Some people get relief from pain by combining natural herbs/supplements with prescription meds. or just by taking natural herbs
/supplements alone. Natural herbs
and supplements like willow bark, boswellia, cherry, ginger, MSM, fish oil, glucosamine, magnesium, sappan, and ribose can help with pain. There are some formulas which combine some of these so you don't have to take them indvidually, just search the internet.
