At some point in our lives, we all unfortunately have to deal with pain. Whether it is a headache, a pulled muscle, an old injury flaring up, or a chronic condition causing the discomfort, dealing with pain is never fun. For some of us older people, even sleeping the wrong way can lead to a day of reaching for a heat pad and some relief! It is important to find ways to manage pain because it can have a big effect on the body that people aren’t always aware of.
Pain can cause a physiological stress response that includes increased breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure changes to compensate for the increasing amount of oxygen and nutrients going to your organs. When we fail to relieve our pain or tough it out, it can cause a prolonged stress state which leads to harmful effects on multiple body systems. This can contribute to fatigue, sleeping problems, more muscle soreness, changes in appetite, and mood swings.
Cortisol levels rise with pain episodes. Cortisol is a hormone that regulates a wide range of vital processes throughout your body, like metabolism and your immune response. It plays a key role in helping your body respond to stress so keeping your cortisol level regulated is important and pain management is one way to keep things in check.
At Maple Organics, we strive to keep families healthier and pain free without the use of toxins and harmful chemicals. It is important to founder Rosy Atwal to offer clean, certified organic plant based options for this reason. Muscle and Joint Therapy are two of our best selling formulas for pain. The power of plant based butters along with organic essential oils such as rosemary, camphor and arnica have been shown to bring relief to those suffering from muscle and joint pain, on everything from backs to knees to temples and neck when a headache arrives. Before reaching for a toxin based formula or a bottle of Advil, give our therapies a try. Layer on and apply heat or take a warm bath or shower to amplify the effects and bring fast, soothing relief.
