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 Serrata 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.
