An article shared by NBC news* outlines natural supplement products that have proven laboratory results showing reduced pain in many patients. As one who uses some of these supplements, I can attest to their pain relieving properties.
Ginger, turmeric and holy basil along with fish oil are four natural remedies which reduce inflammation in the body. The article shares acclaim for these herbs by saying "some experts are already sold: "Each herb has its own scientific database of evidence," says James Dillard, MD, author of "The Chronic Pain Solution."
Capsaicin is another product used in cremes which is very effective for some arthritis sufferers. I personally have tried a variety of products using this red pepper supplement and it has only caused me more pain. I have neurological pain too, so this may be a contributing factor, I don't know for sure. But it may be worth a try for those suffering from RA or OA.
Homeopathic Arnica, part of the daisy family, is another herb used to reduce swelling and pain post-surgery. In tablet or ointment form, this ingredient comes from a European flower. Auqamin, a red seaweed supplement high in calcium and magnesium, helps to reduce joint inflammation.
