Arthritis Articles, Tips and Information

Gout - Painful Form of Rheumatoid Arthritis

I am Dr. Patrick Flanagan, and this is my Doctor Health Secrets newsletter.

I am a scientist with over 300 inventions related to health, longevity and medicine. This newsletter installment is about a painful condition called gout and what effects it has on your body.

The most commonly affected area is the big toe, but other locations can also suffer, such as heels, ankles, hands, wrists, and elbows.

Pain Is Not The Name of The Game

No one likes pain, no one likes discomfort, and no one likes having to tell their friends that they have an affliction known as gout. Gout is an acute form of arthritis that causes severe pain, discomfort, and swelling in the joints. People who suffer from this ailment report that their joints feel as if they are on fire or are being burned by acid. Not two feelings that I would be too excited to have.

 

"Gout is one of the most painful types of arthritis," says Hayes Wilson, M.D., chief of rheumatology at Piedmont Hospital in

 

Atlanta. See, some people say that pain is something that can be lived with, but the people who say this are obviously not in

that much pain.

 

Same Name, Different Pain

Gout may be a form of arthritis, but unlike the typical arthritis that most people are familiar with, gout is caused by high levels of uric acid that cause urate crystals to settle in the tissues of the joints. Uric acid is formed in the body when

 

waste products, mainly purine, are broken down. There are certain foods that contain high levels of purine, such as brains, liver, dried peas and beans, sardines, and anchovies. Typically, the kidneys can filter out any excess uric acid through urine, but there are times when there is too much uric acid in the blood for the kidneys to handle. This condition is known as hyperuricemia, and the urate crystals that are left behind in the synovial fluids of the joints are called excruciating pain, or gout.

 

Eating certain foods, as well as obesity, can lead to this increase in uric acid, which subsequently causes the formation and

disbursement of uric crystals, but what exacerbates this process more than anything else is a lack of proper hydration. Pure,

clean water facilitates the removal of both uric acid as well as urate crystals. Toxins build up in the body, and with the

help of water, they can be easily removed. Water also acts as a natural lubricant, and those who have been personal victims

of gout can surely attests to the fact that their joints could use some extra lubrication.

 

Pain, Pain, Go Away

Although there is no cure for gout, there are certain steps that can be taken to both alleviate pain as well as limit the

frequency of the attacks.

 

Many people feel that when they drink water that the after effects are that of bloating and discomfort. Even more people

complain that the amount of water that is "recommended" to maintain a healthy body is both painful to gulp down as well as

time consuming. Most often, the water that people drink has an incredibly high surface tension. This means that the cells

have a hard time actually absorbing the water that one does drink, which leads to both bloating and the need to drink a lot

more water than is really necessary. A simple solution to this problem is to explore low surface tension water.

 

Though most tap and bottled water has high surface tenions, there are ways to make water more available to your body's cells.

Silica is a natural mineral and special forms of microcluster® silica are small enough to change the absorption properties of

water. Ask your vitamin store for it.

form called Microcluster® silica and silica hydride to dramatically increase longevity. Silica hydride is also the most

powerful antioxidant known. To learn more about Dr. Patrick Flanagan and ways to more beauty, health.

Natural Relief for Arthritis

 

Many arthritis sufferers do not like the idea of conventional medicine as a means of treating their ailment. They want natural arthritis relief.

 

They ignore the fact that extracts of plants and herbs are chemicals - and some chemicals can kill!

 

There are those who claim that, if a pill comes from ingredients from a plant, it is therefore "natural" and suitable for human consumption. Prescription medicines have undergone numerous tests, following rigid procedures until there is evidence that any drug or treatment really does work. Most natural products have not undergone such testing.

 

Many so-called "quack" remedies fall in the "natural" category; their acceptance depends on the fact that, for some unknown reason, the pain of arthritis tends to flare up and then subside. Frequently the symptoms subside while the patient is taking a particular "miracle cure" and the arthritis sufferer believes he or she is cured. However, it is not uncommon for the symptoms to return, worse than ever. The fact is, virtually any new treatment, effective or not, often seems to help at first, simply because the sufferer wants it to so desperately.

 

Willow Bark is an example of how "natural" remedies can gain their reputation. Willow Bark is used in treating arthritis but its' effect is a result of the salicylates or everyday aspirin it contains. Devil's Claw is also used to treat arthritis - and it is an analgesic (pain killer)that makes people consider it a "natural" remedy.

 

A product prepared from freeze-dried extract of green-lipped New Zealand mussels was touted as being effective in relieving the painful swelling and stiffness of arthritis; a variety of gold-based compounds make up a variety of drugs which temporarily banish the painful symptoms of arthritis; relief from arthritic pain is sought by many, especially sportsmen, wearing magnetic bracelets. Does it matter if these products actually work - or if the individuals just believe they do?

 

Actually it does matter: many of the untested products can cause serious side-effects - especially over the long term.

