When I had my back injury inflammation was a big thing due to the trauma in my back, therefore, I looked at Natural remedies for this. I did not want to take muscle relaxants and be on Ibuprofen forever. One thing I found really worked and I always have some on hand in case of flare-ups, is a product called Wobenzym. Before adding any supplements of any kind please check with your medical practitioner for any contra indications.
It is totally natural and is good for joints if you have problems in that area also. When I was in so much pain I really got the benefits on Wobenzym, a friend of mine who suffered from bad Sciatica, referred this to me.
So in conclusion, if you want to stay healthy and reduce your risk of disease you want to incorporate anti-inflammatory products into your everyday life.
