Peppermint. A famous antispasmodic for digestive cramping and more.

Some of these you can use in tea, some you will find in ointments and dietary supplements. You can put them in your favorite smoothie or add to salads....but this list doesn't include my very favorite natural pain reliever though... that is dark chocolate! If you want the health effect of cocoa without having sugar and fat you can sprinkle organic raw cocoa nibs on your fruit salad.
