What Is Pain?

Pain is Nature's Tough Love

Majid Ali, M.D.

 

I know some things about pain. For 35 years, I controlled my migraine attacks with injections of Demerol (an opiate drug) and Vistaril (a drug that controls vomiting). I have not taken these drugs in last 17 years, since I learned to prevent migraine attacks with natural mesuares.

I estimate conservatively that I cared for over 9,500 patients with chronic illnesses. Nearly all of them suffered significant pain. They taught me important lessons and gave me valuable insights into the nature of pain. Below, in simple words, is how I look at the problem of chronic pain now and why I think a person with chronic pain can have only one authentic primary physician—herself or himself.

Pain is Nature's Tough Love

Below, in simple words, is how I look at the problem of chronic pain and the need for becoming one's own primary physician—a doctor within:

* Pain is Nature's tough love.

* Pain is separation from one's nature.

* Pain is Nature's way of asking for a change.

* If not heeded, Nature perpetuates pain to demand change.

* If still ignored, Nature intensifies pain to force change.

* Pain is the body's cry for spontaneity of the spirit.

* Pain is the body's cry for fluidity in life.

* Pain is the body's cry for order in the body.

* Pain is the body's cry for balance.

* Pain is separation from one's nature.

* Pain is the body's cry for oxygen.

* Pain is the body's cryfor ridding acids.

* Pain is the body's cry for normalizing fee radical activity.

* Pain is the body's cry for spontaneity.

Pain, First and Foremost, Is An Oxygen problem

Every chronic pain is some cells' cry for oxygen. This, in simple words, is the core of my Oxygen Model Pain. In my series of tutorials on pain, I present a large body of clinical, biochemical, and electromagnetic observations to support my oxygen view of pain.

Pain in different cultures means different things to different people. This is so because pain is a sense a sensory perception in medical parlanceintricately lconnected to the emotional and physical states of the person. It is not a disease, nor a discrete bodily state. This is a crucial for understanding how every aspect of pain, in the final analysis, is an oxygen problem.

I had certain ideas of pain during four decades of my work as a surgeon, a pathologist, and an immunologist. In those years, I suffered migraine attacks. Since vomiting accompanying migraine did not allow me to keep any painkillers down, I gave myself Demerol injection for relief. My work in integrative medicine changed all that. Then I taught myself control of migraine by assuring optimal hydration, preventing rapid high-low sugar roller coasters (hypoglycemic-hyperglycemic shifts) and consequent rapid insulin shifts, addressing issues of mold and food allergy, and controlling vasospasm with self-regulatory methods — all measures that restore oxygen homeostasis, locally or systemically. I have not had to take Demerol during the last eight years. I have a prolapsed lumbar disc which sometimes caused disabling backache. During those years, I also taught myself control of that pain with limbic breathing32 — an energetic method of breathing with extended periods of exhalation (see Healing Miracles and the Bite of the Gray Dog33 for details of other effective self-regulatory methods). For years, I have controlled my back pain with limbic breathing, without any painkillers, manipulations, laser or other therapies.

I point out that the direct evidence for my Oxygen Model of Pain comes from the efficacy of oxygen therapies— oxygen by mask and hyperbaric oxygen—for controlling headaches and migraine attacks.34-37 Specifically, in one double-blind trial breathing 100% oxygen for 15 minutes or less during headache episodes controlled or significantly reduced the pain of acute cluster attacks in all subjects.34 Not surprisingly, one fourth of the study participants experienced cluster attacks soon after the treatment was stopped35 — since various elements putting in jeopardy oxygen homeostasis were not addressed. Administration of higher concentrations of oxygen during the postoperative period relieves or reduces the intensity of postoperative pain. It appears to both reduce the release of substance P and influence pain inhibitory pathways in the peripheral nerves. Correlation between urinary substance P and bladder pain has been documented.

 

Feeling Pain, Thinking Oxygen

In c ompanion tutorial, I present my unifying Oxygen Model of Pain. Simply stated, this model shows all factors that cause chronic pain states, as well all remedies that relieve such pain, primarily do so by restoring on or more of the following aspects of oxygen homeostasis:

1. Oxygen-driven cellular energetics,

2. Oxygen-driven cellular development and multiplication,

3. Oxygen-driven removal of cellular grease (oxygen’s detergent functions),

4. Oxygen-activation of the enzyme systems of the body,

5. Oxygen-driven cellular detox mechanisms.

Epidemiology of Pain

How large is the "pain problem?" Pain surveys are notoriously unreliable and underestimate the magnitude of the problem. They nearly provide useless data when it comes to emotional pain. In general, pain is reportedly the main complaint for being seen in the emergency department in more than 50% of the times in the United States. For people visiting their doctors, the comparable number is 30%. Of course this does not take into accounts painful states for which people do not consult their doctors. One survey of 6,636 children reported that 54% had experienced pain in the three months preceding the survey. One of every three such children reported frequent and intense pain. Young girls experience pain more frequent ly and intesnsely.

I continue these brief comments on the nature of pain and the clinical applications of my Oxygen Model of Pain in tutorials listed below.
