Move over, baseball.
The season might be in full swing, but America’s got a new national pastime. And this one isn’t a sport.
Just the opposite.
This one will STOP YOU from playing sports.
New numbers show Americans are playing the chronic pain game, and on most days, we’re all on the losing side.
But not today.
I’ve got a new pastime for you – a GAME-CHANGER that can END the pain for good so you can get back out and play.
Or at the very least, you can keep up with the grandkids again!
Waking up from our chronic pain nightmare
Whether it’s back pain, migraines, knee problems, or any other ongoing pain, you’re not alone in your suffering.
The number of people reporting chronic pain has skyrocketed in a generation.
Back in 1997, a third of adults had at least one ongoing pain condition. By 2014, that number jumped to 41 percent, according to a study published in January in the Journal of Pain.
You can bet the true numbers are even higher today. And when you include all of the folks who have more occasional but still debilitating, forms of pain, the numbers are probably off the charts.
But today, we can subtract one from that number.
Ditch the chronic pain without the drugs
Docs will say you’ve essentially got three stages for dealing with pain:
Stage 1: Tough it out. Just deal with it, right? But that’ll only get you so far, then it’s onto…
Stage 2: OK, you need something more. Take some pain pills. What could possibly go wrong? (Hello, opioid crisis).
Stage 3: Still not getting relief? Then it’s the knife for you – surgery, including spinal procedures and joint replacements.
But none of that’s true. You DON’T have to tough it out. You DON’T have to take pain pills. And in most cases, you certainly DON’T need surgery.
And today, I’ve got THREE PROVEN QUICK FIXES for the THREE OF THE WORST FORMS of chronic pain.
A study in the journal Neurology found that 75 mg of butterbur per day can cut migraine pain in HALF, doubling the results of the placebo.
A stunning number of back pain cases are caused or worsened by poor sleep habits. Sleeping on your side, but elongated instead of in the fetal position and with a pillow between your knees, can take the pressure off your back and end the pain overnight.
Your joints are BEGGING for a little help – and you can GIVE IT to them. UC-II collagen is so effective at helping relieve damaged joints that one study found it worked THREE TIMES better than glucosamine and chondroitin.
And of course don’t forget the power of natural anti-inflammatories such as fish oil as well as proven topical pain relievers including capsaicin, menthol, DMSO, and MSM. One quick rub and pain just about ANYWHERE will often vanish within minutes.
