Celery seed - Vioxx® Recall May Provide Opportunity for Natural Alternatives: BioActives Re-Focuses Attention On Its Celery-Seed Fraction (10-12-04) - "Concentrated Celery-Seed Fraction as a natural, alternative therapy for arthritis pain.  BioActives' Concentrated Celery Seed-Fraction is based on a proprietary process that extracts phthalides (butylphthalide, sedanenolide and sedanolide) from celery seeds. Phthalides have been shown in clinical tests to reduce pain, increase mobility, and establish an increased sense of well-being in people experiencing symptoms of pain from rheumatoid arthritis, gout and muscle stiffness. Hospital studies in both Australia & India have found celery seeds effective in combating both the progression & symptoms of pain from these conditions...
The phthalides in celery seeds act to restore the balance in the body "prostaglandin system, 1 of the most important chemical control systems in the body that regulates inflammation, pain, & swelling (as well as blood pressure, heart, digestive, and kidney function). More information about phthalides is available at BioActives' web site and at Doctor Michael Murrary' web site "  Check your grocer for organic celery seeds in the spice section!  Also do not forget that a sprouted seed is superior to an unsprouted seed.

The Miracle of MSM the Natural Solution for Pain + The MSM Miracle: Enhance your Health with Organic Sulfur +
DMSO &/or Emu oil - - - used as a natural base for natural medicinal products -
DMSO @ - "The

story of DMSO began in the 1960s, when Stanley Jacob, MD, head of the organ transplant program at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland,(Oregon) was investigating compounds that might help preserve organs for transplant. DMSO, which had been used as an industrial solvent, attracted his attention because of the way it penetrates skin without damaging it. He experimented with DMSO & found that it could relieve pain. 
The discovery of DMSO inspired the discovery of another related sulfur remedy, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a compound with similar pain-relieving effects. I often recommend it be taken orally instead of NSAIDs for pain associated with headaches, fibromyalgia, heartburn & muscle and sports injuries. MSM also is known to ease allergies & asthma.

From the start, DMSO was highly controversial.  Some were worried that this 'miracle' drug had harmful side effects, although nothing specific was found. By the mid-1960s, DMSO was a popular product in health-food stores. It was inexpensive and worked. The only approval DMSO has received from the FDA is for organ preservation during transplantation & as a local treatment for interstitial cystitis, a painful condition that involves inflammation of the bladder. DMSO is, however, approved for use throughout Canada and Europe as a topical treatment for pain, inflammation, scleroderma (an autoimmune disease of the skin) & arthritis.  It also is widely used by veterinarians to treat animal injuries, especially in horses. If you have never heard of DMSO, I can understand that you may doubt its usefulness, but I know it to be a safe and effective treatment, so do my patients who use it (topically).

Elderberry juice can relieve face spasms (neuralgia). 
However, never take in EXCESS. Know your source.
"The indigenous elder tree of the western United States, Sambucus mexicana, can grow to 30 feet and produces small (1/4-inch), globular, nearly black berries that can be covered with a white bloom at maturity. The berries are juicy and edible when mature. The cooked berries are commonly eaten in pies and jams, & berry juice can be fermented into wine. The fresh leaves, flowers, bark, young buds, & roots contain a bitter alkaloid & also a glucoside that, under certain conditions, can produce hydrocyanic acid. The amount of acid produced is usually greatest in young leaves. There may be other toxic constituents in this plant. The root is probably the most poisonous & may be responsible for occasional pig deaths; cattle & sheep have died after eating leaves & young shoots." Organic is best.,_canadensis).htm

"MSM has been proven effective in the relief of joint pain because it provides sulfur. Sulfur is one of the essential building blocks for joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails. MSM can be synthesized to form a dietary supplement, and when it is compounded correctly, it is almost identical to the naturally occurring form & provides the same benefits."

