YOU really should be rethinking your stance on "BIG PHARMA painkillers" because of the TOO many side effects TO MENTION, AT THE END OF THOSE STUPID COMMERCIALS!! You know the ones...
Side-Effects may Include, cause--headache, nausea, vomiting, dysentery, cardiac arrhythmia, mild heart explosions, bleeding, shortness of breath...oh and my favs.... ERECTIONS THAT LAST MORE THAN 6 DAYS AND OF COURSE....DEATH!!
If you find these warnings pretty friggin scary, you should!!!
Instead, choose to relieve pain through natural methods. Using herbs, flowers, plants and seeds if you or a loved one is suffering from PAIN.... arthritis and other forms of joint or back pain, or really any bodily pain... Devil’s claw delivers the pain relieving benefits you need!
What Is Devil’s Claw?
The term “devil’s claw” or “devil’s claw root” refers to Harpogophytum procumbens, a plant found in the Kalahari savanna of southern Africa, Madagascar and the Namibian steppes.
Used as a Natural Painkiller....
While it seems to be effective for arthritis pain, devil claw’s benefits for pain don’t stop there. Although it isn’t understood well, devil’s claw reduces inflammation and inflammatory pain in a variety of conditions, including acute (fast onset) pain, with few adverse effects in somewhere around 3 percent of patients in studies.
One more BENEFIT is it Might Aid in Weight Loss!! :)
Interestingly, this anti-inflammatory root may also be a novel way to lose weight. A university study conducted in Ireland found devil’s claw can help to stop or slow ghrelin (known as the “hunger hormone”) production. By reducing hunger pangs, those with overeating issues may find their appetites at a level closer to average, aiding their weight loss.
Another way devil’s claw may help those with obesity is by potentially helping to prevent weight-related atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by the particular way it suppresses inflammation.
