Whenever we feel any kind of pain, we immediately reach for pills such as Ibuprofen or other painkillers in order to relieve it.
Although they sometimes work, Ibuprofen can have negative side-effects on our health when used for a longer period, which is why many experts suggest avoiding it.
Luckily, pains and aches can be relieved with the help of quite a few natural remedies which work better than most painkillers and have no adverse side-effects.
Osteochondrosis is a type of neck pain which affects millions of people around the world. It can be quite painful, and relying on over-the-counter drugs rarely works. Luckily, here’s a natural remedy that can help:
- 10 tablespoons of sea salt
- 20 tablespoons of olive or sunflower oil
Just mix the ingredients in a glass jar and close it, then leave it in a dark and cool place for a few days.
Whenever your neck hurts, you should rub a bit of the remedy on it right after getting up in the morning.
Begin with 2-3 minutes per day in the start, then gradually increase the duration of the massage until you reach 20 minutes. Wipe your neck with a damp cloth in the end and add some baby powder if your skin is irritated.
The treatment lasts for 10 days and should regenerate your muscles and tissues, effectively relieving neck pain.
The same method works against back pain or headaches, and has a positive impact on your overall health as well. The mixture of olive oil and sea salt will also detoxify your body and boost your metabolism.
If you’re feeling a bit dizzy after the massage, don’t worry – this is a sign that the remedy is working. Repeat the process for 10 days and you will get rid of any kind of pain!
