Ask Deepak - How To Decrease Physical Pain

Category:  Spiritual Solutions , Ask Deepak Videos

Are there non-prescriptions ways of decreasing pain?

Any form of physical exercise will reduce pain in almost every chronic illness. The reason is that exercisegives you an endorphin boost. Your brain secretes this hormonethat has pain reliving properties.
Are there non-prescriptions ways of decreasing pain?

Any form of physical exercise will reduce pain in almost every chronic illness. The reason is that exercise gives you an endorphin boost. Your brain secretes this hormone that has pain reliving properties.

Other good ways to reduce physical pain is doing yoga and meditation. Good breathing techniques are very important and they are all extremely useful when tackling pain. Laughter, music, positive social interactions and gentle massage are also good ways to deal with pain.

Common misconception is drinking alcohol, or smoking, which are not reducing pain, but rather make it works.

  • The endorphine boost, so true. At older age one can experience this by simply walking in nature and listen to the birds tweeting instead of twittering lol :)

  • Well, from my experience Yoga really cures the body because it teaches you to become aware of it in the first place. Am still grateful to have discovered this at a crucial age in my life. But now at older age I like to drink a few glasses of wine daily and am not going to let others tell me that it is not good. I have always listened to my body and the older I get the more I listen to myself and not to any doctor whatever his advice is. Perhaps not prudent but who cares if something inside of you tells you that it cannot hurt.......?

  • Thank you ! My 2 cent>>> I was in the awareness of intolerable genuine suffering from the concept called chronic pain, bed ridden and screaming in agony was all I knew for years... that had Me only thinking about dying and getting Oxies up My nose and in My system. I no longer suffer! The assembly point of awareness in My luminous shell shifted to "paying attention on purpose, in the present moment" WHERE "the unfolding of experiences " do not become My history. I no longer cling too, so I have nothing to defend ! I am the creator of My suffering and when the FEAR response knows that the "concept called pain" is not from a foreign or outside source. then {does it hurt or does it tickle} My physical holographic duality state May be trapped By those laws but In My mind...I AM FREE !

  • Hi Interesting article, I find I am increasingly in pain, which often limits my mobility as my feet are badly affected. I also suffer many neurological symptoms, including visual disturbances, altered sensations, reduced bladder sensation/control, limited sensation in a sexual sense, balance and spacial orientation disturbances alongside mood disturbances. Thankfully, my cognitive skills are seemingly ok. I have been visiting the GP since December, but all blood tests etc, including diabetes levels, show no obvious cause. I have lost 4 stone since December. I get sudden onset fatigue to the point of exhaustion, literally going from wide awake to barely conscious. I am unable to take conventional medications as they seem to cause more side effects than I am happy to live with. I have sole responsibility for a 4 year old child, and the symptoms are intermittant, recurring with decreasing relapses. The pain hurts, but I accept it and try to focus my attention elsewhere. I have previously had spiritual healing, and as I am very keen on energy in all its forms, enjoy feeling the energy flowing. I do listen to music, positive music, when I am in pain or just unable to function physically (tonight I was fully aware, mentally, but for some reason was unable to move my arms and legs, as though I had lost the ability, the will, to animate my body, trapped in my consciousness and disconnected from my physical self.) I don`t care about the pain, I accept whatever is happening as part of my soul`s growth, I am more concerned about the impact it is having on my young son and my ability to care for him. I have accepted that something is happening, of what I am not fully aware, nor of its implications not just for myself but for others. As unpleasant as it may seem, sometimes the biggest lessons we learn are the most painful. But pain doesn`t have to be a struggle, fear of pain is the battle, being fear-free doesn`t grant painlessness, but it eases the journey. I think that`s where love and faith come in, too. Just my perspective.

  • Agree`d. Yet, pain in the body is a message from the soul. If the soul has been fractured as a child. then one must get out of the head and use the body to communicate with. To find out the source of the pain and then to aid in the returning of soul fractures. All is illusion remember!? To ignore pain, through exercise and mediation, does not solve the reason the body is doing its best to communicate with you in the first place. The body & soul will keep trying to reach u no matter how u ignore

  • All tried and true advice from Dr. Chopra. I would add that Hypnotherapy can also be an effective way to manage and reduce pain without drugs. Hypnosis was approved for pain management and insomnia, by NIH CAMS in the 90`s and more people are using it now even to replace chemical anesthesia during surgical procedures and in childbirth.

  • I have Lupus with chronic joint & musculoskeletal pain. I tried Curves to lose wt as it was low impact. I ended up tearing my meniscus. I`ve tried pool exercises in a heated pool that seems to work better. I also walk. It`s really hard to exercise with chronic pain but i do try to do some form of exercise daily & it seems to help. I hate swallowing pills & try to avoid as much medicine as possible.

  • I live with chronic pain due to disk damage from a car crash in which my vehicle was hit by a light runner going 50 mph. I am on medication for it and have learned to exercise in a pool, gently and have felt the pain lessen. I am excited to learn more and have ordered a number of Dr. Chopra`s books. I know there is more to life than this vessel of flesh.
