Sip ginger tea

Some preliminary studies have suggested that ginger has anti-inflammatory properties. It seems to work by curbing pain-causing chemicals that are part of the body’s inflammatory response—without the side effects common in medications. Use powdered, raw, or lightly cooked fresh ginger liberally on food. Make your own ginger tea by simmering slices of ginger for 15 minutes in a few cups of boiling water, or buy ginger tea bags at the supermarket.

Eat inflammation-fighting foods


Ditch the fast food, junk food, fried food, and processed food if you want to improve joint pain. A review of several nonrandomized studies of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients found that those who switched to a Mediterranean-style eating plan (think fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains, fish, olive oil, nuts, garlic, onions, and herbs) had a reduction in pain inflammation and increase in some physical function as a the 1 last update 2020/06/02 result.

Breathe in fragrant spices

Pleasant aromas like lavender may alter the perception of pain. Japanese researchers found that lavender reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which can make you feel relaxed and less aware of pain. But lavender isn’t the only pleasant aroma that works as a natural home remedy for arthritis pain relief. Korean researchers found that arthritis patients experienced less pain and were less depressed when they were exposed to the aromas of a variety of kitchen spices, including marjoram, rosemary, and peppermint. For a pain-soothing aromatherapy treatment, add a teaspoon of one of these dried herbs to a quarter-cup of olive, coconut, or vegetable oil. Take a whiff periodically. Don''{"":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''t use a synthetic-fiber sock, which could melt if heated.) Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes. When it cools down slightly but is still nice and warm, place it on sore, stiff joints. Your DIY heat pad should stay warm for about half an hour. The rice grains will shape to your body and provide soothing heat. If you have lavender or another fragrant herb on hand, toss it in with the rice grains for an additional relaxing aromatherapy treatment, too.

Make your own capsaicin cream

Capsaicin, the compound in chili peppers that gives them their heat, is an ingredient in many over-the-counter pain relief ointments. It works by reducing levels of a compound called substance P, which transmits pain signals to your brain. You can whip up your own massage oil by mixing a few dashes of ground cayenne with 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil. Apply it with gauze to unbroken skin on your painful joints several times a day. The first few doses will cause a mild burning sensation on the surface of your skin, but you’ll become desensitized to that feeling after a week or so. Just be sure to keep it away from your mouth, eyes, and other mucous membranes, where it will really sting.

Apply a chamomile tea poultice

Chamomile is an anti-inflammatory that may help with joint-pain relief. Brew a strong infusion using four chamomile tea bags in a cup or so of hot water. Steep, covered, for 20 minutes, then squeeze and remove tea bags. Soak a clean cloth in the cooling liquid and apply to achy joints.

Give joints the cold-hot treatment

You’ll need two containers for this hot-cold treatment—but the relief is palpable and worth the trouble. Fill one container with cold water and a tray of ice cubes; the other with hot water at a temperature you can tolerate to touch. Starting with cold, immerse the aching joint for a minute, then switch to the hot water and immerse for 30 seconds. Keep switching from cold to hot for about 15 minutes, immersing the affected joint in each for 30 seconds each time. Finish with cold water and hold for a full minute.

Go for a swim

Stir in some turmeric

The yellow spice found in curries and ballpark mustard contains a powerful compound called curcumin, which inhibits enzymes and proteins that promote inflammation. Several studies have found that turmeric specifically reduces pain and swelling in arthritis patients. How to get some curcumin in your diet? Sprinkle ½ teaspoon on rice or in vegetables daily. Or keep some packets of ballpark mustard in your pocket and break them out at lunchtime—it''{"":[[300,1050],[300,600],[300,250],[160,600]]}''{"":"","":"","":""}''{"":[[300,250],[3,3]],"":[[320,50],[300,250],[3,3]],"":[[728,90],[640,360],[3,3],[300,250]],"":[[970,250],[970,90],[728,90],[3,3],[300,250]]}''{"":"","":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''{"":[[300,1050],[300,600],[300,250],[160,600]]}''{"":"","":"","":""}''{"":[[300,250],[3,3]],"":[[320,50],[300,250],[3,3]],"":[[728,90],[640,360],[3,3],[300,250]],"":[[970,250],[970,90],[728,90],[3,3],[300,250]]}''{"":"","":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''{"":[[300,1050],[300,600],[300,250],[160,600]]}''{"":"","":"","":""}''{"":[[300,250],[3,3]],"":[[320,50],[300,250],[3,3]],"":[[728,90],[640,360],[3,3],[300,250]],"":[[970,250],[970,90],[728,90],[3,3],[300,250]]}''{"":"","":"","":""}''{"":"","":""}''t lift up the heel, which puts more pressure on the joints.

Pair them with foods that help reduce inflammation and pain for a meal that really reduces your arthritis pain.

Soak up some sun

Many people with arthritis are deficient in vitamin D, which appears to play a role in the production of collagen in joints. Studies find that getting more vitamin D may benefit those with rheumatoid arthritis, too. To boost your D levels, get some sun for 10 to 15 minutes every day, two to three times a week—that''{"":"","":""}''s working for you, you should experience relief within two to three months.