Based on the aforementioned purity & the relative molecular weights of glucosamine and each of its salts, simple math shows that GLUCOSAMINE-ES delivers 83.1% active glucosamine while the sulfate supplies only 62.8%.")
MSM (DMSO2) & DMSO - - Portland, Oregon, USA - "Stanley W. Jacob, M.D., F.A.C.S. pioneered the medicinal uses of DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) & its major metabolite, MSM (dimethyl sulfone)."
MSM - A bladder catheterization (or perhaps an enema infusion) by a urologist can be used especially for pain - "Dr. (Sanley W) Jacob describes it (DMSO) as 'the most potent free radical scavenger known to man...Some molecules produce an unequal number of electrons. The instability of the number causes them to destroy cells. DMSO hooks on to those molecules & then leaves the body holding onto them.' In simpler terms, installed DMSO takes the bad guys out of the bladder when a patient excretes urine...He founded the use of DMSO for a wide range of uses, including the treatment of interstitial cystitis (IC). Dr. Jacob has also been swallowing a DMSO teaspoon of DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) (powder) every day for the past 32 years, & hasn't had a cold or flu during that time."

Nightshade family of plants. "Vegetables like potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplant may actually make pain from inflammation worse. These vegetables are part of the nightshade family of plants & contain a chemical alkaloid called solanine. Solanine can trigger pain in some people. While there isn't any formal research findings that back the claim about nightshade plants, you can avoid them for a few weeks to see if your pain and symptoms of inflammation improve." @

Serrapeptase (Serrato Peptidase) is a silkworm proteolytic enzyme that chops up or digests protein & acts as a pain blocker & an anti-inflammatory Life Extension magazine 9/2003  1-800-544-444
Serrapeptase is an enzyme that is produced in the intestines of silk worms to break down cocoon walls. This enzyme is proving to be a superior alternative to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) traditionally used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Its uses have also been extended to the treatment of chronic sinusitis and postoperative inflammation, & some researchers believe the substance can play an important role in arterial plaque prevention and removal...
Besides reducing inflammation, one of serrapeptase's most profound benefits is reduction of pain,
due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues...
NSAIDs, which include aspirin, ibuprofen, salicylates, and naproxen, are among the most commonly prescribed medications for inflammation resulting from rheumatoid arthritis, joint conditions, osteoarthritis, gouty arthritis, joint and muscle discomfort associated with systemic lupus erythematosus, & other musculoskeletal disorders...
NSAIDs lethal effects result from the inhibition of the biosynthesis of prostaglandins. NSAIDs block cyclo-oxygenase, the enzyme responsible for catalyzing the reactions of arachidonic acid to endoperoxide compounds. This process results in the inhibition of gastric prostaglandin E, a hormone which protects the lining of the stomach from acid. After prolonged and frequent ingestion of NSAIDs, the stomach remains defenseless & at increased susceptibility to ulcers.(3-4) If an ulcer erodes into a blood vessel, bleeding results. An ulcer can destroy part of the stomach and duodenal walls,
leaving a gap that requires immediate surgery...
Drugs many patients take to relieve their arthritic pains actually contributes to further destruction of their joints...
NSAIDs have been shown to interfere with patients' sleep patterns...
Even insulin secretion is affected by NSAIDs...
NSAID-induced side effects include kidney damage, blood dyscrasias and cardiovascular effects, complication of antihypertensive therapies involving diuretics or beta-adrenoceptor blockade, and adverse effects in patients with heart failure and cirrhosis.(10) In one instance, a woman treated for rheumatoid arthritis with the NSAID sulindac developed gallstones composed of sulindac metabolites...
NSAIDs have also induced adverse psychiatric reactions. 5 psychiatric outpatients -
2 with major depressive disorders, 1 with a bipolar disorder, 1 with a schizophrenic disorder and 1 with an anxiety disorder - were treated with NSAIDs due to rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or other painful neuromuscular conditions. All 5 patients developed moderate to severe depression. 3 patients became paranoid, and 4 either attempted or considered suicide. These psychiatric symptoms disappeared once the patients stopped taking NSAIDs. When the patients re-started the drugs, the symptoms returned.

Sesame Seed Oil - Reduces Chronic Pain - - 9/29/2019 - Sesame oil is often applied topically to reduce pain, which may be due to its anti-inflammatory, analgesic & antioxidant properties.
One study published in Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine 
found that applying the oil topically was able to reduce pain severity & decrease the need for pain medications in people with trauma to the lower or upper extremities.
Another study out of Iran had similar findings, 
noting that performing a sesame oil massage could be beneficial for providing pain relief, with  a lower cost and less risk of adverse side effects than other treatments.  (Assume this is especially true for ORGANIC RAW oil, perhaps hard to find & has unique texture & smell, so user may want to apply PM rather than AM with relegated pajamas.)

