I’ve never known an active person who doesn’t periodically have a minor muscle strain or ligament strain. Its just part of the job description. And, if there’s never a small tweak here and there then the effort put forth to achieve top performance fitness is probably not happening.
You know what these minor tweaks are like.
It’s that little twinge of pain that’s not enough to make you not train. But, enough to make you wonder if should.
You get up in the morning and the muscle is a little tight and sore, but after a few minutes of movement it disappears. And, often, certain movements create the pain.
The usual fix with such minor ailments is to, first, do nothing until it gets progressively worse. Then, some form of self-care, such as OTC anti-inflammatories, is tried that usually isn’t affective. Next, as a last resort, professional care is sought. And, the care most often hoped for is to continue to train at the normal level and the pain and stiffness goes away on its own or with the help of medicine or therapy.
So, here are some simple things to do at home first to help resolve the condition the first time. And, if they don’t work than a professional consultation should be sought:
If after two weeks there’s no noticeable improvement then seek professional care.
Whether you do self-care or under professional direction a key component to recover from these persistent, low-grade conditions is make sure that once the tissue has healed that ideal movement mechanics are restored, otherwise, the problem will return.
The key with small conditions is to deal with them correctly the first time as aggressively as possible so they don’t become habitual.
Physicians over thousands of years have observed a link between a patient’s mental state and how swiftly they recover. It is a long-standing axiom that people who are determined to get better and maintain a healthy frame of mind recover more quickly, with better results.
But what if we told you that it’s a two-way street? That specific health conditions can cause conditions like depression and anxiety?
In 1931, decades before the first antidepressant and antianxiety medications had been developed, a physician named Yaskin discovered that clinical depression is the earliest manifestation of pancreatic cancer. Further research demonstrated that patients who suffered from gastrointestinal malignancies carried the greatest risk of suicide – which was one of the first science-based flags indicating that the digestive system can have an impact on mental health.
The simplest way to reduce toxins in your body is to avoid them. Despite today’s crazy world that has toxins everywhere, there are steps you can take that will reduce your toxin intake. This gives your body a chance to get rid of the “backlog” and catch up.
Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.
But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
