Yesterday, I posted about inflammation - acute vs chronic - and ways to fight it. Herbs, pills, diet. Stuff I've learned after hurting my foot and having to deal with a painful hurt tendon. Owee.
Today, thought I'd list the various herbal and natural anti-inflammatories I learned about during my research, as well as sharing links that proved helpful to me.
Personally, I'm drinking green tea made with fresh ginger, sweetened with stevia, and I really think it's helping on the pain front. But ginger is far from the only anti-inflammatory that's all natural (read: not a pill) - here's a partial list:
