Whether you are experiencing inflammation as a result of tendinitis, arthritis, bursitis or back/neck strain, western medicine treatments like cortisone shots and other chemical based anti-inflammatory medicines are not your only options for treatment.
Here are my top 3 natural remedies you can use to effectively treat your inflammation without side effects. Plus, a new and delicious treatment recently researched for arthritis inflammation.
The turmeric spice is what gives the yellow color of curry and American mustard and has a distinctive sharp flavor. It is recommended for all inflammatory disorders, including arthritis, tendinitis, and auto immune conditions. Take 400 to 600 milligrams of turmeric extracts (available in tablets or capsules) three times per day or as directed on the product label. I like to add it to my food in its powdery spice form.
I first discovered China-Gel during my 200 hour yoga teacher training. I was so sore after 15 hour yoga days that I could barely move. This magic gel helped soothe my achy muscles instantly. Since then, I have recommended it to friends and family with various inflammation issues and they’ve all loved it!
How does it work? It stimulates the body’s endorphin response to pain and reduces the pain – producing “P factor” in muscle tissue, thereby lessening pain and discomfort, and enhancing healing. The deep penetrating effect offers long lasting cool-to-warm soothing relief. Its herbal ingredients are menthol, camphor, ginseng extract, angelica extract, lavender oil, aloe vera and witch hazel.
#3 PanAway Essential Oil
PanAway is an excellent and effective blend of essential oils that was specifically designed for inflammation and pain. It brings additional oxygen into the site of the injured or damaged tissue which speeds up the healing process as well.
It’s a great option for muscle and bone pain, sprains, arthritis, ligaments and any kind of injuries. I use it for neck or back pain after an uncomfortable plane ride or difficult night of sleep.
#4 Virgin Coconut Oil
Researchers in India recently discovered that the antioxidants unique to virgin coconut oil reduced inflammation associated with arthritis more effectively than current pharmaceutical drugs.
This is probably the yummiest solution as you can use this oil for cooking or as an ingredient in your smoothies or spread on your bread.
