natural painkillers

9. Ginger for muscle pain

Ginger contains a compound called gingerol, which are known to prevent the production of pain triggering hormones.

Danish researchers found that those who incorporated at least one teaspoon of dried ginger (or two teaspoons of chopped ginger) daily experienced up to 63% reduction in joint pain, muscle pain, swelling, and stiffness in just two months.

10. Clove for toothaches

Clove contains a compound called eugenol, which is a powerful natural anesthetic.


If you find you have a toothache and are unable to make it to the dentist, chew (gently) on a whole clove to relieve tooth pain and reduce gum inflammation for around two hours straight.

11. Apple Cider Vinegar for heartburn

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is amazing and its uses are quite literally countless, but did you know ACV can replace your heartburn medication?

Add one tablespoon of ACV to eight ounces of water and sip the mixture down before every meal, and your heartburn could be gone in as little as 24 hours.
