Just interested to know if anyone has ever had anything like this.............

For over 20 years I have suffered on occassions a form of arthritis. It has never been diagnosed as anything other than a form of arthritis.

It started out in my elbow, (like tennis elbow) over the years moved to my hands and sometimes feet, and attacks any joint in them. It only lasts 24 to48 hours.Swells, very red and shiny and feels like your joint is going to explode the pain is so servere. The only wayI attack it, is with aspro products.It somewhat settles the pain to a degree, but the redness and swelling remain. Have been given anti-inflamatory,but would rathernot take them if I can help it. It looks like gout......but isn't!

RE: Arthritis Information wanted!

Hi,
i have had the odd bout of arthritis over the years, though nothing as bad as your symptoms.
I found the cause to be intolerances to certain foods/drinks such as coffee, red wine etc.

Might be worth having an allergy test to eliminate that avenue of cause.
My father had great success in keeping his arthritis at bay by simply taking honey each day (1 teaspoon with a cuppa) and cod liver oil capsules, this may not work for everyone but he never suffered badly again so might be worth a try.

All the best

RE: Arthritis Information wanted!

Hi aicoma, and Mistymin, have had allergy tests......nothing! Although at times I have thought of certain foods eg some fruits, but then when I put it to the test .......nothing.

Going back a few years I had blood tests and was told may have mild lupus, and was refered to aspecialist. By the time I was able to get in to see her, I had no sign of anything, and so that was discounted. I never followed through again.

So over the years have learnt to just put up with it.

I know Pineapple is good in arthritis.
In some cases, people follow the treatment a few years and later they don't need it.

My father was diagnosed nearly 30 years ago with a severe form of arthiritis. A man he became friendly with from seeing him at the hospital regularly was diagnosed the same day with the same form. This man was in a wheelchair within 5 years, my father still plays league badminton twice a week and teaches badminton once a week. He made sure he kept the joints active, wears a support to play badminton, exercises daily and uses a foot spa to help the circulation in his feet. He also takes 1000mg Glucosamine tablets (so do I - see below).

I had a severe knee problem when I was about 8 years old and was told that I would probably end up with arthiritis in it later in life. After the age of about 25, every now and then, my knee would act up but never for more than a few weeks at a time. The last attack of this was two years ago and and was the worst ever, the doctor suspected it was arthiritis.

I had tried reiki a few times, mainly from friends who had been trained and attuned in it. I felt that reiki was a load of claptrap and was just a new age "pyramid sell" that did not work - I never felt any difference from it. However, at this time, I came to know a Reiki Master who has very fixed opinions on Reiki - in particular the fact that it should not be done for free as so many people seem to. Apparently, as it's an exchange of energy, there should be some form of exchange from the person receiving it. I had a 30 minute session with him by the end of which my knee was fine and the hospital found nothing - this pain has never come back since then. I would recommend at least trying Reiki, I can't prove this session was the reason the pain went away but I do feel it's more than coincidence especially as I felt the difference during and immediately after the session.

As prescription drug options diminish, arthritis sufferers are scrambling for relief. Experts recommend these eat-right tips to ease the ache:

Vitamin C
A 10-year Boston University study of 149 people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) found that getting less than 150 mg of vitamin C per day tripled the rate of cartilage breakdown. High-C foods include sweet peppers, peaches, and strawberries.

Omega-3s
Several clinical trials found that eating 3 g of fish fats a day relieved the joint pain, swelling, and morning stiffness of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and reduced the need for drugs. Fish oil seems to cut the inflammation that causes RA symptoms.

Weight Loss
New Wake Forest University research found that reduced production of the hormone leptin--generated by fat tissue--may be the reason weight loss alleviates OA pain. In the 18-month study, 316 overweight and obese people with knee OA lost 3 to 6% of their body weight; falling leptin levels closely corresponded to diminishing pain and disability symptoms.

