The pain specialists at The Healthy Back Institute discussed the pain fighting characteristics of certain types of herbs. And more specifically, their anti-inflammatory powers. That’s good news since herbs are readily available, they’re natural, and can provide a nice way to spice up your food. Bottom line, specific types of herbs are potent pain relievers. These natural wonders are …
Ginger is a very versatile herb which can be used in various foods, ranging from stir fry vegetables, meats and even desserts and drinks. Its anti-inflammatory powers have been known for many years, and has also been confirmed by scientific research. When you have a sore throat, try drinking lemon-ginger tea … it is very soothing!
Turmeric, another one of those versatile herbs, gives curry that yellow-mustard appearance. Hmmm … curry! And, moreover, it is an excellent anti-inflammatory.
Rosemary relaxes muscle and nerve tension, and thus, it is an excellent pain reliever. It contains a natural form of glycoside called salicin, which forms the basis of aspirin. So, you can think of rosemary as a natural form of aspirin.
Fenugreek is another herb with anti-inflammatory powers. Not only do they help with pain relief, but these herbs are a nice complement to your salads and seasonings, and even known to help lower high triglyceride levels in your blood.
Chamomile, according to scientific research, has major anti-inflammatory powers. It also has a calming effect, which is ideal for stressful situations so that you can loosen up and relax.
So rather than pump yourself with a bunch of OTC or prescription pain killers, why not include these herbs into your daily diet and seek natural pain relief?
