DR. HENDRIEX | PAIN RELIEF NUTRITION PLAN
Have you tried any of the following methods to eliminate your pain?
- Chiropractic Care
- Physical Therapy
- OTC pain-relief medicine
- Steroid Injections
- Back Surgery
If so, did it work? Did you receive long-term relief from your headaches, nerve pain, back pain, neck pain, muscle pain, or joint pain? If not, then there can be an underlying. biochemical imbalance component which is triggering the pain that needs to be prioritized and fixed.
What's a biochemical imbalance?
I often hear this from my clients when digging deeper into discovering the possible underlying issues which could be triggering the pain. A biochemical imbalance is a dysfunctional chemical process happening in the body which affects various metabolic functions.
For instance, it's thought that an imbalance in the neurotransmitter brair chemical of serotonin could be a possible reason why people have depression. And a simple deficiency or dysfunction in the amino acid tryptophan, which is the ingredient in turkey that makes you sleepy, could be a possible explanation to the serotonin and depression health problems (1). Tryptophan is a nutrient needed to naturally produce serotonin in the body. It's amazing how just one simple nutrient in the body, when imbalanced, can have such a profound effect on quality of life!
The entire pharmaceutical industry has made billions of dollars from anti-depressant medication treatments, when in fact, possibly just increasing or fixing a tryptophan issue with some people could simply solve the mood condition. After reading this it makes you just want to eat more turkey, right?
There are hundreds of metabolic processes happening in our body every day controlling how we think, feel, look and more. And just one biochemical imbalance could trigger a cascade of unwanted pain symptoms.
Without targeting the biochemical imbalances, then long-term pain relief most likely can never be achieved. We must address the root cause of why the pain is happening, rather than just masking the symptoms.

I've found there can be multiple reasons why someone may be suffering from chronic pain and related symptoms.
First, and usually the most common, an injury from an accident could be causing the headache, joint, muscle, or nerve pain.
Second, just the general process of aging and the wear and tear of joint and muscle problems can increase inflammation and pain.
However, if neither of these scenarios are applicable to you, then a possible biochemical imbalance could be the problem to your pain.
