We take the freedom of movement for granted, until it becomes limited. The cause of this for many people comes in the form of arthritis, or the inflammation of one or more of your joints.

 

There are two main kinds, osteo and rheumatoid, both of which affect the joint in different ways.

 

Osteo arthritis is when the cartilage between bones wears down, until bone grates on bone.

 

Rheumatoid is little less straightforward, being caused by an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation of the synovial membrane (a soft tissue that protects joints in the body) and that can lead to bone loss.

 

Whichever you experience, there are home remedies for arthritis to manage the pain and ease the symptoms naturally.

 

Try These 14 Home Remedies for Arthritis

 

  1. Turmeric & Ginger Tea

 

Turmeric and ginger are both anti-inflammatories, and will help with oseto and rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Turmeric in particular has gotten a lot of attention lately. Its active ingredient is something called curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant. In addition, it lowers the levels of 2 enzymes responsible for causing inflammation (which is what we’re often fighting with arthritis.)

 

You can take these in a capsule form or make a nice spicy tea to enjoy daily.

 

You will need…

 

-2 cups of water
-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
-1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
-Honey to taste

 

Directions

 

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, and had ½ teaspoon each ground ginger and ground turmeric. Reduce to a simmer and let it be for 10-15 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste, and enjoy twice daily. This yields 2 servings.

 

 

 

  1. Epsom salt soak

 

Epsom salt contains magnesium sulfate which sounds kind of scary, but it’s really quite a wonderful substance.

 

A naturally occurring mineral, magnesium sulfate has been used to get relief from pain for years, namely because of its high levels of magnesium (more on magnesium below.)

 

You will need…

 

-1/2 cup of Epsom salt
-A large bowl
-Warm water

 

Directions

 

Fill a large bowl with warm water and add ½ cup of Epsom salt. Stir it around, and then submerge your sore joints in the liquid.

 

If you are experiencing pain in a less convenient place to soak, such as your knees, try taking a bath with Epsom salts. Run a tub full of warm water and add 2 cups of Epsom salt. Soak for 15 minutes (at least.)

 

  1. Get more magnesium (seriously.)

 

Magnesium is something our bodies need, but we can’t make it ourselves. It is used in over 300 different biomechanical responses in our body. It relaxes all our muscles and nerve endings, relieving stiffness and pain.

 

It is even part of what makes our heart beat. Not only does it relax muscles and ease pain (this goes for arthritis pain too, of course) it helps bones to mineralize.

 

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition conducted one of many studies on magnesium that showed people who had a diet high in magnesium/took supplements had higher bone density, and overall stronger bones.

 

There are several ways to get more magnesium and utilize it for arthritis in particular.

 

Supplements: Magnesium capsules are a good thing to add to your day-to-day life, but they work best when used in conjunction with an improved diet.

 

Diet: Really this is the clincher-as great as supplements are, they can’t do everything. Eat foods that are high in magnesium, which include dark leafy greens (like spinach), nuts, and legumes (beans.)

 

Oil: There is magnesium oil that can be applied topically and absorbed through the skin. Try rubbing it on sore joints to relieve pain.

 

  1. Lubricate With Extra Virgin Olive Oil

 

The very consistency of olive oil makes it seem like something that would lubricate your joints and ease arthritis pain, and it turns out, it actually does.

 

A main compound in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) called oleocanthal inhibits inflammatory enzymes COX-1 and COX-2, just like Advil or aspirin does. A study showed that 1 ½ tablespoons is equal to 200-mg of ibuprofen.

 

However, not every oil is created equal. Heat destroys oleocanthal, so it is necessary to use extra virgin olive oil or “cold-pressed.” The ripeness of the olives at the time they were pressed also determines the level of oleocanthal-generally the stronger tasting the oil, the higher the level there is present.

 

It can be taken internally to reap the benefits, but being high in calories consider replacing any fats, such as butter, with it in cooking instead.

 

You will need…

 

-2-3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

 

Directions

 

Rub a bit of olive oil onto your sore joints twice a day, massaging in to each one gently. You can also take 2-3 tablespoons daily, but be sure to give up some other form of fat due to the high calorie count in the oil (rest easy, these are good calories.)

 

  1. Dandelion Leaves

 

Incredibly high in vitamins A and C, dandelion leaves can help repair damaged tissue and help the liver clear toxins out of the blood. Studies, although limited, have also shown anti-inflammatory properties due to the linoleic and linoleic acid in them.

 

Linoleic is an essential fatty acid required by the body to produce prostaglandin-which basically regulates immune responses and suppresses inflammation.

 

Because of its involvement with immune responses, dandelion shows great potential when it comes to treating rheumatoid arthritis in particular. You can enjoy dandelion leaves in nice salad, or brew tea with them.

