Have you ever experienced joint pain? Many Americans struggle with arthritis, joint pain, and the autoimmune form of arthritis called RA or rheumatoid arthritis. All of these hurt, all of these are uncomfortable, and all of these cause a level of discomfort to our daily lives. So what do we do? Do we just call it genetics? DO we just call it what has been passed down from Grandma and Grandpa? Or do we see how there are many natural ways to battle these forms of arthritis? I want to focus on the most difficult version of all of these, rheumatoid arthritis. RA as its called is a form of an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune just means that the body’s own immune system has decided that the joints are an invader of the body and the immune system actually starts attacking our joints. Weird isn’t it? However it is a real condition. As time goes on, the joints can break down to the point where there is a deformation of particular joints such as the hands. Hopefully you are reading this before that time has come. Catching rheumatoid arthritis early is the key. There are so many ways to support this condition in a lifestyle-oriented manner.
Here are some natural lifestyle methods to help support and battle the challenges of RA. Keep in mind with any autoimmune disease such as RA, lupus, or Hashimoto’s, that the autoimmune condition is typically not going away. However, I always compare it to a light switch. Once you turn the light switch on, you may not be able to turn it off. However, there is the ability to add a dimmer switch to keep the light levels down. So even though the condition is there, there is hope to keep the symptoms down. That is how you battle it. And that is how you win. So lets look at some ways to add some new lifestyle choices into your daily routine.
1.Eat Anti-Inflammatory Foods
This is the golden rule. You can’t do anything in health without great nutrition. It all starts with what we eat. Follow the foods in our coaching system eating plan.
2.Use Tart Cherry Juice
I can’t tell you how many people I have personally seen benefit from using tart cherry juice. The research is nothing short of amazing. I have used it clinically with patients with RA and seen dramatic results. Reducing inflammation and joint pain are some just some of the amazing healing benefits of tart cherry juice. Cheribundi is the one we use.
Forever science has been saying don’t do it if it hurts when it comes to arthritis. Now we know differently. You have to move the body…daily. So if it hurts to run, swim or bike. If it hurts to lift weight use bands and balls. Whatever you have to do, get moving. It is vital for your success.
4.Check Your Fatty Acids
This is a key. In medicine we simply don’t check what our fatty acid levels are, yet it makes up the majority of how our body functions. We must know our omega 3 fat levels to have any success with any autoimmune health challenge. These key fats make up every cell wall in our bodies. They are essential for all functions. If you want to get them tested, we test them in our advanced coaching system.
5.Determine Your Immune Pathway
There is a simple test that we use in our coaching system that will help you learn the exact pathway for the autoimmune to be suppressed. Certain foods can keep the symptoms to a minimum and give you ultimate relief and better quality of life.
