11 ways to naturally relieve pain

Over the counter pain medication can have serious side effects. The Dr. prescribed medication can be even worse.

If you are tired of compromising your health just to ease your pain then this list is for you.

  • Turmeric- A highly anti-inflammatory spice that contains curcumin has been used in India and China for thousands of years and has shown to block The cox 2 gene. Blocking the action of the COX-2 gene decreases inflammation and therefore reduces pain. It’s also one of the components that gives Turmeric its anti-cancer properties.
  • Ginger- Is similar to turmeric as a cox 2 inhibitor but ginger has been shown to  reduce other aspects of the inflammation cycle. Studies show that ginger is as effective as NSAIDS and common arthritis medications in reducing pain.
  • Essential oils-These gifts from nature are the very essence of the plant. Because they are so concentrated they are very powerful. You don’t have to use very much to see a benefit. There are many essential oils that can help to reduce pain, Copaiba from the copal tree is highly anti-inflammatory. Ginger essential oil is a great way to incorporate ginger into your diet. Wintergreen oil is one of the best pain remedies for muscles because it contains the same compound found in aspirin. Learn all about essential oils and how to order them wholesale.
  • Meditation- This Study shows how meditation can be a great pain reliever. Often when you focus on the pain and accept the pain as a form of communication from your body the pain actually decreases.
  • Breathing exercises- Breathing into your pain can decrease the amount of pain you are feeling. This can be done in conjunction with meditation and can have a profound affect on your pain. Check out these helpful breathing exercises.
  • Anti-inflammatory diet- Eating foods that are anti-inflammatory is one of the best ways to control pain. Especially chronic pain. Fruits and veggies are the best anti-inflammatory foods. Avoiding very acidic foods such as conventionally raised meat and dairy is a good idea and also limiting grains. Grass fed, pastured meat and raw dairy are less acidic and contain omega 3 fatty acids which reduce inflammation.
  • Arnica-This herb is wonderful for reducing muscle pain and pain from small abrasions. It should never be taken internally except in a homeopathic formula. You can find salves and creams containing arnica at your local health food store.
  • Bromelain- Is found in the pineapple plant and is a protein-digesting enzyme. Bromelain demonstrates powerful effects in alleviating pain, swelling, and inflammation. Taken between meals in supplement form it has been shown to benefit joint pain and also helps with digestion when taken with food.
  • Holy Basil- This herb is grown in many households in India and is highly anti-inflammatory. It contains many of the same compounds as medical cannabis. It’s also an adaptogen and helps your body to modulate stress. Stress can be a big factor in pain.
  • Homeopathy- was a popular form of medicine before allopathy in the U.S and Europe and is still popular in natural medicine. Many naturopaths practice homeopathy as well as some chiropractors. The idea behind homeopathy is “like cures like” when given in very minute amounts. Homeopathy is very effective for pain and you can find some remedies at your local health food store. For chronic pain it’s best to see a qualified homeopathic Dr.
  • CBD oil- Cannabidiol is found in hemp and medical marijuana. The oil is very beneficial in reducing inflammation and pain as well as nausea, stress and seizures among other symptoms and conditions. CBD oil can be purchased legally as it contains no THC, the compound that produces a high in regular marijuana.
