Recent discoveries in pain relief

SPMs – ever heard of them? Neither had I. Until I attended the recent International Natural Medicine Congress, where Dr Cristina Lopez Vicario pointed out the existence of these transient “chemicals” that have a profound effect on nerves – they can block pain.

Made normally in small amounts and acting on your own internal cannabinoid receptors, concentrated in higher amounts they have been found to act effectively as natural pain-killers, allowing a speciialised part of your brain to produce GABA – a neurone-inhibiting agent.

This procuces a mild, pain-blocking action, similar to the pharmaceutical GABApentin.

And they are free of the crippling side effects of these drugs. And no side effects have been noted with their use.
