What is P.E.A?
P.E.A. (or Palmitoylethanolamide) is a compounded treatment option for chronic pain, recommended by pain specialists and clinics throughout Australia.
How does it work?
P.E.A. is a fatty acid molecule naturally found in the body and obtained from protein rich foods such as egg yolk, soyabean and meat. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain reliever) by targeting the nervous system cells that increase pain and turning them off when they are not needed anymore.
Many chronic pain sufferers exhibit low levels of P.E.A. and supplementation is thought to restore the body’s P.E.A. levels and help combat the pain response.
Who would benefit?
Extensive research has shown that P.E.A. performs a wide variety of biological functions related to pain and possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive and neuroprotective properties.
Chronic pain conditions that may be helped with regular P.E.A. use include:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Pain associated with MS
Chemotherapy induced neuropathic pain
P.E.A. is non-addictive and has no known side effects.
It is safe to take with any other medications and has been shown to enhance the effects of other pain-relievers.
P.E.A. can also help reduce reliance on stronger pain medications that may cause unwanted side-effects.
Many of our patients have experienced positive results within 4-6 weeks of treatment.
