Nature’s Pain Reliever

curcumaMother Nature has provided some pretty good pain relievers for us.  PS this doesn’t include ibuprofen, naproxen or other stronger prescription pain relievers.  I will say before I start to always remember that acupuncture is a pretty powerful pain reliever. But…between appointments if you need to reach for a pain reliever, try reaching for a natural one first before you grab synthetic medication.

One of the best formulas that I have for you is CURCUMA NF-kB MYALGIA.

These are capsules filled with liquid gold if you ask me. Let me just break it down for you and maybe just maybe I’ll convince you to give it a shot before you reach for Advil or Aleve.

Turmeric & Black Pepper

This is the foundation of the formula. Black pepper is there to aid and increase absorption of the entire formula, but specifically it helps to liberate the curcuminoids from the turmeric. Turmeric helps with more than just pain though. Check out these benefits just from the turmeric in this blend.

Fights Inflammation

A Strong Antioxidant to fight damaging free radicals

Pain, Osteoarthritis: studies show it has worked as well as ibuprofen in knee osteoarthritis

Crosses the Blood Brain Barrier.  This allows it to help clear amyloid plaques (protein tangles) from the brain that are associated with Alzheimer’s. Studies also show that it helps to repair stem cells in the brain which could potentially help recovery with strokes and Alzheimer’s.

Cancer: Current studies being conducted are finding that it helps fight angiogenesis (the tumors blood supply) and metastasis in cancer.

Jamaica Dogwood Bark

The University of Maryland cites that bark extracts are anti-inflammatory, sedative, and anti-spasmodic.  It typically is used to treat…


Nerve Pain


Nervous Tension

Menstrual Period Pain

Devils Claw

Traditional uses include arthritis, gout, muscle pain, back pain, tendonitis, gastrointestinal upset, and migraines.  In Europe this herb is a popular general pain reliever.

The University of Maryland states that studies support it’s effectiveness in treating osteoarthritis, back and neck pain.

Feverfew & Wild Lettuce

This herb combo has traditionally been used for migraines and nerve pain.  Feverfew is specifically used for migraines, arthritis and general pain.  Wild Lettuce is an anti-spasmodic and has analgesic effects and is used for muscle cramps, arthritis, joint pain and menstrual period pain.

These cover a pretty wide range of pain relief. The bonus here is that turmeric is being heavily studied right now in the medical community and it’s coming up roses.  So while you might be taking this formula for pain, you’ll be reaping all of the other benefits that turmeric can provide.

Just as a personal note here, I can tell you that this formula is working well for patients who are dealing with arthritis, degenerative joint pain, and autoimmune related inflammatory pain.

I think it definitely deserves a spot in your medicine cabinet.

Just one caution here.  Devils Claw and Jamaica Dogwood Bark, in Chinese terms, have blood moving properties, which is why they work so well to relieve pain.  However, these types of herbs should not be mixed with anticoagulants.  So, patients currently taking Coumadin or similar blood thinners should  use with extreme caution or avoid this formula.
