Dr Oz: Natural Remedies for Pain
There can be plenty of reasons and causes for stress in our life, and Dr. Oz shared some natural ways we can fight back against our pain and discomfort to try to get back to feeling our best, with common ingredients we might have around the house. Here are a few of the remedies he suggested on his show.
Dr Oz: Boswellia Back Pain Remedy
Lisa, a member of the audience, has been struggling with back pain from long hours spent at her desk. She tried yoga, but it didn’t help relieve her pain. Dr. Oz suggested a Boswellia remedy for Lisa and other back pain sufferers.
Boswellia contains an anti-inflammatory called Gingerols. You can get the benefits of this by adding a teaspoon of Ginger to any beverage, or by taking 300 mg of Boswellia supplements. Another alternative for back pain is the use of Frankincense.
Dr Oz: Red Mineral Algae Joint Pain Remedy
Lisa works on a small laptop every day, and this also causes her a lot of problems with the joints in her hands and fingers. Dr. Oz said that laptop keyboards, especially when used for hours, can lead to inflammation of the joints.
Taking a supplement such as Red Mineral Algae can help to alleviate some symptoms, because it contains Calcium, Magnesium, and Boron. The recommended dosage, according to Dr. Oz, is 2400 mg daily.
Dr. Oz: Garlic Salt Remedy For Tooth Pain
Did you know that Garlic Salt could be the key to relieving stubborn tooth pain? To try it out, apply salt to a clove of garlic. Then place it on the affected tooth, biting down to release the juices. That sounds crazy enough to work, and I’ll have to remember it for the next time I have a toothache.
All you need are a few cloves of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Dr Oz: Headache Remedy – Humming
Sinus pain is a common cause of headaches, and while there’s no magic remedy for this one, the answer could be something you learned as a baby. Dr. Oz explained that humming could help to open the sinuses, reducing the chance of infection and helping air circulate.
He suggested humming for one hour, and had his audience practice with “Mary Had A Little Lamb,” but you will probably want to pick another song that isn’t in the public domain, or maybe even hum along to a favorite playlist.
