5 Ways to Treat Arthritis

20 Million Americans suffer from degenerative Arthritis problems. Arthritis tends to worsen with age, so it is important that you do all that you can do to lessen the spread of your arthritis pain.

1. Exercise – Exercise lightly for 20 to 30 minutes a day. Do not over-exercise as this can cause strain on joints. Avoid anything that produces pain for up to 1 hour after the exercise is over. Sometimes a quick walk will help, but do not try to “walk off” the pain. Stop when it becomes too much.

2. Posture – always maintain good posture. Sit up straight in chairs and stand with your shoulders back. Never lift with your back – lift with your hips and legs. Never carry something you can push or pull behind you. If something is too heavy for you, ask for help

3. Joint Exercises – Practice daily motions or attend physical therapy regularly. Ask your physiotherapist about hydrotherapy – a form of joint therapy which is gentle on the joints and done in water.

4. Protect your joints – Protect your joints by wearing warm clothing. Braces and joint wraps may also help by giving your joint support. Sleep on a firm mattress, make sure you get 8 hours of sleep everyday, and avoid sitting in soft chairs.

5. Pain Relief – talk to your doctor about taking arthritis pain like Aspirin or Aleve. You can also use indomethacin, ibuprophen or naproxen for arthritic pain

Is Swearing Actually Good For You?

Well according to recent studies, swearing may actually be good for you. Swearing has often been frowned upon by society and mothers everywhere. However, recent research could suggest that swearing will help alleviate pain. Swearing has been shown to increase your pain tolerance by doing a few things to your body.

According to Richard Stephens of Keele University in Staffordshire, U.K, swearing works by increasing the heart rate and decreasing the perception of pain, which in turn helps lessen pain. This may be why, for many of us at least, it seems natural to swear when we experience some sort of pain.

The study used 67 undergraduate students and required them to place their hands into water at a temperature of 5° Celsius and leave their hands in for as long as possible. The students that were repeating swear words lasted an average of about 40 seconds longer than the students repeating neutral words.

Another interesting fact is that although swearing helped reduce pain for both sexes significantly, women experienced a greater decrease in perceived pain than their male counterparts.

Stephens does recommend swearing if you hurt yourself however, he also warns that the more we swear the less potent the relief is. The reason is most likely due to the more we swear the less emotionally potent the word becomes and without said emotion the swear word becomes a less effective pain reliever.

Why More People Should Consume the Recommended Daily Amount of Magnesium


Protects the Heart: Magnesium helps protect the heart from many things including, heart arrhythmias, blocked arteries, and high blood pressure. Magnesium deficiency can result in deadly health events for many people. Heart arrhythmias, the irregular and abnormally fast heartbeats or atrial fibrillation, can be prevented or at least, may be helped by consuming adequate amounts of magnesium. People with higher amount of magnesium in their blood cut the odds of dying from blocked or narrowed arteries by an enormous one-third. Furthermore, magnesium deficiency may result in higher blood pressure whereas; higher magnesium in your cells promotes lower blood pressure, more elastic blood vessels and a less enlarged heart. Additionally, research shows that lower amounts of magnesium lower the good HDL cholesterol and increases rate at which arteries harden.

Protects Against Diabetes: Eighty percent of diabetics have been found to have low intracellular magnesium. Further research suggests that the risk of type-two diabetes is increased by one-third with low amounts of magnesium. Magnesium supplements can improve insulin activity and may actually decrease the risk of diabetes and other complications.

Pain Relief: Magnesium can actually help relieve pain by reducing a pain transmitter in the nervous system called substance P. To help avoid or relieve muscle cramps, try taking 100mg to 400mg of magnesium every day. Furthermore, extra magnesium may also prevent or relieve painful myalgias, chronic lower back pain, restless legs syndrome, erythromelalgia (a painful dilation of the skin blood vessels), and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Promotes Safer Pregnancies: Research shows that magnesium lessons pre-eclampsia (a medical condition where hypertension arises in pregnancy) which increases the risk of spontaneous abortion and premature, low-birth weight babies. A British study of 10,000 women in 33 different countries confirmed that taking magnesium sulphate supplements cut the risk of pre-eclampsia in half.
