Not Drugs, Just Herbs: Here are 3 Natural Pain Killers You Probably Didn’t know about

Posted on

 

if you want to get rid of recurring discomfort, and daily aches and pains, in your fingers, hands, wrist, shoulders, elbows, knees, hips, ankles or back once and for all, then you should know about a new and 100% natural discovery. When it comes to pain relief, you may be surprised by what might help you feel better.

Add cloves to your diet

Cloves contain an anti-inflammatory chemical called eugenol that interferes with a bodily process that triggers arthritis. In one animal study, eugenol prevented the release of COX-2, a protein that spurs inflammation (the same protein that COX-2 inhibitor drugs like Celebrex target). Cloves also contain antioxidants, which are important in slowing the cartilage and bone damage caused by arthritis. Aim for half to 1 teaspoon a day for joint pain relief.

Willow bark

People have been using willow bark to ease inflammation, the cause of most aches and pains, for centuries. The bark of the white willow contains the chemical salicin, which is similar to the main ingredient in aspirin (Bayer). The bark can be chewed, or taken in tea form.

Apply a chamomile tea Poultice

Chamomile tea is an anti-inflammatory that may help with joint-pain relief. Brew a strong infusion using four chamomile tea bags in a cup or so of hot water. Steep, covered, for 20 minutes, then squeeze and remove tea bags. Soak a clean cloth in the cooling liquid and apply to achy joints.

Tumeric

Turmeric is a root that’s part of the ginger family. It curbs inflammation, says Eva Selhub, MD, a clinical associate at Massachusetts General Hospital and author of Your Health Destiny. You can cook with this dark yellow spice or make tea with it. Or take it in capsule form.
