Food? Drinks? or Teas? Or natural supplements? Every once in awhile I find myself popping 4-6 ibuprofen.

Is "glutamine"(sp?) a good source?

TIA.

High dose, pharmaceutical grade fish oil.

Google it, or just start here on the CrossFit boards.

Haven't taken the time to research it myself, but a climbing buddy swears by bromelain.

I have used Wobenzym N with Bromelain and it worked well with epicondylitis. Maybe it was just a great placebo, and of course I was icing a couple of times a day, but either way, it beats popping NSAIDS on a daily basis.

I got mine from amazon.com

Turmeric is supposed to be good. I like using the fish oil though.

Fish oil is the best option. Stay away from Ibuprofen and other NSAIDS. Save them for serious injuries involving swelling and pain. I hope you mean 4-6 per day and not per serving. Heh.

For food, stick to the zone.

Try Zyflamend. I also take fish oil as well though. Zyflamend has tumeric in it by the way.

Ginger!

Buy the whole raw root, cut a few little pieces off and boil it for about 7 minutes to make ginger tea (it's good iced too). Another good option is to eat pickled ginger. Just make sure it doesn't any additives and try to get unpasturized, or you can make it yourself. The tea is easy because you can make a lot at once and cheap.

I certainly would also take adequate servings of fish oil too. Tumeric is also cheap.

Other traditional anti-inflammatories include: cat's claw, and wild oregano extract among other. However, in order of the best "bang for your buck" go: fish oil, ginger, tumeric, the others.

Hey - is asprin anti-inflammatory? If so, the herbal equivalent is willow bark - contains salycilic acid. Might be helpful but hard to dose accurately in a tincture.
