If you are looking for simple and effective natural treatments for joint pain, continue reading this article and find out what they are. But first.
Joint pain is one of the most common symptoms of rheumatism or arthritis. But what causes this inflammation in the first place? According to best-selling intuitive healer Anthony Williams, the culprit for arthritis-causing joint pain is the Epstein-Barr virus, which feeds on the heavy metal copper in the liver. This copper is a heavy metal different from the helpful plant-derived trace mineral copper. EBV then creates an internal dermatoxin (different from external dermatoxins) leading to the internal inflammation of the joints.
The good news is that you can detox heavy metals from the body, avoid further exposure through a heavy metals detox, and feed the body natural, nourishing foods. Herbal medicine has some pretty amazing natural treatments for joint pain hidden up its sleeves. Below we want to share with you the best natural treatments for joint pain from Eastern Europe that we know of. Let’s get to it.
6 Natural Treatments for Joint Pain
1. Healing Natural Salve for Joint Pain
A simple and useful home remedy for joint pain is this simple natural salve that you can prepare at home. Actually, this is one of the most amazing topical natural treatments for joint pain. Here is how you can make this salve for joint pain at home.
- 200 g of unsalted pork lard (or lanolin)
- one teaspoon of beeswax
- 10 ml of vegetal oil
- 50 ml of cabbage juice
- 10-15 ml of tincture of arnica
- one teaspoon of honey
Preparation & Use
Put the pork lard and beeswax in an enameled pot over low heat to melt down, then add the oil and combine. Heat the fats and wax until at 60°C/140°F. Pour the cabbage juice into a different pot and heat it up to 60°C/140°F, and then add the honey and the arnica tincture and combine well. Pour the melted pork lard and beeswax over the cabbage juice and arnica tincture, then add honey, and mix them together until the composition cools down.
Store the salve in small cream jars and use it in the following 2-3 months. Anoint the sore areas gently with this salve and then wrap a clean gauze around the anointed joints. After about two hours you’ll feel the beneficial effects of this salve. If you have severe pain you can rub the sore areas 2-3 times a day. This is one of the most amazing natural treatments for joint pain.
2. Fenugreek Natural Treatment for Joint Pain
When used topically, fenugreek seeds have anti-inflammatory and analgesic action. Simmer 50 g of fenugreek seeds in 250 ml (1 cup) of water for 5 minutes. Spread the fenugreek seed porridge onto a piece of clean gauze. Apply the poultice hot or cold, over the sore areas. If your skin gets irritated or itchy, remove the poultice immediately. Fenugreek seeds are amongst the best natural treatments for joint pain.
3. Frankincense Poultice for Joint Pain
The anti-inflammatory effects of frankincense powder may help reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis and possibly rheumatoid arthritis. This is why frankincense is an amazing natural medicine, and one of the best natural treatments for joint pain. Combine 30 g of high-quality frankincense powder with 50 g of apple cider vinegar. Soak one piece of wool fabric into the liquid mix and apply it over the sore joints in the evening, for three nights in a row. The complete treatment is 3 days.
Alternately, clay poultices are also amazing for joint pain. Use high-quality clay to make simple poultices and apply them to the sore joint areas. Cabbage leaves also work great for joint aches (see the cabbage juice salve recipe above). Crush the cabbage leaves with a rolling pin and apply them where needed. You can use the clay and cabbage poultice throughout the day and the frankincense powder poultice overnight.
4. Cottage Cheese Remedy for Joint Pain
Cottage cheese helps reduce swollen joints, ameliorates pain, and stops inflammation in joints. This is how to use it. Spread a 1/2 cm thick layer of cottage cheese on a thin cotton towel and cover it with another thin towel. Heat up the poultice at room temperature (you can heat it in sunlight) and apply it to the painful joint. Tie a thick towel around it and keep it in place until the cottage cheese dries completely.
5. Grapes Cure for Joint Pain
Diet is crucial in healing inflammation in the body. In this sense, the grapes stum cure is a miraculous aid. For two weeks drink at least 1,5 liters of unfermented grapes stum instead of water. You can make your own grapes stum by juicing grapes. Make your grapes stum fresh every day. Very Important! While doing this two-week cure, stop eating all animal products, sugar and pastry, food additives, and highly processed foods. This simple cure is one of the most effective natural treatments for joint pain.
6. Herbal Natural Treatments for Joint Pain
One of the most powerful natural treatments for joint pain is the heather plant (Calluna vulgaris). Heather decoction is a simple and natural way to stop rheumatic pain due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties. To prepare this decoction simmer 15-20 grams of dried and minced heather plant in 500 ml (2 cups) of water for 15 minutes. This makes for a cup of tea. Leave the decoction to cool down, strain, and drink one cup a day.
You can also prepare a simple infusion using the heather plant. Pour 300 ml of boiling water over one heaped tablespoon of dried heather (whole plant with flowers too). Steep covered for 20 minutes, strain, and drink it throughout the day. Other amazing teas for joint pain are lavender, peppermint, thyme, jasmine, butterbur, lemon balm, and shepherd’s-purse.
