Chronic pain: the 7 natural anti-inflammatory and painkillers

To help soothe chronic, often joint pain, try these pain relievers from Mother Nature:

Ginger :

this spice is anti-inflammatory, relieves pain and has a soothing effect on the stomach. Fresh ginger works well steeped in boiling water like tea, or grated in vegetable juice.

Curcumin: Curcumin is the main therapeutic compound identified in turmeric. In a study of arthritis patients, those who added 200 mg of turmeric daily to their treatment saw their pain reduced and their mobility increased. Curcumin has in fact been shown by over 50 clinical studies to have potent anti-inflammatory activity.


boswellia, or boswellia serrata, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that have been prized for thousands of years. This plant can give very good results for many patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.


this protein-digesting enzyme found in pineapples is a natural anti-inflammatory. It can be taken in supplement form, but eating fresh pineapple can also be beneficial. Know that bromelain is mostly found in the heart of the pineapple, so you can leave out some pulp when you consume the fruit.

Cetyl myristoleate (CMO):

this oil, found in fresh fish and butter, acts as a “joint lubricant” and anti-inflammatory.

Evening primrose, blackcurrant and borage oil:

they contain gamma-linolenic fatty acids (GLA), which are helpful in treating arthritis pain.

Cayenne Cream:

also called capsaicin cream, this spice is obtained from dehydrated hot peppers. It reduces pain by depleting the body’s supply of substance P, a component of nerve cells that transmits the pain signal to the brain.
