Pain is like a fire alarm. You don't want to simply shut it off but to attend to the fires themselves, getting to the root of the problem. Using herbs for pain support is not as simple as taking some ibuprofen. No one herb will work for everyone, yet many herbs can still be very supportive when chosen for the individual person's presentation and used alongside diet and lifestyle therapies that address the root causes of pain and reduce systemic inflammation.
In my recent guest blog post for the Herbal Academy, I feature five of my favorite pain herbs that you can grow or wildcraft easily in the backyard. This is an excerpt from my book Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies.
