Pain and Inflammation Relief

Devil’s Claw Benefits for Pain & Inflammation

Devils claw benefits - Dr. AxeMany are rethinking their stance on traditional painkillers because of the many side effects of these medications. Instead, they’re choosing to relieve pain through natural methods. For people suffering from arthritis and other forms of joint or back pain, this is where devil’s claw benefits come in.Devil’s claw is one of the most frequently used home remedies for arthritis. But that’s not the only way devil’s claw benefits the body. (1) Like turmeric, devil’s claw serves as a natural anti-inflammatory. Like the South American root, cat’s claw, devil’s claw is used to relieve the symptoms of arthritis and digestive problems.It is also used alongside bromelain in some research as a way to relieve joint pain, particularly related to arthritis.Even if you’re not looking for a pain remedy, you may still be interested to know the other devil’s claw benefits scientists have discovered. For example, there is at least one early report that it may have anticancer potential.


What Is Devil’s Claw?

To discuss what it does, it’s important to understand what devil’s claw is. The term “devil’s claw” or “devil’s claw root” refers to Harpogophytum procumbens, a plant found in the Kalahari savanna of southern Africa, Madagascar and the Namibian steppes.

In supplement form, devil’s claw is derived from the dried roots of the plant. African and European traditional and folk doctors have prescribed devil’s claw for centuries to treat digestive ills, reduce fever, relieve pain and to treat certain pregnancy symptoms. (2)

Often, it is hypothesized that devil’s claw benefits originate from the valuable iridoid glucosides it contains, including harpagoside. Iridoids are anti-inflammatory compounds found mostly in plants and are bound to glucose molecules. This is why the whole compound is called an iridoid glucoside. (3) Devil’s claw root, according to the European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy (ESCOP), should contain at least one percent harpagoside.

Devil’s claw also contains useful bioflavonoids and phytosterols, which are plant-based antioxidants with antispasmodic properties (which supports the use of this supplement for digestive problems).

France has approved the marketing of devil’s claw with a claim that it is “traditionally used for symptomatic relief of painful joint disorders.” ESCOP has also approved its use to treat “painful arthritis, tendonitis, loss of appetite and dyspepsia” (acid reflux).

Harpagophytum is literally translated as “hook plant” in Greek. Growing predominantly (and originally) in Africa, devil’s claw looks as if it is literally covered in hooks. The hooks actually cover the fruit of the plant, which allows it to catch on animal fur and therefore spread its seeds.

Other traditional uses of devil’s claw include boosting heart health, relieving gout symptoms, soothing heartburn and reducing back, chest and headache pain. (4)

Devil’s Claw Benefits

1. Arthritis Relief

The most extensively researched of use devil’s claw benefits is its ability to reduce osteoarthritis symptoms.

According to a Japanese study in 2010, devil’s claw (particularly the harpagoside compound) caused a significant reduction of arthritic inflammation in a group of mice. (5)

In general, devil’s claw is accepted by many medical professionals as a “supportive treatment of degenerative, painful rheumatism.” (6) Rheumatism, or rheumatic diseases, includes diagnoses such as osteoarthritis (from wear and tear), rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune condition), lupus, ankylosing spondylitis and Sjogren’s syndrome. All of these disorders are marked by chronic inflammation and usually joint, muscle and fibrous tissue pain.

When tested on patients with various rheumatic disorders, devil’s claw seems to significantly reduce pain in the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee and back. In addition, the same study found that quality of life improved for most patients. In fact, 60 percent of whom were able to reduce or stop taking their other pain medications. (7)

Another uncontrolled trial found an improvement in pain ratings by over 22 percent and as high as 45 percent for various types of osteoarthritis pain. With only two minor adverse reactions (acid reflux and a “full” sensation) in 75 patients, the research here suggests devil’s claw extract may be beneficial for clinical treatment of arthritis, specifically of the hip or knee. (8)

