It doesn’t matter what level of fitness or mobility you subscribe to, but chances are, you have felt pain at one time or another. Pain can be minor, extreme or anything in between. It can interfere with your life and prevent you from doing the things you enjoy. Of course, taking some pain pills would be the quickest and arguably the easiest action to take? This couldn’t be more wrong. It will just turn into a repetitive cycle of pill-popping, slowly destroying your body. Aspirin and Paracetamol and other pills have serious side effects such as kidney and liver damage and gastrointestinal bleeding. Prescription pain pills or medicines are very addictive and highly toxic to the body. Please check with your doctor before ceasing any medication.
What if there was something that could help that was completely non-toxic. Would you try it? Well, there is! It’s called a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). A TENS is an electronic medical device in which mild electric currents are applied to areas of the skin by a small power kit connected to two electrodes. iTENS is a wireless, portable small round part with electrodes attached (called ‘wings’)—a passive, non-invasive, non-addictive modality with no side effects. TENS works to improve movement, decrease pain perception and may be used to control acute and chronic pain. This little device has been proven effective in over 80% of cases. It is primarily used for pain management.
iTENS models are available that are designed to be used at home, independently. It is approved for over-the-counter use, which means no prescription is necessary. The price of the wing kit is very affordable for pain management.
The human body is proficient in miraculous things, including self-healing. And there are several ways to naturally heal and balance the body that is non-toxic and non-invasive. TENS therapy is one of the several methods that promote the body to heal itself without using drugs or surgery.
