4. Olive Oil

Olive oil can be used a great massage oil. Heat a bit of olive oil in the microwave or stove, then add a few drops of lavender oil and mix well. Once this oil mixture has cooled, you can use it to massage the affected joints. Olive oil helps to prevent the production of pro-inflammatory COX-1 and Cox-2 enzymes, which trigger inflammation in the body.

 

5.  Honey with Cinnamon

This almost sounds like the beginning of a nice cookie recipe, but this combination is actually a great way to help relax the stiff muscles surrounding the joints. Honey is a natural antiseptic and cinnamon is a powerful anti-inflammatory and has strong antioxidant compounds. Mix a half a teaspoon of cinnamon with one tablespoon of raw, organic honey. Eat this every morning on an empty stomach for two or three weeks. You should see encouraging results after this short period of time.

 

6. Apple Cider Vinegar

You might have heard a lot of talk lately about the healing powers of apple cider vinegar. Everything you heard is probably true. Apple cider vinegar is known to have alkaline forming compounds that reduce joint stiffness. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory substance.

First, mix a tablespoon of such vinegar, preferably organic, and a teaspoon of honey in a glass of warm water and drink this every morning on an empty stomach.

Next, you can mix half of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper with warm apple cider vinegar. Soak a cloth in this solution and apply it to the affected joint until it cools (takes about a quarter of an hour), and then wash it off. Repeat these two procedures every day until you get the desired results.

    I’m a huge advocate of natural healing and can praise numerous methods that have helped me over the years. Majority of my pain and stiffness lie in my lower back. I have scoliosis, which unfortunately is only corrected by surgery (which i’m not willing to do at this point). However, to keep the pain at bay without using medication, I use either a cold compress or a wrap called the BFST. After i do any exercises that cause a tweak in my back, I put a cold compress on it. Cold is by far the number one best natural remedy for pain! On days where I am not active (no chance of inflammation) and my lower back gets stiff and sore from tight muscles/ligaments etc., i use the BFST (blood flow stimulation therapy). This is a natural way to stimulate more blood flow to the targeted area. In most cases it will help heal any soft tissue damage (via the nutrients and oxygen the blood carries). It has done wonders for me and allows me to be med free 🙂 I’ve attached the info from what i use. http://www.kingbrand.com/Back-Home.php?REF=46PV121.271
