As some of you may know, I'm dealing with a lot of pain with my right ankle right now. I've had two surgeries and am preparing for a third soon. I refuse to take prescription medications for it, except for right after a surgery because of the affects it can have on your body and how addicting they can become, and addictive personalities run in my family on both sides. As for ibuprofen and other NSAIDs they can kill your stomach lining and eventually lead to ulcers or conditions like gastritis, and we all know acetaminophen is horrible for your body as well. I've researched many things, but outside of meditation I have not found anything that may be able to help with pain management outside of these options, which for the most part I refuse. Does anyone know where I could find more information, or have something they use or know someone who uses, that is relatively safe for pain management?