 

You will need…

 

-3 teaspoons of fresh dandelion leaves, or 1 teaspoon of dried
-1 cup of boiling water
-A handful of fresh leaves (if making a salad)
-A dash of extra virgin olive oil (if making a salad)

 

Directions

 

For fresh dandelion tea, steep 3 teaspoons of fresh leaves or 1 teaspoon dried in 1 cup of boiling water. Strain and drink twice daily.

 

Dandelion tea is very bitter…you have been warned! You can add honey to sweeten it up if you’d like.

 

To make a salad, simply toss the greens in with another recipe, or eat them plain with a bit of extra virgin olive oil. Older leaves can be gently sautéed to soften them up a bit.

 

  1. Blackstrap Molasses Drink

 

High in valuable minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium, blackstrap molasses has been one of the most cherished home remedies for arthritis for a number of years.

 

Blackstrap molasses is what remains after the 3rd boiling of sugar syrup, and is nothing like the nutrient lacking refined sugars used today.

 

As a dietary supplement (easily consumed as a drink) blackstrap can help relieve symptoms of arthritis and joint pain, thanks to its vital constituents that regulate nerve and muscle function, and strengthen bones.

 

You will need…

 

-1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses
-1 cup of warm water

 

Directions

 

Heat 1 cup of fresh water until warm, but not hot. Stir in a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses and drink once daily. Do note that it can sometimes have a laxative effect.

 

  1. White Willow Tea (the original aspirin)

 

Before there was aspirin, and I mean way before aspirin, there was white willow bark. The Greek physician Hippocrates wrote about it all the way back in 5th century BC.

 

It wasn’t until 18-something or other (1829, I believe) that it was found that white willow was so effective because it contained an active ingredient called salicin.

 

Salicin is converted in the body into salicylic acid-similar to acetyl salicylic acid, the active ingredient in aspirin. But because the naturally occurring salicin is converted after it passed through the stomach, it resulted in less irritation/side effects.

 

While it can be taken in a capsule form, I usually opt for the tea version of just about everything.

 

You will need…

 

-2 teaspoons of powdered or chipped white willow bark
-1 cup of water
-Honey or lemon to taste

 

Directions

 

Bring 1 cup (8 oz.) of water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add 2 teaspoons of powdered or chipped white willow bark and let it infuse for 10-15 minutes.

 

Remove from heat and let it steep for 30 more minutes. Drink twice daily-it’s bitter, so honey and lemon are usually welcome here.

 

  1. Exercise

 

When it’s painful and difficult just to move, the last thing you feel like doing is getting up and exercising. As unpleasant as it may sound though, exercise is vital for those who suffer from any form of stiffness, joint pain, or arthritis.

 

Exercise will help control weight (an excess of which puts more strain on your joints) strengthens the muscles that support the joint, even when the cartilage is thinning, and lubricates the joints, allowing them to move more freely.

 

When we are inactive the synovial fluid in the joints is the consistency of a thick gel, but once we get moving and warming up, the liquid becomes more viscous and can do a better job of lubricating our joints and keeping them going smoothly.

 

Just imagine if you were to be sedentary every day, pretty soon you’d be so stiff it’d be just about impossible to move. But if you get up and move around every day, you’ll get stronger and will loosen up as well.

 

Try…
-Going for a brisk walk-start with 15 minutes and work your way up into a solid daily routine.
-Doing joint-targeted exercises-certain stretches and exercises specifically target joints to help rid them of stiffness and pain.
-Getting a dog-doing so backs up the first point, because you’ll have no choice but to walk!

 

  1. Peppermint Eucalyptus Oil Blend

 

Peppermint and eucalyptus don’t change the course of the arthritis itself, but they do have analgesic, or pain-relieving, properties. The cooling sensation that they produce can temporarily override your discomfort, and create a soothing sensation that can ease the pain of arthritis.

 

You will need…

 

-5-10 drops of Peppermint oil
-5-10 drops of Eucalyptus oil
-1-2 tablespoons of carrier oil (olive, almond, grape seed, etc.)
-A small dark glass bottle

 

Directions

 

Blend 5-10 drops of eucalyptus and peppermint oil together, and then mix into 1-2 tablespoons of carrier oil.

 

Carrier oil is needed to dilute the essential oil so that it does not irritate the skin, and can be olive oil, grapeseed oil, or something of the like (not oil.)

 

Store the oil blend in dark glass bottle away from direct sunlight, and rub into your joints when they ache.

 

  1. Juniper Berry Tea

 

A 2009 research trial published in the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology” found that juniper berries do indeed help with arthritis pain thanks to a component called terpinen-4-ol.