In 2014, an observational study was conducted to investigate the efficacy of a supplement that includes devil’s claw, turmeric and bromelain on rheumatic pain. Results found all patients experienced a reduction in pain, especially chronic joint pain. Researchers discovered no side effects or withdrawal issues and find this three-plant complex to be a safe alternative to NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for patients with degenerative joint disorders, such as osteoarthritis. (9)

In addition to reducing pain, it’s possible that devil’s claw benefits arthritis sufferers by preventing bone loss. Although tests thus far have taken place only in lab and animal tests, there are promising results that suggest devil’s claw prohibits bone loss in inflammatory osteoporosis. (10) These results are conflicting when it comes to hormonally activated osteoarthritis. (11)

2. Might Aid in Weight Loss

Interestingly, this anti-inflammatory root may also be a novel way to lose weight. A university study conducted in Ireland found devil’s claw can help to stop or slow ghrelin (known as the “hunger hormone”) production. (12) By reducing hunger pangs, those with overeating issues may find their appetites at a level closer to average, aiding their weight loss.

Another way devil’s claw may help those with obesity is by potentially helping to prevent weight-related atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by the particular way it suppresses inflammation. (13)

3. Natural Painkiller

While it seems to be effective for arthritis pain, devil claw’s benefits for pain don’t stop there. Although it isn’t understood well, devil’s claw reduces inflammation and inflammatory pain in a variety of conditions, including acute (fast onset) pain, with few adverse effects in somewhere around 3 percent of patients. (14)

In an animal study, neuropathic pain (shooting or burning pain often the result of some type of nerve damage) and postoperative pain were reduced after 21 days of treatment with an extract of devil’s claw. (15)

Research conducted in 2001 found that devil’s claw extract given for a period of eight weeks helped to relieve chronic back pain and improve mobility in 117 patients — all of those evaluated within the study — for a period of at least six months. No serious side effects were recorded. (16)

Some sources also recommend using devil’s claw as a treatment for sciatic nerve pain, also referred to as sciatica. It should be noted, however, that no studies have been conducted on the efficacy of devil’s claw on sciatica at the time of this writing.

4. Potential Lymphoma Treatment?

While the research here is in its infancy, there is surprising evidence that devil’s claw may somehow help to impact follicular lymphoma.

In a cancer unit at a hospital in British Columbia, a doctor noticed a partial regression of one patient’s lymphoma after 10 months with no chemotherapy. The patient shared that he was taking two supplements, including devil’s claw. After hearing about this natural treatment, another patient in a support group with the first began taking devil’s claw, followed by a similar regression 11 months later, sustained for four years.

The doctor is careful here to draw conclusions, as a two-patient observation of regression is not solid scientific evidence that devil’s claw can treat or cure cancer. In some research, some 16 percent of lymphoma patients have spontaneous regression of their cancer. However, the physician found the timing curious enough to suggest more studies be done on the potential for devil’s claw to support cancer treatment for follicular lymphoma patients. (17)

Devils claw benefits - Dr. Axe5. Fights Chronic Inflammation

One of the reasons devil’s claw is so valuable is its ability to help reduce inflammation, which is at the root of most diseases.

Current research indicates that devil’s claw can help to inhibit tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), a cytokine (cell-signaling protein) that is involved in the normal inflammation that occurs in the body as it regulates the immune system. (18)

This is significant because when TNF-alpha is overactivated, chronic inflammation can occur and lead to a variety of diseases. In fact, inhibition of TNF-alpha is a major subject of study in the prevention of inflammatory diseases such as rheumatic disease, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). (19)

6. Rich in Antioxidants

Another basic way devil’s claw can help prevent disease is due to the many antioxidants it contains. According to The Institute of Biochemistry and Microbiology in Düsseldorf, Germany, devil’s claw is “particularly rich in water-soluble antioxidants.” (20)

In fact, some research suggests that some of the anti-inflammatory benefits of devil’s claw may actually be the result of these antioxidants because of the way they work hand-in-hand. (21)

7. May Aid in Digestion

Remember that I mentioned above how devil’s claw benefits include inhibition of TNF-alpha, which is a treatment consideration for inflammatory bowel disease? Inflammation has a great deal to do with digestion.

