With the rise in opioid related addictions and deaths, the need for no-pill therapies is a crucial step necessary of modern medicine. Although the answers are obvious, successful and effective treatments and methods may not be. Thankfully the practitioners at Acubalance have a plethora of toolboxes filled to the brim of inflammatory and pain fighting tips and treatments.

Chronic inflammation is rampant in today’s society. Factors like poor diet (think artificial sugar, high fructose corn syrup, oily fried foods, heavily processed snacks and dairy products, gluten etc…), environmental pollution, stress, lack of sleep, medications, and drugs, and environmental chemicals all play a role in slowly adding increased amounts of inflammation in our body. Chronic low levels of inflammation puts stress on the body’s immune system and can eventually cause chronic pain syndromes, digestive issues, skin disorders, and muscle and joint pain.
Low Level Laser Therapy (Cold Laser)
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive, pain-free, light-based therapy that uses red and infrared light to target inflamed, injured and diseased tissues. Cold laser has been shown to reduce pain by blocking painful stimuli by sensory neurons, reduces inflammation by removing inflammatory markers, and reduces muscle spasm. It also treats swelling around nerve roots by improving lymphatic flow and stimulates tissue repair and wound healing by, increasing collagen production, and angiogenesis (the repairing of blood vessels). LLLT also stimulates the central nervous system by increasing serotonin and endorphin levels (the body’s natural pain relieving chemicals). Acubalance’s signature laser and acupuncture treatments have been shown to be a powerful tool for reducing pain and inflammation and to activate the body’s natural healing response.
The No Pain Diet
Food truly is one of the most simple and powerful medicines. The key to a healthy diet is to focus on low glycemic and anti-inflammatory foods. There are also certain key foods to include that have extra inflammation fighting and pain reducing qualities. Dark cherries have been shown to function like aspirin to treat joint pain in the body. Tahini (crushed up sesame seeds) are a rich source of magnesium and is great for treating muscle contraction causing headaches, while the antioxidants and enzymes in papaya have been shown to have a great anti-inflammatory effect on back pain. Food and stress reduction are key to reducing systemic inflammation.
