  1. It is very common to pop a pain-relieving medicine even for a slight headache. According to the studies, about 30 million Americans take drugs every day for a range of pain related problems such as headaches, muscle cramps, chronic arthritis, etc. Most of us, even for mild pain, take non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs ignoring the side-effects of them. The overuse of these drugs could have a negative impact on the health. Some of them may cause kidney problems, bleeding in the stomach, ulcers, strokes, heart attack, and many other health complications. However to overcome pain, instead of pain killers, natural pain killers could be used to overcome pain. Some of the natural pain killers are given below:

    Natural Pain Killers - Oral Use


    Turmeric has natural healing properties which contains a compound called as curcumin. It is capable of blocking the proteins responsible for inflammation. It also alleviates the pain due to inflammation and chronic pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Besides owing to its anti-inflammatory properties, it has been found beneficial for heart diseases and diabetes.

    Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids
    Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids is considered as one of the natural pain relief medicines.

  4. I thought that marijuana is the apex of all and everyone knows it..thats wy i dint explain it here.. :smoke:
  5. Haha okay, just making sure
  6. I strongly believe in using Natural Medicine Government, if possible, and have found some really effective remedies in many areas. Evening Primrose oil, as is the staple food, are already so I have also been used as shepherds purse and a good jacket - dramatic results there!
  7. There's also peppers! The Capsicum inside of them is what makes them hot, and its been proven as a reliable pain killer. The more Capsicum, the hotter the pepper. Plus, your mouth will burn so bad, you'll just forget about whatever else there was going on.
