Just by inhaling a few deep breaths of Pain Formula, hundreds of pain reducing neurotransmitters are flooding the body through the central nervous system. These pain reducing molecules bind to the mu opioid receptors and instantly turn down the intensity of the pain signal before it reaches the cerebral cortex and turns into conscious awareness. Once the pain signals are recognized, the brain sends a signal to the hypothalamus ordering the release of even more pain-killing endorphins that have analgesic effects, further reducing pain. Muscles contractions triggered in any of psychosomatic defense response can get stuck including emotional feelings. This stuck muscle contraction is known as a “Trigger Point.” Triggered Points hinder blood flow just like a kink in a garden hose prevents water flow. Trigger Points can prevent a muscle from Healing and Joints from eliminating built up toxins because the blood feeds every single one of your 65 trillion cells and carries away the cellular waste by-products.
The Pain Formula is much more than a temporary band-aid treatment because it encourages the body to release chronic muscle contractions so the body can heal itself. Applied to the location Pain Formula offers quick relief due to the high percentage of eugenol found in the clove EO. Eugenol numbs out the pain. Dentists used clove oil before Novocain was available. The cypress EO increases circulation so the “painkiller constituents” offered by the other EOs in this formula, will reach cells faster. Marjoram EO relaxes muscle tightness and muscle spasms. The ginger and peppermint help to reduce inflammation. Eucalyptus reduces inflammation as well, with an added benefit. Eucalyptus EO intensifies the benefits of all the other EOs and brings in a tremendous amount of oxygen. The black pepper supports the repair of muscle damage and adds a soothing heat sensation. All EOs help eliminate toxins stored in the joints.
