5 Ways to Prevent and Reduce the Effects of Arthritis

Here’s 1 minute and 45 seconds video 5 Ways to Prevent and Reduce the Effects of Arthritis.

1. Eat Well

It is important that most of the food you eat is fresh.

You can also take dietary supplements for arthritis such as chondroitin, fish oils and glucosamine.

2. Move Well

Lack of mobility results in stiffening of the joints and possibly an earlier onset of arthritis.

A few types of exercise that are very beneficial include vigorous walking, yoga, Pilates, swimming, and water aerobics.

3. Sleep Well

Our body heals and repairs itself at night. Reduced sleep time equates to less healing time.

Poor sleeping posture and uncomfortable bedding can also cause and increase arthritis.

4. Think Well

Stress affects arthritis due to increased muscle tension and the release of stress hormones, increasing joint inflammation.

Reduce stress by: meditation, yoga, avoid drugs and alcohol, make time for humour and fun.

5. Healthy Spine and Nervous System

Your spine and nervous system play a crucial role in the prevention of arthritis

Avoid heavy lifting and activities that will possibly cause back injuries.

Focus on the cause and look after yourself to prevent arthritis from happening.
