13 Home Remedies Are Effective Against Arthritis

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

13 Home Remedies Are Effective Against Arthritis

These 13 home remedies are effective against arthritis

Arthritis is a type of disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints in the body. The condition affects approximately 350 million people worldwide, with osteoarthritis being the most common type. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the united states, with over 20 million people affected by it. 

 

Arthritis can be triggered by severe bouts of inflammation, which occur when chemicals are released from the body into the bloodstream, or damaged tissue areas. This chemical release eventually aggravates the nerves, which results in a great deal of pain. Rheumatoid arthritis can even cause disfigurement of the hands. 

 

We're going to discuss 13 tips for taking preventative measures against the disease, as well as how to alleviate its symptoms if it's already present. When discussing arthritis, it's crucial to familiarize yourself with the different types of classes and associated symptoms.

 

Editor's note: the remedies listed here are not a substitute for medical treatment. Please consult with your doctor if you're experiencing symptoms.

 

Classes of arthritis


    Osteoarthritis
    Rheumatoid arthritis
    Juvenile idiopathic arthritis
    Septic arthritis
    Ankylosing spondylitis
    Gout and pseudo-gout
    Still's disease


Symptoms of arthritis


    Redness
    Joint stiffness
    Loss of joint function
    Joint swelling
    Joint pain
    Muscle stiffness
    Fatigue/loss of energy
    Fever
    Chills
    Headaches
    Loss of appetite


Here are 13 natural remedies to prevent arthritis:

1. Exercise

Retain mobility in your joints by exercising regularly. Exercising will help control the excess pressure and strain that inflames the joint. It will also help strengthen the muscles that support the joint, and keep your joints fully lubricated. Always warm up properly before performing any stretching exercises. It's also a good idea to follow a healthy diet, and go for a walk every day. 

2. Massage

There's nothing quite as soothing for your aching joints and muscles as getting a massage. Massaging with mustard oil might seem a bit out of the ordinary, but it works. The oil helps reduce joint pain and inflammation. You can prepare a homemade mustard oil mix as follows: 

Directions:


    Heat a little mustard oil until it becomes slightly warm. Onion juice may be added if there is swelling. 
    Rub the oil gently over the painful joint or joints before covering it with plastic wrap. 
    Apply warm towels to the swelling joints, and repeat on a daily basis or until swelling goes down. 


3. Epsom salt

 

Magnesium relaxes the muscles and nerve endings, which become aggravated by the inflammation. Dunking your hands in a bowl of water with epsom salt can help alleviate the discomfort. It's also a great source of magnesium, which regulates the ph balance levels in the body. The salt keeps the ph levels low to prevent inflammation. Here's how to prepare an epsom salt mixture:

Directions:


    Fill a large bowl with warm water, and add a half cup of epsom salt. Make sure you stir the contents of the bowl. 
    Dunk your hands or affected joints in the bowl. Alternatively, you may want to fill a tub with warm water and add 2 cups of epsom salt to allow more room for larger joints, such as the knees. 
    Soak your joints for approximately 15 minutes. Soak daily. 


4. Turmeric

Turmeric helps to reduce painful swelling and joint inflammation. The dark yellow spice promotes healthy functioning of the joints, keeps your immune system well-protected, and improves digestion. It's also excellent for reducing pain among people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. The yellow powder can even be mixed together with green tea, and here's the delicious recipe:

Directions:


    1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    2 cups of water
    1 teaspoon of honey for a little flavoring


 

5. Increase your magnesium intake

Magnesium is essential for absorbing calcium, which strengthens the bones. Magnesium supplements can relieve pain and rebuild bone tissue. Eat more foods that are high in magnesium, such as beans, nuts, whole grains, dark leafy greens, and fish. Magnesium oils and supplements can be purchased at any local health store. It's important to maintain high bone density to thwart the pain. 

6. Extra virgin olive oil

Extra virgin olive oil acts like a natural aspirin to help heal painful joints. The oil contains the inflammatory enzymes cox-1 and cox-2, which help lubricate your joints and provide you with instant pain relief. You can either rub a bit of the olive oil on the affected joints or consume 2-3 teaspoons of it. 

7. Ginger

 

Ginger can reduce swelling and stiffness in the joints due to the high anti-inflammatory components found inside. Eating raw ginger on a regular basis can help alleviate pain by improving blood circulation. Ginger may be added to green tea to create a great healing solution. Here is an easy recipe you can make if you don't enjoy the taste of raw ginger:

Directions:


    Fill a bowl with 6 teaspoons of dried ginger, 6 teaspoons of caraway seeds, and 3 teaspoons of black pepper. Mix well. 
    Consume half a teaspoon of the mixture with a glass of water after each meal. 


