Effective natural anti-
inflammatory and pain relief
One in four Australians and New Zealanders
is currently using pain medications,
making these our most commonly
used medications. There are many
pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories that
are immensely effective in alleviating pain
and inflammation. But some may cause
adverse side effects and people are still
in chronic pain -- their medication is not
providing adequate relief.
Fortunately, nature has provided us
with many remarkable herbs which have
been used traditionally for centuries to
treat acute pain and inflammation. Some
of these are:
● Turmeric: which has anti-inflammatory
actions and has traditionally been used
in herbal medicines to reduce the pain
and swelling of arthritic and rheumatic
● Boswellia: which has analgesic, anti-
rheumatic and anti-inflammatory actions,
for all types of pain, but specifically for
arthritic or traumatic pain associated
● Ginger: which has traditionally been
used as an anti-inflammatory for arthritis.
The combination of hops, rosemary, and
olive leaf can also provide excellent long
term anti-inflammatory relief for chronic
pain and inflammation. This combination
may assist in relieving the pain and
inflammation associated with osteoarthritis
and rheumatism, and is safe to take long
term. Modern formulations containing
these ingredients can be rapid in their
action, often reducing symptoms within
a few days.
There are many natural herbal and
homeopathic treatments to help you
detoxify and overcome inflammation.
These should only be undertaken with
the help of a qualified practitioner who
can take your individual circumstances
into consideration. Some herbs may
be contraindicated if taking certain
pharmaceutical medications or if sensitive
to salicylates. A naturopath can develop
a supplement program designed to help
you detoxify, overcome inflammation and
lose weight naturally and safely.
Finally you will be able to break
the weight gain -- inflammation -- toxicity
