What These Herbs Do?

Herbs are the natural way of cleansing metabolic waste products and other toxins from human body. Next to these traits, herbs are very beneficial to increase blood flow and aid lymph drainage. If toxins keep circulating in our body, they will cause inflammation. It will be worst if our body fails in controlling it and we will certainly be more vulnerable to diseases.

  1. Turmeric:

Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties are amazing. It is also known as curcuma longa and belongs to ginger family. This herbaceous native plant of southeast India works quite faster than any other herb (claimed in a lab study by National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine, US). Actually, curcumin (chemical present in turmeric) helps in protecting joints from swelling.

  1. Flax

Flax scientifically termed as ‘Linum usitatissimum’ is the best source of Omega-3 (ALA). According to experts, Omega-3 helps in fighting inflammation and also plays significant role in making our immune system stronger. You can use it in seed form or oil but keep the quantity low; two tablespoons are enough in your daily diet. This is because flax contains animal fats that can lead to inflammation in arthritis patients if used too much. Also, use flaxseed oil instead of seeds if you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. So, always ask your doctor first and then add anything to you diet.

 

  1. Aloe Vera:

Aloe Vera, this quite a familiar herb has astounding effects on human health. From centuries, it has been used as an alternative medicine because it shows no side effects when used topically. Aloe Vera gel is best to be applied topically and your achy joints will surely get relief. Aloe Vera is popular to treat small skin abrasions and to get relief from sunburn pain.

Topical Eucalyptus is used in oral medications and also as oil for topical use. ‘Tannis’ found in Eucalyptus plant leaves actually helps in treating the arthritis pain by reducing the swelling. Use heat pads for more improved effects of eucalyptus oil on your swollen joints.

  1. Ginger:

Ginger, a very commonly existing spice in your kitchen cabinet is another best herb with anti-inflammatory properties.  Along with strong flavor in your food, you can get good treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as it aids in reducing the joint swelling.
