Arthritis is a condition which involves the acute/chronic inflammation of joints in the body. I have been working with patients for years who have suffered from this condition (due to either genetic predisposition, unfavourable diet, lifestyle, occupation and/or illness). I have found that nutritional changes, supplementation and acupuncture have given the best results for patients. Remember that many different types of arthritis exist, and different treatments are suited for different people depending on their unique body requirements, health history and/or current medications/supplements. I have found that acupuncture can help patients overcome the symptoms of pain associated with inflammation most efficiently, however, lifestyle and nutritional changes are most useful for long-term prevention of arthritic flares.
This page is intended to be a resource for people interested in arthritis information -- I will add links and more information regularly for those looking for Naturopathic tips for this condition.
