I have long term chronic pain due to many back surgeries. Been on tons of pain pills for years. I don't take anything anymore. Those things are the devil. This technology looks interesting...
Many times the conditions are perpetuated by eating foods you cannot break down properly from inadiquate enzymes. The metabolites build up in the body and they cause inflammation. Finding out what foods you are intolerant to can help, but the person has to do this,

Opium works on receptors that stimulate euphoria, and as stated above, so were aware of the mechanics of it. There is a drug called Gabapenton that shuts off the receptors, thus pain can not be received by the brain. A much better pain medication. And if not abused, is quite effective. In this case dosages work best by using the prescribed dosage and in fact 'Less is more". Small doses work better than trying to self medicate with higher dosages.
It was designed for seizures and epilepsy, but as discoveries would have it became a good alternative to opiates. I use it and am quite satisfied with it's ability to stop pain. It has changed my life from one of an invalid to one of mobility.

Actually, these pain drugs increase the release and uptake of endomorphins to control the pain. Then our bodies make more and more enzymes to break it down and they have to keep upping the dose just to stay at the same point. It is treating the symptoms, not the diseases or conditions. At this time it is hard to block the enzyme that breaks it down with no bad side effects.
There are better ways and the better ways can fix the condition or disease. Many times the conditions are perpetuated by eating foods you cannot break down properly from inadiquate enzymes. The metabolites build up in the body and they cause inflammation. Finding out what foods you are intolerant to can help, but the person has to do this, A doctor only sees you for twenty minutes, he can't do crap. These metabolic intolerances are not always allergies, allergy testing does not work. Everyone is different, we have to find out ourselves, ask your relatives if they have ever had problems and how they solved the problems.

More Wow. What a bat crap crazy thread this is. There are no super foods that cure anything except hunger. How in the world, does opiate use equate relate to food? Friday night happy hour? No way.
