Natural Anti-Inflammatory

Post: # 238383Post chickenchargrill »

The search on here won't let me look for anything already here on the subject. I have a shin splint, hurts a lot. I'm taking paracetamol, ice pack and support. I could do with an anti-inflammatory, but I'm allergic to the NSAIDs like ibuprofen and aspirin.

Any foods/teas etc that might help?

Chicken soup, made from real chicken stock (so homemade probably) .... I found a study on it online and can't find it again, there is something in the chicken bones that is anti-inflammatory

Chicken soup is sometimes referred to as Jewish Penicillin... and the study I found was looking into whether there was anything to it.

Worth a try anyway.

Arnica is the herbal anti-inflammatory, but Bryony, Chamomile, Horseradish, Marigold, and Echinacea can be used. Consult a herbalist

Best natural anti inflammatory herbs
* Turmeric is a great herbal remedy for inflammation, including arthritis, tendonitis & auto-immune disorders. Take 400 to 600 milligrams of turmeric extracts (available in tablets or capsules) three times per day. Whole turmeric is best. It may take two months for good effect so be patient. Oh, curry mixtures usually contain a good amount of turmeric so feel free to have lots of curried dishes if you prefer.

* Ginger is also one of the excellent anti inflammatory herbs. Take one to two capsules (500 to 1,000 mg) twice a day with food. You can also use ginger liberally in foods or make fresh ginger tea. Here too, you will need to be patient for the benefits to show.

* Boswellin is a good natural anti inflammatory remedy especially for conditions like fibromyalgia. The dosage is two capsules twice a day or follow the product label.

* Arnica is a widely used herbal remedy for inflammation in addition to a salve for bruises & sprains. Use as directed.

* Devils claw is dual use: one of the better pain-relieving & anti inflammatory herbs. Devil’s claw is especially useful for arthritis.

* Licorice root is an effective, natural anti-inflammatory herb root. Note that long-term use can raise blood pressure and lead to potassium loss. Dose is one-eighth to one-quarter teaspoon of extract up to three times daily.

* St. John's wort is better known for its antidepressant effect but also an herbal remedy for inflammation. Follow label directions.

* White willow bark is also anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving. Use supplement as directed.
