Rheumatism is a general term for any chronic inflammation and pain in the muscles and joints. These include gout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and other diseases.
Treatment Plan for Rheumatism, chronic
These ailments are usually brought on by too much pathological heat in the body, often due to the chronic consumption of alcohol, white sugar, red meat, and refined foods containing these ingredients. When this is added to mechanical stress (such as an injury), overwork, and weakened adrenal function, inflammation can arise in a joint. Remedies for rheumatism include a diet rich in fresh whole vegetables, fruit in season, grains, legumes, and a little meat (not more than 2-3 x/week). Regular use of flax seed oil can make sure the supply of essential fatty acids is adequate. Stress release, ample rest, and exercise are also important. Herbal remedies include circulatory stimulant herbs and anti-inflammatory or heat-clearing herbs. When a rheumatic condition becomes chronic, it will take time to reverse this process with a total health and herb program, but it is very possible to be pain-free and flexible if you are consistent!
