Prepper remedies for pain

Prepper remedies and pain management secrets:
Before crisis hits and you are stuck with pain in an emergency,
stock up on over-the-counter medications to help you get through
the pain. Look also to
natural pain remedies, so you always have
a resource of pain relieving medications.

Prepper remedies for dealing with pain
Pain is something you can't avoid, but you can avoid the feeling
the pain. Make sure you have enough pain medications to get you
through an emergency when the pharmacies are closed. Preppers
should stock pain relieving medications including over-the-counter
pain medications and herbal remedies.

Here is the prepper resource of pain relieving medications...

#1: Arthritis pain.
Preppers who've turned the half century mark may feel arthritic
pain and during crisis is when it could flair up. Stress is a factor
for flare ups as is overexertion. Arthritis is inflammation of one or
more joints, and it causes stiffness and pain that may worsen as
you age. Eucalyptus, wintergreen, and cedarwood oil and many
more essential oils can naturally reduce inflammation and ease
arthritis symptoms!

Did you know that
as weather changes arthritis gets worse thanks
to barametric pressure? In the winter months, you should reach
for these essential oil remedies for arthritic pain:

  • Cedarwood oil. 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. Mix with
    a carrier oil for an excellent massage oil to reduce arthritis
    symptoms, inflammation and loosen tight sore muscles and
    joints. Be sure to keep cedarwood oil in your prepper's
    medicine cabinet as Keep it can heal wounds, scars and kill
    fungal infections with its antiseptic properties.

  • NOTE that a different essential oil Atlas cedar oil (Cedrus
    atlantica) can alleviate post-surgery pain through diffusion.
    Atlas Cedar, also pictured right, 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.

  • Eucalyptus essential oil. Among the most popular of
    essential oils, eucalyptus oil helps provide a relaxing
    therapeutic massage to help reduce inflammation and pain
    when applied topically. Try massaging the oil in circular
    motion on the effected area. A combination of lavender,
    marjoram, rosemary, and peppermint with eucalyptus, clearly
    has major effects on decreasing pain and depression levels
    in arthritic patients according to a study published in the U.S.
    National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.


  • Peppermint oil. Peppermint oil has many prepper uses ~ it's
    a powerful anti-inflammatory and potent analgesic that has
    been used to control pain since antiquity and an abstract
    published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National
    Institutes of Health, proves it:

  • Plai. With Plai you can play again! Yes, it's a "plai" on words,
    but when sore muscles fail to relax or tissue wounds are
    slow to heal, many massage therapists turn to plai oil.
    Pictured right, Plai essential oil is a close relative to ginger
    and has strikingly similar to eucalyptus with spicy notes. Plai
    fights infections and has anti-inflammatory properties to
    release tension in the body by soothing the joints and
    muscles.

  • Spearmint essential oil. Cooling, invigorating and
    stimulating, Spearmint Essential oil or Mentha Spicata, is an
    analgesic you can rely on for arthritis or other aches and
    pains. That's because it contains menthol. Just apply
    spearmint oil typically which will causes a cooling sensation
    and inhibit pain receptors. Spearmint Essential Oil is an
    excellent local/topical anesthetic, as well as being an
    antispasmodic, astringent, carminative, decongestant,
    digestive, diuretic, expectorant, stimulant and restorative.
    And you thought spearmint was just a favorite flavor of
    chewing gum! It's potent, but remember that spearmint
    essential oil also may irritate mucous membranes.

  • Sweet orange essential oil. Another kind of herbal pain
    relief preppers can rely on is something extremely aromatic
    ~ sweet orange essential oil.


  • Turmeric (Curcumin). Instead of reaching for the ibuprofen
    or Alieve, grab some curcumin (the ingredient extracted from
    turmeric). One of the many benefits of turmeric is the
    analgesic effects. Turmeric lowers histamine levels to reduce
    inflammation, and this stimulates the adrenal glands to
    produce more cortisone, which is the body's natural
    painkiller. Curcumin reduces inflammation and eases
    symptoms associated with joint pain. Adding black pepper
    increases the active ingredient of turmeric, curcumin, by
    twenty times!

