If you are over 40, you have probably noticed some changes in your body. Joint pain is the most common sign of aging, and it usually starts in the knees, shoulders and knees. In younger individuals, joint pain occurs as a result of arthritis, rheumatism, trauma, fractures or excessive pressure.
Commercials are loaded with pills and creams that promise a pain relief, but soon after their affect stops, pain comes back, and sometimes even more aggressive.
Luckily, Russian folk medicine offers a natural and simple recipe that will help you get rid of your pain after the very first application.
- 1 tsp mustard
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp water
- 1 tsp fine salt
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir well until you get a homogenous texture. Transfer the mixture in an empty hand cream tube, or any other container you prefer better.
Coatings work best when it comes to applying this remedy. Apply them in the evening, before you go bed, so the ingredients have enough time to work. Rub the cream on your sore joint, wrap it in a clear film or plastic bag, and cover well with a warm, woolen scarf. Rinse in the morning.
Repeat the treatment for 4-5 days, and you will feel better after the very first application. Keep the remedy in your fridge.
Mustard and its health benefits
Mustard is made from the seeds of mustard plant. It provides a wide range of health benefits. In cases of burns, apply a thick layer of mustard on the affected area, and the pain will soon disappear.
You can also use mustard to treat cold, or a scratchy throat. Moreover, you can take a tablespoon of mustard to relieve any of these symptoms. If you are dealing with a severe headache, apply some mustard on your forehead and temples.
