People use ibuprofen every day to deal with pain and reduce swelling/inflammation and fever.
Some herbalists view inflammation as a repair reaction by the body, and it should be allowed to continue until the cause is removed. After the cause is addressed, you can then use herbal inflammatory medications. This makes a lot of sense.
Andrea of Frugally Sustainable shares a recipe for herbal anti-inflammatory capsules. This is for adults only. The recipe uses 6 different herbs in powdered form. Andrea includes dosages.
Also please be sure to read her warnings. There are people who should not take these herbal pills. She also recommends consulting with your doctor before using any herbal medications.
