Okay, so your knee hurts a bit – what can you do? For starters you can try tumeric and ginger tea. Both of these herbs are anti-inflammatories that can offer some relief for joint inflammation inlcuding that caused by osteoarthritis. Try two cups of boiling water, half teaspoons of ground tumeric and ground ginger and honey to taste. Simmer the tumeric and ginger in the hot water for ten minutes, strain, add the honey and drink it twice a day. Other herbs good for pain caused by inflammation include frankincense, dandelion leaves, juniper berries (which includes gin) and white willow – the ancient source of the salicylic acid now found in aspirin.
What about Epsom Salt? The magnesium sulphate that forms epsom salt is important for joint and bone health. Soaking your painful joints in a bath with two cups of epsom salts for at least fifteen minutes and see if you get some relief. Don’t have time for a bath? Take magnesium supplements instead. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals the body needs, it helps with our heart beat, bone strength and muscle relaxation.
Even rubbing extra virgin olive oil on your joints can help, but make sure it is cold pressed. Thanks to the chemical compound oleocanthal found in extra virgin olive oil, one and a half tablespoons of the ‘good oil’ can match the pain relief of a 200-mg ibuprofen capsule.
And then there’s Blackstrap Molasses. Full of calcium, potassium and magnesium – blackstrap has been used to treat arthrtitic pain and inflamation for centuries. All you need is a cup of warm water, a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses and a vigorous stir. Drink once a day.
