Ibuprofen is a type of “non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug” (NSAID) that is in wide use as a painkiller. It has been demonstrated to be effective at pain removal, however there is the possibility of some serious side effects, including internal bleeding and heart problems such as higher risk of heart attacks or stroke.

Despite this, ibuprofen remains one of the most popular painkillers in the market and continues to be sold in most drugstores, grocery stores, and convenience stores throughout the world. [1]



The risk of this varies depending on the amount used and from person to person. But I had a personal experience with Ibuprofen, not so long ago, where I only took ONE and the following morning there was blood. It did seem a mighty strange coincidence that the one time I took Ibuprofen in years just so happened to be several hours before the one time in years I passed blood. Now your mileage may vary – but it was “game over” for me, I have no intention of ever taking it again. Anyway I hope that’s not “too much information”.

#1 – White Willow Bark

With the scientific name Salix alba, white willow is a plant used for the extracts from its bark. Historically, white willow has been widely used to manage a variety of conditions because of its anti-inflammatory, anti-pyretic, and analgesic properties. In modern times, it is an excellent natural alternative to manage headaches, chronic lower back pain, joint pain, and osteoarthritis. Though more research is needed, willow bark is also promising in dealing with menstrual cramps, fever, flu, inflammation of the tendons, and even pain caused by cancer. [2][3]

#2 – Chili Pepper

Chili pepper is a pretty unusual method of managing pain. Its spicy flavor and inherent heat make it a favorite in cooking but did you know that it also has potent analgesic properties. Capsaicin, the active component of hot peppers has been used in topically-applied creams since the 1980s to manage pain. In recent times, the EU and USA has approved the use of a capsaicin patch, which has been shown to manage neuropathic pain effectively, compared to pain medications. A single 60-minute application of the Qutenza™ patch was able to prove pain relief for up to twelve weeks in patients experiencing neuropathic pain. The capsaicin patch does this by desentisizing pain receptors, reducing pain effectively and immediately for a prolonged period of time. [4]



#3 – Boswellia

Boswellia is a tree famous for its fragrant resin which has therapeutic effects in the management of pain. Studies have shown how variants of Boswellia extract can rapidly alleviate pain as well as be able to manage chronic pain caused by osteoarthritis. In the case of people affected by arthritis, Boswellia was able to improve pain, mobility, and joint flexion after eight weeks of treatment. [5][6]

    @maricela look into food grade diatomaceous earth. Seems to have a lot of detoxifying and pain reducing properties.

    I have a bulging disc due to disintegration of the lumbar/sacral vertebra. I have found that boswellia and turmeric is amazing for the nerve pain and also the pains with fibromyalgia. It is also good for asthma.

    I have severe Asthma and Ibuprofen, could kill me. I’ve been in the hospital countless times because I took one and had a prolonged asthma attack. It took over 6 months for a doctor to tell me that could be causing it. Now it happens with any pain killer. So now when I’m in pain there’s nothing to do but wait it out. So I definitely want to learn about natural ways to help with it!

    I had a bleeding ulcer and after several transfusions was told I could never take commercial pain killers again. Unfortunately, I also get a lot of sinus pressure and/or headaches. I steep crushed red pepper and water into a tea and then sip it. Tastes terrible but gives me relief nearly all the time