  • Wintergreen. Wintergreen has a history of use as a pain
    reliever. It is also believed to increase the speed of healing
    for skin disorders, and when added to lotions, acts as a
    natural moisturizer. Wintergreen essential oil has cooling
    and soothing properties known to help soothe head tension
    and to relax muscles. It has a sweet fruity aroma with
    creamy undertones. Wintergreen is an analgesic,
    antiarthritic, antiseptic and also an astringent. In short it's
    an effective natural remedy for pain.

#2: Back pain.
Many of the same natural medication for pain mentioned above
will work for back pain including bosweillia, bromelain and
Turmeric (curcumin). Below are more remedies for back pain:

  • Arnica montana (or Mountain daisy) has been used for
    centuries as a natural pain reliever. Arnica relief oil eases
    discomfort and provides deep penetrating relief from aches,
    pains and bruising that is associated with injury, strain,
    arthritis, stiffness or overuse and reduces pain, swelling,
    bruising. Long lasting, quickly absorbing, non-staining and
    chemical free.

  • Astaxanthin (or Haematoccocus pluvialis mircoalga).
    Astaxanthin is among the most powerful antioxidants nature
    has to offer. This naturally occurring carotenoid pigment is  
    in wild Pacific sockeye salmon as well as lobster, shrimp and
    trout. Astaxanthin can help prevent stroke, and it's a natural
    treatment option for Alzheimers and Parkinson's disease. I

  • Fish oil. Think of fish oil for nonspecific neck and back pain.
  • Fish oil can relieve pain, according to an abstract published
    in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes
    of Health.

#3: Diabetic Nerve Pain.
Preppers who have diabetes have much to prepare for in advance
of an emegency and diabetic nerve pain is among them. There are
many products to help, including Lidocaine.

  • Aspercreme Lidocaine. Fast acting, odor free Aspercreme
    pain relief creme numbs away pain with 4% Lidocaine. It
    penetrates to desensitize aggravated nerves. Lidocaine is a
    topical anesthetic cream that targets nerve receptors without
    burning or irritation.
Atlas Cedar Oil (Cedrus Atlantica)
Above, the pain relief formula of Arnicare cream has arnica as the natural
ingredient

#4: Foot pain.
Foot pain happens. Whether bugging out by foot, hunting or
forgaging for food, or working on the homestead, foot pain will be
an issue for preppers and survivalists at some point in crisis. As
well,
preppers who have diabetes nearly always will have some
sort pain and inflammation just as a part of their everyday
routine. Preppers need a plan now to mitigate foot pain. Below
are some prepper remedies for pain.

  • Topricin Food Pain Relief Cream is specially formulated to
    effectively treat foot and ankle pain when you need it most
    ant it's all natural. There's no odor or fragrance, no
    petroleum, no mineral oil, no lanolin, no capsaicin, no
    menthol, no paragons. It's non-greasy and non-staining.
    Topricin treats sports injuries such as Plantar fasciitis,
    achilles tendonitis, strains and cramps, impact injuries and
    bruising. The medicine is safe for adults, the elderly,
    diabetics, pregnant and nursing women, and children ( for
    children under 2 consult pediatrician).

Be sure to read our complete article on
prepping your feet for
bugging out.

#5: Headaches.
"Not now, I've got a headache, honey" isn't going to suffice in an
emergency. In times of crisis, or anytime, you need to have a way
to handle headaches.

You have several options when it comes to headache pain:

  • Aspirin. Aspirin is a pain reliever with many useful
    applications for preppers beyond relieving headache pains.
    Read Weird (and Not so Weird Uses) of Aspirin. And you'll
    find that when directly applied to skin, aspirin will relieve a
    bee sting or a bug bite. Some say aspirin can help plants
    fight infection! Aspirin applied orally can protect your heart
    by keeping your blood flowing freely, so for heart attack
    mitigation it's highly effective! Aspirin is not appropriate for
    everyone, so be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin
    an aspirin regimen. Aspirin is an analgesic ideal for
    treatment of burns too!



  • Peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is a highly effective analgesic
    to ease headaches. According to Dr. Josh Axe, you can apply
    peppermint oil on the  forehead and on the temples to
    release a tension headache. Peppermint essential oil is one
    of the four essential oils for headaches that he recommends.

  • white willow bark - the most famous of nature's aspirin. To
    use willow bark as an analgesic though, you'll need boil the
    herb to make a tea or chew the bark directly.

#6: Hemorrhoidal pain.
Yes, 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.

  • witch hazel is a natural ingredient of Tucks medicated
    hemorrhoidal pads as it provides immediate relief from
    burning and itching.

#7: Insect bite pain.
Bug bites happen and you can take the sting out by having a few
extra items in your first aid it.

  • Sting relief pads with 2% lidocaine, right, offer soothing aid
    from all minor irritations, including mosquito bites and bee
    stings. They not only reduce the urge to scratch affected
    areas, but also reduce chance of secondary infection. The
    active ingredient for pain is Lidocaine, relieves pain and
    numbs the skin. Lidocaine can cause low blood pressure,
    though this product has no specific indications on this.

#8: Tooth aches.
Tooth ache pain is not something to ignore, but when there is no
dentist and you need to resolve your problem it's good to have
some pain medicines in your prepper's medicine cabinet. Here are
some of them:

  • Benzocaine* (dental topical anesthetic). Examples include
    Colgate Orabase, Dentek instant pain relief, Orajel, and
    Hurricaine:



  • Hurricaine with Benzocaine. You'll need a topical oral
    anesthetic as well. Clove essential oil is a good start for a
    homeopathic remedy, but have on hand Hurricaine or similar
    topical anesthetic gel. Hurricaine is made of 20% benzocaine
    in a bottle that tastes of wild cherry to anesthetize mucosal
    tissue to relieve discomfort.


  • 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.

    grab some curcumin (the ingredient extracted from 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. Adding black
    pepper increases the active ingredient of turmeric, curcumin,

    neutralizes free radicals to help support joint, brain, heart
    and circulatory health. It can help prevent joint pain!

Topical Analgesics:
A topical analgesic will help alleviate pain on contact of your skin.
Salicylates, along with capsaicin, menthol, and camphor, compose
the counter-irritant class of topical analgesics, Gere's what they
are and how they work:

  • Capsaicin ~ A compound of cayenne that can decrease pain,
    capsaicin is very valuable in prepping. Capsaicin stimulates
    pain intensity signals in the body and then decreases the
    intensity. In a sense it confuses the body and this eases
    pain.

  • Camphor ~ Camphor comes from a distillation of the bark of
    a tree. Think Cinnamomum camphora (cinnamon bark). You'll
    find Vick's VapoRub has camphor, but a man-made version.

  • Menthol  ~ Menthol is known for its cooling and invigorating
    sensation when applied topically. Menthol is reported to
    contain local anesthetic (numbs nerves), is antipruritic
    (relieves itching), analgesic (painkiller that provides
    temporary relief from aches & pains), antispasmodic (reduces
    muscle cramping and muscle spasms) and has anti-irritant
    qualities. 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.

  • Salicylates ~ Salicylates are chemicals found in plants. It's
    also an aspirin ingredient and it's found in other pain-
    relieving medications.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs:
Analgesic is a fancy word for painkiller.

Acetaminophen:
Acetaminophen is a kind of pain reliever works to reduce pain
signals in your brain. It temporarily relieves minor aches and
pains due to headache, muscular aches, minor pain of arthritis,
toothache, backache, the common cold and premenstrual and
menstrual cramps. It can also temporarily reduce fever.

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs:
Here are three popular kinds of analgesics that are non-steriodal:

  • Aspirin (bayer, St. Joseph) ~ for relief of headache, muscle
    aches, backaches, minor arthritis and other joint pain.

  • Ibuprofin (Advil Motrin) ~ for relief of fever,

  • Naproxen (Aleve) ~ for relief of arthritis, backache, gout
    sprains, menstrual cramps. Note: this drug isn't for everyone.

Foods to relieve pain

  • Ginger ~ Ginger may not be the first thing you think about
    for pain relief, but it certainly can help relieve the pain 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.
