Arthritis Pain

Innisfil Scope

Symptoms of arthritis include pain and limited function of joints. Inflammation of the joints from arthritis is characterized by joint stiffness, swelling, redness, tenderness and warmth. The joints are usually affected especially the knees and elbows.
When the lubricant between joints and cartilage (synovial fluid) is damaged, then the ends of the bones rub against each other and cause pain. This is known as osteo-arthritis.
To help in the prevention of arthritis, anti-oxidants are key. They ensure that the cartilage remains fairly intact. Treatment of arthritis can be accomplished by eating fruits and vegetables as they are very good sources of antioxidants. Processed foods, carbohydrates, coffee, fried foods and refined sugar are should be eliminated. High fiber foods, minimum fat and flavonoid rich foods like cherries help to minimize joint destruction.
One very effective cure is the naturally occurring glucosamine sulfate, because it helps connective tissue to be formed. External supplements of glucosamine sulfate, chondrotin sulfate, collagen and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) has been known to work wonders when combined with exercise and proper nutrition.

Changing your lifestyle can do wonders for arthritis. Your diet plays an important part in controlling arthritis. A low protein diet, no milk or milk products, no polyunsaturated oils, an increase in omega3 fatty acids will give great relief. Also yoga, relaxation techniques, and meditation have also known to be effective natural remedies for arthritis.

For arthritis, ‘change is as good as a rest’!

Health & Happiness,
