The practice of using herbs and spices to combat illness has been around for centuries, however, there are some specific natural herbs and spices that have been shown to work particularly well in people with RA.
Ginger has been widely accepted as having great healing properties. It is often used to restore balance to the whole person, and this includes alleviating pain from the body. The main ingredient in ginger is called gingerol. Studies on animals have found that the gingerol in ginger may help prevent and heal inflammation and ease pain in the body.
Turmeric is actually a spice known for its cooling properties, which makes it excellent for patients with RA. Animal studies have concluded that this spice contains oils that when consumed have an anti-arthritis effect. It also contains natural antibiotic and anticancer properties.
Fresh garlic is widely known for its anti -inflammatory properties. It is ideal for those suffering from the pain of RA because it actually inhibits the production of cytokines. Cytokines are pro-inflammatory substances produced in the body. It is imperative that the garlic be fresh. Heating or roasting garlic has been shown to greatly reduce its anti-inflammatory effectiveness.
Green Tea, cinnamon, and black pepper, have all been shown to greatly reduce inflammation and pain in the body.
RA is a very difficult condition to live with, and, as of yet, there is no cure, only treatments. There have been great advances in modern medicine that continue to aid in the fight against RA and other autoimmune diseases that affect millions of people worldwide. However, there is a wealth of information and evidence showing that non-medicinal techniques have also been very effective at reducing the symptoms and progression of conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis.
You should consider using Real Time Pain Relief. It is a topical pain reliever that provides relief in minutes. Unlike some pain relievers that only contain a few ingredients known to relieve pain, Real Time Pain Relief contains 19 ingredients including Menthol, Emu Oil, Aloe Vera, Arnica, Capsicum, and Glucosamine. Along with its ability to ease pain, Emu Oil is a transdermal carrier which simply means that it matches the skin’s cell structure so closely that the natural protective barriers of the skin allow Emu Oil to penetrate through all layers of the skin down to the site of the pain and carry with it all the other beneficial ingredients! It is even free from Parabens and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate! Real Time Pain Relief is committed to maintaining low levels of menthol because the FDA warns that topical pain relievers containing more than 3% menthol can cause skin burns. If you apply Real Time Pain Relief, you will receive the benefits associated with menthol, which are relief from muscle aches, pain, and cramps, without the discomfort that accompanies lotions with high concentrations of Menthol.
