Olive oil can help relieve your pain...

by , 29 April 2013

Scientists at the Monell Chemical Centre in Philadelphia dicovered that a compound called oleocanthanol found in freshly pressed extra virgin olive oil works just as well as ibuprofen in relieving pain.

Ibuprofen is an over-the-counter painkiller commonly dished out for joint and other pain.

According to the scientists, although oleocanthanol and ibuprofen are structurally different, they work in the same way... By blocking COX (cyclo-oxygenase) enzymes in the prostaglandin-biosynthesis pathway.
But there is a catch: You’d have to swallow 10 times the amount of olive oil to achieve the same pain-relieving effects of one dose of ibuprofen. That adds up to as many as 45 tablespoons of olive oil per day.

Definitely not recommendable...

But, you should consider following a Mediterranean-style diet to increase your intake of the COX inhibitor, extra virgin olive oil. It has long-term health benefits (with none of the side effects that go along with ibuprofen).
The Mediterranean diet is rich in olive oil, fruit, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and fish. And people who follow this diet are generally healthier: They have lower rates of cardiovascular disease and cancer... And they tend to live longer, as well.
Hopefully, soon we'll see natural health manufacturers bringing oleocanthanol itself to the market - as a safe natural pain reliever.

Until then, there are other natural ways to help relieve pain, fish oil is one of the most effective ways to combat inflammation... And there's also this method that thousands of people swear by...

Get rid of aches, pains, headaches and migraines...

If you suffer from lumbar pains, sciatica, migraine, rheumatism, unexplained tiredness, headaches, backpains, neck pains, digestion problems, sexual impotence or arthritis, you need not suffer a day longer. Your life can be changed. Your pain could disappear.

Most people don't understand why this happens to them, they seem to take it for granted that it's their lot in life. They consult doctors, take pills and often continue to suffer.

The solution for all these ails could lie elsewhere. What they don't appreciate is that to stay in good health, the laws of nature must be respected.

And that's where this little Bracelet could help you. Just try it and you'll be amazed with the results.
