Everyone Experiences Pain, So What is the Most Common Way to Relief Aches, Pains, Migraines & Sore Muscles? Try our 7 Natural Pain Relief Tips Today!
Aches, pains, migraines, sore muscles, just about everyone experiences pain sometimes. What’s the most common way to relief the pain? Most people don’t think twice about curbing pain with pills, be they over-the-counter or prescription. While painkillers may not seem like a big deal, they can, over time, erode health in a variety of insidious ways. Pain killing pills can trigger ulcers, gut distress, and raise blood pressure and can, even at low doses, cause stomach problems, brain fog and intestinal bleeding. Eternal Delight offers a healthier, more holistic, wellness approach to pain management. Here are a few of our favourite natural remedies for less pain and better health.
Regular massage treatments are relaxing and healthy.
Massage: not only relaxes and rejuvenates, but encourages the release of endorphins, (the body’s naturally occurring painkillers) into the bloodstream.
Sauna: A few weekly sessions in an infrared sauna can lead to profound improvements in chronic pain.
Anti-inflammatories: Since pain and inflammation tend to go hand in hand, you can help ease pain by laying off inflammatory foods. Topping the list of pain ‘flamers: sugar, gluten, refined flours, processed foods, and sugary beverages. When it comes to alcohol, the occasional glass of (preferably organic) wine at dinner shouldn’t cause instant agony, but the less alcohol you drink, the better, particularly if you take any medication or have chronic pain, which can be made worse with alcohol withdrawal.
Pain-Tamers: Fresh, whole foods from preferably organic sources will have more of the pain-taming nutrients and compounds in them than pain-inflaming, processed and especially genetically modified foods.
When pain is a frequent problem, what you put on your plate becomes even more important.
Cooling the flames of inflammation with help from sulphur-rich veggies is key: garlic, onions, scallions and chives to dishes, cruciferous veggies like broccoli and cauliflower for an even bigger anti-inflammatory benefit.
The easiest to get your anti-inflammatory dose daily is to make our Natural Anti-Inflammatory Powder your best friend:
Spices: Yet another tasty way to tame pain. You’ll find any number of anti-inflammatory ingredients that can soothe, help reduce swelling, and prevent pain from escalating. One of our favourite mealtime spices containing medicinal benefits is Freshly ground black pepper, adds a real punch of flavour and is also a terrific healing-helper because of its anti-inflammatory benefits. Ginger adds a tasty kick to meals and can help kick migraines out (almost as effectively as the pricey migraine meds that can trigger dizziness and indigestion). Turmeric’s main compound curcumin has been shown to be as effective as pain pills for relieving pain, minus the gut damage medication can bring. Peppermint activates anti-pain colonic pathways, making it helpful for those with IBS. It also interferes with the release of prostaglandins, key contributors to menstrual pain.

Get Moving: For those with chronic or intermittent pain, one more way to diffuse it is with exercise. If you’re really having a tough time of it, a strenuous gym routine may not be feasible, but some type of movement is. Among the easiest places to start is with super-low-impact, slo-mo exercise that gently stretches and strengthens muscles with slow moves and controlled breathing.
