According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the U.S., with over 50 million adults diagnosed. Nearly one-quarter of those individuals experiences pain that interferes with daily life.
While science is unsure what causes arthritis, a few contributing factors include an injury, autoimmune diseases, repetitive movements, microorganisms, infections, obesity, genetic predisposition, and complications from other diseases.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis among Americans, affecting an estimated 33 million adults. It wears away at the protective cartilage between bones and joints, eventually causing them to make bone-on-bone contact. This can deform bones, decrease the range of motion, and cause severe pain. Symptoms can impact virtually every joint in the body and often cause swelling or fluid retention, redness near the affected joint, or stiffness.
Many arthritis sufferers turn to traditional medicine for prescriptions to manage pain and to slow the progression of the disease, however, pills can lead to dependency or hazardous side effects, and also fail to address the root cause of the disease. It’s a bandaid rather than a long-term solution.
Those who seek arthritis relief outside of mainstream medicine have a number of natural arthritis treatments available, ranging from lifestyle modifications, acupuncture, supplements, essential oils, anti-inflammatory diets, and even a unique self-healing method that is safe and can bring about lasting results.
We’ve compiled a few alternative arthritis treatments that can help you ease symptoms and improve mobility so you can lead an active life without arthritic pain getting in the way.
By maintaining a healthy weight – or shedding extra pounds – you’re putting less pressure on already-strained joints and can improve arthritis pain. Excess fat means your body is producing more inflammatory chemicals that can worsen symptoms or cause a flare-up. Less weight equates to less pain.
An article from the September 2013 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association states that adults with osteoarthritis who followed a diet and exercise regime during an 18-month study reported significant improvement in pain and function. The research study also suggests that weight loss played a key role in reducing mechanical pressure on knee joints and improved overall joint function. Additionally, the article advised arthritis patients to set reasonable weight loss goals, allow time to see major improvements, and to make weight management a lifelong commitment.
Give your body the nutritional support it needs by eating fewer processed foods and inflammation-inducing foods. As the saying goes, garbage in, garbage out. You might just find that by eating the right foods, your symptoms improve.
Here’s a guide on what to eat:
Keep your joints limber and synovial fluid moving with regular exercise. Go for a walk or do low-impact aerobic or flexibility exercises such as swimming, jogging, pilates, biking, or walking. With walking or jogging, it’s best to only do on soft surfaces such as hiking trails, in order to minimize shock of leg joints and cause further aggravation. Light hand weights, kettlebells, or resistance bands can also be helpful for strengthening muscles and joints.
Aim for 30 minutes or more of aerobic exercise, at least five times per week. Not only will your joints benefit, but so will your cardiovascular and immune systems. Regular exercise can also lower inflammation and regulate the endocrine system, which can help stave off needing replacement surgeries.
If you have advanced arthritis or haven’t been active in awhile due to pain or stiffness, remember to take it slow. Walk laps inside your home or with supervision, if you have to, until your body is in the rhythm of being active again.
Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate pain associated with osteoarthritis by realigning the spine, hips, neck, and other joints in the body. Many chiropractors are also cross-trained in biofeedback, nutrition, massage or bodywork, acupuncture, or other holistic modalities that work well in conjunction with chiropractic care and can help keep nagging osteoarthritis pain at bay.
Natural therapies and remedies may help to lessen pain, but may not get rid of all the symptoms. If you’re looking for a long-term solution that gets to the source of what’s causing the inflammation and offers a safe and non-addictive pain relief solution, then you might consider Advanced Cell Training (ACT) to help you overcome symptoms of arthritis.
ACT is a self-healing modality that doesn’t use pills or machines. It taps into the innate healing power of your own body. Our proprietary training code method trains your body to identify the source of your symptoms (physical or emotional) and neutralizes your body’s reaction to the perceived threat or inflammatory response.
Training codes function as ‘instruction manuals’ that your body uses to correct the bodily behaviors that are causing arthritis pain and preventing you from living pain-free. We often hear from clients that they notice positive changes within the first couple of training sessions. Results are measured on a weekly basis and long-lasting, so no more short-lived gains like other therapies.
ACT is a home-based, results-focused program. You never need to visit our Rhode Island clinic (unless you want to stop by, you’re always welcome!) Before you start, you’ll fill out health forms to give us a baseline of your top ten symptoms. Then, before each training session, you’ll send us a weekly email update with symptom changes.
Gary Blier, ACT’s founder and practitioner, will review your health forms and weekly email updates while remotely muscle testing you to determine what your body wants to work on next.
After the class, you will receive two sets of codes: Class Codes and Individual Codes. Because classes tend to contain people with similar symptoms, the class codes definitely help. And your individual codes will focus on your specific issues. You will read both the class and individual codes once during the remainder of the week.
As your body hears the training codes, you may have some reactions to a specific set; this is part of your pre-class feedback to Gary. But your body will also start to take immediate action on the symptoms.
After you read the codes, you will listen to training music to help your body assimilate the new codes. You can work, sleep, or drive while listening to the music.
It’s that simple.
The ACT method does require an investment of time, attention, and the desire to get well, but it will take less time than we weekly visit to a doctor (and will cost less).
If you’re looking for a risk-free healing method for arthritis without side effects, then ACT could be a great solution to help you get control of pain and alleviate symptoms.
