According to a new study published in IOS Press, there is one thing that defines the treatment of arthritis. Without it, all drugs in the world wouldn’t help.
Interestingly, through testing an old, natural healing method, the subject not only improved this factor but they also drastically improved all markers of arthritis.
They placed half of their 72 subjects on an intensive eight-week yoga program.
Both before the yoga program and after its completion, the researchers collected blood samples from all 72 subjects to test for inflammatory markers.
They also used a scientific measure called a Disease activity score 28 erythrocyte sedimentation rate (DAS28ESR) to assess the disease activity at the beginning and the end of the eight weeks, along with a health assessment questionnaire disability index at those same times to check how functional the subjects were.
They gave their subjects something called the Beck Depression Inventory II scale every two weeks throughout the study to monitor their depression levels.
What they discovered was remarkable:
- Unlike the non-yoga group, the yoga group’s depression levels improved throughout the study at every stage that it was tested.
- The yoga group had substantially lower inflammatory chemicals in their blood than the non-yoga group.
- The yoga group’s arthritis was a lot less active when compared to that of the non-yoga group was.
- The yoga group was more functional and less disabled when compared to the non-yoga group was.
- Those whose depression lifted the most also experienced the greatest arthritis relief.
As that wasn’t enough:
The cells of yoga participants were healthier and aged slower. Their immune systems were better regulated to fight off infections without needlessly attacking the harmless joint tissue. Their nerve cells showed an increased ability to adjust and form neural connections to compensate for the disease (an ability scientist call Neuroplasticity).
It must be noted that the yoga regiment was intense, lasting 120 minutes for five days a week, a schedule that most people would be likely to complain about. But the benefits are worth it.
Reverse Arthritis in Fingers and Knees – Arthritis Caused By This Huge Food Group
It occurs when the cartilage in your joints wears away and causes the surrounding bones to rub against each other.
The medical system claims that this is caused by a strain on the joints, like working in jobs that require carrying heavy loads, or being under the strain of too much body weight.
However, a new study revealed that a specific food group – one almost all of us consume too much of – may be the biggest contributor to Osteoarthritis.
And cutting down on this specific type of food could reverse joint pain.
Initially, scientists wanted to study the effects between a high and low fat diet and its effect on the development of osteoarthritis in mice.
Thus, they put the mice on diets containing various amounts of fat and tested the mice’s knee joints over time.
Predictably, they found that higher dietary fat increased fatty acid metabolic enzymes inside the mice’s joint cartilage, a change that can gave rise to arthritis.
But the more interesting finding was that the mice on low-fat diets were no safer from osteoarthritis, due to the high amounts of carbohydrates in their diets.
In fact, when they put the mice on high carbohydrate diets, those with a normal body weight and those who were obese had the same risk for arthritis, showing that weight alone was not the culprit.
Children are extremely vulnerable. And this sets them up for trauma that can harm them for the rest of their lives.
A study has just appeared in the journal Rheumatology that reveals that if you suffer from arthritis, it’s very likely caused being exposed in a specifically harmful situation as a child.
In fact, this trauma increases your risk of arthritis by up to 67%.
This study started out innocently enough.
A team of French scientists wanted to know how much smoking could increase our risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis by.
To find out, they followed 98,995 women between 1990 and now, collecting questionnaires from them every two to three years.
These questionnaires included information regarding their health, any medical events they might have experienced, their environments, and their lifestyle details. They also had to report their arthritis diagnoses and medication.
Complete information was available for 71,248 of the women, with 371 of them reporting rheumatoid arthritis.
Unsurprisingly, active smokers were 38% more likely to develop arthritis than non-smokers, but this was where the predictability ended.
When they separated the active smokers, who were exposed to secondhand smoke as children, from active smokers who had not been so exposed, they found a difference.
Active smokers who received second hand smoke while they were children were also found to be 67% more likely to develop arthritis than active smokers whose parents had not smoked.
Most surprisingly, people who had never smoked but whose parents exposed them to second hand smoke as children were 43% more likely to have arthritis than people who had never smoked and who had not been exposed to second hand smoke as children.
In other words, passive smoking around a child during their adolescence and active smoking were estimated to be equally harmful when it comes to getting arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis also kicked in earlier in people who had taken in passive smoke as children.
Now, regardless of whether second hand smoking contributed to your arthritis, the main question would be how can you heal it today?

This post is from the Arthritis Strategy Program. It was created by Shelly Manning, a former arthritis sufferer and a health consultant.
A Brief Background on the Author
Like you, Shelly Manning also suffered from arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis. This was due to her weight and desk job. Her condition eventually took a toll on her relationship with her (former) husband.
It was when she went to Hong Kong that she met Janerdquo, an old woman who owned the restaurant where she ate. Janerdquo supposedly offered her a bowl of a weird-smelling soup, which helped ease her joint pain. She ate there each day for 10 days until she was completely healed from arthritis.
Shelly Manning decided to research this natural remedy and to create a step-by-step treatment plan to others who are suffering from different types of arthritis, such as gout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and psoriatic arthritis.
That’s why she created “The Arthritis Step By Step Strategy.” According to her claims, this unique strategy will get rid of joint pain and stiffness, repair your damaged joints, and treat the underlying cause of your arthritis.
Shelly teamed up with Christian Goodman, the owner of Blue Heron Health News, a publishing company that aims to help people to take responsibility for their own health by using natural health alternatives to reverse arthritis in fingers and knees naturally.
