For anyone who has ever experienced chronic pain – especially in the joints – you know the value of an effective pain remedy. The following list of all-natural pain-relievers includes several herbs which offer immediate results as well as a full collection of more permanent (albeit slower-acting) solutions for healing your joints and easing away pain.
1. Turmeric & GingerTurmeric contains the organic compound Curcumin – a powerful anti-inflammatory. Ginger is known to possesses numerous therapeutic properties including the ability to inhibit the body’s inflammatory immune response. (whfoods.com)
Combine these two incredible healing herbs and brew them into a tea. Simply grind about half a teaspoon each of fresh ginger and turmeric root, add to 2 cups of boiling water, reduce heat simmer for about 10 – 15 minutes. Once your tea has reached the desired strength, strain out the herbs, sweeten with honey or Stevia and enjoy. This recipe makes enough for two servings of tea – the recommended daily intake.
2. Epsom SaltMagnesium is an essential mineral which helps the human body to perform a long list of important functions including the regeneration and healing of joint tissues and bones. While magnesium deficiencies are somewhat uncommon, it is almost impossible to get too much of it. (overdosesymptoms.com) While you could take Magnesium supplements to help heal your painful joints, there is a much better and more relaxing way to up your body’s magnesium levels. Try taking an Epsom Salt bath. Magnesium absorbs much faster through the skin than it does in the gut. At the same time, the warm water should offer temporary relief from aches and pains as your joints and muscles warm up and become more flexible.
You can find Epsom Salts in most grocery and health food stores or order it online. We recommend this White Mountain Epsom Salt, available through Amazon.com.
