5 Natural Cures That DESTROY Pain
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Living with chronic pain can make life absolutely miserable.
And if you turn to mainstream medicine, they’ll give you two choices – and they’re both terrible.
You can take over-the-counter meds that can destroy your gut, like aspirin or ibuprofen.
Or, once the pain gets bad enough, your doctor may prescribe some opioid pain reliver like OxyContin or fentanyl.
These are the same dangerous drugs that are killing thousands of Americans a year – especially seniors.
Some choice, huh?
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Because I’m going to introduce you to five all-natural remedies that can kill your pain… without killing you in the process.
These are the five most effective pain-relieving cures from the natural world:
- People have been using willow bark for thousands of years for pain relief. Willow bark contains a chemical called salicin, which is a key building block of aspirin. So you get the benefits of aspirin without the side effects. Still, if you are sensitive to aspirin, then you may want to choose another natural pain reliver from this list.
- Turmeric is a spice and a powerful medicine. Turmeric, and its extract curcumin, have so many good uses that you should be taking turmeric or curcumin every day. Not only does turmeric block pain, but it also reduces inflammation, which is one of the main drivers of pain.
- Cloves are one of the best topical anti-pain medications. Cloves are especially helpful for tooth pain in adults and teething in children.
- Epsom salt, which contains magnesium, is great for those sore muscles you get when you overdo your work or exercise. Try an Epsom salt bath next time you hurt your back – it will work wonders.
- Fish oil is something I never get tired of talking about because most of us don’t get enough Omega-3 fatty acids in our bodies. When you do get enough Omega-3s, the result is a lot less inflammation and pain in the body.
These five remedies are all safe and effective – and you can find them at just about any supermarket or vitamin shop.