The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties of devil’s claw may be useful as a supplementary treatment for these diseases, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. (22)

8. Supports Kidney Health

Another underdeveloped area of study on devil’s claw benefits is the way it might help treat a group of kidney diseases known as glomerular diseases. These illnesses are inflammation-related and refer to diseases that injure the kidney’s tiny filters that clean the blood.

An extract of devil’s claw helped to suppress the formation of nitrites as the extract’s antioxidants acted in this lab test, suggesting to researchers that these extracts “may represent potential anti-inflammatory drugs in the treatment of glomerular inflammatory diseases.” (23)

The History of Devil’s Claw

The exact origin of devil’s claw is unknown, although it is native to southern Africa and found originally in Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Zambia, Madagascar and Zimbabwe. It was first used medicinally in Europe in 1953 to treat arthritis, liver problems, kidney and bladder issues, appetite problems and seasonal allergies.

Devil’s claw is known by a variety of folk names, including grapple plant, wood spider and harpago. These creative monikers refer to the small “hooks” on the fruit of the plant.

How to Find and Use Devil’s Claw

To reap devil’s claw benefits, the roots of the devil’s claw plant are dried and then packaged in capsule or tablet form, or used to create a liquid extract or ointment to use on the skin. Some people make devil’s claw tea to take advantage of the various effects it’s said to have.

As with all supplements, ensure you purchase devil’s claw from a reputable company with transparent ingredients and supplement facts listed. If you choose to try using it to reduce pain, you may want to try both internal (capsule/tablet) and external (ointment) forms to find what works best for you.

Possible Side Effects/Caution

There is a lack of information regarding potential side effects of devil’s claw. Most sources suggest avoiding it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding because the results are unknown. (24)

According to WebMD, people with heart problems, hypertension, low blood pressure, diabetes, gallstones or peptic ulcer disease should avoid devil’s claw. There is at least some evidence that it could affect these conditions. So if you take devil’s claw and have one of these conditions, you should be closely monitored by your health care provider.

Anecdotal reports suggest devil’s claw could increase the production of stomach acid, so if you suffer from chronic heartburn, it may be a factor to consider.

One case report in 2015 found systemic hypertension (high blood pressure) caused in a patient taking devil’s claw. (25)

Certain medications could potentially interact with devil’s claw, including medications changed by the liver, because devil’s claw may slow the liver’s breakdown of these substances. The clotting drug warfarin (brand names include Coumadin and Jantoven) may also be affected by devil’s claw.

Other medications that may interact in minor ways with devil’s claw include P-glycoprotein substrates, H2-blockers and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

Final Thoughts

  • Devil’s claw is a plant found in parts of Africa. It’s used as a natural remedy for a variety of disorders.
  • One of the iridoid glucosides in devil’s claw, known as harpagoside, is the focus of much of the research into devil’s claw benefits. Other compounds are also responsible for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
  • A fairly large body of research has been done on the ability of devil’s claw to relieve arthritis pain. Results show that it likely does relieve this pain.
  • Devil’s claw benefits may also include weight management, reducing chronic inflammation and preventing oxidative stress.
  • Devil’s claw benefits those with many types of chronic pain. Plus it has been found to be particularly effective against back pain.
  • Some less-researched possible benefits of devil’s claw include: treatment for follicular lymphoma; prevention of inflammation-induced bone loss in arthritis; and prevention or treatment of certain inflammatory kidney diseases known as glomerular diseases.
  • Devil’s claw does not generally have serious side effects. But limited evidence of its safety means you should always take it (and any supplement) under the supervision of your physician.
  • It’s possible devil’s claw may interact with certain medications. Consult your doctor before starting devil’s claw if you take other medications regularly.

Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits for allergies


Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits

Home Remedy for Allergies

Did You Know… that a centuries-old folk-remedy of fermented liquid might be one of the most effective allergy treatments available today?