Neck Pain
(pain in the neck)

Cook, Elaine -
_part_1-16_elaine_cook_bible_study.pdf - Part #9
I read of a woman who had been in constant neck pain for 22 years as a result of a car accident. Finally, a friend asked her if she had ever prayed for the person responsible for the accident. She said, “No.” Her friend suggested she should do so.” I forgive him,” she prayed. Her friend prompted, “Now bless him.” When the woman began to bless this man, the pain left. The following day she found she could move her neck for the 1st time in 22 years. This experience proved that forgiveness is not total forgiveness until we bless our enemies & pray for them to be blessed.
Totally forgiving them has been achieved when we set God free to bless them.
By doing this, we are the 1st to be blessed; those who totally forgive are blessed the most.


Baker, Heidi - The Hungry Always Get Fed - - Chapter 8 Christmas in Revival  12/3/2005  "The Lord spoke to me that there were 10 women in the meeting who had severe back pain because of issues of unforgiveness.  As soon as they came forward & repented, Jesus healed all 10."

Bonnke, Reinhard - autobiography book preview -
Chapter 2 shares Bonnke’s spiritual heritage beginning with the healing of his grandfather's pain.

Chavda, Mahesh - "When our son Ben was just a few months old, he was dying of kidney failure. His doctors had given him up for dead.  He was in extreme pain from the many surgeries and procedures that had been done to try to keep him alive. In the natural, neither Ben's doctors nor Bonnie. I could do anything more to help him, but we did not simply sit idly by. We took every Scripture about healing and confessed over him the promises of God: 'I Am the Lord that healeth thee; God sent His word & healed them; By His stripes we were healed.'
These Scriptures are our inheritance and our possession as believers." 4/7/2008 -

Cresswell, Aliss - + " (edited) We speak TO pain &/or TO demons. 8/27/2018
ALISS: I was sharing the teaching on healing.  At the end of it, this lady 30 years old, said 10 years previously she broke her back . She'd actually had surgery in her back.  Her spine had vertebrae all fused together with metal pins & rods. She couldn't bend to pick up her son, even.  She was in constant pain, on liquid morphine, to try & ease the pain for 10 years, but she was still in pain...I always like other people doing the miracles so they know it's not me, it's Jesus. I said, "You're going to do the miracle." She puts her hand on the woman with a broken back. She starts feeling Holy Spirit power of God coming down her arm into this woman's back. I got my phone out again. It's on YouTube. She's jumping up & down, screaming with joy, not pain, 'cause the pain leaves her & she gets completely healed. The woman that prayed says, "Wow, that has so boosted me."  
ALISS:  A woman had come into our shop...At this point, she knew Jesus because she just asked Him into her life...I was saying to her, "Just tell that thing to go." As she's telling the demons to leave, she can feel them. She starts making a noise as they're coming out. Then she starts feeling all this pain in her neck. I said to her, "Well, just tell that demon to go, but don't cause any pain." It's important you just speak TO those demons because they've got to do as told." I said, "You just tell that thing, 'Don't cause any pain, just come out.'" She did that.  The demon came out.  The pain stopped.
ALISS:  I don't really get sick very often, but sometimes things will come out of all of us & we've got to contend for them, not come into agreement. I believe like with an evil spirit, it can only have any power in your life if you come into agreement with it. You've got to break that agreement straight away.
One time I found a lump in my breast...If you find any-thing like that, you just got to tell it to go in the name of Jesus...
I said I don't come into agreement with it.  I thought, "I'm not going to get it checked out or anything." You got to be careful, be led by the Holy Spirit...tell that lump to leave in the name of Jesus." I had to speak to it a few times,
but 1 time, I put my finger on it  it just disappeared completely, because of the power of Jesus.
Dvorak - - 8/26/2018 – (edited) - “I teach you from The Healing Creed where it says, ‘He carried our sorrows’, this word sorrows in Hebrew is mak’ob and means ‘physical and mental pain @ Strong’s Reference H4341. Our Lord carried our physical and mental pain and bled from a horrific whipping so that we could be free from it while living on this earth. We do NOT have to wait until heaven to be free from pain.  That belief is a works mentality, a wrong doctrine. The truth is: There is no pain and suffering allowed into heaven. We do not carry our earthly baggage with us. When Jesus was whipped at the whipping post it was to heal us from all physical and emotional pain, sickness and disease while on this earth. That’s why it says,
‘By His stripes we are healed’,
So strengthen your faith, learn (Make it a habit.) to believe for the manifestation of your physical healing.  Discover what a blessing it is to live life pain free in Jesus’ name, amen.”

