Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug used for relieving pain, inflammation and helps coping with fever. Some of the serious health effects of using ibuprofen in the long run include DNA structure damage, hearing loss, high blood pressure, miscarriage, etc. Natural alternatives to ibuprofen could be very helpful in treating conditions, without the health hazard associated with the intake of synthetic drugs.

Natural Pain-Killers:

White Willow Bark: White willow bark is much less irritating to the stomach than the synthetic drug .It is effective in relieving pain, inflammation and fever.

Boswellia: Boswellia is available as a supplement and a topical cream. It contains anti-inflammatory properties which come from the Boswellic acids extracted from the tree.

Cat’s claw: Also known as Uncaria Tomentosa, cat’s claw grows in South America and is known for containing an anti-inflammatory agent that aids in blocking the production of the hormone prostaglandin.

Curcumin: This herb is known for centuries for its antioxidant, anti-fungal, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.

Capsaicin: A active component of chili peppers, capsaicin is often used topically to relieve nerve, muscle, and joint pain.

Holy Basil: When it comes to inflammation, Holy Basil can be as effective as ibuprofen.

Sandalwood oil: This oil is especially helpful in cases of muscle spasms.

Devil’s Claw: Devil’s claw is very effective against inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and muscle pain.

Omega-3 fatty acids: The omega-3 fatty acids are known to have anti-inflammatory properties proven to be beneficial for people who suffer with arthritis, other inflammatory joint conditions and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Olive oil: Olive oil has strong anti-inflammatory properties that can be compared to those found in ibuprofen.

John’s wort: St. John’s wort is much more effective than ibuprofen when it is used as a painkiller.

@CureJoy Here's another example of the sign up page covering the article so no one can read it. I tried 3 times to read the article and each time the sign up page popped up and made it impossible to read. Not good!

Castor oil was used as a laxative. I do think constipation causes headaches. Once the system is cleared, the headache goes away.

Years ago castor oil was taken for headaches because it was thought headaches were linked to constipation. Anyone else hear of this? Any thoughts?
