You cannot engage in high-impact sports such as soccer, basketball or any kind of running because it will create mechanical stress in your joint and increase the symptoms of arthritis. Engaging in such sports can aggravate your situation and cause you a serious injury. However, low activity excersies such as walking, swimming and cycling can work wonders on your mobility and keep you active. Also, weight gain can make arthritis worse, so keep up these exercises to shed away those nasty pounds and keep them off.

  1. I have osteo, rhuematiod and poly arthritis, I am not able to walk. I have found the best thing for my hands is playing my guitar, banjo and uke. The best for my lower leg pain is acupuncture, sleeping is medical marijuana. I can’t have hip, knee or any joint replacement because my immune system is so weak. This is good advice anything is worth a try. My grandkids built raised bed garden boxes I can use from my mobility scooter. I started a website, I garden, play music, I’m restoring an old boat and I raise worms. I believe the answer is to stay busy, stay engaged with life and there is no room for self pity. I will never walk again, but I created a job for myself. It’s a matter of attitude and mind set.

  6. Here is a tea mix I drink daily. If you want to get rid of inflammation, build your immune system, eliminate many aches and pains, balance your blood pressure, balance your blood sugars and so much more, then begin drinking this tea.
    Here is the list:
    Nettles
    Fenugreek
    dandelion root
    dandelion leaf
    cleavers
    milk thistle
    dried shitake mushroom (break it into small pieces)
    rooibos
    burdock root
    These 9 herbs are the basic mix. Mix it all together and use a heaping tablespoon with 3-4 cups of water. Add a half teaspoon each of powdered ginger & turmeric. Drink at least 6 cups a day. Very easy to do.
    I also add reishi mushroom, prickly pear, fennel, milk vetch (astragalus).You can add these if you want, all are very good for your body.
    The tea tastes great and you can add honey to it or mint, it’s your choice. If you can’t get all the herbs at once, start with what you can get. If nothing else, then begin with nettles and fenugreek.