JANET: Well I picked up the book called When Heaven Invades Earth and that just sparked something in me…We would pray, but I had never heard of miracles happening. When I read about that, I said I want to go see this thing. So we went to a conference. Bill Johnson was speaking.  He had a word of knowledge and said, "There are people here tonight who had been in an accident in previous years who were now having chronic pain...God wants to heal you tonight." My eyes got big. I stood up real fast.  I raised my hand.  He said, "Okay, people behind these people with their hands raised, just put your hand and them and pray a simple prayer. I pray you be healed in the name of Jesus." When that happened, I felt this power hit and actually knock me back into a chair.  My leg started tingling. I continued to feel this tingling all night long.
It would wake me up, wake me up, tingle, tingle, tingle.  In the morning when I woke up I had no swelling, no pain and even the nerves had been reconnected.

Wadlinger, Joe - 7/29/2019 @ (edited)
DR. JOE: In the name of Jesus, we command that pain to go. I said, "Well, try it out now." He raised his arm to the side about 90 degrees and he goes, "That's so much better." I said, "Is that all you can do?" He said, "Yeah." I said, "Well, we're not going to leave it that way. We're going to do that again." So, we prayed the exact same prayer again. We said, "Well, try it again." He went like this.  All of a sudden his arm went to the sky and his eyes got as big as saucers. He said, "What did you do?" He kept lifting his arm up & down, up & down & just rejoicing in the Lord.
SID: In 2004 something changed your life that led you to be who you are today.
DR. JOE: I was (computer) programming...slouched down in my executive chair. I warped my back. 
It caused me incredible back pain. Since that time I had 2 different surgeries & an injection in my back. Because of that injection in my back, I had pain that was absolutely incredible. The lower part of my body was constantly in pain.
1 lady who had the same disease that I had called arachnoiditis said it was like sliding down a razor blade in iodine. That's how painful it was.
SID: If a level of 1 to 10, 10 being the worst pain, what number were you at?
DR. JOE: 15-20. I was in bed all day long. I would take a pillow when it would get so bad, put it over my face and just scream. You could hear me from the other side of the house. I had to stand to eat. I could sit only for a short period of time. I spent most of my time on a massage table on my stomach.  My wife had to massage my muscles because they were starting to atrophy, because I had been in bed for so long. (Doctors) gave me every medication you can imagine. Medications for cancer, for neural problems. They had given me the highest cancer drug that you [can] have and nothing worked. They even put a stimulator in my back to try to reduce the pain. They finally had to take it out. I had 3 operations that didn't work (for my pain).
SID: You're a medical doctor. How in the world could you contemplate suicide?
DR. JOE: When I was younger I couldn't imagine people wanting to commit suicide. But when the pain gets so bad that that's all you do (want). I couldn't even put a 3 word sentence together it was so bad...I thought God had abandoned me. I thought he didn't love me anymore. So, the only thing that kept me from doing it was thinking that my wife and my kids  would wake up and see me dead in bed. I couldn't do that to them.
SID: Dr. Joe, as you just heard lost all hope. But his wife Heidi said, "If I have to throw you over my shoulder & carry you across the finish line, we're going to see you healed."
DR. JOE: (Joan Hunter responded to an e- mail & phoned Joe.  She prayed) & prayed again. I didn't feel any different. She said, "Hmm, I'm going to have to go back to the Lord on this one." She says, "But I want you to go to a church that really believes in the miracle working power of God, that really believes in healing & knows how to pray." So, she sent me to a church...That was really the start of our journey of people who really knew how to pray like Jesus prayed, like the disciples prayed. That's where we started. From that point on, it took a year of us commanding that sickness and disease.
At 1st I just had faith in Heidi's and other people's faith. My faith started to grow as I realized that I was getting better.
I would get to a plateau and the (spiritual) enemy would come. He would say, "That's all you're going to get." I'd say, "No, enemy. That's not what I'm going to get. My God is not a 10% or 20%, but a 100% God."
I would talk to my legs. I would say, "In the name of Jesus, all pain you have to go.
All inflammation you have to go back. You have to be aligned with the word of God."
Then I would go to another plateau. This would happen over & over & over again until I was completely healed.
DR. JOE: Well, we studied about Jesus, the disciples, the deacons in the Bible. Those 4 things that Jesus told us to do - heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out devils & cleanse lepers and tell people the kingdom of heaven is here. Jesus told us to command. He commanded sickness & disease to go. He cast out devils, as he commanded them. Jesus didn't have to use his own name of course. The disciples did and the deacons did.
SID: We have the power of attorney of that authority.
DR. JOE: Exactly. I think the big misconception that I had was that I wasn't capable of healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out devils and cleansing lepers in Jesus name. That somehow we have 2nd class citizens in the kingdom. That's what the leadership are supposed to do. The Bible doesn't say that. It says the leadership are to equip us to do that work of ministry. That changed my life, because now it was my responsibility to go out there under the power & authority that Jesus gave us to do good and destroy works of the devil.
DR. JOE: (After 99% of pain left Joe had wee bit remaining.) I wasn't going to settle for 99.99% healing.
So, the Lord just had me ask that doctor who was also a believer. He said, "Ask him to undo that curse that he put on you." So, he called me one day. I said, "Doctor, you said that that pain would never go. I'm asking you to even if you would just say it's possible for it to go." He said, "Yes, it's possible for it to go." That (remaining/residue) pain went. It was gone.
SID: Are you saying to me that you had a word curse spoken over you & that word curse had to be reversed in order for you to manifest your healing? Is that what I'm hearing you say?

