Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition. But heating pads, warm showers, paraffin baths, and a capsaicin ointment can ease pain. Adopt a Mediterranean diet and incorporate anti-inflammatory fish oil, borage or primrose oil, ginger, green tea, and turmeric into your daily diet. Tai chi and yoga can also help.
Borax, a popular remedy in traditional and herbal medicine, is used to treat sores, swelling, menstrual problems, and UTIs. Reports of its benefits for inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis sound promising. But with possible risks to kidney function and restrictions on use during pregnancy, it may not be the remedy it’s cracked up to be for everyone.
Fish oil's benefits are due to its omega-3 fats that lower triglycerides and the bad cholesterol, reduce anxiety and prevent Alzheimer's, and lower cancer risk of the breast, colon, and prostate. They can also replace the anti-inflammatory drugs used to treat arthritis. If you're diabetic or on blood-thinners, avoid fish oil. If you are not, take it with antioxidants in a dose not more than 3 g a day unless so advised by your doctor.
Certain foods can worsen the rheumatoid arthritis inflammation that leads to joint pain. So here is a rogue’s gallery of the worst offenders in the pantry!
