Chronic pain a major problem for many
Right now, millions of people are feeling some type of pain or discomfort. For some, it’s a result of over-doing it, like maybe exercising too vigorously or trying to lift something that was too heavy. For others, it is ongoing, chronic pain that never seems to go away. Although pain is your body’s way of letting us know that something is wrong, sometimes it would be nice to reply “We know! We overdid it yesterday. Now please stop hurting!” But unfortunately, many people never get this type of relief and live in constant discomfort.
Natural approaches to pain relief
Being in pain accounts for millions of doctor’s appointments every year, and, in an effort to feel better, we also spend millions on over the counter and prescription pain relieving drugs. These medications often work quite well at reducing our discomfort, but they also tend to come with a host of side effects ranging from stomach upset to even addiction.
Fortunately, there are some natural alternatives to pain management that have been shown to be very helpful in controlling not only the discomfort, but also the inflammation that often accompanies it. Specifically, these four nutrients have a proven track record in helping support your body’s response to pain and inflammation:
- Rutin—This natural flavonoid is found in many foods, and in supplement form, is often derived from the fava tree. It has been shown to strengthen blood vessels and capillaries and heal wounds. Rutin can also offer support to your body’s circulatory system and may help relieve inflammation.
- White Willow Bark—Rich in salicylic acid, white willow bark may reduce the amount of prostaglandins found in the body. Because prostaglandins are directly linked to pain and inflammation, finding an effective way to lower them may also help reduce discomfort.
- Turmeric—A bright yellow spice and antioxidant, turmeric is also rich in natural anti-inflammatory powers. For years, this nutrient has been used to help heal arthritis and other conditions that involve inflammation.
- A blend of enzymes including bromelain, chymotrypsin, pancreatin, papain, and trypsin—By helping to boost the amount of blood that goes to sore areas, all of these enzymes have been found to have a direct effect on pain and inflammation. They have also been shown to help reduce swelling and bruising, and even shorten the time it takes to heal from an injury.
