Treatment of chronic pain varies from natural therapies to dietary changes and support. Acupuncture is used by many individuals to relieve chronic pain; however, many natural supplements are just as effective for treating the issues. Supplying the body with appropriate nutrients and maintaining an active life can eliminate pain and regulate pain related issues.
What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is a blanket term used to describe pain that persists three to six months after recovery from the initial pain-causing health condition. This type of pain is generally place in two categories: neuropathic (nervous system and structures) and nociceptive (deep tissue and organ). Common symptoms include tingling, burning, aching and throbbing in any area of the body.
Natural Pain Relievers for Joint Pain, Fibromyalgia Pain, and Chronic Back Pain
Treatment of different types of chronic pain varies; however, natural supplements are typically effective for treating many different ailments. Natural treatments include activated charcoal, apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses are particularly effective for relieving pain. Additional treatment options include undergoing acupuncture, avoiding artificial sweeteners and soaking in Epsom salt baths.
Activated charcoal contains a unique toxin-trapping composition. Activated charcoal is created by heating common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop an abundance of internal spaces or pores. When ingested, these pores trap toxins and other chemicals and remove them from the body, which aids in the elimination of chronic pain.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Both of these properties of apple cider vinegar allow it to function effectively in eliminating pain. Apple cider vinegar also delivers a variety of vitamins and minerals to the body that support overall health and wellness.
Blackstrap molasses aids in treating pain in a variety of ways. With a number of nutrients, including iron, magnesium and potassium, blackstrap molasses natural relieves issues associated with nutrient deficiencies. Blackstrap molasses is also an effective weight loss supplement that may aid in relieving weight-related inflammation and other health issues.
Chronic pain is the result of a variety of health issues. Nonetheless, the condition can be treated effectively using a variety of natural methods.

Remedies for Pain Treatment
I had a miscarriage and inflamation developed in my uterus as a result. I was unable to stand or walk for mor than 10 minutes. The pain in my lower back and pelvic area was excrutiating. I used 1 tbs of charcoal in a glass of warm water every morining and night for 10 days. The inflamation and the pain were gone by the end of the program.
Acupressure Mat use the principles of acupressure to help relieve stress, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic back or neck pain, while at the same time increasing relaxation and an overall sense of well-being.
The acupressure mat works by applying non-penetrative acupressure on numerous points over an area of the body. The pressure stimulates the release of endorphins and oxytocin, the body's natural pain relieving and 'feel-good' hormones.
Using the acupressure mat for just 20 minutes each day promotes relaxation, increased energy levels, and an improved sense of well being.

I have found acupuncture very helpful. Several years ago, I had pain, both sharp and dull, bloating, indigestion, etc, for many months. After treatment for about a month, all gone! Recently they flared up and I'm returning to treatment again. If possible, find a practitioner trained in the classical Chinese medicine, not TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine, a misnomer, since it was developed after the Revolution, in the 1950s).

I have been using ACV in a tonic called Jogging in a Jug and literally within 24 hrs my knee, hip and shoulder pain have completely disappeared! I have been struggling with my shoulder pain for 12 yrs due to a car accident and my knee and hip pain for the last 2 yrs. What a miracle. I have told everyone I know about this tonic and they are all giving it a try!
Here is the recipe:
1 c organic ACV
1 c organic white grape juice
2 c organic apple juice
Mix all together. Take 1-2 oz daily before a meal. Keep refrigerated.
I didn't care for the tast at first, but now I love it. I had to plug my nose for the few days but now I can drink it just fine. My energy levels are back and I am sleeping more soundly at night. I love this stuff!!

I am quite amazed. I have been taking Turmeric for umpteen years but now that an old injury started to cause bad pain from hip to ankle and did not go away, I found a very tasty drink which made it disappear. I had to repeat it about three days after the first drink. It is so good tasting and healthy --- so here it is:
- 3" piece root of ginger or 2 tblsp. powder.
- The root can be juiced or slices simmered for short time in a very small amount of water.
- 4" piece of turmeric root OR 2 tsp. powder.
- Juice of 3 lemons, organic if possible and utilize the skin for other uses.
- dash cayenne
- 4 cups coconut water. Watch what quality
- Raw honey to taste, not heated but warmed in a small glass inside a pot with warm water off the heat.
Store in fridge up to three days.
This is a refreshing drink. But any similar drink with turmeric will be good, too.
MahaNarayan oil on alternative days will also help a great deal for treatment of pain.

