Are you looking for ways to reduce joint pain? Let’s face it – Pain Sucks. For a chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) sufferer, pain is just like an annoying friend who sticks around all the time and won’t go away. Even worse, that friend likes to spend most time with you first thing in the morning when you’ve just woken up.

 

If you’re suffering with RA then it’s important to know a bunch of great techniques to reduce joint pain without using drugs. Many of these techniques you will never hear from your Rheumatologist, since they have no schooling in nutrition or holistic healing. They are good at giving you pills, which you need to take if you’ve exacerbating your conditions through poor diet and lifestyle.

 

Rheumatoid Arthritis is one of those diseases that can scare the life out of people. Doctors tell you there is no cure and that you must go on RA drugs immediately to ‘catch the disease early’ and you’ll typically be on drugs for life.

 

Clint Paddison, an ex-RA sufferer, certainly took objection to this and spent 5 years piecing information together and working out what causes this disease and how to stop it! After finally achieving perfect blood test results and getting off all medication he has the following conclusions about RA:

 

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that arises due to wide range of contributing factors in the digestive system. These include a perforated intestinal lining (‘leaky gut’), an overgrowth of negative microforms (such as yeast and bad bacteria) and too few health bacteria (probiotics), a diet too high in acid-forming foods, a depleted intestinal mucosa and low resources of enzymes.

 

As a result, folks with RA commonly have food allergies which trigger their RA and are often unaware of the viscous cycle. To make matters worse, almost all NSAIDs (non-steroid anti-inflammation drugs) used for RA cause more damage to the gut wall. One of these drugs, DMARDS alter the disease activity, but do nothing to help its cause, and the side effects are numerous.

 

Here are some natural ways to reduce joint pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis as suggested by Clint Paddison (an ex-RA sufferer):

 

  1. Do not eat sugar

All forms of simple sugars feed negative microforms in your intestines. This includes yeast and bad bacteria. By eating sugar you are allowing the proliferation of these tiny cultures that are crowding out your ‘healthy’ bacteria (sometimes called ‘probiotics’) which are one of the most under- appreciated components of our wellbeing.

 

All forms of simple sugars found in candy, cake, soda’s etc must be avoided. If you are truly hard-core about wanting to get results, then also avoid fruit for a period of time. Fruit is not essential to the diet as long as you get the same (or more) nutrition from other sources. Green leafy veggies below are the ultimate in nutritional sources

 

  1. Stop eating after 6pm

 

Sound like something your mum would tell you? Well mum was right. Even for a healthy person, digestion places the biggest burden on the body’s resources. When you have RA you have a depleted amount of enzymes in your body.

 

Enzymes are all of the catalysts that make all the cellular activity in your body work and function properly. Without enzymes you couldn’t breath, think, move or read this sentence.

 

From an RA perspective, we desperately need enzymes to break down our food into small particles to prevent larger, undigested molecules to enter our bloodstream through our ‘leaky gut’.

 

When we stop eating after 6pm we reduce the burden on the body and allow our digestive enzymes to be converted into metabolic enzymes to repair, heal and energise the rest of our body. I suggest you make friends with gentle hunger.

 

  1. Drink copious amounts of water

 

Water is the basis of life for the human body. Your muscles are 75% water, your blood is 82% water, your lungs are 90% water and your brain is 76% water. Even your bones are 25% water.

 

Dr Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, author of ‘Your Body’s many cries for water” says that painful joints can be viewed, in part, as an indicator of water deficiency in the affected joint cartilage surfaces.

 

Arthritis pain is a local thirst signal of the body. Unlike bone cells, which are immersed in calcium deposits, the cartilage cells are water-dense. Inside the joint structure the actively growing blood cells in the bone marrow take priority over the cartilage for the available water. So to adequately hydrate the cartilage, an abundance of water should be available.

 

The best water to drink is water that is naturally alkaline, since it helps gently shift the body back towards health and away from acidity. It also replenishes some minerals to the body.

 

Avoiding tap water is also important since most city water supplies have added flourine and chlorine which kill your ‘good’ intestinal bacteria.

 

  1. Eat Salad like you’re a crazy person

 

Salad will set you free. Leafy green veggies are going to save your life and reduce your pain. Green leafy veggies like bok choy, kale, spinach, cos lettuce and so on are the world’s most nutrient-dense foods. They are high in Potassium, which is essential for RA sufferers.