The fermented liquid in question is none other than … apple cider vinegar. It offers an array of powerful health benefits, many of which you may already have heard about. If you aren’t yet using apple cider vinegar (ACV), but you suffer from seasonal allergies, read on, because you’re going to want to consider adding this liquid health tonic to your daily regimen.

apple cider vinegar benefitsLike many natural cures, apple cider vinegar benefits have not been widely researched or examined in randomized clinical trials. After all, which big drug company is going to fund a study on vinegar?

The lack of medical studies on its efficacy, however, doesn’t mean this ancient remedy isn’t effective. Since the time of Hippocrates — the “Father of Medicine” — ACV has been renowned for its curative properties. There’s a reason this powerful health booster has stood the test of time.

Earth Clinic, a trusted and extensive database of folk remedies, has been collecting data on ACV for the past 8 years.

Here are just a few of the health conditions treatable with ACV:

  • Sinus infections
  • Acne
  • High cholesterol
  • Flu
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Candida
  • Acid reflux
  • Sore throat
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Arthritis
  • Gout

Apple cider vinegar benefits range from a multitude of items. One in particular is that ACV users claim the vinegar dramatically reduces allergy symptoms from pets, food, and other environmental sources.

No matter what condition you’re treating with ACV, it comes with some extremely pleasant side effects. It’s a great metabolism booster — it can help you break down fat and lose pounds easily and permanently. It also gives your skin a healthy flush.

But in our modern era, its antibiotic and antihistamine powers may be more needed than ever because the ongoing deterioration of the planet (among other factors) is leading to an increase in the number of individuals who suffer from allergy attacks.Traditional allergy medications often have frustrating side effects, drowsiness being perhaps the most common and inconvenient offender.

According to a report presented by Dr. William E. Berger at a meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, more than 30% of all allergy patients believe their allergy medications are ineffective.

Furthermore, pharmaceuticals can be expensive … can actually increase nasal irritation … and can have dangerous side effects such as impairing one’s driving abilities and causing a mental disconnect.

Fortunately, apple cider vinegar benefits are just as effective in treating allergic reactions as over-the-counter antihistamine medications like Zyrtec, according to Melissa Gallagher, M.S., CWC, CNHP.

Gallagher, a popular and respected naturopath, holistic nutritionist, and wellness coach, says apple cider vinegar “can help cure various ailments without having to use OTC drugs or even prescriptions … [it] can address many of the reasons you would commonly make a run to your local CVS or Walgreens to buy a drug that may only mask the symptoms … the benefit of apple cider vinegar is that you can treat the cause of your ailment thereby decreasing or completely eliminating your symptoms entirely.”

An allergic reaction occurs when your body overreacts to an unfamiliar yet harmless substance (known as allergens). Allergy sufferers have abnormally sensitive immune systems, which overreact to allergens such as pollen, dust, fur, feathers and mold.

An allergic person’s body mistakenly releases histamine to fight off the intruding particles. The abundance of histamine circulating through the body subsequently signals the mucus membranes to produce all the unwanted symptoms indicative of allergies.

Chemical and natural antihistamines, such as ACV, head off your body’s abnormal response by preventing the production and release of histamines.

This consequently prevents the allergic symptoms such as:

  • Frequent sneezing
  • Nasal congestion and runniness
  • Itchy, red, swollen and/or watery eyes
  • Itchy sensation of the nose, ears, lips, mouth, and/or throat
  • Headache
  • Nosebleed
  • Cough
  • Asthma

Considering its multitude of health benefits, it’s not surprising so many people acquire a taste for ACV. Others opt for the “quick-fix” option of taking pills — but most sources say they are not as effective as consuming ACV in the form of the liquid vinegar.

This may be because research indicates that the active ingredient in ACV is contained in what’s called “The Mother” — the cloudy, nutrient-filled substance settling at the bottom of the bottle. When buying ACV, make sure to get the unpasteurized, unfiltered, unrefined variety, and check for brownish colored, tiny, cobweb “mother” floating in it as visual confirmation of the strand-like enzymes of connected protein molecules

According to ACV enthusiasts, this dark and mysterious substance is the source of curative powers and tonic-containing elements, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, acetic acid, malic acid, citric acid and lactic acid.

