Recently I had the opportunity to meet with an ActiveForever customer in one of our retail stores, and had a wonderful conversation during which we discussed alternative treatments and non drug related treatments for pain relief and depression. Mary found out about us from her son, a therapist in Scottsdale, Arizona. A psychiatrist herself, she’s seen how pain causes psychological problems, addictions, problems in life, family, decrease in daily living activities and overall quality of life. Chronic pain is often the reason people stop doing what they love to do; the things we love to do (tennis, golf, travel, etc) help generate endorphins and other “feel good” body chemicals so a decrease in those further aggravates depression and related conditions.
Unfortunately Mary also suffers from chronic pain, so she is interested in natural pain relief treatments (those outside of prescription medications) for both herself and her clients. Mary asked me to share additional pain relief products with her in an email following our conversation, and an employee suggested many people would love to know the same information so I decided to share my email with you here. Whether you personally suffer from pain issues, or you are a psychologist or psychiatrist treating people in pain, with addictions to pain killers, coping with mood altering side effects of prescription medications, and depression the following offers a wide variety of ideas for pain relief:
Hi Mary! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you during your visit here. You’ll laugh, but right now, the cashier named Cheryl who works at the Safeway at (location omitted for customer privacy) has the Thermotex. She has a bulging disc in her back that even Cortisone shots don’t help, so one of our staff lent her the Thermotex because we know it works wonders! She had had a tough time mentally since her physical pain had been impinging on her ability to get through her day.
Next time you are here feel free to try it out in our store. Alternatively, if you want to buy one, I just know you’ll find it to be amazing.
For another great, effective product this is AMAZING!!! There’s nothing like it out there and it’s the only FDA approved device of its kind. This is the device I said only requires 2 minute treatment times!
If you want to spend less, this light relief therapy is outstanding for the money, and you can get it with the extra-large treatment pad attachment.
I regard to your counseling practice, I thought you’d love incorporating these creative and effective ideas into your treatment plans. Many patients are looking for a quick fix and a secret pill. Many of ActiveForever’s products offer instant shifts/relief, and also gets a solid message across to your client that they are in control and the mind/body is a powerful tool for healing and personal growth/change.
These are some of the SAD lighting devices I told you about. They really do work.
We’re also big advocates of keeping people healthy, happy and off drugs…especially mood altering drugs, but also off of drugs that can have mood altering side effects.
Some ways of getting endorphins flowing:
NitroFit is worth EVERY penny…helps with balance training, neuro rehab and fall prevention too.
Another majorly effective way of sparking endorphins, healing, circulation, mood elevation.
Anything in our fitness department, especially Yoga and Pilates related. A lot of our exercise equipment comes with step by step instructions and great programs.
This biofeedback shirt can be custom adjusted and vibrates every time your posture needs correction/straightening. Works wonders!
Some highly effective biofeedback devices that help anger management and that also help people avoid blood pressure medications all together!
This reminded me we also believe good sleep positively affects the day a lot!
We have lots of sleep aids, snore stoppers, sound machines, oxygen therapy machines, but that’s enough for one email.
