Red, burning, swollen and so stiff you don’t want to move… that’s what those who suffer from arthritis experience on a daily basis. If you know this all too well, you are probably one of those (that’s 1 out of every 5 people) that are living with arthritis every day.

 

To better understand how to treat arthritis naturally and reduce your inflammation we need to dive deeper into its root cause.

Some of the types of arthritis which are associated with inflammation include:

* rheumatoid arthritis
* gout
* tendinitis
* bursitis
* polymyalgia rheumatica

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis actually means joint (arthr) inflammation (itis). Arthritis can be used to define a group of more than 100 rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints or any part of your body.
Additionally, it can damage the joint cartilage which can lead to joint weakness, instability and visible deformities that can interfere and, in severe cases, limit a person’s ability to perform most basic daily tasks such as walking, climbing stairs, using a computer keyboard, washing dishes or brushing your teeth.

 

Arthritis can affect anyone regardless of age and most commonly affects joints in the knees, hips, hands and spine. If left undiagnosed and not treated properly, arthritis can cause irreversible damage to the joints, bones, organs, and skin. Not to mention dramatically impair your quality of life.

Arthritis-related conditions primarily affect the muscles and the bones but it is also considered to be systemic, affecting the whole body. Arthritis can cause damage to any bodily organ or system, including the lungs, kidneys, blood vessels, skin and even the heart.

 

The Arthritis Foundation sites two independent studies (Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota) both of which prove that the widespread inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis is linked to heart disease and an increased risk of early death.

No one really knows the exact cause of arthritis but there are certain risk factors to keep in mind:

* Genetics – likely to contribute to risk but no one knows
how much.
* Age – the older you are the more at risk you become.
* Weight – maintaining a healthy weight will ease the load on
the joints.
* Previous Injury – major injuries are likely to contribute to
risk.
* Occupational Hazards – repetitive, high demand jobs increase
risk.
* Certain Sports – high level, high demand sports can
contribute to arthritis (however, general exercise is always
a plus)
* Illness or infection – an infection in the joint or gout can
lead to arthritis.

What we do know is that when you have arthritis your immune system
goes into over-drive and causes the joints to swell and become inflamed. Therefore, treating the inflammation becomes the key in managing the pain and discomfort associated with this condition.

Sadly enough, the Arthritis Foundation reports that half of those that are afflicted with arthritis don’t believe anything can be done to help ease their pain. You may be in that situation yourself, having thrown your hands up in frustration and simply decided to live with your pain. The good news is that by reducing the inflammation you can significantly ease the painful symptoms associated with arthritis.

How to treat arthritis naturally and reduce your inflammation? Do the following:

* Exercise – less weight equals less stress on joints
* Diet – Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole-grain
products; limit sugar, salt and fat (especially saturated fat
found in animal products)
* Rest – a good balance between rest and activity is the key to
joint health
* Over-the-counter and prescription medications – while these may
provide temporary relief by masking the pain they are not always
get to the root of the problem – inflammation. They can also
have serious side effects, especially with long-term use.
* Natural anti-inflammatory supplements – probably the most
promising natural approach to reducing inflammation in a long
while. We recommend looking for supplements containing systemic
enzymes and all-natural herbal ingredients.

By taking these simple steps to reducing inflammation you will be well
on your way to managing your arthritis pain and it devastating effects
on your mind and body. Everyone should strive to achieve a healthy and
active lifestyle for optimal health and wellbeing.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment – Side Effects of NSAIDs

 

Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment – Side Effects of NSAIDs. Are you experiencing pain in your joints? Are you looking for natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment? Read on to find out more.

As part of the rheumatoid arthritis treatment, your doctor will probably prescribe some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for relieving joint pain.

 

They are usually prescribed in early consultations with a Rheumatologist and are also encouraged by the staff at every pharmaceutical store.  They are widely available and widely used and used often.

 

Commonly-heard NSAID brands for rheumatoid arthritis treatment are Advil or Motrin (Ibuprofen), Aleve or Naprosyn (naproxen sodium), Celbrex (Celecoxib) and Voltaran (Diclofenac).

