Dr Oz: Natural Remedies for Pain
Dr Oz and his guest, TV personality Montel Williams, talked about Montel’s Energy Plan & Smoothie Recipe on the show. They also covered some of the best natural pain remedies, including Hops Extract, Willow Bark, and Copper Infused Compression Clothing. See if any of these ideas could work for your pain.
Dr Oz: Hops Extract
Hops is a preservative used in beer, but it also has health benefits as an anti-inflammatory. Montel and Dr Oz discussed a Hops Extract dosage of 30 drops before bedtime. Montel said is has a slight bitter taste, but the results are worth it.
Foam Massage Roller: Dr Oz
Montel said one of his favorite pain relief solutions is a Foam Massage Roller. He said he has been using it every day for about six months. They cost less than $40, and they are easy to use because you simply roll them over your aching muscles. This is a pain relief technique that uses your body weight to your advantage in rolling knots and massaging the body’s deep tissue.
Dr Oz: Copper Infused Compression Clothing Reviews
Dr Oz and Montel talked about a new clothing item that is infused with Copper. Montel said he has been wearing one of these for the past two months and has started to see increased range of motion in his arms, which he can now raise above his head for the first time in years.
It can also be used to relieve symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Back Pain, and knee issues. Copper increases blood flow, which helps get circulation and oxygen through your body where you need it most. These garments even come in briefs, so you can buy this for your boyfriend or husband.
Dr Oz explained that Copper is important to the body’s central nervous system (maybe we shouldn’t get rid of the penny, then). But since these products are so new, Dr Oz seemed reluctant to speak about their long term effectiveness or safety.
Dr Oz: Willow Bark Dosage
Dr Oz had one last natural remedy, the herbal supplement Willow Bark. He suggested a dosage of 120 mg as an Aspirin alternative.