8. Fish oil

Popular fish oil supplements are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, epa and dha, which are used to combat arthritis. The fatty acids also boost your immune system, fighting off swelling or achy joints. Fish oil also improves your cardiovascular system and helps prevent blood clots. Cold water fish should be added your dietary plan, but if you don't enjoy eating fish, a capsule of fish oil will suffice. 

9. Cayenne ointment

The capsaicin of the cayenne pepper acts as a natural dopamine to block out pain signals from the neurological system. It disrupts the substance p, which transmits pain signals to the brain. Cayenne ointment may be applied to the joints to relieve the pain. You can prepare your own treatment with these easy-to-follow instructions:

What 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 glass jar with a tightly fitting lid
    A double boiler


Directions:


    Mix 3 tablespoons of cayenne powder together with a cup of your oil of choice. 
    Heat the oily mixture in a double boiler for 5-10 minutes on medium heat. 
    Stir in a half cup of grated beeswax until the substance has fully melted down and everything is blended together. 
    Keep the cayenne mixture chilled in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and then whisk. Repeat the step for an additional 10-15 minutes.
    Pour into a glass jar with a tightly fitting lid in the refrigerator, and apply daily. 


10. Cinnamon 

 

The anti-microbial, anti-carcinogenic, and antioxidant properties contained in cinnamon help repair damaged tissues and increase bone density. The powerful spice is an ideal wonder drug for people suffering from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Cinnamon blends well with honey, and helps soothe the discomforting areas.

Mix a half teaspoon of cinnamon powder with a tablespoon of honey, into a cup of warm water or add the combination to your tea. A honey cinnamon paste can be made, and massaged gently over the painful areas.

11. Peppermint eucalyptus oil blend

Peppermint and eucalyptus oil, when combined, offer a soothing sensation to the achy arthritic joints. Here's how to prepare the mixture: 

What you will need:


    5-10 drops of eucalyptus oil
    5-10 drops of peppermint 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 add 1-2 tablespoons of carrier oil to the mixture. 
    Carrier oil dilutes the essential oil, to prevent skin irritation. 
    Keep the concoction stored in a dark glass bottle, far away from direct sunlight. 


 

12. Cherries

Cherries are excellent sources of magnesium and potassium, both vital components for treating joint discomfort and pain. The potassium acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. Make sure you eat a handful of cherries every day to keep the inflammation away! you can prepare a homemade cherry syrup by boiling a few cherries in water for a couple of minutes. Once the water thoroughly boils, it will form into a sweet tasting syrup. 

13. Juniper berry tea

Juniper berries are used to treat arthritic pain, nerve pain and gout. They contain the powerful anti-inflammatory compound, known as terpinen-4-ol. Note: pregnant women should not drink juniper tea because it can lead to miscarriages.

Here's how to prepare juniper tea: 

What you will need:


    1 tablespoon of dried juniper berries
    1 cup of fresh water
    A teaspoon of honey 


Directions:


    Place a tablespoon of fresh juniper berries into a cup of boiled water. Add a teaspoon of honey to increase the flavor. 
    Pour the boiling water over the berries, and allow them to soak for 20 minutes before straining. 
    Drink the tea twice per day.

Hi doc, this is regarding discoloration of semen. I am 18. Not a virgin. Lost it in June’17. Ive always masturbated and come across acne on my head. Hence I take breaks in between. I recently hooked up (protected) and did not ejaculate. It’d been almost 1.5 months since I had last ejaculated when I masturbated yesterday and found out my semen to appear yellow in colour. This has never happened. Its always white! I m anxious. Do not know what to do about it. Also I personally wanted to ask if masturbation causes acne. Because thats the main reason why I stop masturbating for a long while in between. And if not then how often should I do it? Is the yellowing of the semen because of the sexual intercourse? It worries me a lot. I am taking a lot of stress.

Hello- Long-term abusive/over masturbation results in serious acne through a variety of pathological means, such as an imbalance of androgen hormones that results in over production of sebum by the sebaceous glands, a lack of the inhibition of acne bacteria growth, and abnormal keratinization and comedone formation. Delayed ejaculation (under masturbation) leads to mixing of urine with semen, thus causing it to appear yellowish. Masturbate once in a week regularly to avoid both these issues and reduce spices or spicy fast foods in your meals, your both problems will be solved.
