Natural Remedies for Chronic Pain

Medical and recreational cannabis is all the rage today and for good reason. When it come to treating and managing chronic pain cannabis is considered one of the most effective herbal remedies available.

Sadly, cannabis is still not available to many people in the US and other countries due to its status as an illegal drug. So, if you live in an area where cannabis is not available or legal to use, what natural cure alternatives do you have? Here are 4 of my favorite herbal remedies to help with pain, naturally:

Fever Few

A medicinal plant traditionally used for the treatment of fevers, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, stomach aches, toothaches, insect bites, infertility, and problems with menstruation and labor during childbirth.

 

Arnica

Arnica is applied to the skin for pain and swelling associated with bruises, aches, and sprains. It is also applied to the skin for insect bites, arthritis, muscle and cartilage pain, chapped lips, and acne.

 

CA Poppy

Mostly used for nerve pain, various psychiatric conditions, blood vessel problems, sensitivity to weather changes, and sedation.

Also for long term mental and physical tiredness.

 

Kava Kava

Kava Kava for tension headaches and neuropathic pain

How Acupuncture Can Help Your Chronic Pain

Today I have such a treat! My friend, amazing vegan and acupuncturist / Chinese medicine man Raul Ramirez is here to show you how acupuncture can help reduce tension and chronic pain in your back, shoulders, pretty much everywhere you hurt!

I’ve been using acupuncture for well over a decade, to help with everything from balancing hormones, reduce pain and anxiety, heal and reduce inflammation.

Acupuncture is a science that’s been around for thousands of years. It comes from China and it is often part of what we know as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which includes herbal remedies, diet and other therapies to restore balance and help the body heal.

On this video, instead of needles, Raul will use known as “cups” to help bring circulation into the areas of my body who are in spasm and sore from workouts and bad posture.

Can’t wait for you to check out the video!
