Natural Strategies for Pain Relief — Number 6 Surprised Me!

Most of us don’t think twice about popping an aspirin or ibuprofen if we’re in pain. But what happens when that pain is chronic? Medical doctors are prescribing natural remedies more and more often, especially when their patients’ pain isn’t short lived. Here are six unique, all-natural ways to make yourself feel more comfortable without medication.

1) Tiger Balm


Tiger Balm is an herbal pain relieving rub that’s been touted for centuries as a natural cure for sore muscles and joints. The hot/cool sensation it creates stimulates blood circulation and encourages joint flexibility, so it’s especially useful before or after exercise. It’s even been said to ease headache pain and brain fog. To ease stress, try rubbing in on your temples or the back of your neck. A little goes a long way with this stuff!
