Arthritis Natural Treatments That Work
Arthritis natural treatments can help strengthen the immune system, prevent the spread and severity of the disease as well as provide safe relief from painful inflammatory symptoms. This is good news considering the serious side effects of “painkillers” like Aleve, Vioxx, Bextra and Celebrex.
Most prescribed arthritis medications neither provide safe, long term pain relief nor strengthen the immune system. Therefore, a more holistic approach is now being taken, especially as more evidence proves diet and lifestyle changes can both help prevent and provide relief of symptoms. As a result, more people with arthritis are living happier, healthier lives.
Though the cause is still unknown, most experts believe it’s connected to a breakdown in immunity. The immune system is either too weak to prevent viruses from attacking joints or has lost the discretionary power to recognize the difference between viruses and healthy cells and, therefore, destroys both.
If not managed, arthritis can grow progressively more severe causing permanent damage and limited range of motion. Rheumatoid arthritis can actually begin in one joint and spread throughout the entire body. So, it’s important to take preventive action at the first sign of pain, stiffness or swelling of joints. Both safe relief for pain and inflammation and a natural way to strengthen the immune system are necessary.
The key to arthritis management is basically the same as it is for preventing any and all degenerative diseases. Be healthy and fit by exercising moderately, eating right, taking supplements, avoiding injury and reducing stress, fatigue and depression.
Moderate exercises such as walking, swimming and yoga are excellent ways to strengthen bones and muscles and improve mobility with a minimum of stress. Exercise, along with a healthy diet, will also help you reach and maintain your optimum weight. Excess weight puts stress on joints and is one of the major contributing factors to arthritis.
To be as healthy as possible, change your eating program to include more organic whole grains, colorful fruits and vegetables (for immune building carotenoids) and fresh wild fish such as salmon (nature’s richest source of anti-inflammatory omega 3 oils). Also, cut back on red meat. People who eat red meat daily have twice the risk of arthritis as those who eat meat no more twice a week.
Nutritional supplements are recommended by the American Medical Association. Whole food nutritionals are essential to good health for everyone - especially people dealing with degenerative arthritis. For the best results in natural whole food supplements, go to www.feel-better.info.
