12 Proven Alternative Treatments For Arthritis - Kill The Pain Relieve Inflammation

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and swelling of the joints and gradual loss of mobility over time. There are many different types of arthritis that can be caused by a variety of triggers including auto-immune diseases, heredity and obesity. Each type of arthritis has its own unique set of symptoms.

Many people rely on conventional treatments consisting of either surgery or strong medications to cope with the pain caused by arthritis, but there are many natural and alternative remedies that are effective and less harmful to the body. One of the best ways to manage arthritis is to modify the diet by eliminating certain foods such as gluten and nightshade vegetables, and consuming larger quantities of water, and alkaline fresh fruits and vegetables. Some sufferers have been able to eliminate certain forms of arthritis altogether through a combination of natural remedies and a specialized diet. If you’re taking medications for your condition, it’s best to consult your health practitioner before introducing alternative remedies, herbs or a change in diet.

Pectin and Grape Juice

According to the “The People’s Pharmacy Guide to Home and Herbal Remedies,” a pectin and grape juice mixture removes the toxins from the blood that can be deposited in the joints causing painful arthritis and gout. Pectin is a natural substance that is found in the cell walls and fibrous sections of many fruits such as apples and lemons. Grape juice is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and Quercetin, all of which have been found to reduce inflammation. Purple grape juice also contains anthocyanins which are also known to possess anti-inflammatory properties. You can relieve arthritis pain by mixing 3oz of grape juice with 2 tsp of pectin and drinking 3 times daily or drinking 8oz of grape juice with 1 tbsp. of pectin once per day according to The People’s Pharmacy. Always look for pectin that is organic free from MSG such as the variety sold in health food stores.

Foods High in Potassium

Another way to lower your body’s pH to reduce inflammation and pain is to consume foods that are high in potassium on a regular basis. Potassium is an essential mineral that helps the kidneys to expel waste and toxins from the body. Keeping the body in a slightly alkaline state with a pH of 7.2 prevents certain waste materials such as uric acid from solidifying in the blood, urine and kidneys. Uric acid crystals are sometimes deposited in the joints instead of being eliminated from the body and can lead to painful conditions such as gout. Lemon water is rich in potassium and creates an alkaline-forming state within the body. Prepare lemon water by squeezing the juice of half a lemon into a glass of warm water and consume as soon as you wake up to expel waste and toxins from the body.
