7 Natural Remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis

By    |   Friday, 13 May 2016 02:18 PM

Natural remedies might not take the place of medication for the pain and stiffness of rheumatoid arthritis, but they could reduce symptoms and possibly lower the dosage or frequency of medicine the patient needs.

Here are seven natural remedies for rheumatoid arthritis:

1. Fish Oil — Fish oil supplements have been shown in research to relieve tender joints and morning stiffness, according to the Johns Hopkins Arthritis Center. Fish oil capsules often contain omega-3 fatty acids, which could thin the blood in high concentrations, Today noted. Patients can consult their doctor for the adequate dosage. Omega-3s are also found in salmon, tuna, and sardines to include in a diet.

2. Probiotics — Probiotics help balance the healthy and harmful bacteria in the body. Harmful bacteria can worsen symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis by triggering inflammation, according to Today. Probiotics rid the bad bacteria for a reduction of symptoms. Probiotics can be found in supplements and in foods such as yogurt and sauerkraut.

3. Exercise — Natural remedies for rheumatoid arthritis include stress management techniques, including tai chi, WebMD reported. The low-impact martial art improves flexibility and strength through gentle exercises that are easy on the joints.

4. Acupuncture — Acupuncture stimulates energy flow to correct any imbalances. Research suggests it may help reduce pain, including back pain.

5. Biofeedback — Biofeedback helps to manage stress by naturally controlling heart rate and blood pressure. It has been used for rheumatoid arthritis, but WebMD said there is not enough research to show it reduces pain for the disorder.

6. Heat and Cold — Heat and cold treatments may help to reduce joint pain and inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis. Heat relaxes the muscles and improves blood flow. Cold compresses for about 15 minutes at a time with 30-minute breaks help ease rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.

7. Diet — An anti-inflammatory diet features whole grains, fruits, vegetables, fish, beans, olive oil and herbs, Today noted. The diet avoids processed foods and fats that cause inflammation while including foods that act as natural remedies for rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. David Leopold of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine in La Jolla, California, said, according to Today. The low-fat diet avoids inflammation in the body from too many fat cells.
