Natural Pain Relief

The best Pain Relievers

We all have experienced pains and aches in our bodies. We directly rush to the nearest pharmacies and purchase oral over-the-counter drugs to counteract the pain immediately. However, there are certain pain relievers that can be found at the comforts of your home, specifically in your kitchen.

Using these herbs and spices may help strengthen the immune system and treat diseases with a lesser risk for adverse reactions that can be caused by over-the-counter drugs.

Here are some of the best pain relievers found at home.

Ginger

Ginger contains anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve nausea, arthritis, headaches, and menstrual cramps. By inhibiting inflammatory pathways, ginger does its magic and relieves the pain you’re feeling. Ginger is also good in treating muscle soreness.

Turmeric

This popular spice can help provide natural pain relief to multiple ailments. Turmeric contains curcumin which is responsible for its effectivity in providing pain relief. It naturally shuts down Cox-2 enzymes which are involved in inflammatory methods.

Turmeric has been proven to work just as well as Ibuprofen. This makes turmeric a great relief for sprains, bruises, and joint inflammation.

Red Chili Peppers (Capsaicin)

Red Chili peppers contain capsaicin which contains medicinal properties that provide relief from arthritis, migraines, and diabetic neuropathy. It binds to a protein on neurons that cause the body to feel hat and pain. This process activates the neurons and causes them to release the substance P (a neurotransmitter partly responsible for the pain sensation).

When the neurons are exposed to capsaicin in a certain amount of time, the substance P levels are then depleted which makes them less able to transmit pain signals.

Pineapple Juice (Bromelain)

Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory enzyme found in pineapple stems and juice. It is great in reducing swelling of the nose and sinuses. Bromelain is also good in relieving pain post-surgery or injury. In addition, it relieves pain caused by osteoarthritis and muscle soreness as well.

Heat and Ice

Applying ice and heat directly to the pain-inflicted area is one of the most common home remedies. A strained muscle or ligament may feel better once ice pack is applied. This method reduces swelling and inflammation. Once inflammation has disappeared, applying heat can reduce the stiffness that comes with sprains.

For headaches, it’s best to apply a cold pack briefly on the head. This releases the tension and relieves the pain. For arthritis, moist heat can help more compared to the application of ice.

Lime and Lotus Organics introduces and herbal muscle gel that is purely organic and can relieve pain. It is free from paraben preservatives and artificial colors and fragrances of any kind. It is alcohol-free and unlike other topical gels and agents, this is non-greasy and non-staining.