 

Terpene suppresses a type of white blood cells called monocytes which, as a part of our immune system, respond to signals of inflammation.

 

In rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system attacks normal joint tissue for no reason, leading to inflammation, pain, and loss of function.

 

If taken daily, juniper may be able to reduce the uncomfortable inflammation thanks to its terpene content. Only prickly juniper and common juniper varieties were effective.

 

Note: Do NOT drink juniper berry tea while pregnant.

 

You will need…

 

-1 tablespoon of dried juniper berries
-1 cup of fresh water
-Honey (optional)

 

Directions

 

Bring 1 cup of fresh water to a boil, and place 1 tablespoon of dried juniper berries in a mug. Pour the boiling water over the berries and let them steep for 20 minutes before straining. Drink 1 cup twice daily, and add honey to taste if you like.

 

  1. Golden Raisins & Gin

 

First off I am not recommending that you go and drink gin, but I thought this was one of the most interesting old home remedies for arthritis.

 

Gins flavor is derived from juniper berries (see #10 for a more in depth explanation of juniper berries) which contain anti-inflammatory properties.

 

Golden raisins (only golden can be used in this recipe) require sulfides in their processing to give them their characteristic color.

 

Sulfides are found in both glucosamine and chondroitin, which many people have found to be helpful home remedies for arthritis.

 

This remedy stretches back at least 20 years, and some people swear by it, while others have had limited success.

 

You will need…

 

-Around 1/2 cup of gin
-1 cup of golden raisins
-a shallow dish

 

Directions

 

The amounts will vary depending on how big of a batch you are making, but basically you just need raisins and enough gin to just cover them, and the above amounts are just to give a general guideline.

 

I am one of those people who, even if it is a loosely interpreted recipe, like to have some numbers to start with. Anyways, place 1 cup of golden raisins in a shallow dish, and pour in enough gin to just barely cover them.

 

Cover with a towel and store them away in a dark place until the gin has evaporated (around 2 weeks.) Eat 9 of the raisins daily, keeping in mind the results may take several weeks to show.

 

  1. Bosweilla supplements

 

Also known as Frankincense, Bosweilla is a flowering plant native to Africa and Asia. The gum resin or extract of the plant works as an anti-inflammatory and pain-killer.

 

It works against inflammation by ‘disabling’ white blood cells that would cause swelling, and also helps shrink tissue that has already become inflamed and painful.

 

I am afraid I don’t have a tea recipe for this one, as it is generally taken in a tablet supplement form, much like a vitamin. It is sold at many health stores and online, and is fairly reasonably priced compared to what some other supplements cost.

 

  1. Pectin & Grape Juice

 

Pectin is a water soluble carbohydrate substance found in the cell walls of plants, where it helps keep cell walls together, and gives fruit firmness as it ripens.

 

It is extracted from fruit to use as a setting in jams and jellies, and has become popular as a home remedy for arthritis when combined with grape juice.

 

It has been tentatively hypothesized that it helps return the synovial tissue to a more elastic and lubricated state, which results in pain-free movement.

 

Despite the fact that more studies are needed on pectin and connective tissue many people have found, for whatever reason, great relief from their arthritis with it.

 

The grape juice is the liquid of choice due to the fact that it can help with inflammation.

 

You will need…

 

-1 tablespoon of liquid pectin
-8 oz. of grape juice

 

Directions

 

Mix 1 tablespoon of liquid pectin with 8 oz. of grape juice and drink 1-2 times daily. It will take a week or two for the effects to show.

 

  1. Cayenne ‘Capsaicin’ Ointment

 

A common OTC pain reliever for joint pain contains capsaicin, a component in hot peppers that inhibits something called Substance P.

 

Substance P is involved in transmitting pain signals to our brain, and when the capsaicin interferes with it, it minimizes the alert to the discomfort, and therefore the discomfort itself.

 

It has been one of the more effective topical treatments for arthritis, and you can make your own at home with humble cayenne.

 

Keep in mind, however, that it is only a temporary fix and should be used sparingly if possible.

 

To prepare Original Capsaicin Cream Recipe for treating arthritis

 

You will need…

 

-3 tablespoons of cayenne powder
-1 cup of grapeseed oil (or any other oil like almond, olive, jojoba)
-1/2 cup of grated beeswax
-A double boiler
-A glass jar with a tightly fitting lid

 

Directions

 

Mix together 3 tablespoons of cayenne powder with 1 cup of your oil of choice and heat in a double boiler for 5-10 minutes over medium heat. Stir in a 1/2 cup of grated beeswax and continue to stir until it has melted completely and everything is blended together.

