TREATMENT


CONSIDERATIONS

  • If the blood is too acidic, this may cause the cartilage in the joints to dissolve. The joints lose their normal smooth sliding motion, the bones rub together, and the joints become inflamed. This causes pain.


  • MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Acidosis

    MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Alkalosis

  • Researchers have identified a possible genetic component of osteoarthritis. They found that in some individuals, there is a defect in the gene that instructs cartilage cells to manufacture collagen, an important protein in connective tissue. As a result, the collagen in these individuals' joints is more prone to wear down, depriving the bones of their protective cushion.


  • In one study, people with rheumatoid arthritis were found to have lower blood levels of folic acid, protein, and zinc than healthy persons. The researchers concluded that drugs prescribed for arthritis had brought about biochemical changes in the subjects' bodies, increasing their need for certain nutrients.


  • Eating fish fights inflammation. For joint inflammation, eat certain fish varieties, such as mackerel, salmon, sardines and herring, regularly. The flesh of these fish contains omega-3 essential fatty acids. These highly unsaturated substances are vital to the body's cells; they can hinder the development of arthritis because they are used to make prostaglandins, hormone-like chemicals that contribute to the regulation of inflammatory responses.

    Eating deep-sea fish, which are rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA), was found to help relieve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Another researcher conducted a study in which 20 people with rheumatoid arthritis were given daily doses of 15 capsules of MaxEPA, a fish oil concentrate, and 20 were given a placebo. After 14 weeks, the groups were switched. The people taking the fish oil reported only about half as many tender joints as the placebo group. The fish oil also slowed the onset of fatigue.


  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids found in fish oil may alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis by suppressing the immune system reaction that causes joint inflammation. Numerous studies over the past 10 years have shown that people with rheumatoid arthritis have few tender and swollen joints and less morning stiffness after several months of taking large doses of fish oil supplements (2.5 to 5 grams a day) with meals. A small number of people have even been able to reduce or discontinue use of anti-inflammatory drugs.

    Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid, may ease symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis by suppressing the production of prostaglandins that trigger inflammation. Evening primrose oil and borage seed oil contain GLA.
    • Salmon Oil Capsule, 2000 mg, 120 EPA / 80 DHA, NOW Foods, 250 Softgels

    • NOW Food's Salmon Oil is a nutritional supplement that supplies Omega-3 fatty acids, Consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. The FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive. Clinical studies have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids can support healthy circulatory systems. Supportive, but not conclusive, research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Suggested Usage: As a dietary supplement, take 2 softgels 2 to 3 times daily with meals. The salmon oil concentrate used in this softgel is manufactured in Norway under strict quality control standards. It is screened for the absence of potentially harmful levels of contaminants (i.e. mercury, heavy metals, PCB's dioxins, and other contaminants).

  • Anti-inflammatory Diet: You should eat yogurt with live cultures; fresh pineapple for its anti-inflammatory enzyme, bromelain; and legumes, deep sea fish and flaxseed and borage oils for anti-inflammatory essential fatty acids. Drink plenty of water, and focus on fresh fruits, vegetables and fiber-rich whole grains. However, white potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant tend to be allergy triggers and may cause joint pain. Also avoid consuming refined sugars, fats and white flours - they increase undesirable bacteria levels and cause constipation, which further concentrates toxins.


  • Intestinal health prevents inflammation. Imbalances in intestinal flora and increased permeability of intestinal walls - a condition known as "leaky gut" - may be implicated in joint and muscle inflammation. This occurs when toxins produced by undesirable bacteria are absorbed through the more permeable walls into the bloodstream. The toxins trigger the body to produce antibodies, and both of these lead to inflammation. A health diet can prevent growth of abnormal bacteria. Rule out food allergies. They also cause production of antibodies and often affect muscles and joints.


  • MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Allergies

    yoga exercise and stretching


  • Gentle exercise promotes mobility. Strenuous exercise may be impossible or far too painful and can increase inflammation. Gentle stretching helps maintain or increase range of motion. Be sure you are not in pain when you stretch; this will only make matters worse. Try a hot shower or heating pad to warm up your muscles beforehand. Yoga and Tai Chi are good exercise options for loosening stiff joints and tight muscles.


