Natural painkillers and remedies
More and more people are turning to natural remedies as a means of treating pain, illness and other diseases. Over-the-counter medicines and the like, are still used, but people are looking for long-term solutions and remedies, without the side effects. There are a huge variety of herbs and spices, as well as flower- and essential oil-remedies, that is also available. However, if you have never used any of these before, please consult a health practitioner and/or a natural medicine-practitioner or health shop, before using it. Here are a few of the natural painkillers that you will find in most kitchens in the world.

For those suffering from high blood pressure, black seed oil, bananas, leafy greens, soursop, citrus fruits, garlic, green tea, cinnamon and onions are good options. For pain relief, CBD oil, turmeric, ginger, berries, black seed oil, Boswellia, cayenne, castor oil and carom seeds, can be used.
As we move towards wanting, using and eating organic foods, free range produce and the like, it is also interesting to note that more and more people are moving towards natural remedies. Personally I am not a doctor, however, as someone who grew up on homeopathic medicines and natural remedies like tissue salts, I can attest to the success I had with it. Deciding to use natural remedies, is a personal choice and something that has been around for many, many years. It was used widely by many people all over the world, until Big Pharma came into the picture.
My answer to questions regarding the difference between medical medicine and natural medicine? Medical medicine treats the illness, pain and/or disease, whilst natural medicine treats the origin of the illness, pain and/or disease. Having used it since a very early age, I can only speak for myself when I say that it has cured many of my allergies and didn’t just supress it. Have a look, research and try it out. Just make sure that you are not allergic to any of the above mentioned remedies, before using it and, if you are unsure, speak to a professional.
