The case for alternative approaches in fighting the opioid epidemic

10876661 - pharmacy vial and cap with pharmacy backgroundHave you heard? Due to soaring opioid overdose deaths (deaths in the U.S. from opioid-related overdoses jumped another 21% last year), American life expectancy dropped for the second year in a row in 2017.

It’s no great secret that powerful pain killers have become a major problem, both in dense urban areas and in rural cities and towns. From the deep south to the Pacific Northwest, this is an epidemic that touches every corner of the country.

As a result, there has been a big spike in interest surrounding alternative pain treatments and medicines. Whether it be yoga, massage, or better nutrition, people from coast-to-coast are ditching pills in favor of a natural pain-free life.

Even more, researchers at Harvard Medical School discovered that something as simple as regular yoga can go a long way in relieving the symptoms of chronic pain. They also studied acupuncture, relaxation techniques, massage therapy, and nutritional supplements.

While many of the studies in question did not specifically comment on the effects of alternative treatments in reference to opioid use, it does suggest that people could greatly benefit from alternative treatments where treating chronic pain is concerned.

Further studies are ongoing, but the initial findings are promising. In the search for safer options than the powerful pain killers we’ve become accustomed to, alternative medicine is a welcome sight.

This spice can add flavor and health benefits to your dish

Fresh and ground ginger root spice on wooden tableHave you ever reached for a ginger ale when your stomach felt sick? If so, it may be no surprise to you that ginger can have some satisfying health benefits. The root of the plant is actually what you ingest. It’s used to not only flavor beverages like ginger ale, but also to spice up dishes, and even to clean your palette after eating sushi. But ginger is so much more than this! It has some awesome properties that make it a great addition to your “first aid kit.”

Ginger can help relieve various types of pains. It’s been shown not only to help stomachaches and motion sickness, but also to ail other issues. You may find it helps with diarrhea, gas, and menstrual cramps. Ginger has some amazing anti-inflammatory properties, making it helpful for pain from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It eases general joint and muscle pain. It may even help with a migraine or headache.

Ginger is such a big deal that it’s been said to possibly “improve brain function and protect against Alzheimer’s Disease.” There’s a substance in fresh ginger, called Gingerole, that may even help reduce your chance of infections. Raw ginger has even been shown to have possible anti-cancer properties.

Ginger is easy to add into to a diet plan. It can be found in various forms, including pickled, powder, supplements, and hot teas. Grated ginger can also be added to soups and stir fries.

But, as with anything, you want to be careful. It’s always a good idea to talk about supplements with your doctor. Ginger can interfere with some medication, can raise insulin, and can act as a blood thinner. Check with your doctor regarding the safety of using it during pregnancy and if you have certain health issues. Keep in mind, a lower dose is usually recommended. In a day, the typical amount is 4 grams or less.

Once you’re approved to add this supplement to your diet, consider giving it a try. Add flavor and health benefits to your palette.

Functional medicine is a complement rather than a replacement

83184611_MWhile functional medicine has been slowly becoming part of the mainstream medical scene, many people are still quite unaware of what it actually is. Unfortunately, many people still consider functional medicine to be a “new age” or “hippie-style” method that flies in the face of modern medical science.

Yet, this view couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are still a lot of misconceptions surrounding what functional medicine does and stands for, which is why we wanted to take a moment to address them.

Functional Medicine Is Only An Alternative

The term “alternative medicine” is generally burdened by ingrained preconceived notions of yogi poses and strange herbal concoctions, which, while they may fall under the genre of alternative medicine, do not comprise alternative medicine.

In fact, these days, many functional medicine providers are also credentialed, trained, and experienced medical doctors. Functional medicine is designed to look at the body and illness as a whole, and not relying only on treating the symptoms. In this way, it is a positive complement to traditional Western medicine.

Science Does Not Back Functional Medicine

Our bodies have a remarkable ability to heal themselves, which has been proven time and time again in countless research papers and scholarly articles. This is something you can see with your own eyes.

Functional medicine works in harmony with your body’s natural disease-fighting abilities and is both rooted in scientific principles and utilizes some of the same advanced diagnostic tests that conventional doctors use. One of the general themes that have become popular in mainstream awareness includes diet and gut-health. Encouraging good gut-health is becoming an idea that all holistic and traditional approaches are identifying as an important element in overall health for any individual and chronic health issue.

The Final Word

The fact is, you can absolutely trust a credible practitioner of functional medicine to work with you and your current medical doctor rather than against you and your doctor.

By addressing your body’s needs from a holistic approach, assessing your bodies systems as interconnected and not independent, functional medicine acts as an effective complement to traditional Western approaches.