  • Most chiropractors and osteopaths advise women to avoid high-heeled shoes because they place a 30 percent greater compressive pressure on the knees than flat or low-heeled shoes, which may eventually lead to arthritis of the knees. The higher the heel, the greater the force.


  • Soothing heat promotes circulation and stimulates elimination of waste products that may contribute to inflammation. Use warm compresses, a heating pad or a hot-water bottle regularly to ease aches. A hot bath or shower early in the day helps to loosen typically stiff morning muscles.


  • Cold applications to relieve pain. When pain is most severe, apply cold rather than heat to the affected joints for the strongest anti-inflammatory effects. Use ice cubes in a towel, a compress soaked in ice-cold water or a commercial refreezable gel pack.


  • Antioxidant nutrients, including vitamin E, can reduce inflammation in connective tissues, joints and muscles. Antioxidants intercept "free radicals," which are unstable molecules that readily bind to, and alter or destroy, body cells; the body attacks the altered cells in an attempt to clean up the broken-down tissue, making the inflammation worse. To prevent this, choose an antioxidant-rich diet containing wheat germ, dark green leafy vegetables and sunflower and walnut oils as good choices.


  • Arthritis pain and inflammation may respond to treatment with honeybee venom. The venom contains a powerful anti-inflammatory substance and also acts as an immune system stimulant. It is administered by injection, either with a hypodermic needle or by the bees themselves. It is believed to be effective for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, although the latter generally takes longer to respond. For more information:

  • Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a byproduct of wood processing, is a liquid that can be applied topically to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and promote healing. Note: Only DMSO from a health food store should be used for the treatment of arthritis. Commercial-grade DMSO such as that found in hardware stores is not suitable for healing purposes. The use of DMSO may result in a garlicky body odor. This is temporary, and is not a cause for concern.

  • Injections of a protein called anti-TGF-B banishes painful joint swelling in 75 percent of subjects in a research study. This protein destroys TGF-B, a chemical produced by the body in response to infection that causes inflammation and triggers swelling in the hands and feet.


  • Women who breast-feed are less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than women who don't. Dr. Elizabeth Wood Karlson of Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston used data from the Nurse's Health Study to explore the contribution of hormonal factors on subsequent development of arthritis. Women who breast-fed for at least 24 months had a 50 percent risk reduction.


  • Silicone gel breast implants and other silicone prosthetics may cause arthritis-like symptoms, such as swelling of joints, contractures, fever, chronic fatigue, and pain. Silicone has also been known to trigger such severe autoimmune diseases as scleroderma and lupus. A study at the University of California in Davis, 16 of 46 women having breast implants had antibodies that attacked collagen, whereas, the group of women without implants, only 4 had the antibodies. Some women have seen arthritic symptoms disappear after having the implants removed, but this is not true in all cases.


  • Chlamydia, the organism responsible for many cases of urethritis, has been linked to a form of arthritis that afflicts young women. In nearly half of the women with unexplained arthritis tested in one study, chlamydia was found in the joints. 75 percent had elevated levels of antibodies to chlamydia in their blood.

    DIET, HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS & NUTRIENTS

  • Eat more sulfur-containing foods, such as asparagus, eggs, garlic, and onions. Sulfur is needed for the repair and rebuilding of bone, cartilage, and connective tissue, and aids in the absorption of calcium. Other good foods include green leafy vegetables, which supply vitamin K; fresh vegetables; non-acidic fresh fruits; whole grains; oatmeal; brown rice; and fish, soybean products, and avocados. Be sure to include these foods in your diet. Also, tart red cherries can relieve pain and inflammation. Eat about 20 cherries each day. If you can't find fresh cherries, the frozen variety is fine.


  • Consume foods containing the amino acid histidine, including rice, wheat, and rye. Histidine is good for removing excess metals from the body. Many people with arthritis have high levels of copper and iron in their bodies.


  • Eat fresh pineapple frequently. Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple, is excellent for reducing inflammation. To be effective, the pineapple must be fresh, as freezing and canning destroy enzymes.


  • Eat some form of fiber, such as ground flaxseed, oat bran, or rice bran, daily. Do not take fiber supplements at the same time as your other nutritional supplements.


