Natural Solutions for arthritis part #2

Natural Solutions for Arthritis Part #2 

TARGET: Muscular Skelatol System
Survival: Medicine


Rheumatoid  arthritis is a pain which targets the muscular skeletal system. In many cases effects joint area muscles but not limited to. This happens over time as oxidation forms within the joints causing inflammation there are many temporary solutions to help ease the pain and control the ability to control your own articulation thus limiting range of motion throughout. 

There are internal and topical solutions as well as solutions with aromatherapy. But the only way to make the problem go away for good is to find the root cause of oxidation and inflammation. With internal supplementation. 

A powerhouse of a herb for arthritis pain is White Willow Bark this herb targets nerves and has an aspirin like effect and has blood thinning properties. The body converts the salicin in the white willow bark and other species of the white willow family into salicylic acid. White willow is also good in aiding in most pains while providing a good supply of blood to the nerves and nerve endings loaded with healthy oxygen.This herb also has anti-inflammatory properties which aids also in inhibiting inflammation.

White willow barks ability to manage pain effectively may take a bit longer than normal aspirin but willow lasts longer and as aspirin has the ill effect in some to irritate the stomach lining willow will not cause these effects.

It is also said salicylic acid is used to dissolve warts and corns try using a little white willow on the wart or corn to dissolve it.

White willow bark is also good for Oral Care such as toothaches and nerve pain specific.

Other good herbs for arthritis are: (Short List)

Essential Oils:

after the 4 weeks strain and press herbs back into the stained oil.

Warm infused oils: ( Quicker good for quick needs but has a shorter shelf life)
 In a  stainless steel or enamel pot add 1 1/2 cups of good quality olive oil  and bring to a very low simmer once you reach the simmer point back off the heat
