Some leg pain may be simply uncomfortable and annoying, whereas severe pain can affect your mobility or make it difficult to put weight on your leg. Other symptoms may include weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation.
There are various causes of leg pain. Most commonly, pain is due to a cramp, muscle spasm, muscle fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, dehydration or standing for a long time.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can also help reduce pain in your leg(s). It is particularly beneficial for arthritis and gout pain. Its alkalizing effect helps dissolve uric acid crystals in the blood. Plus, it helps remove the buildup of toxins in the joints and connective tissues. In addition, it provides potassium, calcium and other essential minerals needed to ease pain and inflammation.
Application: Add 1 to 2 cups of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar to a bathtub of warm water. Soak the affected leg in the water for 30 minutes, once daily for a few days.
Also, mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water, add a little raw honey and drink it twice daily.
2. Tart Cherry Juice
If strenuous physical activity is the cause of your leg pain or muscle soreness, drink tart cherry juice. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of tart cherries help prevent and treat soft tissue injury and pain. Tart cherry juice is a safer way to treat muscle pain and inflammation as compared to over-the-counter pain relievers.
Eat ½ cup of fresh, organic tart cherries or drink 1 cup of tart cherry juice, once daily.