 

These drugs reduce pain and inflammation but do not slow progression of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Therefore, people with moderate to severe RA often require additional drugs to prevent further joint damage.

 

I completely understand the need for pain reduction and I fully support all attempts to keep inflammation down to reduce long-term damage and for day-to-day pain. However, it is no secret that these types of drugs carry a warning regarding the increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

 

NSAIDs can also raise blood pressure. If you have hypertension, be sure to keep a close eye on your blood pressure. Let your doctor know if your blood pressure goes up.

 

In addition, NSAIDs can cause stomach irritation, ulcers, and bleeding. What they don’t go on to say is that they can completely ruin your intestinal environment. For RA sufferers, this is a VERY big deal.

 

If we are trying to eliminate the underlying RA causes (bad bacteria, leaky gut, acidosis, mucosal lining and enzyme deficiency) then we need to be very careful about everything we put in our body.

 

Unfortunately these drugs create turmoil on the healthy bacteria in your intestines (which are also called ‘probiotics’) and damage your intestinal wall leading to poor absorption of nutrients and a concept known as ‘leaky gut’ by Naturopaths.

 

‘Leaky Gut’ is actually a descriptive term for having holes in your intestinal wall, through which large foreign molecules may pass and enter your blood.

 

When these foreign proteins enter your bloodstream through the intestinal wall, they can trigger a state of ‘molecular mimicry’ and result in your body attacking its own joints in a state of innocent confusion.

 

According to Clint Paddison, an ex-RA sufferer, his personal experience with these types of drugs was a roller coaster. It was the first medication he took for my RA and it was incredible at relieving my pain and inflammation for about 2 weeks.

 

However, as time wore on, the effects of the drug diminished greatly. Therefore after about 3 weeks he decided to see how he felt after he stopped taking the drug.

 

After stopping this medication he felt about twice as bad as what he was before he started taking it. He was in total shock and completely frustrated with his body.

 

How could something that helped my pain levels at the same time leave me feeling worse for wear after a short amount of time? Looking back Clint believes that his intestinal wall took a battering during the time he was taking the NSAIDs, which in turn led to increased swelling and pain.

 

Are there any NSAIDs that don’t cause Leaky Gut?

 

Most NSAID’s contribute to leaky gut and it has been shown that these drugs can increase intestinal permeability (leakage of the intestinal wall) in less than 24 hours.

 

This serves to perpetuating the Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms through the process described above. The offenders include all the common brands; however there are two exceptions, namely aspirin and nabumetone (Relafen).

 

How to heal your leaky gut naturally and re-establish your mucosal lining for rheumatoid arthritis treatment?

 

Think of your intestinal wall like an internal skin that protects the rest of your body from all of that stuff that you have put into your mouth. When you stop irritating your intestinal wall with offensive foods then it has a chance to heal, just like your outer skin does after it has been cut.

 

Clint recommends that RA sufferers should work on replenishing the gut flora (beneficial bacteria), healing the mucosal lining and repairing the leaky gut.

 

This is achieved by minimizing the intake of meat and dairy products and increasing the intake of fiber-rich foods. Other things that are particular benefit for rheumatoid arthritis treatment are eating green leaves, raw garlic, raw onion and artichoke which help to replenish the beneficial bacteria even faster. Eat brown rice to help heal the mucosal wall too.

 

There is so much more you can do – if you’re looking for a complete overhaul of your health then The Paddison Program for Rheumatoid Arthritis is the best way forward for you.

 

This program will help to combat the negative internal effects of NSAIDS. With time, you will be able to reduce, and even stop, some NSAIDs altogether after shifting their diet to one that heals and restores intestinal health, thereby reducing external symptoms. Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medication.

Avoid Milk and Dairy Foods for Eliminating Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms

 

Avoid Milk and Dairy Foods for Eliminating Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms  -   Are you experiencing pain in your joints? Are you looking for ways for eliminating rheumatoid arthritis symptoms? Read on to learn about the foods to avoid for stopping joint pain.

The very first step to start eliminating Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms is to avoid milk. This may seem like an unlikely first-step, but without eliminating milk then everything else that I teach will fall to the wayside.

 

Milk is one of the most allergy-forming, intestine-ruining, acid forming things you could put into your precious body.

