With the approaching July initiative to recognize chronic pain in Australia, Sydney-based vitamin e-store highlights benefits of natural products without addictive effects.
(PRUnderground) July 8th, 2020
Statistics from the Australian government show that 3.24 million of the country’s residents live with chronic pain. As Australia prepares to observe National Pain Week, an initiative by Chronic Pain Australia to increase awareness of pain and its associated challenges, Vitamins Only encourages sufferers to consider natural options.
Vitamins Only has been helping people discover improved health for over 14 years. They began as a brick-and-mortar pharmacy but soon found their business flooded with a high demand for top-quality natural supplements. Today, they are a leading online vitamin store known for their nature-based products, which are among the highest quality organic supplements and vitamins in Australia.
Opioids are commonly prescribed for pain management, but they are heavily associated with addiction and overdose. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported that up to 1 in 4 people who receive long-term opioid therapy in a primary care setting struggles with opioid use disorder. The opioid crisis that racked America is spreading abroad, and Australia is not immune. Death rates from opioids have more than doubled in Australia in the past decade.
In addition to addiction, opioids can cause a host of other troubling side effects including tolerance (meaning people need more of the drug to achieve the same pain relief), heightened sensitivity to pain, depression, decreased testosterone, sleepiness, foggy brain, and digestive problems and nausea.
Pharmacist Vinai Lakhani, Co-Founder of Vitamins Only, said that as the dark side of prescription pain killers becomes more apparent, people are turning to natural therapies.
“There are some very effective pain relief supplements that can help reduce the inflammation that is triggering the pain,” said Vinai. “Omega-3s have been shown to be very effective anti-inflammatory agents as well as turmeric and minerals such as magnesium. Resveratrol has been shown to enhance the effects of pain medications — decreasing the amount that patients need.”
With the increased focus on chronic pain due to Pain Week, which is scheduled to start on July 22, Vinai said that he hopes people will be more sensitive to the needs of Australians who deal with pain on a daily basis and also open-minded about seeking the most appropriate treatments.
“Prescription medications have their place and can be a very potent source of relief, but they are not the only option,” said Vinai. “My company is urging people to consult with a pain relief specialist, get educated about a broad range of pain relief treatments form both Eastern and Western medicine, and make the best decision based on risks and benefits.”
