Returning to perfect health, free of arthritis.

Hey thank for checking out my Health Blog. I want to really let you all know that you can really treat most of your everyday health problems naturally with even better results then prescription drug. Please don’t let doctor fool you. Just a little fact that you can research yourself, America is the only country who’s infrastructure is set up around a for profit health care system. This is why we have more millionaire and billionaire doctor’s then any other place in the world. My goal is to reinstate our natural health to the way it was before western medicine destroyed it. You can take your health back by just reading a little and exercising a little self discipline. In the bible it say the herds are for the healing of the earth. This is not a hoax or a lie you can naturally treat and LOWER high blood pressure. REPAIR damaged arteries and REVERSE heart disease.  ALLEVIATE the effects of diabetes.  EASE the pain of arthritis, and PREVENT Alzheimer’s and dementia naturally WITHOUT the side effects of drugs or the risks of surgery. If the body was meant to be opened it would have zipper on it I believe. So Nutrition is the key to optimal health, nutrition provides the body with the tools it needs to repair it’s self hence reverse disease. Nutritional deficiency is a root cause to many diseases. I guess the saying you are what you eat has a lot of truth too it.

Well in this blog I will address Arthritis. Arthritis is a big issue in the older communities and it’s a issue that can be eliminated through diet, herbs and essential oils. I will touch on a few of them but I am writing a e-book with all the details on how to eliminated Joint pain so check back for that.

I have discovered natural pain relievers that can give you the same joint pain relief without the side effects of Cox-2 inhibitors like Celebrex and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). I will reveal some natural alternatives that work by the same mechanism as Cox-2 inhibitors . They can deliver the pain relief you need, without the risks and side effects.

Shrink Your Carb Intake & Shrink Your Joints!

Most people who suffer from arthritis have no idea how much their diet affects their pain so thats the first place I start working with my patients. The biggest offender? Refined carbohydrates.

They actually inflame your joints and generate Cox-2s. People with rheumatoid arthritis have high levels of complex carbohydrates called glycosaminoglycans (or GAGs) in their joint tissues. Reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates like grain products and sugars, and you can lower your pain.

Heres something else you may not know: Mother Nature designed some foods specifically to ease your chronic joint pain and swelling. The best are high in Omega-3 fatty acids foods like wild fish and grass fed beef. Omega-3s have natural anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. In fact, increase your intake of Omega-3, and you could slow or even reverse your arthritis entirely! Ive seen it happen in my practice. When my patients apply this recommendation, they experience a tremendous improvement in their pain and mobility.

You may have heard by now that fish oil supplements can help increase your levels of Omega-3. Its true they can but theyre no replacement for getting your Omega-3s from natural sources. Try using a combination of supplementation and diet changes for the best results. For supplementation, I recommend 1 tablespoon of cod liver oil each day.

Could Your Arthritis Be An Allergic Reaction?

Some of your worst arthritis pain could be the result of an unidentified food allergy. Food allergies are much more common than most people realise, and they can cause you to do more than break out in hives. Heres how you can tell if food allergies are making your arthritis pain worse

Start looking for foods that increase your pain and swelling when you eat them. It may take a little detective work. I recommend using a food diary for a few weeks. Record everything you eat, and develop a system where you also record your level of arthritis pain within a few hours of your meals, using a scale of 1 to 10. One patient who suffered with rheumatoid arthritis for decades and had taken almost every NSAID on the market set out to identify his pain inducer. He was shocked at what he found. One of his swelling triggers was his favourite food pizza! By avoiding it, hes eliminated his painful inflammation.

Vitamins can help control pain as well

Why not try to manage your pain using vitamins? Its certainly working for other arthritis sufferers especially those that hurt because of the most common arthritis condition: osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis results from joint overuse or injury, and your risk increases as you age. But recent research shows supplementing with certain vitamins may relieve Cox-2-induced pain even slow its progression!

One of those vitamins is vitamin C. In clinical studies, pain sufferers taking average doses had a threefold reduction in pain and osteoarthritis progression. Beta carotene got similar results. But the most important vitamin for arthritis patients is vitamin D.

In study after study, supplementing with even small amounts of vitamin D eases inflammation from arthritis  and slows the progression of osteoarthritis. In fact, vitamin D deficiency may play a large role in the development of osteoarthritis to begin with. Researchers are now hypothesising that vitamin D deficiency may be an early indicator of not only arthritis risk, but risk of other inflammatory diseases such as heart disease.