 

Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and then whisk together. Chill for another 10-15 and then whip again before putting it in a glass jar with a tightly fitting lid and storing in the refrigerator. It will keep for 1 ½ weeks-apply daily as needed for pain.

 

Our body is an incredible structure that takes a great amount of strain and stress every single day-it’s really no wonder our joints, the things that allows us movement, begin to feel the burden.

In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, the complexity of the body provides a mystery that we may or may not ever solve. Whichever form of arthritis or joint pain you happen to suffer from, a deeper understanding of what is causing it can help you determine the best way to treat it.

 

Nature also does a surprisingly good job at healing-we wouldn’t have made it very far otherwise-and you may find great success in naturally treating your condition and regaining the freedom of movement.

Revealing Here the 6 Best Exercises for Painful Wrist

 

Revealing Here the 6 Best Exercises for Painful Wrist - Here are 6 simple exercises for painful wrist which can be very effective to help you strengthen your wrists and break free from the ongoing cycle of repetitive motion and pain.
#1 Recommended Natural Pain Cream – Rub on Relief for Fast Wrist Pain Relief

 

It’s easy to take your wrists for granted, that is, until you have wrist pain. Then the dull throbbing ache or sharp, stabbing pain that occurs every time you try to brush your teeth, chop carrots for dinner, type on your computer or do countless other routine activities in a day makes your wrists impossible to ignore.

 

An injury, such as a sprain or fracture, can obviously cause wrist pain, but far more often the cause is far more insidious, and occurs due to repetitive stress (from typing, playing a sport, driving long distances, texting, or virtually any activity that causes your wrist to move in a repetitive motion can be to blame).

 

On a foundational level, wrist pain, like virtually all forms of pain, often has an underlying inflammatory cause. Even short-term overuse can set off an inflammatory cascade in your immune system, intended to “heal” the overworked area. If that inflammation persists on a low level, it can then contribute to the very pain it was originally intended to heal.

 

If your repetitive movements continue, perhaps because you simply love playing tennis too much, or must type often for your job, the inflammatory cascade can easily spiral out of control, along with its associated pain.

 

If this sounds familiar to you, you’ve got to try out Heal-n-Soothe, which contains 12 natural anti-inflammatories, including, proteolytic enzymes, to give your body a powerful and proven one-two punch against inflammation and pain.

 

Top Exercises for Painful Wrist

 

Fortunately, some simple exercises for painful wrist can also be very effective to help you strengthen your wrists and break free from the ongoing cycle of repetitive motion and pain.

 

  1. Wrist Stretches:With your forearm supported on a table and your wrist hanging over the edge, bend your wrist upward and downward slowly for a thorough stretch (repeat 10 times). Next, move your wrist from side to side slowly until you feel a stretch (repeat 10 times).

 

  1. Prayer Stretch:With your palms together (hands in a prayer formation) and elbows out, slowly lower your wrists until a gentle stretch is felt (hold for 10 seconds). Return to starting position and repeat 10 times.

 

  1. Opposite Hand Wrist Stretch: With your arms extended straight in front of you, use your opposite hand to press the back of your hand downward, so your fingers point toward the floor (hold for 15-30 seconds). Then pull your fingers up and backward (so your fingers point toward the ceiling, holding for 15-30 seconds). Repeat for a total of three sets.

 

  1. Tennis Ball Exercise:Make a fist around a tennis ball. Squeeze it as hard as you can (without being in pain) for about 5 seconds. Repeat up to 10 times.

 

  1. Flexion and Extension Exercises:Hold a light dumbbell in your hand with your arm extended out straight in front of you (your fingers, curled around the dumbbell, should be facing the ceiling).

 

Slowly bend your risk upward, holding for 10 seconds, then bend it downward toward the floor, holding for another 10 seconds. Repeat this four times.

 

This exercise can also be done using a resistance band, with one end placed under your foot for traction and the other end around your palm.

 

  1. Rubber Band Forearm Exercise:Hold your hand out flat, then place a rubber band firmly around your five fingers. Open your fingers slowly, allowing the resistance of the rubber band to work the muscles and tendons in your forearm (which often contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome). Hold your fingers open for 15 seconds, then repeat up to 12 times.

Enjoy this special condensed report from Dr. Mark Wiley, excerpted from the new book Arthritis Reversed: 30 Days to Lasting Relief From Joint Pain and Arthritis

 

For any wellness action plan to work there must be a clear understanding of the various aspects involved. The puzzle pieces must be identified before steps can be taken to piece them together. This all begins with clearing up the arthritis myths and setting forth the facts of the situation with regards to treating arthritis.

 

I wish to present you with some of the most common myths surrounding arthritis (watch this Video HERE). Please take the time to read and consider each myth. For those arthritis myths you believe, try instead turning your mind toward understanding and then believing the facts about arthritis.

