Chronic Emotional And Physical Pain

With an understanding that the body can heal itself when the right nutrients are available, we can then appreciate the importance of supplying all of the amino acids required to build certain chemicals the body needs to heal.  Concerning chronic emotional and/or physical pain, which many of us deal with, we need to look to the body’s natural pain reducing chemicals: the endorphins.  Endorphins require over 15 amino acids as precursors to synthesize.  Herein lies the beauty behind a complete blend of amino acids; it has all 22 amino acids in a well-balanced formula.

Endorphins are our body’s natural morphine.  When someone is very ill or has had a serious injury or surgery, doctors will often prescribe morphine as a saving grace to relieve acute pain.  However, morphine is a poor long-term solution because it creates many other problems.  The body naturally makes endorphins to manage pain whereas morphine only simulates them.

In life, we may have to deal with long-term emotional and/or physical pain for a variety of reasons.  Initially, when you have an injury or an emotional trauma, your body will supply you with plenty of endorphins to assist in reducing the degree of pain you experience.  The problem is, if the pain continues week after week, month after month, and year after year, your body’s endorphin supplies can easily become depleted.  What’s more, it is very difficult to get enough amino acids in your daily dietary intake to maintain the level of endorphins needed to deal with chronic emotional and/or physical pain.

Here again is the beauty of a complete blend; it makes it easy to refuel your body with ample amino acids needed to increase your endorphins, your body’s natural morphine supply.

Additionally, you may want to add to your supplement intake 500 to 1000 mg of the individual amino acid, dl-phenylalanine (DLPA).  DLPA works as a booster to endorphin levels because d-phenylalanine appears to suppress the rate of endorphin breakdown.
