Everyone goes through trials and tribulations. Mentally, check. Emotionally, check. Physically, double check. If you have gone through your life uninjured or with no physical ailments—Congratulations! You deserve a medal and a cheesy super hero movie to be written about you. For the rest of us “normal people,” physical pain can become an overwhelming norm in our daily lives. Doctor’s might prescribe physical therapy, put you on a painkiller path to destruction, and even assure you surgery is the only permanent solution. Well, everybody, gather ‘round—because I am about to tell you three natural remedies for pain that you should be using.
Whether you are an athlete, work a physically demanding job, suffer from a chronic condition, or are simply getting older and your body is getting more fragile—pain is inevitable. And quite honestly, muscle pain, in my opinion, is the absolute worst. It’s one of those gray areas where we can’t quite get an exact diagnosis and somehow it seems no matter how much we try to prevent it, muscle pain always prevails. And if you’re like me, you cringe at the thought of pumping yourself full of pills in hopes of “maintaining” the problem. Read below for three natural pain remedies you shouldn’t be living without.
The LumiWave Infrared Light Therapy Device
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. “Another thing that is going to end up in my garage sale next year…” Well, you’re wrong. The LumiWave is one of those futuristic, click-of-a-button, kind of remedies we used to only be able to dream about. Remember that Adam Sandler movie “Click” where he can pause, fast-forward, and rewind time? Okay, that’s the LumiWave – except for pain management. This product is a holistic and natural approach to medicine. It uses near-infrared light waves (NIR) emitted through specially engineered light emitted diodes (LEDs). For those of you, like me, who are not scientists or engineers, here is what all of that crazy talk means: It targets the inflamed muscles, joints, and deep tissue areas of the body (think back, shoulders, ankles, wrists, and knees – our problem areas!) by warming the affected areas with biostimulation. Still not sure what I’m talking about? You apply the LumiWave, press a button, and it puts out a warming sensation that is relaxing and soothing on your aching muscles, all while it is stimulating cell regeneration—meaning your muscles will heal FASTER! The infrared technology promotes the release of Nitric Oxide into the tissue and joints, which if you didn’t already know, is your body’s natural way of healing itself.
This product has no known side effects, approved by the FDA in 2005, and is even safe for pregnant women or those who suffer from cancer – just don’t apply it directly over the baby bump or affected area. Let me take a second to remind you that this is a pill-free, chemical-free, ALL NATURAL solution to muscle pain. That means none of those negative side effects like nausea, fatigue, and even addiction. This is a cost-effective and professional medical device and worth every single penny.
Here’s the kicker – The LumiWave is HANDSFREE! You can be sitting at home watching TV, doing homework, or whatever else you like to do while using this product. You just strap it around the affected area or simply place it on top. If you don’t believe me, ask the professional athletes, Olympians, and Navy Seals who use it.

America’s Favorite Past Time…FOOD!
“What?! Are you crazy? What I eat isn’t going to help my pain!” False. False, false, false. What you eat will absolutely help reduce your pain. Quit filling up with carbs and sugar – eat foods that are going to help HEAL and rebuild your muscles and joints. Amino acids help build and regenerate damaged tissue and muscle. Try eating more protein-rich foods like chicken, fish, eggs, milk, and yogurt. Don’t eat meat or milk products like me? No problem! Instead, add sweet potatoes, lentils, almonds, figs or dates, and spinach to your diet. Or, add it all and you will be on top of the world!
An easy way to remember what kind of foods are good for your body is this: Eat ingredients, not products made of ingredients. It’s that simple…Seriously.
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day. This will help promote a healthy body and mind. My general rule for water is simple—if you feel thirsty, drink some water! It is also a good idea to consume alcohol in moderation (as always), but especially when trying to find relief from an aching body. This causes dehydration which totally slows down the healing process.
Good Old Fashioned Exercise
And what about exercise? Fighting fire with more fire? Actually, no. Exercise will also help you heal faster. And I’m not talking about going on a 10 mile run uphill in both directions or high-intensity weight lifting either. Healing exercises that are going to make your body feel better (and make your heart stronger!) are going to be low-intensity. If you overdo it, you will probably make yourself feel worse.
For some reason, when I think low-intensity, I immediately think about yoga. But, yoga isn’t all you can do. For starters, you can try walking or cycling. Make things interesting by taking your walk in a scenic place like the woods and you can even call it hiking! Do you prefer water? Try kayaking! If you don’t want to invest in a kayak, find a lake that rents them by the hour near you.
You don’t have to own any fancy-schmancy exercise equipment. Go for a leisurely bike ride, do some low-intensity aerobics using the stairs, take the dog for a walk—the possibilities are endless. The bottom line is, as long as your heart is pumping, you are doing something right.
So there is it, folks! The miracle behind the pain management—three natural remedies that are calling your name. Now get off the computer (unless you are ordering a LumiWave) and start getting rid of your pain!
