For many people, pain is often a part of their daily lives. Whether it be migraines, back pain, arthritis, or other conditions such as fibromyalgia – many people have come to accept pain as a part of their lives.
Often they seek the care of their physicians and may find some relief with prescriptive or over the counter pain medications. Unfortunately, especially in chronic conditions, this often comes at the cost of unpleasant side effects, dependence and eventually intolerance of the medications, and sometimes even other physical conditions developing from long term use.
I am contacted on a daily basis by individuals who are seeking alternative methods for pain relief. They have usually exhausted the offerings of western medicine or have found them to be beyond what they can afford financially. They are tired. They hurt. They often feel in a rather desperate situation with their quality of life being far less than they would like it to be.
They want to play with their children and grandchildren. They want to get a restful sleep each night. Often they want to be able to go just one day without pain.
The wonderful news is that it is quite possible to live a life that has much less pain, if not pain free, with herbal medicine. And it doesn’t need to cost a fortune in expensive high end supplements. With the changing political climate, I feel it more important than ever for people to reach for the natural medicines the earth provides. And it pretty. much provides something for everything. I could elaborate, however I will refrain and stick to the topic of pain relief.
Some of the best herbs for pain relief are likely things you have right in your own kitchen or can easily get at a health food store. You can use them quite simply as they are or you can purchase products from apothecary’s and herbalists that hand make creations with an intimate knowledge and connection of exactly the right combinations.
One of the best herbs for pain relief both acute and chronic is turmeric. It is a wonderful anti inflammatory and an excellent pain reliever. It also is an overall body tonic which detoxes the liver, improves digestion, and supports a healthy immune system. Turmeric is a very safe herb, with the only big contraindication that it should not be used by people taking blood thinning herbs. This is because it increases circulation and thus can increase bleeding. It can also lower blood sugar, so diabetics that are using medications to lower blood sugar should be aware of this and monitor accordingly.
Sage Moon Apothecary makes a wonderful, easy to use product called Golden Milk Electuary. It is exactly the right blend of turmeric and other herbs that work alongside turmeric to reduce inflammation and pain. It also has the needed fat, in the form of coconut oil, to properly absorb turmeric. There are several blends of Golden Milk Electuary available, to suit different tastes, including Chai with chai spices, and Divine with a bit of richness from the addition of cinnamon, cocoa, and clove. Electuaries are honey based mediums which can be taken as they are, or can be stirred into warm liquid and drunk as a delicious beverage.
Sage Moon Apothecary. has filled close to 3,000 orders since this February of Golden Milk and continue to sell this fabulously helpful product at a rapid pace. Many of our customers report that with regular use they no longer have the need for prescriptive or over the counter anti inflammatories or pain medications. This is especially prevalent for those dealing with arthritis and migraines.
Another product that Sage Moon Apothecary makes is a cold version similar to Golden Milk called Turmeric Ginger Switchel. This is a drinking vinegar, with herbs infused in raw apple cider vinegar and sweetened with raw Maine wildflower honey. The result is a delicious syrup that can be added to water, sparkling water, or really any beverage. Some people even use it on top of noodles and vegetables. It provides the same anti inflammatory and pain relief as the Golden Milk, simply in a different form. Plus you get the benefits of raw apple cider vinegar, of which there are countless including weightless, pain relief, digestive wellness, and immune system boosting.
For those looking for topical relief, Sage Moon Apothecary has several topical products which work wonderfully and have gotten stellar reviews from customers, often that they work far better than anything they. have ever tried – prescriptive or OTC.
Wicked Muscle Salve is a topical salve that also contains turmeric in the form of turmeric essential oil. It also brings in the healing and heating properties of ginger, cayenne, and lemon eucalyptus to provide amazing pain relief. It comes in 2 ounce, 4 ounces, and a convenient 1/2 ounce stick.
Migraine Oil is a massage type oil that combines pain relieving essential oils in an almond and olive oil carrier oil. It also comes in a nut free version that simply uses an olive oil carrier.
Sage Moon Apothecary also carries a line of oil rollers and essential oil inhalers called Synergy, that can help bring relief from pain (and many other conditions), and support one towards greater health and well being.