 

These plant-based foods also contain chlorophyll, which is almost identical in molecular structure to haemoglobin in human blood. The only difference is the central atom (in chlorophyll the central atom is magnesium and in haemoglobin it is iron).

 

This means that the body finds it easy to create new red blood cells from eating foods rich in chlorophyll, which is essential if you are anemic. These leafy greens are also full of enzymes, allowing for easy digestion of the food which they accompany as well as replentishing you ‘enzyme bank’ a little bit meal by meal.

 

Further, greens are the favourite food for your healthy bacteria, so you can feed your little guys naturally and cheaply and avoid expensive and less-effective probiotic supplements.

 

  1. Sprout it up hard

 

Sprouts (such as alfalfa sprouts and mung bean sprouts) are the richest known sources of enzymes. These will be a wonderfully cheap alternative to taking enzyme supplements. They should be included in any long-term plan to recover from RA.

 

Alternate your sprouts each day since sprouts contain alkaloids, which, if eaten in very large quantities can cause some unwanted symptoms such as headache etc (but nothing as bad as RA itself!) So just mix up your sprouts. Clover sprouts and onion sprouts are both good too.

 

  1. Avoid Fatty foods

 

Studies have shown a link between high fat foods and the immune process. “A fat-free diet produced complete remission in 6 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Pain and swelling returned to the patients within 24 to 72 hours after they consumed a high-fat meal such as chicken, cheese, safflower oil, beef, or coconut oil.

 

Research studies have discovered that the amount of dietary fats normally eaten in the American diet causes the inflammatory joint changes seen in rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Do eliminate high-fat foods from your diet if you want RA to go away forever. I’m talking about not just obvious bad fats like animal fats, but also plant based fats such as those found in avocados and olives. All fats, including oils (which are 100% fat) such as olive oil, flaxseed oil, fish oil and so on needed to be cut down.

 

  1. Avoid Coffee

 

Coffee will keep you sick. It’s terribly acidifying for the body. It has no nutrients whatsoever. It also dehydrates you. It’s a no-brainer. Your body needs water, not some acidifying addictive drug in a mug. A good alternative if you must have a hot drink is home-made ginger tea or caffeine-free Rooibos Tea that has some minor health benefits. Obviously I don’t need to tell you to avoid alcohol or cigarettes, right?!

 

  1. Measure each joint regularly

 

What you keep track of improves. It’s one of those interesting phenomenon in life that where your attention flows, energy goes. According to Clint’s personal experience, he found that by measuring his range of motion and pain levels in his joints each day that he was able to make improvements to them.

 

By monitoring each joint Clint was able to quickly intervene when they were worsening and feel great about myself when I was seeing them improve. Quantifiable, measurable results for each joint are a huge motivator to tell you when you’re getting well by implementing changes 1-7.

 

  1. Go easy on the NSAIDs

 

NSAIDs are Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory drugs. Check the packet of any pills you are taking and see if your brand falls under this category. Most of them contribute to leaky-gut, thus worsening your condition

 

  1. Drink this Celery and Cucumber Juice

  1. Other ways to reduce joint pain

 

Using garlic is an excellent remedy for arthritis pain and condition; it has rich anti-oxidant properties which are extremely good to promote blood flow all over the body. Sufficient blood flow in the joints increases strength and flexibility of tissues to promote smooth and pain less movement. Paste of garlic can be applied on the affected joint or 3-4 cloves of garlic can be consumed for relieving pain.

 

Massaging the affected joint with hot vinegar or sandalwood oil also helps in relieving pain.

 

Consumption of 1 teaspoon of honey with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice mixed in warm water or with 2 teaspoons of honey with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar with a glass of warm water also helps in relieving arthritic pain.

 

One clove everyday fried in a teaspoon of clarified butter is another effective natural remedy for relieving arthritis pain.

 

Hot water tub baths with two cups of Epsom salt mixed in it relieves the pain; drinking tea of alfalfa leaves in place of regular tea also helps in improving the condition.

 

  1. Get a Coach

 

The quickest way to success with anything is to find out what someone else has done and ‘model’ yourself on them. Success leaves clues. If you pay enough attention to the successful work of others than soon enough you will replicate their results.
