Natural Pain Remedies!

I love finding new ways to use the foods and items already in our kitchen to help prevent and relieve pain and sickness.  I received this link in an email from my dad a few weeks back and LOVE some of these ideas...go check out all 20 Natural Pain Remedies for yourself.  I thought I'd just highlight a few of my favorites:

"Place two drops of warm garlic oil into your aching ear twice daily for five days. This simple treatment can clear up ear infections faster than prescription meds, say experts at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine."

"The salt in the mix naturally nixes inflammation, plus it’s anti-bacterial, so it quickly destroys the germs that cause swelling and pain. Just mix 1 teaspoon of salt into each cup of water, heat to the warmest temperature that you can comfortably stand, and then soak the affected foot area for 20 minutes twice daily, until your infection subsides."

"The compounds that give cherries their brilliant red color, are anti-inflammatories 10 times stronger than ibuprofen and aspirin. “Anthocyanins help shut down the powerful enzymes that kick-start tissue inflammation, so they can prevent, as well as treat, many different kinds of pain,” explains Muraleedharan Nair, Ph.D., professor of food science at Michigan State University. His advice: Enjoy 20 cherries (fresh, frozen or dried) daily, then continue until your pain disappears."

Be sure and check out all the other great natural remedies and let me know your thoughts!
