         Chronic pain may arise from an initial injury, such as a back sprain, a serious accident, whiplash injury, or there may be an ongoing cause, such as illness.

     However, there may also be no clear cause. Other health problems, such as fatigue, sleep disturbance, decreased appetite, and mood changes, often accompany chronic pain. 

    Chronic pain often limits a person’s movements, which can reduce flexibility, strength, and stamina.

Ayurveda Tips for Healthy & Merry Christmas

  
  Christmas is nearly here.

Thought of sharing a few tips to make this festive season even more enjoyable.


   Healthy eating:
