NIX PAIN NATURALLY!
Fight chronic discomfort with these winning at-home remedies
Kristina Mastrocola

Living with pain can make the simplest tasks or most enjoyable activities feel impossible. Pain is different for everyone, but these natural remedies may help alleviate it for you.

GET COMFY WITH SOME COMFREY

Battling back pain? “In most cases, backaches are caused by muscle aches that are sometimes aggravated by arthritis,” says Dr Jacob Teitelbaum, internist and author of The Fatigue And Fibromyalgia Solution (Avery Publishing, $27.99).

If that combination sounds like the source of your woes, try using the herb comfrey topically. Creams are available from health food shops and pharmacies.

“Applying it to your back is like making your muscles sigh a relieving ‘Ahh’,” says Dr Teitelbaum. “The cream works on back pain by lowering inflammation. It can even accelerate the healing of broken bones.”
