Sore muscles are nothing new for the old, and increasingly, something new for the young. The modern world does not force itself upon us lightly and many individuals are suffering from sore muscles from simply their daily routines. Of course, there are many who exert themselves excessively - another common enough habit of the modern world - and injure their muscles, requiring consultation and medication to treat their bruised body. In short, there is no shortage of muscle soreness in the world, and if only there were some easy and accessible way of remedying the problem. 

As it turns out, there is, and  the solution is delivered to us by the trusty hands of nature. Nature, as it has so many times before in the past, has a cure for many of our muscular ailments, not the least of which is a cure of muscle soreness and pain. From coffee to cherries to coconut oil, nature has plenty of painkilling products for us to pick from its vast and thrifty store. Most of these items are readily available and affordable to boot. 

Forget your ibuprofens and aspirins, nature’s the way to go for a natural solution to your painkilling needs. While aspirin can have a blood thinning effect, many of nature’s offerings don’t. So, as it is very well know, natural cures for ailments are much preferred because of this absence of side effects. That said, always consult your doctor before beginning to try new things for a particular problem. You probably won’t need to worry about that with this particular pain remedy selection, but it is something worth bearing in mind. 

Now let’s move onto some remedies for muscle soreness and pain: 

  1. Coconut Oil 

The delicious Coconut Oil is a must-have in the kitchen self. Apart from the flavour it imparts to food, it is also full of substances that your body loves. The great thing about it is that you only need a few spoonfuls to cover you for the day, and in time remove that nasty pain you’re experiencing. 

  1. Epsom Salt Baths 

Not at all unheard of, Epsom Salts are rich in magnesium, which in adequate quantities relieves pain and soreness. During the bath, the body absorbs the magnesium through the skin, while the hot water soothes the pain you experience. 

  1. Capsaicin 

Capsaicin, the spicy element in spices, is a fabulous painkiller. It can be applied as a paste to the sore areas to relieve pain. This trick is an age old remedy that has survived the test of time because of its effectiveness. This is particularly effective for those suffering from arthritis. 

  1. Curcumin 

Curcumin is Turmeric, the ubiquitous spice and colouring agent of India. It has been discovered to be an effective anti-inflammatory agent and is suitable for anyone experiencing muscle soreness. Here again, arthritis patients can benefit greatly. 

  1. Watermelon 

The juicy loveliness of watermelons now possesses an additional reason for it to be consumed. It has been learned that watermelons are rich in anti-inflammatory agents and amino acids which greatly reduce muscle soreness. All you need to do is buy a watermelon, thrown it into a blender and drink up the mix. We never really needed an excuse to drink watermelon, but we’re glad that it can do this anyway! 

There you go, some excellent and inexpensive solutions to pain problems. You don’t need to be told that many of the ingredients mentioned here have other benefits as well and could very well kill many birds with one stone. Whatever your preferred choice of treatment, always remember that water accompanies all treatments. A body that is prevented from having its necessary quantity of fluid intake will have a much tougher fighter against pain, or any illness for that matter. 

And again, consult your doctor about everything you try, and especially if your muscle soreness is beyond reasonable pain. It could be an indication of something more serious.
