicity levels it is experiencing, especially when the levels are now exceeding its ability to eliminate. Your body will let you know,and often it is in the nerves that show its pain, with their sharp stabbing or pins and needles sensations, or sometimes it is a burning sensation. You may have been living in high levels of pain for a long time and not been consciously aware of it, until it comes into a particular area, or the symptoms of an illness and can now be recognized.
Taking pain relief helps the mind; it inhibits your awareness of pain temporarily, but has no effect on reducing the toxicity levels within the body, the pain continues, as does the degeneration of body`s systems and their functions.
The continual use of pain relief medications, masks the degenerative actions taking place, meanwhile the joints, fat tissue and lymphatic system become the storage reservoirs of the pain. It is your own body`s wisdom that tries to keep the toxic chemicals away from your vital systems and organs, so implements an action of storage in the further most areas of the body, ie joints, limbs, and if the urinary system or bowel is not able to eliminate properly, the body will in time send it out through the skin. This elimination of toxins becomes the pimples, rashes and lumps that appear on and in your skin.
There are many things that contribute to the experience of pain, and can come from of the practices in sports and fitness endeavours, in any obsessive actions, compulsive or imbalanced work/ life approaches, and living the popular myth of ‘no pain no gain’ and “the need to push through, going beyond what the natural moderate balance represents” pushing past what is the actual healthy level of action. All these endeavours are driven by the belief in the mental willpower versus your own body’s great wisdom. The old mind over matter, meaning the mind is superior to the body.
The mind tries to influence what it perceives as success. This is a learned response of pain equates to `Success`. This kind of mental approach can never bring the body back into proper function.
A balanced mind reflects a balanced body, a balanced mind reflects a clear ability to discern true health actions needed in any given moment, then the body can experience balanced energy, vitality and strength
For the mind to reflect calmness, balance and successful integration of knowledge, there must be a balanced hormonal function supporting good digestion, assimilation of what will truly nourish, actions supporting vital assimilation of nutrients, growth and complete elimination of toxic influences.
Here is a little analogy of how this may appear; Just as in an elite sportsperson, over time, and with the continual pushing of the body to attain and maintain a peak level of performance for longer and longer periods, eventually results in the overproduction of lactic acid and the storage of the undigested supplements not being eliminated. This toxicity in turn eventually crystallizes in the joints, and degeneration of soft tissue strength, creating pain, stiffness and eventually immobility.
The toxicity affects and distresses the nervous system, the neural pathways, it influences the functions of liver, kidneys and condition of the blood. The compromising of blood quality then affect all cellular functions, eventually compromising the body`s general normal functions. All this action is beyond the mind, it cannot control the pain. The mind losses the capability to recognise what is of benefit, the real nourishment of the body and its self. The depression of system functions ensues, then reflected in a depressed mental state.
The mind may appear to have the upper hand temporarily at times, but if there is any conflicting chemical signals within, this dysfunction show up eventually as a depression of function, of organs and systems and the mind eventually reflects the distressed state appearing within the body.
Your body is a wondrously complex system of chemical actions, fluids (blood, lymph etc), electrical impulses (nervous systems, brain neurons etc), chemical energy transfers (motion, action, elimination, speech etc), skeletal and muscular functions. Amongst these chemical actions in all cellular levels, the energy transfers within the pathways from the limbic system, are coordinated through many glands including the Hypothalamus within the endocrine system. The endocrine glands communicate continually to the organs, and body tissues within the many systems, such as digestive, respiratory, reproductive, circulatory, eliminatory, and immune system functions, enabling the body to eliminate or store the toxicity present within the body, dependant on what it has learned.
How your system functions, will depend on external and internal influences, ie stored past learned responses and the ability to take in a new experience, a new response. When the pathways in the body are in distress, this creates a high level of chemical toxicity; either an oversupply or under-supply of chemistry. In a balanced body the hormones to counter any distress or an overload of chemical toxicity, is taken care of by the endocrine glands and limbic system pathways communicating your digestive ability to take in and assumulate a new level of chemistry free of the pain response.
Why do I experience pain or fear, agitation and anxiousness of a response from the internal actions of the digestive system? What am I feeding my self?
It is your endocrine and Limbic systems job to operate keeping and maintaining what is its familiar homeostasis. This is set up from the earliest time in life and comes from past store impressions, memories, learned attitudes or perceptions, (epigenetics). These brain systems can maintain a pain or fear response and affect the internal working relationships between the brain, glands, all internal systems and what they communicate to organs, maintaining a pain filled homeostasis as the familiar experience.
It is through expression from the limbic system, that the emotive response, generated from past stored memories, is used to coordinate gland responses, through a series of communication hormones (chemical initiators) that affects all internal communications. These responses initiate other hormones to produce or reduce chemical actions to maintain the pain being fed through digestive functions, and stopped, through excretory, circulatory, lymphatic systems and their related organs. It is these actions of keeping the pain that begins the degeneration process, instead of actions to maintain proper function.
The experience of pain is an inability within the body to eliminate its high level of chemical toxicity. This inability, the malfunctioning communication and resulting toxicity, begins to cause degeneration and damage to organs, and varying systems affecting the body function. The cellular digestive function eventually becomes the experience of acute and or chronic pain and illness. The source of a malfunction can be defined through kinesiology. This experience can be changed. Through the minds gaining new awarenesses and with mental refocusing and by giving the body the tools for change in new chemistry, new pathways are created and new levels of clarity in the body fluids is experienced. This creates a change from the experience of pain to the experience of your true nature coming through. The experience of calmness, the mind respecting the true needs of the body, supporting integrity in all actions and an acceptance of experiencing Joy, true self worth, and respectfulness of the body arise naturally and become your new way of living, free from the old experience of pain.
How to change the actions causing pain;
There are many allopathic medicinal strategies used to manage pain that do give temporary relief, and beneficial as a temporary option.
However, there are Complementary Natural Health Therapies that can uncover and support change of the original source causing any loss of integrity and imbalancing of your communication pathways. These therapies support the clearing of what is stored that is creating distress. Your experience can be changed by giving the body and the mind the tools to change. You are empowered to change at the pace and rate you are able to cope with and function in your new way of being in your daily life.
