Needles stuck in someone's lower back with smoking things attached. In Bergen, acupuncture is an unmatched natural pain management tool.

Conventional medicine tells you that pain is something you simply deal with. However, coexisting with pain is a choice. If you’re looking for natural, alternative pain relievers in Bergen County, acupuncture and other holistic practices are perfect solutions. Admittedly, it’s hard finding a holistic practitioner you can trust, and it’s even harder finding reliable information about natural pain management. Luckily, at Amla Healing Arts, I’m a certified bodywork therapist, acupuncturist, and an unrivaled expert in holistic, multidisciplinary, integrative approaches.

Here are 3 ways to manage pain naturally:

1. Turmeric

One of nature’s best pain killers is Turmeric. A spice that supplies curry with its distinct yellow color and flavor, turmeric contains a vital compound: Curcuma.

Curcuma is an antioxidant that protects your body from free radical molecules that can wreak havoc on cells and tissues. Turmeric is applied in treatment for myriad conditions, including:

  • Stomach aches
  • Cancer
  • Indigestion
  • Ulcers
  • Psoriasis

Furthermore, because it alleviates inflammation, turmeric is often considered a natural pain reliever. A study revealed the pain-relieving benefits of Curcuma extract are analogous with ibuprofen when used for pain management.

Turmeric is a great, natural remedy in Bergen, just like acupuncture and other holistic treatments. If you’re unsure how to integrate turmeric into your daily life, or if you’re unconvinced about its efficacy, you’ve come to the right place.

At Amla Healing Arts, I can answer all your questions, manage your pain, and ensure your body is a well-oiled machine.

2. Cloves

People have been using cloves as a natural means of pain amelioration for years. Historically, it’s commonly applied to alleviate toothaches.

It’s proven clove gel is as effective as benzocaine gel, which is used by dentists to reduce needle pain. It’s also widely speculated cloves have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antiviral properties that render them an excellent source of natural healing.

An active ingredient in cloves is eugenol, which is a pain killer included in some pain rubs. Rubbing clove oil on gums temporarily attenuates toothache pain. However, applying too much clove oil can potentially harm your gums.

It’s important to see a specialist before applying clove oil or taking capsules. At Amla Healing Arts, I provide transparent, expert counsel and never steer clients wrong.

3. Acupuncture

Ultimately, in Bergen, acupuncture is an incomparable, natural pain reliever. An ancient Chinese medical practice, acupuncture restores equilibrium to your body’s natural energy pathways.

This practice involves systematically inserting tiny, thin needles into your body at pre-designated points. These points are documented and substantiated by thousands of years of practice. Acupuncture releases serotonin in your body, which is a euphoric chemical that eases pain.

Though it can be maligned as a pseudo-science, research corroborates its pain-relieving properties. Acupuncture is proven to manage multitudes of pain types, including:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Knee pain
  • And more

Even better, it’s an excellent preventative measure that mitigates how often you’re afflicted with tension headaches and prevents migraine headaches. It’s also a viable solution for manage chronic pain. In some ways, acupuncture is a miracle procedure: it can treat over 100 conditions!
