Nobody likes to be in pain, but the good news is there are some simple steps you can take at home that will often provide relief.
Do you have general body aches? Try taking a warm bath with Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate). The magnesium relaxes muscles naturally and can help reduce swelling.
You could also take a natural anti-inflammatory home remedy, such as turmeric, ginger, or apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar can be a bit harsh taken directly, but 1-2 tablespoons mixed in a glass of water with lemon, honey (and even cayenne if you’re feeling brave) can be enjoyable and can help reduce inflammation.
Did you pull a muscle or experience an acute but minor injury? Icing the affected area can help minimize inflammation and pain (and the sooner, the better!).
For a lingering ache or pain in a joint, you can alternate icing and heating the area, no more than 15-20 minutes at a time of each. This will not only help control the inflammation, but will also bring more blood to the area, clearing away the damage at a cellular level, and helping to spur on the body’s natural healing process. Be sure not to put a cold or hot compress directly on the skin – wrap it in a thin towel first to protect yourself.
Try some gentle stretches to release tension and allow for more comfortable use of your muscles, back, joints, and limbs.
Are you sleeping well? Your body needs good, restful sleep in order to repair the damage it has endured throughout the day or to recover from an injury or illness. Try allowing yourself enough time in your schedule to experience the full benefits & recuperation that can accompany a great night of sleep.
All-Natural Treatments for Pain
Do you have aches and pains that don’t seem to go away no matter what? Whether these stem from an illness, injury, disease, or simple wear and tear, they make life less fun by inhibiting physical motion and restricting activities that can be enjoyed or even performed at all. Luckily, there are natural treatments that can help.
Your body is incredible. It performs near miracles through the natural healing process and has been doing so since conception. Its ability to do so, however, wanes with age. There are less and less of these incredibly powerful cells that can repair and regenerate new, healthy cells as you age, which affects how you heal and recover, and the levels of soreness and pain that go along with it. By taking a concentration of these regenerative cells and introducing it into the affected area, your body gets an infusion of some of the most powerful cells that are able to increase healing activity and help you get back to normal faster, and hopefully help towards feeling better than ever. You can find out if platelet-rich plasma injections, or PRP, and/or regenerative cells can help your condition by contacting our clinic.
