Natural Pain Relief

By Donna Wormser

Natural Pain ReliefLet me share a few natural painkillers that really work for you…..Yes, at my age and life style pain is part of living but I would like to share for JOINT PAIN season your food with turmeric.  This powerful spice is on par with over the counter and prescription painkillers!!!  Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, soaks into damaged joint tissues, where it shuts down the pain and inflammation triggering COX-2 enzyme says Robin Miller, M.D.  There are many other great benefits of Turmeric that you can find on the internet.

TIGHT MUSCLES, take MSM.  This is another non-prescription item that truly works….Taking up to 3,000 mg of the natural sulfur compound methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) daily revs blood flow to muscles and calms inflammation, easing muscle soreness by up to 82 percent according to doctors at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.  It is great for sore race horses and is also great for humans!!!

HEADACHY? Sip peppermint tea.  Barometric flux can trigger headaches, but studies at the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago show that inhaling the scent of peppermint can ease pain in 10 minutes.  Credit its menthol, which blocks pain signals from scalp nerves.  For a sweet way to get the benefits, sip iced peppermint tea, which also soothes stress.  To make a pitcher, pour 2 cups of boiling water over 4 peppermint tea bags or several fresh sprigs and steep 6 minutes.  Stir in 1/4 cup of honey, the juice of a lemon and 2 cups of cold water.  Pour over ice and enjoy..

STIFF KNEES, rub on sesame oil twice daily .  British Researchers say the plant extract is rich in compounds that lower the production of pain causing inflammatory proteins called cytokines and speed healing of damaged tissues.  Since there is relatively little muscle and fat covering the knees, sesame oil can easily soak into inflamed tissues, soothing pain in just one week!!!!!!!!!!!!

Turmeric Juice

Turmeric JuiceTurmeric is known to be one of the most powerful healing herbs. It is great for bones and joints as it has anti-inflammatory properties. It prevents metastases from occurring in many different forms of cancer. 

Turmeric’s also a natural liver detoxifier and a kidney cleanser, and it speeds metabolism and aids in weight management. Plus it heals and alleviates conditions of depression, psoriasis, damaged skin, arthritis and more. 

For these reasons, turmeric is ubiquitous both in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started: 

__________________________________________________________________________

     INGREDIENTS

  • 5-7 inches turmeric 
  • 5-7 tamarind
  • 2 lemons
  • raw honey
  • water
  • blender
  • strainer
  • bowl
  • mason jar(s) or other glass jar with lid

__________________________________________________________________________

1. Peel turmeric. Your fingers will turn yellow. Don’t worry! All-natural dish soap gets it right out. If your cutting board or countertop get stained, slather on dish soap and rub it in. Let it soak in for 5 min or longer, and then scrub with water and sponge. The turmeric stain will vanish!

2. Crack and open tamarind. Make sure you get all the inner roots off, too. We’re only going to use the inner fruit.

3. Fill a big pot with water, put peeled turmeric in and let it boil for at least 20 minutes until the water becomes a rich and vibrant marigold color.

4. While the turmeric water is boiling, get a pan and pour 1 inch of water in with the peeled tamarind. Move the fruit around with a wooden utensil, mix it in with the water so it can melt and dissolve into a jam like texture. More water shouldn’t be needed, but if it’s look in’ a bit dry, pour water in as needed.

By this time, you should be able to see the little seeds coming out. When the texture looks soft, turn heat off and let it cool down.

5. Go back to the turmeric water. By now, the color should look ready. Pour a little bit of cold water to lower the temperature. Take the turmeric water and pour it into the blender with the turmeric. We boiled it so the root could soften and have more flavor, now it’s ready to buzz in the blender for even more flavor and richness! Blend, blend, blend. The color now should look like an extra extra fiery marigold.

6. Go back to the tamarind in the pan. Pour substance into the strainer that is placed on top of a small bowl to catch the tamarind. Swish the jam like substance around in the strainer with the wooden utensil– we only want to use the soft bits of the fruit. No seeds, no seed peels.

7. Pour the tamarind that has been caught in the bowl into the blender with the turmeric water. Buzz it around again.

8. We’re almost done. Squeeze your lemons into the blender. Now take the blender and pour your yummy juice into your mason jar(s). Add honey to taste, close with lid, shake it up to mix.

9. Store in fridge up to 3-4 days and drink daily!
