At-home arthritis relief
Arthritis is a group of painful joint inflammation conditions that cause symptoms such as swelling, stiffness and grinding joints. Managing and treating the symptoms of arthritis at home is possible, according to the following doctor-approved remedies.
Put the fire of inflammation out with omega-3 supplements
“Research studies have shown that high-dose omega oils supplements containing EPA, DHA and GLA can help with arthritis pain, specifically by reducing inflammatory chemicals in the body.” — Dr Susan Blum, founder and director of Blum Center for Health and author of two books on arthritis.
Grill up a grass-fed steak
“Grass-fed or pastured meat has been shown in research studies to be significantly higher in omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce inflammation. In addition, grass-fed beef is high in creatine, which can increase muscle mass in people with rheumatoid arthritis, helping to increase mobility.” — Dr Ed Levitan
