7. Valerian

You might know this as a tea used to help you sleep, but the same compounds that make you sleepy will also give you natural pain relief due to their ability to calm the nervous system. Valerian can not only relive insomnia, feelings of anxiety, tension, but it also reduces nerve sensitivity. Valerian is most often consumed as a tea, but it can also be taken as a supplement.

 

8. Birch Leaf

Birch tree leaves (betula lenta) work in much the same way that cortisone does. This means that it can treat problems such as lupus, skin diseases, autoimmune disorders, endocrine problems, and many more. Birch leaves contain methyl salicylate, which is similar to the salicylic acid found in aspirin. Birch leaves contain anti-spasmodic, antifungal, analgesic, detoxifying, and astringent compounds. These leaves can limit the oxidative damage that causes skin wrinkles, and it improves circulation.

White willow bark has been used since at least 500 B.C. in China, and it is well-known for helping stop back pain, nerve pain, and osteoarthritis pain.
