Devil's Claw

Devil's claw is traditionally used to reduce inflammation and lower back pain especially from osteoarthritis of the spinal joints.

For people who have a history of stomach problems such as ulcers or heartburns, they should not take devil's claw.

Dose: Take a supplement that contains 60 mg of harpagoside (the active ingredient) up to twice daily with food. Or use 200 to 400 mg of the extract three times daily.

Fish Oil

Fish oil is a well-known supplement to promote heart health, but did you know that it also has anti-inflammatory benefits? It is shown in clinical studies to reduce inflammation and pain in conditions such as osteoarthritis, neck pain and back pain.

Dose: Take 4 to 6 grams daily of the two main ingredients DHA and EPA.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane)

MSM is commonly used in combination with glucosamine and chondroitin for treating osteoarthritis. It is a natural anti-inflammatory and it can help to reduce muscle spasms.

Dose: Take 3,000 to 8,000 mg daily (divided to three or four times daily). At this dosage, you may suffer from diarrhea. Lower the dose if this happens.

SAMe (S-adenosylmethinoine)

SAMe is commonly used to treat depression but it is also shown to help improve joint movement by reducing pain and inflammation.

One study showed that it seems to be as good as prescription anti-inflammatory drugs.

Dose: Take 400 to 1,200 mg daily.


Protein digesting enzymes such as bromelain show natural anti-inflammatory benefits. Other enzymes that have been studied and used to treat back pain include trypsin, chymotrypsin and papain.

These enzymes are shown to help treat pain caused by surgery, sports injury, arthritis and trauma.

Dose: Take 500 mg three times daily.

Magnesium and Calcium Supplements

In additional to keeping the bones and joints healthy with magnesium and calcium supplements, this combination also helps to reduce muscle spasm related to lower back pain.

Dose: Take 500 mg of calcium and 250 mg of magnesium two times daily with food.

Willow Bark

White willow bark is known to reduce inflammation and pain. It contains salicin (which Aspirin/ASA is made from). One advantage is that people experience less side effects (such as stomach irritation) compared to ASA.

Dose:  Take 60 to 120 mg of salicin daily (divided into two doses).


Well known for treating knee arthritis pain, glucosamine offers similar benefits as one of the natural cures for lower back pain. This supplement is especially helpful if the pain is caused by degenerating discs. Experts believe that it helps to repair the damaged joints.

Consider combining glucosamine with MSM.

Dose: Take 1,500 mg daily.

Cayenne Cream or Gel

Creams containing cayenne are very effective in reducing pain. They work by eliminating a chemical called substance P (a chemical that induces pain).

With regular use, the burning sensation will decrease. Do not apply to broken skin or get it in your eyes or mouth as it will burn like crazy! Wash your hands afterwards.

Usage: Apply the 0.025% to 0.075% cream several times a day to reduce pain.