 

Most Westerners like to drink milk because we have strong positive associations with it. We think it is healthy for us. We also think that it is perfectly natural to drink and that it will strengthen our bones. Most would argue that it tastes good.

 

Very few people are out there criticizing dairy and telling you that it is one of the worst ‘foods’ that you could eat. The reason that you’re not hearing this message is that nobody makes money out of it telling you this message.

 

Who do you know would make money out of telling you to stop consuming dairy products? Absolutely no one! Besides, who wants the argument every day with all of the dairy lovers? I certainly couldn’t be bothered hearing another parent insist that they can’t possibly remove dairy products because “if we removed milk and ice cream what on earth would we give the kids?”

 

On the contrary, who makes money out of telling you that dairy is good for you? The Trillion-dollar industry worldwide who is hell-bent on having you and your kids jam as much dairy into you as your body can possibly handle! If you do, say goodbye to your health.

 

What Do The Experts Say?

 

Doctor Neal Barnard writes “Casein is a common trigger for rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain. People often find that their pain disappears when they refrain from eating dairy products.

 

In the book ‘Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition’, author G. Eisman, states “Rheumatoid arthritis is more severe than osteoarthritis…Since this type of joint pain can be a symptom of a food allergy, dietary change sometimes has a profound effect. Dairy products, the most common food allergen, are one likely candidate as a contributing causative factor.”

 

In his book ‘No Milk’, by Daniel Twogood, D.C., writes “In systemic arthritis, like Rheumatoid, the cause is coursing through the blood, and it got there through the diet. When all of the joints are involved, the cause is not physical, but chemical. It’s usually casein. (Eighty percent of milk protein is casein).

 

I once saw a 65 year old man, Bob, who complained of neck stiffness and headaches. His hands were so stiff and sore. Bob lived to play golf. I instructed him to give up all milk and dairy products. Since giving up dairy products, he no longer experienced pain and headaches, and his hands were also pain-free.

 

Joy, a 42 year old woman noticed that her knees were pain-free after eliminating dairy products. Once, after drinking a glass of milk, her knees swelled within 20 minutes.”

 

So when it comes to eliminating rheumatoid arthritis symptoms, what does the actual scientific studies show between the link of Rheumatoid Arthritis and dairy products?

 

What the Scientific Studies Show

 

A 38-year-old mother with 11-years of rheumatoid arthritis recovered from her disease and attained full mobility by stopping all dairy products. Since her early 20s the patient had had a passion for cheese, consuming up to 1 lb (0 4 kg) a day.

 

Although there was no clear history of allergy or diarrhoea after eating cheese she agreed to try to restrict consumption of dairy produce, with the elimination of milk, cheese, and butter from her diet. The authors reported “Three weeks after starting the diet she began to feel better – both the synovitis and the morning stiffness diminished.

 

She was re-examined frequently over many months, and eventually morning stiffness completely disappeared and the synovitis almost completely resolved. The improvement was maintained, apart from when she inadvertently ate dairy produce again-after which the symptoms returned within 12 hours”

 

An experiment was conducted where all dairy products were removed from the diet of patients with seronegative rheumatoid arthritis. Out of 15 patients, 7 went into remission.

 

A comparison was made of the arthritis-inducing properties of cow’s milk, egg protein and soy milk in experimental animals. The 12-week cow’s milk feeding regimen produced the highest incidence of significant joint lesions. Egg protein was less arthritis-inducing than cow’s milk, and soy milk caused no reaction.

 

Why Milk Is of No Help for Eliminating Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms?

 

Milk damages the intestinal environment by increasing the amount of bad bacteria and destroys the balance of the intestinal flora.

Contrary to popular belief, eating dairy products has never been shown to reduce fracture risk.

 

Countries with lowest rates of dairy and calcium consumption (like those in Africa and Asia) have the lowest rates of osteoporosis. Following on from this, there is a consistent trend between countries that have the highest consumption of dairy products with the highest rates of osteoarthritis.

