7 Natural Treatments for Osteoarthritis

7 Natural Treatments for OsteoarthritisAs you age, your body cannot create new bone as quickly as the old bone is lost, which may cause osteoporosis to set in. Osteoarthritis is the gradual deterioration of your joint tissue, as a result of joint bones rubbing against each other. Osteoarthritis weakens your bones, causing them to become more brittle, therefore they are more susceptible to fractures. Osteoarthritis is also painful and it can make every day activities almost impossible. Fortunately there are natural remedies that can make living with osteoarthritis significantly more bearable.

Here are 7 natural treatments for osteoarthritis:

1.      Capsaicin

Capsaicin is naturally derived from cayenne and chili peppers, and found in many osteoarthritis creams, gels, and ointments. It stimulates the release of a compound believed to reduce pain and inflammation. If you suffer from osteoarthritis, sprinkle a little cayenne or chili pepper on your meals. You’ll be giving the food flavour and your bones pain relief.

2.      Ginger

Ginger has numerous healing powers and is believed to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and alleviate joint pain in people with osteoarthritis. It has also been effectively used to help treat arthritis, diarrhea, colic, headaches, heart conditions, and even the common cold.

3.      Devil’s Claw

Devil’s claw has been used for centuries to relieve joint pain, back pain, and headaches. It has anti-inflammatory properties that naturally reduce swelling and improve circulation, which makes it a perfect nature treatment for osteoarthritis.

4.      Vitamin C

Vitamin C is necessary for your body to produce collagen, which is an essential part of normal cartilage. Cartilage is destroyed by osteoarthritis, which puts additional pressure on bones and joints. Eating foods rich in vitamin C or taking a vitamin C supplement is a highly effective natural treatment for osteoarthritis.

5.      Glucosamine Sulfate

Glucosamine is necessary for the health of our spinal discs, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. As we get older, the natural level of glucosamine in our body declines. That is why so many studies have shown that taking glucosamine sulfate for osteoarthritis will help to reduce inflammation and slowly reverse joint damage.

6.      Hot and Cold Hydrotherapy

Alternating hold and cold hydrotherapy can help to reduce inflammation and swelling, while eliminating toxins from your body. The hot application expands blood vessels and fills them with blood. The cold application constricts the blood vessels, directing the blood to flow more freely throughout your body. This will improve circulation and the quality of your blood.

7.      Regular Exercise

Exercising regularly plays a crucial role in the prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis. Exercise helps to reduce pain, prevent stiffness, and slow down joint deterioration. It also helps keep joints healthy by strengthening, supporting, and protecting muscles, tendons, ligaments and increasing the flexibility of joints and range of motion. Make sure to respect your body’s limitations and only perform exercises that are not painful. Exercise helps to keep joints healthy by encouraging the flow of synovial fluid into and out of the cartilage, and strengthens the supporting, protecting structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments) and increases the range of motion, shock absorption, and flexibility of joints.