 

Myth #1: Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Osteoarthritis (OA) are the Same

 

There are over 100 different types of arthritis; the three most common being osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and juvenile arthritis (JA). While RA and JA are diseases, osteoarthritis (OA) is not a disease at all. It is a symptom of joint degeneration.

 

OA is the result of any combination of several external factors, including traumatic physical injury and excessive sports or physical activities over the course of decades. This causes wear-and-tear of the joints, the cartilage separating the joints, and the surrounding tissues.

 

Most people with arthritis have OA and only 1 percent have RA. So, you likely don’t actually have a disease, but have symptoms that are quite management with natural, non-invasive approaches!

 

Myth #2: Arthritis Is a Normal Part of Aging and Only Affects the Elderly

 

Since there are plenty of elderly afflicted with arthritic conditions, it is understandable how this myth has formed and taken hold. However, arthritis is NOT a normal part of the aging process.

 

OA is a result of joint wear and tear based on injury and/or overuse. It can come on at any time–or not at all. By keeping the immune system strong and stable, eating right, exercising right and taking care of bone and joint health, the onset and debilitating effects of arthritis need not be part of your aging process.

 

When you find you have the condition you can stop it and reduce or even reverse its symptoms!

 

Myth #3: If You Don’t Look “Sick,” You Don’t have RA

 

Even when people do not have the visible outward signs of RA, such as red swollen joints and misshapen fingers, they can still suffer symptoms, like joint pain, fatigue and a general sense of feeling unwell. RA is an autoimmune disease and can be active before visible signs of it manifest.

 

The best way to know if you have RA, or are at risk for, RA is to speak to your primary care physician, look into family history and do some blood work.

 

Myth #4: If You Have Arthritis, You Should not Exercise

 

This is a myth most believed by those suffering the symptoms of arthritic pain and inflammation. Decades ago patients were told not to exercise because it would rub the joints and make things worse. This is incorrect.

 

While it is true that depending on your arthritis type and conditions certain exercises should be avoided, this is not a blanket statement about all forms of exercise.

 

The fact is, a certain amount of exercise can greatly help reduce the symptoms of arthritis. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) advocates exercises to help keep your muscles strong and your joints flexible.

Myth #5: Different Climates Have No Effect on Arthritis

 

The National Institutes of Health accurately note there is no scientific evidence to support the notion that cold weather or environments cause arthritis or alter its course, or that warm weather can reverse or cure arthritis. Yet both cold and warm weather can affect arthritis in negative or positive ways.

 

Cold weather constricts muscles, tendons and blood vessels, causing constriction around the joints, leading to pain and limited range of motion. Heat allows muscles to expand and blood to flow, relieving compression around joints and moving fresh blood to the area, which reduces pain and stiffness.

Myth #6: Arthritis Will Lead to Disability, Wheelchair, Nursing Home

 

This one is formed and held in place by our individual belief systems. As a result of our history of poor arthritis diagnosis, treatment and prevention methods, many who contracted arthritis did end up with a walker, in a wheelchair and living in assisted environments. Seeing them today can make one think the same will happen to you. However, what used to be fact is now fiction.

 

With information on diet, supplementation and with aided therapies like chiropractic, acupuncture, quantum touch and others, there are many restorative options available to halt its progression and prevent it. Taking the necessary steps mean this old myth is no longer valid today!

Myth #7: Arthritis Sufferers Have To Live In Pain

 

This is a huge myth that is widely believed because many arthritis sufferers do live in pain, with daily stiffness and inflammation. They are suffering greatly, yet needlessly because they don’t know all the parts of the arthritis puzzle.

 

Engaging in mind/body exercises to reduce stress, eating an anti-inflammatory diet, stretching, exercising, taking proper supplementation, using therapeutic creams and seeing practitioners for complementary wellness visits, you can greatly reduce, if not almost completely remove, the daily throbbing pain of arthritis.

 

Myth #8: Arthritis Can’t Be Reversed

 

It is easy to see why people think this, and thus how the myth started, but it simply is untrue. You see, many of the “common beliefs” about arthritis are derived from a Western medical point of view.

 

This view believes nothing can be done to reverse damage, and so patients need to manage their condition as best they can. However, traditional and holistic medicines have natural methods for increasing bone density, rebuilding bone and regenerating soft tissue.

 

In other words, there is a natural approach to reversing damage done by arthritis based on using supplements, topical creams and energy medicine.

What are the best anti-arthritis beverages to overcome arthritis?

Pain from arthritis is a leading cause of disability worldwide, and if you’re affected you probably know that certain foods can make pain flare-ups worse.

