Pain of any kind can destroy the quality of life. Learning the best way to stop the hurt without hurting another part of the body is where natural healing with herbs can help. All the drugs used by hospitals for pain place a heavy weight on the liver. Since it is the liver’s job to clear poisons, drugs, ect from the system it goes to reason the liver would be constantly degraded with the habitual use of pain medication.
So the question: How to deal with pain without the horrid effects of drugs. The first and most important item when dealing with any issue in life is to first understand why there is pain.
What causes pain in the body?
We have had many requests for natural pain relief methods. The subject of pain in illness is very broad as the sites of pain in the body are numerous and cannot be thoroughly dealt with in a short treatise. Our object here will be to provide the reader with a deeper insight into the causes of pain and to review some of the drugless methods of alleviating discomfort.
Viktoras Kulvinskas, in his book “Survival Into The 21st Century”, has a few concise and enlightened comments on pain: “Practically all pain, pathology and cell destruction is known to be due to high blood acidity which results from excess intake of protein, especially acid-forming animal proteins. However, even vegetable protein such as seed, when eaten to excess, can cause toxicity.”
We have always maintained that when the system is clogged with inorganic wastes, mucus and sludge, the organism can drown in its own filth. Pain is a result of congestion and degeneration of healthy cells and tissues by poor elimination of waste products.
Pain itself is an indicator of a deeper problem in the body.
Pain should not be masked so readily by inorganic “pain killers” because in this way we are ignoring the body’s signal for help. We need to determine the cause of pain.
If you are faithfully following the Creator’s program-the life building program, not the disease building dietary program-pain will usually indicate the body’s housecleaning process.
Mullein and Lobelia Salve for Pain
The salve or fomentation using 3 parts mullein and 1 part lobelia, has reduced pain and swelling in the lymph nodes of the neck, under the arms, the breasts, the groin, and in other organs such as the thyroid gland.
You can use the salve or make a strong tea of the above herbs and soak a cotton or flannel cloth in the tea. Apply this to the affected area. The mullein has a pain relieving action without being a heavy narcotic; while the lobelia acts as a thinking herb and helps the body eliminate waste accumulation either through the bowel or through the skin.
