SIMPLE BUT VERY EFFECTIVE HOME REMEDY FOR ARTHRITIS ( Vata )


There are two main kinds of Arthritis- Osteo and Rheumatoid, both of which affect the joint in different ways
Osteoarthritis is when the cartilage between bones wears down, until bone grates on bone.
Rheumatoid is little less straightforward, being caused by an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation of the synovial membrane (a soft tissue that protects joints in the body) and that can lead to bone loss. Whichever you experience, there are natural remedies for arthritis to manage the pain and ease the symptoms.
1. Turmeric & Ginger Tea
Turmeric and ginger are both anti-inflammatorys, and will help with oseto and rheumatoid arthritis. Turmeric in particular has gotten a lot of attention lately. Its active ingredient is something called curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant. In addition, it lowers the levels of 2 enzymes responsible for causing inflammation (which is what we’re often fighting with arthritis.) You can take these in a capsule form or make a nice spicy tea to enjoy daily.
You will need…
-2 cups of water
-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
-1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
-Honey to taste
Directions
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, and had ½ teaspoon each ground ginger and ground turmeric. Reduce to a simmer and let it be for 10-15 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste, and enjoy twice daily.
This will make 2 servings.
2. Epsom salt soak
Epsom salt has naturally occurring mineral called magnesium sulfate ,which has been used to get relief from pain for years. This simple remedy does wonder for the tired feet too.
You will need…
-1/2 cup of Epsom salt
-A large bowl
-Warm water
Directions
Fill a large bowl with warm water and add ½ cup of Epsom salt. Stir it around, and then submerge your sore joints in the liquid. If you are experiencing pain in a less convenient place to soak, such as your knees, try taking a bath with Epsom salts. Run a tub full of warm water and add 2 cups of Epsom salt. Soak for 15 minutes (at least.)
Try these home remedies and do some gentle exercise to keep your joints supple and healthy .