Adding ACV to your diet can be as simple as taking a straight shot of ACV (one teaspoon is a recommended starter dose). Since the ACV has a strong taste, make sure to chase the shot with water!

Most people agree, however, that taking small doses of ACV mixed with water is the better way — for instance, 1 teaspoon mixed with ½ liter of water taken 3 times/day.

Another option is to combine 1/8 cup of ACV with 8 oz. of water and sip this tincture throughout the day.

Some sources recommend larger doses of up to 2 tablespoons mixed in water and taken before each meal.

If the taste disagrees with you, try increasing the ratio of water to vinegar, adding honey to your concoction, or mixing it into apple juice or herbal tea instead of water.

If your stomach feels upset after taking a dose, a ¼ teaspoon of baking soda can help settle it.

If you’re unable to ingest the mixture, another allergy-relieving option might be to inhale the vapors. This can open your nasal passages, decrease mucus production, and calm allergic reactions.

Warning: Drinking and/or inhaling the fumes of this powerful, acidic substance too much or too often can actually damage the mucus membrane, so caution should be exercised not to overuse it.

Great Explanation of Fasting and its Benefits

Healing Naturally: Fasting and Elimination (opinion )


by Hesh Goldstein


The evidence throughout time supporting fasting is incredible. There was a guy back in ancient Greece named Aesculapius that said, “Instead of using medicine, fast. “Hippocrates recommended prolonged fasting instead of taking health-destroying pharmaceuticals, which is the God of modern day medicine, most of the religions in the world advocate periods of “abstinence” from food to attain physical and spiritual purity and even animals and babies, through their natural instincts, refuse to eat food when they feel ill. Yet, most people are clueless about the benefits of fasting when sick and always advise those that they care about to “Eat to keep up your strength.” During illness, there can be no worse advice to lower vitality.

When you fast there is an increase in the amount of energy available for the eliminative and cleansing process due to the absence of large amounts of food requiring digestion and assimilation, which require energy as well.

The body then is able to redirect this increased energy toward elimination of the obstructions to the vital life force in the form of toxic waste and since vitality equals the life force minus any obstructions, as they are removed higher levels of vital energy are available for more rapid elimination.

Elimination begins as soon as the first meal is missed. As the fasting proceeds, usually during the first three days and reaching its maximum by the third day, this elimination activity manifests in the appearance of a coated tongue, bad breath, headaches, muscular aches and general fatigue.

These symptoms arise due to the increase of toxins in the bloodstream being passed out of the channels of elimination. The sooner these symptoms manifest, the more toxic is the system.

Usually around the forth or fifth day a general feeling of well-being comes about.

But, and there’s always a but, this state of well-being lasts in degrees of varying intensity interspersed with periods of lack of energy and fatigue as more toxins are eliminated. At about ten days the body is able to get rid of a large amount of deep-rooted toxins and waste matter.

At that point if one experiences flulike symptoms or skin eruptions or other various eliminations, the fast is doing its job and in a short time the feeling of increased health and vigor will come back big time.

For people that have never fasted before, start with one day. Eventually, when that settles in, anywhere from three days to three weeks will be a piece of cake. When you can handle one day a couple of times, go to at least three days. From there, knock yourself out.

When fasting it’s always good to drink lots of water and freshly squeezed juices. Stay way from all the pasteurized crap that you get when you buy bottled juices and stay away from fluoridated water. We are talking about getting rid of toxins not continuing to ingest them.

Breaking the fast properly is probable more important. Remember that your body has undergone a heavy detoxification and elimination process so you want to start light and proceed slowly to heavy.

For every three days you fast you need one day of transition. Let’s say you do 10 days. Ten days equals 3 to 4 days of getting back because this process has to be a gentle process for your system. The first day should be fruits, water and fresh juices. Day 2 should be fruit, adding stewed fruits, salads, water and fresh juices. Day 3 can include soups with lentils and peas and/or a light sandwich and steamed vegetables. The more you fast the more you spread out the break-back-in.

