Healthy Living: Natural pain-relief products
By Gerald B. Phillips, M.D.
We may finally have a combination of natural substances that are effective for pain control. Terry Lemerond, the man who brought us glucosamine for arthritis, IP6 for cancer, and black cohosh for hot flashes, has come up with a natural blend of common ingredients that are safe and work well to control pain. This new combination -- brand name Curamin -- is a combination of curcumin, curcuminoids, DL-phenylalanine, boswellia, and nattokinase.
Each of these substances works in different ways to cause quick and prolonged pain relief. The curcumin acts like a steroid as an anti-inflammatory, and as a pain reliever. It has long been known as an immune builder, and supports the body’s natural inflammatory response. Curcumin acts as a COX2 inhibitor, without the dangerous side effects that caused some of the arthritis medications to be removed from the market several years ago.
Curcuminoids are tiny sub-particles which make up curcumin. Researchers have isolated a specific curcuminoid and concentrated it 100 times, combining it with curcumin for a powerful, natural, and safe anti-inflammatory. This is a real breakthrough.
Boswellia is another well-known herb that is proven to have anti-inflammatory properties. This, in combination with the other elements, has proven to be a great product for pain relief. DLPA is a common amino acid, which has the ability to increase serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin helps you tolerate pain.
The last ingredient, nattokinase, is an enzyme to reduce swelling and promote blood flow. This results in aiding the other ingredients in the formula to reach all areas of the body and reduce pain.
By using the combination approach to address occasional pain, powerful results are realized. The actions of these superior ingredients span the range from balancing the body’s natural inflammation response, to impacting fibrinogen, to supporting the body’s own ability to reduce occasional pain. There has never been a product quite like Curamin, and I believe you will experience a level of relief you never thought possible from a natural product. Curamin is safe enough to try without worry of side effects and can be bought at health food stores without a prescription.
