Here in the post below comprises of 5 natural food that serve as painkiller for human body.
Believe it or not, you could have an entire kitchen full of natural painkillers.
Excluding junk food and most processed products, food IS medicine.
Read below to learn how you can live without NSAIDs, reflux medication, and treat/prevent common infections without expensive medications or side effects.
Here are 5 natural pain killers “hiding” in your kitchen.
1. Coffee for Migraines
Most migraine medication contains a small amount of anhydrous (powdered) caffeine.
But there are benefits to the regular liquid version: the National Headache foundation recommends chasing your OTC migraine medication with 12 ounces of very strong coffee. Why? Caffeine boosts absorption of medication in the stomach lining, increasing the effectiveness of your medication by 40% or more.
2. Honey for cancer and cold sores
Honey has amazing antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
According to research performed at the Dubai Specialized Medical Center in the United Arab Emirates, unpasteurized honey heals cold sores and canker sores 43% faster than prescription creams. Apply a dab of honey four times daily at the onset of the sore.
3. Water for any injury
There’s a reason you’re put on a continuous IV during surgeries and hospital stays: water heals.
No matter what type of injury, inflammation, or illness you’re fighting, simply keeping yourself hydrated will make a big difference. Experts recommend eight 8-oz (or five 12-oz) glasses of water daily to kick-start the healing process.
Water helps keep the cartilage, discs, and lubricating fluids between your bones well-hydrated, ensuring your bones can move smoothly without pain. Water also helps dilute and flush out inflammatory compounds – such as histamines – that injury produces, lowering swelling and pain caused by inflammation.
4. Peppermint for muscle pain
Naturopathic Doctor Mark Stengler recommends soaking in warm water three times weekly with 10 drops of peppermint essential oil.
The combination of warm water and peppermint is shown to ease muscle cramps 25% more effectively than OTC pain killers and – best of all – reduce the frequency of pain flair ups.
5. Pineapple for intestinal gas
Pineapple is jam-packed with proteolytic enzymes, which aid in breaking down certain gas-producing proteins in the stomach and small intestines.
Researchers at Stanford University found that one cup of pineapple daily helped relieve symptoms of painful gas and bloating within 72 hours.
So here are the list of 5 natural food you need to take for pain. Help to share the post with your friends.
