Are you in pain? You don’t have to reach for over-the -counter pain killers, or even the heavy pharmaceutical hitters prescribed by your doctor; there are literally hundreds of natural pain killers waiting for you in the abundance of nature.
You can count on plants and herbs to alleviate everything from arthritis pain, to headaches, to burns – read on to find out more.
Many pharmaceutical pain medications, while effective and useful at times, can be downright dangerous, but there is another solution to your pain problem. “Almost always, if we find pharmaceuticals doing the trick, we’ll find a plant doing the same trick—and doing it more safely.”
No matter how well you prescribe medication, chronic sufferers don’t get complete relief. It’s an enormous problem, and the medical community is doing a bad job solving it.”
Before you do anything else though, you have to ‘quit the junk food that riles up the body’s pain system.’ The modern Western diet comprised of highly refined foods, sugars, and refined carbohydrates, while devoid of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, etc., is going to block the ability of other non-pharmaceutical remedies to halt pain.
Turmeric – the golden spice has a mild effect on our body, but works far better than any kind of painkiller. Its active compound curcumin has incredible health benefits, and is very effective in cases of inflammation and pain.
Turmeric will relax your joints and muscles and dull the pain in your body completely naturally and without harming your health. Here’s how to prepare turmeric tea:
– 2 tablespoons of grated turmeric
– 4 cups of water
– Honey, lemon and ginger to taste
Put the water to a pot and let it boil, then add the turmeric and simmer the mix for approximately 20 minutes on low heat. Strain it afterwards, add the other active ingredients, stir well and delight in the healthy cup of turmeric tea.
