Natural Treatment for Painful Arthritis (BLS Ointment or Balm)

Garlic, Ginger& Pepper
Painful Arthritis? Looking for a natural treatment for its pain? I have here an alternative treatment for you and i’ll share with you how you can prepare it at your home so that you’ll have a ready treatment when you need one.

Have you heard about BLS Ointment? It is applied externally to the affected area 3x a day, and it relieves the pain caused by arthritis. BLS refers to its main ingredients, such as Bawang (garlic), Luya (ginger) and Sili (red pepper, preferably, “siling labuyo”. Garlic has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties while both ginger and red pepper has anti-inflammatory characteristics that can help relieve muscle and joint pains. .  I used to prepare it for my mother when she had her pains due to arthritis and according to her, it helped. 

           How to prepare a BLS Ointment?  Its simple.

Ingredients:  garlic, ginger, red pepper and oil (preferably virgin coco oil or olive oil)


·         Mince the garlic, ginger and red pepper
·         Measure ½ cup of garlic, ½ cup of ginger and ½ cup of red pepper
·         Mixed all the ingredients and add 1 ½ cup of oil
·         In a slow fire, heat the mixture for 10 minutes.
·         Store in a glass container together with the mixture your BLS ointment.

Optional: To make your Ointment into a Balm, here’s the procedure:

·       Strain, to separate the oil from the solid mixture
·   Once again, heat the solution in a slow fire and add Wax. Bee hive wax is preferred.  But in its absence, you can use a white candle instead. 
·    Just add wax, little by little.  To know that it is the right amount, when the wax melted, test by dropping a mixture in a plate or saucer.  Check when it when it's cold. Test using your fingers. it must be balm-like.

Arthritis refers to inflammation of a joint or a state characterized by inflammation of the joints. Inflammation is a process in which the body's white blood cells and chemicals help protect us from infection and foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses.  Its symptoms can be either one or a combination of the following: 

·         Redness
·         Swollen joint that's tender and warm to the touch
·         Joint pain
·         Joint stiffness
·         Loss of joint function

The cause of arthritis is not fully known, yet, can we still do something to prevent it?  Of course, we can!  Maintaining proper weight (obesity added strain to joints), regular joint exercises, proper diet (excess protein can increase your uric acid) and strengthening immune system can help a lot.

Prevention is better than cure. If symptoms persist, see your doctor!
