Natural Remedies for Everyday Pains

Aching muscles, tender joints, upset stomachs, and pounding headaches – these are all fairly common ailments that people deal with in life. Whether you’ve over-exerted yourself at the gym leading to micro-tears in your muscles, or eaten something that doesn’t quite agree with you, these things aren’t serious or life-threatening but they can be incredibly uncomfortable. A lot of people choose to turn to over the counter pain medications like Aspirin or Tylenol to treat these common pains, but there are natural remedies you can try, too. If you’re looking for a more holistic approach to managing your everyday pains, try some of the things listed below.


CBD products have sky-rocketed in recent years, but medicinal marijuana has been used for centuries all over the world. If you’re worried about the effects of CBD products getting you high, you shouldn’t be. Unless specified, CBD products aren’t made with the THC compound found in cannabis, which is what causes the sensation of being high. Instead, CBD products have been used to treat mild to chronic pain due to its anti-inflammatory nature, and they have even been used to help people with anxiety and depression, too.

Peppermint tea works wonders for an upset stomach. It helps with digestion and it’s recommended that you should drink a cup after each meal. The next time you’re feeling nauseous or bloated, drink some of this refreshing tea and notice how within half an hour you begin to feel much more comfortable. Peppermint oil is also said to ease headaches if diluted and lightly applied to the forehead. It contains menthol which helps to relax the muscles and ease the pain and tension you’re feeling. 


Turmeric can be found in most kitchens, it’s a brightly colored spice that adds a tasty flavor and aroma (as well as a vibrant yellow color) to many dishes. While it’s wonderful to use for cooking, turmeric is also a wonderful, natural anti-inflammatory that can help with your aching joints and muscles. It’s because of the active compound curcumin that is in turmeric that gives it its healing qualities. You can purchase turmeric capsules in most health-food and holistic living stores.


Ginger is yet another natural anti-inflammatory and can help with a variety of issues. Some studies have suggested that ginger can help with rheumatoid arthritis when consumed regularly, but it is also said that this root can aid with nausea and ease the symptoms of the common cold. You can add ginger to your food or drink ginger tea – why not try it next time you’re feeling under the weather and see if it can make a difference?

Clove Oil

Cloves have often been used to treat toothache, which is one of the more uncomfortable common pains to have. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anesthetic properties which makes it ideal for pain relief. Again, you can find clove oil and other clove-based products in most holistic stores, or ask your local pharmacist if they have anything in store.

When you’re in pain or feeling under the weather the first thing you want is some relief – why not try some of these natural remedies next time to see how they can help.