 

Click here to read the anti-inflammatory diet to overcome arthritis

 

Why is this? With osteoarthritis, the most common form, the breakdown of cartilage causes your bones to rub together at your joints, leading to inflammation and pain.

 

With rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease, chronic inflammation of your joints leads to pain, stiffness and swelling. Certain foods contribute to inflammation in your body, and therefore to your pain, while others (like vegetables) help to relieve it.

 

It’s not only foods, of course. What you drink also plays a role. If you want to overcome arthritis, the following four beverages would be better off avoided.

 

  1. Milk

 

In a survey of over 1,000 arthritis patients, dairy products, including milk, were among the top foods linked to a worsening of pain. The problem in the dairy is the protein, not the fat, so all types (whole, skim, 2%) may be better off avoided.

 

Clement Michet, MD, a rheumatologist and professor from Mayo Clinic, told Everyday Health:

 

“RA [rheumatoid arthritis] symptoms may flare as a response to specific proteins found in dairy products. Some people with rheumatoid arthritis who report intolerance to milk have antibodies to milk proteins …

 

The body forms these antibodies to protect itself from what it mistakenly perceives as a harmful substance, but the antibodies attack other parts of the body in addition to the milk.”

 

  1. Energy Drinks

 

The same survey referenced above also found caffeine to be a common trigger for arthritis symptoms. However, research on this is murky, with some studies showing a potential benefit and others a risk.

 

Because energy drinks can contain multiple times the amount of caffeine found in a typical cup of coffee, drinking them can easily lead to caffeine overload and associated arthritis symptoms.

 

In people with the arthritic condition gout, for instance, drinking more than four servings of caffeinated drinks in the previous 24 hours was linked to an 80 percent increased risk of recurrent gout attacks. If you’re sensitive to caffeine, you may also find coffee to be problematic, and if so that should also be eliminated.

 

  1. Beer

 

Unless it is specifically labelled gluten-free, most beer is made from gluten-containing grains. In people who are sensitive, gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley, may provoke an innate immune response that may trigger symptoms such as joint pain hours or days after the gluten is consumed. While many are familiar with gluten in grains such as wheat, beer is often overlooked.

 

One study published in the Oxford Journal of Rheumatology even found that 41 percent of rheumatoid arthritis patients improved after following a gluten-free vegan diet.

 

  1. Soda

 

Harvard researchers have revealed that the more sugary the soda is,  men with knee osteoarthritis drink, the more likely is that the condition for men with knee osteoarthritis will get worse.

 

Even though increased consumption of soda is linked to weight gain, a known risk factor for osteoarthritis, the link was true regardless of the men’s weight.

 

This suggests the soda itself may be responsible for worsening the arthritis, perhaps again by causing inflammation (sugar is highly inflammatory), although a cause-and-effect link has not been proven. Soda is also a source of caffeine, which may also worsen symptoms in some people.

What to Drink to Overcome Arthritis?

 

Drink This to Overcome Arthritis: 4 Best Choices

 

  1. Blueberry Juice

 

Regular consumption of pure blueberry juice may also help reduce inflammation and associated pain, as, like tart cherries, blueberries contain anthocyanins that help ward off both inflammation and oxidative stress.

 

Eating blueberries daily for six weeks increases anti-inflammatory molecules called cytokines, even if your body is engaging in strenuous exercise, which is known to trigger an inflammatory state. This suggests blueberry juice may also offer a protective effect against inflammation and pain.

 

  1. Green Tea

 

Drinking adequate amounts of green tea may play a role in the prevention of inflammation-related diseases, as it is rich in natural anti-inflammatory compounds called flavonoids.

 

Green tea has been shown to actively increase anti-inflammatory substances while decreasing pro-inflammatory substances in studies, and has been suggested as a potential treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and other types of pain.

 

  1. Tart Cherry Juice

 

Consuming tart cherry juice reduces important markers of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein (CRP), while a tart cherry-enriched diets reduces plasma inflammation, abdominal fat inflammation, and cardiac inflammation, all known risk factors for cardiovascular disease. This is because tart cherries are rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins that yield powerful anti-inflammatory benefits.

 

Tart cherries have actually been said to have the highest anti-inflammatory content of any food, at levels comparable to some well-known medications.

 

Their juice is valued for its pain-reducing effects in arthritis and joint pain, but virtually any type of anti-inflammatory pain may be better managed with tart cherry juice. You can find tart cherry juice, often in concentrated form, at many supermarkets and health food stores.

 

  1. Kefir

 

Another anti-inflammatory marvel, kefir is made from fermented milk and is a rich source of beneficial bacteria known as probiotics. These good bacteria help curb systemic inflammation; one recent study found that people with inflammatory conditions like ulcerative colitis had lower levels of inflammation after taking a probiotic supplement for 8 weeks.