And what of our diets? Numerous theories have come and gone, including a "No Nightshade" diet et which eliminates members of the nightshade family of plants. Another theory "advised sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis to eat like the Eskimos!" Current advice follows along the lines of that given for sufferers of heart problems: eat lots of fish, cut back on animal fats, include plenty of fruits and vegetables. Experiment with eliminating dairy products. Does it make a difference in joint pain or stiffness?

 

Some of the most natural ways of dealing with arthritis may be just plain common sense: losing excess weight, mild exercise, reasonable rest, using moist and local heat to give the joint flexibility.

Treating Arthritis

Today with early treatment of arthritis, the progress of the disease can be slowed and in many cases the pain and crippling can be kept under control for years. At the first signs of the illness, arthritis treatment should be investigated. Among the treatments your doctor may suggest are medication, self-care, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Various medications may help to ease the pain and improve joint functioning. A physician should be consulted early in the disease to establish a plan of dealing with it.

Occasionally medicines taken by mouth or in the form of ointments, salves or gels lose their effectiveness, and the doctor may suggest injecting a joint space with a corticosteroid, which can offer some pain relief and reduce inflammation.

A therapist will help design an exercise program which, when interspersed with rest periods, will help reduce joint inflammation. After trying various treatments, a doctor may recommend surgical procedures to relieve disability and pain caused by arthritis.Joint replacement (arthroplasty) is a common procedure and the technique has improved greatly over the years. Now it is possible to insert a replacement joint through a 2 inch incision compared to the previous 4 or 5 times that length. In this procedure the surgeon removes your damaged joint and replaces it with a plastic or metal device (called a prosthesis). The shorter incision means less physical trauma, and many patients are able to get out of bed on the day after the surgery. This means shorter healing time and less pain.

 

Hip and knee joints are the most common replacements. Replacements in these large joints are most successful and can last at least 20 years in the majority of people who receive them. Today implants can replace your shoulder, elbow, finger and ankle joints.

These replacement joints have been described as beautiful items, complete with all the physical movements needed for the joints to function correctly in the body. The hip being a ball and socket, moves in every direction, helping one resume an active, pain-free lifestyle.

 

During surgery, the surgeon may perform lavage and debridement, procedures which remove blood, fluid, or loose debris and bone or cartilage fragments inside the joint.Surgeons also can permanently fuse bones in a joint (arthrodesis) to increase stability and reduce pain. The fused joint, such as an ankle, can then bear weight without pain, but has no flexibility. Surgeons can also reposition bones to help correct deformities. In summary, a wide variety of arthritis treatments are available but the importance of early management can not be overemphasized. Learn about this ailment and, with your doctor, develop a plan for dealing with it.

Handling Pain from Arthritis

 

Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints, the junctures where the ends of two bones meet. This common disability comes in more than 100 forms but for many sufferers, all they really want to know is how do I get arthritis pain relief.

 

Some detective work on the part of the sufferer may be called for. By determining when the symptoms pop up, it may be possible to manage some of the suffering. Pain in a joint may be felt during or after use, or after a period of inactivity. Discomfort may signal a change in the weather or be felt during it.

 

Although there's no cure for arthritis, available treatments can relieve pain and help you remain active. At the first signs of the illness, treatment should begin. Rest and easy exercise such as swimming may be effective starting points along with some over the counter medications to ease the pain and improve joint functioning.

 

Among the treatments your doctor may suggest are medication, self-care, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Occasionally surgery is recommended; some individuals seek relief from various forms of alternative medicine.

 

Medications include both topical and oral medications. Topical medications come in the form of sprays, gels, creams and ointments. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications may be sufficient to treat milder arthritis, but stronger prescription medications also are available.

OTC pain relievers such as acetaminophen can relieve pain but does not reduce inflammation. Taking more than the recommended dosage of acetaminophen can cause liver damage, especially if you consume three or more drinks of alcoholic a day.

 

Acetaminophen can also affect other medications you may be taking, so be sure to inform your doctor if you're taking it.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) work in two ways. They relieve muscle pain and fight inflammation (such as from rheumatoid arthritis). NSAIDs have risks of side effects that increase when used at high dosages for long-term treatment.

 

Discuss with your doctor before using other medications such as COX-2 inhibitors, and others which have different side-effects. Antidepressants, apart from their antidepressant qualities, especially tricyclics, can help reduce chronic pain. Some people with arthritis also experience symptoms of depression. Antidepressant medications can treat the sleep disturbance that can accompany arthritis. Occasionally, your doctor may suggest injecting a joint space with a corticosteroid, which can offer some pain relief and reduce inflammation. In addition, how well you live with arthritis often depends on your behaviors and attitude. If you actively manage your arthritis, you may be able to gain control over your pain.

Help for Arthritis

 

Arthritis tortures and disables more Americans than any other chronic disease. No wonder there is such a call for arthritis help.

Unfortunately, "quack" remedies are common. Their acceptance depends on the fact that, for some unknown reason, the pain of arthritis tends to flare up and then subside. Frequently the symptoms subside while the patient is taking a particular "miracle cure" and the arthritis sufferer believes he or she is cured. However, it is not uncommon for the symptoms to return, worse than ever. The fact is, virtually any new treatment, effective or not, often seems to help at first, simply because the sufferer wants it to so desperately. By determining when symptoms pop up, it may be possible to manage some of the suffering. Pain in a joint may be felt during or after use, or after a period of inactivity. Discomfort may signal a change in the weather or be felt during it.

