Relief for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a painful debilitating disease where the body’s own immune system attacks joints lining and cartilage in the body. The most common areas are the elbows, wrists, knees, and fingers. Left unchecked this disease can cause deformation of these joints in just a few years.

Several drugs like corticosteroids and monoclonal antibodies are frequently used to help ease the symptoms. These drugs have been known to cause side effects. Mononine a brand name of monoclonal is made from human blood plasma and may contain infectious agents. (Source

Have you tried Alternative Therapies for pain?

Alternative Therapies

While not ruling out prescribed medications there are alternative therapies that can be considered. One possibility is a natural topical nerve block like "Pain Relief Max" from Dr. Swaim. This anti-Inflammatory cream interferes with pain signal transmission and are very useful in providing relief.

Likewise warm soaks with dead sea salts can be very effective in easing pain. Unprocessed, authentic dead sea salts provide maximum therapeutic effects with proven benefits for those who suffer from Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and many other disorders.

These salts differ from the salt found in many local natural health stores. Often you find a pure white salt that has been processed to remove much of the helpful minerals. Higher quality salts are an off white color from the minerals contained in the salt. You will often also find brown specks in natural dead sea salt which are the minerals or essential oils within the salt.

Other Relief

Rheumatoid Arthritis is not a disease that is usually “cured”. Treatment is a lifelong process that includes pain relief, anti-inflammation treatments and physical therapy.

Often over the counter drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen can help with the inflammation and provide some relief. Long term use of these drugs can cause stomach problems like ulcers and bleeding.

Using Pain Relief Creams

If you have pain in your limbs the most effective way to counter the pain is by applying pain relief cream over both the area where you feel the pain and the joint closest to the pain. Often the pain starts in the joint and works out.

Pain relief cream works by interfering with the nerves ability to transmit a message to the brain. Creams need to be messaged into the affected area until no more cream is visible on the skin. This helps the cream work its way into the tissue and down to the nerves transmitting the pain signal to the brain.

Ah my handsome face, usually it's my beautiful blond hair that brings in the groupies. :)

I'm slowly working my way through most of the content management sites. Each seems to have it's own benefits. Wizzley seems to get quite a bit of instant traffic to the new page.

Have you tried acupuncture? I've heard it also works.
I recognize your handsome face from the Q site. Seems we travel in some of the same circles.

Welcome! I'm so thankful that I don't suffer from arthritis, but will keep these ideas tucked away in case I can offer help to someone else.
