Natural Pain Relief

DLPA – Natural Pain Killer

Everyday doctors are prescribing pain killers to their patients who are recovering from injuries, operations, migraine headaches, back problems and other conditions. Pharmaceutical companies are researching better formulas to relieve specific types of pains. Most likely, every household in America contains at least one over-the-counter pain killer like Aspirin, Tylenol, Ibuprofin, Motrin or Excedrin. Some pain killers have serious potential side effects and many patients have reactions that cause other problems. If you have tried the major pain medications and have not found relief for your chronic pain, you may respond well to one of the natural painkillers called, DL-Phenylalanine. (DO NOT confuse this amino acid with L-Phenylalanine which is an essential amino acid necessary for synthesizing neurotransmitters in the brain and promoting sexual arousal. L-phenylanine also helps to control appetite.) DLPA is a form of phenylalanine but is formulated using equal parts of D – or synthetic phenylalanine, and L, the natural form of that amino acid.

DLPA has the ability to activate and produce endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
Although available at your local health food store, please check with your doctor because in certain cases it might be contraindicated; such as if you are pregnant, or have PKU, which stands for phenylketonuria. Infants are tested for PKU at the hospitals today.
DLPA may also elevate blood pressure so check with your physician before trying it if you have any circulatory distress.

DLPA has worked wonders for many people who suffer with migraine headaches, severe leg cramps, forms of neuralgia and even backaches. The double benefit is that DLPA is also a natural antidepressant. You know what it feels like to be in pain, and you may remember, if you are not in pain right now, how depressing pain can be. Severe pain monopolizes your every moment. But, DLPA can be helpful to both soothe pain and lift your spirits.

How much should you take? Well, of course we can not prescribe for you, but I can tell you that DLPA is generally available in 375 mg doses and may be taken up to six times daily up to a maximum intake of 1.5grams according to some labels and general info available. Again, check with your doctor before trying this natural pain killer.
