Reduce Arthritis Pain With Herbal Teas

herbal-teas Arthritis is characterized by inflammation of joints in our body. There are different types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout are some of the common types of arthritis. Pain, joint stiffness, inflammation and tenderness of the joint are some of the common symptoms of this joint disorder. Several home remedies are available for reducing arthritis pain.

Certain herbs are extremely beneficial for treating arthritis pain. Teas made from these arthritis pain-alleviating herbs could provide relief from the debilitating arthritis pain.

Celery tea
In Europe, celery is used for centuries for treating arthritis pain. Celery is packed with a large number of anti-inflammatory plant chemicals. It is also rich in potassium. It is believed that potassium deficiency could increase arthritis related inflammation and pain. When your arthritis pain increases, you can have three cups of celery tea every day. To make celery tea, steep one teaspoon of celery seeds in a cup of boiling water for about ten to fifteen minutes.

Alfalfa tea
Alfalfa tea could significantly reduce the symptoms of arthritis. To prepare alfalfa tea, boil 1oz of alfalfa leaves in a liter of water for 20 to 30 minutes. Strain the decoction and drink it three to four times each day, until your arthritis pain subsides.

Black Cohosh tea
Black Cohosh is used by folk healers for treating arthritis pain. The nutrients present in this herb are antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory. To prepare black cohosh tea, put one teaspoon of black cohosh root in a pot. Pour a cup of boiling water over the black cohosh root. Allow the decoction to stand for about twenty minutes. Now strain and have it.

Ginger tea
Ginger tea is one of the safest medicines for treating arthritis pain. Unlike most herbal teas, you can consume ginger tea for a prolonged period, without the fear of any side effect. Ginger tea is beneficial for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis patients. To prepare ginger tea, boil two teaspoons of crushed ginger in two cups of water for about 20 to 30 minutes. Strain the decoction and drink it two to three times every day to reduce your arthritis pain.

    Well another bit of info that i would like to share here. I got this piece of knowledge from my cousin’s favorite site that i’ve mentioned earlier. Pheww…i never knew that OA is more common in women than men and over-weight ppl are more prone to it. I guess women should be little cautious about their health issues, diet and must exercise regularly.

  • I suffer terribly with arthritis in my hands but as soon as I stopped eating red meat it made a huge difference. I still eat fish and I can’t resist bacon (who can!) but I’m sure it is because I’m no longer eating the fats in the meat that has helped me.

  • Arthritis is one of the most common causes of chronic pain. But, arthritis pain relief is not so common. There are over one hundred diseases associated with arthritis, affecting areas in and around joints. I am totally agree with you that natural and herbal treatment is better! I have a mild Arthritis which comes and go. I am taking medicines which is prescribes by my doctor but I am still looking for a natural and alternative way to control Arthritis. I am going to use this tea. Hope I will come out from this problem as soon as possible.
