Natural Pain Relief

Muscle, nerve and joint pain can be mild or severe, chronic or just come on suddenly. The good news is that Mother Nature can ease the ache.

Your body is an intricate network of bones, muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Pain can result from an acute physical injury, such as a pinched nerve or strained muscle, which in turn may be caused by a variety of triggers, such as whiplash – often from an accident or sports injury – lifting a heavy object or engaging in strenuous activity. Pain can also result from habitually poor posture and chronic and degenerative joint and/or nerve disorders, such as arthritis, rheumatism, sciatica, fibromyalgia or a prolapsed disc. Fractures resulting from osteoporosis also cause severe pain. Stress, pregnancy and certain occupations, such as working on computers, are other predisposing factors. Treatment should focus on resolving the underlying problem, if possible, or, at the very least, bringing short-term relief and organising the long-term management of chronic pain.

A roller-skating accident in the 1970s left Geoff Surtees in crippling pain. “Climbing stairs was not an option and even getting out of bed in the morning was painful,” he says. After trying every possible treatment, doctors said that he would have to undergo knee replacement surgery. However, he then discovered Zea’s Kunzea products – and he has not looked back. “I’ve used this cream for years and I still love it!” he says. “I never leave home without a tube of it and I often suggest it to other people. Living without pain – now, that’s a big thing.”