Hi Earth Clinic, WOW what a fab site, my work mate told me about you as she had very painful hip and knee, she was in so much pain that I said to her perhaps you should go to the hospital... No joy there, x-rays and pain killers but nothing happened she was still in pain and this was after a couple of weeks, so she investigated some web-sites and yours came up, she had a good read through and found that Apple Cider Vinegar would do the trick... What has she to lose........... PAIN, after rubbing apple cider vinegar and honey on her hip and knee she was very surprised that the pain she had has gone to a very mild ache, and her skin is very smooth........... I am very interested in the natural healing, and am on your web-site quite a lot, thank you for such an easy site to find your allments. Keep up the good work. Kim

I tried ACV and honey (2 tsp each) in water, 2X a day for joint and muscle pain. The first day it helped my knee and ankle pain almost immediately. On the fourth night I felt poisoned---hips, knees and ankle joints VERY painful, stomach bloated; limbs, face, lips tinglling. Is this cleansing, and should I continue or not? I am very disappointed as I was so hopeful.

As everyone should be I was very skeptical when I read of all the cures acheived with ACV. I started out looking for relief for my partners enlarged prostate. When I kept looking at all the things ACV could do, I said what the heck and tryed it along with him. Well let me just say that I feel like a brand new woman! I have had sever back pain and degenerative disease since I was 11 yrs old. About 6 yrs ago I was in an auto accident that I have had constant neck pain from. More recently, with my age now being 48, I have had knee and hip pain on my right side. After taking ACV in water, 2 tbls in 8 oz, for three days my hip no longer hurt! I decided to follow the recipe better and slowly drink 3 to 4 glasses of the same recipe all day. While at the gym I realized I could move my neck and look over my shoulder with no pain!! When I get up in the morning I no longer have to hang on to the counter when I kneel down to get something from the bottom of the cupboard!! I wake up everyday now PAIN FREE! I can't wait to see what happens next! As for my man, well he see's what it is doing for me and wants to do it too but hates the taste and doesn't have the patients. I have been doing all I can to get him to do it. He will now and again but won't do it every day. Does anyone have any ideas how to make it taste better for him? I am used to it already and really with everything it has done for me wouldn't care how it tasted.Thankyou so so so much for this site! Who would have thought that a little bottle from the grocery store costing all of one dollar could make me feel younger then I ever have!!

Apple cider vinegar all but eliminated swelling and pain. I am 58 and have been in good shape most of my life but had a low back injury over 3 years ago and have had severe pain and stiffness which has sent me to doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists and even a rolfer for 15 sessions! All of these helped but very temporarily. I have also been doing yoga and exercises from a book called Relaxercise (excellent by the way) which have also helped but only somewhat. I had been getting worse within the past few months and had develped knee, foot and hand pain along with swelling of these areas especially one ankle and foot which was twice the normal size. It hurt to walk or wear any type of shoe. My husband is an RN who looked at my swollen ankle and foot and told me it almost looked like gouty arthritis. This comment prompted me to research the subject and I found a blog of 100's of people all of who had been using ACV and all but 1 person rated the treatment 5 stars. I immediately went to a health food store and bought the organic, unfiltered ACV and started by taking 3 tablespoons in a large glass of water sweetened with organic raw honey. Following the first dose the night before, I woke to find the swelling reduced to about 1/4 of what it had been and the pain nearly gone. The stuff works like a miracle! I have continued to take it every day but have cut down the dose to 2 tablespoons 2-3 times per day in the same amount of water with honey. I have only a twinge of pain and 1 spot of swelling about the size of a quarter remaining on my ankle. Amazingly, my low back has less pain and more mobility than what I have ever had since the injury over 3 years ago. All this and I have only discovered this treatment less than 1 week ago! Amazing!!
