Arthritis Home Remedies
stretch for strength and mobility -
Yoga is a good exercise for Arthritis sufferers. Yoga teaches
movement with proper joint alignment, which helps bring deformed
joints back to normal position as appropriate muscles are lengthened
Management - It is a fact that
if you are hurting and you tense up that you hurt more so avoiding
stress will help in aggravating pain. Learn to relax.
not Race - People who suffer from
some kind of arthritis or joint pain tend to do all their duties
on days they are feeling at their best. All that does is make
you tired and sore the following day. Pace yourself and don't
race to get your jobs done on only days you feel fine. Do a
little each day.
Ointment - There are many ointments
for arthritis. Deep Heat is a good one. Arthritic ointment works
well if applied at night before going to bed. This relaxes your
joints which helps in giving you a better nights sleep.
Aerobics - Arthritis
pain is significantly reduced in the water, and you become
much more flexible in water than you are in air. The beginning
exercise techniques are easy for anyone to follow. They consist
of waving, walking, and bending motions performed in chest-deep
water. The more advanced movements look like aquatic dance
steps designed to take advantage of water's natural resistance
and gentle buoyancy.
Ice to Prevent pain - Ice packs
or even ice cubes in a plastic bag or frozen peas placed on
the arthritic area will help prevent pain. Apply for 15 to 20
minutes, then remove for 10 to 15 minutes. This can be repeated
for hours at a time.
Heat to Reduce Pain - Use a
heat pack to help reduce the arthritic pain. When joints become
hot, swollen, and tender, heat is the best solution, applying
cold could make joints very painful.
off Addictive Medication -
Sleeping pills, tranquilizers, and narcotic painkillers
can become part of life for a person with arthritis. Although
these drugs do work in helping to live with arthritic pain,
they create more problems than they solve. Replacing these drugs
with alternative forms of therapy will be better for you in
the long term.
- Omega-3 fatty acids found
in fish has been around in the form of cod-liver oil for years.
1 teaspoon per day of cod-liver oil may help alleviate symptoms
of rheumatoid arthritis by providing the body with substantial
amounts of vitamins D and A. Vitamin D is important for bone
growth, while vitamin A may have anti-inflammatory effects.
An alternative to cod-liver oil is a low-fat diet that includes
fish such as mackerel or salmon, which contain omega-3's.
- Work the muscles that
are attached to the tendons leading to your painful joints.
For example, if you have arthritis in your hands, then work
the forearms from the wrists to elbows, using a compression
technique. To do this, use either the heel of your hand, your
thumb, or your elbow to press down on the muscle and hold it
for several seconds, then release. For arthritis in the ankle
or foot, work the calf and front of the leg.
C - Vitamin C is a good natural
alternative for people suffering with rheumatoid arthritis.
The toxicity of vitamin C is virtually zero, and if a person
took about 500 milligrams spread throughout the day, which
is not excessive, that would get enough of the vitamin through
to do some good." Before trying vitamin C therapy, get an
okay from your doctor.
to Avoid - avoid foods
from the nightshade family and all milk products. The nightshade
plant family consists of white potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant,
tobacco, and all peppers except black pepper. Also cut back
on oil-containing products such as salad dressings, fried foods,
and margarine's. These foods contain high levels of omega-6
fatty acids, which have been proven to cause inflammation in
those with rheumatoid arthritis.

Since August 06 I have been taking 1 TBSP Certo fruit crystals
and stirred it into 1/2 cup of grape juice each day. I missed one
day and noticed half way during the day that I had extreme pain
in my knee. It really works perfect for me, after seven days the
extreme pain had gone. I stopped taking arthritis pain killers,
ibruprofen etc because they were hurting my stomach. I hope this
remedy can help others. It was given to me by a 75 year old nurse,
Dr Gott's who told me to try it and promised that it would ease
