Short Circuit Ion Channels Cause Pain

  New research shows that the pain signal may be simply an "electrical leak" from an ion channel.  As previously written there is a connection between the opening and closing of ion channels and electrical polarity charges.  The new finding by a team of scientists at KU Leuven indicates the actual pain message is electrical and is short circuited due to chemical changes in the ion channels.  The ongoing research is showing the chemical and physical relationship of pain and electrical polarities.

                              Tens Machine for Crohns flare up pain

by Fiona Rainbow
(Staffordshire England)

I am having a crohns flare up, my first major one since I was 18 yrs. I am now 37yrs. Luckily I have had a long period in remission. The pain is unbearable this time, however, I am managing to block the pain completely with my babycare TENs machine whilst I am trying the modulen ibd diet. I have been prescribed steroids but I didn't like the side effects when I was 18 and therefore I am trying to avoid taking them.
I just wanted to suggest the Tens Machine to anyone out there suffering the pain of crohns. I was up to 8 doses of co-codamol a day to try and control the pain and I think that they were making the symptons worse as they themselves are hard on the system.I now am only taking 1 dose of co-codamol before I go to bed to ensure a good nights sleep and to take a break from the Tens. I don't know what I would do without my Tens at the moment. I am using the Elle Babycare tens machine (it is the one I used during labour). I have had 3 boys during my time in remission and had no crohns symtoms at all during my pregnancies and all natural births.
I would always prefer to choose natural remedies over drugs however I know that this is not always possible. Has anyone had remission success from following a food combining diet.
