One natural remedy that is generating a great deal of excitement among scientists for its remarkable pain-relieving properties is capsaicin - the fiery active ingredient in chilli peppers.
It has been found to alleviate the pain of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, sciatica, diabetic neuropathy (numbness/ tingling pain in hands or feet), and shingles when used in the form of a cream for topical application.
Chillies block the sensation of pain...
Scientists have discovered that capsaicin can successfully block an important pain
messenger in your body known as substance P.
This means that although the pain sensation is picked up by your pain sensors, it’s prevented from being sent to your brain because the messenger – substance P – is inactivated, so pain is not felt or experienced.
Researchers reviewed the findings of six studies involving a total of 656 patients and concluded that not only is capsaicin cream far more effective than a placebo, but also that it provides a useful therapy for people who get little relief from standard painkillers.
In fact, a scientific review of all treatments available for neuralgia found capsaicin to be one of the best remedies for alleviating the chronic pain of this debilitating condition.
You can buy ointments and creams containing capsaicin at good health shops.
