In brief: Morphine

Morphine is an alkalois derived from the sap of papaverum somniferum - the common poppy.
Not only is it natural, it is the gold standard against which other narcotics are measured. The poppy actually produces many other narcotics. Only a few narcotics are synthetic.

In brief: Not Sure

If you're asking if there is a non-narcotic substance as potent and effective as a narcotic for pain control, i'm not aware of any.
But, there are internet blogs offering anecdotal evidence for such substances. They can't be relied upon for validity or efficacy.
