Ayurveda Approach to Pain Management is for Millions of North Americans are reported to be suffering from chronic pain, a number larger than all the people suffering from diabetes & heart disease. For pain, we generally take painkillers, but this has led to a major cause of addiction and death by overdose.
We consume most of the prescription drugs called opioids—the strongest and most addictive pain pills. Evidence shows that long-term opioid drug use triggers a vicious cycle of continued pain and addiction.
Ayurveda suggests a different approach to pain relief. It begins by viewing pain as a mind-body experience. Ayurveda recognizes this power of the mind to relieve pain and strengthens this force through the use of therapies. Ayurveda presents Panchakarma & pain-reducing techniques that are effective and non-addictive.
According to Ayurveda, Vata is the main dosha involved in pain. It is responsible for generating and spreading pain. However, a specific fraction of Vata is responsible for pain in a specific region such as; generalized pain is caused by VyanaVata, headache – Prana and VyanaVata, abdominal pain – Samana and Apana Vata and chest pain – Vyana and Prana Vata.
According to Ayurveda, chronic pain is caused by doshic imbalances and is influenced by many factors like diet, digestion, accumulation of toxins, stress, exercise levels, and daily routine. Ayurveda explains the origin of the pain is due to vitiated Vata dosha, once Vata dosha is treated efficiently the pain subsides automatically.
