FMTV - Using Natural Remedies For Pain & Inflammation

Using Natural Remedies For Pain & Inflammation

Series: Food As Medicine TV: Season 2 | Episode: 8 | Runtime: 07m 54s | Release date: 2018

As a society, we often reach for the medicine cabinet for quick relief from pain. It is important to find an alternative to the consistent use of over-the-counter medications, as research is starting to show the negative long-term side effects these treatments can have on our body. These includes digestive damage and leaky gut, liver failure, neurological impairment, and an increased risk of heart attack or stroke.

Turning to holistic and herbal medicine can be a great natural alternative to these over-the-counter medications. Using holistic medicine not only reduces localized or acute pain and inflammation but also helps in supporting the root cause of the issue! Before reaching into your medicine cabinet, try one or more of our recommendations.

Hi Sarah, perhaps you can use Turmeric, has been known to reduce inflammation, pain, and stiff joints. Turmeric can be taken orally as a supplement or incorporated into your diet via cooking, juicing, or golden milk lattes or Arnica Montana (gel or spray). It can be used topically or taken orally. Arnica gels are great to rub on knees and joints when there is pain or swelling. I hope this somehow helps ~ Ivory :)

Shame to add in the bone broth here, all the rest is super informative. No need to be kind to ourselves if we can not be kind to the planet and contributing to global warming with bone broth. Far more other effective anti-inflammatory foods/drinks to have than to advocate bone broth. Looking forward to your season 2. thank you
