Natural Remedies for Pain
The natural remedies our ancestors used for their pain have been
almost forgotten!

Here are the natural remedies for pain...

#1: Boswellia.
Boswellia is a resin with anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, and
analgesic properties.
Boswellia Serrata Extract is an immune
boosting dietary supplement that's also excellent for relieving
join, knee and hip discomfort and migraine headaches. Known as
"Indian frankincense," boswellia has anti-inflammatory properties.
Regular use may help to reduce pains related to inflammation like
joint pain, muscle pain and nerve pain. The active ingredient of
frankincense relieves arthritis by inhibiting the inflammation that
breaks down cartilage tissue and causes arthritis pain. According
to Dr. Andrew Weil, Frankincense has "
anti-inflammatory action
similar to that of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)."

If you've ever studied the bible or paid attention at Christmas,
you'll know that frankincense was one of the three gifts from the
magi to the baby Jesus. Frankincense was mentioned more than
fifty times in the bible! Its a worthy topic of study as
inflammation is among the root causes of disease and
frankincense can help reduce inflammation and much more. Read  
about
why frankincense is in the prepper's medicine cabinet.

#2: Capsiacin (cayenne).
Capsiacin is a natural pain killer you'll find in your kitchen ~ it's
cayenne pepper! If you can't muster the spice, you can take
capsaicin in capsule form as a dietary supplement to help you
with pain. The capsaicin in cayenne pepper can ease psoriasis,
nerve pain and arthritis when applied to the skin. For arthritis,
lower back pain, headaches, join pain, or even a  tooth absess,
cayenne and capsiaicin are effective natural pain relief options.
Read more about
how to use cayenne for pain relief.

Rest assured that cayenne is "
safe and effective pain
management adjunct for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis,
neuralgias, and diabetic neuropathy," according to the a clinical
study published (Clinical Journal of Pain June 1998;14(2):97-106).
Capsaicin creams are available for penetrating pain relief without
the red stain of cayenne, but it's good to take note of the herbal
medication.

The bonus is that cayenne supports cardiovascular and digestive
functions and there's medical evidence that
capsaicin zaps cancer
cells!* Frankincense has "anti-inflammatory action similar to that
of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)."Despite the
evidence, the Food and Drug Administration won't have anyone
making that claim. That's because only drugs,not food, can legally
cure someone. Preppers are homesteaders at heart and know that
nature is more powerful than man.

    Notes: Capsaicin may make certain drugs less effective, so ask your
    doctor before trying a capsiacin regimen if you are taking Tagamet,
    Nexium, Pepcid, Prilosec or Zantac, for example.*  

    Use of capsaicin may make aspirin less effective as a pain reliever, as well
    as increase the risk of bleeding when used together.

#3: Cats Claw.
Cats Claw is nothing to scratch your head about. It has nothing to
do with cats.
Cats Claw is an herbal support to build immunity ~  
it's the alkaloid compounds of Cats Claw that promotes a healthy
immune system and detoxifies the body. Cats Claw also can
improve symptoms of different types of arthritis, and provide
support for digestive system disorders.


As with any herbal supplement, consult your healthcare provider
before use if you have a medical condition or if you are taking
prescription medication.

#4: Cedarwood oil.
Cedarwood is the familiar smell of hope chest. It keeps the moths
away! it also keeps the pain away. Mix with a carrier oil for an
excellent massage oil to reduce arthritis symptoms, inflammation
and loosen tight sore muscles and joints.

Cedarwood is also aatural treatment for skin conditions like
eczema and acne. Keep it in your first aid kit to help heal
wounds, scars and kill fungal infections with its antiseptic
properties.
Packed with health benefits  
Cedarwood oil has a warm, soft,
grounding, and comforting scent. It will also help keep away
moths. Those suffering with Fibromyalgia (a chronic
musculoskeletal disorder is a class of rheumatic disease) could
benefit from cedarwood oil. Fibromyalgia affects the way the body
processes pain signals and cedarwood oil has been found to
allieviate pain. Not that a different essential oil
Atlas cedar oil
(Cedrus atlantica) can alleviate post-surgery pain through
diffusion. Atlas Cedar has a warm, woody aroma and is used in
aromatherapy to calm and soothe away nervous tension as it has
both analgesic and anti-inflammatory sedative properties.

#5: Cloves and clove oil.
A potent natural remedy for toothaches is clove. The active
natural pain relieving agent in clove is eugenol, which is both a
local antiseptic and anaesthetic.

Clove as a natural analgesic is a good solution, but finding the
right formulation is hard to do yourself. Clove oil is good to have
on hand, but the ancients chewed on the herb to mitigate pain.
Cloves are the immature unopened flower buds of a tropical tree.
The large end of the clove is the four-pointed flower bud. Clove
oil still is an active ingredient in several mouthwash products and
a number of over-the-counter toothache pain-relief preparations.
Cloves kill intestinal parasites and exhibits broad anti-microbial
properties against fungi and bacteria, thus supporting its
traditional use as a treatment for diarrhea, intestinal worms, and
other digestive ailments.

#6: Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc).
Another natural pain relief that may be in your kitchen is ginger.
Ginger may not be the first thing you think about for pain relief,
but it certainly can help relieve pain naturally and the research
supports this.

According to an abstract published in the U.S. National Library of
Medicine, National Institutes of Health, the current evidence is
that
ginger has significant effects as an anti-inflammatory and
anti-oxidative.

A bonus about ginger is that it also contains compounds of
gingerols, shogaol, and paradols, which can prevent various
cancers according to the abstract.

