Ease pain and stiffness with these natural remedies

PineappleNatural remedies have grown in popularity in recent years. They are full of vitamins, minerals and other natural chemicals that supporters claim offer more effective and healthier treatment than options pushed by the pharmaceutical industry.


Bromelin is a pineapple supplement that contains the digestive enzyme Bromelain, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent which has been clinically proven to reduce pain and swelling, promote tissue repair and improve joint mobility.

Unique to the UK market, Lichtwer Pharma’s new Bromelin tablets are standardised to contain 200mg of highly concentrated bromelain enzyme in a single, easy to swallow tablet and cost £7.99 for a pack of 30 One-A-Day tablets.  

Devil’s Claw

Scientifically proven to help maintain healthy and supple joints, ligaments and tendons, especially in the back. The anti-inflammatory muscle relaxant properties of this herbal extract offer fast acting relief and also make Devil’s Claw the perfect complement to professional treatments such as osteopathy or chiropractic care. Standardised Rivo Devil’s Claw tablets from Lichtwer Pharma are available from pharmacies, priced £9.99 for a 20-day course of 40 tablets.


Capsaicin, Boswellia serrata and MSM are the three ingredients of NatraFlex.  Capsaicin is the active component of Cayenne pepper and, aside from its warming and circulatory stimulating properties, it has also been found to be a powerful pain reliever.

Boswellia serrata is a deciduous tree whose active compounds are obtained from the gum resin known as Salai guggal which, when applied topically, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. MSM is a natural source of organic sulphur, which has been found in previous research to help improve joint flexibility, reduce stiffness, swelling and pain.

Magnetic Therapy

Magnetic Wave Therapy works by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the affected areas. This action triggers the production of higher levels of anti-inflammatory white blood cells and oxygen rich blood cells as well as the removal of pain inducing toxic material from the site of trauma. The result is an easing of pain and the start of the healing process. More about magnetic therapy and your health.
