Curejoy Expert Gina Hodge Explains:

Natural pain relief foods and supplements are plenty. The main reason why we choose natural remedies is because most synthesized pain killers (medical term “Analgesics”) come with their own set of side effects. Some easily available and widely consumed ones like Acetaminophen- causes liver damage; Ibuprofen or Naproxen – causes kidney problems; and Aspirin – known to have mild blood-thinning effect.

Nature has programmed our bodies to react to inflammation (cause of pain) through regulatory hormones and also provided natural foods and herbs that have been part of ancient medicine. So why add to your existing toxic load when you can incorporate a healthy diet and choose natural remedies for pain relief?