  • Reduce the amount of fat in your diet. Do not consume milk, dairy products, or red meat. Also avoid caffeine, citrus fruits, paprika, salt, tobacco, and everything that contains sugar.


  • Avoid nightshade vegetables (peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, white potatoes). These foods contain a substance called solanine, to which some people, particularly those suffering from arthritis, are highly sensitive. Solanine interferes with enzymes in the muscles, and may cause pain and discomfort.


  • Cosamin DS from Nutramax Laboratories is a formula that may help with joints and ligaments. It may not be available through a health food store, so it may have to be ordered directly from the manufacturer.

  • Boron is important as a trace mineral. It can be found naturally in non-citrus fruits such as plums, red grapes, apples, pears, and avocados, as well as in legumes and nuts. It can also be found in red wine and coffee. Dried fruits contain a much higher amount of boron than do fresh fruits. For instance fresh plums contain 0.45 mg/100 grams, but the same weight in dried prunes (about a dozen) contains 2.15 mg of boron. The body's boron requirements may be as high as 9 to 12 mg per day although most people naturally consume only about 1 to 2 mg in the diet.


  • If you are overweight, lose the excess pounds. Being overweight can cause and aggravate osteoarthritis.


  • Get regular moderate exercise. Exercise is essential for reducing pain and retarding joint deterioration. Regular activity that does not put stress on affected joints, but that strengthens surrounding bones, muscles, and ligaments, is valuable for many types of arthritis. Bicycle riding, walking, and water exercise are good choices. Avoid weight-bearing or impact exercises.


  • Spend time outdoors for fresh air and sunshine. Exposure to the sun prompts the synthesis of vitamin D, which is needed for proper bone formation.


  • Consider having a hair analysis to determine the levels of toxic metals in your body. Lead levels have been found to be higher than normal in some arthritis sufferers.


  • Check for possible food allergies. Many sufferers of neck and shoulder pain have found relief when they eliminate certain foods.


  • Take a free-form amino acid complex regularly to help tissue repair.


  • In the morning, take a hot shower or a bath to help relieve morning stiffness.


  • Hot tubs and baths may provide relief. Raw lemon rubs and hot castor oil packs are also extremely beneficial. To make a hot castor oil pack, place castor oil in a pan and heat, but do not boil it. Dip a piece of cheesecloth or other white cotton material into the oil until the cloth is saturated. Apply the cloth to the affected area and cover it with a piece of plastic that is larger in size than the cotton cloth. Place a heating pad over the plastic and use it to keep the pack warm. Keep the pack in place for 1/2 to 2 hours, as needed.


  • For relief of pain, try using cold gel packs. These retain cold for long periods of time when frozen. Place them on inflamed joints. Alternate with applications of heat.


  • Do not take iron supplements, or a multivitamin containing iron. Iron is suspected of being involved in pain, swelling, and joint destruction. Consume iron in foods instead. Good sources of iron in foods include blackstrap molasses, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, fish, lima beans, and peas.


  • If you use ibuprofen or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), avoid sodium (salt), which causes water retention. Spread doses of these medications out through the day, take them only after eating, and take an antacid an hour after taking the drug. Ask your health care provider about a protective agent to take along with the NSAID, especially if you are over 65 or have had previous gastrointestinal bleeding.

    HELPFUL MEDICINAL HERBS

  • Kombucha tea, which contains many vital nutrients as well as compounds that are essential components of connective tissue, has been reported to increase energy, relieve pain, and improve mobility in people with arthritis.


  • Nutrition Therapy: Kombucha Tea


  • Alfalfa contains all the minerals essential for bone formation, and may be helpful for arthritis. It can be taken in capsules, or in whole, natural form.


  • Kelp also contains essential minerals and is good for thyroid function.


  • Cat's claw is helpful for relieving arthritis pain. Feverfew and ginger also are good for pain and soreness. Caution: Do not use cat's claw or feverfew during pregnancy.


  • Boswellia, an Ayurvedic herb, is important for reducing inflammation. This is made from frankincense (Boswellia serrata). It also helps to restore blood vessels around inflamed connective tissue. Choose a product standardized to contain 150 mg of boswellic acids per tablet or capsule. Boswellia can also be used topically, in cream form, to relieve pain. Boswellin Cream from Nature's Herbs is a good source.

