Although arthritis literally means ‘joint inflammation’, anyone who has one of its many forms or related conditions knows the condition often extends far beyond bones and cartilage. Examples are Sjögren’s Syndrome, Psoriasis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
There are actually over 100 different forms of arthritis, many of which can and do attack other organs and parts of the body compounding the severity and debilitating effects arthritis can bring. Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osetoarthritis, and the various forms of Joint Arthritis are among the most common.
By some estimates, as many as 70 per cent of people with Fibromyalgia have symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) – abdominal pain and bloating along with constipation or diarrhea or alternating bouts of the two.
The most common symptoms associated with arthritis such as inflammation, pain, and stiffness are usually caused by degenerative arthritis (osteoarthritis).
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic form of arthritis. The early symptoms of RA can include fatigue, joint pain, and stiffness.
In this chronic disease, painful joint arthritis symptoms are always involved and inflammation of the joints is its hallmark. Each person is different though and there can be long periods of remission between episodes for some.
As it progresses, rheumatoid arthritis symptoms can manifest as flu like with overall achiness, muscle aches, and loss of appetite. The causes of rheumatoid arthritis are still unknown, although there is thought to be a genetic component.
Treatment Arthritis – Options
There are many different options for arthritis suffers. Depending on the severity of your particular case, you may need no more than an over the counter pain reliever to manage. More sever cases might require stronger prescription drugs or medical procedures.
There are a number of herbal supplements which have shown benefit for many suffering from arthritis. Supplements such as Glucosamine and Chondroitin, MSM, Niacin, SAMe, Soybean Oil, Superoxide Dismutase, Trypsin, and Vitamin C. One notable herb that has shown superior results is stabilized garlic extract.
Exercise or simple movement also can help the body to address the problem areas. Although this may be difficult for some due to the higher level of pain associated with their arthritis.
What Actually Works
There are any number of drugs, therapies, treatments, and OTC products. Most of which offer some sort of relief.
A combination of approaches and products is what most people find is needed. But remember the more "drugs" you choose to use, the more their side effects can combine to create their own set of problems. It can often be a catch 22 as to how much can you tolerate different side effects or a higher level of pain and discomfort from the arthritis.
One very promising approach is to use herbs, in particular garlic.
In the Middle Ages, herbalists commonly recommended crushing up fresh garlic into a piece of muslin and winding it around an arthritic joint. This was to ease the pain and help reduce the swelling.
Today we find that garlic’s stabilized allicin combined with ginger ( Alligin) is an ideal combination to take orally to help ease the misery of rheumatoid arthritis. Ginger can help to relieve the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis due to its anti-inflammatory effects. It also has a warming effect on the body, which helps to relieve symptoms. The gingerols found in ginger contribute to its stimulating properties and heat-promoting effects.
In fact, Alligin can help any from of arthritis as they all cause inflammation and pain.
Additionally, the broad-spectrum against which Alligin works is an important consideration with the large number and types of arthritis many of which may have a basis in bacterial or viral infections.
Arthritis Treatment Regimen
Take 2 Alligin 3 times a day either in addition to current medication or alone. The active ingredients will quickly get absorbed into the joints and help improve mobility.
This is a treatment that needs to be continued long-term.
Eventually, the dose may be reduced to 2 per day for maintenance increasing if additional flare-ups occur.
