(NaturalNews) Over the counter pain remedies such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen have been the go-to choices for killing pain and/or inflammation fast. But they have their vast array of side effects.

Aspirin has been linked to gastrointestinal problems and ulcers as well hemorrhaging and strokes. Tylenol contains acetaminophen, which is toxic to the liver.

Ibuprofen is an NSAID (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug). Advil and Motrin are common OTC ibuprofen drugs that create side effects such as nausea and dizziness, hypertension, DNA damage, hearing loss, and miscarriage.

Synthetic drugs may offer fast pain relief, but they are risky. There are many effective pain relieving and anti-inflammatory natural remedies that are effective after time, but below are some that offer fast pain relief.

Five natural and fast pain relief solutions

(1) Kratom an herb that is both fast and natural for pain relief is unknown to most of us. Natural News readers were only very recently introduced to it by Jonathan Benson's article. (http://www.naturalnews.com/035480_kratom_pain_relief_herb.html)

Kratom has an interesting history from its early times as an herb to reduce pain, increase energy, and lift spirits among Indonesians. Many who were hooked on opium used kratom to help them endure opium withdrawal easily.

According to legend, that's why it was banned there. It was interfering with the opium trade. Maybe so, maybe not.

The fact that it was banned in its country of origin, as well as the fact that kratom promotes a good feeling that helps overcome depression with a strong coffee buzz drew the attention of U.S. drug enforcement officials. It's actually banned in the state of Indiana.

But it is available online in all other states and in most other countries. You can find out much more about it here: http://www.kratomassociation.org/

(2) Devil's Claw is a South African herb that has been popular in Europe for couple hundred years. It has proven effective as an anti-inflammatory for arthritis, tendonitis, and muscle pain.

The German Commission E, Germany's version of our FDA, has approved it as a non-prescription or OTC medicine. It's not medically recognized by the FDA, but its legality is not an issue currently.

(3) Cannabis, unfortunately, has a legal issue. It has been clinically proven to relieve pain rapidly. It too has the side effect of altering mood if inhaled. But there are other methods of using cannabis, known to most as marijuana, that don't get you high.

If you are fortunate to live in a state that permits medical marijuana and get approved for a medical marijuana card, you'll have access to a pain remedy that works well immediately for even agonized chemo patients and glaucoma patients suffering severe eye pain and headaches.

(4) Turmeric/curcumin is without controversy or legal issues. Turmeric's active ingredient, curcumin, taken properly will offer faster pain relief from inflammation than turmeric alone.

High dose curcumin enteric coated capsules with piperine, black pepper's active ingredient that increases nutrient absorption, are excellent for getting past the stomach intact. Enteric coating protects capsules from deteriorating in the early stomach phase of digestion, allowing the ingredients to get into the lower intestines intact.

Or you can empty a regular capsule of curcumin with piperine into a spoonful of good coconut or olive oil and ingest that. If it lacks piperine, add black pepper.

(5) Arnica with DMSO combines a homeopathic topical cream with DMSO as an adjunct to give fast pain relief from injury, arthritis, or sciatica. Adding DMSO speeds and deepens arnica's topically applied efficacy while adding some of its own pain and inflammatory relief. (http://www.naturalnews.com/037485_DMSO_inflammation_muscle_pain.html)