#7: Magnesium oil.
Magnesium oil is an alternative pain relief for sore muscles and
joint pain. Magnesium oil is also a natural remedy for restless
legs, leg cramps,headaches and migraines ~ as well as stress
and anxiety relief. Magnesium oil helps you relax in the evening,
fall asleep easier, and sleep better throughout the night.  
Magnesium is an important mineral that strengthens and hydrates
the skin and it even boosts your energy levels.

Magnesium is an absolute essential mineral the body needs to
perform daily functions including metabolizing fatty acids and
proteins. Magnesium is also a key factor in what is called
neuromuscular transmission and muscle relaxation.

  • To use Magnesium oil: Spray to the affected region of the
    body (avoiding the eyes) around 4-5 times a day. A gentle
    tingling in the skin is normal.

#8: Menthol.
Menthol is known for its cooling and invigorating sensation when
applied topically. A
pain relieving liniment spray by J.R. Watkins
contains menthol as well as camphor, eucalyptus oil and thymol
for soothing and purifying aroma. The natural pain-relieving
properties of camphor are blended with the penetrating power of
menthol to create a convenient, fast-acting spray.

Menthol can be manmade or of mint. It contains a local
anesthetic to numb nerves, and is antipruritic, which means it
relieves itching. Menthol is a powerful analgesic (painkiller that
provides temporary relief from aches & pains), as well as an
antispasmodic (reduces muscle cramping and muscle spasms).

Due to it's amazing cooling, analgesic, and anesthetic properties,
menthol is also extremely helpful in the treating of sunburns and
razor burns. The cooling sensation simulates the feeling of ice
providing some instant relief from pain. You'll find menthol in
peppermint essential oil.  With peppermint oil not only do you get
fresh breath, but also improved dental health. Peppermint has a
bacteria-fighting qualities to limit tooth decay, and has menthol
to help numb the pain.

#9: Magnetic copper bracelet.
Millions of people wear magnetic therapy jewelry for health, pain
management, arthritis, carpal tunnel, headaches, to increase Chi,
and many other conditions.

  • NOTE: Do not use magnets if you have an electronic
    implanted medical device, or if you're pregnant. Consult
    ayour physicain before use.

#10: Peppermint.
Peppermint Essential Oil is known for its cooling and invigorating
properties. It has been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory
properties as well to ease muscle and joint pain, and to fight
bacterial, fungal and viral infections. Peppermint essential oil
even has powerful soothing properties that help relieve itchy skin.
It's analgesic properties have been shown to relieve nerve pain,
especially from neuropathy, and shingles.

#11: Thyme.
It's about time preppers took a closer look at thyme as a pain
remedy. Thyme is natural
analgesic, and it's also an antibacterial,
antibiotic, antiviral, and an antifungal ~ making thyme oil
immensely useful to preppers.

For pain relief

#12: Turmeric.
Turmeric lowers histamine levels to reduce inflammation, and this
stimulates the adrenal glands to produce more cortisone, which is
the body's natural painkiller. Right is Curcumin C3 Complex, which
neutralizes free radicals to help support joint, brain, heart and
circulatory health. It can help prevent joint pain!

  • How to use Turmeric for reducing pain: Adding black
    pepper with turmeric in your cooking increases the active
    ingredient of turmeric, curcumin, by twenty times!
    Alternatively, if you're using turmeric essential oil ~ Mix with
    black pepper oil for maximum relief of joint pain.

#13: Valerian Root.
Valerian root calms your nerves and can give you a more restful
night. Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis) has a relaxing effect on
the nervous system, so it's another
natural alternative to aspirin.
It's a natural herb that helps support a restful sleep.Valerian root
not only has sedative effects, but also is an anti-spasmodic,
meaning it relaxes muscles.


#14: White willow bark.
White willow bark - the most famous of nature's aspirin. Since
antiquity ~ around Hipocrates time ~ people have used Willow
Bark as a natural pain medicine. Just like aspirin, Willow Bark is
used for fever, the common cold, and the flu. It's also used as a
remedy for headaches, muscle pain, menstrual cramps, and
rheumatoid arthritis.

Why not go with nature instead of with aspirin for your Shingles
pain? Willow bark has a chemical called salicin that's similar to
aspirin. While current regulations do not require willow bark to
include any cautions on its label, you consult your physician to
ensure it doesn't interfere with your current regimen or condition.
For example, Willow bark may strengthen the effects of blood-
thinning drugs and increase the risk of bleeding. Ask your doctor.
Like aspirin, there's a danger of developing Reye syndrome,
especially in children where it may cause liver damage.

  • How to use Willow Bark:

  • Headache: To use willow bark as an analgesic for a
    headache you'll need boil the herb to make a tea or
    chew the bark directly.


#14: Witch hazel.
Witch hazel is a natural ingredient of Tucks medicated
hemorrhoidal pads as it provides immediate relief from burning
and itching. It's a pain in the butt to be stuck with hemorrhoidal
pain. A person who has hemorrhoidal pain experiences swollen
and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus. It not only causes
discomfort, but sometimes also bleeding. The older you get, the
more realistic this kind of pain will be, so you may as well be
prepared, especially if you're prepping for seniors.

  • To use witch hazel: apply directly to the skin with a cotton
    pad for help with acne. For Shingles you can spray witch
    hazel to the blisters and it will help dry them, which is the
    goal in the blister stage. For hemmorhoidal pain, use the
    medicated pads as directed on the packaging.

Happy endings...
One thing to remember is that pain has a purpose! It's your
body's way to tell you that something isn't quite right with the
hope that you'll remedy how you treat your body. Perhaps you're
not getting the proper nutrition, maybe you need more rest, or
perhaps your body is in distress because it's trying to detoxify.

Whatever the case you need to deal with the pain beyond just
giving yourself medicine. Besides, with so many natural ways to
deal with the pain, there's no reason to turn to man-made drugs.
