There are a mountain of powerful, all-natural herbs in the world that help the human body heal in a vast number of ways. If your back hurts, for example, there are more herbal remedies for back pain than you can shake a stick at. Here’s just a rough sampling of a few:
Common Herbal Remedies for Back Pain
- Ginger: It seems that the Chinese used ginger for just about everything. It’s a flavor, it’s a purifier, it’s a longevity-inducing agent…and yes, it helps with back pain. Specifically, ginger is a decently powerful anti-inflammatory, which means if your have any kind of a back injury, it helps keep the pain down.
- Garlic: Basically the same thing here — in many parts of America, it’s not really Chinese food if it doesn’t have both ginger and garlic in it. Garlic helps with back pain by reducing inflammation as well as directly fighting infections.
- Turmeric: Armed with a substance called ‘curcumin’ that is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory chemicals in the natural world, turmeric has been helping Indians keep their swelling down for literal millennia.
- White Willow Bark: The mother of the modern medicine Aspirin, white willow bark contains the same effective ingredient: acetylsalicylic acid, a great pain reducer and moderately powerful inflammation reliever as well.
- Cayenne Pepper: South American natives have been applying cayenne and other hot-pepper compresses to their backs for as far back as anyone can tell, and modern studies have recently borne out this conclusion: pain goes down, though the exact mechanism is less understood.
Uncommon Herbal Remedies for Back Pain
- Indian Frankincense: An extract of Indian Frankincense has been used by practitioners of Ayurvedic Medicine for arthritis and other inflammatory diseases for thousands of years. It cuts pain and inflammation quite effectively.
- Devil’s Claw: African natives discovered hundreds of years ago that devil’s claw, when mashed up and swallowed, does an excellent job of reducing muscle pains, including back pains.
- Pineapple Extract: Pineapples contain a strong enzyme called bromelain that not only acts as an indirect anti-inflammatory, but also directly assists in the regrowth of injured muscle tissue. Eating plain pineapples is decent, but a pineapple extract can give you even more pain-fighting power with less carbs attached.
- Stinging Nettle: Ancient Europeans first used stinging nettle as a diuretic, but rapidly learned that it has an excellent pain-reducing effect on arthritis and other inflammation-related diseases.
Modern Supplements: Multi-Action Remedies
Of course, one of the best ways to tackle back pain is to hit it with several of these powerful pain-fighters at the same time.
Inflam-95, for example, combines the inflammation-killing power of Ginger, Indian Frankincense, Turmeric, and Stinging Nettle along with a unique pepper-based ‘supercharger’ called BioPerine that helps your body absorb and utilize the other ingredients. If you really want to get rid of your back pain for good, something like Inflam-95 could be considered the ‘mixed martial arts’ of the back pain relief world.