 

Even healthy people who took probiotics had a reduction in inflammation compared to those taking a placebo — and less inflammation translates to less pain.

 

Kefir, in particular, is known to contain anti-inflammatory prebiotic compounds, and you can get far more beneficial bacteria from regularly drinking kefir than you can from taking a probiotic supplement … particularly if you make your own at home (all you need is kefir grains (available online) and milk to make your own homemade kefir!).

Why Chronic Inflammation is really the Proven Cause of Illnesses?

 

Why Chronic Inflammation is really the Proven Cause of Illnesses? Chronic inflammation is abnormal and does not benefit the body; in fact, chronic inflammation is involved in a number of disease states. Read on to find out how you can stop chronic inflammation from occurring in your body.
Click HERE To Find Out How You Can End Chronic Inflammation and its Related Symptoms!

 

Inflammation is an innate biological process that, like stress, is good for you in small amounts … and detrimental if it becomes chronic. Typical healthy inflammation is the type of reaction that occurs when you, say, sprain your ankle.

 

The area becomes inflamed, which basically means you’re probably experiencing heat, pain, redness and swelling in the area. If you could take a microscope and see beneath your skin, you’d also notice your immune system being called into action.

 

During the normal process of acute inflammation, blood vessels become dilated and permeability increases to improve blood flow to the injured area.

 

Immune cells, including neutrophils, are called to the area as well, to engulf or kill invading organisms. They also release cytokines that help trigger a systemic inflammatory response (if necessary) such as fever or an increase in white blood cells.

 

In some cases, however, this call for immune action doesn’t get turned off as it should after the illness or injury goes away. Instead, your body remains in a state of chronic inflammation in which your immune cells continue to release pro-inflammatory chemicals and free radicals.

 

You may not know that your body is silently simmering … but eventually inflammatory diseases or other inflammation-related damage can result. As explained by the Linus Pauling Institute:

 

“If the stimulus persists, inflammation can last days, months, and even years. Chronic inflammation is primarily mediated by monocytes and long-lived macrophages … Macrophages and other leukocytes [immune system cells] release ROS [reactive oxygen species] and proteases that destroy the source of inflammation; however, damage to the body’s own tissues often results.

 

In fact, tissue damage is a hallmark of chronic inflammation. Another characteristic of chronic inflammation is repair of the damaged tissue by replacement with cells of the same type or with fibrous connective tissue.

 

An important part of the inflammatory process involves local angiogenesis—the development of new blood vessels. In some instances, the body is unable to repair tissue damage, and the inflammatory cascade continues. Chronic inflammation is abnormal and does not benefit the body; in fact, chronic inflammation is involved in a number of disease states.”

 

Many factors can trigger chronic inflammation. Obesity, for instance, makes you prone to chronic inflammation, as does suffering from frequent infections. If you smoke, are extremely stressed or eat a primarily processed food diet, chronic inflammation is likely, too.

 

Exposure to environmental pollution is another common chronic inflammation trigger … even lack of sleep can trigger inflammatory processes. Once chronic inflammation begins, it can persist for weeks, months or years, leading to the following health issues.

11 Ways Chronic Inflammation Harms You

 

  1. Digestive Issues

 

The definition of inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic inflammation of your digestive tract. This can manifest as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and more, with symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain and cramping, and blood in your stool.

 

Gastritis, which can lead to upper abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting (or no symptoms at all), is caused by an inflammation of the lining of your stomach.

 

  1. Joint Pain

 

Joint pain is a common result of inflammation in your joints. In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, it is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in your joints.

 

With anklylosing spondylitis, another rheumatic disease, inflammation occurs at the site where certain ligaments or tendons attach to bone (enthesis). Some erosion of bone at the site of the attachment (enthesopathy) follows this.

 

As the inflammation subsides, a healing process takes place and new bone develops. Movement becomes restricted where bone replaces the elastic tissue of ligaments or tendons. Repetition of this inflammatory process leads to further bone formation causing backbones and vertebrae to fuse together.

 

Even in the case of osteoarthritis, which is characterized by degeneration of the joints and has long been described as “non-inflammatory arthritis,” inflammation is now thought to play a strong role.

 

  1. Heart Disease

 

Elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation in your body, are associated with an increased risk of heart disease. One study found that, out of 12 heart-disease risk markers measured, high CRP was the strongest predictor of the risk of cardiovascular events. Even among women with low LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, elevated CRP was still a significant predictor of heart risks.

 

  1. Depression

 

Cytokines are chemical messengers that signal cells of your immune system, helping your body to heal from injury. However, cytokines can be either anti-inflammatory or pro-inflammatory, and when your body is in an inflammatory state, production of pro-inflammatory cytokines is increased.