Myths of Natural Pain Relief: The Truth Hurts
Glucosamine. Youve heard about it by now. Its been vigorously marketed for arthritis especially osteoarthritis. But Im sorry to say glucosamine is not very effective. So what about the studies used by the marketers?

As it turns out, more recent research has uncovered quality problems with those earlier trials. In fact, these new tests suggest glucosamines actual benefit is far less than originally reported. If you feel it has helped you, it is harmless and you could continue it, but most of my patients get better results with the other strategies outlined in this article.

Vitamin E is another nutrient sometimes touted as a solution for osteoarthritis pain. But controlled clinical trials found placebos worked just as well as vitamin E at reducing pain or stiffness and improving mobility.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) for Pain relief

I recommend MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). Ive seen arthritis patients find the kind of relief from pain and swelling with MSM that theyve only been able to achieve with prescription drugs.

MSM is an organic source of the mineral sulphur. (Dont confuse it with allergy-causing sulpha drugs.) The sulphur in MSM can regenerate your injured, overused, or damaged joint tissues and relieve arthritis pain. It is vital to maintaining your bodys pH balance and creating new tissue, including delicate joint and cartilage tissue.

Four Natural Ways to Relieve Pain & Inflammation
I always recommend trying dietary changes first. Then add in vitamins and nutrients. Finally, for more symptomatic management, you can try these four effective herbs as well:

Boswellin is a natural arthritis fighter worth trying. Its an Indian herb, frankincense actually. Although you probably wont hear people talking about it much, its not because it doesnt work. In fact, Ayurvedic medicine has used it for centuries to maintain joint health.

Today, boswellin has shown promise in relieving stiff, swollen joints of rheumatoid arthritis. It works by increasing blood supply to joints and reducing joint levels of glycosaminoglycans those inflammation-causing complex carbs I told you about earlier. You can buy it at health food stores in capsules.

White willow bark is an ancient joint-pain remedy dating back more than 2,400 years. According to ancient Greek manuscripts Hippocrates used it.

Some arthritis sufferers not only experienced pain relief, but increased mobility in their backs, knees, hips, and other joints. Youll find Cox-2-inhibiting white willow bark in a number of joint-pain remedies as well as individual supplements.

Red grape leaves also block Cox-2-induced pain naturally. Red grape leaves contain a powerful phytochemical called resveratrol. Its the same phytochemical found in grape juice and red wine. You can also find red grape leaves in 600mg capsules.

Holy basil is a special type of basil that contains dozens of Cox-2-blocking phytonutrients, including one called ursolic acid. I recommend 150mg capsules four times a day.

Tea & Spice For Taste & Pain Relief

Finally, you can grab a little spice right out of your kitchen cabinet and get a little extra relief. The next time youre cooking dinner, throw in some extra ginger, turmeric, rosemary, or oregano.

These spices contain anti-inflammatory compounds and Cox-2-blocking phyto- chemicals. Theyve reduced arthritis pain and inflammation, while increasing mobility, in study after study.

Instead of your morning cup of coffee, choose a mug of nutrient-rich green tea. Green tea contains 51 anti-inflammatory compounds, including Cox-2-inhibiting salicylic acid and polyphenols.
In a 1999 study, these compounds resulted in a marked reduction in Cox-2-induced arthritis. Try four cups of green tea a day and watch what happens. By the way, green tea and these other spices are all sold in capsules at your local health food store. But, like everything else, if you can eat or drink the real deal, its better.

Choosing The Natural Alternative Thats Right For You
You dont have to live with pain. Before you take prescription drugs with uncomfortable or even dangerous side effects, try natural pain relievers first. These work in similar ways as the prescription drugs do, and, in some cases, they do a better job of tackling your arthritis pain and swelling.

Not all of these will work for everyone, because everyones joint pain does not share the same root cause or the same triggers for swelling. Its a good idea to experiment until you find one (or a group) thats best for your body. You may discover you dont have to rely on over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers. Please write and let me know if any of the items talked about here work in anyway so we can pass the word on and continue to build on our natural health movement to reclaim our natural health without our prescription drugs and there side effects.
