A Possible Effective Non-Opiod Chronic Pain Treatment

Essentially blocking the pain signal by blocking the nerve's voltage-gated sodium channel known as Nav1.7 with modified spider venom.

A relatively short non-technical read. Has an embedded video that does show some tarantulas, so don't watch if you can't handle that.

The tarantula, European version, was falsely accused of giving people fits once upon a time.

She does mostly her own arrangements and usually starts her vids with a short talk about the composition, its history and etc.

It didn't have to be this way.

she really does some great stuff. One of these days I'll have to do a sat or sun sampler to fill the afternoon.

Many are finding relief from cbd/thc combos.
Cannabidiol (CBD), has had great results for those afflicted with many of the epilepsy syndromes.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), has shown positive results with chronic pain in many.
I personally have been the provider of medical marijuana for a patient with implanted morphine pumps.
In less than a year the pumps were removed.
I would try spider poison in a heartbeat if nothing else worked. I also love spiders so it's a non issue of ick factor.
Thanks for the link!

Regardless of the path in life I chose, I realize it's always forward, never straight.

Its an amino acid, a food. That keeps your body's own pain relievers in the bloodstream longer.

It really works.

If you have disc pain or lower back pain try resveratrol, it takes a bit of time but heals nerves and bones and cartilage rather than merely quells pain.
It reverses damage.

Its also good for reversing osteoporosis and arthritis. Iknow it sounds almost impossible for it to be so helpful in so many things, but the science is real. It may even help prevent problems caused by the mechanical unloading caused by microgravity in space voyages. (people's bodies decide they no longer need all that strength and their body starts to re-absorb and reuse the nutrients used in their bones and muscles elsewhere. That's how it works.)

The tarantulas found in the US Southwest are not poisonous. Elsewhere, some are.

Paola is very good and the sound in the recording is excellently done.

----
RESV is very good for bones. It can help cure disc problems.;
Its very helpful for the spine.

Its also good for vision, and the trabecular network in the eyes.

It reduces intraocular pressure. (Ocular hypertension) It also inhibits the replication of COVID and all known* (at this time) related SARS-causing, beta-coronaviruses, as far as I know.

It won't make you grow more fur and a huge long fluffy luxuriant tail, though, as far as I know.

Listeing to music from the films of Akira Kurosawa, especially the very effective combination of shakuhachi flute and kettle drums. (such as in Throne of Blood)

@zed2
southwest are venomous, but the venom is "weak" insofar as it seldom has any effect on humans worse than a bee sting. When it does, it is likely from anaphylactic shock. As with many other stinging animals, some people are allergic and hae reactions disproportionate to the normal effect of the venom itself.

thanks for reading
