Note: The water cures may not work for everyone. Effectiveness depends on a number of factors. It will most likely work if the pain is the result of or related to a fluid and electrolyte imbalance. When it does not, there are additional treatments that may be beneficial and help the body to eliminate the underlying cause of pain. Additionally, water cures may help these other treatments work even better.
So, what can water and salt do for you? Here is the list of what it may help.
As the above become links, click on each to find out specifics of how it works.
Pain can speak volumes. It can tell what is going on inside your body. Pain is actually good. It tells us something is wrong so we can fix it. Fix the problem and you eliminate the pain. Medicine seeks to eliminate the pain, not the problem.
Treating pain is easy when you understand how and why people say water cures pain. With any pain management, effectively treatment starts with the cause. Eliminating pain requires finding the underlying reason for the pain. This understanding will also help you help others who may be dealing with this undesirable feeling.
Modern medicine often treat pain differently. Medicine is used to mask the pain. This is good when you break a bone or have surgery. You will heal faster and better with out pain. But the pain we feel that does not go away, the pain we live with, this is what we are focusing on here.
Our bodies are designed to tell us when something is wrong (pain). When we fix what is wrong, our bodies are designed to allow us to enjoy pleasure, even if just that of being alive.
To determine the cause, it is first necessary to know what types of pain you have. It is also important to know the intensity, duration.
Pain is the process of feeling an unpleasant sensation as the result of an injury, tissue damage or as a sign or symptom of a disease process.
The most common pains we hear of are headache, backache, arthritis pain and metastatic pain or cancer pain.
Your pain is a subjective feeling. That means what you experiences is different than what others experience or how they experience pain. It is difficult to describe a subjective feeling. Think of how you would describe the taste of a cherry?
To make your pain description easier, it will help to know the pain process.
What is the Pain Process How does our body deal with discomfort.You will learn about transduction, transmission, perception and modulation.
What are the Three Classifications of Pain? Most writing on pain only refer to two classifications. They are acute, chronic and metastatic sensations. What are the differences?
What are the Three Types of Pain Inside the classifications, there are types of pain. These types are based on the source or which nerve cells the pain is coming from. You already know this because you know that headache pain, the pain we feel from a cut, bruise, or sprain are all different. The types are based on the nociceptor source, the detecting neurons or nerve cells from where pain originates.
These sources include cutaneous (skin), somatic (outer body), visceral (inner organs), phantom (imagined pain experienced by amputees), and neuropathic pain (pain from nerves). Is painful a good thing? Well, yes, it can be if it warns you and you take steps to correct the cause of the pain.
Why should you know or care about this when all you want is for it to go away?
With this understanding, you are better able to communicate what is going on. Remember, it is not just to you doctors or health practitioners. It includes friends and families. You will better be able to help your body treat and eliminate the cause.
If you have a tooth ache, you can get an oral form of Novocain to make the pain go away. (note: The water cures is a solution for tooth pain...make a salt water rinse. It is amazing how well it works.) This will only last for a short while. Or you can get oil of cloves and make it go away longer. But until the cause for the pain is addressed, It will keep coming back. The cause could even result in more serious health complications. So it is important to treat the cause.
The same is true of the pain we feel in our bodies. Pain is your bodies cry for help. Your bodies saying, 'Hey, I need you to take care of me and what is making me hurt.'
