Pain (Chronic Pain)

An unhealthy history of panacea in the past has often acquired medicinal plants with the ability to mitigate pain. Inflammation and pain are the accompanying phenomenon of most diseases. Probably the most well-known opium was an addictive but very potent analgesic that is still used in the case of fatally ill. Opium was a part of the renowned Venetian scout, as well as the all-around laudanum he wore in his hilt of Paracelsus. I am mainly interested in natural analgesics, which are generally beneficial to health - analgesic adapogens.

Very simply, there are two types of pain: acute and chronic. Acute pain occurs immediately after the injury. Chronic pain is long-lasting and mostly associated with inflammation of the affected part of the body. Pain is one of the four attributes of inflammation . In addition, there is a pain from inflammation independent, but these cases are rather rare. Thus, chronic pain can be cushioned at two levels:

  1. By suppressing inflammation
  2. By suppressing the perception of pain in the brain

Most common analgesics, including adaptogens, relieve pain by suppressing inflammation. The perception of pain in the brain, on the other hand, dampens opioid and cannabinoid analgesics ( Walker2002can ).

Specific pains:

Effect of adaptogens against chronic pain (analgesic)

This category mainly includes anti-inflammatory adaptogens , which are large amounts. Practically all classical adaptogens have greater or lesser anti-inflammatory effects. Opioids and cannabinoids that cushion CNS pain are also of natural origin, but are not among adaptogens.
