You’ve probably experienced a muscle cramp at one point of your life. It’s an involuntary contraction of the muscle that can be unbelievably painful. You’ll likely feel like you cannot do anything about the situation.
Muscle cramps can affect people of all ages and lifestyles. Cramps often occur in the lower leg area, but they may also happen on the arms, feet, and other parts of the body. Tight muscles, extreme heat and insufficient hydration are the common causes of muscle cramps. It’s a very common problem, and more often than not, it does not really indicate a serious condition.
Whatever the cause of your muscle cramps, it is possible to find an all-natural remedy that can help reduce the pain. Here are our suggestions that can help you find all-natural relief. Don’t forget to ask for the opinion of your trusted doctor before starting any kinds of treatment.
Remember RICE? This treatment is effective for various kinds of aches and pains. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. This can help numb the pain and calm the affected muscles without using painkillers and other synthetic substances.
Muscle cramps can also be caused by lack of nutrition. Apple cider vinegar contains calcium and potassium, which are helpful in preventing cramps. If you are always experiencing cramps, you can drink a mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar, honey and water everyday.
Don’t forget to drink enough water, especially if you do a lot of energy-consuming physical activities. Make sure to drink a lot of water before and after your workout as well. Try to avoid sugary juices and sports drinks that are packed with chemicals. Try coconut water if you want something a bit sweet but all-natural and refreshing.
Mustard is said to help relieve cramps because it contains a fair amount of Magnesium, which is known to help with cramps. There are people who claim that two teaspoons of mustard works miraculously in helping eliminate the pain. It is a safe and affordable way to deal with the pain.
