Herbs for Pain with Thomas Easely
In order to excel at creating an effective herbal pain-relieving formula, it is important to understand how pain is created in the body, and how to match classes of herbs to patterns of pain physiology. Chronic pain frequently arises from issues of the structural system, necessitating a comprehensive assessment of the structural system, and a therapeutic model to plug herbs into. Understanding the reasons, root causes, and mechanisms of pain in the body lead us to choosing herbs unique to each person and situation.
In this class three hour class, I will present a model of assessment for structural system pain and use real examples from my practice to exemplify how to build effective herbal formulas for different pain presentations. This class will delve into systemic anti-inflammatories, topical anti-inflammatories, topical analgesics, central acting analgesics, antispasmodics, hypnotic analgesic, vulneraries, and more. In addition, we will touch on non-herbal treatments such as body work, that can be beneficial for each type of pain presentation.
