You might be shocked by my answer…

I asked this veteran if he had tried medical marijuana, if he lives in a state where it’s legal.  He responded that he had tried it to 80% reduction in pain but no longer lives in a state where it’s legal.

Medical marijuana, while based on an herb, is still a pharmaceutical and should be taken under the supervision of a qualified health care professional.  Today’s hybridized marijuana is nothing like the herb my great-grandmother occasionally collected in the mountains of Tennessee where it grew wild.  She made an herbal tea when someone had pain.Option for Natural Pain Relief natural solutions to pain A Reader's Question: Natural Solutions to Pain MedMPhoto

The other suggestion I gave him was to try California Poppy Extract.  This solution is not supposed to make you feel euphoric, or high, but it can help you to relax.  You can get it o
n the internet or from a health care professional that sells Standard Process.

In the longer term, natural solutions to pain are getting rid of toxins in your body, eliminate pain-producing foods such as sugar and grains, and heal your gut.  I talk about this extensively in my book Freedom from Fibromyalgia: 7 Steps to Complete RecoveryYou can read the introduction here. 

Until then, realize pain is a symptom your body is giving you to tell you something is terribly wrong.  It is important to listen to your body, even if it’s giving you bad news.  Where there is life, there is hope.