"You are NOT to believe that you are healed - because the pain is gone.  You shouldn't refuse to believe that you are healed, because you still feel the pain...Faith is believing that you are healed - because God says...(in Scripture that His Son Jesus took upon Himself our physical & mental ailments). A person who walks by faith ignores the testimony (feelings) of his senses, unless it agrees with the Word of God"

Collins, Hakeem - Candice Smithyman founder of Dream Mentors International, 8/21/2018 -
Prophet: The Lord Told Me, 'You Can Command Your Healing' -
Hakeem Collins was lying in bed one night, suffering from 2 fractures in his jaw. While wrestling with his excruciating pain, Collins says God told him clearly, 'You can command your healing.'
In obedience to that word, Collins laid hands on his jaw and began to speak to his broken bone... As he commanded his jaw to be healed, his ear popped and felt the bone in his jaw begin to realign.  That revelation from the Holy Spirit revolutionized Collins' perspective on prophetic healing.  'Some things the Holy Spirit may have you do may look foolish,' Collins says. 'But you have to trust and believe the Holy Spirit...Our pain or our disease or our sickness has ears.'  Collins expands on his revelation in his book:" chapter #1

Hartz, Mary Steward - 9/2018 @ - "Holy Spirit instructed me, 'Treat each of these (physical) pains as a word of knowledge.  Stop agreeing with these pains as though they were your own.  Pray for others for the specific pain you are experiencing'...Words of knowledge  come in many forms: a symptom of physical pain in one's own body, a vision, a slight impression (inner check/alert/idea), an inspired thought, and many other ways.  Utilize thew words of knowledge to target healing in that specific pain of disease in somebody (else).  The symptoms usually leave my body quickly.  The (spiritual) enemy has stopped coming against me with so many odd pains.  I have stopped agreeing with symptoms."

Dr Richard Casdorph, a Spirit-filled physician, later asked me if I understood what had happened during the esophagus attack...He said I had engaged in spiritual warfare.  Satan had tried to put the illness back on me, he explained.  He added that God would not always protect me as He had done that night, that I would have to learn for myself how to combat the evil one, using all the spiritual provisions God had made for me...
I learned to take authority over pain, in the name of Jesus & when I prayed IT always went away."