 

A book called ‘The China Study’ by Colin Campbell gives amazing insights into these findings. In ‘The Enzyme Factor’ Dr Hiromi Shinya explains the effect of drinking milk on the body’s calcium levels. When you drink milk, your calcium levels in your blood suddenly rise above the usual 9-10mg.

 

Although at first it looks like you’ve raised your calcium levels, the body responds by dumping calcium out through the urine from the kidneys to return the blood calcium levels to normal, producing the ironic result of depleting your overall levels of calcium in your body.

 

Dairy products have been linked to heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. They are completely devoid of fiber and complex carbohydrates but loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol.

 

About 50 percent of the world’s population is lactose intolerant. They are genetically unable to properly digest milk and other dairy products. Shouldn’t this alone give us a big sign that this isn’t a food for humans?

 

Humans are the only animals that drink milk after weaning from their mothers. But even stranger is that unlike any other species in the world, humans are consuming the lactation juice of another animal! Dairy products are commonly contaminated with blood, pus, pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics.

 

Ice cream is the worst of all. Some ice creams will use the fat from scraps from slaughter houses. Cooked tallow, suet, and lard are in commercial ice cream.

 

According to Nature’s Path magazine, ‘retail store ice cream manufacturers in the US are not required by law to list the additives used in the manufacture of their product’. Consequently, today most ice creams are synthetic from start to finish.

 

Even if you found a ‘real’ ice cream that does not use any chemical additives, you are still ingesting the fat from animal’s milk which will wreak havoc on your digestive system, as we have just learned.

The Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis

 

The Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis -  Are you experiencing stiffness and pain in your joints? This can be due to rheumatoid arthritis. Read on to find out how to identify the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and the treatments.

There are 8 common symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). This post will discuss these common symptoms and what to do about them – including the removal of common Rheumatoid Arthritis nodules.

 

The 8 Most Common Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis

 

  1. Heat

 

Joints with RA tend to feel noticeably warmer then the unaffected joints. Place a cool hand over the joint in question and observe the presence of heat

 

  1. Swelling

 

A symptom that is most associated with RA joints is swelling. The swelling occurs due to an excess of synovial fluid in addition to a swollen synovial lining.

 

  1. Pain

The pain in an arthritic joint can be tremendous, especially after a period of inactivity

 

  1. Reduced Range of Motion

 

As the joint heats and swells, the space that is normally available for the bone structures to move gets occupied by soft tissue and fluid. In addition, the presence of inflammation in the area causes the connective muscles, tissues and ligaments to lock up in an attempt to protect the joint. This combination causes the joints to lose their range of motion.

 

  1. Redness

 

With the onset of swelling and stiffness there is commonly a reddish appearance to an affected RA joint, especially in the fingers.

 

  1. Opposite Joints Effected

 

It is common for Rheumatoid Arthritis to occupy equivalent joints on both sides of the body. For instance, RA in the fingers or feet on one side of the body is commonly seen in the exact same joints on the other side of the body.

 

  1. Nodules

 

Nodules are hardened and bulging areas around the joint that occur after an extended disease presence. Some Rheumatologists recommend that these can be ‘rubbed’ out through gentle massage but my personal experience with RA nodules is to address them the same way as addressing other aspects of the disease and that is heal the underlying cause. My joint nodules disappeared, along with many other RA symptoms, by healing my intestinal environment first

 

  1. Fatigue

 

In addition to the external symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis there is also the additional challenge of fatigue. The body becomes tired for several reasons.

 

Firstly, the immune system is in an overactive state as it relentlessly attacks the own body’s tissues in a state of innocent confusion.

 

Secondly, the body is dealing with the elimination of particles that are getting into the blood stream, signalling the need to create many antibodies to invading antigens and eliminate the resulting circulating immune complexes from the body.

 

In addition, a body that has resulted in RA typically is low on enzymatic activity, which is the catalyst to all cellular operation in the body. The cumulative effect of these activities results in a feeling of sluggishness and heaviness that makes even simple tasks seem challenging.
Thanks for visiting this post.

 

You can improve your RA symptoms dramatically through a change of diet and some unique and specific healing foods for RA. There are also some exercises for Rheumatoid Arthritis that can reduce morning stiffness rapidly and relax the muscle stiffness around damaged joints.
