Switching to Natural Arthritis Pain Relief

Jun 23, 2008
Arthritis is a crippling disease that currently affects millions of individuals in the United States alone. There are many different types of treatments available for people who suffer from arthritis, both natural and chemical.

There are many good reasons to avoid chemical based prescriptions and over-the-counter medications including potential addictions, side effects, and the high costs associated with these types of medications.

Although many individuals have considered switching to natural arthritis pain relief, they haven't yet made the change.

So why are people still hesitant? Some may believe that natural medicine is not as effective as the standard medical treatments that they are currently using. This is actually a common misconception. Then again, there are many who simply are quite comfortable with the arthritis treatment that they are on, and are not quite prepared to make the switch.

However, if you're reading this, then chances are that you're probably interested in a natural answer for this crippling condition. Read on to learn the many benefits associated with natural remedies for arthritis.

The years of research and clinical trials that have been conducted conclude that there are many people who find that they actually do experience considerable relief with natural substitutes. The wonderful thing about natural arthritis pain relief is that it can address a particular health issue, or certain symptoms, without leading to potentially life threatening side effects or problems.

There are several symptoms that you may experience when arthritis stikes. The following are some of these:

1. Most arthritis sufferers experience stiffness in one or more locations throughout the body.

2. You may also suffer from swelling in certain areas of the body. This is most common in and around the joints.

3. Pain may experienced throughout the body. Most of the time however, it's more prevalent in the hands, wrists, hip, knees and feet.

4. Seeing that the body views the joints and the fluid that surrounds those joints as something that is "foreign", the immune system will immediately jump into action to try to eliminate this "intruder". When this happens, it is common for the sufferer to develop a fever.

5. Fluctuating body temperature is also a common symptom. You may feel quite warm, and then become rather cool. Some may even feel chilled. These are all common symptoms of arthritis.

Natural Arthritis Treatments

There are more to natural arthritis treatments than simply taking herbs and natural supplements. To start relieving the symptoms of arthritis, one of the first places that you should start is with your weight. To shed a few pounds, you could consider creating a new exercise and diet regime. This will help to eliminate a lot of the pressure that may putting extra stress on your joints.

You may also consider pain management counseling. This will allow you the opportunity to develop coping strategies for the pain that you experience without having to resort to dangerous chemical based medicine.

The next natural approach that you can take is to stock up on some vitamins and similar types of supplements. All of the vitamins in the B groups are considered quite effective. Furthermore, vitamin E, and many others are quite useful.

If you want relief without all the expense, trouble, and potentially devastating side effects, you should consider natural medicine for arthritis. You will feel better, and your overall quality of life will be drastically improved.
