“Pain is the expression of a disturbed sense of life.”
The creation of the pain memory is a life process. The starting point is acute pain stimuli, which, if not treated and especially not attended to, can leave traces in the nervous system (spinal cord, brain).
Pain traces are transmitted via nociceptors, special nerve cells, and their extensions can be found in the skin, muscles, joints, blood vessels, and internal organs. In case of pain, if it is strong enough, electrical signals (depending on personal light charge) are conducted along these nociceptors (pain sensors) to the spinal cord. At the transmission point, the synapses, the signal is converted into messenger substances. The information travels along and triggers electric signals again. The constant change between electric signal and chemical signal (messenger substance) finally reaches the network of many nerve cells. Nerve cells with long projections can reach different brain regions. Upon arrival, the signal is compared, emotionally colored, and perceived as pain to a greater or lesser extent by the cerebral cortex, among other things.
The perception of pain depends on the individual’s mood, time of day, weather, and sleep. Depending on the intensity of the pain, physical reactions occur. For example, the person changes their posture to avoid the pain. These processes only take a few seconds. The transmission of information in the pain processing system of the person’s body is not a one-way street. The brain, through nerve cells with long projections into the spinal cord, controls the transmission at the spinal cord level. This system is constantly active and is particularly activated in dangerous situations.
The pain memory is important because it encourages people to spare a sick area and thus support healing. The cellular mechanisms are learning bodies for the body, teachers. The larger the pain memory, the larger the synapses and the more pain-sensitive the person is. The pain memory also increases. It is also responsible for turning an acute pain into a chronic pain. These resolve as impulses, and a signal is sent to the brain even without stimulation. This leads to incorrect postures and protective measures even though there is no damaging stimulation. It results in a lack of movement and isolation for those affected and also the affected body parts.
We can combat the pain memory with relaxation and behavior renewal, and it will let go of the pain. A simple example is childbirth, where many women forget the labor pain once the child is born. Another example is the so-called phantom pain.
The transfer of pain signals from the central nervous system to the periphery and vice versa always depends on the individual’s deficiency. If the body’s own pain defense is weak, meaning the person’s needs are great, the pain is nourished. Pain is now considered a standalone condition in medicine. Dealing with the pain memory offers many solutions here. Chronic diseases are mainly promoted from a mental level. Fear of pain especially causes many people to resort to medication.
The nerve pathways that transmit pain impulses throughout the body are constantly being stimulated, similar to constant training, resulting in the pain becoming self-perpetuating. If the stimulation (programming) occurs 100x, 200x or more, then no pain stimulus is needed to keep the cell “firing”. This means that there can be no inflammation in the periphery, Dies ist ein geschützter Inhalt für kostenpflichtige Mitglieder. Noch kein Premium Mitglied? Hier klicken!
