Many of us suffer with pain from time to time and some chronic pain. Day in and day out an ongoing pain with very little relief. It maybe necessary to take over-the-counter or even prescription pain relievers. But what if you don”t have to…?

You could be creating new health problems while attempting to get relief from the one you already have.
When we take pain medication for long periods of time our bodies adapt to them. We have to go through a detox period if we are wanting to stay off of the medication, this is a form of addiction. When our bodies are used to having a certain chemical or even natural substance and we immediately stop the consumption our body may go into a bit of shock. This can cause other health issues to arise and also cause extreme irritability.