Food for thought: you just eliminated a ton of crap from your system. Look at what put you there in the first place and decide if you really want to go back to putting back all those toxins you just got rid of.

At this point you might want to re-think what fuel you want to put in your gas tank. Remember that you are now rebuilding tissue and you should want that to be as healthy and constructive as can be.

The best would be organic, plant-based fuel. If not, it’s back to flesh and blood, GMOs, antibiotics, bovine growth hormones, MSG, aspartame, and Agent Orange food colorings, for openers.

OK, back to the break-in. Chew you food until it turns into liquid in your mouth, at which point you drink it rather than swallow it.

Remember, it’s easy to fast but a bitch to break properly. Too much too soon or too heavy too soon can create more problems than you would ever want. Think about it: you just cleaned out your system and now it’s as if you have the system of a little baby. What do you think would happen to an infant if you tried to have it ingest
something other than mother’s milk or something that was not heavily pureed? Bye, bye baby? Hell yeah! Now substitute YOU for “baby.

Understand that the tongue is considered to be the mirror of internal health as is used as a guide to the fasting length and process.

What usually happens is that the tongue becomes heavily coated during the first three days of the fast and becomes progressively clearer until the healing crisis starts, or the fast is ended. If the fast is allowed to continue until the tongue is clear and is broken gently with wholesome food, the result will be an increase in physical well-being, vitality, mental clarity, and the body will be at peace.

The type of fast determines the rate of elimination, so, in essence, it is possible to control the elimination process.

By definition, fasting is the elimination of solid food. The strictest fast is the water fast and the order of fast in degree of elimination power is:
Water fast
Citrus juice fast
Sub-acid fruit juice fast
Vegetable juice fast

While the water and citrus juice fasts are more eliminative than the sub-acid juice or vegetable juice fasts, this doesn’t mean they are more desirable in every situation. Some situations need a slower, less dramatic elimination than others and not all people can handle citrus in excess or even go one day on water alone.

When in doubt, see a Naturopath.

The following is a list of regimens that bring about eliminations of greater or lesser degrees, in that order:
Citrus fruit mono diet (only one type of fruit and its juice)
Sub-acid mono diet (i.e. apples)
Mixed fruit diet (only one fruit type per meal; no bananas – too heavy)
Raw fruit and vegetable diet
Raw vegetable mono diet (i.e. raw carrot and raw carrot juice)
Raw fruit, raw vegetables, steamed vegetables
Raw and cooked fruit and vegetables plus complex carbohydrates (not refined)
Raw and cooked fruit and vegetables, complex carbohydrates and vegetarian protein

Some reasons for fasting are:
During any acute disease
In any case of lowered vitality or general debility
During any healing crisis
Repeatedly in most chronic diseases
To clear the mind

Also, the following juice or mono diets are frequently used:
Apple juice or mono diet:
Great alkaline diet for acidic conditions like gout or other inflammatory problems.

Grape juice or mono diet:
Great for heart problems or where heavy activity has to take place during elimination. Black grapes especially used with heart conditions. Grapes are not as eliminative as other fruit juices or mono diets.

Grapefruit juice or mono diet:
Good for liver conditions, general elimination, colds or mucous conditions. Not good for arthritis, ulcers, or hyperacidity.

Orange juice or mono diet:
Oranges are not frequently advised in too great a quantity, as they tend to upset the liver. They are used primarily in mucous and lung complaints. Excess may cause inflammation and itching of the butt.

Lemon Juice:
Diluted, lemon juice and water are highly eliminative.

Carrot juice or mono diet:
Especially useful in digestive problems like colitis or ulcers. A very alkaline juice and extremely useful in all acid conditions.

Cabbage juice:
Most effective with ulcers and commonly mixed with carrot juice for this.

Onion juice and mono diet:
Excellent for any condition with excess mucus, lung complaints, sinus congestion, colds, middle ear and Eustachian tube congestion, etc.

A couple of final words:
1. It is well worth your while to enlist the aid of a Naturopath.
2. Interestingly enough the plant world heals and the flesh world sickens.
