Chronic pain
When the body constantly aches

“Pain is my constant companion.” “My life is not worth living anymore.” “I’m often depressed because of the pain.”

This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their unbearable chronic pain condition.

A chronic pain illness arises when pain loses its function as a warning signal and is experienced without any noticeable trigger. If pain continues without relief for more than three to six months, it turns into a habit in the brain and it continues even though the cause has been resolved for a long time.

Chronic pain often leads to a reduced pain threshold combined with psychological strain — reactions such as rage, whining or depression.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on chronic pain syndrome?

Chronic pain from an Ayurvedic perspective.

According to Maharishi Ayurveda chronic pain starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of chronic pain, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the affected area of the body. Each pain patient knows that stress and an unstable nervous system can serve as an amplifier for the familiar symptoms.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and each chronic pain syndrome complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
