Arthritis will affect nearly every one of us at some point in our lives. Thankfully, there are a number of treatment options to deal with arthritis. The most common is medication available either over the counter or from your doctor. The downside though is that the most of these medicines are very costly, and even if you’ve got health insurance the cost can still quickly add up. Also, drugs used to treat arthritis may come with undesirable side effects. You might want to think about trying natural arthritis remedies as an alternative to drugs.
A very important element in relieving the effects of arthritis is weight management. Being overweight or obese definitely doesn’t help, as the weight on your bones & soft connective tissues is larger. This translates into more pain & stiffness. Try to shed as much weight off as you can. Coupled with an active lifestyle, losing those extra pounds should be no problem.
Eating healthy is another great part of the home remedies for arthritis plan that anybody should know. A diet made of fruits, vegetables & low fat dairy products will do wonders for bone structure & joint health. Getting enough calcium to your bones is essential when having arthritis. Also, taking food supplements may be a solution, but asking for a physician’s advice is sensible.
Some other natural remedies are:
  • Glucosamine
This supplement is among the most widely used natural arthritis treatment & can help immensely to ease your pain without the use of traditional painkillers. Glucosamine has 2 major benefits for arthritis sufferers. It decreases inflammation & at the same time lubricates the joints. Glucosamine comes in both sulfate & hydrochloride forms. Both have been proven equally effective in treating arthritis symptoms.
  • Chondroitin
Having similar properties to Glucosamine, chondroitin is yet another very popular natural supplement to lessen joint inflammation for arthritis sufferers. You may find that combining chondroitin along with glucosamine will ease inflammation more effectively than using just one of these products alone. Chondroitin functions much like glucosamine by reducing joint inflammation & pain.

The Lazarus Cure

One day my friend Jake hopped onto his bicycle and, like he had done many times before, my good friend and "weekend warrior" entered himself into a long-distance racing event. 

The event was to last seven days. But Jake never made it to the end of the first day. 

He suffered a massive heart attack and died before reaching the hospital. 

He was 63 years of age. 

When I heard the news I was as shocked as anyone. 

I am no stranger to death, but when someone with vitality is suddenly snatched away like this it is a sombre reminder that no-one is immune to the laws of biology, and that we take our fate in our hands every single day that we take our health for granted.

I do not know what killed Jake that day. Many factors might have contributed. Stress, diet, high blood pressure coupled with poor medical intervention, or none at all... Who knows? But I can say two things with some degree of certainty. 

The first is that despite the apparent "out of the blue" nature of his death…

The Truth About Whey Protein And Your Nasty Belly Fat

A simple way to keep your muscles strong as you get older (and it isn't exercise) 
This one step can strengthen aging muscles, boost your immune system, and even help you manage your weight.
It’s normal for our muscles to lose tone and become a bit flabby as we age. But just because it’s normal, it doesn’t mean it’s good.

Not only are flabby muscles unsightly, they’re also a sign that we’re losing muscle mass and strength.

Losing muscle mass makes it harder to do the things you take for granted. Like walking up stairs. Lifting a bag of groceries. Or recovering your balance instead of falling.

Losing strength also makes you more prone to injuries that can keep you from enjoying the activities you've loved for years. It's a major reason people lose mobility and end up in nursing homes.

We all want to stay strong and vital for as long as possible. So many of us turn to exercise. While a regular exercise program can help, it’s often not enough. We need to feed our muscles, too. What…