Henderson, Robert - Receiving Healing from the Courts of Heaven: Removing Hindrances That Delay or Deny Your Healing - (excerpt) -  (edited) A minister friend of mine named Ray Austin, a Methodist pastor, was beset by tumors & bleeding in his pituitary gland. It came out of the blue with intense pain & trauma. The pain in his head was so intense that he could only sleep for 10 minutes at a time. The pain would then wake him up. This went on for an extended period of time. The doctors told him at 1st that this was the pain of a stage 4 cancer victim even though the tumor was benign. They later adjusted their statement & told him this was the worst pain known to man. There was much prayer that was activated for him, yet the situation only worsened & there was no healing. Nothing the doctors did brought any relief. They had no ability even to manage the pain.  In the midst of this situation, I felt led to call Ray & pray with him over the phone. As I did, I experienced a tremendous burden of intercession. I began to lead Ray into the Courts of Heaven. We dealt with any sin, transgression, & iniquity that the devil could be using to bring this suffering on him. By the way, if none of these are present, giving the devil legal rights, then we can just appeal to God as Father or even Friend. God’s merciful and gracious heart will move on our behalf. But if there is legal ground from which the devil is working, we must get it revoked and removed. In Ray’s case, we especially zeroed in on anything in his ancestry where a covenant was made with any demonic power. Ray is of African descent. As a result of this, we dealt with any covenant or agreement made with demonic gods by those in his history. We asked for the blood of the Lamb to annul these covenants. We requested that any place Ray’s name or his family’s name was on an altar, that it be removed. As a good friend from Nigeria told me, “Every African understands altars.” In African history, cities are dedicated to demonic entities. There is at least an altar in the spirit realm, if not the natural, that exists. On these altars are the names of the people in these cities that were dedicated to demonic gods. The result is that the gods claim these people & their bloodlines for themselves. They assert that this gives them the right to bring curses, sickness, tragedies, & troubles to them. This is why bad things can happen to good people. In the realm of healing, this is why people many times don’t get permanently healed & well when prayed for. We sought to remove & revoke any & every legal right of the devil to torment Ray with this sickness & disease. Ray experienced a measure of relief as we dealt with these legal issues before God’s court.  Later that night, the pain woke Ray up again. It probably had been around 12 hours since we prayed. As Ray got up in intense pain, he simply began to pray again & ask God to heal him. This time Ray laid down on the couch in his living room. The next thing he knew he heard his neighbors leaving for work. Ray realized that he had been asleep for several hours, which he had not done in several weeks. Then he realized he had no pain. He checked things out for just a little while & then went into the bedroom where Jodie, his wife, was sleeping. He woke her up & announced, “God has healed me.” He then explained what had happened. As the reality of what had been done began to impact them, they started crying, laughing, & rejoicing at the goodness of God, which had manifested itself to them in an amazing way.  Here’s the question: Why did Ray’s prayer in those early morning hours bring a result that all the other times had not? Did God suddenly decide He loved Ray? Did Ray & everyone else finally pray enough so that God was convinced & healed him? Or did something legal that the devil was using against Ray get revoked & removed so the heart of God toward him could be manifested? This is what I believe, & so does Ray. AFTER we 1st dealt with any possible covenantal right of the devil against Ray, God was free to heal him. Up until this time, the devil, before the Courts of Heaven, was demanding his rights to afflict Ray with this condition. Once the blood of Jesus removed these things, God’s passion toward Ray could manifest. It wasn’t enough to appeal to the Fatherhood of God or even the Friendship of Jesus. We needed to go before God as Judge & deal with the legal issue stopping the healing. Getting things legally in place in the spirit allowed God to answer Ray’s prayer. I mentioned, the devil can use sin, transgression, & iniquity as legal rights against our health and us. David spoke of these 3 words in Psalms chapter 32, verses 1 through 3:Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, & in whose spirit there is no deceit. When I kept silent, my bones grew old through my groaning all the day long.  Notice that David attributed his “bones growing old,” a reference to sickness & disease, to his (ignorance, ignorance or) refusal to deal with sin, transgression, & iniquity. Once David repented & (received) experienced forgiveness, his body was restored. God was not afflicting David with sickness because of his sin. The devil was using this as a legal right to bring sickness against him. James chapter 1, verses 13 & 17, tell us the nature & heart of God. Verse 13 says:Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God can NOT be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. God does not use evil. It is against His very nature & person to do such a thing. Sickness is NOT of God. Again, sickness is the tool & oppression of the devil. James continues in verse 17 by declaring: Every good & perfect gift is from above, & comes down from the Father of lights, with Whom there is no variation or shadow of turning...Searching out the legal issue that the devil is using to hold someone in a place of affliction can be essential to that person being healed. This is what I now understand the Lord meant when He said to my wife, “You must pray for them correctly or they will die (prematurely).” (Read other book excerpts @ )

