On a recent Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz talked about natural remedies instead of taking prescription medications. One big area he focused on was pain. With the amount of prescription pain killers being taken, this was a good category to have an alternative to. What did he recommend? California Poppy.
California Poppy for Pain
The top medications for pain are Percocet or Vicodin. Dr. Oz had on Alternative Medicine Expert, Bryce Wylde. Instead of these medications, he suggested California Poppy Seed. What is California Poppy? California Poppy Seed is non-addictive (a great reason to take it!) and a powerful painkiller that acts as an analgesic. This natural alternative tells the brain to increase opiate receptors in order to decrease the pain.
