There are several remedies to alleviate body aches. But the important thing to know is what is causing them in the first place and what is the nature of the pain. Are they muscular cramps, joint pains or is there a general feeling of malaise caused by poor posture and improper sleeping habits.


If you have just begun an exercise regime, it is possible that you are overdoing it. Try reducing the intensity of exercise and increasing it slowly over a period of weeks. Also never do any rigorous exercise without warming up and stretching before hand.


If the problem is in the joints, then warm compresses applied to the aching areas will help. If the problem is rheumatic or arthiritic joint pain, please take supplements containing Omega 3 fats and a turmeric extract called curcumin. These will reduce inflammation and therefore bring down the pain. Sleep on a mattress that is neither too soft nor too hard but supports your spine adequately. Poor sleep habits are a frequent cause of body aches. For women with a large bosom, wearing a well fitting bra will take care of the persistent back pain.The flowing are herbal remedies to reduce cramping and muscle pain:

  • Apply herbal compresses containing St.John’s Wort, chamomile or witch hazel
  • You can prepare a salve using Arnica or Cayenne pepper. Arnica is a natural pain reliever and Cayenne Pepper improves circulation.
  • Massage the area with Lavender oil.
  • Make infusions of Valerian or rosemary and drink them.
