Top 10 Natural Pain Killers

Top 10 Natural Pain Killers

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine and founder of In this video I’m going to cover the top ten natural
painkillers to help you get relief fast. And you may be a person out there that’s struggled
with headaches, neck pain, low back pain, herniated discs, torn ACL, shoulder issues
with your rotator cuff, muscle aching, fibromyalgia – any of those issues, any type of joint or
muscle pain or discomfort, you may be seeking the help of natural painkillers. Or maybe
you’ve done the conventional painkillers in the past, and you don’t want the side effects. Well, here are my top ten natural painkillers
you should be using on a regular basis, and I’m telling you, some of these are going to
surprise you, and a lot of these are things you’ve never even thought about before using.
I guarantee one of them is really going to shock and surprise you. Number one is spicy foods. Eating spicy foods
such as cayenne pepper and wasabi and horseradish really improve circulation. Circulation is
key to killing pain, okay. So again, if you want to get rid of pain, we’ve got to increase
circulation in the body, getting you nutrients and blood flow to the area, so doing a little
cayenne pepper in your burger meat or in your hummus or in whatever you’re making is a fantastic
way to naturally relieve pain. And also, you can mix cayenne pepper with some coconut oil
and peppermint oil and mixing those together and actually making your own natural skin
cream or pain-free cream if you want to do something topically. But even internally,
we know that spicy foods can make a big difference. Number two is arnica oil. Arnica oil is something
that you can rub on topically. It’s been shown to actually be transdermal. It will get from
your skin into the joint muscle or tissue area and help reduce inflammation. So again,
if you’re looking to make a topical ointment or cream or gel yourself, arnica oil is a
must have. It’s also the best for bruising. If you bruise in an area, especially if you
have any discoloration, arnica oil will help heal that area very, very quickly. Number three are the super herbs, turmeric
and ginger, two of the most potent, anti-inflammatory herbs on the planet. Turmerics have cocumin,
ginger has gingeralls. These are fantastic compounds found in these herbs. What I recommend
you do is you can just add turmeric and ginger to your recipes, add some ginger to a morning
smoothie, add turmeric, again, to your chicken, a salad, your burger meat, a recipe even like
guacamole, you can add a little turmeric. But just add in turmeric to your recipes. Also, you can take them in capsule form, or
do them as a tea, or juice them! So there’s a lot of different ways to get these herbs.
But turmeric and ginger are powerful anti-inflammatory herbs. And actually, medical studies have
proven that turmeric and ginger are more effective in treating pain than most conventional over-the-counter
medications. Number four thing that can help treat pain,
especially topically, is peppermint and wintergreen essential oils. They contain menthol, or mentha.
It’s a compound that actually helps cool and reduce inflammation in an area, and it specifically
works as an analgesic, numbing areas as well. So again, peppermint oil and wintergreen oil,
what I would do is mix those with some arnica oil. Heck, you can mix it with some cayenne
pepper there as well that we’ve talked about. Make your own muscle or joint cream, rub it
on the area, it’s really going to support the health and reduce pain fast. Number five, magnesium oil or Epsom salts
bath. Magnesium oil is transdermal, gets into your skin. Magnesium is known as the relaxation
mineral. So if you have an area of muscle spasm or tension, magnesium helps calm and
relax the area. So again, using magnesium oil topically on an area is wonderful. As
well, you can also use magnesium oil, or add a cup of Epsom salts to a bath, soak with
those, with some essential oils, and that’s also going to help relieve that muscle pain,
tension, some tendonitis you might have in your various joints. Number six, give yourself a massage with a
foam roller. You can buy a foam roller, or you can even use a lacrosse ball or a tennis
ball, but foam rollers are ideal. Get in those areas, maybe it’s your IT band, maybe it’s
your TFL, maybe it’s your quad, your hamstrings, maybe it’s the area of your shoulder like
you bicep tendon. Get on there, you can buy a foam roller and just roll the area. Typically,
you want to get on an area, sit on there for about one minute, and then roll it for about
a minute. You don’t want to overdo it, because that can actually cause more problems. But
you want to go about a maximum of about two minutes in an area. But foam rolling, and
giving yourself that natural, homemade massage, is a great way to naturally relieve pain. Number seven, drink bone broth. Bone broth
contains collagen, as well as glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid, all the
nutrients you need to help rebuild healthy joints. So if you have any type of joint issue,
whether it’s headaches, low back pain, neck pain, a joint pain of your shoulders, your
elbows, your wrists, your ankles, anywhere, drinking bone broth can help. I recommend
