Natural analgesics. Efficient and safe.

Natural analgesics.

We all feel pain sometimes and reach for pills to overcome that uncomfortable feeling.

All medicines, even those for pain, have a bad effect on the health of the stomach, so it is not good to use them too often.

It is not uncommon for people to end up with a ruined stomach using some pills.

It turns out that some drugs cure one and destroy another.

In order not to get into this situation, to feel pain and not to take a painkiller because you have destroyed your stomach, we suggest natural painkillers.
There are many natural painkillers, and some of them you already have in the kitchen.
These painkillers are completely safe, do not affect the stomach as much as the chemicals we constantly take into the body and have no long-term effects on our body.

 Natural analgesics

1. Turmeric

Also known as Indian saffron, it helps fight various types of inflammation, chronic pain, sore back and muscles, toothache, arthritis, successfully regenerates tissues and is great for detoxification as well as for improving overall health. You can add it to various dishes, but also tea, smoothies and juices. It is best combined with black pepper because Indian saffron is then the most nutritious.

2. Ginger

This extremely medicinal herb will help relieve chronic joint pain and arthritis. You can add ginger to tea, soups, desserts and smoothies.

Some people are very sensitive to ginger, so gradually add it to your diet.

3. Chili peppers

The main ingredient, capsaicin, is responsible for the beneficial effect of chili peppers, which weakens the signals that something is hurting you, which the body sends to the brain. Successfully treats joint pain, fibromyalgia, skin rash, migraines and headaches. If you can handle the taste, put three teaspoons of cayenne pepper in a glass of water and drink for instant relief.

4. Garlic

Toothache, ear infections and arthritic pain are successfully treated with garlic. Make your own garlic oil: add three chopped cloves of garlic to half a cup of olive oil and simmer on low heat for two minutes. Strain and leave to stand for up to two weeks.

Heat the oil prepared in this way and gently rub it into sore joints or muscles. If you have an ear infection, drip two drops of warm oil. If you have a toothache, make a mixture of crushed garlic cloves and a pinch of salt and apply to the tooth.

5. Clove

Toothache, as well as sore gums, is strongly overcome by cloves. It is best to chew it and the clove will release its powerful ingredient with analgesic action, eugenol. If you can’t stand its pungent taste, make strong clove tea.

6. Cherries

Perhaps the most delicious analgesic helps with arthritis, gout and chronic headaches. The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect of cherries is due to the antioxidant anthocyanin, which is abundant in this juicy fruit. Anthocyanin eliminates enzymes that cause tissue inflammation and pain.

7. Apple cider vinegar

If you suffer from heartburn, mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink before meals or sip slowly after a meal to avoid heartburn. Apple cider vinegar helps to burn fat and protein better, which causes an unpleasant burning sensation in the abdomen.

8. Blueberries

They are the best natural remedy for treating and preventing urinary tract infection. They are full of tannins, a natural organic compound that effectively kills bacteria that cause urinary tract inflammation.

9. Black pepper

It is effective in fighting arthritis, stomach pain and digestive problems. Black pepper has been used in healing since traditional Chinese medicine. Pepper contains substances that have anti-inflammatory properties. Use freshly ground pepper as an addition to a meal, but be careful as larger amounts can slow down the effects of some medications.

10. Mint oil

It is best used to soothe stomach upsets and irritable bowel syndrome. Instead of oil, the leaves of the plant can also be used. Leave one teaspoon of dried peppermint in a cup of hot water for ten minutes, strain and cool. Drink tea 4-5 times a day between meals. Be careful because large doses can be poisonous, as pure menthol is poisonous.
