4 Foods to Help Manage Your Pain

This is more of an herb, unless you buy the root form. Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory agent. This means that it helps to reduce swelling all over the body.

Ginger can be tough to figure out how to use, but a quick search for recipes with ginger will give you a head start.

Natural oil

With coconut, you’re also getting antioxidants which help with cell repair. Adding either to your diet is very simple. Replace them in cooking, use as a salad dressing, or even take them by the spoonful.


This is a funny little herb, as it may not get rid of pain directly, but it is thought to obscure the body’s ability to interpret pain. So, while the ailment may technically still be there, your brain won’t register it. Since thyme is an herb, it can be added to multiple recipes easily. Once you get a taste for the flavor, you can pick and choose where thyme might be good.


This is another spice to add to the list. It is often found in Indian food, and is recognizable by the bright yellow color. Be careful with it because the color is so potent, it can stain clothes, surroundings, and even your skin. Turmeric is another great anti-inflammatory. It has a distinct smell and flavor, so if you don’t like it, it is available in capsule form. Some people even swear by its ability to take swelling from the skin, and therefore use it topically. It’s certainly one to add to the list.
