Miraculous remedies to pain and day-long exhaustion.

Cherry Juice

To treat body pain, a glass of cherry juice works like a miracle which reduces pain and stiffness often associated with joint pains. Anti-inflammatory properties found in cherry is an efficient antidote to arthritis. Besides if you have joined the gym or started with workout sessions, the juice will ease muscle pain and replenish the lost strength in you. Simultaneously, you will feel more energised at exercises or performing the daily chores. In general, cherry is suggested to improve athletic performance and endurance.

Cold Therapy

Cold treatment entails rubbing ice on pain-inflicted regions. Wrap ice cubes in a towel or cloth and dab on the area. You can alternatively try cooling gel packs to conveniently place without the hassle of water dripping from the cubes. Non-medicated coolant sprays available over the counter are instrumental in reducing painful swelling. If the pain is severe, the treatment can be repeated twice or thrice daily.

Ginger Tea

Ginger tea ails pain and exhaustion. A hot cuppa also relieves you of migraines and headaches, menstrual pain and osteoarthritis discomfitures. The anti-oxidant rich ginger tea has abundant Vitamin C, minerals and magnesium which fight against nausea, respiratory difficulties and allergies, stress and pain. When added a pinch of honey, the potent medicine tastes delish.

Mustard Oil Massage

Mustard oil is an age-old remedy to ease pain. A warm bowl of oil can be rubbed over gently at least an hour before you take shower with warm water. Since the oil contains ALA which is an Omega-3 fatty acid, it fights against inflammation and pain. It regulates blood circulation and in the process reduces muscular tension. The massage can be preceded by hot compress. Put a heating pad or towel soaked in warm water to calm the ache.

Soak in Salt a Solution

The simplest of all remedies—warm a bowl of water, sprinkle some salt and soak in the body part. Try soaking in a towel and pressing it on the sore and aching regions. After a long day at work, this procedure will help you to rejuvenate.

Apple Cider Vinegar Concoction

To flush out toxins, there is perhaps no better natural remedy than apple cider vinegar. If you are abhorrent to the taste, add a tablespoon of honey and dilute the ingredients with water. The concoction cures sore muscles and pain of arthritis, overwork or inflammation. Another alternative to drinking the solution is directly applying the infusion to the affected region.