 

High levels of cytokines, in turn, may contribute to depression. One study found, for instance, that people with depression had significantly higher levels of the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-alpha, and lower levels of anti-inflammatory cytokines, than people without depression.

 

As reported in the journal Neuroscience, inflammatory cytokines play an important role in brain function, but when exposure becomes chronic it can negatively influence your mental health:

 

“Mounting evidence indicates that inflammatory cytokines contribute to the development of depression in both medically ill and medically healthy individuals. Cytokines are important for development and normal brain function, and have the ability to influence neurocircuitry and neurotransmitter systems to produce behavioral alterations.

 

Acutely, inflammatory cytokine administration or activation of the innate immune system produces adaptive behavioral responses that promote conservation of energy to combat infection or recovery from injury. However, chronic exposure to elevated inflammatory cytokines and persistent alterations in neurotransmitter systems can lead to neuropsychiatric disorders and depression.”

 

It’s thought that cytokines may activate inflammatory signaling pathways in your brain and decrease growth factors, such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which may play a role in helping damaged nerve cells regenerate.

 

  1. Oral Health

 

Inflammation of your gums is known as periodontitis, or gum disease. If not treated, it can damage the soft tissue and bone that supports your teeth, and this inflammatory infection is linked to damage elsewhere in your body as well, including heart disease and dementia. According to research in Dentistry iQ:

 

“It is increasingly evident that chronic inflammatory conditions in one organ or tissue of the body may produce systemic effects with deleterious consequences. For example, an increased level of C-reactive protein is a risk factor for atherosclerosis, and is correlated with levels of periodontal inflammation.  Some evidence now points to a contributory or causative role for periodontitis in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.”

 

  1. Bone Loss and Damage

 

Chronic inflammation interferes with bone growth and often leads to bone loss when it occurs in areas close to bone (such as in rheumatoid arthritis and periodontitis). According to a study in the journal Immunological Investigations:

 

“This [bone loss due to chronic inflammation] is mainly due to local formation of bone resorbing osteoclasts which degrade bone without any subsequent coupling to new bone formation.”

 

  1. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

 

If you or someone you love has COPD, you should know that inflammation plays a primary role (hence the common use of anti-inflammatory medications). As reported in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology:

 

“Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive syndrome of expiratory airflow limitation caused by chronic inflammation of the airways and lung parenchyma.

 

The airway inflammatory response in COPD is initiated by smoking in the overwhelming majority of cases, and chronic exposure to cigarette smoke initiates a series of events that causes damage to central airways, peripheral airways, and terminal airspaces, leading to physiologic and clinical abnormalities.”

 

  1. Cancer

 

Many different types of cancer, including breast, lung, esophagus, cervix and digestive tract, have been linked to inflammation. Research presented at a meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research found that teens with high levels of inflammation had a 63 percent increased risk of developing colorectal cancer, compared with those with low levels of inflammation. Mansour Mohamadzadeh, PhD, director of the Center for Inflammation and Mucosal Immunology at the University of Florida told Health:

 

“When immune cells begin to produce inflammation, immune regulation becomes deteriorated and it creates an optimal environment for cancer cells to grow.”

 

  1. Dementia

 

Dementia including Alzheimer’s disease is also thought to be worsened or triggered by chronic inflammation, which is known to increase the generation of amyloid-beta protein. Clumps of beta-amyloid protein are thought to damage and destroy brain cells.

 

  1. Accelerated Aging

 

Chronic inflammation is known to trigger the release of powerful free radicals that accelerate the aging process. In one study, researchers were able induce premature aging by triggering low-grade chronic inflammation.

 

  1. Pain

 

Chronic inflammation is at the root of many painful conditions, and it also can trigger pain directly. As explained by Medical News Today:

 

Inflammation primarily causes pain because the swelling pushes against the sensitive nerve endings, which send pain signals to the brain.

 

Nerve endings send pain signals to the brain all day long; however, it learns to ignore most of them, unless pressure against the nerve endings increases. Other biochemical processes also occur during inflammation, which affect how nerves behave, and cause pain.”

 

Because of the inflammation component, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are often given as a first-line treatment for pain. However, there are natural techniques to lessen inflammation in your body.

 

Try limiting refined foods and sugar, which are pro-inflammatory, and focus instead on eating an anti-inflammatory diet. You should also embrace relaxation strategies, as stress can cause and exacerbate inflammation.

 

And, importantly, try the all-natural anti-inflammatory Heal-n-Soothe, which has nature’s MOST POWERFUL INFLAMMATION-FIGHTING INGREDIENTS — including proteolytic enzymes, which are a MUST to fight chronic inflammation!