Glucosamine for Arthritis

The best remendy for is glucosamine sulphate. Glucosamine tablets and capsules are easily available with the local pharmacist. It has to be normally taken for a couple of weeks before you start seeing any results.

Many arthritis suffers take glucosamine in combination with chondroitin sulphate, rose hip extract or celadrin all of which are known to complement the effect of glucosamine.

You can check the following website for more information:

Hi. Have you heard of the book Curing Arthritis the Drug-Free Way by Margaret Hills? Might be worth a look particularly as you have an aversion to taking the anti-inflams. Hope some of the suggestions on here help. I'd also add my support to avoiding or really limiting coffee and wine. (Do you think back over what you'd been eating in the days around the attack? Good way to see if these are some of the culprits,)....and as for Glucosamine and Pure Cod Liver Oil I'd agree they can be fantastic if you find they work for you. Do hope so. My mom used to talk to us about the value of buying good brands of vitamins and minerals etc... and you know how these things go. That's right. Over the years she's proved to us that she was right! Be interesting to hear how you get on and sending a prayer for relief from your pain x

Hi,

I am a health practitioner and have helped many clients with Arthritis. One of the keys is to keep to Alkaline foods as much as possible avoiding red meat, dairy and processed/convenience foods. There is a great book called Alkalise or Die by Dr Theodore Baroody which offers plenty of info to help you achieve a more alkaline approach. Cider Vinegar is also excellent as well as Omega 3, Turmeric, Celery and Nettle Tea or herb tincture.

Hi I would love to tell you about one product I came across it is called Forever Freedom. This is an excellent and very safe product to give to humams and animals suffering from joint problems. Forever Freedom not only contains the recommended levels of glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM but also over 80% Aloe Vera Gel. The Aloe Vera will increase the absorption of the chondroprotective agents thus maximising their benefits.My friends husband used to come home from work and had go straight to bed because of pain. He did not see his children or wife after;two days of taking this product he strated to feel the benefits.Amazing he is a new man.

I May Have A Solution For You

Hello

I may have a solution for you. Although my story below is differnet to yours I think that this may help you.

My young son was diagnosed with JIA (juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) not so long ago. Annoyed and upset we were. We have since been looking for a way to ease his pain without medicine. Several weeks ago I found an excellent book, which has helped us with his problem, I just wish that we could have found it sooner. It is quite cheap to buy and should be worth at least three times the price.

I would strongly suggest that you take a look. The best part is we didn't have to wait days to get it; you could have this book within minutes. Click on or copy and paste the website address below into your browser to have a look. This is the best book that I have ever bought to do with Arthritis.
Best Regards

Hello! I know this post is quite old, and I haven't read all the responses, so someone might have already suggested this... but I've been reading about the medicinal properties of common weeds recently, and I've seen some amazing testimonies about the benefits of nettles for arthritis. They've got other healing benefits, so I've been juicing them with apple and carrot - fantastic!

Also, fasting has been known to dramatically reduce arthritis pain. How about a juice fast using nettles along with apple/carrot/anything else to make it taste yummy?#

Best to you!

I'm not sure how much information I'm allowed to post here, but there is a new treatment on the market called FlexMyJoints that I encourage anyone who experiences chronic joint pain to search for on the internet. I'm assuming I'm not allowed to post the direct link to the website. It's supposed to be a fresh approach to reducing pain.

fish oil remedy

I came across information which suggested that fish oil was extremely helpful for arthritis, especially for the osteo kind. Do consult a doctor to find out what dosage you should take and how regularly you should take fish oil or its supplements. I have even come across someone who professed great relief from gout after taking fish oil. By taking the correct dose, you will surely see the benefits in a few days. You can refer to for more information

Hi everyone,

Just to add to the mix of natural remedies try this: add few strands of Saffron ..rather than Turmeric (as mentioned above) as it is far more potent.

Saffron not only reduces the inflammation but also acts as a mild analgesic..so you may feel pain free and swellin free..provided you add this to your food dishes, even hot drinks...on a regular basis.

