Do you suffer from stomach pain, arthritis pain, back pain, or general body aches? If your answer is no, you're a rarity! Most of us have these afflictions at one time or another.

A common remedy to these problems is popping an over-the-counter pill and some people choose prescription drugs as an answer.

I have exciting news! Did you know that your diet can cure these problems without drugs? There are some fantastic natural remedies that really work.

Pineapple has been called the "natural Advil". It is a natural cure for inflammation. It has been noted that a man actually cured his back pain by eating pineapple for three days. Because of its properties, it is ideal for arthritis pain as well. Another great pain blocker is the blueberry. It is also highly recognized for its amazing pain-relieving power.

If arthritis is a problem try removing potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplant from your diet. These are know to agitate the condition. Some cases of arthritis have been cured by the simple elimination of potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplant!

Having stomach pain? Try fresh cut ginger-root. This is known to help with any stomach issues like nausea, morning sickness, and motion sickness. It is also available in a capsule or tea. Give it a try. Peppermint is another terrific cure for nausea.

Things to avoid with stomach issues are eggs, and milk. For that matter all dairy products. Milk is listed as one of the top 5 allergens in adults. If you notice gas or indigestion after consuming dairy, try a lactose free milk or soy milk.

Other foods to avoid for pain related problems are white flour and white sugar. Both these ingredients cause fluctuations in blood sugar levels which indirectly affect inflammation. Inflammation causes pain. Whole grain products are okay.

Still having aches and pains or menstrual cramps? Go to any health food store and find a calcium-magnesium mixture. It's available in powder form to easily make a drinkable solution. Or find the capsules. This is an amazing calming concoction as well. It helps with both pain and mild anxiety.

Our bodies perform better when natural remedies are used rather than synthetic chemicals. You'll not only save dollars, you'll save yourself!
