There are several natural health products available to treat pain. Many products have anti-inflammatory effects such as bromelain and cat's claw. Natural products that have antidepressant effects such as 5-THP, L-tryptophan, and St. John's wort, may also be useful as part of a pain management plan. Other products that may be helpful include avocado, glucosamine sulfate, and S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe).
