    Have you ever heard of opium lettuce? How about kratom? These are just a few of the many natural herbs which have been used over the centuries as painkillers. Read on to find out how to use natural herbs for pain to achieve pain relief without over-the-counter and pharmaceutical drugs.

    We didn’t always rely on pharmaceutical painkillers, but in the past several years, some reports indicate that 4 out of 5 people relied on a prescription narcotic to help alleviate pain. The several billion-dollar industry has boosted the percentage of people taking painkillers that are even stronger than morphine. These include include such drugs as fentanyl, hydromorphone, methadone, and oxycodone. The numbers grew from 17% in 1999 to 37% in 2012, according to one study. Use of strong painkillers like Vicodin and OxyContin are higher now, too. Sales of these drugs have more than quadrupled in recent years.



    As we’ve become more and more divorced from nature and rely increasingly on an industry that looks out for profits more than people, we’ve forgotten some of the most common natural healing and pain-killing plants on the planet. They don’t require a prescription, and some are even considered weeds that grow on roadsides. Though of course anyone looking to utilize these solutions would need to really research dosage and overall usage directions; it just starts with knowing they exist.

    Here are 4 natural herbs for pain relief you likely haven’t heard of:

    1. Blue Lotus


    This plant is known elsewhere in the world as an aphrodisiac. Though considered a weaker painkiller among the natural plants with this ability, it can be especially useful for relieving muscle spasms, migraines, menstrual cramps, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). It can be made into a tea by boiling the flowers and flower heads, or wine for pain-relieving effects.

    2. Kava Kava


    Among natural herbs for pain resides Kava Kava. Used extensively in the Polynesian culture, Kava Kava gives a mild feeling of euphoria when it is imbibed. It also happens to be wonderful for those who suffer from back pain. What’s more, the herb acts as a mild analgesic and has been used as a local anesthetic in times past, and even to help babies who suffer from teething pains. If you want to reduce anxiety and remedy sleeplessness, this one is worth looking into.

    3. Wild Opium Lettuce




    This herb is considered an invasive weed in the US, but during the Victorian period it was used as a painkiller and mild sedative. The Institute for the History of Science affirmed in Lettuce, lactuca sp. as a Medicinal Plant in Polish Publications of the 19th Century,

    “The action of the substance was weaker than that of opium, but free of the side-effects, and medical practice showed that in some cases lactucarium produced better curative effects than opium.”
    The recommended dose varies, but approximately 1.5 grams of opium lettuce sap is typically infused in a tea to be sipped for pain-killing effects.

    4. Kratom


    Kratom is used for very severe pain, such as the pain that results from car accidents and invasive surgeries. Used in Southeast Asia for millennia, this natural herb for pain is from the same plant family as coffee. It is so effective that it could even replace oxycodone (Oxycontin) and hydrocodone (Vicodin).

    In Thailand, fresh leaves are chewed for mild sedative effects. Other naturalists have crushed dried leaves to create a powder to be brewed in tea, or simply added the kratom powder to water for pain-killing effects. A paste can also be made from evaporating kratom from a previously-made tea. Two ounces of crushed leaves per one quart of water is sufficient to make a pain-killing tea. Honey can be added as well for taste (and benefits).

    My wife is stuck with taking gabapentine and bupenorphrine for her neuropathy form being crushed in 2010 and having her back broken.

    She would love an alternative to this big pharma crap. Thanks Krag.

    High quality essential oils can also be good for external application, Tiger Balm is a lower grade option, Young Living's "Pain Away" is much better though more expensive. Some people have beat the pain trap on one of the sites I am a member of, let me know if you want more information or I could ask over there.

    This was being recommended: Reumofan in a post "A Mexican Non-Drug Import That Is Said to Reduce Pain." ("Reumofan Plus")

    Another product: http://www.energizeforhealth.com/sead-units-products.html

    I could email one guy who went through a tremendous amount of pain before he found a solution. Some say eliminating wheat and dairy made dramatic differences.

    The kava kava will make you drowsey. Put a few drops of tincture into a cup of tea.

    Grow it. Some of these plants originate in areas of the world where you need high humidity though. Also, using distilled water can affect the pH in the plant. Beyond that it's not to difficult.

    If you got to have it, you got to have it.

    I've seen virtually every health product that has come down the pike marketed as wonder herbs, unique, creating happy well-adjusted people full of energy and life, etc.. And 95% of it is bunk. Better than big pharma for sure; the doctor tells the patient to jump, and he says "how high?" Doc. tells him/her they have cancer with one year to live and so they go through the chemo/radiation/surgery approach with even less hope, even though the problem could easily go into remission with a pure diet with juice fasting, calorie limitation, volunteering, replacing negative patterns with positive ones. Really not beyond anyone's ability to do. People could just re-examine their lives and get them in order.

    We've had the Adele Davis program which I saw people follow, recommending Tiger's Milk, my mother's doctor rightly called it "Panther's Piss" and said she was "bombing out the nursery". Ingredients? Brewer's yeast, whey, bone meal and other waste products of the food industry. Carlton Fredericks and other promoters got on the bandwagon. A chain smoker, he was recommending mega vitamin therapy--get your three fist fulls a day of vitamins that your body cannot process!

    I could give dozens of examples of stupid programs. The better ones are focused on simple solutions like quality water, teas, healthy local foods if possible. It shouldn't be that complicated.

    I will try to contact my senators to support kratom, etc.. It looks pretty benign compared to the narcotics. There are many nervines--herbs geared toward healthier neurological conditions. Tylenol--now that should be illegal.