Conner, Bobby - Spiritual Pain - visitation to Christ's crucifixion - - "Later, I heard the most horrible cry come form the parched, swollen, bleeding lips of our Lord...This cry still rings in my ears to this very hour: 'My God! My God! Why have You forsaken Me?' (Matthew 27:46). This question came from the very soul of the Son of God. For the very 1st time in all of eternity, the Son & the Father are separated. This is the very 1st time Christ has ever referred to God other than Father. Why? Because now Christ has become what we are, He has taken upon Himself our sins. The Scripture states that God is of a purer eye than to look upon sin, so Father God turns His back to His Son, & Christ is forsaken of His Father. This is the pain that He had asked to be removed in the garden when He prayed 'Let this cup pass from Me' (Matthew 26:39). He could not bear to think of Himself being abandoned by His Father. At this moment Christ is not dying as a Son, but rather as a sinner. As this happened, His heart was crushed. As the Psalmist prophesied: 'My heart is like wax, it has melted within Me' (Psalm 22:14)."

Spiritual Pain

Ferrell, Ana - Seated in Heavenly Places - - Chapter 4 - Christ a Kingdom of Love section Within the Depths of God's Heart - "When one that He (has created and) loves, chooses eternal separation from Him, this is the greatest pain the in heart of God: the deep hollow of emptiness & rending, of knowing that He will never again be with those that choose by their works, hell.  Love cannot stop loving.  Eternally, He will continue loving and mourning them."  This is the "pain of separation."

Vicarious  Pain

Banks, Bill  Deliverance for Children & Teens  Another spiritual insight.  Often called "sympathy/empathy pain" vicarious pain can be as simple as a husband feeling his pregnant wife's contractions.  However there is a demon/spirit of vicarious pain. If typical solutions do not eliminate this pain then ask, "When did this terrible pain first begin?"  The answer, in all likelihood, will reveal the source/trigger/root. An 8 year old was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis after his sister lost her left leg.  "We prayed for his healing and bound the spirit of vicarious pain. The pain immediately left him, &" never returned.  [Also be aware that God's Holy Spirit uses pain in the same way during healing services to reveal that someone (else) is being healed.  For instance, someone in the ministry team may have a toothache, which may be indicative of someone in the congregation being healed of a tooth problem.]

Over the Counter Drugs

Acetaminophen -
DANGER – OTC over the counter pills
READ the labels.
Acetaminophen is included in Tylenol and Coricidin, etc.
Edward Covington, MD, took a different view: "Basically we have limited [hydrocodone] abuse, as was said yesterday, by combining it with a poison [acetaminophen] so that you can't abuse it as easily as you can abuse OxyContin," Covington said. "The whole idea of protecting the public by mixing a poison with your medicine I find troubling. In essence that's what we've done." One can find and utilize the specific named ingredients named in the named pain cream, eg: "Arnica Montana - For injuries & bruising to the muscles and joints. Arnica is considered especially useful for arthritis, joint injuries, & bruising."


Acetaminophen - READ PAIN or ANY MEDICATION INSERTS - According to Dr Anne Larson, “Among 275 painkiller-related (over dosage/negative side effect) cases, 48% were unintentional, 44% were attempted suicide, with the rest being unknown. Over a 1/4 of the cases resulted in death. The investigators found as little as 10g, the equivalent of 20 pills, could cause liver failure. Since 1998 in the UK, pharmacies have been advised not to sell more than 1 pack of 32 paracetamol tablets to any individual.”

Darvon - A USA "Food and Drug Administration panel has recommended that propoxyphene (Darvon) be" removed from the market as it offers only slight pain relief while presenting an overdose risk.  Better choices might be prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), (anti-inflammatory  foods, herbs or supplements such as ginger and boswella), or new painkiller tramadol (Ultram). 4/1/2009
NSAIDs - - "Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs including ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil), aspirin, & naproxen (Aleve)...are responsible for at least 100,000 hospitalizations and 17,000 deaths per year in the USA...More than 50% of liver failure events caused by drug overdose. 20 % of liver transplant surgeries are caused by acetaminophen (About 8,000 liver transplants occur every year in the U.S.)...NSAIDs (not including aspirin) are also linked with an increased risk for cardiovascular problems including stroke, heart failure, & electrolyte imbalances.  Even the Food & Drug Administration...warns about NSAIDs potential role in contributing to cardiovascular disease (CVD)." [However, AVOID Acupuncture &/or (occult far eastern religious) meditation, referenced in editorial.] (Be reminded that supplements such as milk thistle help cleanse the liver from toxins.)
