Arthritis is a problem associated with joints and is accompanied by joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and inability to perform any movement. The severity of the arthritis pain may increase over time and in some cases can affect other organs like eyes, lung, and liver as well.
The joint pain associated with arthritis is termed as arthralgia and may include single or multiple joints. For pain in only one joint we call it monoarthritis while when more than four joints are involved, it is known as polyarthritis
This disease is more commonly noticed in elderly people but can also occur in children and young adults.
- Previous injury
- Continued physical labor
- Autoimmune attack
There are around 100 known types of arthritis known ranging from the ones that are caused due to cartilage wear and tear to the ones that are caused due to autoimmunity.
Here we are discussing the two most common forms of arthritis Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects the cartilages, ligaments and the linings around the joints.
Cartilage is a protein that acts as a protective layer around the bones and joints. It can be compared to a cushiony surface that absorbs any shocks and aids in a smooth and flexible movement. When this layer gets weared and teared, it may cause joints to rub against each other causing pain, swelling and an inability in the smooth movement.
Using homeopathy for arthritis in the early stages itself one can rest free of the above dreadful concerns.
Unlike osteoarthritis which is caused due to wear and tear of joints this kind of arthritis is caused due to an autoimmune attack. Here the body’s own immune system starts attacking its tissues and in some cases affects other organs as well.
There is a soft tissue around joints known as synovium which provides a lubricant effect on the joints and nourishes the cartilage.
The autoimmune attack affects this tissue causing bone erosion and joint deformity.
The lifestyle changes you can make to combat the deleterious effects of arthritis are:
- Maintain a healthy body weight. If you are planning to reduce weight make sure to supplant your efforts by eating fresh fruits, vegetable, and herbs that are full of antioxidants
- Remain physically active by following a daily exercise regimen while taking rest in between so as to prevent exhaustion
- Avoid repetitive movements
- Avoid processed foods, dairy products and nightshade vegetables such as tomatoes
- Complement your diet with inflammation reducing foods such as fish nuts and seeds
- Improve sleep hygiene as a poor sleep contributes to arthritis pain
- Use physical therapies such as warm water pool that supports body weight
- Avoid high purine foods such as seafood and meats
How to treat arthritis?
There are multitude of treatments available but the proven and tested, safest, non-addictive serving as a natural help is homeopathy. The treatment is personalized and the prescription is unique for each patient even though they may suffer from the exact same disease.
Homeopathy for arthritis
The changes mentioned above are very effective to treat arthritis naturally but sometimes when the symptoms exceed par their acceptable levels medical intervention becomes necessary.
Homeopathy for arthritis treatment is very effective natural treatment in providing relief not only for the acute stages but for the chronic stages as well.
But it is recommended to consult a well trained homeopathic practitioner during the acute stages itself.
Now, if you have developed arthritis due to family history, this means your symptoms , mental and emotional balance, joint pain ,etc will be very different from the other patients with arthritis.
Though the outer manifestation of disease may lead you into believing that a common remedy based on this disease label would work.
Yes, for hiding just the outer symptoms this can work very well.
But soon you will start seeing recurring patterns where you have to completely depend on conventional medicines. This in time becomes a never ending loop and do more harm than good to your body.
So, if you want to treat your arthritis from its very root cause , homeopathy is the best alternative treatment for arthritis.
Since healing takes place by stimulating your own vital force, you are required to have patience.
