If you’re suffering from a headache or muscle pain, your first instinct may be to reach for the “Aspirin” or other over-the-counter pain-relief medication that is a staple in most medicine cabinets. While this may be fine on occasion, if the pain you are suffering from is chronic, taking over-the-counter painkillers may only be a band-aid solution with detrimental side effects.
If you’re regularly using over-the-counter medications to treat your chronic pain, you could be doing more harm than good. The regular use of these over-the-counter pain medications may just have serious long-term effects, such as liver damage or intestinal failure. Prescription medication can also be addictive.
There are a number of alternatives available to alleviate pain and treat the root causes—without the possible side effects of over-the-counter and prescription pain medications. These remedies reduce inflammation and swelling, while improving blood circulation and mobility. As an added bonus, these alternative pain relief solutions also promote relaxation, since stress can often aggravate chronic pain. These remedies can also address the underlying reasons for pain and promote good health.