 

There's no cure for arthritis but available treatments can relieve pain and help one remain active. Treatment should begin at the first signs of the illness. Rest and easy exercise such as swimming can ease stress on the joints. Over the counter medications may help to ease the pain and improve joint functioning. A physician should be consulted early in the disease to establish a plan of dealing with it.

 

Perhaps the first point to consider is the importance of reducing excess weight. Excess weight puts a serious burden on already inflamed or damaged joints. The sufferer can ease the load by using a cane to take weight off the arthritic hip or knee. Crutches or a walker can be helpful around the house.

 

Moist heat is helpful in reducing pain and increasing ease of movement. A simple hot bath or shower can be effective in easing early-morning stiffness. Local heat can do much to relieve discomfort and stiffness. Heat lamps can be used to apply heat to one or two stiff, aching joints. An electric heating pad is good for a large area such as the back or a hip. Twenty minutes is an adequate time period.

 

In severe cases, surgical procedures may be necessary; artificial joints may be implanted to replace those damaged beyond repair.

Attitude can be a major factor in helping deal with this frustrating ailment. It is important not to concentrate on the disease but rather expand your horizons away from your body. Do interesting things; try meditation and relaxation techniques. Don't concentrate on your disease. You are not your disease, but a person who happens to have arthritis.

Relief for Arthritis

Inflammation or degeneration of the joints is a common problem especially as one ages, and sufferers are constantly on the lookout for arthritis relief.

 

Popping a pill may be the first thought that comes to mind, perhaps a pain killer or one of the anti-inflammatory medications. The latter come in the form of pills, ointments, gels or salves and may provide the desired relief. However, if the problem persists, use of medication should be discussed with a physician so the sufferer is aware of possible side-effects and precautions with their use.

 

In spite of the pain, moderate daily exercise, such as swimming, walking, or perhaps physical therapy is critical if the arthritis sufferer is to maintain mobility in the joints. A therapist will help design an exercise program which, when interspersed with rest periods, will help reduce joint inflammation. Moist heat is helpful in reducing pain and increasing ease of movement. Heat is soothing and infra-red is a penetrating heat. Placed about 60cm or 24inches from the affected joint, for about 20 minutes, up to 3 times daily, it may be helpful, especially just before beginning an exercise routine. However, there is probably no long term benefit.

 

A physiotherapist may give advice on maintaining correct posture, during sitting and standing. Some individuals seek relief from various forms of alternative medicine. . Needless to say, excess body weight aggravates the problem.

 

In severe cases, surgical procedures may be necessary; artificial joints may be implanted to replace those damaged beyond repair.

Some detective work on the part of the sufferer may be called for. By determining when the symptoms pop up, it may be possible to manage some of the suffering. Pain in a joint may be felt during or after use, or after a period of inactivity. Discomfort may signal a change in the weather or be felt during it.

 

Although there's no cure for arthritis, available treatments can relieve pain and help you remain active. At the first signs of the illness, treatment should begin. Rest and easy exercise such as swimming may be effective starting points along with some over the counter medications to ease the pain and improve joint functioning.

Old Fashioned Cures: Arthritis And Home Remedy

Arthritis is a disease that affects millions of individuals all over the world.

Especially in this country, the number of arthritis sufferers is staggering; especially considering that to this date, there is no cure for the debilitating disease. Scientists have been working towards finding a cure in addition to finding reliable treatment programs that will allow patients to live life free from joint pain and aggravation.However, many sufferers are choosing to take the time to research arthritis and a home remedy on their own, turning to treatments used in generations past.For those suffering from arthritis and pain, a home remedy may be just the ticket to combat this disease.

 

The attacks that surround gout are usually sudden, and typically only last for about 5-10 days. The problem is, they can be reoccurring, so the fear and panic of not knowing is enough to cancel racket ball games worldwide.

 

A popular method of treating arthritis and a great home remedy is supplements.

By simply including the necessary vitamins and minerals, along with a quality diet, you can easily control your arthritis problems. Much like any problem concerning the body, nutrition is incredibly important. Remember the old adage, "you are what you eat" and choose foods that will benefit your body and condition.

 

For example, alfalfa contains a necessary ingredient in forming bones and ensuring bone strength.

Another popular remedy is the aquatic herb Bogbean. Since the herb works as an anti-inflammatory, eating this herb or taking the herb in a supplement form can dramatically aid you in combating arthritis. Other types of popular remedies include nutrition rich plants like ginger, known universally for its properties in fighting joint pain and stiffness.

 

Whether you add ingredient into your diet or take supplements containing the root, your joints are sure to the difference.

For individuals who are unable or unwilling to take typical over the counter anti-inflammatory medications--including aspirin or Advil--due to the harmful effects on the stomach, should consider using Boswellia. In addition to improving circulation and reducing inflammation, Boswellia will not cause any gastrointestinal pain or bleeding.
