Natural Remedies To Help Relieve Arthritis Pain

black-man-massage

Arthritis is a common joint disorder that can affect one or multiple joints. A joint, which moves body parts connected by its bones, is an area in the body where two bones meet. Arthritis is not a disease and refers to joint pain, when inflammation occurs in the joint(s). While there are many types of arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are the primary ones.

 

OA is the slow deterioration of cartilage in the joints and RA is an autoimmune disorder, in which the immune system attacks the body’s tissues. Arthritis can occur in people of all ages, sexes, and races, and it is the leading cause of disability in America. While it is more common in women, it primarily occurs when people get older.

 

What Causes Arthritis?

Arthritis occurs when there is a reduction of cartilage in a specific joint. Cartilage is the connective tissue in your joints that absorbs pressure and shock during movement or when stress is put on the joints. Regular wear and tear of cartilage leads to OA, but an infection, which occurs in the joint, can also lead to OA. If you have a history of arthritis, your chances of having arthritis increase. RA occurs when the immune system attack’s the body’s tissues. This affects synovium, a tissue that produces fluid that keeps the cartilage healthy and lubricates the joints. Genetics can also increase one’s risk of developing RA.

  • Family History
  • Age (although this depends on the person)
  • Previous Joint Injury
  • Infection in the Joint
  • Your Gender (women are more susceptible to Arthritis than men)
  • Obesity
  • Immune System Dysfunction
  • Abnormal Metabolism

 

Natural Remedies For Arthritis:

 

Weight Loss:

Weight loss is an effective, although not necessarily the easiest, way to diminish symptoms of arthritis. Eliminating processed foods, sugar, alcohol, salt, meat, dairy, and genetically modified foods from your diet is a good way to start. Switching to a plant-based diet that consists of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and whole grains like barley or buckwheat can help you lose weight. It’s also important to get the right amount of omega-3 fatty acids and anti-inflammatory foods in your diet. Accompany your diet with easy workouts that don’t put too much stress on the joints (biking and swimming are great options). After losing 10-20 pounds, symptoms should reduce.

 

Acupuncture:

Many people with arthritis find that acupuncture aids their symptoms. While it doesn’t work for everyone, it can help to relieve pain and inflammation in the affected joint(s).

 

Hot & Cold Treatments:

Using hot and cold treatments can dramatically affect how your joints feel. Hot showers and baths, especially in the mornings, help ease the stiffness in the joints. Applying an ice pack to the affected joint can also help reduce pain. If you have a hot pad or hot water bottle, alternating from hot to cold treatments can help benefit you.

 

Find Ways To Relax:

Meditation or other relaxation exercises can help arthritis because it reduces stress levels. Those with arthritis and depression were helped the most by meditation. Similarly, getting massages helps move the fluid in the body and loosen the joints. Massages also help people with arthritis establish a better range of motion.

    Q: I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) about 10 years ago. I have used the medical drugs to no avail. I fell and fractured my tibia in 2005 and had a knee replacement in 2007. My ankles, knees, wrists and hands stay swollen with much stiffness in my legs, knees, ankles and hands. Additionally, I have gained weight. I would much rather not move around due to much pain in my knees and ankles. What do you recommend I do to get myself back into a healthy condition?

    A:

    I suggest you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. After this kit, perform a daily regimen of: JOINT FORMULA, MSM SULFUR, HEADACHE AND PAIN FORMULA, and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD (3 capsules each of each formula spread out throughout the day, not all together).

    Q: Hello. This is my first time emailing you. I am a 24 year old African American female. I have a younger sister who is 17. She has had health issues every since I can remember. As a baby she had asthma but grew out of it. She has also suffered from allergies to things such as pollen and ragweed as well. But at the age of 9 she woke up one morning totally unable to move and her joints appeared swollen and red. She has never been diagnosed with anything but the symptoms have been treated with an array of different drugs. As time progressed she would randomly continue to get joint swelling and stiffness in her arms legs and hips. Doctors have tested her for lupus and arthritis and test results still say she has none of the above. She suffers also from periodic urinary tract infections, ulcerations of the mouth and fatigue. She recently was told that she was suffering also from a stomach emptying disorder and her body was having a difficult time absorbing nutrients. Just this week she had extreme pain in her upper abdomen and the doctor said it was an enlarged spleen. They did blood work and it turns out that her pancreas levels are off the charts. I kind of hopped all over the place and I left a lot of things out. But do you have any clue what may be going on or what she could do to help her improve her overall quality of life and finally be pain free? I also left out that recently she has started losing hearing in her left ear. What does this all mean?

    A:

    Please consider scheduling a 1-hour health consultation (only $100) so as to get at the root of all these problems. She's too young to be going through all of this. Time just won't allow for a detailed written response here. However, I will suggest she perform the FULL BODY DETOX as she sounds pretty toxic. It's good she may start at a young to better her health. She doesn't have to suffer!

    Q: I was diagnosed with lupus 2 years ago and looking back, I see how I opened myself to contract the dis-ease. I have been symptom and medication free since October 2007, due to a major lifestyle change. STRESSFREE!!! The joints in my hands and feet are still paining me, especially my feet (no cute shoes for me). Although I prefer to be barefoot, (maybe I should move to a warmer climate), I need to get rid of these pains in my joints. I would like to know what could be the message that I'm obviously missing and is manifesting as joint pain?

    A:



    The joints deal with bending and the metaphysical message the joints convey is being too rigid, too stiff or stubborn. Learn to bend in many respects. Let go! Go with the flow. This applies to some area of your life (life issues).

    Q: I'm writing to you to ask your advise as to what would constitute a beneficial regimen,(SP?), for my 27 year old nephew who suffers from psoriatic arthritis and is currently on a program of methatrexate infusions every eight weeks. His lifestyle is fairly hectic as he's hoping to receive a professorship in the next two years and he is currently working all the time in a physics lab and continuously has things other than his personal care on his mind. For these reasons I've decided to try and find some way to possibly help him hopefully reverse this terrible condition. I've read about your Full body detox and was a bit disappointed when reviewing the conditions which it remedies as it listed neither psoriasis nor arthritis. With his condition uric acid levels are extremely elevated as in gout and I was wondering if a course of medical grade charcoal would help to adsorb the U.A. Any help you could offer in the way of advise would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    Just because we don't list EVERY ailment the FBD helps to help mean doesn't mean the Full body detox doesn't. Of course it works on psoriasis and arthritis. Read some of our FREE health articles on our site! There is much help for any condition here at Dherbs.Com! You can heal from ANY condition as long as you BELIEVE you can be healed!
