elderlyman 210x135 4 Treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Arthritis is an autoimmune disease which causes joints to suffer. About 22% of adults report having doctor-diagnosed arthritis, with 50% of adults over 65 reporting an arthritis diagnosis. One of the most common forms of arthritis is rheumatoid arthritis, which sends millions of people to seek medical attention every year. The medical establishment continues to push drugs and surgery as treatments for such conditions, but there is little time spent focusing on preventative measures. Preventing arthritis from manifesting can be as easy as following these 5 simple methods, which can be used as potential treatments for rheumatoid arthritis or to help prevent the disease.

Treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis – Eat Foods with Anti-Inflammatory Benefits

Foods can be used as great natural treatments for rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis is caused by inflammation, and therefore anyone with arthritis or trying to prevent arthritis should consume anti-inflammatory foods. Some of these foods can be ginger, turmeric, and many fruit and vegetables. Ideally, all food sources should be organic to attain the greatest amount of benefits possible while avoiding any harmful effects that are tied with conventionally produced food. Turmeric is one such food that has been shown to be a powerful inflammation-fighter, and can be great as a natural arthritis treatment.

Consume High-Quality Omega-3 Fatty Acids

High-quality omega-3 fatty acids can work wonders on the body. These fatty acids have been shown to be essential to the body for reducing inflammation. They also provide such benefits as supporting eye sight, memory, mood, and overall bone health

Up Vitamin D Intake

Although vitamin D deficiencies are rampant in the US, it seems they are especially very common among individuals facing autoimmune diseases such as arthritis.Vitamin D has risen as one of the most beneficial vitamins to have – and for goof reason. Vitamin d supports mood, bone health, the immune system, inhibits inflammation, and is an overall protector against disease.

Do Your Best to Control Emotional Trauma

Emotional trauma is certainly not something to overlook when seeking to treat or prevent disease, and is something that can greatly contribute to arthritis especially. Sometimes rheumatoid arthritis is caused by infection, leading to a biological disruption in the body. During this time, the immune system becomes impaired and can not properly fight off infection. For one of the treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, tt is important to use some method of stress reduction such as Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and/or stress reducing CD’s.

    2 1/2 yrs ago, I went gluten and dairy free. I also do my best to avoid MSG (natural flavors, spices, any sort of flavoring) and the GMO crops. I initially did it in support of my child who was on the diet and had many different symptoms for years and was very, very sick. After 2-3 days, I noticed that the nagging pain in my right side and my feet didn't hurt as much as they had. In addition, I thought that I had arthritis as many in my family do, thinking that I had it in my lower back, left hip, knees and feet. Within a couple of weeks, my pains had subsided quite a bit. I was pretty good staying true to the diet for the first month or so. I cheated from time to time and my pains came right back. After about a year, I woke up one morning and thought, geez, I feel great, like I was at least 10 years younger than my age of 53.

    I had been a runner for somewhere between 20 and 25 years but quit because of my joint pain. After the first yr of the diet change, I thought, well, maybe I'll try running again, see what happens. Low and behold, it's now a year and a half later and I run 4.6 miles 3 x a week.

    Based on the article contents, I would add that there could quite easily be allergic issues that contribute to inflamation. My husband is gluten free. He alleviated his gastric reflux of 30 years and his joint pain. He is older than I am. Both of us describe the change in our health as nothing less than amazing. I told my dr and he looked up at me, did the eye roll and said, well, some people are sensitive. GRRRRR.
