Since joint pain makes movement so difficult, it is easy to become desperate for a way to treat it that actually works, but you don't have to go out and buy hundreds of dollars worth of products. Relief can be found by purchasing a few inexpensive natural remedies from your local health food store.
Years ago, strips of black, twisted candy that were called “licorice sticks” were sold to children. They were made with licorice extract that was harvested from the roots of the licorice plant. Now, this candy is made with artificial flavoring instead. But the plant still remains. It is often used to treat upset stomachs. However, since it reduces inflammation, it also works for treating joint pain. Dried licorice root that has been ground up can be purchased in capsules or tea bags for easy use. Sometimes, health food stores still sell the roots whole, but it is rare.
Stepping on this plant will quickly remind a person that they should never walk through the yard with no shoes on. It delivers a painful sting that leaves red marks on the skin. But if someone is brave enough to pick it for its benefits of reducing joint pain, they will be pleasantly surprised at how well it works. And as an added benefit, stinging nettle is also high in calcium. The safest way to avoid this plant's wrath is to buy it in capsules or use a product that already has Nettle included, such as Super Blue Stuff OTC or Super White Stuff OTC from BLUESPRING.
Burdock grows in grassy meadows. Purple, spiky flowers burst forth from the center of it and each part of it is edible. But the real health properties lie in its roots. They are useful in treating a wide variety of conditions caused by inflammation, such as diabetes, cancer, and arthritis. That is why burdock works so well for joint pain. The only drawback to taking it is that it acts as a natural diuretic. But since it purifies the blood and detoxes the body at the same time, most people don't seem to mind this aspect of taking it.
Bromelain is found in the sweet fruit from the pineapple tree. It is rich in enzymes that reduce inflammation and swelling in the joints. Pineapple can be eaten fresh or added to a tea. But the canned variety isn't recommended because it is packed in syrup that is high in sugar. And sugar contributes to inflammation. Some health food stores sell bromelain extract capsules for those who don't want to have to eat this fruit. Bromelain is also an ingredient in BLUESPRING's Joint Support Formula; give it a try!
Fluid that builds up in the joints cause further pressure and pain, which can be relieved by drinking pectin. Simply stir a couple of spoonfuls of this natural remedy for joint pain into a glass of grape juice and drink up. Pectin works the best for relieving pain if it is combined with the other above mentioned remedies though.