Don't mind the colour it turns your milk for eg..as the end result is far worth it !

Good health to all of you!

with warm wishes

Vathani

The key to dealing with arthritis is in understanding the loss of moisture in the tissues and joints. The result is now you have joints that are functioning with less cushioning and fluidity to move freely. In these terms, diet is usually the number one culprit. Artificial diets of processed food are what pull moisture away from the joints. Primary examples of this are foods that contain, salt, white sugar, bleach white flour, white rice, all kinds of fried foods, etc. Getting off the wheat centered diets is a good idea. You have to get the body more alkaline. You have to get away from the foods that block or congest the flow of blood and nutrients by clogging up the veins and arteries. Take in lesser dairy products like milk and get into more vegetable milks which would keep the blood flow going very well.:)

This is a very good way to control arthritis and it is surely long term. For short term relief you may need some supplements, but stay away from the knock it dead medications . They will detroy you.

Both the food industry and pharmaceutical industry are making big profits at the expense of our health. Health problem emerges from eating processed foods, artificial sweeteners, colouring, additives, fizzy drinks ect.

These food choices depletes our vitamin, mineral and amino acid intake. One missing nutrient causes an imbalance in the body’s ability to maintain good health and heal. Then when we fall ill we are prescribed the appropriate medications.

These money making industry's provides a vicious circle of Obesity, Heart disease, Hormonal imbalances, Cancers, Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, High blood pressure etc.

We have much more control over our health than we might think.
If you provide your body with the right nutrition and lifestyle changes the body will rejuvenate and heal itself naturally.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a disorder in which, for some unknown reason, the body's own immune system starts to attack body tissues. The attack is not only directed at the joint but to many other parts of the body. In rheumatoid arthritis, most damage occurs to the joint lining and cartilage which eventually results in erosion of two opposing bones. Rheumatoid arthritis affects joints in the fingers, wrists, knees and elbows. The disease is symmetrical and can lead to severe deformity in a few years if not treated. [url]Rheumatoid arthritis[/url] occurs mostly in people aged 20 and above. In children, the disorder can present with a skin rash, fever, pain, disability, and limitations in daily activities. No one knows why rheumatoid arthritis occurs and all treatments are focused on easing the symptoms. With earlier diagnosis and aggressive treatment, many individuals can lead a decent quality of life. The drugs to treat rheumatoid arthritis range from corticosteroids to monoclonal antibodies given intravenously. The latest drugs like Remicade can significantly improve quality of life in the short term. In rare cases, surgery may be required to replace joints but there is no cure for the illness.Many of the forms of arthritis, because they are rheumatic diseases, can cause symptoms affecting various organs of the body that do not directly involve the joints. Therefore, symptoms in some patients with certain forms of arthritis can also include fever, gland swelling, weight loss, fatigue, feeling unwell, and even symptoms from abnormalities of organs such as the lungs, heart, or kidneys.

reiki help

please use Reiki. first becoming attuned yourself through a reiki master ,after you have experienced the benefits of Reiki for your arthritis, would then allow you to self heal and also to heal others. A Reiki attunement is a wonderful experience, each person will experience it differently, some will feel filled with light, others will feel the energy flowing throught them, whatever, the feeling, another healer has been created and they will take this healing energy with them for the rest of their life.

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. After taking convention medic ion for one year, I notice that the convention medicine decreases pain, but not really cure arthritis, also the medicine hurts my stomach. I begin to do home remedy for myself, eating fresh food like broccoli and spinach every day , no processed food and fried food to improve my immune system function. Also I study Chinese herbs and search them online . I find that Vine Essence Capsules is superior herbal formula for Rheumatoid Arthritis. After using Vine Essence Capsules one month, I have no more swallow and pain on my hands. The pain on my ankle is much less. Vine Essence does not hurt my stomach and I feel my energy level is raised after taking it. Hope in a few months more, I will arthritis free. I highly recommend people with Rheumatoid Arthritis use Vine Essence capsule. I bought it online at safeherbsguide.com.
