Arthritis Remedies – Natural Cures for Arthritis, Herbal Treatments

Arthritis herbal cures can more quickly help to relieve, if not eliminate, all of your arthritis symptoms, than diet alone. While it is extremely important to follow a diet low in animal products and acidity, and high in green leafy vegetable, supplementing with the following herbs can also help to provide an arthritis herbal cure.

Cayenne pepper. Cayenne pepper is one of nature’s finest hot spices, yet it ironically takes away the pain of inflammatory arthritis. It contains a substance called capsaicin, which when applied topically works partly as a counter irritant, but it also has the ability to block pain impulses with its salicylate content. Clinical trials have confirmed this plant’s value in alleviating pain and discomfort from both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.

Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that will reduce swelling and pain. Ginger can be taken as in tincture, as a capsule, as a tea or fresh. Ginger can also be cooked in foods and the anti-inflammatory properties of the ginger can improve the help of the one enjoying the food. Ginger cookies, various breads that are made with a ginger flavoring and some dishes are all beneficial.

The doctor examines you, sends you to have an X-ray taken and determines you have arthritis in your joint. It’s still in the beginning stages so he will tell you to get some aspirin., or an other Non-Steroidal-Anti-Inflammatory Drug. Aspirin?? Personally I would not want to take Aspirin.. It might help the pain, at first, but it will not do anything to stop the progress. of the arthritis. Also, aspirin might affect your stomach negatively and you could end up with an ulcer….I did not say you WILL, but why take the chance?

Some sorts of food are very supportive in treating and also in preventing arthritis. You must consume a lot of omega-3 oils, because they are extremely rich in vitamin A, which fight the inflammations and in vitamin D that helps to bone-building. The proper amount of omega-3 can be obtained from all oily fish, like halibut or salmon. Also you can eat a teaspoon of cod liver oil a day and thus supply you the omega-3 necessities. But try to use it moderately, since the excessive consume increases the bleeding problems.

One of the best natural remedies for arthritis is to eat an anti-inflammatory diet. This includes foods that are rich in fiber and vitamins, such as leafy green vegetables and whole grains. Salmon is a fish that is loaded with fatty fish oil that is also anti inflammatory. Because arthritis causes the joints to swell, an anti-inflammatory diet is one of the best ways that you can control this condition. And not only will this type of diet be good for your arthritis, but it will also be good for your heart as well.