you check out bone broth powder, you can add that to a smoothie, or drinking bone broth
soup on a regular basis. But bone broth is a fantastic way to help naturally relieve
pain. And really, this is long term, you’re not
going to drink bone broth protein one day and it automatically takes you pain away,
versus a peppermint oil, you’ll get more immediate relief. But bone broth over time may have
the biggest impact on helping your joints feel better. Number eight is doing something called regenerative
medicine, and that’s doing prolotherapy, PRP, and stem cell. Now here’s what this is, it’s
called regenerative injections. Prolotherapy is where they go and they inject glucose,
so sugar, into an area and it triggers your body’s healing response. So think about this. When you sprain your
ankle, it swells up, and your body heals itself right? Well, your body might only heal itself
by 75%. So that ligament tissue, it’s been stretched, it’s been damaged, it doesn’t heal
completely. What stem cells, PRP, and prolotherapy do, prolotherapy, you inject sugar into the
tendon that’s damaged, and then your body says, oh, there’s damage there. Well, there
really isn’t damage, there’s just sugar there, but then your body sends healing factors and
growth factors to go heal and repair that tendon again. So it might bring your area
from 75% full recovery up to 80, 90 and eventually 95-98% recovery. Great improvements. Prolotherapy
is what that is. And then there are more advanced forms of
prolotherapy, such as PRP and stem cell. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. And PRP is
where they actually take your blood, they separate the platelets, the growth factors,
from your red blood cells. So you have your growth factors, which is where all of the
healing nutrients are, so it’s essentially drawing your blood, concentrating all of those
reparative compounds, injecting them back into an area, and that’s going to help healing.
So typically, PRP is three times more effective than prolotherapy. And then there’s stem cell therapy. Stem cell
therapy is oftentimes 9-10 times more effective than prolotherapy. And of course, there are
big cost differences. But stem cells, where they take your own . . . and I’m not talking
about other stem cells, I’m talking about taking your body’s own stem cells. They’ll
take your body’s own stem cells and then they’ll reinject them into an area. And your body’s
stem cells can differentiate into any type of tissue. So if you tore your ACL in the past, and maybe
it’s not completely healed, you can actually have them go in with stem cells, and those
stem cells will actually become new ACL tissue, or new labrum tissue in your shoulder, or
new cartilage in your neck. Whatever it is, if you have damage – even if you have a herniated
disk, stem cells can help that as well. So again, stem cells actually become that tissue,
and there’s a company called Regenexx – and you can even look up Dr. Axe Regenexx on Google
– but again, a company called Regenexx, and they actually do PRP and stem cell, the most
advanced forms. But again, these are great. And if you’ve
had these issues for a long time, I’m telling you that stem cell and PRP and prolotherapy
work very effectively, but I really recommend the company Regenexx. I’ve used them personally,
and so has my wife, and again, they just do great work and the most advanced forms of
those therapies. So again, that’s another natural pain killer, especially for severe
issues. Number nine, ART, graston and rolfing. ART
is active release technique. That’s active range of motion massage, and so that’s really
deep tissue massage therapy, getting in with graston, ART, or rolfing, helping break up
scar tissue that’s formed in your fascia and in your muscles. Number ten is chiropractic care and acupuncture.
Chiropractic has been used as one of the top natural pain relievers for years, especially
for spinal issues. If you’ve got neck pain and back pain, I would try chiropractic first,
and then also acupuncture. Acupuncture is great for pain that may be emotionally related,
or due to muscle spasms as well. So again, check out a great chiropractor or acupuncturist. Those are the top ten natural ways that can
treat pain, or the top natural pain killers you may search out. If you want more information

  1. I did not know the wonders of this oil to alleviate the pain that arthritis generates. Thanks for sharing this valuable content, it is very useful for those affected by this pathology.

  2. I have been drinking bone broth for 2 months I still don't have relief from my pain I'm aware it won't help 100%. But i figured at least 20-30% of improvement but nothing so far. ??

  3. stay away from Monteral where drugged mad Natives kick whites for " putting them to the street- and hardly any security on subway stations

  4. Woke up with tense back pain, probably from sleeping wrong and thought it would go away throughout the day and it didn’t.

    So that’s how I came to this video.
    I had some peppermint oil and coconut oil and rubbed that where the pain was and immediately felt a relief.
    Still a little tense but definitely a lot more relieved thank youuuuuu

    Side note: I also had some white willow bark supplements and took one about 30 mins before I did the peppermint oil rub.
