Pain Management

Pain occurs in over 70 percent of the people in the world, at any particular time. Pain can be acute, for example, after a strain, trauma, or surgery or it can be chronic due to diseases such as arthritis, cancer, or diabetes. Most pain is sensed when nerves are deprived of their normal amounts of oxygen. This occurs when blood flow is decreased. A reasonable way to decrease pain might be to increase circulation. For example, swelling and edema in the joints of patients with arthritis cuts off blood flow through small capillaries that normally supply blood and oxygen to nerves.

Diabetes is a disease characterized by progressive deterioration of blood supply to organs and tissues throughout the body. Commonly recognized symptoms of this decline include vision problems, kidney dysfunction sometimes to the point of kidney failure, and cardiovascular heart disease. When blood flow to the lower extremities decreases in patients with diabetes, the symptoms of neuropathy develop including pain, tingling, numbness, and loss of sensation. The lack of feeling is the primary cause of falls and fractures, wounds, and amputations, all serious consequences of diabetes. The lack of feeling is a direct result of the progressive decrease in blood flow to nerves. Therefore, declining blood flow is a major cause of pain. Improving blood flow may well lead to less pain, less falls, faster wound healing, and a better quality of life. Arthritis and diabetes are just two examples of serious diseases that cause pain and reduce the quality of life for people. There are many others in which altered circulation, swelling, and edema are the basis for painful symptoms.

The effect of anti-oxidants such as those found in Kyäni Sunrise™ is known to reduce the swelling associated with free radicals formed after tissue injury. Anti-oxidants lessen pain (1). In addition, lowering cholesterol and therefore preserving the integrity of the blood vessel wall that attends the consumption of tocotrienols found in Kyäni Sunset™ will help maintain blood flow and oxygen delivery to tissues (2). Kyäni Nitro FX™ and Kyäni NitroXtreme™ produce the direct vasodilator nitric oxide (3). Interestingly, some drugs such as morphine also decrease pain directly, without an increase in circulation, by increasing nitric oxide (4). Kyäni Nitro FX™ and Kyäni Nitro Xtreme™ may well have “two effects” in people with pain—a direct effect, as is the case for drugs like morphine, and an indirect effect, including better blood flow to the nerves themselves.

Taken together, the Kyäni Health Triangle™ is the perfect combination to prevent or, at the very least, attenuate the severity of pain related to poor blood flow. The Kyäni Health Triangle™ is a combination of three simple, effective supplements that work together to increase circulation. Using them together should help reduce pain from whatever cause and whether it be acute or chronic.
