To name a few – here are a couple herbal remedies used for natural pain relief:
- Ginger – Throughout multiple studies says Dr.Kiefer, ginger extract may help with joint and muscle pain for many reasons. One of them being that ginger contains important phytochemicals which can help stop inflammation. There are very few side effects that have been linked to ginger when they are taken in small doses. If you’re looking for ways to incorporate ginger into your daily life, consider juicing ginger into a green healthy juice for faster absorption.
- Turmeric – this spice has been known for years to relieve immediate arthritis pain and and has been known to reduce inflammation. It’s unclear how tumeric works against pain or inflammation but it may be due to the curcumin which has been known to contain anti-inflammatory properties. Those with gallbladder disease should avoid using turmeric for natural supplementation.
- Valerian Root – can help stop muscle spasms and immediate muscle cramps. Also, keep in mind that the government doesn’t regulate herbal products for quality so the best course of action is to talk to a health-care professional before testing out a herbal remedy for relieving lower or mid back pain.
I hope you found these natural herbal remedies helpful – I didn’t include an links to ginger, turmeric, or valerian root because they can be easily found at a local whole foods store for an affordable price.
