A good home remedy for arthritis is a great and cost effective way for you to ease your pain. Although the early signs of arthritis are unclear, it is best to learn to recognize them whenever possible. Reason being that those early symptoms are the first indicators of the diagnosis that could change the way you do some of your favorite things.
There are of course some herbal remedies that can help you to combat arthritis. Guggulu is an excellent herb to use as a home remedy for arthritis. You don’t have to take much of the Guggulu, just a half teaspoon with warm water after a meal twice daily. If you don’t want to take something like that then you can prepare a paste consisting of one teaspoon of red chilies and fresh ginger into one half cup of sesame oil. This is nice to be rubbed into the affected area to get some relief. Camphor and cinnamon oil is also a remedy that can be very beneficial.
Cooked vegetables are good for you as well. Baked vegetables such as pumpkin, eggplant and many of the other vegetables you have grown to love can all be good for you if you suffer from arthritis. Many people swear by garlic to help them with many things, arthritis being one of them. Eating one or two teaspoons of garlic every day can help you in many ways. And you don’t have to just eat a clove of garlic raw, you can add it into the foods you are eating as well. That has been a favorite in my family for years as a preventative measure for many things, not just arthritis. The Mediterranean diet consists of many heart healthy fibers and nutrients, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids and also can form a remedy for arthritis. Mainly this works because of all the healthy things that can be accomplished by eating fish, which is why it is such a popular food.
Mixing two teaspoons of lemon juice in with a teaspoon of honey, mixed into a cup of warm water is another great home remedy for arthritis. Honey is one of natures wonders and can be used in several ways to help in healing you. There are of course so many bee products on the market today simply for the positive results it can bring. It’s no wonder that our ancestors valued it as an invaluable source for health.
Along with any list of things to-do should be a list of don’ts. There are of course certain things that can be done to make your arthritis a little worse. Some of the foods that you should avoid are too much alcohol, coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate, white sugar and yogurt as these are all things that can be harmful to arthritis patients. Foods that are hot and spicy should also be avoided along with potatoes and sweets. Eating a lot of calories each day can make your symptoms worse as well as that can add on extra pounds which will only make things worse all around.
If you only try one home remedy for arthritis you might not be as impressed as if you had tried a few of them mixed together. Why not take a chance to improve your health?
