Even the fittest, healthiest person in the world experiences sore muscles. Often caused by overuse, injury or lack of certain essential minerals, sore muscles are a nuisance, though fortunately most often the discomfort will pass within a couple of days, so long as there is not a more serious underlying condition.
We found a great list of all-natural home remedies for sore muscles for you to add to your home remedy database. These include both oral and topical remedies – and the list contains some interesting ones I was not aware of. For example blackstrap molasses – which contains significant amounts of magnesium. The original source page includes a fascinating traditional drink which includes molasses, called Switchel. This is apparently a very old Yankee recipe… though with a name like that is sounds as though it may just have even older, European origins. I had to look it up: I was completely wrong… according to Wikipedia, switchel, also known as haymakers’ punch, originated in the Caribbean – though it is reported to have been popular as early as the late 1600’s! How’s that for an old school traditional remedy?
Note that these remedies are in general for minor complaints. If you are injured or in severe pain, of course, seek medical attention.
