Numerous herbs and nutrients have been shown to help with pain, inflammation and soft tissue health.

These include:

Essential Fatty Acids – in particular omega-3 fatty acids from fresh oily fish, are converted into potent anti-inflammatory substances in the body.

Hops Extract – compounds in hops, such as iso-alpha acids, have been shown to support connective tissue health and reduce inflammation.

Herbs and Spices – numerous culinary herbs and spices have been shown to have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These include turmeric, ginger, cayenne, rosemary & lemon.

Glucosamine Hydrochloride – Glucosamine is the basis for the formation of vital connective tissue substances. It’s found naturally in the body where it plays a role in helping build tissue that retains water, providing cartilage thickness and giving it a cushioning effect.

Chondroitin – supports healthy joint matrix formation and can help improve joint mobility. Important component of cartilage and vital to the everyday renewal of cartilage tissue.

MSM – methyl sulphonyl methane (MSM) is an organic form of the mineral sulphur and is required for the healthy formation of structural connective tissue, as well as having pain-relieving properties.

Olive Leaf Extract – may help maintain blood circulation.

Collagen – important component of cartilage, and vital to the everyday renewal of cartilage tissue.

Celadrin – derived from specific fatty acids which play a role in helping maintain fluidity and elasticity of cell membranes. Tests have shown that combining Celadrin with Glucosamine creates a natural synergy to help support mobility in the joints.

Pain is the leading cause of physical and psychological suffering in the UK, with up to 50% of the population experiencing ongoing chronic persistent pain.

With the ageing population, this figure is set to rise even further in the coming years. Many people have multiple sources of pain, including muscle and nerve pain, and conventional treatments may often be of only limited help.

Living with chronic persistent pain has a tremendous impact on psychological and physical wellbeing with many patients experiencing sleep disturbances, decreased physical functioning, interference with activities of daily living, disruptions in social relationships, decreased productivity, decreased cognitive function, increased anxiety and depression, all leading to decreased quality of life.

Did You Know?

Common to all of these conditions is inflammation. Inflammation is a complex biological response by the body to injury or assault, as it attempts to remove the cause and initiate tissue healing.

Inflammation shows itself as swelling, heat and redness with attendant pain, as blood flow increases to the affected area and immune cells accumulate to eliminate the cause of injury and initiate the healing process.

The Inflammatory Process

Typically strategies for pain management rely mainly on medications. But as our need for pain management increases, so does awareness about the risks of pain relieving drugs. Increasing evidence of serious health risks, including organ damage and death, have left patients and health professionals looking for safer alternatives. In addition, traditional painkillers are rarely effective at reducing nerve pain.

Pain Killers aren’t the Only Solution

Fortunately, recent advances in nutritional science have led to the development of highly effective natural approaches to pain management. By combining safe and effective lifestyle and nutritional strategies, the underlying causes and mediators of chronic persistent pain can often be successfully addressed, providing long-lasting relief from pain, invariably leading to vast improvements in physical and psychological wellbeing.

A New Approach to Pain Relief

What we eat contributes significantly to how we feel. Fresh, whole organic foods can contribute to good digestion and metabolism, and many of these foods are considered “anti-inflammatory”. Other foods can be “pro-inflammatory” causing pain and inflammation to increase. Some foods, specifically plants from the nightshade family (eg. tomatoes, peppers, aubergines & white potatoes) contain a compound called solanine, which can cause inflammation in certain individuals and should therefore be avoided.

Controlling Inflammation through Diet

In addition to making dietary changes, it may also be helpful to supplement with nutritional formulas containing natural substances that have been shown to act as natural, safe inhibitors of pain and inflammation.

Clinically Effective Formulas

Although inflammation is a normal part of the healing process, when it becomes prolonged and if left untreated, it can cause numerous problems. Chronic inflammation can result when the body’s immune system is “tricked” into attacking its own soft tissue as though it was an invader, resulting in tissue destruction and the development of a host of chronic conditions. Some of the most common conditions associated with chronic pain are:

  • Back pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Inflammatory bowel disorder
  • Headaches and migraine
  • Musculoskeletal injury and trauma
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Autoimmune disease


If you suffer from chronic persistent pain, it may be helpful to follow these dietary guidelines:

Healthy foods to include:

Green leafy vegetables, oily fish such as Wild Alaskan Salmon, pumpkin seeds, almonds, other nuts and seeds (not peanuts) brown rice, oats, quinoa, beans, lentils, chicken, turkey, lamb, broccoli and most other vegetables, non-citrus fruit, spices such as turmeric and ginger and rosemary and lemon, plenty of water.

Foods to avoid:

Wheat and gluten, dairy products, hydrogenated vegetable oils, red meat, processed meats such as bacon, shellfish, peanuts, citrus fruits, tomatoes, peppers, white potatoes, aubergine, sugar, sweeteners, fizzy/sugary soft drinks, alcohol.
