Letter from Marilyn (June 2009)

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Dear Readers


There are two articles on pain relief in this issue of Natural News: one on general pain relief for arthritis, back pain and headaches, and another one specifically on help with period pains. It is so important to look at natural ways to relieve pain, because it is becoming more well-known that painkillers can actually be causing more pain rather than relieving it.

I have seen a number of patients in the clinic whose repeated headaches are being caused by the painkillers. The longer the pills are taken, the more resistant the body becomes to their effects and so the person needs to take more or even has to have a stronger painkiller. As the medication wears off there is a withdrawal effect, known as a ‘rebound’ headache, which means that more painkillers need to be taken and so that person is stuck in a vicious circle.

For those of you who are suffering with hay fever I hope you find the article on this subject helpful in reducing the symptoms. 

Do let me know if there are any topics you would particularly like me to cover – and remember to send in your favourite recipes and keep your questions coming!

Kind regards
