Alternative Health Remedies to Try

Suffering from an ache or pain that doesn't seem to let up with regular pain killers? In our latest blog on the Chemist.co.uk site, we're sharing with you some alternative remedies you can try when all else seems to fail. Read on for our top tips...


A good, old-fashioned massage can't be underestimated when you're battling with aches, pains and strains, but it's vital you visit a licenced professional. Visit someone who isn't qualified and they could end up doing more harm than good. Why not also try some self-massage techniques in between visits to a masseur? You may be able to relieve those aches yourself once you know how.

Try the tennis ball technique explained here; it's believed to be great for neck pain, particularly, which is ideal for those who suffer from aches as a result of hunching over a computer all day.

Rescue Remedy

Available in an oil (pictured) or a spray, Rescue Remedy is widely used to comfort and reassure, which means it's perfect for pre-exam or driving test nerves. It can also be used when you're feeling anxious in general.

The alternative remedy is a go-to product for people who need some support or reassurance and it may just help you when you need it most. Grab a bottle here on the site and give it a try; the spray version is available via the link above for under £9.



Essential Oils

According to the Healing Scents site, there is evidence to suggest that aromatic oils were used by the Egyptians as early as 4500 BCE - who knew?! After becoming renowned for their knowledge of cosmetology, ointments and oils,  cedar and myrrh were later used in the embalming process and traces of these have been found on mummies today.

Of course, essential oils have much more 'every day' uses in 2019, from helping you sleep, to replacing candles and reed diffusers when it comes to ensuring your home smells beautiful.

If you're considering trying essential oils, there are plenty to choose from here on the Chemist.co.uk site, with this set of home relaxation oils being a great place to start. At under £15, the  balancing oil dropper set features all the oils to cleanse and bring a little bit of calm and relaxation to your home. For that reason, it makes a great gift - and because it brings relaxation to your abode, it'll also help you feel much calmer. Great news for those of you who suffer from anxiety.

If you're struggling to sleep, pop this lavender and tea tree oil on your bedside cabinet. That way, it's to hand when you want to encourage a deeper, more restful sleep. Known for its relaxing effect, lavender is also thought to relieve tension, enhance blood circulation and assist respiratory problems. Give this paraben-free oil a go and see what you think. It may save you reaching for the Nytol.
