When pain holds you hostage: natural solutions

One of the most difficult things many people live with is the “conscience” that they have of their limbs; when their attention is focused on a knee in particular, for example. Day and night, the pain is overwhelming, paralyzing them, undermining their quality of life. Maybe this has happened to you?

Sharp pain, chronic pain

Whether it is a sharp pain, provoked by a false movement, a fall or a small accident, or chronic pain caused by arthritis, osteoarthritis or a serious accident, the battle is the same. We suffer, quality of life is affected and regular daily tasks become a burden and a source of anxiety. Our painful condition makes us decline invitations and refuse to participate in outdoor activities, for example, or to sit on the sidelines rather than participate in a friendly sporting match… Each decision is taken in consideration of the following question: “Will my pain be aggravated by this activity?”

Fortunately, there are currently products available that may help make these activities more accessible and easier to bear. After many years of study and research in articular health, Land Art has developed a complete range of products to help those that suffer from strong and chronic pain associated with the osteo-musculo-articular system.

Collagen, the “glue” of the body

It is said that collagen is the “glue” that holds us together. The integrity of bones, skin, joints, nails, hair and teeth are all a result of our bodies adequate production of collagen. It protects conjunctive tissues and heals wounds. However, there comes a time, in our thirties, when the intrinsic production of collagen decreases. Progressively, the risk of injury and pain increases. Nutrition is directly related to joint health, therefore, we should choose an alkaline diet rich in fruits and vegetables as well as whole grains. High-quality, good fats will also be a smart choice to ensure the control of the inflammation process within the body. In order to prevent articular degeneration, it is essential to get a supplement of high-quality collagen, which is highly hydrolyzed, to ensure assimilation and improve articular reconstruction.


When pain becomes a preoccupation, it is important to get some good anti-inflammatories to promote recovery and healing. This is why Land Art offers the same proven collagen formula with added plants and natural anti-inflammatory elements. COLLAG-N Extra contains Devil’s Claw, Glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin, wintergreen and magnesium. Cette reputable formula is highly effective and will make your day easier as it acts rapidly to relieve pain while promoting healing and the reconstruction of joints.

Cette formule reconnue et hautement efficace rend le quotidien beaucoup plus agréable puisqu’elle agit rapidement sur la douleur tout en favorisant la guérison ainsi que la reconstruction des articulations.


When we practice sports and our muscles become sore, it is recommended to massage the painful area with essential oils. They are the champions when it comes to dealing with inflammation and pain. The main ingredient in Reflex, Gaultheria, also known as wintergreen, contains 90% of methyl salicylate, that, once applied to the skin, transforms into salicylic acid, the same active metabolite present in Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). – passeport santé

The Reflex topical spray also contains essential oils of camphor, menthol, eucalyptus and cloves. Some have a cooling effect while others will generate heat. All together, they are the perfect mix which is the most effective for calming tense muscles and sore joints.


Herbaflex is a powerful anti-inflammatory formula that is plant-based, 100% vegan. The three main plants included are turmeric, black cohosh and burdock. There is also malic acid in the ingredient list, an element largely used, among others, to handle pain caused by fibromyalgia.

Turmeric’s reputation is already well established when it comes to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Some say it also has anti-carcinogenic properties. This rhizome, originally from India, isn’t only effective to treat arthritis but is also used to relieve symptoms of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Black cohosh, also effective against inflammation, prevents the degradation of collagen. Whereas burdock, which is an anti-inflammatory and depurative (eliminates toxins through the kidneys), is traditionally used in phytotherapy to soothe pain associated with rheumatism.

The pleasant taste of Herbaflex makes taking this supplement much easier. You just need to add your dose to a smoothie, or add it to a glass of hot water and enjoy it as a warm tea.

An adequate lifestyle combined with taking quality supplements can make a world of difference for those that must, unfortunately, deal with pain, temporarily or chronically. A proud Québécois company for nearly 30 years, Land Art is considered a leader in the production of liquid health supplements. The articular range of Land Art products is not only efficient, it is affordable and available in all of the established health product stores, or directly at landart.ca.
