Alternative Medicine Resources - Natural Ways in Which to Relieve the Pain of Arthritis

A person who has arthritis knows all to well about the inflammation of the joints and what comes with it, and that would be pain, swelling of the afflicted area, stiffness and even redness. The symptoms can be anywhere from extremely mild to extremely severe and sometimes even disfiguring. Along with medication and exercise, there are some natural ways in which you can relieve the pain as well.

If you have arthritis you might be able to get some relief by getting some massage therapy done. This can treat the pain as well as the stiffness that is brought on by arthritis. The massage will stimulate more production of the endorphins in your body and the endorphins are our body's natural pain killers. Massage can also decrease the stress hormones as well as help to improve your sleep. Make sure that you pick a massage therapist that has a background with working with patients that have arthritis.

If the thought of needles don't bother you, then you might also want to check out acupuncture which everyone knows is an ancient Chinese practice that helps to relieve many things including pain. The needles are inserted in certain points of the body to stimulate certain areas in order to decrease the pain in other areas that need relief.

Diet can be an important factor as well. If you give your body the proper nutrition you can help the body handle the symptoms of arthritis a lot better. If your diet has a lot of saturated fats in it for instance the body will respond to inflammation more and the joints will suffer more inflammation. You should eat a variety of foods that make up a well balanced diet and you should also avoid a lot of sugar, too much salt, fat and cholesterol. Alcohol should also be consumed in moderation.

There are some supplements that can be taken as well that will help with the pain and inflammation. One for instance is S-adenosylmethionine or SAMe occurs in the body naturally but sometimes you might need more. If that is the case you can take the supplement and it will be absorbed into the body quite easily. This is very expensive so it might be wise to think about this one before taking it. You also should talk to your doctor about it as well.

Another one is called glucosamine sulfate and this is a nutrient that includes anti-inflammatory properties that has less toxic effects on the body than ibuprofen and naproxen. This is especially good for those who have osteoarthritis and it will also help to prevent cartilage loss.

Eating lots of fish or taking fish oil pills can also be of benefit for those suffering with arthritis. It's the omega-2 fatty acids in the fish oil that will help to relieve the pain and joint tenderness often found with those who are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

You might also want to consider taking more vitamins A, B1, B3, E and B6 since all of these vitamins have the ability to help increase your flexibility and can in some people even prevent them from getting arthritis in the future.
