Pain and Substance P (SP)
Ever since its discovery in 1931, researchers have been trying to determine how to stop pain by blocking its release. So they use powerful drugs to dampen the communication along the neuro-pathways. It's shutting down the SP pathway, so to speak. The thing is, as we do that, our body gets smarter and produces more SP. When the drug wears off and the pathways are reopened, there's even more SP rushing to your brain to tell you how bad it hurts. This is why, over time, you have to take more and more pain killers to get the same results. In other words you build up a tolerance.

Substance P

SP is a neurotransmitter. It's the substance in your body that travels quickly from the site of an injury to your brain and shouts,"That HURTS!"A small scratch will release a small amount; you stub your toe, a greater amount and broken arms even a larger amount.

Robert Dickens's insight:

Elevated Substance P (SP) levels lower you pain tolerance and cause you to perceive more pain then you're actually experiencing.

Capsicum (Capsaicin) is the only known topical application that can lower SP levels buy it can burn.

 Our form of capsaicin is gentle and non-burning.

Robert Dickens's insight:

Products loaded with high concentrations of menthol mask pain and raise levels of Substance P. Menthol is considered a counter irritant. Menthol tricks the brain into masking pain by irritating the skin. https://painisgone.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/the-icy-hot-distraction/ ;
