We are all about natural remedies. Recently, we attended an Autumn flower show to sell the Lorem’s product range as we do on most weekends. A lady stopped in front of the stand where she proceeded to read about the products. When we asked her if she wanted to know anymore, her response laughing was “No it’s ok, I’ll keep taking the steroids”. Her comment made us think that although we are living longer many of us seem to be suffering with a condition or some form of pain and suffering with a poor quality of life.
It seems that these days, we’re looking for that quick fix by popping a pill, applying a topical product or even a steroid injection without being fully aware of the side effects that can occur such as organ damage, stomach upsets, thinning of the skin or taking additional medicine to deal with the side effects that occurred from the original one!
You may find the relief you need from a variety of natural pain killers instead?
Our team at Lorem strongly believe that there are many benefits to using natural remedies…. herbs and spices have been used for thousands of years to treat inflammation and other related conditions known as complementary. There continues to be more research and strong evidence for the benefits of natural therapies. Medical doctors are increasingly turning to natural pain relief and alternatives from acupuncture, yoga, magnetic bracelets and hypnosis to help their patients feel better. The practice of Aromatherapy originated in Europe and has been practised since the early 1900s where essential oils are taken from plant flowers, leaves stalks, bark rind or roots.
Many of us still or previously use natural remedies to ease pain or discomfort from using clove bud in our mouth for toothache, a dock leaf for stinging nettles or a spoon of honey and lemon in hot water to soothe that sore throat. With all the modern day medicines that surround us we may not use this traditional methods as much, however they still work.
We can be sceptical to indigenous medicines from around the world. Emu oil has been used originally for thousands of years by the aborigines of Australia, and that knowledge has been passed down for generations and spread to many other countries. Today the uses for Emu oil are becoming more popular as we look for natural alternatives to assist in treating a variety of skin conditions and provide natural pain relief. The other benefit of massaging emu oil and essential oils into the skin is that massage therapy has been shown to boost levels of endorphins and serotonin the body’s natural pain killers and mood regulators.
There are many natural remedies for providing pain relief and easing discomfort, however there are also lots of reasons why we should also pay attention to what we eat after all food is a sort of medicine. By eating a variety of foods which can provide the body with all vitamins and minerals our body needs to sustain our immune system. Remember, pain is the body’s signal that something is wrong. It may be temporary such as a strained muscle. But pain can also mean that you have a serious health problem that needs professional medical attention!
