Herbs for Arthritis, Inflammation and Joint Pain

by WriterArtist

Healing Arthritis goes a long way from changing lifestyle habits, stress and herbs show promise in treating this painful ailment. Certain herbs are known to reduce inflammation.

Herbs for arthritis were known to us from ancient times. Whether it is due to old age or immune system disorder, herbs can be remarkably effective in treating joint pains. Joint pains or inflammations would also suddenly appear as a reaction to certain food and medicines.

This allergic reaction can be temporary, however in many cases Auto-Immune System Disorder tends to be permanent. Many therapies show promise, but none can remove it from the roots. Allopathy has been able to treat chronic diseases but has failed to remove it from the roots.

Anti-Inflammatory Plants for Pain Treatment


There are at least 18 or more herbs that are used to treat inflammation viz devil’s claw, turmeric, basil, bay laurel and so on. In addition to herbs for inflammation treatment, certain spices like black pepper, garlic, cloves, saffron, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne are immensely popular and are considered anti-inflammatory natural spices to reduce pain.

The yellow turmeric root contains curcumin, an active chemical that blocks inflammatory cytokines. It is widely used in Indian curries. Raw garlic contains antioxidants and allicin. Allicin is briefly present after it is crushed. Raw garlic is antibacterial and antifungal. Many sulphur compounds present in garlic give rise to its pungent taste and smell.

How to take Herbs

Potions of Herbs



A word of caution though, if you are taking strong allopathic drugs, there can be ‘herbs with drugs’ reactions. Or if you are mixing many herbs, there can be ‘herbs with herbs’ reactions. Unless one is experienced, one should not mix two streams of medicine. General practitioners and Doctors can seldom advise, they are new to these territories.


I take certain herbs and spices but not with my usual prescribed medicines. I take them in known form – raw and organic. For instance, I take basil leaves with morning ‘khada’ (Indian concoction to boost immunity) and garlic (raw cloves) after my breakfast which has done wonders to my arthritis and joint pains. I take raw garlic, mesh it and gulp it with water.  I grow my own garlic and basil herbs. 


I would suggest starting small with no mixing and in small potions. A potion you make yourself at home which is not bought from any store. The ingredients of this potion are not unknown because you made it at home.
