How Rheumatism Affects Joints, Health


Rheumatic Disease

rheumatic diseaseRheumatic disease is not a medical condition, in itself. It describes a variety of things that cause joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons to become swollen and inflamed.

The term arthritis is also used to describe many of the symptoms which afflict our joints. This series of conditions does not only afflict the joints but can cause issues with internal organs such as the heart and lungs.

Some of the conditions that are classified under the category of rheumatic disease include: Tenosynovitis, rheumatiod arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, gout, psoriatic arthritis, anklosing spondylitis, rheumatioid heart disease, frozen shoulder, rheumatic fever, neck pain, capsulitis, bursitis, fibromyalgia and tendonitis.

Natural Help for Joint Pain & Inflammation

JointEase Plus is a natural herbal formula for arthritis and joint-related problems.

JointEase Plus provides relief from painful joint conditions, lower back ache; any form of arthritis, fibrositis, myalgia or rheumatism; degenerative musculoskeletal conditions.

JointEase Plus, which is formulated by a Clinical Psychologist, is a natural alternative to prescription anti-inflammatory drugs and manufactured to the highest pharmaceutical standards.

Some the common symptoms of these types of disorders include fever, swelling, stiff muscles, soreness and pain.

These medical conditions associated with rheumatic disease can only be diagnosed based on a physical exam, close look at your medical history and the symptoms.

X-rays and blood tests are especially helpful to doctors as they research your condition. If your symptoms are complicated you might be referred to a specialist called a rheumatologist.

The cause of each specific type is based on several factors including: toxins in the blood, exposure to cold and warm weather elements, genes, imbalances in the hormones and infections (from teeth, gall bladder or tonsils).

The symptoms of rheumatic disease can be treated in a variety of ways. Medicines can be used to treat the pain and inflammation. But beware because the side effects can be worse than the condition itself. Make sure that you discuss this with your doctor before agreeing to use any medication.

Alternative therapies for rheumatic disease are becoming increasingly popular. Physical therapy, massage, mobilization, acupuncture, tens and hydrotherapy have all shown positive results and are much safer than synthetic medicines.

It is important that you take care of your body by eating quality food, keeping your body weight in check and exercising often. Doing these things will help to reduce the symptoms and allow you to live a more healthy and productive life.

Herbal medicines, such as Devil’s Claw, can offer many benefits for treating rheumatic disease while allowing you to avoid the side effects of conventional medicine. Devil’s Claw is a good choice if you are dealing with inflammation.

Boswellia Serata is a good choice if you are looking to decrease both the pain and inflammation. It has also been shown to increase your body’s ability to repair and build cartilage. There is no harm in using both of these herbs together.

    I am more and more a fan of alternative therapies for conditions such as rheumatic diseases. I think we, as a society, are far too dependant on doctors and prescription medications. Sure, they have a purpose but they are not the only answer we have! My mother was really hooked up on getting us to the doctor at the slightest sickness. Antibiotics are starting to fail and we are simply overmedicated. I hope people wake up to the truth sooner than too late. ~Engress

    a hot shower or bath and soaking your joints also can help with pain
    symptoms. If your pain is severe, try using an ice pack or soaking your
    joints in cold water.
