Natural Pain Killers
Pain Killers. You know as ibuprofen or aspirin. And while painkillers usually serve their purpose, there is definitely a growing movement to look to natural, hemeopathic remedies first. After all, would you rather put something you cannot pronounce, let alone have any idea what it truly is, into your body? Or would you rather use a natural painkiller that does the job without any of those nasty side affects those various bottles talk about. Aspirin, for example, warns of “bleeding from the stomach or brain”.

What you may, or may not have known is that many pharmaceutical painkillers have their origin from natural plants, herbs, and other substances that have pain killing properties. Why have you not heard of these? Simple. Pharmaceutical companies don’t make money off natural products. They reap their billions selling you their synthesized, patented imitations that have those nasty side affects like anemia, DNA damage, hearing loss, hypertension, heart disease, and of course, death.
But never fear, there are a number of ways to relieve pain without destroying your vital organs and taking your life into your own hands. And in some instances, the natural remedy can actually help your body HEAL from whatever is the cause of the pain.
Here are some examples:
Cannabis: The human body contains cannabinoid receptors that respond to both THC and CBD
White Willow Bark: Natural herb used to produce aspirin
Boswellia: Also known as “Indian Frankincense” is powerful anti-inflammatory.
Capsaicin: Primarily a topical pain reliever
Cat’s Claw: A South American herb also with powerful anti-inflammatory agents
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Reported to help ease chronic pain
Curcumin: Helps block pain signals from reaching the brain.
Essential Oils: Peppermint, Lemongrass, Copaiba, and others may help mitigate pain.
