Managing pain doesn’t have to be a struggle and it doesn’t have to include man-
made and potentially addictive medicines. Oftentimes, when it comes to healing our
pains and ailments, we just have to turn to the earth. Here are some natural herbs
that are used to treat pain naturally.
Boswellia is a gum resin extracted from a tree. It contains boswellic acids that have
anti-inflammatory effects on users due to enzymes called 5-Lipooxygenase.
Boswellia has been proven to suppress pain and improve mobility in under a week.
This herb contains curcuminoids, an anti-inflammatory ingredient. It is also a great
pain reliever often given to people after a surgical operation. Curcumin needs to be
paired with either piperine, phosphatidyylcholine or curcumin nanoparticles for it
to be absorbed properly.
White willow bark is anti-inflammatory and also contains analgesic properties. It
reduces many different kinds of pains including arthritis, muscle pain, and back
pain. Always consult your naturopath before using White Willow as it is highly toxic
when used incorrectly.
Devi’s claw is a tuber vegetable that contains harpogosides. This ingredient is
anti-inflammatory and has been proven to relieve lower back pain and arthritis.
Jamacian Dogwood stem has antispasmodic, sedating, and nervine properties used
to treat the most painful of conditions (neuralgia, migraines, etc). It is also useful in
treating ovarian and uterine pain. High doses of this are highly toxic and must be
taken with care.
