Natural remedies for rheumatoid arthritis, is there such a thing?
Rheumatoid Arthritis is common in a lot of people and can be very painful. It is also not only the elderly that suffer, there are young children also suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis as well. Not something you want to live with and have a good quality of life.
When I lived in London where it is cold and damp a lot of the time I had pain in my hip and my wrist. 2 places I damaged as a child. In the winter my left arm was always bandaged up and sometimes in a sling as the pain was so bad I could not use it. I moved to Australia and spent 10 years there, I found living in a warmer climate all of my aches and pain went away.
After 10 years I went back to London again and guess what. The pains came back. Living with RA is not pleasant. I now live in Florida USA, very nice and warm all year round and I am very pleased to report I do not have any pain at all. Keeping in mind I also follow what I am about to share with you.
We get told every time we have an injury when we are young that it will turn into arthritis when we get older. Everything I have been told, when I get to a ripe old age, I should not be able to move with the amount of times I have been told my injury will turn into Rheumatoid Arthritis.:)
When we keep getting told these things we then expect this to happen and accept this fact when we do start to get reduced mobility in our joints. Suffering with pain and limited mobility can be depressing, to say the least. This is brain washing. We take in the information and we store it in our brains and we re-collect and then add to it and make it bigger every time. The brain obliges us with our wishes and we then get what we focus on….PAIN!!!!
However changing the way we look at things, stressing less about the program we have been given, (that we will have rheumatoid arthritis) can change the outcome. Eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, listening to motivational sayings, surrounding yourself with positive people. Also the most important having a positive mindset to your health and well-being.
Those of you that already have the symptoms and are suffering with pain and the restricted movement, there is hope and there are natural remedies you can add to your regime.
The following is a list that will help
- Ginger – anti-inflammatory
- Tumeric – anti-inflammatory
- Bosweilla – anti-inflammatory
- Positive Thinking
All of the above can be used together to give amazing results. However, you have to figure out what works best for you. What works for one person does not necessarily work for someone else. Testing different foods, and supplements so you can add or eliminate what works for you is the best way to go.(Consult your doctor before changing or reducing any medication)
Using Epsom Salts and soaking in a bath will also help relieve the pain and release toxins. This is an old remedy but a good one.!
Diet and anti-inflammatory foods help reduce pain and I wrote about this in another article here.
Best Places to Live with Arthritis
Definitely warm countries.
- Hot Springs in Japan,
- Adelaide Australia
Remember to also Tap into your Emotions
There is always an emotional part to all suffering and pain. The emotions get triggered throughout your life and this can make the pain worse. Tapping into your emotions using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) really helps release the blockages. Makes you feel better emotionally and also helps with pain reductions. All this without taking any meds. 🙂 Positive mindset and tapping away the negative is a sure way to healthy mind and body.
Please remember to check with your medical practitioner before changing or reducing medications!
There is always an alternative and there is always something that will help. Research what is best for you and work with what works for you. You may have to change things up from time to time but that is ok. Especially notice what triggers a flare-up.
Remember your emotions are connected to your pain so getting stressed and upset over your symptoms will make them worse not better.
Please share this post so others can benefit and I would love to hear your comments on what works for you….
