Aug 29, 2008
It can be difficult to enjoy your day when you suffer from an array of different aches and pains. Thank goodness for most of us it is just an irrigation now and then such as a headache or a mild injury that takes a few days to heal. For those that suffer from chronic aches and pains though it is a completely different story. Imagine trying to work, take care of a family, and have some relaxation when you hurt all the time.

It can even be difficult to concentrate on tasks or to get a good night of rest. Most people that do suffer from such aches and pains do want to get back to enjoying their life. Yet it can be hard when finding the right medication isn't always possible. In many instances the cost of the medication of the severity of the side effects prevent a person from being able to use them anyway.

There is a better alternative though than just coping with the pain. There are quite a few herbal remedies that have been used for centuries to get rid of such aches and pains. This type of alternative medicine is affordable and it doesn't offer any negative side effects for you to fight off. Finding out what is available for your particular aches and pains is important. That way you can fight it instead of continuing to suffer like you are right now.

Arthritis is a very common type of ache and pain that people of all ages including children suffer from. Many believe it is just a problem for the elderly but that isn't true. Arthritis causes the joints to become inflamed so very simple tasks can be painful enough that you can't accomplish them. Consuming green tea offers plenty of benefits for your body.

It can also fight of arthritis because it is able to remove toxins from your body. It also helps to reduce the inflammation so that you aren't in as much pain as before. You can drink green tea hot or cold. You can also take pill supplements if you don't like the taste of it.

Many individuals find that consuming goji berries or juice daily also helps significantly in the battle against arthritis. They are expensive though as they have to be imported. It also takes special care to harvest the berries from the goji trees. The juice is more affordable and you can get it all year long. You can find it at most health food stores or you can order it online. Make sure it is 100% goji juice though as many of the products out there aren't.

Chronic back pain is another issue that many people have to deal with. It can make it impossible to maintain employment as well. Forms of alternative medicine including acupuncture though can help to reduce or even eliminate the pain that has been there. Regular scheduled appointments may be needed to keep the pain away but it is certainly a better option than expensive painkillers that you can become dependent upon.
