7 Pain Solutions
Dr. Oz did an online poll to get an idea how prevalent pain is our society. 60 percent of the people who participated in the poll said that they experience pain 7 days a week! The most common forms of pain experienced by the participants was neck and back pain. Fortunately, Dr. Oz had a few remedies to help relieve those awful aches and pains in a natural way!
What Causes Back Pain?
Dr. Oz performed a demonstration to demonstrate what causes back pain for many people. He showed an illustration that gave a visual explanation of how our nerves are pushed, stretched, and pulled around our spinal column. For many people their nerves become inflamed and the pain can cause back and neck pain. You can even experience pain that stretches down into your legs.
Vitamin B12 Helps Reduce Backaches and Pain
Who knew that Vitamin B12 could help to reduce back pain? I sure didn’t. Dr. Oz said that Vitamin B12 helps to coat and soothe your nerves and helps to keep them from becoming inflamed. Dr. Oz suggested taking 1 milligram of Vitamin B12 each day.
Capsaicin Sprays and Creams For Neck Pain Relief
Capsaicin cream is a topical ointment that is an all natural and effective treatment for neck pain. Dr. Oz said that capsaicin is the ingredient that is in peppers that make them hot! When you apply the cream you will feel a warm, tingling sensation. It will even have a little sting to it but it won’t be painful. The capsaicin cream soothes the nerve fibers which will reduce the pain that you feel. Dr. Oz suggested that you apply capsaicin cream to try it out first thing in the morning.
Capsaicin Spray also has another useful benefit. Capsaicin spray can help to cure your headache. This all natural remedy acts as a decongestant as well.
Boswellia Extract Relieves Joint Pain
Dr. Oz talked to an audience member about the pain in her knee that she experiences. He said the pain starts out in the knees and radiates all the way to her hips. Dr. Oz said that this happens to many people as they get older. The “cushion” in the knee (the meniscus) shrinks over time. This creates friction in the joints and causes pain.
Boswellia extract is an effective treatment for joint pain because it reduces inflammation and friction in the joints.
