Herbs

There are several types of herbs that can provide us with a natural anti-inflammatory treatment. Unfortunately, not all anti-inflammatory herbs can be grown easily in your backyard, but they can be found in most modern grocery stores. Ginger, parsley, garlic, basil, cinnamon and turmeric are just a few of the many herbs that can provide natural anti-inflammatory treatment. Using herbs for natural anti-inflammatory treatment is a healthy and cost-effective alternative to prescription drugs.

Natural Anti-inflammatory Oils

There are a few types of oil that can provide a natural anti-inflammatory treatment with various methods. Cod liver oil contains anti-inflammatory properties, as it contains omega-3 fatty oils and has been scientifically researched to show that individuals suffering from various forms of arthritis and other inflammatory illnesses can benefit from a regular dosage. Olive oil has also been found to contain natural anti-inflammatory agents and can be rubbed into the affected or swollen area on the body as well as digested for positive results.

Pomegranate

Various scientific studies of the pomegranate fruit over the years have shown that digesting either the pomegranate supplements or the pomegranate fruit suppresses two chemicals or cytokines known as interleukin-6 and interleukin-8 that help to produce inflammation within the human body.

Natural Anti-inflammatory Diet

Another way to help beat painful inflammation is to combine an anti-inflammatory diet with your natural healthy diet. An anti-inflammatory diet consists of drinking plenty of water (at least eight glasses per day) and eating plenty of healthy fish, fruits and vegetables while avoiding foods that contain white flour, highly saturated fats, high amounts of sugar and red meat.

Supplements

There are so many varieties of natural anti-inflammatory supplements, but many of these still require scientific evidence that they actually work. There is nothing better for the human body than receiving natural foods and natural remedies, whether it be for anti-inflammatory purposes or otherwise. Remember, if you are suffering with an injury or illness, always check with your doctor whether it is safe for you to take any alternative medicines or treatments.
