12 Natural, Safe And Most Effective Pain Relievers on the Planet!


These days society is over-dosed with pain relievers which adds huge amounts of stress to our body.  I’ve always preached that Mother Nature knows best.  We are designed to stay healthy and recover naturally through the foods we eat.  So instead of reaching for that bottle of Ibuprofen or prescription meds, try some of these beauties.  They are all natural, grown from the planet we are created from and will not give you side effects.  These anti-inflammatories are some of the most powerful, safest, and most effective pain relievers in the world.  By feeding your body with the following ingredients, you’ll give your body a powerful and proven fight against inflammation and pain.


This special natural compound which is extracted from pineapple contains several proteolytic enzymes that have been shown to short-circuit multiple pain pathways in the body.  It has been studied extensively since it’s discovery in 1957 and hundreds of studies have shown it to reduce inflammation, reduce and prevent swelling and remove waste and toxins from the blood.  For example, in one study, 77 patients taking Bromelain experienced significant reduction in pain and swelling.



Papain is unique in that it’s been shown to actually attack tumor cells and boost the immune system!  It also contains a wide range of proteolytic enzymes and works by breaking down proteins.  In studies it has been shown to be effective in the treatment of numerous conditions such as diabetes, herpes, cancer and digestion issues like bloating and chronic indigestion.  It’s an enzyme very few people have enough of, yet if they did, would reduce the frequency of a lot of common diseases and disorders!

Devil’s Claw

Numerous studies have proven it’s effectiveness in reducing pain and inflammation.  In fact, one study found that Devil’s Claw was as effective in treating arthritis pain as common drug, phenylbutazone… which is so strong it’s even used to treat pain in horses!  There have also been several studies on humans which show that Devil’s Claw is as effective as COX-2 inhibitors… without the deadly side effects!

A series of studies completed in Germany found that the main ingredient in Devil’s Claw was indistinguishable from Vioxx in the treatment of chronic low back pain!

Boswellia Extractboswellia

One of the most widely used herbs in Indian medicine, it has been used for centuries by traditional Indian healers to reduce pain and inflammation.  Hundreds of studies have been done proving it’s effectiveness and in addition to being a powerful and safe, natural anti-inflammatory, Boswellia has also been shown to support healthy blood circulation.  In a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study, 30 patients received 333mg, 3x a day of Boswelia.  The group who received the Boswelia had a significant reduction in pain and swelling and experienced an increase in joint mobility and flexibility as compared to the placebo group.

vitaminEVitamin E

This fat-soluble vitamin is an essential nutrient for humans and is known for it’s powerful anti-oxidant properties.  Vitamin E has been shown to be beneficial in numerous situations and conditions such as controlling high blood pressure, maintaining healthy and balanced cholesterol levels and boosting immune system function.

Plus… it has also been shown to improve circulatory conditions, skin health, memory and more.  In short, it benefits virtually your entire body!

Ginger Extract

Used for over 2,500 years in Asia, Ginger has been used to treat nausea and to reduce pain and inflammation.

It works by decreasing the amount of prostaglandins, which are what cause you to feel pain. In other words, it does what NSAID’s and prescription pain meds do, but in the way nature intended it to do so… instead of forcing it and causing side effects!

turmericTurmeric Extract

Turmeric has the unique ability of using its antioxidant powers to seek out and destroy free radicals in the body which contribute to pain and swelling.  A recent study done at the prestigous Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Center in New York.  In this study they found that Turmeric was more safe and precise than asprin in stopping inflammation by shutting down the COX2 enzyme responsible for pain.

And Turmeric caused none of asprin’s typical gastrointestinal irritation!



Found naturally in a variety of plants and fruits, this flavanoid has been shown to have a strong anti-inflammatory effect due to it’s powerful anti-oxidant activity.  Reducing your inflammation leads to changes throughout your entire body.  Changes such as … a reduction of pain… increased circulation and dozens of other health benefits which ramp up your energy!

Citrus Bioflavanoidscitrus bioflavonoids

Citrus bioflavanoids aid in the absorption of vitamins and act as important anti-oxidants.  They also inhibit collagenase and elastase, the enzymes responsible for the breakdown of connective tissue.  That way your joints and ligaments stay as healthy as when you were a teenager!  In addition to protecting connective tissues, they also protect against free radical damage.


L-GlutathioneThere are literally over 20,000 research studies available on how glutathione can help your body in everything from cancer prevention to more supple skin.  Glutathione is quite literally THE most important antioxidant in your body.  The benefits of increased glutathione are virtually endless, since glutathione is the antioxidant that controls ALL other antioxidants in your body.

It is the ONLY antioxidant in your body that has the ability to eliminate ALL free radicals, not just specific types!

The Mojave Yucca root has more benefits than you could shake a stick at!  These improvements in your health include migraine relief… decreased blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides…better digestion… reduction of muscle spasms… improved blood circulation… treating various skin conditions… healing wounds… and it even promotes shiny and healthy hair.

Proteolytic Enzymespineapple-papaya

Research indicates these enzymes work throughout your entire body to help it fight inflammation… dissolve scar tissue… cleanse and thin the blood… plus even boost cardiovascular, respiratory and immune function.

In other words, proteolytic enzymes are the final line of defense against disease, illnesses, pain and everything else that happens inside your body.  And unfortunately with the nutrient-deficient food we’re eating today, the vast majority of adults today have dangerously low levels of these enzymes!  The easiest and most affordable way to get them in your body is by taking Heal-n-Soothe on a regular basis.
