This is one of my herbal blends used to help the body turn down the pain signal. It can be made into capsules, tincture, or tea, but due to the taste I highly recommend herbal capsules.
1 part St. John's wort
1 part valerian root (or skullcap if you have an aversion to valerian root)
1 part wild lettuce
1/2 part cayenne
Recommended dosage is 2-3 capsules or 20-30 drops tincture every few hours as needed.

- Distraction – work, serving, reading, hobbies, pets, anything to divert the mind from pain.
- Focus on beauty – art, nature, poetry, music, fresh air, garden walk, feeling sensations of plants and inhaling their aroma, barefoot on grass, etc.
