Today in Dunya we want to talk to you about pain. Between 10 and 30% of the world’s population suffers from chronic pain. This means that they have pain on a regular or daily basis, for a period of more than 6 months.
The chronification of diseases and pain is one of the main scourges in the health of today’s society. Drugs help us alleviate symptoms and cope with pain, but they do not offer a solution to reverse the situation from the root.
So it is worth asking, is the absence of pain really health?
To answer this, we must first understand that pain is a means of communication between the body and our conscious mind. It is an alarm signal that something is wrong. In this sense, the only thing painkillers do is silence that voice that warns us that we must fix something, change a habit, improve our diet or sleep. We just don’t want to feel pain, or listen to what he has to tell us. In this way, we get the underlying ailment to continue to get worse and it becomes more and more difficult to deal with the pain. Our body speaks, if we don’t listen to it, it screams, and if we continue to ignore it, it kicks.
From traditional Chinese medicine, the cause of pain is deepened, and the priority is not to eliminate it immediately, but to find the true cause and restore the state of health. That is why diseases such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia can be treated with acupuncture and Shiatsu, improving the quality of life of people considerably.
In addition, chronic pain from the psycho-emotional perspective is a factor that goes closely related to anxiety and depression. Not only because of how eroding it can be to feel pain on a daily basis, but also because of the impotence generated by not being able to do the most common things or having to experience all our activities through this filter. For this reason, psycho-emotional accompaniment is key, and knowledge of relaxation and meditation techniques that give us tools to manage ourselves.
We can’t always avoid pain, but we can not turn it into suffering.
That is why at Dunya we are committed to comprehensive treatments, with techniques as effective as acupuncture and moxibustion, relaxing treatments that help us connect with ourselves such as Shiatsu. Without forgetting the responsibility of each one for their state of health, integrating healthy habits in terms of food, exercise and mental health. For this we also provide tools such as mindful eating and meditation.
We do not fight against pain, we work to maintain health.
We do not resign ourselves to the disease, we accept it and grow to become our best version.
You too can improve your life.
