5 Simple Steps to Calm Your Pain
Over the years Dr. Higgins has had many patients ask for more natural ways to calm their pain. He developed Calm My Pain as a way to educate patients on ways to naturally calm their pain. He has seen the devastating effects of using narcotics to control pain or benzodiazepines (ex: Xanax or Valium) for anxiety or insomnia.
www.calmmypain.com offers high quality supplements created or hand picked by Dr. Higgins.
Rest your Mind, Rest your Muscles
Take magnesium and melatonin on those nights when you can’t fall asleep. Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer. It also calms anxiety and improves gut function. Melatonin will help you fall asleep naturally. See calmmypain.com for more details.
*Take 1-2 capsules of Magnesium+ each night. May make you drowsy.
Calm Your Inflammation
Calm your inflammation before it causes damage by using highly absorbable Turmeric and Vitamin D. Inflammation can cause damage to cells if unchecked. The Curcumin in Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory. Vitamin D also decreases inflammation and reduces overall pain levels.
*Take one capsule of Vitamin D (5000iu) daily and 1-2 capsules of Tumeric daily.
Calm Your Pain Receptors
The CBD (Cannabidiol) in Hemp Oil binds to pain receptors and acts as a natural pain killer. Use a high-quality, medical grade product. Make sure that the Hemp Oil has CBD with no THC and is broad spectrum for the most effect.
*Use up to 2 dropperfuls (2ml) of CBD per day divided into 2-4 doses. Start with 1 dropperful at night, then add throughout the day if needed.
Stretch and Strengthen Your Muscles
Specific stretches are key to reducing pain. Aerobic exercise daily will oxygenate your muscles, decreasing your aches and pains. Stretching every day will make a big difference in your pain levels. A lacrosse ball is included in the Pain Pak to help you target specific areas of pain.
*Stretch and exercise every day.
Research has shown that daily gratitudes decrease pain levels and increase overall happiness. As you see the good around you, the serotonin in your brain increases. This increases your happiness. Record something good that happened to you daily in a journal or on social media today.
*Think of at least 3 things you are grateful for each day and record it in a book or on social media. Share your thoughts with your friends and loved ones.
