If you’ve been driven crazy by chronic or acute pain (who hasn’t?), you’ll do anything you can to alleviate it.
But many people are concerned (rightly so) about potentially nasty side effects or long term effects of taking pain meds. This, combined with a huge and growing body of modern scientific research into plant chemistry, has triggered a resurgence in interest in natural and herbal remedies for pain – which many people feel are safer and kinder to the body in the long term – and nutritional remedies, which may be closer to addressing causes rather than just symptoms.
This is also useful knowledge for those occasions when something strikes at 3am and you have to deal with it however you can. For example, if you had a sudden toothache in the middle of the night and had nothing in the medicine cabinet, what would you do? Knowledge is king and if you knew that cloves were a standard toothache remedy in old times, you might be able to take the edge off it until you can get treatment.
