Oooooh My Aching Back!

So we made it through the last blizzard of the season (?).  Around ten to twelve inches of wet snow with an icy crust on top.  Fun.

It was probably just another day in paradise for those of you with a massive honker of a snow blower.  For the rest of us with the cheaper, smaller types that had no chance in snow like this, we resorted to shoveling.

 

We’re stilling feeling it today.

 

So, out of curiosity I attempted to find the best homemade, stiff/sore muscle remedies.  Some make sense.  Some are...different.

 

Here are the top 10 home remedies for muscle pain.

According to thetop10homeremedies.com:
#1. Cold Pack
“Applying a cold pack on the affected muscle can help lessen pain and inflammation. The cold will constrict the blood vessels to reduce the flow of blood to the area.”

They say wrapping a handful of ice cubes in a thin towel….15 minutes at a crack for the first 72 hours!  Or use a bag of frozen veggies!  Personally I like mixed veggies.
After 24 hours, go to
#2.  Hot Water Soak
Oooooh yeah, with epsom salts! 20 minutes, three times a day.
Now it gets a bit more interesting and please let me know if this is part of your regimen.
#3. Tart Cherry  (is there another kind)

    Eat one and one-half cup of tart cherries after a workout to prevent muscle pain.

    You can also drink one cup of tart cherry juice, without adding any sugar, to reduce muscle inflammation and soreness.
    Mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder in one cup of milk. Heat it over a low flame. Drink this twice a day, sipping it slowly, for speedy internal healing.
