What can be used for general aches and pains (from age) instead of pain relievers and NSAIDs?<br><br>
There are some like Advil and Aleve that are too irritating to the stomach. Glucosamine and condroitan are pretty pricey.<br><br>
Any suggestions.<br><br>

I've been wondering about this myself as well as something to help my kids when they have headaches, etc. I don't want to use motrin, tylenol, etc.<br><br>
Hopefully, someone has some ideas. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
