Nutrition: Omega 3

Research has found that omega-3s help the body fight inflammation, including the inflammation of arthritis.

Omega-3s come in several types, most with 3-letter acronyms. For fighting inflammation, the most potent are EPA and DHA, found in fish oil and algae oil supplements. For most people with arthritis, we recommend 1,000 mg daily.

Foods with your daily dose of omega-3s:

3 oz. Salmon

3 oz. Sardines

3 oz. Mackerel

Supplements we recommend for our clients:

Movement

We know it can be tough to exercise when you have arthritis. Joint pain and stiffness can make it hard to move much at all. But there are ways you can still reap the benefits of physical activity for both your general health and arthritis relief.

The best exercises are low-impact. Walking, swimming, tai chi, pilates, and biking are all great options.

Avoid high-impact exercises, like running or high intensity training.

How vigorous? In general, aim for being able to talk, but not sing.

Try warming up with gentle movements for at least 5-10 minutes.

Apply gentle heat before activity, and ice after for up to 20 minutes each.

Feeling sore 2 hours later? You may have overdone it. Give your joints a chance to recover, and do less next time.

*Be sure to discuss your plans with your doctor before beginning a new exercise program.

Energy Healing

Although many still consider it woo, energy healing has been researched since the 1970s, showing impressive results on humans, plants, animals, and cells. Randomized placebo-controlled trials on energy healing for arthritis have shown increased mobility and decreased pain with little-to-no side effects.

You can think of it this way. Energy (or chi) is produced by all living cells. You may have felt energy in this way if you’ve taken Tai Chi classes. Energy healing works by adjusting the energy surrounding these cells to promote healing.
