There are many support remedies on the market for arthritis. You can take certain supplements like glucosamine and chondroitin, and then there are remedies such as avocado soybean unsaponifiables (ASU). This supplement is made from avocado and soybean oils. Other supplements that have been used to help with arthritis include rose hips, ginger and fish oil. All of these supplements have been used at one time or another by arthritis sufferers and been effective for them.
Besides supplements, you may want to look into other kinds of remedies, like topical rubs and creams.
Many health food stores and practitioners have remedies such as:
· OzHealth Arthritis Cream (which includes glucosamine, chondroitin, camphor and peppermint)
· PainAway Arthritis Cream
· Elmore Oil
These have all been shown to reduce the pain of arthritis and are now well supported by research. In fact, OzHealth Arthritis Cream has received nationwide press in Australia for its effectiveness and conclusive research.
You can try any or all of the remedies mentioned in this blog post, as they appear to have no side effects. It really depends on the type of arthritic pain you have and how you personally respond to each product. So, try each topical remedy, one at a time, to see what works. When you find one that works, stick with it. Use the complete tube, applying the cream three times per day, before discontinuing your trial.
