Foods That Fight Joint Pain & Inflammation:
Herbal remedies for arthritis pain:
Aloe vera, while many people use aloe vera for treating small skin abrasions, such as sunburn, it may also help with joint pain.
People have long used ginger in traditional medicine to treat nausea, but you can also use it for RA, OA, and joint and muscle pain.
Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory. Turmeric is often taken on an ongoing basis for those suffering with a variety of pains. 2-4 capsules are taken twice a day. Alternately, a teaspoon of turmeric can be added to a mug full of warm milk. A sprinkle of black pepper helps to potentate the turmeric.More studies into the safety and effectiveness of turmeric are needed.
Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine practitioners may prescribe turmeric as part of a formula with other ingredients.
A qualified and licensed herbal medicine practitioner may be able to prescribe a formula containing turmeric.
Home Remedies for Joint Problems:
Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar, taken as an internal tonic, reduces pain and inflammation due to its alkalizing effect on the body. It contains nutrients that support body functions as well. For arthritis and joint pain, 2-3 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar can be added to a glass of water and consumed daily. Apple cider vinegar can be applied topically for acute joint discomfort. Soak a cloth in apple cider vinegar and apply to the joint of concern. Wrap plastic around the cloth and secure with an ace bandage. The apple cider vinegar bandage can be worn overnight. This method is especially useful for pain caused by strains and gout.
Castor Oil :
Castor oil is not taken internally but massaged into painful joints. It relieves inflammation and pain, sometimes as well as oral pain relievers! Castor oil can be messy, so use old clothes and towels to avoid getting castor oil on clothing and furniture.
Borax contains boron, which is a necessary element in the joints. Boron also helps the body to balance other minerals and hormones. Studies have found that boron is needed for strong bones. Dietary Changes Sugar and processed foods aggravate inflammation and pain. They also fill the body up so more quality foods are not consumed at levels needed to provide necessary nutrients to the body. Bone broth contains concentrated amounts of gelatin and the necessary minerals for joint health. Look for organic bone broths or make your own!
Hydrotherapy involves alternating warm and cool applications to painful joints. The cool applications help to reduce inflammation. The warm applications promote circulation and repair. Use two bowls of water; one warm and one cool. (NOT hot and ice cold!) Soak a cloth in the cool water and apply it to the painful joint for 1 minute. Remove the cool cloth and replace it with the warm cloth. Hydrotherapy can be repeated several times a day. Epsom Salt:
Epsom salt soaks provide magnesium and sulfur to the joints. Add ½ cup Epsom salt to a basin of water and soak the painful joint. For fresh injuries, use cool water, otherwise use warm water.
