Pain Relief

9 items

Pain can be complicated. It can be chronic, or short lived.

 

How we treat our pain is very much a personal decision that must take into account these various factors, as well as weighing up any side effects of the treatment, financial costs, and our experience so far with treatments that have worked and not worked for us.

 

We can use herbal and traditional medicines to help relieve pain.

 

Natural methods for sore muscles

 

Muscle pain is rough. From back pain to the neck pain you get from sleeping in an awkward position, it is relatively common.

 

Some natural ingredients can be used as muscle relaxers to alleviate discomfort.

 

You might like to try Phynova Joint & Muscle Relief Tablets which is a traditional herbal medicinal product, specifically designed for the easing of backache, Rheumatic or muscular pains and general aches and pains in the muscles and joints. Based on traditional use only.

 

It is suggested that you take one tablet, twice a day (one in the morning and one at night) and complete a full course (one month) in order to receive optimal results.

 

Another option is Weleda’s Muscular Pain Relief Spray which is a homeopathic medicinal product for the symptomatic relief of muscular strains.

 

It is an oromucosal spray which works from the inside out, to help relieve muscle ache and pains.

 

Containing Arnica, Ruta and Rhus Tox, it is made with organic alcohol and designed to be taken orally, with one or two sprays, up to three times a day.

 

Suitable for anyone over the age of 12, its formula is also vegetarian friendly.

 

Headache and migraine relief

 

There are a lot of at-home actions you can take to deal with migraines and headaches.

 

For headaches, rest or a gentle massage can help.

 

For migraines, dimming the lights and applying a heat pad or a cold pack (or a pack of frozen peas) on the forehead can provide some relief.

 

Feverfew may also help with migraines for some people. It is a herb which is available as a dry leaf capsule at Holland & Barrett.

 

This traditional herbal product can be used to help prevent migraine headaches by taking one capsule daily. Based on traditional use only.

 

How to choose the right pain relief for you

 

If you haven’t already done so, the first step is to work out what is causing you pain.

 

Sometimes, that may be really clear. For example, some are quite straight forward, like a migraine (especially if you have had them most of your life). We often know our body and its triggers and quirks.

 

If you are unsure though, consult your doctor as a first priority.

 

Once you understand what is happening, you can then consider the various treatment options and weigh up what works best for you.

 

Often, physical therapy, exercise, diet changes, and avoiding or preventing certain triggers, will form part of a holistic plan. Medicine may as well.  And, at this stage you can consider which supplements, herbs, and more, are best for the type of pain you are dealing with.

 

Consider the pain category. Is it muscle related, joint related, are you having headaches?

 

Once you understand which body system is affected, you can narrow down your options to those that focus on that particular area.

FAQs
What actually causes pain?

Did you know that there are actually many different types of pain?

 

You feel pain when a signal travels through the nerve fibres to the brain, which then interprets it, in order to respond to it.

 

Pain can be broken down into two different types: acute pain and chronic pain.

 

Acute pain is short, intense pain, which might be caused by an injury or localised tissue damage.

 

Chronic pain, by definition, lasts a long time and there may not be a cure for it.

 

This can vary for mild to severe and can be continuous, such as arthritis, or intermittent such as migraine pain.

What can I take for headaches?

Headaches and migraines can really stop you in your tracks and make it difficult for you to go about your day.

 

Therefore, you need to ensure that they are addressed both quickly and effectively.

 

There are a number of things you can do to help ease the discomfort of a headache including getting some rest, turning off the lights and applying a cold pack to the forehead.

 

You could also take Holland & Barrett Feverfew Migraine Relief which is a herbal medicinal product, used for the prevention of migraine headaches, based on traditional use only.

What can I take for muscle pain?

Muscle pain can be caused by a sports injury, overdoing it when you work out, or even just sleeping in an awkward position.

 

There are some natural products which you can use to help to alleviate muscle pain.

 

Weleda Arnica Massage Balm is a traditional herbal medicinal product which can be used for the symptomatic relief of muscular pain.

 

It contains plant extracts and oils to provide therapeutic comfort.

What can I use for backache?

Backache usually becomes a problem as we get older and we find that we cannot do as much as we used to.

 

Phynova Joint & Muscle Relief Tablets is formulated for the symptomatic relief of backache, as well as minor sports injuries and general aches and pains in the muscles and joints.

How can I choose the right pain relief for me?

Pain and pain relief is personal to everyone and no two people will feel the same sensation.

 

This means that when looking for herbal and traditional medicines for pain relief, you will need to find the solution that works best for you.

 

You should start by seeing a medical professional to find out what is causing your pain and rule out anything that requires more serious intervention. You can then look into the various treatment options that are available and find the one that is best suited to your needs.
