    What are some natural anti-inflammatories I can take to reduce swelling in my injured knee?

    Over the counter anti-inflammatories upset my stomach too much.  Are there some natural remedies I can take instead?

    Turmeric extract is very good to quell inflammation. It's in Zyflamend by New Chapter and Inflama-Rest by Source Naturals, along with a collection of other anti-inflammatories.

      I forgot to mention Omega-3 oils, especially fish oil. I just visited the chiropractor and that's what he prescribed for some bursitis. It is working.

    A regular diet incorporating Ginger, bittermelon, cabbage rather than a remedy remedy... Like a mini lifestyle change to fit your body.

    In India natural remedies are very common. For all sorts of swellings and inflammations we use bottle gourd with a pinch of salt and turmeric boiled and eaten along with the soup. Bottle gourd is also a very effective anti allergic food.

    Apart from medicine, why don't you try acupuncture, which could help your injured knee.

    bromelain has anti inflammatory properties, must be taken in quercitin, bromelain complex- see my article on allergies. Red tart cherries also have pain relieving properties, eat often. I use dried ones, usually in with raisins, or in the produce section of the grocery store, with other dried fruits. Dgl (deglycyrrhizinated licorce)
    380mg 1-4 caps prior to meals, 3 times a day. Use only treated licorice, as untreated has been found to raise blood pressure. Available thru amazon.com/ vitamin shoppe. Magnesium and fish oil also have anti-inflammatory properties.
