      Looking for natural ways to relieve Arthritis pain?

      Pain from Arthritis can leave you feeling debilitated and helpless. Besides your regular medication, here are some natural ways to help you cope up with the pain and manage it.

      Acupuncture

      Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy that really works. This involves inserting tiny needles into specific pressure points on your body which helps to balance the body energies. This brings relief from pain. Choose a licensed and certified acupuncturist in your state.

      Lose weight

      Excess weight increases the pain from arthritis as it increases the pressure on your joints especially the ones on your knees, hips and feet. Losing weight is beneficial in many ways, not only does it not bring down the stress on your joints, it also brings down pain and helps to prevent further damage to the joints.

      Massage

      Try massages, they not only uplift your mood, they help relieve stiffness, reduce pain and give you more maneuverability.  Go for regular massages but make sure that you do it with a massage therapist who has had experience working with people who have arthritis.

      Hot & Cold Therapy

      Hot and cold treatments look simple but they work quite well. Go in for a long and warm shower or bath especially the morning as this will bring down the stiffness in the joints. During nights, use an electric blanket nor a moist heating pad to provide relief. Cold treatments help to reduce joint pain, swelling and inflammation, a gel ice pack should do the trick.

      Include turmeric in your menu

      Turmeric is an ingredient popularly used in Indian dishes and has a chemical called curcumin which helps to bring down pain from arthritis. Add this spice to your dishes.

      Tried herbs yet?

      Certain herbs such as boswellia, thunder god vine, bromelain, devil’s claw, ginkgo and stinging nettle can help in relieving arthritic pain. However, you must consult your physician before trying any of these to prevent any kind of negative reactions or interactions with your drugs.
