Arthritis Seasons & Remedies

I have shared with some of you in the past that I am an aromatherapy enthusiast, and recently acquired my certification. So, I am delighted to tell you that  I read lavender and rice warmed in the microwave can relieve some arthritis pain.   That’s right !  Why don’t you try it?

Put the dried lavender and rice in a pair of clean gloves or socks. Warm them in the microwave. After warming the items,  wear them to relieve the pain.  Not only will you feel better, but lavender, is known to have other therapeutic values like calming the nervous system; initiating deep relaxation, and emotional balance, to  name a few.

Those of us who are challenged with arthritic pain sometimes have flare-ups during rainy seasons and cold weather.  I for one feel that kind of pain more in my neck and shoulder.  Specifically during these periods, we want to pay attention to what we are eating.  Foods that help with inflammation and can be added to our diet are, for example: tomatoes;  ginger; olive oil; almonds; walnuts; raisins; fatty fish like albacore tuna; farmed salmon; mussels; and, anchovies.  Foods that we want to eat less of are, for example:  Red meat; french fries; pasta; candy; and soda.  You pretty much know whether you are eating too much of these items.
