Pain can be one of the most debilitating symptoms and side-effects of ill-health. Finding natural alternatives is easier than you think.
There are many herbal alternatives to the harsher, more conventional methods of pain relief currently on the market.
Last month we focussed on the importance of keeping active and how to support the health of the musculoskeletal system. This month we are continuing along a similar thread, but looking at how herbs can help provide relief from pain and inflammation. Our hero herbs this month are boswellia, turmeric and ginger. Don't forget to check out our piece on the importance of keeping active which contains some gems on conventional painkillers and Ayurvedic alternatives. We also have a hot off the press review of turmeric discussing its journey from traditional to modern medicine.