  • The boswellic acids, a group of acids associated with Boswellia serrata resin, work to inhibit an enzyme called 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), which is instrumental in synthesis of leukotrienes. The herbal preparation 5-Loxin contains AKBA, the most potent of the boswellic acids. It is a potent anti-inflammatory agent used successfully in the treatment of arthritis pain.

  • Ginger is a powerful antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory effects. The active component is gingerol. Ginger inhibits pain-producing prostaglandins.


  • The hot peppers known as cayenne (capsicum) contain a compound called capsaicin that relieves pain, apparently by inhibiting the release of substance P, a neurotransmitter responsible for communicating pain sensations. Capsaicin can be absorbed through the skin; mix cayenne powder with enough wintergreen oil to make a paste and apply it to painful joints, or use cayenne peppers in a poultice. This may cause a stinging sensation at first, but with repeated use, pain should diminish markedly. Cayenne can also be taken in capsule form.

  • Du Huo Jisheng Wan is an herbal Chinese patent medicine that has proven to be beneficial for arthritis sufferers.


  • Joint Care from Himalaya Herbal Healthcare is an Ayurvedic herbal combination formula designed to support joint health.

  • Nettle leaf is used in Germany for its anti-inflammatory properties. Nettle leaf extract inhibits TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta, which are pro-inflammatory signaling molecules. TNF is prominent in triggering inflammation and IL is involved in cartilage and bone destruction. The prescription drug etanercept (Enbrel), prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis, acts by suppressing the TNF-alpha.


  • Nexrutine is an herbal extract of the philodendron tree (Phellodendron amurense). This tree has been a resource in traditional Asian medicine for more than 1,500 years. Developed by Next Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Nexrutine is an anti-inflammatory used for natural pain management. It is uniquely suited for the treatment of arthritis pain due to its operational mechanisms. The COX-2 enzyme is inhibited, thus blocking one of the main pain pathways at the source. Additionally, its use does not cause blood platelets to stick together, thus reducing the cardiovascular risk associated with popular COX-2 inhibitors. No stomach problems were observed at trials. The usual dosage is 250 to 500 mg 3 times daily. Caution: Do not use Nexrutine while pregnant or lactating. It is not intended for use by children.

  • Noni, Known as "the sacred plant" to Polynesian people in the South Pacific, has been used for more than 2,000 years for pain, arthritis, and other health problems.

  • Olive Leaf Extract is good for infectious arthritis. Used for thousands of years by people living in the Mediterranean, it is said to be nature's safe and effective antibiotic. Natural compounds such as oleuropein in the leaf act as powerful germ killers capable of destroying microbes that can cause arthritis. There are reportedly no adverse side effects.

  • Phytodolor from either PhytoPharmica or Enzymatic Therapy is a patented blend of ash bark, aspen bark, and goldenrod. It has been used in Germany for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis for more than 30 years. Research has found it to be safe and easy on the stomach. Caution: Do not use this formula if you are sensitive to salicylates.


  • Turmeric contains curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. It is good for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. The recommended dose is 600 mg daily.

  • Willow bark is also good for pain and inflammation.

  • Borage seed oil in a dosage of 1,800 mg per day has been effective in pain control.

  • MEDICINAL HERBAL TEAS FOR LEAKY GUT:

  • Teas for Leaky Gut: Teas containing licorice, slippery elm, ginger and chamomile reduce permeability to toxins. A decreased toxin buildup relieves, and may help avert, joint and muscle inflammation.


  • MEDICINAL HERBAL TEAS FOR TISSUE DAMAGE:

  • Teas for tissue damage: Dandelion, nettles, oat straw and horsetail all are rich in the minerals needed to repair cartilage and tissue damage caused by inflammation. These herbs are also diuretic, so they encourage toxin excretion. Pour 1 cup of cold water over 1 tablespoon of an herb or combination of herbs. Simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Steep for 20 minutes and strain. Drink 1 cup 2-3 times a day, for 1 month. Dandelion and other bitter herbs, such as Oregon grape and burdock, also promote bile flow, improving the digestion of fats.
