Limitations of Prescription Medicines in Arthritis

Can an Anti-Inflammatory Diet Really Help Relieve Arthritis Symptoms?


According to National Institutes of Health (NIH), one out five people in the United States are suffering from arthritis. A person with arthritis can feel a swelling in the joints accompanied by pain. Since the joints are inflamed, redness as well as warmth can be noted along the area of the joint, as these are common symptoms of inflammation. There are many medications that can treat arthritis but the most recommended and most effective treatment often include a lifestyle and diet change. The best diet treatment for arthritis is to adapt to a diet consisting of food ingredients that work to prevent or fight off inflammation. However, if you are already suffering from arthritis and you continue to eat food rich in trans fat, saturated fat and simple refined carbohydrates then you may find that the arthritis becomes more progressive as such foods can make the inflammation worse.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are probably the most common type of medication prescribed to treat inflammation and moderate pain. Common examples of these are indomethacin, dicolfenac (Voltaren), and ibuprofen (Advil) although there are a number of others as well. It should be noted though that not all NSAIDs are equally efficacious. Although these can be effective pain relieving medications they do come with some degree of risk and possible side effects. Broadly speaking these can include gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea, vomiting, gastric ulceration and even bleeding. And the longer you take this kind of medication and the larger the dosages the greater chance you run of experiencing an ulceration condition. For this reason, it is generally recommended that you take the lowest possible effective dose and for as short a time as possible. NSAIDs also tend to reduce the blood flow to your kidneys, which can slow down the kidney function. Taken at high doses, NSAIDs over time may even cause permanent damage to your kidneys. Allergic reactions NSAIDs can also cause extreme allergy. People with asthma are at a higher risk for experiencing serious allergic reaction. Many specialists recommend that people who have asthma avoid any NSAID, especially if they have sinus problems or nasal polyps. Individuals with a serious allergy to one NSAID are likely to experience a similar reaction to a different NSAID. Because of these potential problems, it is especially important that you check with a physician before taking such medicine. And you want to follow the physicians advise closely and never take a prescribed medicine for anything other than the condition for which it was prescribed. So, with the many possible and potentially serious side effects that can result from the use of such medications, more and more osteoarthritis suffers are seeking natural based therapies. Provailen, for example, is a safe alternative that has proved to be effective without resulting in side effects. Working to ensure permanent relief of the major symptoms which are often experienced including: swelling, stiffening and pain

Benefits of Exercise
The causes of joint pain vary greatly on an individual basis.

But while the cause of joint pain may vary, the treatments are often similar. Common treatments for pain in the joints include: prescription medications and over-the-counter pain

physical therapy joint supplements topical creams and ointments. However, exercise is one of the most effective forms of managing achy, painful joints, and is also free and can be performed in the privacy of ones own home! Exercise provides pain relief in a number of ways. 1. First of all, regular workouts increase production of endorphins and other painrelieving chemicals in the brain. These substances, often called feel-good chemicals, reduce pain, stress and anxiety, and lead to an overall feeling of calm and well-being. 2. Exercise also reduces joint pain by increasing circulation. With the proper blood flow, cartilage receives hydration and lubrication. This reduces pain by providing joints with adequate cushioning and protection. Workouts also strengthen muscles and promotes weight loss, which reduces strain and pressure to joints, ligaments and tendons.

Digg StumbleUpon For a few anti inflammatory diet tips, here are some basic foods that can help you treat and alleviate the symptoms of arthritis: 1. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C According to the author of Food Cures, Joy Bauer, inflammation in the body can lead to the fast production of free radicals. These free radicals are cells that can destroy the structure of molecules. This is where antioxidants come in. The destructive effects of free radicals can be lessened as

antioxidants can protect the body from it. Research has even shown that there are particular antioxidants that can even help prevent the progression of arthritis and can relieve joint pain. Vitamin C can help strengthen collagen (collagen being a large and important part in cartilage). Research has also shown that people who intake a smaller than average amount of Vitamin C are more prone to developing a type of arthritis. However, another research at Duke University has found out that while Vitamin C can help in preventing arthritis, it must be taken in moderate amounts as too much Vitamin C can actually worsen osteoarthritis. Click here to learn How Anti Inflammatory Diet Relieves Arthritis Symptoms 2. Good Oils and Fats It was mentioned earlier that trans and saturated fat could worsen the inflammation in arthritis. However, not all fats are bad and some are actually needed by the body in order to stay healthy. According to Foods that Fight Pain by Neal Bernard, The Omega-3 is a polyunsaturated fat that can prevent enzyme and cytokine production. These cytokines and enzymes can actually erode the cartilage of the joints, which can aggravate inflammation. 3. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil As stated in the article Olive Oil and the Cardiovascular System by Covas MI, olive oilactually contains monounsaturated fatty acid oleic acid. This monounsaturated fat and its increased consumption in olive oil has been shown to contribute to a decreased risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis and can prevent inflammation as it protects the body from it. Olive oil also contains antioxidants called polyphenols that help the body fight against inflammation. These are just a few of the basic dietary categories that you can explore and consider fitting these into your dietary habits. You can also consult further with your physician for advice specific to your condition.

of arthritis, which, in its severe condition, can lead to inflammation. Below is a list of known over the counter antiinflammatory drugs used for the treatment of arthritis. 1. Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) These drugs reduce inflammations, mild to moderate pain, and fever in as fast as 15 minutes. NSAIDs are available either as Ibuprofen or Naproxen in different brands and generic names. NSAIDs are safest when taken in small doses for a short period of time, but can generate adverse side effects with increased dosage and term of use. Side effects include upset stomach, high blood pressure, headache and dizziness, kidney problems, etc. Although minor side effects will fade away on their own after reducing the dose, others may be more serious and require medical attention. 2. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) There is no official explanation yet as to how acetaminophen relieves pain, but this drug has been used for this purpose for many years now. It is very effective when used in small amounts, but it can damage the liver over time, especially when mixed with alcoholic beverages, or when taken by an individual with a history of liver disease. A very high dose of acetaminophen can result in total liver failure.Many consumers do not know that acetaminophen overdoses can cause serious liver injury. Consumers tend to think that since acetaminophen is a familiar product that has been marketed for decades and is therefore completely safe. 3. Corticosteroids Corticosteroids reduce the hyperactivity level of the immune system, thereby moderating the symptoms of a disease. These over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs can also be injected directly into the joints of patients with arthritis.Corticosteroids should not be taken on an empty stomach. With prolonged use, these drugs can cause vulnerability to infections, diabetes, and osteoporosis. 4. Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDS)DMARDs do not only treat the symptoms of arthritis, but also delay destruction of the joints. These over the counter antiinflammatory drugs alter the effects of the disease in the body. However, DMARDs can have certain side effects such as low white blood cell counts, blood or protein in the urine, diarrhea, skin rashes, and balding.
