There is a new and natural way to alleviate pain and discomfort that is popping up in natural stores and this is the magnet. These magnets have been in the form of bracelets and other pieces of jewelry and they have some ability to alleviate pain, at least for individuals with osteoarthritis. There is not much research on these magnets for individuals who have rheumatoid arthritis and while there is not much research as to why they alleviate pain, they may have some benefit for rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. Consider discussing using magnetic bracelets with your doctor to see if you are a candidate for this alternative and natural therapy.
Herbs have great compounds in them that are often overlooked during the cooking process. Many herbs and spices are loaded with healthy compounds that improve health, yet it does not make much news. Turmeric is a commonly used spice used in household recipes that has certain anti-arthritis capabilities. These capabilities involve reducing inflammation in the body and treatments using turmeric tend to involve reducing inflammation in the joints. This is critical for individuals with rheumatoid arthritis and by simply having some naturally grown herbs regularly can really make a difference in treating your pain. Consider eating more dishes that use turmeric and consider making smoothies that contain some turmeric, if desired.
